2004 until 2015
Babe was rescued from Bishops Animal Shelter. We were her third adoptive parents! She was perfect for us! She was SO smart: I would just shake the car keys and she would be headed for the door. She chose (without prodding) to lay down as we prayed over our supper. She ate almost anything, including slurping spaghetti from a fork! She lived from 2004 until 2015, when she died of bloat. She made our house a home and was an intricate part of life here. Babe was truly special and greatly loved. It's because of her that we have now adopted another Akita from ARSF!
