Darlyn was placed in a home as a puppy, but returned to her breeder at around six months old. She came to live with us when she was about two. She had several quirks and had to be handled with kid gloves, but she loved our family and was intensely loyal and protective. She is the mother of our Ellie and grandmother of Bobbie Sue. Several weeks after Tyson left us, Darlyn suffered an apparent stroke. Though it seemed that only motor skills were somewhat affected, three days after the stroke she went to sleep and never woke up. Tyson and Darlyn were kennel mates. We wonder if she just missed him too much.
