Postcard from Arizona- 14

18 September 2018
Benson, AZ

This is the entry I’ve been dreading. Today we lost Annie to a combination of cancer and kidney disease. She made it to 11 years 9 months, dieing just 50 days after her sister Kelly. According to the AKC, berners live an average of about 6 years 10 months, so she did good for a berner. But not nearly long enough for a really good dog.

Our two Bernese Mtn. Dogs Kelly (l) and Annie.

They’ll be sorely missed. And it leaves the name of the blog, a dog house on wheels, with a hollow ring. Well, I guess it’s still their dog house, so we’ll carry it on.

Celia and I are full-time RVers wintering (and now summering!) in southeast AZ. Our 2 Bernese Mountain Dogs, Annie & Kelly, prompted the name of this blog but sadly are gone because of kidney failure. They will live forever in our hearts.
