That is Annie’s grave. She is still resting at what is now the Downtown Transit Center in Fort Collins.

  • Thank you so much for including Annie on your site. We are gearing up for our 12th annual Annie Walk and Pet fest on August 22, 2009. Can we link to this from our Facebook page?

    Sad what’s become of the grave I stumbled upon by accident while doing community service at Recycle Something. It was a dogs grave in the middle of a vacant lot at the time. I wish it still was.

    This is grand. My dog, also a mutt, looking very much like Annie came to me needing a home. She also needs to greet everyone first. I am also a retired railroader.

    Where exactly is the grave located at the transit center?

    Where exactly is the grave in relation to the transit center? I’ve been there several times but have never seen the grave site.
