The only picture we have of Whiskey as a little puppy!
Whiskey at 7 months old.
By the age of 4, she was already getting some grey on her face.
Whiskey almost died at the age of 4. She contracted Leptospirosis, a rare bacterial infection that causes the kidneys to shut down. She spent two weeks at the vets office and at the beginning they didn't think she would survive. But she did, and even though she also had two bladder stone operations over the years she was for the most part a very healthy dog. She went on a lot of hikes with us, even doing a 3 mile hike a couple of months before she passed away.
Enjoying the sunshine on our backyard picnic table, age 7
Whiskey liked the warmth of our waterbed and she used to get herself right under the covers with her head on the pillow! Age 8
Whiskey came almost everywhere with us, and even enjoyed going for a canoe ride. Age 9
Whiskey, age 11.
Whiskey loved playing on the beach, even at age 14.
Whiskey, age 15.
We sure do miss you Whiskey!
