Arrival Story:
The week that I was closing on my townhouse I saw an ad for a shepherd mix that needed to be adopted from a shelter in a nearby rural area. I took off from work to meet her, and she was wonderful! I closed on my house at 9:30 that Friday, and picked her up at 5pm. We were together for 12 years and 2 days.

Bio:
I had to put Stormer down on Monday, July 2. She had a really bad seizure a week before, and had not eaten since. Even her very favourite treats were unappealing. Her pain meds did not seem to be working anymore, and she was obviously in great pain whenever she had to get up or lie back down. She had no interest in going for a walk. I spoke with my best friend (who is a veterinary pathologist) and with our vet back in Denver and they both said it was time to let her go. Intellectually, I know that I made the right decision, and, at ~15 years old, Stormer was extremely old for a shepherd mix. However, that does not seem to make any difference to my heart. I have only one close friend who has been in my life longer than she was, and this hurts a lot more than I expected. Stormer was a real Mama's girl -- she did not really need anyone else (unless I was not around, then she was fine with just about anyone!). She loved chasing squirrels and rabbits. She learned to tolerate Goldie (mostly). I'm glad she lived long enough to have a few months to enjoy living in a house with a real yard and no stairs.
