January 1st 1996
Love,bullysticks, fetching balls, walks,cookies & food!
being blind, Tovah stealing his ball, not getting food/bullysticks, etc on time
balls, or what ever Tovah or Ori have
his regular food, or whatever he can get --former street dogs aren't fussy
anywhere we take him, he is always excited to go & wants to be leader of the pack!
People were always amazed that he could still fetch a ball after he was blind. The ball had to have a squeek, but now that he is going deaf, it's a lot harder. He still has fun trying.
Indy was found by a woman who was associated with a local rescue group. He was dodging traffic on a busy intersection near my house. Her children named him Indy b/c they loved the Indiana Jones movies. I was thinking about adopting a puppy, & went to a adoption event by that group. He was about 2 years old, but sooo sweet & handsome & he seemed to be begging for me to take him home...how could I resist? He has been my faithful, loving companion thru good times & bad.
Indy was sighted when I adopted him. He developed glaucoma later in life & despite going to a doggie opthalmologist, & giving him many different kinds of eyedrops & oral meds his lenses eventually shattered from the pressure in his eyes. He was in agony & we had to make the EXTREMELY difficult decision to have him put down or have his eyes removed. The 1st few weeks were horrible, but he came thru it all like the champion he is, we all adjusted & I am SOOOOO glad he has been & will be with us for whatever time we are blessed with!
The Groups I'm In:
FANCYPANTS CAFE, Goldens and Friends, Gorgeous Goldens, ~~~*♥Dog Park USA♥*~~~
Indy's opthomologist called him his Brave Lad & I have to agree that the nickname suits him.
1/1/2012--Happy "Birthday" to my sweet boy! Actually, since Indy was a rescue, I have no idea when his birthday really is. I am guessing that it was around this time, since when he came to me in July of 1998, he was estimated to be 1 1/2 to 2 yrs old. In any case, he is a very old, very dear boy and I treasure every day with him!

My wonderful, precious, amazing boy left this earth this evening, when his vet found that he was suffering from lymphoma of the bowel. He was 17 years old, I had him since he was 2. I will always cherish his memory, but right now, my heart is breaking.
