Labrador Retriever / Mixed

In the Fall of 1997, we heard a puppy crying through the night. There was a ferocious thunderstorm and we couldn't find the puppy. We finally saw her the next day, hiding in some tall grass behind our back fence. Guinevere looked very much like a black Labrador Retriever with slightly longer hair. The vet thought she might be part Chow, and it seemed he was right, considering her sometimes temperamental moods. Guinevere was very protective of her family. She didn't even like other children coming to our house to play with "her" puppies, otherwise known as our children. We always had to make sure Guinevere stayed in the master bedroom with the door shut when we had visitors, except for my mother, whom she adored. After we moved to Lake Tenkiller, Oklahoma, Guinevere acquired several stepbrothers and a stepsister. Like all healthy puppies, they grew and I believe it was a shock to Guinevere to live with dogs that were actually bigger than she. She stopped being so jealously aggressive toward other dogs. Like many large dogs, Guinevere developed hip pain in her later years, and in 2007, finally crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She was a beautiful, loyal companion, and if I had time enough after caring for our six dogs these days, I believe I'd miss her a lot. A memory that makes me smile is Guinevere's loud baying. You could hear her from a mile away.

I am very sorry to hear of your loss, but I know exactly how you feel. All of your other dogs will help heal the pain. You are such a kind person to rescue her into your home.
