All in the Family


German Shepherd Dog

Sage was my birthday present in the summer of 06. She was an energetic girl. In order to entertain herself she would run around chasing after her shadow. The stinker would often pretend not to hear me, and run of chasing her shadow instead of coming over. She hated to be locked up.This had nothing to do with how she was handled as a pup. It was all in her personality. She loved the outdoors. Because she had wolf blood in her, her bark wasnt that of the typical Shepherd. It was a woo, woo, woo instead of a bark. :) She was extremely independent. She was not a cuddler, but a watcher instead. The pictures I have of her make her seem regal. She wasnt!!! She was my crazy sily girl. Playing tug-o-war with her sister Yodi, teasing her brother Kai, she was a real trouble maker. She could always make me smile. One trick she would always do was give me kisses. I would hold out my hands and she would jump up and lick my face. She was always happy too. She was at her absolute best when there were little kids around. I was always amazed by how gentle shed suddenly become. She would hold oh so still and carefully lick their faces. Too sweet. The pictures of her were taken when she was about 1 year old. Still a puppy! :) I lost her when she was just a little over 2 and a half. I had no warning. Her stomach flipped. We rushed her to the animal hospital as fast as we could, but, we were too late. Her stomach had begun to burst. It was painful, but I knew she had nothing but happy memories of Earth. I smile when I think of her....... I know shell never have to be locked up ever again. And someday when I see her, we can run free with all our animal friends together.

I'm sorry. Her story is very heartwarming...I am on the verge of tears. You must have loved her very much. She sounds like she had a very strong, kind, and mischievous personality. I will never forget her even though I didn't meet her in person I feel as though I have known her for a long time. You do such a good way of pulling people into the stories of your dogs. I'm sorry she had to die at such a young age. She was a beautiful dog. I love her ears and tail. Once again sorry. :(

Oh my gosh! I am so terribley sorry about your beloved loss. Her story was so meaningful, and made me want to cry thinking about it. She seemed like the best dog ever. And your compassion for her is great. It's super hard to loose a dog, especially at a young age! Her condition is really rare. I was seriosley thinking: Why her? She seemed like she loved life, and was happy. But no. Life just has taken a turn for the worse. And she got that RARE condition. I miss her like I has known her for the years she as alive. Again, i'm sooo sorry about Sage. P.S I love that name so much! Check out my dogs, and please comment on them. Thanks! :) ♥ ♥ :)

I just had to comment again... Sage... Why you? You seemed so happy and were thankful with the gome you had.. But *sigh* I don't really no :( It's just way too hard to keep on going. So sorry! Check out my two Australian Shepherd girls, Amber and Bella, and please comment on them. Thanks! :) ♥ ♥ :)
