#151182 Sadie 12/2/96 to 4/16/14

She was 17 years old and was very healthy until last fall.  She was the very first IG we saw and fell in love with her and the breed at first sight.

We lost our sweet little Sadie today.  She never quite recovered from a horrible bout of Pancreatitis last fall. 

Here are a couple of pictures from her younger days.

We adopted her on 5/4/2003 and she almost made it to her 11th Gotcha Day.

Gerri, we all know how much you and Gracie loved each other. My heart is breaking for you. I wish there were words or something we could do to help you through your pain.
RIP, Gracie.

I'm so sorry, Karen. I love that last picture. It is so hard to say goodbye. I'm sure Ricky and Cherry had a wonderful reunion at the Bridge. You gave him the best 7 years of his life.

Another fantastic Gwen portrait!! Once you get Riley on the wall, please take a picture of them together for us Deb.

Good idea, Karen! That is beautiful, Deb. She really caught Riley's personality in the eyes.

I'm glad that the vest and sweater fit. I used Sadie as a model - they are the same size and color. So, if it fit Sadie, I hoped it would work for Boo.
The bully sticks almost didn't maek it into the package. Patti stole them when my back was turned and tucked them untouched in her crate for a snack later on.
Have a wonderful Christmas!

It's amazing how they know the package is for them. Annie wouldn't leave ours alone.

What a wonderful box of goodies! You can see how much they loved their new toys.
The bracelets are gorgeous!

Gerri and Gracie, thank you so much! You were the best Secret Santa! The girls are going to have many happy moments playing with all of their new toys. They agree with Gracie that the Reindeer Treats are the best ever!

I hope you both have a wonderful Christmas! You've definately made ours very merry!
Merry Christmas!

Here is the final tally! Gerri, thank you so much! We were all spoiled and love everything you and Gracie picked out for us.
Sadie watched from her bed, so we piled all of the dog toys and treats in with her. The girls were finally able to taste those yummy Reindeer Treats. You can see Sadie munching on hers in the bed. BTW, I love the little bag they came in. Also, they love Charlie Bears!
The second picture is the people treats. The cute bag is in the picture with Sadie. I'll get a better picture of it later. I love it!

Tucker says, Thank you very much, Auntie Gerri and Gracie! I'll try the toys out tomorrow and I promise to share with the other kitties, too. Posted Image

While the girls were playing with their goodies, we opened the people presents. Gerri, I love the picture frame. I'll post a picture later with it filled. I'm going to have last years Christmas picture enlarged and put it in the frame. There were two sweet little ornaments - a star and this sleigh with the girls' names on it.
Also, an Italian Greyhounds spoiled here sign and a beautiful tote bag with a sweet IG on it.
Alex was really interested in the chocolate covered pretzels. He's from PA, too, so it was very special for him.

Sadie is posing with her new friend the chimp who is holding a new very soft blanket for the girls. I know she is going to really love the new blankie.
Mariah was so excited and took every toy that was opened and ran away to try it out. She was in a frenzy - there werre so many great new toys and not enough time to try them all. She really loved the rabbit but once the first Giggly toy came out, she and Patti had a few words. Patti won and started playing with it. It is the neatest toy - it makes a strange giggling noise that sounds like it's underwater and was very popular. They were so happy when I opened up two more and all of the younger girls had one of their own,
