commands in English and Spanish. After 3 years of blending into our family we were glad that Sassy had a sister and a play pal but inevitably Amo always wanted to dominate Sassy, most people and even tested my patience on many occasions as her aggression started to get the better of her. I suppose you can take the dog out of Mexico but never Mexico out the dog! When you consider the many millions of wild Mexican stray dogs and their DNA, they are programmed to fight for territory, food and ultimately their survival. Hence, with all the mixed breeds you are bound to have plenty of anti-social behavior issues in virtually all dogs especially when their entire existence is predicated on being a protector of people’s homes and property. In the end, we thought it best for Sassy’s long-term health and welfare to locate a good safe home for Amo with another local couple who were capable of continuing to love and care for her as we had.

On August 28th Sassy passed away peacefully at Carleton Veterinary Services just outside North Gower during a gorgeous sunset befitting a beautiful creature who brought so much joy to this world. We are dedicating this Thanksgiving Day for having Sassy on the planet for 14 years or 98 human years ... may she rest in peace.
