Sage 10/4/2004 - 10/10/2016

So today we finally laid Sage to rest. The weather was perfect for a walk through the urban forest that has been her favorite place since we moved here to Rock Island Illinois 5 years ago where the majority of her ashes are now scattered.

Sage came to live with us in November 2005. When be brought her home we were told she they were rehoming her because she kept escaping the yard. We found out about a week later that she was reactive to everything the breathed air. Lol. She was was not a "safe" dog that liked to run. She was everything you think of as a Doberman only cranked to 11 and the knob broken off.

All that being said she was my first doberman and when she was alone with the family she was amazing. She could do anything except jump (she wouldn't even step up over a pool noodle) and aced 2 different basic obedience classes (muzzled for everyone's safety). She was the last one out of the bed any time we gave her the chance.

For a dog the came from a breeding that was all for color (she was that pretty fawn in my profile) she was healthy even if she was bald (lost her coat around 5 or so).

The last few weeks of her life she started having issues getting into the bed and up on the couch. She would walk but the 6 blocks to the restaurant and back were just to much for her. In the end she lost all control and feeling in he back legs and would not eat. She spent her last days on the couch with her people, even my son came home to say goodbye.

We brought her ashes home Halloween night and today took our final walk. As big a mess as she was she made me love her bred and I will always remember her.

Aww, what a nice remembrance. I felt like I knew her. Rest in peace pretty Sage. I am so glad she had a home such as you gave her.

Tears for you.

Sage is waiting for you, with friends, at the bridge.

Hopefully, my horses will be there.

Hugs.
