Iris was truly incredible. Coming to us a a senior dog, heart worm positive, missing a leg, and having lived her life mostly outside, she still had a spirit of love and tremendous strength.
When we talk about one-of-a-kind dogs, Iris is at the top of the list. She was a little firework, adored by her foster mom and placed into the perfect, loving family where she could be spoiled to make up for all that lost time of being on her own.
Although Iris' loss leaves a tremendous hole in our hearts, we know she had the best of everything in the time she was with her family. She got to go on trips, bark at the neighborhood dogs, hang out at the dog park, help her mom in the garden and eat some pretty awesome treats. Her mom and dad helped Iris cross many awesome things off her bucket list before crossing the bridge, surrounded by love.
Rest in peace, sweet Iris. 12/18/13
