Arrival Story:
Like so many other dog stories, Petra's humans went to 'just look' at a litter of puppies. She was not exactly the runt, but close to it. Anyway, as these things have a way of happening, her humans rode home that afternoon with a new family member. Little did they know they did not buy a dog, but a new master of the house! Nothing gets done without her approval.

Sadly. Petra passed away earlier this month just shy of her 17th birthday. She fought a long battle with Cushing's disease and a heart condition, but remained a good natured and loving dog to the end. She will always be remembered, and can never be replaced. Many thanks to all the dogs who befreinded her.
