Elizabeth Warren Loses Beloved Golden Retriever 5 Days Before Election

Elizabeth Warren is a newly-elected United States Senator for the state of Massachusetts, the first female to fill that role.  She is a financial guru, Harvard Law School professor, .and more importantly, a golden retriever lover.  Her beloved golden Otis passed away just 5 days before the election.  Otis helped Elizabeth in her campaign, “Dog Lovers for Elizabeth Warren”

Otis was diagnosed with Canine Lymphoma in the spring, and by Halloween was unable to get up to greet the trick or treaters.  Warren says Otis wasn’t an overly active golden, and would just “stand and pose” after retrieving the ball.

On  November 30, 2012,  Warren posted on her facebook page:

One of the most fun parts of the campaign was sharing our golden retriever Otis with all of you. So I now need to share some sad news: We lost Otis. He was battling cancer, and he suddenly went downhill. Bruce and I are heartbroken, but we are grateful for seven and a half years with our big, handsome boy. He’ll always live in our hearts.”

A very beautiful article  from The Boston Globe about Senator-elect Warren and Otis, written by fellow golden retriever owner Brian McGrory can be found here.
