RIP Sadie

Sadie, 1996-September 3, 2014
Sadie, Michelle's dog of about 18 years had to be put down last night. It was a very tough decision, but she was blind, no teeth, deaf and had trouble walking or even standing the past week or so.

It killed me to see her go, as Chad took her to the Vet to have her pain go away for good. I couldn't have done it, it was the first time I have ever had to have a pet put down and it was a little hard to say goodbye.

She used to have seizures real bad and Michelle was going to put her down 5 years ago, but numerous walks on the trails and she sprung back to life for a few years. This past year however she had continued to get worse and worse. We tried taking her out on the trails this summer and she really didn't even want to be outside anymore.

She used to jump around and yelp every-time we even thought about taking a walk, as she was my walking companion for a couple of years. Always leading the way and we were always following her lead.

Earlier this summer we knew it was time, I suggested giving her the Summer to see if she recovered any, but father time has caught up to this long time family pet.

RIP Sadie, you will always be a part of this family.
