lifetime like a gentle summer rain.

 They touch our hearts and then
return to heaven once again.

Can Biscuit sing??

Biscuit took the final trip to the Rainbow Bridge, today, February 23, 2000.  I just hope there's a place there like Jupiter Beach where he can swim "'til the cows come home".   I was priviliged to have had the honor of being his human for almost three and one half years, every minute of which I will cherish forever. Goodbye and God-speed, Biscuit.  You were the BEST. 

FAREWELL, MASTER, YET NOT FAREWELL,
WHERE I GO, YE TOO SHALL DWELL
I AM GONE BEFORE YOUR FACE.
A MOMENT'S TIME, A LITTLE SPACE

WHEN YE COME WHERE I HAVE STEPPED
WE WILL WONDER WHY WE WEPT

This site will remain as a memorial to my Biscuit, the Best of the Best.

All About Biscuit

.


Biscuit wasn't always as happy and carefree as he appears above.  Biscuit was "rescued" from the Mohawk-Hudson Humane Shelter near Albany, NY in October of 1996 by a terrific organization called "GRROWLS" (a nifty acronym for Golden Retriever Rescue Operated With Love - Statewide).  Biscuit was 10 years old, in very poor health and had been turned in to the shelter; a death sentence under most any other conditions. 
A GRROWLS  volunteer took one look at his "happy face"  and, in spite of his horrible physical condition, decided immediately that this was one Golden worthy of a reprieve.

Biscuit spent almost two weeks at the vet, attending his many problems - eye infections, ear infections, severe flea infestation and resulting skin dermatitis, rotted teeth, ring worms, malnutrition and a previously broken hip and leg as a result of being hit by a car 
(no, his former name was NOT "Lucky"--- )

Here's Biscuit AFTER all the work done by the vet,

Well, after six months or so of healing (including a near fatal antibiotic allergic reaction), Biscuit decided that, at 70 people years old, he'd had just about enough of snow and ice and it was high time to head South and spend some quality time lying around on a beach - heck, if humans do it, it must be good for a dog, too.  He and his human thought long and hard about such a change (about 2 minutes) and it was good-bye Albany, helloooo Tequesta, Florida.

Now the days are filled with challenges - like 
chasing stray cats out of the yard, fetching the 
Daily Growl, and anticipating the next trip to 
the beach (tough life, huh?)
. 
Biscuit LIVES for the beach.  That messed up hip and leg still give him a lot of problems, but swimming - now that's another story.  In the water, there is no weight on the leg and swimming is a breeze.  Biscuit lives up to the breed reputation and "retrieves" 'till the cows come home.       ("click" >>>)
