8/18/2009 - 12/27/2019We adopted Alyssa, a Wheaten Terrier, in February of 2016 from Senior Pet and Animal Rescue. She was a show dog and not a typical dog, so she had been handed around to at least four homes in the past year. before getting to SPAR. Alyssa was more cat than dog, but in our years together had learned how to be a regular dog. She had a very sweet disposition and loved people. Alyssa taught us so much and gave us so much joy and love. She loved car rides and running errands hanging out on the front porch and even joined us on some bike rides in a dog carrier. Alyssa and our mailman became very close buddies. She had her own entourage of dogs and owners, who visited her regularly as they went past our porch, and through her, we got to know our neighbors after years of living on the block. Unfortunately, she developed a very aggressive sarcoma in her mouth and soft palate. We only had three months after the diagnosis to enjoy her and keep her comfortable, which she was until the end. Dr. Hederick came for her euthanasia and was so kind and caring; she made the worst task an owner has to do, very special. The house is so empty without Alyssa and I especially miss rubbing her ears and giving her kisses. Although we are sad, remembering her always brings a smile to my heart.Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaJanuary 8, 2020
