Likes: Food, walks on the beach, food, playing ball, food, hide and go seek, food, short rides in car, food, shredding stuffies and did I say food?
Pet-Peeves: Grooming and vet visits. Not getting everything she wants to eat like treats or people food. NOT getting her own way.
Favorite Toy: Tennis ball (s) she has dozens. Squeaky stuffies and playing with mommy & daddy.She thinks everything in the house belongs to her.
Favorite Food: She is on a strict low fat diet for a pancreatic condition. She loves chicken and her new low beef jerky chews and Blue Bakery Peanut Butter cookies.
Favorite Walk: To the kitchen, a million times a day if food is involved & Carmel Beach.
Best Tricks: Total control of mommy & daddy. She also kicks the ball on command, shakes hands, speaks, fetches, sits, begs, goes down, kisses & will bring us a specific toy when she is told.
Arrival Story: I got her in Modesto. It was so hot that I didn't think she'd survive the trip. She was like a limp noodle. Kept dipping my fingers in the ice chest to wet her mouth. Once we got home I sat her down on the grass in the backyard. She saw her new daddy lying on the lawn and immediately runs toward him bouncing and growling then jumped on him to play. I guess she knew this was the place for her and we already loved her.
Bio: Sassy has several medical conditions. Allergies, Cushings Disease, pancreaitis and now she may have to have a growth removed from her lower eye lid because it may be damaging her retina or causing an aye ulcer. Sassy has had to fight for nearly every year of her life. She is a strong willed little girl that loves life. She is so happy and has made our lives so full. I can't imagine life without her nor do I ever want to. This baby loves food but due to her illnesses I cook all of her meals with healthy food to control her pancreatic levels which seems to have been working very well. You would never know by her sweet disposition and bouncy little walk and wiggle that she has life threatening illnesses. She is a fighter. She gets that from her mommy! She has taught me a very important lesson. Live every day to the fullest and make every moment count. Live each day with your furbabies as if it were the last day. Also share yourself with others who need your help and support. There's more than enough love for everyone and then some.
It's only been 5 1/2 months since you left us but it's seems like a lifetime to me and mommy. Every night me and mommy go into our room and lay on the bed and talk and cry about you not being here. She always shuts the door so my brothers and sister can't come in because it's our special time. I get tummy rubs, pupperoni and Meaty Sticks.But daddy, it's just not the same without you. I miss you so much daddy. Please come get me and mommy. Please....... I LOVE YOU!!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Daddy took me to the vet so the technician could shave the inside of my ear flaps and get a rabies shot. Daddy has never taken me before. Anyway there was a little fluffy doggy that was only about 6 inches tall there and I went after it growling but daddy had my leash and pulled me back. When he told mommy she got really mad at me. I have never ever done anything like that before. I am always the perfect girl at the vet and groomer. I'm always the alpha no matter where we are but I have never been vicious. The vet seems to think I was either protecting daddy because mommy is the one that always takes care of this stuff or because I am getting old and I wasn't feeling good.
Mommy is so ashamed of me. I bet she won't even give me a cookie tonight or a treat. The first thing she did was call the vet to make sure the little dog was okay and they said I wasn't even close enough to touch the little pup. I have a really bad feeling about this one. Mommy wouldn't even give me a kiss when me & daddy left to go home.
I bark at kitties when I see them in our backyard but have never even chased them or go near them. I hope mommy forgives me soon but I bet she doesn't. I have a feeling I won't be allowed to sleep on her pillow tonight either. She doesn't like bullies and she told daddy I was a smart a@@ bully today.
Mommy just spoke to daddy while he was at the Pulmonary Specialist office. They had taken several biopsies with brushes from the lung where the "shadow" was getting larger. We had understood that no cancer was present only to find out they didn't test the node that has slightly grown. Either daddy got it wrong or they are running us in circles. Since they were in there already taking pieces to test why didn't they test that? All we know now if the shadow looking thing is either scar tissue or plaque on his lung which there is nothing to help that. Mommy will go with him to the oncologist appt next week and ask about everything. Just when things seem to get better they throw the gears into reverse again. Daddy does soak up much they tell him since the chemo but the doctors know this and usually call mommy. So frustrated I could just scream. The oncologist did admit the radiologist screwed up so he is the first one on moms list. She says Californians are too greedy and sue others just for extra money but now mommy says she will sue the pants off them if his life is cut short because of their blunderers errors. She wants them to lose their license if they did do things wrong so they can't do it again. I'm going to go hide for awhile because mommy has got that look she gets right before she blows.
