8/5/2008 - 4/28/2016Betty was a gentle giant. At 115 lbs, she intimidated a lot of people. But when you entered our home you quickly found out that Betty just loved being loved. If you were sitting, Betty was there, available to be pet. Which we did! How could you resist? Betty came to us when she was 2. Living most her life in a kennel and then thankfully with a friend, Betty never got the attention that a puppy should get. She wasn't played with, adored or even had experience with other dogs. When a friend rescued her, he started giving her the life she deserved, but circumstances led Betty to yet another home and I thank Don for that. When I first brought Betty to the dog park, she didn't know how to play with other dogs. All she wanted in life was to be loved. During our 6 years together, I have watched Betty learn to play with other dogs, big and small, and become the confident girl she was meant to be. She had 2 pack mates that she loved and they loved her in return. I watched her grow and learn new things and not be afraid of the world. Betty, I never knew I would love you so much. My heart is torn to shreds without you and I don't know how Amos will be without you. I will never forget my sweet gentle giant.Laurie FoxFort lauderdale, FloridaMay 1, 2016
