Shnuff: The Measure Of All Things Good
“Noo EEE! Noo EEE!” from local neighborhood kids, Shnuffy was everything good and fun. For us, she was our definition of LOVE.
Newly married and with a new home, we decided to adopt a puppy. Little did we know that our “family” would become a “farm-ily.” And Shnuffy (shnoo-fee) would make it so.
We wanted a mellow dog so we chose the puppy that seemed the most ‘laid back’. It was little Shnuff cowering in the corner of the cage. We soon learned that her calmness was due to kennel cough and after a series of antibiotics became a very crazy little puppy!
At the end, she stumbled to her feet when she heard Derek’s voice. Tried with all her might to stand even when her legs would not support her. She was a painfully beautiful gift of love that sustained our life then and even now.
Shnuffy remains the measure of all things good. “I love you a million Shnuffys!”
