.One of the trainers rmaeod into the room, saw my fascination with the dogand approached me.â€śAre you interested in this one?â€ťâ€śHow old is he?â€ť I asked.â€śTwo,â€ť she replied.Just what I wanted. I did not want to have to train a puppy. â€śWhat can you tell me about him? I asked.â€śHeâ€™s a really sweet dog, as you can see. Still a puppy, so he chews a lot.â€ťTwo years old and still chewing, I thought. That doesnâ€™t sound good to me.I stepped away and looked at the other dogs in their cages.A small black and brown puppy, one ear up, the other flopping down, looked back at me. She had eyebrows. I was a sucker for dogs with eyebrows. I didnâ€™t want a puppy. She sure was cute.â€śWhat kind of dog is she?â€ť I asked the trainer.â€śA husky mix,â€ť she replied. â€śHer name is Sarah. She was one too many inthe litter, and the owner couldnâ€™t keep her.I wondered why she was the one selected to go.â€śHow old is she?â€ť I asked.â€śFour months,â€ť the trainer replied.â€śI didnâ€™t want a puppy.â€śCan I walk her?â€ťThe trainer removed the pup from the cage, put her on a leash, and handed itto me. I really didnâ€™t want a puppy.We walked around the store, in and out of aisles, before returning to the trainer.She was so cute. I didnâ€™t want a puppy.â€śIâ€™ll take her,â€ť I said.After checking her out at the counter, I took her outside and put her in the front seat of my truck and headed home.Once we arrived in my driveway, I opened my door, and before I could stop her, Sarah jumped out and raced away.I chased her down the street and in and out of peopleâ€™s yards, until I cornered herin one and took her home.Soon I discovered that Sarah was housebroken, seemed sweet, but had a few problems. She didnâ€™t want to be told â€śno.â€ť â€śBad dogâ€ť sent her underthe bed barking. She dug under the gate and got out of the yard. Chasing her becamethe norm. She jumped up against the arcadia door when she wanted to come in. Luckily she was still a puppy and the glass was strong. Once, after taking her for a walk in the park, I put her in the back of the truck and headed home, stopping on the way to show herto my aunt. I left her in the truck while I went to get my aunt. When we got back, Sarahwas gone. She had pushed open the window and jumped out.The following day while I was creating posters to put up in my auntâ€™sneighborhood, I received a call from the pound. They had Sarah. When, I pickedher up, she was covered in feces. A bath was called for. She didnâ€™t want a bath.After two weeks, I decided this dog was not for me. I would return her tothe pound. Then I thought, who would want her? A dog like this would never finda home. What could I do, but keep her? I began to think she had been abused.Over the years, Sarah created many problems. She was an alpha dog, and when she lay on her back and I tried to scratch her stomach, she loved it, but when she realized she was in a servile position, she jumped up. She ran away, but always came backafter several hours of my worrying, She bit my husband constantly, occasionally bit meand once bit my brother when he was visiting, and tried to protect my granddaughter when she went for her food dish. Still, I kept her.But as she got older she showed many good qualities. She loved my 9 year oldgranddaughter and slept by the side of her bed when she stayed with me, protecting herfrom anyone who came near the bed.â€śI wish someone would come in and try to kidnap me,â€ť my granddaughter said.â€śThen Sarah would attack him.â€ť She loved all childrenSarah was a very smart dog, and had a mind of her own, It took twelve years to convince her that I was the alpha dog, at which point she allowed me to cuddle her. Iknew she loved me, although she still bit my husband.Sarah lived for fourteen and one-half years, and when it was time for her togo, it broke my heart.Six months after she was gone, I took a trip to Hawaii to visit my son. Myhusband was on the East Coast visiting his family and I came home to an empty house.But it wasnâ€™t empty, Sarah was there. She told me it was all right that I put her down and I should get on with my life.Over the years, I have had many dogs, but I think Sarah was the one I loved themost.
