Sometimes things are just meant to happen. So it was, with Annie II coming to live with me all the way from KY to MN. My husband, Randy, introduced me to Airedales within weeks of our marriage, and during our 40 years together we raised three Airedales from pups, and adopted two seniors from ATRA. Sadly, our Annie died in December, and in May, my dear Randy died, after a very long illness. It was so quiet and empty here—until the phone rang.
