Tavee Crosses Rainbow Bridge

Tavee

Just want to let everyone know Tavee has gone to visit her other doggie brothers and sister across the rainbow 🌈 bridge. She was a great addition for me and loved to go on walks at her leisure and will miss her dog park playmates Tiki, Ely and Luna….(to name a few). Tavee always love to chase a ball especially from a “chuckit” and would do so at least 4-5 times before she just sat down and said I’m done 🙂

Over the past 4 months Tavee started to lose her vision and was treated by her local vet Dr. A @ 610 Animal Hospital, Ophthalmologist Dr. Corcoran and Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Todd Deppe. Tick and Lyme’s Disease were eliminated, as well as any signs of cancer. It could have been Cushing’s Disease however she did not make it long enough for treatment. During this time her vision never improved but her spirits although diminished seemed good.

The past 2 days she would not eat but drank some water if was next to her. I knew it was not a good sign when I tried to give her medication in a slice of cheese and she didn’t even sniff it. I called the vet to see if it was time for one last attempt.

Once I had her outside she got up walked a few steps to the grass, went to the bathroom for the last time and sat down. I then had to move her on a blanket from the back yard to the driveway because she could not walk. As I was about to lift her in the truck she coughed and laid on her side. She coughed two more times and as I got her in the truck there was one last cough and she said goodbye.

She never really liked going to the vet and she made that clear it was her decision not to go. She was in pain and suffering so it is for the best.

Bye Tavee!! You will be missed!!

Also I may be interested in rescuing another Golden. I did not find any available on the website so can you keep me posted on the status regarding availability. Thanks for what you do! I am glad I was able to provide Tavee a happy loving home the last part of her life.

Thanks
Mike
