Farewell, Annie

It's a sad day at the store today. Our "mascot" and the owners' Golden Retriever, Annie, passed away this morning. She would have been 11 in the spring. She was always at the store, every day, til a few years ago. (She came out front and laid on the floor behind a good customer of ours. The customer didn't know she was there and fell backwards over her. She didn't want them to not bring Annie any more, but they thought it was better to be safe than sorry. That customer didn't get hurt, but someone else may not have been so lucky.) We had a lot of people who used to come in specifically to see Annie. She was a good girl and will be missed. She was a terrible mooch come lunchtime! I feel bad for K&W, the owners. It was 11 years ago on the 13th that their daughter passed away, now two days later their dog dies. Not a good week for them.

awww sorry to hear that! It's never easy to lose a beloved pet, their love is so unconditional it makes it extra hard.

I am so sorry to hear about Annie's passing. Goldens are such lovely dogs, they are gorgeous inside and out.
