Dewey Butman
3/13/2006 - 12/20/2019Many people have dogs, but few have been able to keep a Golden as long as we did with him diagnosed with Cancer 4 yrs ago and given 5 weeks to live. We started a regiment of pure food and holistic medicine that put him in remission and gave us 4 more great years. We think he spoke and understood every word we said. He helped raise and play with most of our 12 grandchildren, watched them grow up, leave home only to come home from college, military leave and play yet again with him. He was never further than our shadow for the past 13 years. He loved swimming, camping, chasing coyotes, and most of all eating and letting any person who came within 2 feet of us ,pet him. AS a 65 lb Golden Retriever, he was sure he was a lap dog. We will always love and miss you and will see you on the other side someday.Frank and Ronda ButmanNewcastle, CaliforniaDecember 16, 2019

Dewey was such a sweet, beautiful dog, and it was so clear to me how well loved he was from the moment I met him. He had a wonderful life, filled with love, and a wonderful family who gave that to him. What a blessing he was to everyone who met him, and how lucky were the hearts that he touched. Thank you for your loving care of him for so many wonderful years - you are true animal lovers.Caroline Kiert - December 16, 2019
