sweet_ceana Posted January 16, 2010 Report Share Posted January 16, 2010 DH's Grandparent's German Sheppard Annie left us today. She was 12 years old. Everyone in Sun City knew Annie and she will be missed incredibly. Sun City is a retirement community where golf carts are allowed on the streets. Every day at four Annie would hop on the golf cart with Ed and they would cruise around visting friends and folks at the golf courses. Dogs aren't allowed on the golf courses, unless those dogs are Annie. She kept the house safe from mail men and coyotes until her ears failed her earlier last year. She would wheeze a little when she breathed and no longer got up to greet us at the door. That didn't stop everyone from coming to her to say hello, that's why they came over of course, to see Annie. Annie's back leg began to swell in August and whenever I would see her I would massage it for her. She would give you wonderful deep throaty yodels to make sure you knew just how good that massage felt. She spent Christmass this year surrounded by loved ones, and we were thrilled she made it that long. Today Annie had a stroke and lost control of her entire back end. Poor Ed and Nancy had to put down their sweet sweet girl. God speed to the bridge Annie. I'm sure you know how much you will be missed by all of us, but even more so by your Ed and your Nancy. I cannot thank you enough for all of the love, comfort, and purpose you have given them throughout your amazing life. You'll be able to run and jump again now, and chase balls until you are blue in the face. Rest in peace sweet "wolf, mule, and babe," you will be missed.
