When my husband and I finished college and started working long days, our
dog Bauer, was home all day alone with only our cat, Shadow for company.
We would come home at night and Bauer would greet us and be so incredibly
wound up, so we thought maybe we should get him a canine friend. We
decided to go to the Humane Society to just have a look! While
there we met Princess (as she was already named), she was very docile and
sweet for such a big dog. So we gathered the info the Humane Society
had on her, set up an appointment to bring Bauer back to meet her and
then went home to tell Bauer the good news! We came back to the Humane
Society on Monday (we had been there on Saturday) to do the introductions
and hopefully adopt the dog we had picked out. Bauer and
Princess (Sierra - we had to rename her- Princess just didn't fit) liked
each other, so she came home with us that night!
Sierra and Bauer became very good friends. Sierra also became good
friends with our cats (actually she loves them very much although- I can't
say the feeling is mutual from the cats' point of view), too.
One of the many things Sierra loved to do was to go places with us.
Anywhere we were going she wanted to go. Just say the "g word and she was
ready to GO!!! Along with Bauer, Sierra traveled all over the U.S.
with us. She had many adventures traveling on vacations to Virginia,
WA DC and also to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Sierra loved to ride in
the car with her head sticking out the window. She looked so proud and
happy! She also loved to go to the dog park. She liked to meet
the other dogs but especially loved to run after her ball. She loved to run,
swim and have a good time! We had so many wonderful adventures with Sierra
over the years she was with us. Too many to list!
All in all we found a wonderful friend for Bauer and a very loving companion
for us. Thus it is with a very heavy and sad heart that this
is written to say our Sierra has gone to be an Angel. She had a very
fast and agressive bout with liver cancer. She was taken from us way too
Sierra, we will love you and remember you forever!!! Our very special
Rooo Rooo girl Our special angel with a heart of gold...a true loyal friend
through and through!!
Mommy and Daddy miss you and love you, Sierra!!!
