Wait for her


Some people would ask: “Who takes a 16-year-old dog home knowing that heartbreak is just around the corner?”


Anna asks: “Who would not want to share the best year of a 16-year-old dog’s life?”


Here’s to Anna. For loving Royce.


Farewell, sweet boy. Wait for her at the bridge.

  1. Grady is 13 we think. Already blind, he has now gotten glaucoma. What is the point of treating him? Because in his former life, he didn’t get the treatment he deserved or he wouldn’t have gone blind. Or been starving. Yes, his time is short. But it will be all the sweeter, like Royce’s.

  2. Why wouldn’t you do everything to spend even a limited time in the presence of this smile? Beautiful Royce. And bless Anna for her beautiful heart.

  3. Thank you Anna for taking in this precious boy and giving him a home for a year. You have been there for so many dogs at HB, especially the office dogs.

  4. I remember reading a quote – “I don’t know where dogs go when they die, but that is where I want to go.” I agree with that as, I am sure, will many of your readers. 🙂
