Allison writes: I genuinely can’t believe I have to post this but – 3 weeks to the day since Rebel died – our other greatly loved dog Shepsie passed away. He was happy and healthy until the very end, and spent his very last moments in Homme-Adams surrounded by his dog park friends. I can’t say he was a “good” dog and indeed we frequently referred to him as “the bad one”. He was confident, smart, amazingly athletic, had a great sense of humor, and until he got a bit older really a handful. I always said that Shepsie never started fights, but he pushed other dogs’ buttons so they would react. But living with him was so rewarding and I wouldn’t have missed a minute of it.
