I’m writing to let you know that our wonderful dog Charlie died last week after a short but powerful fight against cancer.

Charlie came to us in July 2016 along with his buddy Ace, also a Golden who died of cancer in November 2019. Charlie and Ace were a bonded-pair who were surrendered to Golden Bond from an individual in Eugene. We didn’t know much about these two boys other than that they lived with two bull mastiffs. Ace was Charlie’s protector and the two of them depended on each other as if they were joined at the hip.

This was our first time having two dogs at once and we loved it. They would lie down on the same couch in their “butt-to-butt” positioning to sleep the day away. They also liked to wrestling and always at 8 o’clock in the morning when they thought no one was watching. We loved everything about these two “snuggle bunnies” and have deep holes in our hearts now that they are gone.

We know that Charlie left us to go find his buddy, Ace, and that Ace, was waiting for him to romp off into the sunset. These two were our 3rd and 4th Golden Retrievers from Golden Bond and we know it won’t be long until we bring Golden #6 into our lives.

Thank you for all that you do to care for these precious pups,

Diane & Scott Stadler
