From her mom, Keri:
I just wanted to let you know Vanessa passed away yesterday. It’s been one of the hardest things our family has gone through. We LOVED her so much! I can’t thank you enough for trusting us 15 years ago and letting us become her family. She has brought us years and years of joy, love and friendship. She passed away surrounded by all of us. I hope we were able to bring her as much joy as she has all of us. I just thought you would want to know. Thank you for entrusting her to us. We loved her so very much. I wish we could have had more years with her. 😢
From her human sister:
Our sweet beautiful princess Vanessa. We couldn’t have been blessed with a better first family dog. You were there by our side as we grew up, you brought our family closer together, you showed us the impact dogs have on our lives, and no matter the mistakes we made through out our lives you loved us no matter what. 14 years doesn’t feel long enough to have spent with you, but I know in those 14 years memories were made, laughs were shared, and you brought us happiness even on our worst days. You’ll forever have a special place in our heart and I can’t wait to be with you again someday pushing you for a walk in that stroller.
