Arrival Story:
Our Irish Setter, Tequila Sunrise, died Sept. 1, 1993 and we got Anna Sept. 22, 1993. My husband went to Chicago for 5 days for some business seminar. My sister-in-law had a friend that was moving and didn't want to take Anna with them so my daughter and I went just to look at her, since she was a "puppy" (born 2-21-92). They kept her all the time in a wire cage in the kitchen and supposedly abused her and beat her alot with a baseball cap. They let her out of the cage so we could see her and that was it. She came home with us that same day. Anheuser Busch was her registered name, selected by her original owners, but we shortened it to Anna because it sounded better!

April 16, 2004 - Anna got up to walk from the back porch to the garage, made it half way and her back legs gave out. She drug herself over to her blanket, eyes glazed over, and began to lose control of her bodily functions. Upon taking her to the vet we discovered that, without any warning signs, her spleen had been ruptured by a tumor. The vet gave two options 1.)exploratory surgery with very little hope for a positive outcome or 2.)putting her to sleep. As hard as it was to do, but understanding that it would be better and painless, we put her down. She was a good ol' girl and our family won't be the same without her.
