Marshall came into our program last August with a number of issues - he was BIG – only 110 lbs. down from 119, diagnosed with cancer, seizures, weak muscle mass in his back legs, laryngeal paralysis, and weepy eyes. However instead of being a permanent foster, he was immediately adopted by one of our volunteers. Unfortunately he died after getting bloat that could not be corrected.
He made everyone smile with all his antics. He always had his purple hippo (pacifier) with him! He spoke with that raspy, deep “woof” – one to go out, two to come in, and three to fill the water bowl. Usually the three came from the bathroom where it was clear that the lid must be down at all times or the big guy would partake enthusiastically! He became strong enough to swim and fetch balls, and he was a big hit at the Golden on the Green Golf Tournament.
Marshall was a gift! He brought smiles to all who met him! He was Golden in every way! He deserved so much more time than he had and so much more love! He was such a sweet, simple guy! He asked for nothing and gave with his whole heart.
