This past week we lost our Cindy to cancer; she quietly reached the Rainbow Bridge and got rid of her pain. Cindy was 10½ and was “our best girl” for all of the years she was with us. As with all Golden Retrievers, she enjoyed life and loved to be with her family, no matter what was going on. She seemed to feel the more family close to her the better life was.
Cindy loved to lie beside you quietly hoping to get a pet; if one didn’t come soon enough for her, she would “encourage” you by rubbing against your hand as a reminder that she was still there and still interested. Outdoors she could be very comfortable lying in the sun, going swimming, or diving into a snow bank. A fine game was to chase a thrown ball but not bring it back until she felt the time was appropriate.
For Cindy there was nothing better than a quiet walk early in the morning to get her day off to a great start. A ride in the truck was perfect at any time; it didn’t make any difference where. The best finish for the day was her “Greenie” treats an hour or so before bedtime.
We miss our Cindy terribly and hope another Cindy will bring a new family as much love, joy, and affection as our Cindy brought us.
