Arrival Story:
Our family adopted Gusti (full name - Augusta) on 8/8/88 from the animal shelter. She was very shy and very affectionate. Gusti was an active, happy, puppy. When her companion, Liesel died in 1993, Gusti became very depressed, and was never the same dog again - even after we adopted Niko. (see bio **) She was a VERY sweet girl though, and she lived to be 15. We lost her in 2003 and still miss her very much. :-(

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND ** Gusti did not see Liesel after she died. We put Liesel down in 1993 after a hard fight with cancer. We believe because of this, she felt as if she was abandoned. She never stopped looking for Liesel. We have never made this mistake again. Whether it was one of our horses, another dog, or cat, we made sure all the animals had a chance to say 'goodbye'. We are lucky that our vet makes house calls. This way, any animal we've had to put down, we could do it where they were most comfortable - at home, surrounded by friends.
