She loves being around me the most. She's always so happy when I come walking out the door to the back yard, or when I came in the room at night, she use to cuddle up right next to me, and I held her, and she seemed to be the happiest dog on earth.
Doll face, pretty
Lassie never really played with any toys, but when she was a puppy one of those things that looks like it'd go on a toliet plunger.
She loooooved the doggie treats I use to make.
She liked going anywhere as long as I was right by her side.
She loved giving hugs, she'd sit, then I'd neal down and she'd put her arms around me and lay her head on my shoulder
Mom was picking up my older brother from school when he was like 5 or something. They saw Lassie, and the guy was asking people if they wanted one her, so Matthew said "I want that dog!" to Mom, and if we hadn't gotten her she would have been put to sleep, because the pound truck was almost there to pick her up.
Lassie's been ours since I was 2, our first dog. We thought she was a purebred lab, untill she got big, we know she was deffinatly a mix, but what that mix is we'll never know. I was afraid of dogs untill I was about 6ish, but Lassie showed me that there's nothing to be afraid about with her and I slowly started trusting them, and everyone thought I'd never like dogs. But here I am couldn't 've loved Lassie anymore. We were lucky to have her as long as she as we did, she wasn't exactly the soundest dog. She always slept right next to me with either my arms around her, or her paws around me. Me and Lassie were more on a best-friend level relationship, we always wanted to be with each other, and we always seem to make each other happy.
I remember when I was 8 years old Dad had fallen asleep reading to me, and I was still awake and I wanted to see if I could carrier Lassie over Dad without falling, back then I was short and super skinny. Dad woke up and started freaking, but Lassie stayed completly calm.
Lassie did agility(2nd place, oldest dog at 10 years at the 4-h fair, yea yea, big deal, but I trained her all alone at home), carting, obedience(4th place, give her a break it was her first show and hot bloons came like 30 ft above us when I got her outa the van). Lassie hated swimming, she'd go as far as putting her paws in, SOMETIMES, but rarly that even.
The night mare started April of 2005. We had to wait a long time have a big bump from Lassie 'cause the surgery was almost $1000, so we had to save it up. We finally did early April, it took about two weeks to get the results back. It was a very fast spreading deadly cancer. The Dr. said he tried to get all of it, but it had a lot of feelers. She was old anyways, he didn't know if she'd die for the cancer or old age. After about two months, I shurgged it off and thought my Lassie could never die. I checked her daily to see if any other bumps appeared, none did. She went partially blind. And a few weeks before she kept me up all night whinning her head off, we took her to the vet the next day, we shrugged it off as her athirts and sent her home. August 23rd, 2005. Lassie smelt bad, I thought she had just gotten into something so I sent her into the basement as it was way to late to give her a bath(she barked well taking baths). Next morning I got her imdiatly, totally forgot about the bath, and I thought she was acting weird, because normally she'd run right up the stares, but I had to carry her up, I thought "Okay, it's just the arthirts". She went down hill more and more. I called the vet around 12PM because she was walking funny. Our regular vet wasn't in, and the alternative vet wasn't in for another hour, so I waited by her side. The time came and I carried Lassie to the van, we went the 1/2 mile down the road. He told us she was dying. So we took her back home because we knew she would want to stay with us untill she died, and she wasn't in any pain. I stayed with untill 5:06PM the time she died.
Forever on my mind...
Lassie has gone to heaven as of August 24, 2005. She will be missed dearly
...Forever in my heart.
I could cry a thousand tears and would still not express how I feel about her being gone.
If it weren't for you Lassie I probably wouldn't love dogs as much as I do today!
