On March 17, 2016, we were the lucky couple to have the privilege of adopting 2 golden retrievers from you.  Clyde had just turned 6 years old and Bonnie was soon to turn 4 years old. They came to us as a pair that you did not want to separate. These 2 dogs brought so much happiness to our lives and were greeted by everyone with open arms that they met.

It is with a very heavy and broken heart that we had to say goodbye to Clyde on Dec 31, 2019.  Clyde was my big boy, at 93 pounds, and followed me everywhere. This all happened so suddenly, and then we had to help our big boy cross the rainbow bridge. Bonnie was with us all this time and I’m not sure if she knew what was happening, but now that we are home she misses Clyde terribly. They were never apart and this is really hard for her.  We have given her all of our love and attention to try to help her cope with this but I think it’s just going to take time, like it will for all of us.

I want to thank you, and let you know that we have the most wonderful gentle Golden’s that we would have never had had it not been for your wonderful rescue group. Thank you for letting us adopt these two and we promise to take care of Bonnie and give her our endless love that she deserves.
