My Dog Annie: 1993-2008

Today our family decided to put our dog Annie to sleep after the vet told us that she was suffering from kidney failure and ulcers, and that she was no longer eating or drinking.

Annie was a wonderful dog... she was a big fan of running and bird-hunting. Many a pheasant met their match through Annie's dedicated and skillful sleuthing in the fields. Until the last year or two of her life, Annie only had two speeds: stop, and sprint. She also had an impressive talent for taking off on short hikes, getting lost for hours on end, and then nonchalantly showing up back home after successfully eluding the search parties sent out to find her.

Annie lived a long happy life, and she will be missed.

She really looked like part of the family in that picture...My mother used to say that a dog was a boy's best friend, and she was right.
Sorry to read the news.

Beards aren't weird... so says my stoopid friend Chris Walker-Bush. He thinks you look hot with it. Grow it man, grow it. God bless Annie...tear.
