Ebony was given to my husband by a friend when she was 6 weeks old. I was furious because she was a pit bull but got over it.
She was such a sweet tempered dog that no one realized she was a pit (we never had her ears or tail clipped) so she looked like a black lab.
She was very protective of me and John. We live in a big house with a basement, she had her own doggy door that went out into a fenced back yard. She had access to every square inch of the house.
Ebony became such a big part of my life. She was always by my side through the good times and bad times and I don't know how I would have done without her. If I was sick she would get very close and not leave my side. She was my shadow, the best friend anyone could ever have.
She loved to ride in the car or truck and we took her everywhere.
She was by my side 24/7 and she loved John so much. She could hear his truck blocks away and would run downstairs to wait for him in the garage.
She loved teddy bears and sock monkeys out of all the many toys we had given her over a 10 year period. (I have all her toys saved in a special drawer)
M and M candies were a no no in our house. She could hear you open a bag or bottle from outside. I had to stop buying them. She also loved blue cheese dressing.
We had a cat door in our front door and she loved to stick her head out to scare anyone who rang the door bell. It was hilarious, the neighbor across the street just loved to watch that. However, the mail lady was not impressed.
Such sweet and wonderful memories!!!!!!
