Popular Post Islander Posted February 8, 2016 Popular Post Share Posted February 8, 2016 Gus lost his best friend today. Sasha, his big buddy, protector, teacher, and loyal hiking companion, was lovingly put to rest by her family due to terminal cancer. Sasha was the exact opposite of Gus. She was huge – half Malemute and half Great Pyrenees – weighing about a hundred pounds more than Gus. She was a very calm and serious dog most of the time, so when you saw her playing with her rubber chicken it was hilariously incongruous. She could get excited, especially if she sensed a human or canine intruder into her territory. But generally speaking she was quiet and unruffled – unlike her little pal. Sasha took such good care of Gus when he was a puppy. When she had enough of his dilly-dallying or playing with other dogs on the trail, she just went over and rolled him on his back, then poked him with her nose to get him going. He was certainly more responsive to her discipline as a puppy than to mine. Once he was grown she seemed to acknowledge his adulthood although we often wished she would keep parenting! Sasha was a beautiful, loving, and well loved dog. We will miss her so much. Rest in peace, big girl. 11 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
