Wilson June 29, 2003- May 28, 2017. Wilson, a.k.a. Wishing Star's Golden Boy, was our first Golden, at our son Aaron's continued request. I had Afghan Hounds for 30 years, and a Maltese as well, and Aaron spent several years convincing us that what we REALLY needed a Golden Retriever. We finally gave in September 2003, and brought Wilson home. It wasn't long before we all thought he was the greatest, and we have been Golden Retriever fans ever since!

Wilson passed away after a long battle with thyroid cancer (22 months, after given only 2-6 months to live), but he remained cheerful, ornery and had a zest for life until the last week of his life.
