Being the alpha dog, barking at every little noise, chasing the tennis ball
Being touched or petted when it's not her idea
cooked aspargas, popcorn, and the Pizza Hut delivery man
All over her "daddy"
Chasing her tail on command, then reversing when told "reverse".
Annie's older "sister" Casey had grown up with a large cat named Pooh Bear. When it was discovered that Pooh had cancer and was going to die, Annie was chosen to be Casey's new companion. The breeder had all of us, Casey included, "interview" for Annie. I sat down on the floor among four pups and one immediately started nawing on my shoe laces while the others played. The breeder asked if I knew which pup she picked for us and I said probably the one chewing my shoe. Yup! That was Annie. The truly amazing thing was, the breeder was already calling her Annie. I had never communicated to her what I was going to call the pup, although I already had decided on Annie, since we knew we wanted a female. I was stunned when I heard the breeder call her Annie. We knew right then, that we all belonged together.
Annie has gone through obedience training and started to learn herding. She was showing promise as a herding dog when she was found to have an aggressive cancer on her font paw and it was nescessary to amputate part of her paw. As a result, she had to give up the rigors of herding because she'd come up lame. Now she just bosses around all of her "syblings" and alerts us to any potential intruders.

This morning I said goodbye to my beloved Annie. She was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in November 2008 and we were treating her with Lasix. Last night Annie's condition worsened. I could not see pumping drugs into her to keep her with me so we drove to the vet this morning and I let her go. I was blessed to have her in my life for 14 years. She was a sweet and tough little pup and she will be terribly missed. Being a dog mom is tough.
