A Tribute to Sally
She was just about the smartest, loving dog you could find anywhere.
She was my baby for over 14 years,
now she is with God at the Rainbow Bridge.

Sally with her brother, sister and mummy

On February 13, 2014 at 11:15 am Sally went to her final resting place.
She was in the company of her brother and sister and of course Ann and I.
No more pain and suffering for my girl. Sally was born in February 2000 and
had lived a very full life. Her age just caught up to her.
She will be missed by all.
14 years is a long life for a Black Lab and as this page shows she had a very happy life.

She now at the  Rainbow Bridge.

Sally, June 2006
This is how I will always remember her.
She was Daddy's girl all her life 

  Rainbow Bridge 

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed
are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them,
who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.
His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group,
flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous
reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the
beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but
never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Even in Sally's later years she enjoyed herself
Many of the things she did as a young dog she
tried to continue with when she go older.


I think her favorite thing to do was to go for a drive with me in the car.
This was her last car drive the she and I took together.
Although she she couldn't swim much in her later years she she still tried.
This was last summer at Brule Shore
Camping in our motorhome was a big part of her live
She enjoyed walking with Pandy and Maggie
visiting the other campers. She was always welcome
As you can see Maggie likes to do this too but is a bit impatient
And after a long walk it was time for a rest
When we got the new motorhome she she adjusted to it very quickly
This was August 2013 and by now she needed help to get in and out of it.
But no matter what she still like to go for her walk.

On April 21, 2009 she lost her brother and best friend.
He had a mussel condition and was just too old to fight it any longer.
He is happy now and can run with all the other dogs in heaven
but she will really miss him. He played with her from her first days here.
He was the best friend a dog could ask for.
But Sally got a new brother, Panda and they got along very well.
Then came Maggie the poodle. What a family that was.
Well now it is just Maggie and Panda.

Buddy, February 1997 - April 2009



Although Sally hasn't had any new pictures on her web page for some time we just wanted to let you know
that she is doing great and want to say HI to all her friends. In Feb. 2012 she was 12  years old. She doesn't
swim much these days but still likes to play ball and have a good time.
She really misses Buddy but has a new brother, Panda

 My Dad said to tell you that he last updated my web page on Jan 1 2011

My dad told me that it was a whole new year and we were going to do a lot more playing
I might be getting older but i still love to play so let's get to it.

OK what are we waiting for
Dad I'm waiting
OK here's getting ready to kick the ball
Well almost ready
He really likes to keep me waiting
He thinks I will take my eyes off it and he will be able to get it past me
That's not going to happen
OK that was easy, so let's do it again
And again
and again
I could do this all day
Ahh Please One more time

Well folks another year has come and gone and my Dad says it's now 2007 what ever that means.


Now folks Isn't that a mean trick to play on a Black Lab.
My Dad took me down to the Quarry Park today and I thought
I was going to get my first swim of the season.
That's ICE out there.
And Dad told me it was April 14th.

Well folks I finally made it. The !!! FIRST SWIM !!!
It's eleven days later and My Dad took me down to the Quarry Park again.
The ice is all gone and I met a new friend.
His name is Chewy.
I don't know why they would call a Black Lab that.
He hasn't spent much time in the water yet but he will this summer.
After all he is a Black Lab and we love the water.

Well Folks last year I had my first swim on April 27 and this we were one day later.
Dad said it was April 28..
Again we went to one of my favorite places, the Quarry Park.
It sure was nice after a long winter with no swimming.

Well here we are.
Not so far out Dad This is my fist time this year
OH Well I got it anyway
Now to get that ball
I'll get it good
OK Dad let's do that again
Come on I'm waiting.
So that was my first swim at the park, now we are 
going to the beach.
The water there is a lot colder so I had to wait.
Dad said it was May 14 and the water  should
be just right for me
Now that's the beach
I can't wait. Ball or no ball, I'm going in
They want to go for a walk first, can you imagine that
This is where we went for the walk. 
Dad calls it Summerville Harbour
Now this is waht I came here for.
You can walk anytime
There's that ball
So lets do that again

Now we are going to play ball. One of my favorite games.

We are going to play ball but I have to wait
until my Dad finishes his work.
The sun got on my eyes and made me sneeze
OK Are we ready yet??
You just try and kick that ball past me
Go ahead Just try, I'm ready
Oh!! You want me to back up
OK I backed up. Now kick it.
So you got that one by me. Just try it again
OK so you did it again.

