Our family pup, Nyssa, was just taken way too soon. She was only 6 - an autoimmune system disorder took one of the sweetest and most friendly shelties I've ever known. She loved apples and carrots, chewing them carefully. She'd herd you with a solid nudge of her nose, and did a dance when it was supper time. I had not loved another sheltie since my Robin passed in 2003 - but Nyssa had to be loved. She was beautiful and will be so missed. She's been here before, and I hope more pups who are alive and playing will be featured here.
