While Hannah was only in our lives for 2.5 years, she was the heart of our family. Hannah was surrendered to a rescue when she was at least 9 years old, still nursing two puppies. She had been chained out in a backyard, used for breeding and as a guard dog. She came with no vet records. Our family decided to foster her once the puppies were weaned, and she never left. Even though Hannah was dog reactive and had a long list of medical issues (DCM, vWD, arthritis, broken teeth, and later cancer), she lived life to the fullest. She had her Advanced Trick Dog Title and was working on her Senior Barn Hunt title and went on many camping and backpacking trips with us. While she was our first Doberman, she won't be the last.
Hannah was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, and while she was handling treatment very well initially, she got very sick two weeks ago and we made the difficult decision to let her go on 10/17. I will be forever grateful that we had the opportunity to be her family, and that we were able to give her the gift of peace in the comfort of our home.
True love stories have no endings, until we meet again sweet girl.
