Update: February 7, 2013: My darling Missy passed away unexpectedly after a short illness, Sunday December 16. She died from an undetected abdominal tumor, which ruptured and was bleeding out. I took her to the emergency vet. Our hearts are broken, and her cat is missing her terribly. She died wrapped in my arms, with kisses on her head, wagging her tail.
This was a very happy dog with a very happy life. She was dearly loved.
Our condolences to Missy's family. Thank you for giving her such a wonderful life.
Missy was adopted in April, 2003.
"Missy gets to go to work with me
almost every day and loves everyone our office. She also got introduced
to Lake Michigan and has requested a claw-proof "floaty", because she
wants to be with us every minute of every hour of every day and if we
are floating in the lake, she wants to float with us. She has been
swimming for what we think is the very first time, and LOVES to go for
long walks in the woods with other doggie and people friends. Here is
also a pic of Missy thinking about catherding. The cat is thinking
"Cats are not for herding!""
05/02/2006 Missy got her Canine Good Citizen certificate!
She is now a member of Shaggy Pines Dog Park, and she has a PACK of
human and canine friends. Missy is now PERFECTLY HAPPY, and it is a joy
to us to see it.
We are very proud of Missy. She managed to conquer her considerable
issues to become a complete angel of an adorable dog. She is smiling
ALL the time, and no longer hides in the basement during thunderstorms.
She was on a radio show this morning but we couldn't get her to say
anything, because she knows during working hours she is supposed to be
QUIET. She can do "invisible dog" really well.
