My sweet Kaiser. He
truly had a heart of Gold. He was our honorary Akita. I had
always loved Goldens. And my previous Golden had passed away a
few years before Kaiser came into my life. My sister was in town
and missed her bird so she wanted to go see some in a petshop.
Well the petshop we went to had no birds, but they did have
puppies. In a cage was an adorable Golden pup, he was already
much older than all the other pups there, he was very large
compared to his cage and the tag said price reduced. It was
clear people were passing this pup by. When he looked at me he
broke my heart and I had to take him out of the cage. He was so
excited that he peed on me! lol The woman working there was so
rude and disgusted by this pup. My mom was with us and asked if
his price was going to be reduced again. She said she didnt
think so since they just reduced his price, but she asked
anyway. To our surprise they offered to take off another 100.00.
We had no plans to buy a dog and especially not from a petshop
which we are against. But 200.00 later we took this sweet puppy
home. Even though we knew he was probably from a puppymill as
most petshops pups are, when we got him home it was
heartbreaking to see. This poor pup did not know how to drink
from a bowl, only a water bottle and he was freaked out walking
on grass probably being in a cage his entire short life. But
Kaiser was the best dog ever. From day one he bonded with me as
his person. He never needed a leash and would never wander.
He was sweet as can be and since he was here before all the
Akitas he was my puppy raiser. We actually nicknamed him Momma
Kaiser. I miss this boy so much. I will definitely get another
Golden one of these days, Life without one is just not the same.
