|Hi my name is Sassy.. I am also known as the Princess.. and I live
up to my names very well... I was born March 28, 1994. . My mom Ruffles
came to live with our human family when she was six months old.. and it
took Debbie four years to talk Darrel into letting her get a shitzu/bichon
cross.. Luckily when that time came they found my mom Ruffles.. they loved
her so much and since they couldn't have kids, they decided Ruffles would
have babies and out of that litter they would keep one.. I was born at
4:15 am the last of four in my litter.. By the time mom had me she was
pretty tired so she was pretty happy to let Debbie take over and clean
me up.. her finger was the first thing I sucked on.. and she tells me all
the time about when I was born and how she fell in love with me.. I was
hers from the moment I was born.. I have always been her girl.. when I
get upset I usually take it out on her.. One time Darrel lost me and Debbie
found me when I came home I was mad at her for a week.. She is supposed
to protect me.. but I got over it..
I guess you could say I have a bit of a snotty streak in me.. maybe
thats why they call me a princess.. sometimes I like to be cuddled lots
and sometimes I don't... and I live for my food.. I just love treats..
And if they forget to give me one I would bug them for up to an hour
after I thought I should be given one.. I have a sister named Cheyanna..
funny story.. I am her sister and I am her aunt...My father is her
grandfather.. her father you could say is my half brother.. My dad Kujo
was a busy boy.. I sure didn't like Cheyanna when she was first born..
it took me a month to accept her and her litter mates.. there were five
of these noisy little things.. and mom, I was mad at her for having them
for about two weeks..wouldn't even let her come near me.. but it was Christmas
eve and they were cute so I decided to accept them.. I am glad we kept
Cheyanna, she has been my best friend..
On Feb 24th 2006, Debbie took me to the vet cause I was having problems
with my water intake and output.. they told us I now have diabetes.. I
trust Debbie to do everything she can for me and lucky me she found good
people with lots of experience at Rainbow Bridge & Canine Diabetes
to help guide us along the way.. Kudos to you great people and to all your
wonderul fur babies whose diabetes will never be in vain as they guide
the way for all us newbies.. All I can do is say thank you and hope
that my journey will help a newbie one day just like you and your fur
babies are helping me....
Debbie and Sassy
