I buried my dog,Sasha, on Thursday. She was a great companion, a 10 lb. chihuahua. She gave us several litters of puppies, and still lived 17 years. She was loving and playful, went with me to work for many years. In the last couple years, she could no longer jump up into my truck, but came outside and waited to be lifted onto the seat. She gradually lost power in her hind legs, and used the ramp I had built to get to the back door of the house. I found her where she liked to bask in the sun. She went in her sleep.
