and Perle Olsson were the lucky recipients of the most wonderful
puppy. Bright beyond his 9 weeks, Ernie brought a wonderful sense
of youthfulness to their 9 year old Chant
daughter, Missy. Missy desperately needed a companion and Ernie
was the perfect little buddy. Ernie always kept Missy busy, bringing
her the various balls and toys from the toy box, but he also took
her on walks with him through the 2 acre restored prairie, where
the two romped and played and lived.
could often be found helping Perle with the planting, bringing her
supplies - gloves (always two!), kneeling pads, hand tools and sometimes
even a plant or two! Every morning, Ernie accompanied Perle when
she filled the bird feeders and placed the fruit out for the animals.
also led the walks along the prairie paths, specifically enjoying
a stop for a treat under the apple trees! As Ernie aged, he could
be found relaxing with Perle and the other Golden family members,
Charlie and Maile, on the hill
off the prairie path, watching the birds and enjoying the outdoors.
Malagold Solar Energy was the perfect name for a dog so surrounded
know that Karl and Perle terribly miss their little Ernster. Their
home is just not the same, but it will always be filled with the
most wonderful memories of a unique and very special dog.
