It was not the story I wanted to be greeted with at the beginning of a new year, but it does look like there will be a happy Golden ending for Angel . . . despite defending her human *brother* from an attacking cougar.
Go read the incredible story here, Angel representing the 86th Golden Retriever hero story showcased at our foundation site. And, if you have time, be sure to check out some of the other incredible tales. So many are truly amazing.
Angel had more more injuries than first believed, as these Goldens seem to demonstrate a quite high tolerance to pain.It was scary to hear about her having a fractured skull and needing extensive surgery.
At only 18 months of age, she is really still a puppy, so I really hope she makes it through …. both physically and emotionally. Her updated medical status is provided in the Today Show update below.
