Lottie was a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. We had lost our Golden
Retriever "Harry" to cancer and when we were ready to love again, we decided
that we wanted another "water" dog. My heart wasn't ready for another
Golden, so I surfed the internet and landed on a Chessie rescue site.
After researching the breed, we found Lottie. She was located in
Cincinnati. We had her flown out, and she became a member of our
family. Unfortunately, Lottie never received love nor a kind hand from
her original owner ( who dumped her off at the local Humane Shelter).
So it took about three years of love and tender care to win her over, but
when we did, it was worth the wait! To see her go from a dog that
would not look you in the eyes to a girl whose eyes smiled whenever she
looked at you, proves that all it takes is love!
We miss our girl, but we will never forget her.