Now these pictures are from last year.

Does that ever feel nice
I just have to have a little swim first
OK I'm coming
OK OK I'll wait !! Do I ever hate waiting !!
Here I go
Now that's a splash
There it is
I got it I got it
This what I chase in the water
I don't know what you call it but my
dad sure can throw ot a long way
 The next week my Dad took me to 
the beach for another swim
Ok Ok I'm ready
He sure threw it a long way out 
But I got it
The water is still a bit cold even for a Black Lab
You see I can just lay around and be a pretty face 
Not for too long though
OK It's time to play ball
I can throw it of I get it just right
There I did it
So there 
What's that over there ??
Well it's May 15 and  time for another swim
I really like to jump way out in the water
See what I mean
Well I guess it's time to go home

My dad said that he was going to leave last years pictures here for a while.
I just can't get enough of this.
Come on, throw that stick.
I got it.
My Dad told me that I have to loose some weight
and swimming is the best way to do it.
Have a big shake and get ready to do it again.
Hay Chewy, you're going the wrong way.
Chewy's little sister is throwing the stick for us now.
Dad said not to go too far out but I think 
the water's warmer out here.
No the Park is OK for a quick swim but if
a dog wants a good swim and lots of fun
the beach is the place to go.
 I just have to check things out and see 
what has changed from last summer.
The water looks the same from down here.
 Yep it's the same water.
 Swimming here sure is fun and I should loose 
some of that weight I put on this winter.
 I forgot about the new toy Mom 
got me for Christmas
OK !!  OK !! Let it go.
 Boy will that thing ever go far.
Buddy thinks he can get it before me.
 OK Mom here it is. Let's do it again.
No Buddy you aren't going to get it.
 You have to try harder then that to beat me.
Buddy do you think she will throw it again ? 
 I don't know Sally but I'm ready.
Now was that a splash or what ??
 OK Lets try that again. 
Another day back at the beach. 
Buddy told me he was going in for a swim today but 
I'll have to see that. The water is still pretty cold. 
Yep he went in.
 Now he's a game I really like to play.
 You have to watch the ball real close because
my Dad will try to kick it when I not watching.
Click here to see my Dad's Pallet Shed being built.
 I mean real close.
 I got it.
That's my Dad shed for his tractor behind me.
He made it out of wooded pallets.
He called ot his Pallet Shed and has a web page 
showing it being built.
 Now I have to bring it back.
 Then he kicks it again.
This can go on for hours.

If you want to look at last years pictures just keep going.
First I want to show you some of the pen pals I have form last summer.

Rufus playing with his brother Sammy

OK enough of that serious stuff. It's time to play.
Here are a few of the things I like to do to keep my girlish figure

Before you look at my pictures my Dad took a
short video of me chasing the frisbee.
Click here to have a look at it and see how good
I am at catching that thing.

I just love swimming and fetching the stick.
If you want to see a short video of me diving
in the water click here
I sure do make a big splash.
How's this for a splash ???
Sometimes I go real high in the air.
My Dad thinks I should have wings.
You always have to bring the stick back though.
That way he can throw it again.
Ah Come on Dad hurry up, I'm waiting.
A trip to the beach is also lots of fun too.
And there is usually some treats waiting if we are good. 
That other guy there is my Big Brother Buddy.
He's really not that grumpy, he just looks that way.
Sometime a girl just likes to 
lay around the deck in the sun.
Now playing ball is real fun.
My Dad kicks it all over the yard and I chase it.
I sure don't like waiting for him to kick it again.
He even plays ball with me on the cold winter days 
and was it ever cold this day.
We have lots of fun and it's great for that 
girlish figure which I really have to watch.
After playing outside in that cold this is real nice.
There's that big guy again.
We really do get along good together.
Sometimes when no one is looking 
I like to get up on the bed and 
have a little snooze.
So there that's what I like to do.
OH there's one more thing but we'll have to get so
pictures of it.
I just love to catch the Frisbee
So now tell me, am I not the most 
beautiful little Black Lab you've ever seen.
And you just got to love that tong.

My Dad told me we had to take some more pictures today.
He wanted me to get my web page finished so he could upload it.

