Just a few days shy of her 15 1/2 birthday, my heart girl Hannah peacefully drifted away in her sleep during the wee hours of Monday morning. She was in my arms and was surrounded by her best friends, Chico and Madison. She had just recovered from acute kidney failure in January so this was a huge shock.
Ch. Gridiron Affair of the Heart (Hannah) was not a rescue. This sweet mini BT with a huge heart rescued me and helped me heal from the passing of my first rescue BT, Ripley. Hannah loved everything on this earth and was always the first to greet the hospice and retirement dogs that came into our home. She, Hazel and Hayley loved showing the new dogs the ropes! Hannah was my constant sidekick and loved going on home visits and evaluations. In the 10 1/2 years that she owned me, her sole mischievous moment was sneaking into the breakfast nook and almost finishing off a Costco rotisserie chicken.
We brought her to Bubbling Well in Napa to be cremated. If any local folks haven't been, I highly recommend a visit there. It's near the Silverado County Club and sits high on the hill with a beautiful view of the Napa Valley. Deer and other wildlife are welcomed there and the sight of baby deer playing in the cemetery is now etched forever in my memory.
Thank you, Lora Eggleston, for letting me have one of the BEST dogs in the universe.
Sweet dreams, my little princess. I'm so lost without you...thank you for all the love and companionship you've given me.
Your loving mom,
