We adopted Annabelle (originally Roxy) back in the fall of 2006. She was with us through the birth of our three children, and was a wonderful companion for our family as it grew. As toddlers our kids gave her the nickname “Abo” as they had a hard time saying her full name. She was always very gentle with our kids, who she viewed as an excellent source of supplemental food from vacuuming up the floor around them. She was wonderful with all of our extended family’s dogs, especially her best friend Stella. She was a great friend on numerous walks around the neighborhood, hikes through the wilderness, and road trips to the beach. It was a truly sad day for our family when we had to put Annabelle down this past February after nearly 15 years. We miss her so much!
