Memories of SPARKY
Sparky was a gentle little fellow, never met a stranger. Friendly with everyone. When I received Sparky, I had recently put down my Wire Haired Fox Terrior, due to brain tumors. The Vet I was using at the time saw the state of depression I was in. He brought "Crunchie" to me to take care of during a holiday weekend. Needless to say I fell in love with him, so I decided to keep him. Had to change his name! I spoke to him as if he was a child, telling him, the name "Crunchie" had to go, you are to suppose bring a spark to my life, so I will call you "SPARKY"!


To get him settled in his new home, I went shopping for new toys. It took a short time for Sparky to understand
what toys were, but quickly became adjusted to them, so much, NOBODY messes with his toys. He would hold them in his mouth and run and jump sling them up in the air, where they landed, well, we had to hunt as he barked due to being impatient to find. What a happy little fellow he was when the toy was found. The wag of his tail
would say it all. The joys, smiles and the SPARKS he brought to my life!

Tennessee: This is where we lived when we met. During the late Spring, Summer and early fall days while I was at work, you stayed in the fenced-in backyard. When I returned home in the late evenings, you always stood at the double gates and watched for my car, then you would take off running to the back of the yard, around the workshop and met me at the single gate before we enter the house. You grab a toy and we would play, then we would go out on the front porch to rest. I would sit in the swing and you would lay at my feet. We continued this routine for years. Then one day I arrived home, you were not at the double gates, nor at the single gate. I walked over the backyard, no sign of you, tears came to my eyes. I thought someone had taken you. I looked for the Rottweilers in the neighbors yard. GOOD GOSH! There you were, laying between the new neighbors 2 Rottweilers! All 3 of you were watching me.

Little Buddy: After getting you back to your yard, I told you I will find you a little buddy to play with.
Eventually I found you a (male) Beagle puppy, we called him Little Buddy. He stayed with us awhile until he became mature. Little Buddy started getting territorial, and him being a male and you a male, things were not working out. Just as luck would have it, a co-worker of mine son wanted a dog, so a new home for Little Buddy. The co-worker informed me son and Little Buddy were best of friends. Needless to say Little Buddy became KING of their house, spoiled rotten.


Intro to Table Food: We had a visitor for a couple of weeks, Jody! You and Jody were best of buddies. He introduced you to one bad habit and a brief encounter with ALCOHOL! The Bad Habit: Jody, staying in our spare bedroom, would get up very early for work, you, Sparky, would follow him thru his routine including breakfast and washing the dishes. The first morning Jody left for work, I went into the kitchen to get my cup of coffee. To my surprise, I saw in my dish drainer 2 plates and a saucer? When Jody came home that evening, I asked if he had company for breakfast, he told me No, why was there 2 plates in the drainer?
He told me, he made breakfast for Sparky too! So Sparky, your introduction to table food, eggs, bacon, grits and orange juice, hence the saucer.
Today brings a very sad memory. One year ago today, January 7th, I lost Sparky, MY LITTLE FELLOW. Every day I think of you, several times. I miss and love you so much.
TEN FEET TALL AND BULLET PROOF: Me and you Sparky were sitting in the living room watching the news. Jody came in from work upset. He fixed himself a strong drink and came in and sat in a chair beside me holding his drink over the side of the arm of the chair. You, Sparky were laying on that side. Jody commenced to tell me about what was he was upset about. We were so much involved in the conversation, we didn't pay any attention to you. Ten minutes into our converation Jody lifted his drink to take a swallow, his drink was gone! We both looked at you Sparky, and realized you drank Jody's drink. I scolded you, and WHAT DID YOU DO,
You turned around 3 times, kicked your two front paws and gave a hugh bark. Yes My Little Fellow, YOU WERE
