3/30/2009 - 9/11/2020Sparky was the most gentle, sweet dog . The whole family feels lost not having her with us. All the cats would just cuddle up to her and loved laying with her. Sparky had a very traumatic start. She was found living under a bridge and rescuers took two weeks before she trusted them to help her. She always remained cautious and shy, but loved to play and interact with TV dog shows trying to share her toys through the screen. We worked with her until she developed enough confidence to master agility courses and enjoyed swimming. I was highly honored she learned to trust me and show affection. She was very loyal and protective barking at the USPS carrier right up to her last day. Sparky was diagnosed with bladder cancer July 2019. Her system was so sensitive she could not tolerate any of the medications but I was able to keep her on CBD oil. The last couple of weeks she was having more difficulty passing urine and had bleeding from the tumor. When she stopped eating I knew it was time to help her pass. I couldn’t bear to see her suffer. I know she is in Heaven with family now.JoAnne DiStefanoHummelstown, PennsylvaniaSeptember 15, 2020

Sparky was such a good dog...she will be missed by all but is now in heaven with her grandmother who passed not long before her. Sparkly loved her Sunday hamburgers and at Christmas her eyes always lit up when she got her gift. Spark was loved by all, both human and feline...Joanne gave her such a good life and Sparky was loyal and appreciative of that until her last day. Spark's life may have started out rough, but once rescued she lived like a queen. Rest In Peace Spark!!!RoseAnn DiStefano - September 23, 2020
Sparky was such a sweet and beautiful angel! You gave her so much love and care and she gave you all of her heart in return. She was so lucky to have found you and you were also lucky to have had such a sweet and intelligent girl in your life. May you find comfort in your warm memories of Sparky <3Nikki Abdulla - September 18, 2020
Sparky "Sparkadoodle" was a sweet little girl who was always happy and would wag her little tail. It was entertaining watching her communicate with the people and animals on TV. She will be greatly missed. I'm glad she is now free of her pain and suffering. She had a great life, despite her rough beginning. May she rest in peace with the rest of our loved ones.Nicole Lee - September 16, 2020
