We rescued our sweet golden Mazy in January of 2012. She had a rough life before she came to us. She had been used as a bait dog in a pit-bull fighting ring. She went from there to a homeless man who sat in front of Kroger’s with her panhandling. When GRRAND got involved, she was sent to the prison rehabilitation in La Grange. She came to us after 11 months in training. Because of her earlier experience in the dog fighting ring she was dog aggressive. That meant she had to be sheltered from any contact with other dogs. We were blessed with having her for almost 7 years. Sadly, she succumbed to lymphoma on September 1. After searching for another golden we were placed with Sonny. He is turning out to be a sweet boy that we can hopefully cherish for a long time to come.
I lost Missy on September 15th. The large, aggressive tumor in her stomach appeared very suddenly. It was the largest of several others that came out of nowhere to catch us all by surprise.
I first met Missy in November of 2011 when I was picking up my dog from daycare at East Point. She was in the parking lot with the transport team bringing her from the Harrison County shelter. They had not even made it in the door yet for her initial intake examination, and I knew I had to have her.
Missy was the best dog one could ever hope to stumble upon. She was a cool weather dog who loved to roll in leaves and dig her nose in the snow. She was a loving and gentle soul and she is deeply missed.
With tears in my eyes as I write,
It’s with great sadness that we inform you that sweet Sully passed over the Rainbow Bridge. Sully was adopted by a wonderful family two months ago. They were helping him during his treatment for heartworm disease when he suddenly took a turn for the worse. A diagnosis revealed pancreatitis and hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. In addition, he had a large prostatic mass. During surgery the doctors found his condition much worse than expected and poor Sully succumbed to his illness.
Wednesday, October 24, 2018 we said good bye to our friend Brie. She was a 14+ year old golden retriever mix and the love of our life. She was the last of our fabulous five rescue golden’s. She had oral cancer. She was one of the four that came from GRRAND in Louisville, KY. SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL girl and loved everyone. We will miss her immensely!
RIP ……. “BRIE-BRIE”
