Brandy 12/24/2005-09/05/2018

I'm not on here much anymore, but I wanted to share for those that may not be on Facebook. We had to say good-bye to Brandy last month. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do and the worst day of my life. We miss her so much.
I always credit this forum with helping me find nose work which has turned into my passion. Brandy and I had many wonderful adventures and I will cherish those memories always.

I'm sorry to hear about Brandy.

I remember the photo you entered in "senior dobes" on our calendar back in 2016--doing her nosework, at 9 years old. It looked like she was enjoying showing off her skill.

I know our dobes can never be with us long enough, but it is a blessing that you were able to be together all of those years . Lots of memories...

So sorry to hear of your loss Meldrew. It's hard to lose any of these dogs but the longer you have them the harder it is to see them go...

Sleep softly Brandy...
