S: Sashi, a remembrance of a dog who loved kittens, kids and everyone she met

Sashi and a foster kitten about a year ago. In her later years, she wore diapers due to incontinence.

Sashi sharing her bed with a foster kitten. In the later years of her life, she wore diapers due to a leaky bladder.A few days ago, my dog Sashi passed on. She was having constant seizures from a brain tumor. My husband and I adopted her about six years ago, when she was probably around seven years old. She already had a little gray hair but not nearly as much as she had when she passed.

An earlier moment of Sashi cuddling with a foster kitten. So many loved her.

An earlier picture of Sashi with a foster kitten. So many loved her.She was the most gentle soul who had a ferocious sounding bark, making her a good watch dog and a good family dog. She loved our cats and was gentle with our foster kittens. The only time she ever snarled was when another animal tried to get between her and her food, but she never did more than growl and snap.

On walks by the park she was always up for a good pet from a neighbor kid excited to see a dog. She had a happy prancing gate that made everyone smile.

Here’s a video of her playing with my cat Lux when Lux was still a kitten.

Rest in peace, Sashi. You will always be in our hearts.

  1. Sashi sounds like a wonderful doggie, and she was very lucky to end up with you as a parent. Older animals often have a great deal of difficulty finding a good home. Losing a pet can be so difficult, especially when children are involved, but there are places that can help offer you comfort. Rainbow Bridge is one of them. I know she’s left paw prints on your heart forever, and she’s grateful for the love and kindness you gave her.
