Holly – March, 2011
Holly Noel Johnson (November 3, 1997 – March 14, 2011) of Norfolk, VA was helped across the rainbow bridge today.
She was the much loved golden of Joe, Pat and April Johnson. She was met on the other side of the bridge by her golden brothers Cappuccino and Steve and her feline sisters Abby and Isabel.
Collecting Frisbees was Holly job in life. She started retrieving when she was only a few weeks old. She loved to retrieve Frisbees, but only the 99 cent ones from PETCO. She especially liked to retrieve them from the water and loved to go to Aunt Stephanie’s house on the water. In her senior years when the vet said “No more Frisbees.” she would collect nine Frisbees when tossed around the yard meticulously turning them all in the same direction so they would stack neatly.
Holly struggled with arthritis since she was two years old. She was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy over two years ago which is usually fatal, but she was one of a small percentage of dogs who responded to amino acid supplements.
Holly was a daddy’s girl and would have loved to have been the only dog, but alas, with her parents fostering needy goldens, that was never the case.
Holly is survived by her human parents, her golden siblings – Anna, Madeline and Harry, and her feline siblings Kiwi, Al and Sam.
Donations to Golden Rescue of Southern Maryland, Box 6 Great Mills, MD 20634 in her memory will warm her family’s heart.
