A GOLDEN GOODBYE


 


ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2011, RAIDER WAS OUT
DOING WHAT HE LOVED MOST WALKING WITH HIS PEEPS,  WITH THE WIND BLOWING HIS BEAUTIFUL GOLDEN FURS..WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN HE COLLAPSED

HIS MOM AND DAD TRIED TO GET HIM UP.  UNFORTUNATELY, IN JUST SECONDS THIS BEAUTIFUL PRECIOUS GOLDEN BOY WAS GONE...AT 9 1/2 YEARS OF AGE.  THEY THINK HE MIGHT HAVE HAD A STROKE OR HEART ATTACK. 

LAST MONDAY WHEN  I POSTED ABOUT MY HANDSOME GOLDEN BEAU SENDING ME SOME SMELL MAIL

I NEVER EVER THOUGHT I'D BE POSTING ABOUT HIS UNTIMELY PASSING THIS MONDAY.

IRONICALLY, ON SATURDAY, RAIDER AND HIS PEEPS ARRIVED BACK IN THEIR HOME STATE OF CALIFORNIA.  RAIDER WAS A CALIFORNIA BOY THROUGH AND THROUGH....HE IS  HOME

THE BELOW PICTURE SAYS IT ALL...RUN FREE SWEET, PRECIOUS RAIDER

MOM AND DAD MET RAIDER IN MAY OF 2010...THEY TOLD ME HE WAS THE SWEETEST PUPPY AND IN TRUE GOLDEN NATURE HE WAS THRILLED TO MEET THEM.
HIS ENTIRE BODY WAGGED WITH HIS TAIL!!
RAIDER WILL BE MISSED BY HIS MOM AND DAD AND ALL HIS FRIENDS ALL OVER NORTH AMERICA. 
MUTUAL LOVE AND ADMIRATION WAS SEEN IN ALL THREE SETS OF EYES.
