Sierra (was Yetta)
Adopted in June 1999
Sierra was found on the streets of Boston when she was only a few months old. After using up her time at the shelter, GSRNE stepped in and saved her. She came to live with us and sister-dogs Parlay, Cindi and Jasmine in 1999 when she was about 6 months old. She was “adopted” by Cindi when we brought her home, who thought we’d gotten her specifically to be “her puppy”. She is best friends with Jasmine, and they love to do things together even sleeping together in the same bed. Sadly, both Parlay and Cindi have now gone to the Bridge, and are missed by all of us.
Sierra was a Delta Society Pet Partner when young, but as she grew older she became more aloof and wasn’t enjoying it anymore, so we retired her. She has done some obedience work in the past and has earned her CGC. She is now doing agility. She loves it and can’t wait to get to work.
Sierra has turned into an excellent agility dog. She loves racing over/ through each obstacle, and then looks at me as if to say: “That was fun, Mom, which one do we do next?” She hates the neighbor’s cat, who teases her unmercifully, and adores chasing squirrels and chipmunks in the back yard. She is full of life and is interested in everything! She is an absolute joy.
Six years have passed, and she is very much a loved and loving member of the family.
