Platty was a well-known Tulsa Golden Retriever with a tumor on his nose that made him resemble a Platypus.
The dog even had his own Facebook page, which has nearly 30,000 likes. His owner posted the following message there today:
“We will try to post something a little later today when words are a more ascertainable goal, but we wanted to let everyone know as soon as possible. Platty passed peacefully today surrounded by so much love. While our hearts are breaking, we know he's in a happier place right now. Hug your dog today. And if you don't have a dog, hug a shelter dog.”
The night before he died, Platty was recognized at the Tulsa City Council meeting. Platty and his owner were not at the meeting, as perhaps he wasn’t doing well at the time.
