A week ago, my Goldie acted like she didn't feel well and went off her feed. She was 10 years old on Feb. 7 and came into season Feb. 13. I took her into the vet to have her checked. She was diagnosed with a pyometra. So, she had surgery last Tuesday. But, the infection caused by the pyometra was bad. At one point her white cell blood count shot up to 88,000. I went to see her every day and, although she seemed a little better each day, progress was slow until about Friday, when I could tell she was feeling a lot better. I almost lost her but she's doing very well now. I got to bring her home yesterday afternoon. Other than the sutures, she's her old self.
Goldie is a daughter of FC AFC LaCrosse Max Q Jake JH FDHF OS. I have Labs but decided to get a Golden puppy 10 years ago. When I did, I got some criticism from some of my Lab friends. So, I decided to name her Meglyn Firemark's I am NOT a Lab. She's been a pleasure. Goldie is Senior titled with one Master pass. A few years ago she acted like she didn't want to run hunt tests anymore. The birds would go down, I'd send her, she'd run about thirty yards, then turn around and come back to me. Made no sense. I asked our Jen Ortman, our animal communicator (yes, we have an animal communicator), to come to the house to "talk" to her. She said Goldie told her that she couldn't focus and was tired all the time. Jen said I should have her thyroid checked since those are symptoms. It was low. She's been on thyroid treatment ever since. She's retired now, but loves to hunt pheasants and is really good at it. I called Jen when Goldie's condition got bad last week and asked her to help. She can actually do remote contacts. Right after she did, Goldie started getting better. I'm certainly not taking anything away from my vet, Mark Harris, DVM. He did an outstanding job and without his excellent care, Goldie wouldn't have survived. This post is about Goldie and how happy I am to have her home, not about Jen, but I know there are skeptics. I was a skeptic too until about 6 years ago, but there are many things Jen has done that have no explanation other than she's actually communicating with animals (she can also communicate with those who have passed). Many of the things she says simply can't be made up. There are far too many specifics. I can't explain it but I won't post examples here unless someone asks.
BOTTOM LINE - I'm so glad to have my Goldie home.
