Sierra picked me. I wasn’t looking for a puppy, but visiting a friend one day who had some pupplies looking for a home, I spied Sierra across the yard. She looked straight at me, with the cutest little raccoon eyes I’d ever seen. Her name came to me in that instant. And though I was not thinking I wanted a dog, I ended up taking her home with me that day, and she has been with me ever since. Over 16 years she has been my child, my best companion, my comfort and my playmate. When my husband passed away several years ago she was the rock I leaned against while I grieved his loss. Having to lay her to rest has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
She was always a good dog. Very social. Loved to play fetch and run in the woods. She got along with all the other dogs and had many people friends as well. These last months have been difficult for her and yet she kept strong and still wanted to be around us. I don’t know how I will be able to go on without her. She will be missed and life is just not going to be the same anymore without my little friend. RIP Sierra – 5/7/1996 – 7/23/2012
