Sketch’s Eulogy:

“The Best Dog Ever

I struggled to write this because I could go on and on about how amazing he was.

Sketch has been the biggest part of of my life. I wanted another dog to play agility with, since that’s what my Shih Tzu, Lucky, liked. My mom chose to bring a Border Collie into the family. He came home with us when I was 10 years old and completely changed my world.

From day one, he loved to play and never wanted to stop. He was always ready to go at any time. Anything that could be thrown was a toy to him, although his favorite toy was the soccer ball. While he loved pretty much all the dog sports we tried, frisbee ended up being his calling. He really loved freestyle. It was fast paced and he got to run around, continually catching one disc after another. He was incredible at catching too – one of the best catching dogs ever. He was kind of a perfectionist. He wouldn’t even let raindrops falling from the house hit the ground.

Besides being an incredible athlete, Sketch was the sweetest dog. He was always Mr. Happy-Go-Lucky, full of love and joy. He never met a person he didn’t like. He loved to give kisses and it was advised to keep your mouth shut when around him, otherwise he’d lick you in the back of the throat. (He had the longest tongue too!) No one could do anything without Sketch bumping their arm up to say he wanted to be petted. What I’d give to have him push my arm away from whatever I’m doing one more time…

He was so connected and adept at reading peoples’ emotions. He knew when to push with obnoxious kisses and when to be gentle. He knew when it was a competition vs when it was practice. He knew when he could get away with being a little naughty and when we really needed him to listen.

We learned countless things together, two of the biggest being working as a team and never giving up. Thank you, Sketch. My best buddy, the best dog ever, the most awesome dog I’ve ever met… I am so lost without him.”
