A Tribute

Well we haven't posted in while because it was a bad week for us and we are heart broken. Our dearest cousin Mona passed over the rainbow bridge this week and we miss her very, very much. She was a lovely golden retreiver who was as sweet as could be, always smiling, always easy-going, always happy. She was devoted to her PLs (pack leaders) and wanted only to be where they were, whether it was out fishing in the middle of the ocean on Tommy's boat to keep him company, or at Susan's side while she read, taking a walk down to the harbor (a favorite outing!) or "stealing" toast from Susan's Dad, Joe (actually he always gave it to her, but she thought she was "getting away with something!"). This is a picture of PL2 with us and Tommy with Mona during a happy walk together at one of Mona's favorite places, the harbor.




So raise a toast to our dearest cousin Mona tonight my pals.....

Awwwwwh, Mona was a beauty. We're so sorry for your loss & Mona's family. That is a very lovely picture of all of you together. Something to treasure.
Papa's sister in Colorado just rescued a cute golden girl from the Rocky Mountain Golden Rescue. Someday they can play together at the giant rainbow!

Goldens are wonderful dogs. To paraphrase Will Rogers, I never met one I didn't like. Sorry for your loss of a great friend and companion.

Oh, we're so sorry to read this. It's hard to lose a member of the family. It leaves an empty place in our hearts.
