Likes:
Amy loved her kong (better known as her "pacifier"), tummy rubs, and being near her mom.

Pet-Peeves:
She never liked being left alone & did not like it when her mom left. Amy did not like cats nor did she enjoy other dogs as much as she loved mom & our new grandson, Douggie.

Favorite Toy:
Amy likesd to play with stuffed, squeeky toys. her favorite was a green elephant. when she plays, she tossed the toy around like a puppy and pounced on it like a kitten.

Favorite Food:
Amy will eat any kind of dog food, but learned at the shelter to like hot dog treats. she will only eat if her mom is in the room with her.

Favorite Walk:
Amy loved car rides, and was a good little traveller, she would sit proudly on the seat like she was royalty. She enjoyed walks to the mailbox, tail would wag the entire on the entire walk.

Best Tricks:
Amy became totally deaf about a year ago. She could not hear but was always able to locate her mom, her pacifier or her toys in the house. She learned to watch carefully for hand gestures & her nose worked over-time!

Arrival Story:
Amy came from the Sacramento SPCA, her prior owner was deaf and when he became ill and could no longer take care of her. his relatives took her to a local shelter. She was a transfer from another shelter, came in with an acl tear, and had months of recovery. I was fortunate to have been able to foster her. Until she lost her hearing last year, she was another set of ears for me. It was very obvious she had helped her previous owner 'hear' and was willing and eager to do the same for me. In her last months, she could not hear and was often confused by the silence; however, she learned to watch me for hand signals and facial expressions and would leap with anticipation when she understood what I was 'saying'. Amy was not real big on going outside. She knew how to knock on the door to go out; however it was never in her plan to have a door shut her outside. On the few occasions that the door was shut; she never failed to tap with her nails to come back in. Sometimes, she would go outside and be ready to come back in so quickly, she resembled a 'tiddly wink'!!

Bio:
Amy passed away suddenly on June 27, 2008 at 18 years of age. She was a faithful and devoted family member for the 4 short years that we knew her and loved her. I will never forget Amy and know I will never find another dog who can ever fill the emptiness in my heart.
