Golden retrievers are a happy breed of dog. They live in the present, busy with the here and now. They don’t hold grudges, are always delighted to see their people, and will eat almost anything that is not hot, heavy, or nailed down.
What they can’t do is have a decent life if their hindquarters are paralyzed.
We spent time with her this morning. I can’t say enough good things about the Gordon House Vet people. Elena wasn’t in pain, but it was obvious that she was not a happy camper only being able to move the upper half of her body. She got cuddles, treats
and was put to sleep right before noon.
She will be missed.
