Greta

~Another Goodbye

I wanted to convey a message from my mom, Sandie, about the passing of her sweet Greta (Dusty x Gracie 2009).  On Tuesday evening, Greta passed peacefully in her sleep in her favorite bed.  Over the past twelve years, Greta (and her Vizsla sister Henna) enjoyed a wonderful Weim life, including long walks, warm beds, homemade dog food, and most importantly unconditional love from their “mama.”  Greta has lived in Southern California, Idaho, and now Rosarito, Mexico and has been a wonderful foster sister to my mom’s many rescue dogs and a half sister to my own Weims, Lola (Deli x Dash 2003—passed in 2016), Byron (Dusty x Stormy 2007—passed in 2015) and Beatrix (Mouse x Stackhouse 2016).  My mom would always call Greta her shadow, since she always followed her around the house, from room to room, including the bathroom!  She would always seek out a way to be touching my mom in some way. Greta was an anomaly as far as Weims are concerned.  From the day my mom brought her home, she was rarely destructive, rarely barked, was very calm, had an even temperament, and rarely “broke the rules.” Literally one in a million!
My mom is truly thankful for the twelve years she had with Greta and says thank you for allowing her to be Greta’s mama. She will miss her dearly. Greta is pictured below on the left next to Beatrix. ~ Carlin Stein
