Today November 21, 2008 at 10:34 Tigger said GoodBye to us. He has gone on as many say over the Rainbow. Already my heart hurts with his being gone but he was ready to go, I will so miss him. I love you old man, Run and have fun and know you are loved always... Tigger is a true Older Gentleman; he is around 13 years old as best as we can tell. He joined our family all on his own; in 1999. My Bandit who was a Boston terrier of 15 years had just passed away, the day before Tigger showed up in the yard. He is a Golden Retriever, at the time he was not to healthy. I have never been one to let anything or anyone go hungry, so I feed him, ran an ad in the local paper, made flyer and put him on the radio, as a lost dog. No one ever answered, after month or so the boys started letting him inside and he was gaining weight, but had a bad cough. My Daughter was 18 months old at the time, when one day I heard Tigger let out a loud yelp. I found Tigger with my daughter, she had found, then clipped a heavy barrette to his ear, which she had actually closed and snapped it. She was making him pretty, I told her that it was a No No; Tigger was pretty just as he was. As I removed the barrette and cleaned his ear, thank goodness it did not damage his ear to bad. I looked at him, and thought if he could set there, his head and jaws where the same level as my babys head, he let her hurt him, but he did nothing to her, he did not bite her he just yelped. Well, needless to said, Tigger had a new home from that day on. It was not easy, he had severe Heart worms, a heart murmur, our Vet estimated his age at around 4. It took two rounds of the heart worm treatment to get him clear, he still coughs sometimes but that is just our Tigger. He got his name because as bad, unhealthy, as he was he bounced every where when he was younger. Loves to chase and eat, yes eat Tennis balls. In Tigger opinion is that socks make the best chew toys for tough a war. Now in his senior years, he would prefer a nap, some treats and lots of love.
