This dog was the greatest friend I've ever known and I will never, ever forget him. This was him at 2 months.
Sheik passed away yesterday at the Vet hospital after being hit by a car. It was going to be too expensive to save him so I sat with him until he took his last breath. It truly was the saddest thing I've ever been through. But I know he went not in pain but in peace. He made it a point for me being the last thing he saw. If you ever thought that looking straight into a dog's eyes didn't mean anything, it does. It was as if I looked into his soul, and then I saw the life fade from his eyes. Having to make that decision was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life and I made sure I was with him every single step of the way. He was my best friend.
It just goes to show that life is fragile, whether it's a dog or a person, or any pet for that matter.
I just wanted to share the news with all of you. Sheik was almost 5 months. If you would like to send any condolences you can, because I know he was a mighty cool dog and I would love to hear why you loved my dog so much (if you knew him). The day before he was hit Best Buy let me take him into the store while I browsed around. I've never seen that dog happier. =) RIP Sheik - 9.7.2008 - I will Love you, always. <3>
