As you might remember, we went through a scare with our Golden Retriever, Maggie, a few years ago when she developed thyroid cancer. The vet was able to remove her thyroid, and the tumor appeared not to have spread. However, now it is clear it did metastasize to her brain.
She falls down quite a bit, and has begun having seizures, but she still has a lot of good days. It’s clear we’ll have to make a decision sometime soon, but for now, we’re just appreciating the time we have with her.
Over the weekend, it was so beautiful out, we decided to take a drive, and we took Maggie back to see the breeder where she came from (Good as Gold Golden Retrievers in Wilmot, Ohio). Maggie was the first dog they had ever bought, and we got her from them after they had bred her twice and found she couldn’t bring down enough milk for her pups.
Maggie appeared to enjoy the trip, and I think they were really glad to see her. It was a nice drive for all of us, but I was a little worried about how the stress would affect Maggie. I’m glad to report she looks to be doing just fine! Yet another good day to appreciate having her in our family.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
