Golden Retriever Dylan, Denvers Flying Dog Remembered
by Rochelle Lesser
Rob Marshall is Denver, Colorados FOX 31 helicopter pilot/reporter, sporting much experience and an unblemished record for safety. Amazingly, he has taken his Golden Dylan, in the air, every morning for the last 10 years, speaking about their spending time together 24-7.
Dylans love of snow and mountains belies the fact that he was born in the marshlands of Charleston, SC. Dylan got his first taste of flying in LA and took to it right away. He has also starred in several commercials for Raleys and his friendly personality, intelligence, good looks and manners won him many admirers. Dylans other interests include swimming, boating, hiking, chasing squirrels and collecting plastic water bottles for recycling.
Sadly, the Fox station announced today that Denvers only Flying Dog has left for The Bridge. Recently, Rob had to make the difficult decision to put his friend to sleep. Dylan had been fighting health problems during the past year, that began with a diagnosis of bone cancer and subsequent amputation. And, while he seemed to be progressing in his rehabilitation, he developed problems in his spine that caused him difficulty in lifting his back end.
