Pet Connections

Angie Mader 2003-2015

Angie came to us through my job, at an animal hospital where I was working at the time as a manager. My boss and managing veterinarian bred English Labrador Retrievers for guide dogs. We had a month previously adopted Cyndi from her, a 1-1/2 year old black female returned by a former owner. 

Cyndi was settling in great at our house, when my Boss asked me to watch a pup in my office. Six-week old baby puppy was coal black with a little otter tail. She had been recovering from an entropian surgery of the eye and in for a recheck exam that day.  She was house trained amazingly that early and I spent the day amused by her antics playing with water bottles in my office!

Well, of course it was love at first site and a week later I brought the pup home to become our second dog in the family. Her big red tongue rolled out of her mouth and my husband promptly named her “Angie” after the Rolling Stones song and logo!

Angie was with us for 12 years and never ceased to amaze us with her cleverness and boisterous personality. She loved to swim and enjoyed walks with Cyndi and her cat, Cleo. People and animals alike always took an instant liking to Angie. Angie never knew the life of a service dog, but I am sure she loved being spoiled and enjoyed all the adventures she experienced with our family.

Angie sadly succumbed to complications from cancer on May 2, 2015. Angle will be greatly missed by all who knew her!   

Rest easy old Girl, until we meet again!
