Waidin's Encore (Cora) CGC CD 1997-2009
It is with great sorrow that I post this.... we lost our Cora on Tuesday, August 4, 2009. She was our very first Newf.. she was everything to me... she was a wonderful companion and friend. She was a wonderferful therapy dog...she worked well with children... they responded to her in amazing ways. She despised being brushed....yet she'd let children residing in our local battered women's shelter brush her without complaint. She was the first one that a little girl spoke to after untold horrors.. her social worker told me she hadn't spoken in 3 weeks... and Cora broke through that barrier.
She was the calming influence on all the rescues that came through our door. She took a backseat to them all... allowing us to give our attentions to them because they needed it. Yet she'd stick her nose under our hands when she needed some las much loving.
She was simply, a good sweet girl... not a fancy show dog... she didn't like the water too much. She had her CD.. which for those of you who know us meant as much as any best in show! She was, is and will always be "my puppy".
I thank all of those who have been in touch with me on Facebook... and I am posting here to reach any friends with whom I've not been in touch with.
Godspeed my sweet Cora.... we love you.
