For our children, Cross Check has always been there. She joined our family when Emery was a baby. She was always happy to see us; her face would light up and she would wag with her entire hind-end. She was never aggressive and tolerated baby’s tugging on her ears and younger dogs nipping at her heels.
As a service animal, she flew more flights than seasoned travelers, rode on buses and trams, slept in hotels, hung out in restaurants and napped under desks in cubes. I know everyone always says their dog is the “best dog ever.” But in her case, it really might have been true. She was selfless in the way she cared for me when I was sick.
Even though initially it was I who rescued her from Denver Dumb Friends… it was Check who rescued all of us.
We won’t ever forget you, Check. We will all always love you.
Your family always,
Sarah Beth, Steven. Emery, Satchel, Dane, Bowie and Tatum
