For Sage

I am sad to report that we have said good-bye to our dear Sage. I know I haven’t talked much about her; that’s because we knew that this day was coming and we were coming to terms with it.

Sage came to live with Jen 8 years ago when her family was unable to keep her. She was already a mature lady of 5 years at that time. It wasn’t an easy transition, because she went from only dog to a family with another dog and cats, but Sage settled in quickly and took it as her mission to keep everyone in line.

Lately things had not been easy for our girl. She was a dog that had been used to running and jumping, but was no longer able to do so. We focused on keeping her comfortable. This weekend she let us know it was time, and we accepted her decision.

Sage, you were a wonderful dog, and I look forward to the day that we once again run together on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

Good-bye dear lady.
Heaven offers you sweet peace.
You’ve earned it old girl.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  1. We are so sorry that Sage is gone. She was a beautiful lady and so fortunate to have had you, Jen, and the others as her family. We bet she is now at running and playing in that field with all the wild flowers just beyond Rainbow Bridge.

    Peace be with you.
