Pluto - I Miss My Friend

by Michelle De Chene
(Orlando, FL)

Pluto was an 11 year old Golden Retriever. We got him for my daughter.

He got his name because my daughter wanted to name him Poodle, but that just didn't seem right, so she agreed to Pluto, because it sounded similar.

He was a great family pet. He used to love to swim and play ball. One time he climbed the ladder to the above ground pool just so he could go swimming. We would have never known if he hadn't left behind a layer of hair. We're still not sure how he got out.

He will be remembered for being a great friend to the whole family. We LOVE him and will MISS him greatly. He is survived by 1 adult, a girl (12), a boy (4), and his best dog friend, Ziggy.
