One year ago today, we helped our golden retriever Sheba to the Rainbow Bridge after she fought cancer for two years. Today I want to share some of my favorite photos of her – they’re not all the best quality or composed photos, but each one tells a little about her and her life with us. I don’t have access to a lot of photos from her middle years – the external hard drive I had copied many to crashed and I’m not sure it can be fixed. Thank goodness for this blog, because I certainly have plenty of photos of her from her last few years since I started the blog in 2012; too many to go through them all!
Here is Sheba at just under 5 months old with her sibling and littermate, Moses, and our Cricket, who was just a couple of months older than the goldens.
Sheba somehow managed to look pretty with her golden locks even when her paws were all muddy (and she loved to get muddy!).
This photo is especially precious because here Sheba is in between her two brothers who went to the Bridge before her – Moses, and our beagle, Kobi. I also love that Samantha is in this shot (and Cricket as well)!
This bandana we brought home from a vacation fit Sheba perfectly – she loved and wanted attention from everyone she met!
The next photo has long been one of my favorites of Sheba playing with Luke and Cricket. Playing ball with her siblings was one of her favorite things, and she loved to be the one who had the ball, since Cricket usually hogged it!
Sheba always had a smile, and this shot was taken on her last birthday in October 2016. We didn’t expect her to still be with us then, so it was a very special one.
This final photo was taken just over two weeks before we lost her. She was active and happy almost right up until the end, and that was important to us.
We all love and miss you every single day, girlfriend, and we hope you are having fun with your family and friends at the Bridge. ♥♥♥♥♥
