was so little when she came to us. We used a board as a ramp so that she
could get up on the bed. She was so stubborn, that she quickly learned to do
it herself. She saved my dog Rocky's life. He fell into the pool one day and
she barked until someone paid attention to her. My dog Rocky had fallen in
the water and was hanging onto the pool cover!
She always loved cheese, just like me and she was cuter than any
stuffed animal I've every seen. She always waited at the door for us
to come home and would greet us with lots of kisses. She was gentle
with my two-year-old and always knew where the party was.
August third, 2002, we were having a party and both of my dogs were gated
upstairs so that they wouldn't escape. They were comfortable with food,
water and air conditioning. Sable kept barking, and I would throw them up
treats for some temporary quiet time. I remember being busy with the guests
arriving and not hearing her high pitched bark anymore…..I thought, "Good,
they went to sleep".
A short while later, I went up to let them out and she didn't come to the
gate. Right away, I knew that something was terribly wrong….and there she
was, lying on my son's bedroom floor. Our lives will never be the same. We
love you and miss you so much, Sable. You will always be in our hearts…and
we'll see you again one day.
Lisa, MaryAnn, Robert, Adam, and Rocky
