It is with great sadness that Sheryl and I wish to inform you that our beloved Sake passed away in her sleep early this morning, Saturday, March 4, 2006. Sake has enriched our lives for the last 13 years, making the bad days good and the good days even better. We, as well as Sami, (Sake's constant companion for the last 10 years) will miss her. From the day we brought her home in Sheryl's lap riding in the back seat of my 1990 Explorer (As Sheryl says "... the last time I was able to hold her in my lap.") to her last few days, Sake was a precious member of our family.

The last year wasn't easy on Sake, her hips were arthritic, making it hard for her to walk and I know she missed the nightly walks, and the stomach tumor that couldn't be removed didn't make it any better. Sake never let on that she was in pain and dragged herself to the door when Sheryl or I came home from work or whenever we opened the front door, there she was with a look that said "Ok you're home, now where's my treat?".

Almost everyone in a 5 block radius of our house knew Sake from our daily walks, while she wasn't overly friendly with people, she always let the neighborhood kids pet her and sometimes depending on her mood she would play tag with them. Even the Hawthorne Police Canine Unit knew and respected Sake, because of her noble bearing and good manners. Visitors to our home could always count on Sake announcing their arrival and for some people she had a special bark. I always knew when the mailman was coming, as Sake had a bark that announced him/her before they even started up the driveway.

Sake will be missed by many and was loved by all she had contact with. She was a special dog, I've had dogs for most of my life but of all of them, Sake is the one I'll remember most fondly, she taught me as much as I taught her, and she taught Sami too. I remember the first time I told her to sit with Sami there, he looked at Sake sitting there quietly and plopped his butt down right beside her with a look that said "...Hey I can do that too". Sami learned his manners from Sake, who taught him who was allowed in the house and who wasn't, and what he had to do to stay on my good side.

There's so much more I could say about Nikita's warm Sake by Shogun, but for now all I can manage is goodbye baby, I'll miss you

 

Goodbye Baby
