Zion's Endeavor of Betterways

is my first Shiloh that I gave as a birthday gift to my late husband,
Armand, who passed in November 2002 .
She was a funny puppy, always jumping in the shower with me. She
has enjoyed being my shiloh ambassador at the Providence and Boston
Pet Expos and in local parades with my dance students.
She was a
very mischievious little girl and developed the reputation of
"the smoothie with the tilted halo". She would
never let me take a shower without jumping in and loved to shred
paper off the coffee table, she was full of antics that were endless.
She was a miracle therapy for her human dad who spent endless
energy taking us to doggie classes, and doggie shows. She was
a devoted companion to her human and would always seem to alert
me in subtle ways when her dad was becoming ill and would end
up in a hospital stay.
a very special spot in my heart as she was my only salvation when
her human dad suddenly passed away back in 2002. Poor Star just
lost her zest and her halo straighten out in this time period.
I now see that halo tilting as she is once again returning
to her antics that make me laugh even when she is shredding paper
off the coffee table. She was my inspiration to become active
in the Shiloh Shepherd world and thus I began the SSONE Chapter-Shiloh
Shepherds of New England-need I say more. Of course now you all
do know that Shilohs are like "lays potato chips" I
am sure by now you have seen us use that expression.
Star is a
light brown sable with a smooth coat. She was well on her way
to a great show career, never failing to bring home those Best
of Breed (BOB) ribbons. I have retired Star to be my closest link
to my soul mate, Armand, and to be my
