Golly the Gordon Setter
Our gorgeous Gordon Setter, Golly, died yesterday. Jeff & I are devastated - Golly was a very special dog. He came to us aged 2 - a dog that was terrified of all human beings. With coaxing and love, Golly slowly learned to trust humans, just Jeff & myself at first, but eventually some of our friends too. When Poppy joined us, he followed her lead and learned that new people were not all a threat. When Golly did trust you, he did whole heartedly, and we were rewarded with the most loving and affectionate dog I have ever known. I cannot begin to describe the hole he has left in our hearts.
