February 28th 1996
Belly rubs, back rubs
Having her nails trimmed
In the Back Yard
She used to sit up and beg, but we stopped her from doing that after her back surgery
Sheba was barely weaned from her mama when a man who worked with my husband was planning to take her out in the country and dump her on the highway. Thank God my husband Arthur stopped by his house on the Easter Sunday, April 7, 1996. I think he went over there to help him work on his car. Sheba was left outside in a dark, damp cold shed with no water or food all by herself. The guy took Arthur out to look at her. Arthur immediately scooped her up and brought her back inside with him. He put her on the floor so she could walk around, but when she got too close to the guy's Pomeranian that creep kicked her across the room. Well...Arthur said he picked her up and immediately left. He called me on the way home to let me know he was bringing home a puppy. She was shaking and so scared when she was placed in my arms. I pampered her all afternoon. Before you know it she was running all over the house.
We kept her in a big lawn mower box at night with half the cover removed. Her bed was up under the part with the cover still attached so it would be free of drafts. She never messed in her box, but would surely bark to go outside. She trained herself. Sheba is the first dog I ever had who never had an accident in the house.
Sheba is a lucky dog...she ruptured a disc and had it removed from her back in April 2003. It was scary there for awhile, but she recovered and is still going strong except she is still on steroids for allergies. She also has dry eye in her left eye and requires constant medication three times a day.
Sheba loves everyone. She is a sweet girl with a wonderful disposition. She loves all other dogs and enjoys greeting everyone who comes to the house.
UPDATE: My fursis Miracle was diagnosed with AIHA in August 2008 and it quickly took her away from us. It stands for Auto Immune Hemolytic Anemia. It is a serious and often fatal blood disease in which the body attacks its own red blood cells. Pawlease consider donating just a dollar to help find a cure for this horrific disease. To do so just visit another fur who lost her life to AIHA long before we knew what it was. Her name is Mica and she is helping find a cure: mica-the wonderpup. Do it for Miracle! We love her and miss her so much. Bless you Miracle.
I am SAD to report Sheba went to Rainbow Bridge on March 11, 2009 at approx. 4:00 p.m. CST, after fighting a very bad infection for four days. We're not sure if it was because of the stuffed toy she ingested on March 3rd or something else, but it hurts and I'm lost without my baby. She was such a sweetheart. I love you and miss you Sheba. Love, Mom

Mama wrote me a letter today and this is what she had to say:
My sweet pretty girl you are always on my mind. There is not a day goes by that I don't think of you and Spike. As I sit here tonight thinking of what I was doing four years ago it makes me tear all up again despite trying to only remember the wonderful years we had together. I cried myself to sleep that night after losing you. There wasn't anything that could console me. I felt I'd failed you, but now know nothing could have saved you from that nasty cancer. I think Spike slept in his regular place at the foot of the bed while your daddy was up all night in there watching TV. So many things have changed in four years. Spike joined you just seven months later...another victim of that dreadful disease!! My heart was broken in more pieces. It took me forever to begin to function again. I like to picture in my mind you and Spike happily romping around the Rainbow Bridge together again as you'd always been on Earth from the day your daddy brought him to the house. The two of you were inseparable and I'm sure that's how it is at the Bridge. Bella and Scooter are still full of energy and doing well. Jiffy and Rosie are two of the most busiest little doggies ever. They go non-stop almost all day long while Bella and Scooter nap a lot more.
I feel as if my whole family is gone now since your daddy left us in January to join you up there. I know you were the first to greet him as he stepped over the Bridge just as you always greeted him at the back door when I'd tell you "Daddy's home." Those were the best times seeing how excited you and Spike would get to see him walk through the back door. You know I can picture exactly how you looked when you saw him headed in your direction up there. I just bet he's giving you those belly rubs you always loved along with his massages. He took such great care of you while you were recovering from back surgery while I was at work. If not for him it probably would have taken you much longer to recover and gain all your strength back in those little short legs. Many days I wish it were me with you again, but your daddy beat me to it. My mind keeps going back to the days when we were a happy family. If only we could choose a date in time then make it stand still forever. Mine would be in 2000 when Spike turned one year old and you were four and still full of so much energy. That's when we had some of the best times. I will always love you Sheba!! I'm missing you, Spike and your daddy more every day. I wish I could give you all a big hug right now. Bella, Scooter, Jiffy and Rosie will continue to help me heal as they've been by my side constantly since your daddy joined you in January. I'll keep moving forward, but I will never ever forget you my sweet pretty girl. You are forever in my heart.

I celebrated my barkday with my daddy this year. He came here on January 29th and Spike helped him transition from the earth to this beautiful place. Mama knows that cuz he was calling Spike's name the night he left her. Our mama is sad, oh so sad that he is gone, but he's hugging and rubbing on me and Spike once again. He always gave me the best butt scrubbies of all times. And he massaged my legs every day for quite a few months in 2003 to help me heal up faster from my ruptured disc. If only mama could see how happy we are along with Miracle, Peppy, and Cricket. Our daddy rescued me in 1996 on Easter Sunday, then was responsible fur getting Spike to mama in December 1999. Tonight we all fly down to sprinkle lots of angel dust on mama and the Furtastic Four who keep her busy every day. That's a good thing she's got all them cuz it's helping her get through the long days and extra long nights.

OMD...we're all scrambling around helping Ernie George prepare fur Izzy's big welcome at the Bridge in less than an hour. Ever since my mom learned about Izzy she's been all leaky eyed thinking about how sad Izzy's mama & papa are right now having to help Izzy on her journey home. My mom knows that pain all too well cuz sometimes I see her crying when she thinks about me & Spike. Now she is crying buckets again, but I've got to say Have no fear Izzy will be welcomed with many open paws very soon. Sending lots of hugs and love to her pawrents as they mourn her passing on Earth.
