Greta was an “oops” puppy from Austin, Texas. Her mother was a show quality Yellow Lab and her fence-jumping father was a Pit but might have been a pig/shark/possum/dingo hybrid. People would always ask “What is that?” rather than “What kind of dog is that?” Her lower jaw was deformed so her tongue always stuck out of the left side of her mouth. She was raised in a home with 11 stray cats so she got in the habit of perching on the arms and backs of sofas, chairs and window sills despite her size. She was brought to Colorado in 2006 by her mom Laura where she met her new doggie brothers, Buddy and Fozzie and her new father, Richard who fell head over heels in love with her at first sight. She loved the snow, playing with her brother Buddy in epic (and noisy) wrestling matches and she loved taking her plush toys (aka her “woobies”) outside and dropping them into the Woobie Hole which she proudly dug herself. She was diagnosed with kidney failure in 2014 but managed to stay with us through another two Christmases. She had soulful brown eyes and everyone who knew her loved her. She has been rendered in six pieces of artwork and had the biggest heart and sweetest disposition. She is loved and missed and we are grateful to have had her in our lives.
