Annie by Paula

To my Sweet Annie!

A dear sweet loving little dog who found me at the Humane League back in early November of 1989. I had gone two years without a dog and this little girl melted my heart. She was my best friend and knew more about me than anyone. She loved to snuggle in bed in the mornings and could actually smile (she even had dimples in her nose). She was a flirt and an attention getter and made sure that whoever was in the same room she was in took the time to pet her and tell her what a beautiful girl she was. She made me laugh she made me feel loved she made me cry with her dearness. Cancer took her all too quickly (less than a month) and I miss her fiercely terribly painfully. She was my first “little girl” and she will always remain in my heart and in my memories as a “Happy Dog.” I know she’s with my Dad who died in January of ’95. She grieved for him so when he died but now they’ll go for lots of walks together. I will love you always my Annie-dog and I know that you will wait to greet me with tail wagging and whimpers of happiness when I finally go home. I’ll see you Annie-girl…someday. And give your Pap a kiss for me. Thank you Annie for helping to open my heart to give and receive more love. Thank you to all my beloved pets who have died for helping me become a better person. I miss each and every one of you so very much. And I will love all of you….always.
