Napa was born with Guide Dogs of America to be a guide dog for the blind, and Erin was originally her foster mom. After raising her for 18 months, Erin was supposed to give Napa up and send her off to official training. At the time, Erin thought it was the hardest thing she had to do because she grew to love Napa so much. Two weeks into Napa's training, her allergies caused her to be career changed from being a guide dog for the blind, which although a disappointment for Napa's original calling, was a blessing in disguise because Erin got to adopt Napa and give her a forever home!!|
Napa and Erin did everything together! Napa went to work at Pinterest everyday with Erin. Whether they're hiking, swimming, going to restaurants in SF, hanging at the beach, or cuddling on the couch, Erin & Napa did it all together.
Napa loved her time at the cabin at Bass Lake. Her favorite thing to do was jumping off the end of the dock. She would run so fast down to the dock, nothing could stop her and she did not stop until she was in the water. She loved to fetch sticks and balls in the ocean in Capitola and would swim in the current of the waves tirelessly. She loved to snuggle like no other dog. She was the perfect size to be able to snuggle next to you on a couch and would open stubbornly make room for herself next to you on the couch and rest on your lap.
She will be missed terribly by Erin who was the best dog mom in the world and her grandparents Craig and Mary Beth, Aunt Devon and Uncle Will and Uncle Brendan.
Have fun swimming, hiking and playing in heaven Napa and you and Erin will meet again at Rainbow Bridge!