Here I am hard at work on my web page.
So you don't think a dog can use a computer.
Well you had better think again.
I've been using one since I was 6 months old and if you don't believe me look at my first page and you will see me checking my e mail and playing games.
Click here to have a look at it.
Look what my Dad bought me.
I guess he didn't want me to
drive the Jeep any more.
It's not very big but my Dad said
it's just the right size for a 
little girl like me.
Now we are going to play fetch the stick.
I really like this game.
I can even throw it my self.
If I just get it the right way between my paws.
Chewing it is a lot of fun too.
My dad plays tough with me when 
I bring it back to him.
I think he lets me win though.
There I go chewing it again.
Mmmmmmm I sure tastes good.
Now we are going to go for a walk up the hill.
Yes it's the same hill that my Dad got his
Jeep stuck on.

Click here to see how he did it.

Now I want to go in that back field.
Come on Dad hurry up.
I really like it in here.
Now we are going to play Frisbee.
I really enjoy this.
But you have to bring it back or 
he can't throw it again.
OK Dad here it is.
What are you waiting for, I'm ready.
He we go again.
Look at the air under them feet.
Now this one landed in the grape vines.
I thought it was in there for good.
But I got it out.
Sometimes it's easy to catch.
And other times it isn't.
See what I mean.
Even so it's really fun.
Well folks my Dad said it's April 20 th and that means
that SPRING is really here.
So lets get down to some serious playing
and this is a serious stick for a little girl like me.
Now this is what I've been waiting for all winter.
The first SWIM.
Maybe now I can lose some of that weight I put on.
You see I didn't forget how to make a big splash.
Chasing sticks in the water is real fun.
Then when I get it on the shore I really give it a rough time.
Yes that's ice out there but remember I'm a BLACK Lab
and the cold doesn't bother me.
I like to just swim around too.
Where did that stick go ???
Did I tell you I have a new friend that lives up the road.
Her name is Patches and she's what they call a boxer.
This was another day I have been waiting for.
My first run on the beach this spring.
All kinds of things happened here since last fall.
I'll just have to check them out.
OH Yea Buddy came along too.
Hay Buddy check this out.
What do you think it was ?
OH that water feels so good.
Hey Dad, we are over here.
Now isn't that a nice view ?
My Dad said that I can't play all the time 
and have to do some work. 
He chopped down this big tree and said
I had to help get it out to the road.
Well it was hard work but we got it done.
So enough of this working thing. 
So now let's get back to playing.
We got all that wood up in the yard so let's play a bit.
Come on Dad, see that stick.
After all that playing I have to have a little rest.
There's that tong again.
I must get some sun on my belly.
Hey Sally that looks like fun.
Sure does feel nice.
This is my Mum's garden and she told me that these 
flowers are tulips.
When I'm playing I have to make sure I stay out of here.
Well I had a hard day, so it's time for a nap.
We went for a big drive today and
Dad stopped to get a treat for us.
Boy I sure like that stuff. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Good
Buddy likes it too. I didn't know his tong was that big.
OK folks I know you have been
waiting for some new pictures of me and here they are.
I was playing ball with my Dad today.
Was it ever fun.
You have to really watch him.
He always tries to get it past me.
I'm ready now.
I got it.
OK here it is Dad.
Kick it again.
I got it again.
My poor ball has seen better days but it still works good.
I can even bring it back using my nose.
This my new friend Oliver that I told you about.
He loves to swim just like me.
He's chasing my stick but I saw him with a BALL.
Buddy wanted to meet him too and forgot that he doesn't
like the water.
Ahh  Come on Oliver lets chase your ball.
I bet I can get to it first.
I got it before he did. 
You can't catch me.
Ahhh He got it first this time.
This my Mum. She's going to throw the ball for me. 
And this is Oliver's Mum
Don't you think we make a nice couple?
After supper tonight Dad took Buddy and me up to the back field to see if we could find any birds to play with.
This is the back field that I really like to play in.
This is where all those birds hang out.
I'm looking for one now.

Are we really going to go to the beach ??
Yep that's the beach.
I really like swimming here.
That girl is going to throw the stick for her dog but I'm going to get it first.
Well maybe next time.
He won't give it to me.
Boy is he ever fast.
He's what they call an Australian Sheep Dog.
I thought he was supposed to chase sheep not sticks.
Well folks it finally happened.
That brother of mine decided he had sat on the beach long enough.
I mean he is six and just learned how to swim.
See he's going right at it.
He even chases sticks but if I get it first he still wants it.
Have a look at his page and see him really getting into swimming.
There is a link below or you can click here.


Well folks that's all for now. You'll have to wait
until my Dad takes finds something else for me to do.
I hope it isn't work.
