Losing a Faithful Friend

Do you believe dogs are man’s best friend?

This past week we lost one of our beloved family members, Hunter Abigail, our West Highland White Terrier (Westie.) For 15.5 years she had been a loving faithful friend.

Having a puppy from 8 weeks old is not much different than raising another child. Bred from championship stock, she was born in Ft. Walton Beach in a litter of 6 pups. In fact she had a brother, Rocky, who also lived in Tallahassee. Whether it was hanging out on porch or pool deck, traveling for the holidays or being chased by the children, she was great.

Hunter had a great veterinarian, Dr. Tom Davis, from the South Monroe Animal Hospital in Tallahassee, who affectionately referred to her as a “show girl.” This week Dr. Tom was right there with her as she passed away and he was a saint through out all of her days of care.

No doubt we are dog lovers; Hunter was easy to love. Over 15 + years of being a faithful friend, there was never a day of regret of being her buddy. Hunter Abigail you will be missed.
