Sasha was the first dog that Rasa and I got together. She was born in Melvindale, Michigan and we brought her home at the beginning of June that year. Right from the start, Sasha took charge and was very independent. Even after Cooper came, there was no mistaking who the alpha was. Sasha lived a good life with very few health problems aside from the arthritis that she suffered in her later years. She lived just beyond her 14th birthday and was put to sleep due to deteriorating health. She commanded respect right up until the end and will always be considered the one in charge.
