Arrival Story:
My grandson was working on his car one day and found her sitting in the back seat smiling and panting - she was just skin and bones. He begged me to take her in which I did and the vet said she would probably recover well as she was young. No one responded to advertisements so she has been mine ever since.

Goldie always overeats probably as a result of her starvation when she was lost so weight is always an issue. We felt she had been dumped by the family of an elderly person who died as she is always very affectionate and when she came had no concept of dog food - only a person's plate. She was excellent in obedience classes and always totally remembered all her commands. She had a stroke last year and has been blind and deaf since but has adapted very well and finds her way around wonderfully. Goldie was helped to cross over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. She had stopped drinking water and I did not want her to suffer as she died. She went very quietly and peacefully and as always the vet and assistant were very affectionate to her so she was calm/

Goldie's World

Chocolat "finds" Goldie

Just have to let Goldie know this. My little pet cemetery is outside my yard several yards from my house. I had put a nice bench there so I could sit and commune with my babies once in awhile. One day Chocolat, her cat friend, followed me down there. She discovered Goldie's collar hanging on her headstone and evidently it still smelled of Goldie as Chocolat had a fit rubbing and purring on the collar. She was so glad to have found her friend!


Goldie's last day

Goldie did not drink any water all day Thursday (it is 110 degrees) and she would not drink still on Friday morning so we decided it was time to go to the Vet for the big sleep. I did not want her to convulse from dehydration and she had not been eating well for several days either so it was time to go. I regret I forgot to have her say goodbye to Chocolat who had been such a good and loving companion for her in her blind and deaf state. Goldie is now buried beside Blickie in a beautiful spot under a mesquite tree with a view of the mountains. The birds sing there and it is very pleasant. I think I will add a bench to the spot to spend quiet time with them as it is so nice there. It is very lonely in the house without her and it is time to look for a new companion. Sasha, one of my guard dogs spends some time in the house with me now but her heart is in the outdoors.


Chocolat is patient with Goldie

Have posted a new photo of Goldie taking a nap while Chocolat is a patient pillow. Chocolat is very kind and loving with Goldie. All the dogs are good to her - it seems as if all her family senses her handicap and her good nature. She bumps into everyone at least once in awhile but no one snaps at her and they don't even snap when she gets into their dishes for a snack. Chocolat loves her and plays with her nearly every day and often lets Goldie nap against her.
