It’s taken me a long time to post about Willow. Willow is and was and will always be one of the most special dogs I ever had the pleasure to breed, own, or train- never mind all three. I was both shocked and devastated when she came back from OFA as borderline in one hip (other one looks good; elbows rated normal, and she’s Embark clear for everything). After much agonizing, I made the heartbreaking, but responsible, choice to rehome her. Willow went to upstate New York, where she lives with lots of children, a stay at home mom, and a great dad, too. They love her to pieces and take amazing care of her. She didn’t do well without me for a time, but she’s adjusted beautifully.
In the mean time, so much has happened in my personal life. It’s been a lot of change, but all for the better. I’ll make another post or two or three about all the good and amazing things that have been happening, but in the meantime, fair well, sweet Willow.
