Hannah's mom says: About 17 years ago, I was in search of the perfect golden retriever. Instead, I found the perfect mixed breed at my local shelter. It was true love! By the time that dog was ten years old, my husband and I were ready for my golden retriever. But I found out I was pregnant. Then, when my dog was 14 1/2 years old, we had to have her put to sleep. I was devastated. At the time, I had a four-year-old son and a one-year-old son, so I was in no position to handle a puppy. By July 2006, I could no longer take it anymore. I missed having a dog. So on August 30 we adopted an eight-week-old golden retriever, and we call her Hannah. She is a dream. The boys love her, and she is so sweet!
