It is with an overwhelming sadness that I tell you that Sheeba, who we "officially" adopted not even two weeks ago, left us for the Rainbow Bridge yesterday.

From the time I first met Sheeba in early July, I loved her. In her 140-ish days with us, she found endless bowls of food, soft dog beds and our bed to sleep on, and whatever medications were needed to relieve her aches, pains, and her tummy troubles.
While with us Sheeba forged canine and feline friendships, and the two of us formed what I can only describe as a true bond.💔.
I will miss her sticking her head in the shower and barking for me to hurry up and get her breakfast - the same bark I'd hear while fixing her dinner, and telling us it was time for bed, and the one telling me to ask one of the dogs to move so she could come and lay at my feet. More than anything I'll miss Sheeba always being underfoot, and following me every where, and waiting patiently and sometimes impatiently by the door for my return.
Our time with her, was of course way too short. But I have no regrets. I never do. It's always an honor get to know, love and care for a dog like Sheeba, who at more than 14 years old was a true treasure.
Rest now my sweet girl, Sheeba, and know that you were so loved and will be and are so missed.
