We are all college roomies, and we decided to get a puppy. We went to the local pet center, and got there just in time to see a five month old german shephard mix puppy with a red tag on her cage, which meant she was scheduled for euthanization, within the next day. We couldn’t have that happen to such a beautiful dog, so we decided to adopt her.

We think she knew that she was going to a better place, because her long floppy tail would wag uncontrollably, which led to the rest of her small little body to shake. She was the cutest thing on four paws. When she was 2 we decided to get her spayed.

At the young age of 4, she was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. She began to waddle, and we all felt so bad. We took her to the vet, where they tested her, where she was positive for heart worms.

A year later when she was 5 the pain in her was getting unbearable and eventually came to her not greeting us at the door anymore and allowing her to come to college football games with us.

We left her at the vets one night, after they said they might have a cure for her many problems, but it just got worse overnight, and we will always remember that dreadful time, 2:46 AM. The vet called, and said she was having multiple seizures, and to come over as soon as possible. He said her living would be a miracle.

That miracle didn’t seem to be with us that night, she died in our laps. We all kissed her goodbye, as we sang her her favorite song, “I’ve got the whole world in my hands.


You will always be in our hearts,
and no one will ever take your place.
