Found her in a junk yard in Pennsylvania when she was a pup. She's been with us ever since.

Bio:
Old age is starting to show in this girl. Even on the bad days, she doesn't let it slow her down. She still likes to go for a romp in the backyard with Ciara now and again. She still rules the roost and makes sure the other dog and kitties know it. She was recently diagnosed with a neurological disorder where she will slowly lose control of her back end. It's a hard thing to watch especially when the mind is still sharp. In the mean time we will keep her as comfortable as possible and when she has had enough, she will let us know what she wants us to do. Update 7/13/06- with tears in my eyes and a heavy heart, Dusty was helped to the bridge. Run fast and free like you did when you were a pup and catch as many sqeakies as you can.
