Some stay the same

 Raykist Star Crowned Donovan JH, WC

March 1, 1992 - March 25, 2003

Donovan had a hemangiosarcoma tumor removed from his spleen soon after my Mom left for a nursing home. He had a wonderful 4 months of celebrating life by playing with puppies and running - something he loved to do. According to my Mom's caretakers, her "boys" were with her during her last year. I'm sure Donovan was among them.

Star Crowned Claudia CGC
(NAHRA Beginner's Certificate)

Adopted 13 August 1990 (at ~5 years of age) from GRCGLA Rescue.

Died 14 September 2000 at ~15 years of age.


Echowoode Okeechobee Etude

May 31, 1978 - October 22, 1991

We always thought Lucas wasn't too bright. However, when he was finally the last one left of the old boys, he came into his own and we discovered that he really wasn't so dumb! After all, he did manage to live a life of leisure and avoided having to do any of that horrible obedience training like the other boys!

Kakulakoa's Leonardo De Oahu CDX

November 5, 1974 - May 24, 1988

Leonardo far out-lived his brother and spent the latter years of his life RVing around North America.

Kakulakoa's Mr. Christian CDX

November 5, 1974 - ~1979

Chris died of Hemangiosarcoma at about 4 years of age.

Peradenia Prince Charming CD
(Am. ptd.)
English Import

August 10, 1971- ~1981

Morgan suffered from severe hip dysplasia and a severe thyroid problem. He loved to swim and "fish" on our beach. He would spend hours everyday swimming and that probably extended his life by building muscle and taking a lot of pressure off his hips.

Moki The Merry Menehune CDX
(Am. ptd.)

June 29, 1971 - September 26, 1974

"Moki the Merry Menehune was our first Golden. He was a bundle of fur when he came into our lives at 5 1/2 weeks of age. He grew into a beautiful fellow and was a gentleman to everyone he met. He had come into his own in obedience. In getting his CDX he had taken two first places in his class and one second. He was ready to go into utility when he was suddenly taken ill. Moki will long be remembered by his family and friends for his happy disposition and willing nature, his devotion and trust. '...that you would have to go some day we knew. But oh, not yet, not yet.' "

Moki died at just over 3 years of age from a toxic reaction to excessive amounts of a worming medicine administered to him by a veterinarian.
