Cassie is a 10 year old Golden Retriever. We purchased Cassie from a local pet store. She was the last pup, and was so sweet we just had to bring her home. Cassie's favorite things include her adopted sister Mollie, swimming in the lake, and rolling in the dirt; especially after a bath. She also loves her Grandpa who will come over and let her out on days I am out and about. He has learned to hide his gloves as they will disappear as soon as they are put down.
My favorite story about Cassie is how she loves to over take any floatation device, whether it is being used by a human or not. She now has her very own. When Cassie was a pup was diagnosed with a heart murmur which was detected after we got her. She has had surgery to remove a bottle cap that she swallowed and was treated for chronic pain in her back leg joint. This resulted in the removal of this leg; pathology later determined there was cancer. She was recently diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia and is on medication to control it. She loves coming to AWC and knows the routine; she will not pass the front desk without getting weighed. She is our Miracle Dog and has been through a lot.
