Winston, beloved Golden of GBGRR volunteers Jackie and Gene O., went to the bridge today. He was 12 years old. Rescued in 2002, Winston was found wandering on the shore of Lake Conroe, his head was swollen and the vet believed he had been hit by a car. His eyes and ears were infected. He had horrible entropia and had to have surgery on his eyes for that. Once he was healthy, GBGRR had him neutered and started him on his heartworm treatment. We was adopted by Jackie and Gene. His favorite thing was sleeping, followed by barking at the neighbor dogs and people passing by. He was happiest at 5PM because that was dinner time! At 9:30 pm each night, Jackie’s husband, Gene would be relaxed in the recliner. Winston would come up to get his back rubbed by moving up and down against Gene's feet.
Winston will be very missed by his family, his foster mom, Cil and the entire GBGRR family.
