Augie Turns 20! World's Oldest Golden Retriever!!
Friday, June 26, 2020
A kind Sparkie friend alerted me to this wonderful news!!
Yes, that's Augie (more formally, "August") in the middle, surrounded by her siblings!
So glad she had a party and cake to celebrate her big day.
How I wish dear Charlie could have stayed with us longer than his 14.5 years.
How I hope beloved Henry is immortal!!
The only tough thing about loving a dog is that they don't live nearly long enough.
But: our doggies do live on in our hearts.
And all my previous dogs are up there advocating for me in Heaven, I'm sure of it -- where I just MIGHT get admittance if the authorities believe I'm as utterly perfect as my dogs thought I was.
Or in the alternative, that it simply can't be Heaven for those deserving doggies if I'm not there to join them: in due course.
And yes: that's the more persuasive argument!!
