Wesley came into my life when he was just 12 weeks old. He was the most loveable little Golden Retriever, who licked and wagged his tail into my heart. Our bond was cemented instantly. Always there for me, always a friend and so beautiful, inside and out. He made the hard times bearable and the good times even better. All who met him were touched by his gentile, friendly manner and enthusiasm. My dearest friend of 11 years passed away at 11:45 am on May 20, 2010 of Cancer. He was a wonderful and pure spirit. I will miss him all the days of my life.
