Nittany came to us in the spring of 2004 when she was 8 years young, following more than a year in her foster home. We soon learned that she was talented in many ways—she could catch like Johnny Bench and was a true chicken connoisseur. Bob Vila would admire her conversion of our walk-in closet into her own private fort. She slept, sat, and reclined wherever she wanted. We soon came to know the recliner was her property.
Nitty was the most gentle of souls and was most content when all pack members were home for the day. Although she loved and enjoyed all of these things, her very favorite was a long, leisurely walk in the park with us. On January 29th, 2008, Nittany passed peacefully with her family at her side. The Nitt was well loved and is sorely missed.
It was our pleasure and gift to have known and loved this wonderful beagle girl. We thank the BONES volunteers who matched us up. We are comforted to know that Nittany joins our earlier pets—Niki, Fonti, Sam, Bellie, Sheffield, Cinderella, Bianca, Katie, and Little Debbie–in games, play, and just plain old fun in the Land of the Rainbow Bridge. We are comforted to know that we will once again meet when the time is right.
