My sweet little dear Annie (short for Annapolis) turned 14 this year! She's been a constant pal and the sweetest little love. Yes, she smells. Yes, she's riddled with weird fatty tumors. Yes, her leg doesn't work quite properly. Yes, she's stone deaf. But she has the spirit of a much younger dog, and while she's maybe not playful (she really has always been more of a snuggler than a fetcher) she's sweet and she's mine and I love her.
