Etta – Mae Farquhar (1997−2010)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Etta-Mae on June 28, 2010. Etta was rescued by Bobby Farquhar and Anna McGibbon when she was 2 years old from Kim Arthur DVM. Etta had been abandoned by her former owners at Dr Arthur’s clinic, fortunately Dr Arthur kept her at the clinic for almost 2 years until Bobby and Anna stepped up and adopted Etta in 2000.
Life was an exciting experience with Etta, unfortunately, from the onset she suffered with some health problems and those were exacerbated by some behavioural issues which she had developed due to a lack of early socialization with dogs while waiting to be adopted.
Fortunately, Etta struck gold insofar as to her 2 new wonderful Moms, they loved her at once and she returned every ounce of the love she received. However, in order to be proactive both Bobby and Anna immediately contacted The Original Dog House Inc. and enlisted David’s help to rehabilitate Etta from her aggressive behaviour with dogs.
Within a short time under David’s watchful eye, Etta’s self confidence started to develop and soon thereafter David integrated her into his daycare program. Etta’s rehab was a complete success; she enjoyed the company of dogs and was taught how to socialize and play safely. Etta had a full and happy life with her family and friends, she leaves behind her Mom Anna and her 4 legged sister Tippy.
Rest in Peace girl under the watchful eye of your Mom Bobby.
You will always be in our memories and hearts.
