On July 7, 1990, Mommy's family (her parents and brother Kevin) went to get a dog from the shelter. They came home with two 8 week old Golden Retriever puppies who had been left in the "drop box" overnight. Why two? So mommy and her bro wouldn't fight of course.
No words can describe how much these dogs were loved. They were so much a part of the family and couldn't be apart for more than 5 minutes. They always had to go to the VET together, especially Comet, because he wouldn't be left behind.
This picture was taken in Oct. 2002.
They lost their Sweet Sebastian (white bandanna) to a fast growing tumor in Feb. of 2003 at almost 13. The family didn't believe Comet would make it without his brother, but with a lot of love, and a visit from an animal communications person, Comet lived 2 1/2 more years. He passed away at over 15 years old on Oct. 10, 2005 with the help of a nice VET Tech. She came to Comet at home so he could be on his favorite couch surrounded by his family. He will always be missed.
Thanks for so many good years my sweet Comet Head!
