    Mike that’s tuff. How great was that to have that last retrieve with her doing what she loves and with all whom she loves. Please accept my condolences to you and the family.

    Mr Mike , Sir, I am truly sorry for your loss, it's numbing I know, it's happened to me with my beloved drake , he's in a cedar box next to my gun safe , I just could not bury him, the day we put him down I drove out to the lake by myself and just sit and reflected over the years we had , and some of the good hunts and funny things he did, I've got a little British male named Chance now , I dread the day we part , Lord I love these dogs, again, I'm sorry!!

    That's one of the hardest things as a dog owner to do Mike. What a great tribute to Annie, she was a great dog. I was fortuntant to have hunted with her, I'll never forget the "look" from her when I dumped that spoony.... priceless !! Take care my friend !!

    Dang Mike. Sorry to hear that you had to do that and the circumstances under which it had to be done. Never easy. Sure glad you have so many great memories and pictures with her.

    So very very sorry to hear of this Mike. As you know, I had to put Annie's sister (G) down two years ago ago for a similar issue. The last couple of years seeing pics of Annie has made me happy, while thinking of G. So very sorry. Aside from the hunting aspect, I know how she was at home. I know she has a special place in your heart. I feel for you, Moxie as well.

    Take care.
