RIP Dolly

1999 - 2010

Dolly was a great dog and a loved member of our family for 11 years.  She came to us as a pup when Brooke was 3 yrs. old.  She and her siblings were being given away at Wal-Mart just after we moved into our house.  Papa saw the puppies and took Brooke over to see them, Dolly was the first one to crawl up into Brooke's lap and lay down.  Brooke named her and has loved her dearly since.

A few weeks ago we noticed that Dolly was not wanting to put pressure on one of her paws.  The vet looked her over and said that nothing was broken and that it was probably arthritis.  On Sat., Sept. 11 Brooke came to me and said that she thought Dolly was dead, she couldn't see her breathing from the window.  Mike went and checked on her and discovered that she was indeed gone. :(  She'll be missed very much!
