Meet Hannah. Ruger's BIG pack sister. This beautiful German Shepherd Dog found her way to our hearts before Christmas of 2006. A man knocked on our door.. Asked if we were missing a dog?? Of course we were not. Well he said he was taking her to the pound. Bleeding hearts that we are we said NO WAY. We'll find her owners. (YEAH RIGHT) Hannah was approximately nine months old at the time. No one came to claim her. Our neighbors originally decided to take her. But Hannah had a different plan. Several weeks went by and Hannah found herself back at our place. She settled in... Then we noticed she was tired after running. And her ears appeared to jump with every heart beat. Two cardiology appointments later and we were scheduled for open heart surgery for a patent ductus arteriosis. She did well.

And Hannah NOW!!! Hannah had her first Agility trial this last weekend. She took first place in AKC Novice standard! Hannah we are so proud of her!! The title of the post is Hannah's AKC registered name.
I know this is Ruger's blog. But I don't think Ruger will mind sharing his story with his pack brothers and sisters. Well this post is Hannah's story (in a nut shell). Then working up to her wonderful weekend.
