mychip1 Posted January 24, 2012 Share Posted January 24, 2012 (edited) Hi All, Please allow me to post a tribute to sweet Allie who belonged to a wonderful couple, the Browns. First, I need to tell you about them. They adopted their older hound, Bert, who will 13 in a few weeks when he was 9. Each time I see him, even though he is an aging senior, he actually looks improved. And, without question, it is due to the love and compassion that these two people have. Bert became one of the favorites with the local group - and the Brown's were revered for the great work they did with him. Some time later, the group had a bounce named Allie show up. Allie had lost part of her tail. Apparently after an injury, her former owners thought that a little duct tape would do the trick to hold her tail together rather than seeking veterinary care. Additionally, she had frequent in-house urination issues. She wasn't going to be easy to place.....but because of her wonderful sweet nature, the adoption coordinator was determined to find her a good home.....so they called the Browns. It took some time, and despite living on the third floor of a multi-family home, Deb and Al were able to teach Allie how to wait until she was outside to pee. Allie was particularly attached to Al. She really was Daddy's girl. And dear Bert took right away to having a little sister and providing her with the security and comfort she needed to adapt to her wonderful new family. Allie had a smile that would light up a room....a big toothy grin with her lip drawn back showing off her choppers to the gum! That smile brought a smile to all of us! Today I received an email that Allie had passed at the young age of eight. I did not even realize she had been sick - as we saw each other for Christmas photos this year and she looked wonderful. All I know is that she went very quickly (fine at 9:00 and gone by midnight) from what they believe to be cancer. I'm posting a few pictures of this beautiful soul who was taken from us far too soon.....may she run free at the bridge... Here is Allie on the right with her big brother, Bert.
