Stinky Weeks' Memorial Page

For the best friend I've ever known

Stinky was found 7 months old November of 1997 tied to a cash register at a Pet Smart, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I had been waiting out in the car with my friend Kimberly Mcmartin as her parents went in to pick up some food for their own pet. An undescribable feeling hit me like a ton of bricks and I told Kimberly if I didn't go in that store, my life would be changed for the worse from that moment on. I walked into the store and saw the most beautiful dog I'd ever seen tied to the register. The store was going to close in 15 minutes, and the workers informed me they would have to release this stray dog as it was against store policy to have them on the premises after hours. The store was surrounded by interstate which lowered Stinky's odds for survival if I didn't take him. I walked him around the store to think it over, and he took to me right away. No loud barking or crying. In fact, he rarely barked at all. If he had something to say to you, he would flat out tell you, with little misunderstanding. I left my name and number with the Pet Smart people telling them to contact me if someone came looking for him. We became best friends immediately, and he lived with me for five wonderful years. He was a great field companion. He could track and catch just about anything. He was the smartest dog I've ever known. He learned how to catch the frisbee, roll over, beg, speak, Hid-N-Seek... In June of 2002, he became suddenly anemic from a tick bite and died within hours. The vet said they had over 100 dogs die that week of the same cause which they believed was from the bite of a tick called Ehrlichia canis. And a $1200 dollar blood transfusion would have saved him.
