Tuaca came into our lives as an adopted “rescue” 8 years ago.  It quickly became evident, that he had chosen us  and we were the fortunate ones to be “rescued”. He was a terrific and watchful brother to his Coton brother Eli and poodle girls BonBon and Diva. Tuaca enjoyed visiting the beach (almost daily) where he earned the nickname Digger for all the digging of trenches he would do. Typically, while carrying some sort of treasure such as a giant stick or rock. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful or well-behaved German Shepard – Tuaca was truly special and touched many peoples lives.  The hardest decision is when to say goodbye, but with the help of Dr. Annie and her compassionate staff, we made the dreaded appointment to have it done at home and Tuaca went to the beach that morning for one last time. This was the best possible way for us to honor Tuaca, it was a beautiful day, the backdoor was open and he could hear the waterfall and he was laying with his head in his dad’s lap on a favorite blanket. 

Dr. Annie was so sweet with Tuaca and he was gone quickly and quietly. I’m always thankful for Dr. Annie’s calm manner and her help with our remaining dogs and even though it still brings tears to my eyes – I know we did the right thing at the right time. It’s the least we can do for a beloved pet who brought such joy to our lives. I would encourage anyone that is facing the difficult decision of pet euthanasia, to speak with Dr. Annie and read the helpful hints on her website. Thank you again Dr. Annie for your compassion and dedication.
