Chicken Soup for the Soul This is Sassy. She is the star of my little story, Learning to Be Sassy. She was a sweet loving companion to me and is sorely missed. This is Pumpkin. He is the co-star of my little story and steals the show! He and Sassy were the very BEST of friends, even if Sassy would never admit it. Pumpkin was such a love. Sassy would jump from the arm of the sofa to that window you see in this picture. Most days you’d find Pumpkin on the other side peeking in to visit with Sassy or he’d be stretched out on the porch waiting for her.
