Fluffy Crossed Rainbow Bridge

Fluffy (3)

Dona and I have some bad news. We had to have Fluffy put down this morning.

She wasn’t acting 100% so I took her to Dona’s vet here in Pennsylvania. A series of X-Rays showed massive cancer around her heart, spleen etc. with her heart nearly twice normal size. There was no indication of any problem at all until about 2 days ago when she had difficulty breathing and was slower on her twice daily walk with me.

Chemo was mentioned but Dona, the vet and I didn’t want to put her through all that without any likelihood of success.

We had her for three wonderful years and she really became a great companion. Her last three months were with us in Maine where she absolutely loved the cool weather.

I know it is way to early to even think of another dog but when the time is right, she will be found at the Southern Maryland Golden Retriever Rescue. Please let all Fluffy’s friends know of her passing. I’m not quite up to that just yet.

Thank you so very much for the love and care you and your family showed her, and us. Please keep in touch. We love Riley and Moose!

Hugs, and Love,

Rick and Dona

NOTE: Fluffy was a VERY timid dog. Rick insisted she was the dog for him even though Fluffy was afraid of men. He visited her foster family (Glenda and Tom) several times before adopting her and fortified his house and yard as Fluffy could jump a fence. He recently reported that Fluffy was now walking off leash with him on their property. As Glenda says, “What a difference love can make.” .

Thank you both for giving her, undoubtedly, the best years of her life. Godspeed Fluffy
