TD (the dog) strayed into the office complex where I worked
nearly nine years ago. He was a Golden Retriever/Spaniel(?) mix.
So sweet and such a joy. Everyone loved him.
My husband had always said Goldens were his favorite dog so after
about a week of seeing this beautiful animal just hanging around,
and advertising in the local newspaper for his owner to reclaim him
I brought him home.
My husband passed away 11/15 / 97 so I just had TD and he was
such a comfort to me. When we first took him to the Vet the
day after I brought him home the Vet said he thought he was
about 4 years old. I knew the time would come when I would
have to put him to sleep or that he would just pass away
and I dreaded that day so much!
It happened 4 / 30 / 99 and I was with him holding him,
loving him crying. I had purchased a motor home so he and
I could go travelling and he was able to enjoy several outings….
sitting up in the passenger’s seat watching everything go by.
I had him cremated and will take him and put him with “Dad”
and someday the three of us will be together again.
