CH UWP Be R's "ACE" Espinoza's Queen of Sheba
11-12-93 to 07-17-07
Today 07-17-07 my girl was not doing well, I knew it was her time. I had always promised myself I would never let her suffer or be in pain just because I still wanted her around. I did not want to be selfish like I have seen so many other people do with their dogs because they love them so much they won't let them go. Today I met the reality of my promise to myself and Sheba. My God it was so hard to do. I called work to let them know I won't be there today, it was my Sheba's time to be set to rest. I loaded Sheba in the car. We went to McDonalds and shared breakfast together. (she would not eat her own food that morning) Sausage egg Mcmuffin she didn't refuse, but still had a hard time eating it. After breakfast we made our journey to my vets office. I laid in the back of my subaru with her holding her letting her know how much I loved her while their prepared the room for her. By this time she could hardly walk or stand. We went into the room. Once sedated she laid on the table still. I held her hand (paw) and rubbed her face with tears rolling down my eyes. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. Even though her organs were failing, her heart was so strong, it was refusing to stop beating. It took three shots before it would stop. What a strong heart she had. I knew this because of how much love that dog would show for me. When I was sick she would never leave my side. When I was in danger, she ran to my rescue. She protected my car and my yard. She was truely the dog that I had always dreamed of. From the Vets office I took her home. At home I pulled all her ribbons from the wall and along with her trophys and all the flowers gave her the memorial she deserved. In pulling the ribbons down I reviewed the Judges that placed her and the dates, finding a 1st place ribbon with Sandy Comer (deceased) and began to cry even harder thinking of Sandy as she was my freind. I placed Sandy's blue ribbon on Sheba's heart. Two old ladies with the strongest hearts. Maybe Sandy will be with Sheba to show her around. Before laying her to rest next to Angel, I held her and cried for a very long time. It was so hard to let go of her. I loved her so much.
I would like to thank everyone for their kind words with Sheba's passing
HEY GIRL.......I DIDN'T THINK ANY ONE WAS AS SAPPY AS ME BUT YOU GOT ME BEAT BUT ONLY BY A LITTLE. CELEBRATE HER LIFE AND YOU CAN BELIEVE YOU TOUCHED HER AS MUCH AS SHE TOUCHED YOU. WHEN YOU CAN WALK LIFES PATH WITH A CREATURE THAT GIVES YOU SO MUCH JOY YOU ARE TRULY BLEST. MAY THE GOOD LORD BLESS YOU AND YOURS IN THIS TRYING TIME.... GARY J. HAMMONDS 7-18-2007
I'm so sorry for your loss. I know Sheba had a special place in your heart. If only they could live just a little longer.
Having lost my beloved Bulldozer last year, I know your pain and sorry on this saddest of days. What a beautiful tribute to a beautiful girl. She is lucky to have live with such a caring owner. I am so sorry Renee.
I'm so sorry for your loss. The best thing about dogs is the richness they lend to our lives, and the worst thing is that they always leave us too soon. Thank you for allowing us to share your sorrow. I hope that by sharing we make your burden lighter.
My heart go's out to you today for I know what your dogs mean to you. It gives me strength knowing how many great dogs you have produced and I want you to know I'm proud to be the owner of one of them. Through each generation the quality and greatness of Sheba will live forever. That for which you can smile. I wish you peace in your heart.
I have tears in my eyes reading this and looking at the photos of Sheba. I am so sorry! They truly become our family and I can’t imagine the loss you are feeling right now. Thank you for sharing your photos with me, I’ll be thinking about you.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. Its always hard to loose the ones we love. Rest assured she knows she was very well loved. Best wishes to you
Im so sorry Renee, I did not know she was sick.
My best friend closed his eyes last night ,as his head was in my hand.
The doctors said he was in pain,and it was hard for him to stand.
The thoughts that scurried through my head,as I cradled him in my arms.
Were of his younger, puppy years,And oh his MANY charms.
Today, there was no gentle nudge with an intense ; I love you gaze,
Only a heart that filled with tears
Remembering our joy filled days.
But an Angel just appeared to me
,And he said,you should cry no more,
God also loves our canine friends,He's installed a doggy-door!!
Sorry to hear of your loss. I know she was a wonderful friend and companion of yours. Our prayers go out to you to ease your heart.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing them is never easy, no matter the cause. She'll be waiting for you over the Rainbow bridge.
I am so sorry to hear that Sheba passed, but she lived a good long life for any dog. 14 years - thats OLD. I can only hope my old dogs get to that age like she did.
Thank You, Amanda Reichelt Mount Brier Farms

