On Saturday, Surry's High Hopes was euthanized. Anna had been getting weaker and had lost more weight. Charlie had to help her up and down the stairs and finally it appeared that the time had come. Drs. Shong and Rockwell kindly did their job and Annabelle was wagging up to the time that she lost consciousness. She will be cremated and buried next to her dog and cat friends at Surry.
Annabelle was from the first litter of Ch. Castlewood Whyaskwhy at Surry. Her sire was Ch. Tabatha's Drifter at Dickendall JH who had the most wonderful temperament. Anna was definitely one of the sweetest dogs that I have ever owned. She was such a love and enjoyed being with the people she loved. She was a wonderful mother to her babies and seemed never to want to stop nursing them. We are fortunate to have Ch. Surry's Rolliing Thunder and Surry's Eclipse, two of her get, here at Surry.
I'm not sure what else to say other than she was loved and will be greatly missed.
