We got Sally in August of 1998.
She was the cutiest puppy I have ever seen. She was so smart, but really had a mind of her own. She slept with me every night, and kept close tabs on me at all times.
She had congestive heart disease, and about a week ago it began to affect her kidneys. We lost her yesterday, very suddenly. I guess her heart just couldn't cope anymore.
My husband and I are going to miss her more than we can say.
