Death: Jan. 8, 2010
Johnston County

Starry was our wonderful "baby girl" toy poodle! She was a terrific dog and very smart. She had tight white curls, and beautiful brown eyes. She wasn't a tiny toy, and was a good size for two boys, as they were growing up.
She liked to bark and show that she was guarding her family, whenever someone came to the door. She loved to eat, and was always hungry for "people food", but she ate her doggy food also. She loved "her backyard" and always walked the perimeter of it, when she was out. She wasn't crazy about going out in bad weather, but would, if necessary. She loved to ride in the car and travel, and she traveled well.
She died of cancer, but was strong physically, until right at the end. She was still jumping up on our bed, three weeks ago.
I miss her so much! She was such a special member of our family, and we'll always love her!
This is what I wrote as a memorial when Copper died in July: "I am so completely sad this evening. Our sweet, tiny, almost four year old poodle, Copper (he of the thrown socks, barks for food, growling tugs-of-war) died about 10:30 p.m. July 15, 2009, in the arms of his Mom, with love all around him. We will all miss him so much! We love you, Copper Schullery!"
Copper was a tiny toy poodle, only weighed about five pounds, but he had the heart of a lion!! He sounded and acted much bigger than he was, and was quite the little male! He developed a seizure disorder about nine months before he died.
My Mom's Scottie, Savannah, died Tuesday, April 8, 2014.
She was born in late 2002 in Savannah, GA, and was a present from my sister, Diane. Her personality was quite different from the poodles that we had had before her. She was bullheaded and independent, but Mom and Dad loved her dearly and she definitely loved them.
When she was about two years old, Mom and Dad were visiting here, and she escaped through our front door out into the street. She was half a block away and at the corner of our street and the main road in a few seconds. She stopped there momentarily, with me chasing behind her as fast as I could go. I heard a vehicle approaching, and called for her, but she headed out into the street. The only thing that saved her life then was that it was a pickup truck that ran over her, and the undercarriage caught her in her hips. I arrived to a howling dog, in the middle of the lane, unable to walk. Since she was in the street, I knew I had to pick her up, and that scared me a great deal, because she had big jaws!! I picked her up, under her shoulders and tried to keep my hands and arms as far away from those jaws as possible! We had to take her to an emergency vet in Raleigh, and she survived and you never would have known that she had had anything broken.
She loved to go outside and for most of her life, she was on a rope out the back door. Mom was forever having to untangle her from the steps, or get her out from under the deck. Last summer, we were able to finish a fence for her and Mom, so she could roam the backyard for the last months of her life.
She was a very good dog, even though she wasn't a "cuddler". Her favorite place to lay was at Mom's head on the couch. I know Mom misses her very much. She was a well-loved dog!
