So I guess the order of hierarchy in the Robnett household goes like this… Stuffed monkey toy, the cat, THEN Tank the Great Dane. Just to be sure I have it right.

Thanks to Jessica for always sending great photos of her boy Tank.

Goodbye to our sweet Lulu

Goodbye to our sweet Lulu

Our own Doug and Peggy Peterson lost their sweet girl Lulu on Wednesday. She was either 13 or 14 years of age and Doug and Peggy did everything they could to keep her with them as long as they could. Two better owners you could never find. They loved her with all their hearts and what a wonderful life they provided for her.

Our deepest condolences to this very caring couple on their loss.

We asked them to write a memorial to Lulu and here is what they wrote to us:

“We adopted Lulu on July 22, 2008, just a few weeks after our Danes Max and Chloe died 5 days apart. We loved her from the moment she bolted out of the kennel and tried to jump in the truck! She had been a stray, and the vet guessed she was 3-4 years old. She was so skinny! But full of life, and so happy to have a home. We brought Sampson home from GDRNC the next day, and Lulu went to work letting him know who was in charge. She was a handful, and we called Colleen every day for the first two weeks to get advice on how to manage her very assertive behavior. She learned quickly and became one of the best dogs we have ever had. She adored squeaky toys, running at the lake, rawhide chews and meal times; she and Sampson became inseparable friends. She was surprisingly funny and was the happiest dog ever. She had pneumonia last year, and the vet told us to prepare ourselves for her death – then called a few hours later to say she had miraculously recovered and to come get her! But age was catching up to her, and by the end of last year she needed a halter to help her stand up, and to walk. We knew the time was here when she wasn’t interested in dinner or cookies. Even at her last hour, she was a great ambassador for Rescue, visiting the staff at the vet’s office and giving everyone there a final kiss. Our home isn’t the same without her and we will forever cherish the years we had together.

Sobbing,

Peggy and Doug”

Their other Great Dane, Sampson, will grieve for the loss of his girl too.

Despina was thinking about adding another Great Dane to her home as a friend for her handsome boy, Emerson. I guess somewhere along the way plans changed because Despina just sent us this photo of Emerson’s new friend. Emerson had never met a cat before but was very good when they first met.

Thank you Despina, for sending us this cute shot!