OMG girl you cannot tell me that...... Bandit is the straw that holds this family together I am literally bawling my eyes out that both angel and sheba are gone.....I don't know what we would do if bandit goes...he just turned 11 in february and in the last 5 months it seems he has tripled in age.... he's slower.... he doesn't want to eat as much..... all kinds of crazy signs that he's getting older! This breaks my heart! I am soooooo sorry to both you and Brad....
I am so sorry to hear about your Sheba. You have my sympathy. Had she been ill ? If you don't feel like talking about it I will understand. My old Patterdale girl is 13 1/2....everyday I am I am happy that I have had another day with her.

Renee & Brad,
Brad called me this morning with the bad news that Sheba had died, and was quite broken up over it, and having to go home to bury her. You both have my condolences, I know how hard this was for you. I dread to think of Cuda dieing, and know how broken hard I'd be.

Oh...I am soo sorry for your loss. It is NEVER easy loosing a great dog...Here is a poem from my ole Sylver dogs memorial...it took me almost a year to be able to say his name without tearing up...so I know how you feel
I held you in my arms
As you took your final breath
Tears filled my eyes
As I finally accepted your death.
As you become an angel
Tear drops hit the floor
Silence fills the room
Pain you'll feel no more.
How will I live without you?
How will I go on?
How will I face another day
Knowing that you're gone?
But I wasn't selfish
I only thought of you
The peace that you must feel
It was something I had to do.
So fly up to heaven
Be at peace my baby
We had a lifetime of
Never forget how happy
you made me.
I will never forget your beautiful face. You taught forgiveness faith strength and unconditional LOVE.
You will always be in my thoughts peace be with you now till we meet again.....
Rest In Peace Old Friend...
Play hard at the bridge, sweet old lady. Those photos were a beautiful tribute to her physical self.
So sorry for your loss. This made me tear up....
You have my sympathies
Just remember, all dogs go to heaven
I've tried to write a couple times. I'm going to try it again. I was just reading all the things other people have told you. I can tell they are all true dog lovers. I have to agree with all of them in how hard it is to read the sadness of your loss of SHEBA. ( Sheba did IT.) That what I used to tell her all the time teasing her. I have been crying and thinking of you and Sheba all week. I no in time it will get better not ever easier. I still miss Tara very much. She was 16. Sheba rest in peace. Love you!!!!!!!!! Barb
Hello from Yoda and the girl they are doing great. Growing very fast. They have more than doubled in size. We call the littler one Dee Dee and the bigger one Moose. The butter milk and cottage cheese twice a day is helping Im sure.
Love you both, Ace and Barb
I just wanted to say it was nice talking to you, but mostly to let you know again how sorry I am to hear about Sheba. There is no doubt how special she was to you, this must be a very hard time for you.
Your tribute to her is beautiful.
Here is a quote that I find fitting for dog lovers such as ourselves...
"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary pain... "
From "Separate Lifetimes" by Irving Townsend
Hang in there.
I'm sorry about Sheba's passing, I know you loved her dearly. Both of her granddaughters look beautiful.
We will keep checking on your website for upcoming breedings and keeping in touch with you.

I am so sorry to hear about your Sheba. I know you must have felt the weight of the world crashing down on you when you made your decision. I will keep you in my prayers. It is admirable of you to not be selfish and let her rest in peace. May God bless you and your family in this time.
