Brandi the Cute Little Puppy Dog, 2009-2016

To all of the fans of Brandi the Cute Little Puppy Dog, it is with heavy heart that I announce the untimely death of our sweet little doggie. She will be sadly missed by her human family: me (Karen), Derek, Kalene, and Megan. She will be missed, (but without the sadness) by our two cats, Zinger and The Doctor.

 If dogs and cats go to Heaven when they die (a theological question neither asked nor answered in the Scriptures), she may be reunited with her “brother from another mother” Jethro, who was born in our wonderfully weird household when Brandi was just a puppy of about five months old. Brandi and Jethro were best buds until Jethro’s untimely death by road kill in 2011.

Brandi, as you may recall, was the author of a series of cute little articles about her cute little self. Several of these were published on the Triond website “The Real Owner” and later republished on this blog “Karen's Critters.” Brandi did not have very good spelling for a dog, and her grammar was distinctively juvenile, but she really was cute, so I just posted her stories ‘as is’ and it became part of her charm.

Read stories by and about Brandi in this blog.  I have set up quick links to three posts:

Brandi in "No Ways! Not Another Doggy Sweater!"

In addition to her busy writing career and her role as our wireless doorbell (a role for which she was eminently overqualified and carried out with overexuberance), Brandi was well known by anyone who would listen to my stories as a hero for scaring off a would-be intruder in the wee hours of the morning, helping the police to catch up with the suspect of several break-ins in our neighbourhood.You can read this story at Okay, the dog can stay!
Brandi the Cute Little Puppy Dog. RIP We love you!
