I know I’ve shared pictures of Sioux, my Anatolian Shepherd in other posts. She was a magnificent dog. On Tuesday, July 11, 2017, she passed away in our living room, in the late afternoon. It is difficult for me even as I sit here and write this. Sioux was such a part of our lives and even though she shed a lot and was sometimes a roadblock where we were walking, I miss her!
One night this week, after I had fallen asleep, I heard her bark! I sat upright in the bed. Norman, asked what was wrong. I said, “Did you hear the dog bark?” He touched my arm and said I was dreaming. I know that was Sioux though. Sioux was 11 in June. I know big dogs don’t live as long as smaller dogs, but we had just had her checked out in May, mothers day to be exact and she was fine. Some Arthritis, but nothing that should have killed her.
We got a new puppy and Josie is wonderful. She will never take Sioux’s place in my heart, but she is making her own place.
Have a great weekend everyone!
