Twilight: ensuring a dog’s last memory is of being loved


Twilight News


This month we welcome two new Twilight Puddings and celebrate the life of a friend Over the Rainbow Bridge


Leeanne writes: You never know what a day brings, but great sadness has landed on the Golden Retriever rescue world in France. I have never met Emma on the French Golden Retriever rescue group, but we emailed in our very early days and we have helped her with several rescues over our ten years. She has been an inspiration and incredible rescue worker. Only last week we were in contact to possibly help a friend with a GR rescue puppy.

We were contacted by her family for help, following a sudden and unforeseen serious illness. However full we are, however difficult it is for us physically just now, how can we not help at such a time? Two oldies, both GRs: Bounty and Dana. You are both most welcome. Read more about these two Twilight newbies on the Puddings’ own page.

It is with great sadness we need to share with you the passing of little Utah. Our black and white friend had some settled and happy time with us. But she was a disgruntled little soul and very up and down with mood. We loved it when she and Gabana danced, you could see her relaxed and at one then. She had struggled with an enlarged spleen for some time, and the pain at the end had the better of her. She slipped away peacefully in her daddy's arms. Thankyou BLC for entrusting her to us. Sweet dreams little one, run free now xxx
