"Ruff" day...


Many of you know of my mom's dog, Sasha. Today was a hard day. We had to make a tough decision to put Sasha to sleep.... It was mostly mom's decision since Sasha has been her companion for the past 16 years.... I supported her all the way.

Sasha started out as an impulse buy from a pet store when I was 16. I moved out and Sasha stayed with my mom.

I just hope that she knows we took the best care of her that we could and I hope that she had a happy life! We sure enjoyed having her around. Watching her dig with a cast when she had a broken leg as a puppy (chasing a kitty), dancing around on her hind legs for treats and piddling on the floor when we came home.

Sasha was a great dog, a good companion for my mom over the years and she will be missed greatly.
