Last March, when I contacted Greyt Friends about learning more about greys, in the hopes of adopting one, Dee listened to what I was looking for, what my lifestyle was, and said "we've got a couple senior girls. Angie and Andi. THey're both wonderful, but Andi *loves* to travel. And she's black" which was what I was looking for - a black dog, female, senior, that would go places with me.

 

So I went to Dee's house, where both the girls were fostering, and Angie came up to me, looked into my eyes, and licked my chin. I was hooked, and she's been in my heart since April, and in my home since May.

 

But Andi always had a special place, too. She was my "almost" dog. I rejoiced when she was adopted out, even though I missed her when I was house-sitting for Dee.

 

Today, while Dee and I were talking about prospects for our availables, she said that Highway's mom was looking for a new senior girl, since she had to let Andi go to the bridge a couple weeks ago.

 

I was stunned. Turns out my sweet "almost" dog had osteo, and there was nothing they could do for her.

 

Andi and Angie were the first greys I met, and it was just a fluke that the dog who stole my heart was not the black female I went there to meet, but the "yeller dawg" that licked my chin that day.

 

She wasn't mine, but I find myself crying anyway, because she was my friend.

 

Run free, old girl....enjoy your new life.

ya know, I was just thinking about her today, because I think about her everytime I have to hoist Angie into my truck cab (she *hates* riding in the truck, or most other vehicles, for that matter, and never willingly goes into them). Everytime I hoist her in, I remember Dee saying "Andi *loves* to travel", and find myself wondering if I'd made the right choice in picking this sweet girl instead of that one.

 

Guess I'll stop wondering, now.

I know that pain you're feeling... one of my friend's senior dogs just passed from osteo, and she too, touched my heart in such a short time. Godspeed, sweet Andi and may all the other precious Bridge kids welcome you with whirly tails. f_yellow
