Annie was my constant companion. We were glued at the hip. I rescued her when she was one year old. She came to live with my Australian Shepherd, my husband Larry and I 15 years ago. What adventures we had! Hiking in Nevada, camping trips, long ambling walks, silly games in the evening like "Sit, and when I tell you, find the treats". I hid treats all over the house and it took the dogs an hour to find them all. We also played hide and seek. My husband I would hide all over the house as they searched. My husband died in 2009. Denver died in 2011. It was just Annie and I for the past ten years. I was so grateful for her presence. At sixteen, Dr. Caroline Kiert compassionately ended her life, with me holding her until the end. Annie had a fabulous life and her death was done with concern, compassion and so much kindness. In Dr. Kiert, I felt I had a soulmate present. It doesn't get any better then this when reflecting on the life of a beautiful dog. In her name, I will rescue another dog. And I am so appreciative of Dr. Kiert.Diane WildeSacramento, CaliforniaSeptember 15, 2019
