Sirius of the Week for Dec. 28, 2003 - Jan 4, 2004

This week we honor the memory of a very brave dog, Sheba. Sheba was born in 1991 and lived for 10.5 years. The last 2.5 years, she suffered from a spinal cord disease called degenerative myelopathy, which caused her to first lose the use of her back legs, then finally the front legs as well. Sheba lived a happy life despite her handicap, thanks to the love and care of her person- mom and dad -- and her dog cart, which allowed her to get around. During this time, Sheba still enjoyed playing with her mom and dad and with her canine siblings.

Sheba was a dog of great spirit, and a wonderful inspiration.


Sheba and Jerry Lee

You can learn more about Sheba and her treatment at her website.
