Daddy's Girls

Brad's dog Sadie was the sweetest dog I have ever met. Last Tuesday, she passed away after 13 years of having Brad as her person. Even though I knew Sadie for a much shorter period of time, I was heartbroken. I loved how she "danced" back and forth on her front feet when I came home. Until she got too old, Sadie used to walk with me, and I took her swimming with the other two dogs. She did get to go on the first walk with Blair and me. I didn't know she was following us, and by the time I looked back and saw her waddling down the road, we were about to turn to go back home anyway.

She and Blair got to meet face to face, and Sadie gave Blair a good sniff. It looks like Blair is eying Sadie's bone! Blair could have tried to get it, but it would never happen. At 13, Sadie had lightening reflexes to grab and go if someone came near her bone!

I hate that you had to lose Sadie. She seemed like such a sweetheart. Glad Blair got to meet her!

Hi Ashlee!
It's Jamie (Dortch). I'm so sorry to hear about Sadie. My dog Brody passed away 3 weeks ago at 10 years old. We were also lucky that he could spend a few months with our new baby girl Abby. Please tell your husband that I am so sorry....Losing a buddy is always hard.
I have followed your blog for a while now and am constantly keeping Blair and all of you in my prayers. I'm always so thrilled to see how strong and healthy she is. :)
I hope that y'all will have a good week. It's good to know that Sadie and Brody are probably running around in heaven together :)
Love,
Jamie
