Sheba came to us via a newspaper ad after I had bought my first house
back in 1998. I was planning to wait until spring or summer that year
to get a dog, but it didn’t work out that way. I went to see her at
her first home (not much of home) and immediately fell in love with her.
I brought her home the next day and we started our life together. She
was the sweetest gentlest dog you could ever ask for. Sheba had her
quirks, but then most animals do and we loved every single one of them.
When Sheba was diagnosed with cancer in September of this year our vet told
us she didn’t have much time left and there wasn’t anything we could do for
her. She really wasn’t any different from the dog we had loved for
almost 10 years. The weekend after she was diagnosed we took Sheba and
her sister Chloe to the ocean for the weekend. The dogs had the best
day of their life, we did too! They ran on the beach and played in the
waves. We were suppose to be at the ocean for 3 days, but Saturday
morning Sheba wasn’t doing well and we decided to pack up the car and head
home so that we could be with our vets instead of ending up at the ER.
We spent the last hour of Sheba’s life with her, all of us on the floor at
the vets just loving each other. I held her while she took her last
breath and kept holding her, I didn’t want to let her go. We did let
her go and now she is out running around with all her other dog friends!
We miss you Sheba and we will love you always!
