Sheba passed away at 11:00 this morning. She was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in December. She had been doing well up until a few days ago. She began eating less and less until she stopped eating anything at all. I had hoped we would make it to next week but this morning we knew it was time. Our vet was kind enough to come over to the house. We took Sheba for a short walk and then got her into bed and covered her in her Circle of Grey Healing Blanket.

Sheba was an amazing dog. She was so friendly... she didn't know the meaning of the word stranger. She was such a great ambassadog. She went to meet n greets, came with me on home visits, helped me look for lost dogs. When I took her to home visits I would ask the people what kind of dog they wanted. The response was always the same, they wanted a dog just like Sheba. She was a big leaner and had no issues climbing into anyones lap.

She was a total clown. When we first adopted her she learned to jump our fence to go visit with the neighbors. Her first visit to my in-laws she jumped on their kitchen table during breakfast. She ate the corner off my bridal shower cake. She was a big counter surfer and stole everything from loaves of bread to a steak. She was our boxers best friend. She was so gentle with our newborn. I am glad she got to meet the new baby but devastated that they won't be able to spend more time together.

She would have been 11 this summer. We only had her for two and a half short years. She was and always will be my heart dog.

I am SO very sorry to hear of your loss. What a beautiful girl. She looked and sounds like such a wonderful girl. Maybe there were too many babies that needed love, and so she was called to help out.


I am SO SORRY. Please know that she will ALWAYS be with you. God Speed, Sheba.

What beautiful pictures of a very special greyhound. She looked extremely happy and content and you can see that she knew she was loved and cared for. The time we are given with these loving creatures is far too short. A life time would not be enough. I hope your heartache will ease and you find comfort in the memories and photos.

Run free sweet Sheba. She'll be watching down on you and the baby from the bridge. She can run and run and run now over the bridge where "suitcase beds" abound!
