Everyone had their nicknames for Amber. Mike and his father frequently referred to her as "Stinky" or "Stupid". Mike's mother called her "Sweetheart" and "Honey". Mike's sisters loved to call her "Baby" and "Booger". My nickname for her was "Ambie Bear" which I always called her when I came over to visit.
In Amber's earlier years, she distinctly disliked other dogs and would not accept them in her home. By the time Luna came into our lives, Amber had settled down and allowed Luna to join the family. Luna loved to follow Amber from room to room and in and out of the house. I wonder if Luna will notice that her constant companion will be missing from the home when we go to visit.
Amber was a fantastic dog who made her family very happy. She loved nothing more than to receive affection and return that love tenfold. She will be sorely missed.
