Gretta Gru McCorkle
January 1, 1753
Gretta Gru McCorkle was born in March of 2000, for the 1st year of her life she lived with someone else, someone who did not treat her well, when our daughter called to tell us she was being abused we told her to take custody of her (the owner no longer wanted her) and we would find her a home. Well we did ours, from the minute she raised her paw and shook hands with her daddy our hearts were taken. It took some time for her not to be scared of everything, but we just loved her through it. She became our Queen Bee, she moved with us from Kansas City to Hutchinson Kansas, then a year and half ago to San Antonio, TX, she has been there for nearly every adventure we have been on. She was not a barker, unless of course she heard something that may seems like a threat, but she would talk to us just like she was human, not in a barking voice but a human sounding voice, I know crazy but we knew exactly what she was saying. Gretta loved her treats, and we had to give her one every time we came in the door, I think as penance for leavingJ Her hearing was impeccable (when it was convenient for her) and she knew the sound of our cars and was always at the door with her nose to the crack of the door waiting for it to open. The young labs we have just stood back and let her take the lead for they knew she ALWAYS got her way. Our life is so much richer for having been Gretta’s mom and dad, our hearts are so heavy, and it is still hard to believe she is gone our home is so quiet even though we have 4 other furbabies. We did not realize how huge her presence was until she was no longer there, and we know life will never be the same.
We love you Gretta Gru, always and forever until we meet again.
