   Leave a bone for Sheba (In Memory)


Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Sun Sign:
Rainbow Bridge
Quick Bio:

May 17th 1990

She liked to run--she could really sprint! She liked to please us.

She didn't like strangers coming into the yard. She would circle them like a shark and would not let them pet her.

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Food:
Steak or chicken

Favorite Walk:
She loved to accompany me on my horse, down the road, through the woods to a nearby lake. She always stayed close and would not run too far ahead.

Best Tricks:
Sit up; shake hands (first one, then the other paw); play dead; leave it.

Arrival Story:
We looked for an Airedale for many years, but no one in our area was raising any. Finally, there was an ad in the paper. We visited the breeder (a good one) and saw both parents, who were both very friendly. We sat down on the ground and let the puppies run around us. The one that stayed closest to us is the one we took. EPILOGUE: After Sheba went to the Rainbow Bridge (kidney failure) we came back to the breeder when she had her next litter of puppies. Sheba's mother was still there (she was about 12 years old but retired from breeding). She was still friendly and came to me and I told her what a wonderful, beautiful and smart girl her daughter had been. I believe she understood.

Sheba was very smart. She obeyed instantly (which is rare for an Airedale). Even if she was in the middle of running or chasing something, if I called her she stopped on a dime and returned to me. I took her to beginning obedience and the instructor complemented us that she listened so well. One requirement was for the dog to sit facing the handler and look into the eyes of the handler when the handler said, "Look at me." Sheba always looked into my eyes (with that bubbly, clownish, eye-twinkling look that all Airedales have), and while she looked at me she would do it while sitting up. We were always the center of attention when the class would do that exercise. Our older dog, Pharaoh, became Sheba's "uncle". He would roughhouse with her and she loved it. The rougher the better. Pharaoh, who was much bigger than her, would lie on his back and Sheba would dive on top of him. He'd kick her off and she would dive right back. He would kick her up in the air. It always reminded me of the circus performer who laid on his back with his legs up in the air and spun a barrel with his feet. People driving by would laugh because it looked like the little dog was overpowering the big dog. (Please check out Pharaoh's page for more pics of Sheba). Sheba was a great watchdog, intuitive, smart, well-mannered and a wonderful friend. She followed Pharaoh to the Rainbow Bridge only six months after he passed. After all these years, I still miss her very much. "SHEBA OF WHISPERING TREES" -- May 17, 1990 - July 15, 1997.
