from Dixie's Family:
Dixie was turned into Retrievers
and Friends when she was 9 years old. She was
supposed to be a foster dog, but we quickly fell in love
Dixie was the sweetest golden
retriever. She was always happy and loved everyone.
Dixie had numerous health issues
from the beginning. She had seizures but we were
able to reduce the frequency from monthly to every 3 -5
months. We also soon found out that she had
Laryngeal Paralysis. She also had rear leg
weakness that progressed significantly as she aged.
Regardless of all of her health issues, she was so happy.
She didn't know there was anything wrong and loved life to the fullest.
We miss our Dixie-Bear. Our
house is not the same without her. She
was 14 years, 5 months old when she passed. We
felt honored to have had her in our lives for 5 years.
