THIS PAGE IS FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL HILLSIDE GOLDEN RETRIEVERS THAT MADE AN IMPACT ON THEIR FAMILY.   WE  WERE SO GLAD THAT THESE DOGS HAD SUCH WONDERFUL FAMILIES.  WE THANK THE OWNERS FOR PROVIDING THE LOVE AND CARE TO OUR PUPPIES & DOGS.  (Each dog will have a tribute up for viewing for at least six months from time of passing as a tribute to these dogs and we invite the owner to write tribute).

"My best friend closed her eyes last night,
As her head was in my hand.
The Doctors said she was in pain,
And it was hard for her to stand.
The thoughts that scurried through my head,
as I cradled her in my arms,
Were of her younger, puppy years,
And Oh!...her many charms.
Today, there was no gentle nudge,
With an intense "I Love YOU" gaze.
Only a heart that's filled with tears,
Remembering our joy-filled days.
But, an Angel just appeared to me,
And he said, "CRY NO MORE,
GOD also loves our canine friends...

He's installed a "doggy door".


  RIP to HILLSIDE OVER THE RIVER CDX TD RAE .... 13 1/2 years... was put to sleep today when the tumor on her foot, which was consuming  her foot broke open and she could not use the foot..  River was own by Orville Tharp after his wife, Kathleen pasted away several years ago from cancer....Kathleen & River were so good for each other.  Kathleen was so proud that River's family.  River, the sister to Under, Under was mother of Wesson( making River Wesson's aunt).  So proud of Wesson, that she got a Wesson son (Flint) after she was diagnose with Stage III cancer.  River & Flint kept Kathleen going,even on those many bad days. River hated obedience... so Kathleen stopped trying for that UD on her and turned her training opportunities on Flint, with River supervising.  Kathleen got Flint to 1 leg on UD before passing.  I was sad to hear about River's passing because she was such a GREAT dog until I realized I should be celebrating....I know in my heart, that Kathleen  and her dad, Bob Sullivan, have their dogs and are training again...I am glad that HILLSIDE dogs played important part of Kathleen's life and that Kathleen & Orville meant everything to River.  TOGETHER AGAIN!!!!
