Arrival Story:
Sarah came to live with us when we lived in Las Vegas. She was a terrier through and through. A member of our house told me that he was expecting a puppy, not a " Little wild Indian". Sarah is 14 years old and has all the problems of a dog her age. She is completly blind and she just had surgery to remove a large tumor. She is still happy, tries to play with her ball but Froggy takes it away from her. She still lets Froggy know that she is still the Queen Bee by kicking his butt at least once a month. First she has to get ahold of him. She is very sweet now and I am now her "Seeing eye person" when we go for walks. Her ears still work great. I find myself spending lots of time with her because I know she is near the end of her life. I am very grateful for these wonderful 14 years she has been in our life.

Our Sweet Sara Passed away July 1, 2005. She gave us 15 years of love, play, and trouble. We would not change a thing.

We are facing the decision that every dog owner hates. Sara's health is declining very quickly. We have discussed if it is time for us to put her to sleep. This is a tough one. As soon as we decide that it might be time, she bounces back for a few days. I do know that at times she is very unconfortable. Two nights ago I heard her crying softly in the night and it broke my heard. Taking care of her health problems is like fighting a fire. You beat it back in one spot and it pops up some where else. I do know she has had a really good life. She has been there and done that!


A little older

Sara is a little older and a little slower but she met what must be the dumbest possum in the world last week. It was night time and she had sneeked into the back yard while we were not watching. I heard a very loud noise ran out to check and she had captured an adult possom. I still can not believe that a possum
could be that slow and dumb to allow a dog as old as Sara to catch it.
Lucky for the possum that she is so old or it would not have lived to tell the tale.

Sara is old but she is still 100% Terrier


Getting Older

Getting old is hard work. In addition to not being able to see, I am now have trouble hearing. I can hear my Daddy calling me if he is close by but I can not longer tell where the sound is comming from. My world was already very dark but now it is getting much too quiet. My Daddy does things to stimulate me as much as possable but I get tired so fast. Some times I get really lonely and cry softly. When my Papa hears it he come to confort me until I feel better. When I walk around my house I keep bumping into thing and this makes me very unhappy, so I stay in my little bed more and more. I still want to play with my little brat of a brouther Froggy but sometimes it is too much for me. My Daddy tries very hard to make me feel better. As a Fox Terrier, no one can say I haven't lived life to the fullest. I have traveled to a lot of the US, I have been to Italy and got to pee all over Rome. A lot of Roma dogs knew I had been there.

I also had eight beautiful babies and know when my time is up I will live on in my children and their children. Living is lots of fun and I have no regrets for my my 15 wonderful years.

My story might sound sad, but if you think about it I really have had a wonderful life. Even though I am very old, I can look back knowing that this Terrier did it all and wouldn't change anything.
