Past Beloved Dogs

In Heaven

FINN, Highview Finn MacCool, JH WC TD OA OAJ TDI, was one of the dogs honored for his work with familes who lost loved ones when the WTC was struck by terrorists. Nora and Finn were so effective in their work they were chosen by the NYC community police to accompany the families on the ferries daily to visit the site of the tragedy  Finn was a founding therapy dog at Rockland Psychiatric Childrens Center and also won a national award for tracking a lost Golden in Great Barrington in 2008. (please see Finn’s page)

CONORGoldtrak Steelecreek Classic WC OA AXJ NF, was a wonderful and talented dog sadly lost to cancer in 2009.

BESS TDI, just Bess, a mixed breed girl, adopted after a difficult start in life (she lost an eye and a tail and was near death when she was discovered as a stray), came back all the way and visited children for years at Rockland Childrens’ Psychiatric Center.  The hospitalized children, often themselves the victims of trauma and abuse, identified with Bess’s story and saw how she had a tough start too but was very happy and safe now. Bess was sadly lost to bloat (stomach torsion) on January 1st 2012.

CARA, Comstock Honora’s Anam Cara RE JH AX AXJ XF WC CCA TDI, was a beautiful and talented working girl and the foundation for Honora Goldens. Cara’s name means “dear heart” and she certainly was.  A funny, smart, athletic girl who did it all! I lost her at almost 14

PINK, Honora’s Fabulous Miss Pink, was very much her mother’s daughter-beautiful, spirited, and very talented. She placed in puppy stakes and won BISS at Yankee Golden Retriever Club’s Spring match. Got her WC with ease and was competing in agility. She had a bright future ahead of her. I lost her in August of 2019 after a year long battle with Lymphoma.
