Anabelle arrived as a vibrant, beautiful pup and at the age of 5 she was diagnosed with leukemia. In defiance of the two months to live prognosis, she beat cancer and lived her best life for another 6 years. Cancer did not win this time! Today, my sweet baby went to sleep, just 2 months short of her 11th year. Her little body was tired, but she was still as vibrant and beautiful, her sweet soul drifting off to a place without doctors, needles and medication. Anabelle was a grateful dog, she always did her very best, she never complained, and she was spoiled, but ever humble. Our hearts ache now in her absence, but the joy of her presence remains within us.
