Anything else you'd like to add: CRD shelter didn’t offer a lot of history. Sassy may have been a part of a Whistler operation. She worked in Merritt and was re-homed to a family in Langford.
She is very athletic and kept escaping, She is a friendly and the CRD pound picked her up a number of times. Finally the family said ‘keep her’. She was put up for adoption at the shelter.

SESSION NOTE ~
Sassy was one cool cucumber at her session. From her sweet spiritedness, her tail with extra flouff (yes, not just fluff, but flouff) added, and those ears - what is it about sleddie ears?!
The 'Sassinator' was extremely comfortable during her session, in fact, I'd go so far as to say she enjoyed herself (and the Stella & Chewy's Surf N' Turf treats)!
I see Sassy from time to time - she has a malamute sister that everyone thinks was the sleddog... And one of the funny things (well, funny now that it's in the past) is that she went missing one day and was found by a restaurant named Sassy's
