It's hard to sum up eleven and a half years you spent with an amazing girl but I'll try. My husband Greg and son Tanner followed the animal control truck to the pound in July of 2004. They were looking at dogs and saw Husker. My husband came home and told my daughter and I about her and that he would go back to see if she was there on Sunday. This was a Tuesday and we had waited for so long to adopt a dog, so I put the family in the car and off to the pound we went. When we got there we meet the cutest, black lab mix ever. She was friendly and just adorable. We adopted her and picked her up the next day. We had talked about names for a dog before but Husker just seemed to fit her. Tanner and Alex loved playing with her and Greg taught her the ball. Six months later we adopted we adopted a german shepherd named Lola and Husker had a sister. It was fun to see them interact and love each other. Husker loved us all but she was really a daddy's girl. They were always together and he couldnt go anywhere without her following him. |
Husker loved to be outside in the sun and Id often find her laying in the grass sunning herself. She was also a ball chaser in her younger days and loved to tug on the rope. In time we adopted another german shepherd named Hannah and Husker was the leader of the three dogs. They did what she told them to do and boy dd they love her. I bought the three of them matching scarves and took pictures of them wearing them. Husker was really laid back and allowed us to put hats, sunglasses, scarves and even a shirt on her. I will miss her gentle spirit and funny personality.
Husker you will be greatly missed and thank you so much for picking us as your family. I hope your new journey is a good one and they have bacon and a lot of treats at the Rainbow Bridge. We all miss you and hope to see you when it's our turn to go. Until then watch over us with your sisters Lola and Husker, until we meet again.
