YES SHE GOT IT

 

Sheba  was 3 years old on April 17, 2012.  She is a kisser and a hugger.   Sheba wags her short tail any time strangers come into the house, when a person talks to her and actually even if she just thinks you are going to say something to her.

 

GRFT brought Sheba into foster care knowing something was wrong as she had a huge know on her ribs.  She was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.  We researched any possibility to give her a longer quality of life, actually opting for surgery with a chance that it would give her a longer quality of life and actually it did give her a few extra months to be loved on. 

 

Sheba was able to go to Mountain Hounds the last of May 2012 where she ran in the Greyhound Hussel, met many new friends and was able to spend nights with each of her 3 adopted families.

 

Sheba lost her battle with cancer on June 7, 2012.  She was loved by all that met her and especially her three families.

SPICE

 

Spice is a beautiful young lady of 10 years old.  Yes, 10 but she neither looks nor acts like a Senior girl.

 

Spice is a very friendly vocal little girl. She loves to be right there with you. 

 

After first learning the kangaroo hop to get up the stairs, she’s learned to walk up and down the stairs.

 

She lets you know when she needs to go out by whining. 

 

She gets along great with the other greys, small dogs and having a toddler around doesn’t bother her (more treats!).  She eats fine, and doesn't gobble her food. 

 

She’s not keen on the vacuum, if it gets to close, she’ll just go in the other room and wait. 

 

I haven’t seen any aggression from her at all neither around food, toys or treats. 

 

Spice has not offered to get into anything therefore we let her stay out of the crate if we are just going to be gone a few hours.  She will crate when asked.
