Annie had her AKC CGC and Rally Novice title, thanks to Anne Swan’s classes. She took agility class and was a certified therapy dog. Annie’s theme was “Let’s get this party started!” and although most of her pictures make her look like incredibly sweet—sainthood was not one of her aspirations.

At eight years old she was completely unreliable off leash, especially if she saw a smiling face. She was a registered golden retriever, but her mean-ole-mom did not know registration naming protocol and therefore, she had the dumbest of all possible names, which shall not be divulged in this public forum. She was joyful, exuberant, and a teacher and delight to both myself and her little sister Smooch.
