Snapple- July 5, 2011

Snapple the Kayaking Redbone Coonhound

  On July 5th we lost Snapple to a condition which caused her to lose her sense of balance and her ability to walk. Below are some words from Snapple's guardian and best friend, Erika. We miss you Snapple...


  "Snapple" was not just any ordinary dog. She stared at the wall, whined for no reason at all, and had breath so bad you'd need to open a window. She hiked 4000 foot mountains, rode in kayaks, canoes and speed boats, jumped off docks and rock cliffs into the water and barked at every dog in sight. She came to meetings, camping trips, hotels, family events and vacations. She waited in the car while I shopped for groceries, and then stole them off the  kitchen counter when I got home. She gave everyone a chance and taught me to give everyone a chance. She never gave up. When I first met her, the staff at the Upper Valley Humane Society called her "The Regal Dog". She never stopped loving us; she was my best friend. - Erika Seitz
