Foster Sally

Miss Sally, our long term foster sheltie took a serious turn for the
worse and died last week. She was with us for 6 months and had become a
real favorite of Donna. Sally came in to our rescue group (Northern
Virginia Sheltie Rescue) after having been hit by a car and injuring her
head and leg. She has surgery for her leg and recovered well, she was
originally thought to be about 6 or so but turned out to most likely be
closer to 12 or 13. We thought she was making real progress but must
have suffered a stroke or serious seizure overnight and then was largely
unresponsive. We buried her here on the farm and the attached picture
shows some of the markers I made to mark her spot. We decided to go with
CNC Plaques for Miss Sally
the oval shaped marker with black letters and put it on a pine tree next to her grave.

These were made with the CNC router I blogged about in previous posts.
I've been asked to make a few more of these by others in memory of their
shelties so will see how that works out.

More later.

  1. She was very loved and comforted by you and mom in her final months; she was lucky to be able to spend that time in such a loving home. Sounds like you picked out a perfect place to be able to see her on your daily walks, and the marker looks very nice!
