February 14th 1991
Being with people and playing with his toys.
He was terrified of the hot air balloons that used to go overhead in the evenings. He would cower in fear when he heard them.
Chewy bones and balls.
Whatever was given to him.
Down to the lake behind our house.
He loved to shake howdy.
Our son who was living in San Antonio bred his beautiful Golden Retriever, Sundance, to a fine Golden Retriever, Tanner (but called Burley), who lived in the same apartment complex with them. The result was quite a brood for Sundance, of which, Lance was one. My mother had passed away from cancer in February of 1990 and two weeks after she passed away, someone poisoned our precious Cockerpoo, Happy. We found him on our deck where he had come to die. And a week later, our cute mixed dog, Ratzenfratz, was also poisoned. By the time we notice he was ill and called the vet, it was too late and he died in our arms. Our daughter was just devastated over the loss of three very close loved ones. So, after our son bred Sundance, he told us he was giving us one of the puppies to help fill a very big void in our lives. He sent Lance to us via airplane. Lance was about 4 months old when he arrived. He was so scared when we picked him up at the airport. It did not take him long to get over that and become very excited to be with us. By this time he was getting on the large size... too big to be a lap dog. Unfortunately, Lance did not know he was too big so quite often he would jump in our laps and could not understand why he did not fit.
Lance was a wonderful dog for the 7 years he was with us. He did develop hip dysplasia and had to be on Cosequin, which seemed to help him, for that problem for several years toward the end. He somehow developed a virus that attacked his heart (the doc doc said it could have been something he was born with). At first, we thought he just might make it because his other organs were not involved. He was at the doc doc's for about a week when his other organs began to shut down from this virus. A very painful decision had to be made in November of 1998. We could see he was suffering, although he always tried to get up to visit with us and was so happy when we were there with him. We very sadly had to agree with the doc doc that it was in Lance's best interest to allow him the dignity of being free of his pain. Neither my husband, nor I were strong enough to actually be with him at the end. I will never, ever do that again. I will be with any of my babies until the very end if the choice has to be made again. I am still troubled by not being with Lance. His eyes pleading with me to take him home and wagging his sweet tail are the very last memories I have of him. I should have been with him.
Let me do it!

Wasn't it nice of Catster to given us free gifties of a Febreze collar? It helps us to touch base with our pals to let them know how much they mean to us and that we are thinking about them. The collars are such a a purrty blue, too.
I was going to thank each special pal who sent me the furiendship Febreze collars in my diary but so many precious pals have sent collars to me and to my furmily that my mom told me that no way could she name each special pal. Please understand that my meowmy IS the problem not me. I need her to type for me so I have to just grin and do what my mom says. My mom just keeps losing track of from whom I am receiving these pawsome collars. You know you just can't hire good help these days.
I would would really like to thank each of you fur the furiendship Febreze collars that you sent to me and want you to know how much it means to me to have such special and caring pals. You are all furry special and I am so greatful to have such pawsome pals in my life. Thank you to all who cared enough to send these furiendship collars to me. I love all of you.
