CINCINNATI– Annie, an 8-year-old Golden Retriever, lost her right front leg to bone cancer last February.

The brave girl couldn’t wait to get back to her daily romps in the park with her brother BoBear and her owners Emmy O’Mahoney-Higgins and her husband Mark Higgins of Cincinnati.

And back she is.

“She’s able to hop about a mile on a very good day,” said Ms. O’Mahoney-Higgins. “Usually she does a bit of running around and then gets into her ride.“

Annie’s “ride” is a child’s jogging stroller that Mr. Higgins adapted for their dog, so she could continue to enjoy her walks with the family who loves her so much.

Barbara was born a pet lover. As a little girl she sneaked home a puppy from a litter across the street, named her Peppy, and fed her milk from her dolly’s baby bottle. Her parents could not say no, and Peppy became a member of the family for some 19 years.
