Sable when she won SiegerinOn October the 14th 2002, Sable lost her battle with bone cancer. She was stoic and brave throughout her illness and stayed with her mom far longer than she should have. She was one of kind, more a partner than a pet and I am going to miss for a very long time.


At home she is affectionately known as "Dork". Her hobbies include Kleenex Shredding, Sock Stealing, and as a charter member of face washers anonymous, covering visitors with saliva. Now almost eleven years old, Sable has retired from most of her activities, although she recently won a recurring role on the TV series The Sausage Factory. They didn't want a Rottweiler but did like the fact she will snarl on command baring all her teeth. Her daughter Cali has to double I make look mean but I'm just working for a treatany of the more strenous activities called for in the script such as jumping through windows or charging at the bad guy.

Sable has been a wonderful dog and I am truly grateful she came in to my life. She was always willing to try anything I asked her to and her sense of humor gave me many lessons in humilty and a certain fatalistic view on competition. For all of that, she gave what ever she was doing one hundred and ten percent (it's the last ten you had to watch out for). She was and still is a very, very smart dog (not necessarily blindly obedient) and she can come up with some of the most creative solutions to problems you didn't know you had. (Full underwear drawer - solve that by hanging contents on bushes in the backyard). I can remember leaving her on a down stay in a training facility while I practiced hand signals in a mirror. I was puzzled about the laughter of the other students until they pointed out she was obeying all the commands perfectly some 40 feet behind me.

At one point in time she was the most titled female Rottweiler in Canada and few dogs of any breed can match of the variety of sports she has worked in, including: agility, conformation, drafting, flyball, herding, obedience, schutzhund, and CKC style tracking. Most importantly she has been a loyal friend and partner. She is (in my own and most likely biased opinion) almost perfect, although she does snore and is a bit of bed hog.
