Chance
GSRNE #138
Adopted in January 2003  

Rest in peace, beautiful girl. You are missed. 

Her story from happier times: Chance is doing AWESOME! She’s really blossomed, very sure of herself now, loves to play…her favorite is ‘tug of war” with her squeak toys, she’s a real snow dog and loves running through the drifts, rolling around in the snow, and sticking her face in it.

She’s also turned into a great traveler. We took her with us for Thanksgiving at my brother in law’s home in the White Mountains…they had a dozen or so people over, she behaved as a real lady, impeccable house manners, made friends with everyone ! We also took her with us to Portsmouth for Christmas with our children and grandchildren….she loves to give the grandchildren big wet kisses.

Chance is a real joy, we can’t thank you enough for putting us together with her ! I can’t believe its only been two years, it seems like she’s been with us forever. BTW….no problem at all with her hip ! Watching her, you’d never know she had a problem

Here’s a couple of pictures of Chance. I had hoped to get some of her walking, or at least standing, because she has such beautiful lines. She’s almost breathtakingly beautiful when she’s in “alert” (actually “huntress”, like when she sees a squirrel…) mode…ears up, tail up, head up…totally focused. Unfortunately though, I took these right after we got back from a long walk in this great spring-like weather and she just wanted to plop down in the snow. Next time I’ll take them before we go!

I forgot to tell you, one of the most endearing traits Chance has developed is saying goodnight to us. Of course she sleeps in our bedroom, and her nightly ritual is first to go to Denise’s side of the bed and then mine for a few minutes of petting. Then she walks over to her bed and goes to sleep for the night.
