Wow! the years have passed quickly.
SU brought her home for Christmas in 2002 to mend my broken heart over Snook, an awesome dog who got very sick and had to be PTS.
Fanny was 13 pounds and Windsor, who had been a lonely king of the heap for a few months thought she was the neatest thing - a play toy. A month later after she had grown some he looked at her and said what happened?
Through the years she has brought us many a laugh and given many a kiss and hug. She does not cuddle up to anyone but loves people to cuddle on her. At the BP she walks up to people, especially people she knows, and gives them a big smile so she gets attention.
The day she learnt to swim is forever engraved in my memory. She was in shallow water, on leash, and she took one step, the ground fell away from her and the panic, fear then shear joy on her face when she realized she could swim was priceless. Of course, I had no camera. The first thing she does at the BP is swim, in a circle, then she gets out walks a few yards, shakes then gets in and does it all over again, then it is time for squirrel chasing.
AT 18 months she was diagnosed with HD, options were discussed and it was decided to treat the pain of arthritis until it got too bad then maybe we would consider surgery. Two years ago I started her on fish oil pills and she is a different dog! Or should I say she has her puppy ways back. Butt tucking though the long grass, dive bombing Eddie in the pond, chasing wild life at the park - she is in love with life.
Happy birthday baby girl, here's hoping for another 7!
Now, when I figure out how to post pictures I will!
