   Leave a bone for Goldie

Goldie Girl

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-dog rescue

She loved my company more than anything else. Nothing else really mattered to her.

Not being allowed to come with me wherever I went. Whenever she thought I might be upset with her.

Favorite Toy:
I never saw her play with a toy.

Favorite Food:
Anything I was eating.

Favorite Walk:
Around town--especially if she could escape and explore on her own. All the animal control folk knew her, but they could never catch her!

Arrival Story:
Goldie was an adult stray in the neighborhood, eating out of garbage cans and so frightened of people that she wouldn't come near anyone. I thought she must be in need of regular meals and a good home, so I set about trying to entice her to eat at our house. Eventually I managed to "tame" her, and she became my constant and most devoted companion for 12 years.

Goldie was my best friend for 12 years. She saw me through the worst of times (bad divorce) AND the best of times (marriage to a wonderful person), and could always be counted on to love me more than life itself. I felt the same way about her. Then one day we had to go on a business trip to CA, and since we were flying, Goldie couldn't come. After endless interviews, reference checks, background/business/licensing checks, and doing all the other "right" things a responsible pet companion does to find someone trustworthy, we settled on a professional pet sitter to watch over my girl during the 5 days we would be gone. When we got home, Goldie wasn't there! The pet sitter couldn't even tell me what day she disappeared. The pet sitter never contacted us, never looked for her, and suddenly seemed to disappear off the face of the planet before we could sue her *ss into oblivion. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I don't recommend pet sitters. We never found Goldie, despite intense and endless searches through all the various means, and 5 1/2 years later, I still look for her, still hope, still wonder.... and still hurt. I miss you, my Goldie Girl. You were my love, and you always will be.

Forums Motto:
Country roads, take me home....
