I don’t think that I could ever put into words how much Sage means to my husband and I. From the moment eleven years ago when she first sat in my lap and looked up at me with those sweet brown eyes, I have loved her with all of my heart. Our puppy kindergarten instructor called Sage a “very special little girl” and she truly was. Sage was particular about who she befriended and not everyone passed the test. The first time she met the man who would later become my husband; Sage went right up and enthusiastically let him pet her, which was unusual to say the least. Jason quickly came to love Sage as much as I did and she adored him. In addition to being a very intelligent girl, she had boundless energy for fun. No matter how much hiking/walking/running/ball playing we did, she was always ready for more. Besides playing, her favorite thing was just to be with Jason and I. She wanted to be right by our side all of the time. Sage was a petite girl, but she had the heart of a lion. She would put herself between me and anything she perceived as a possible danger whether it was a person or an animal. Sage loved to give us doggie kisses and always knew when we needed them the most. It was hard to scold her because she was so cute and she would often do something to make us laugh if she was in trouble. Her personality earned her many nicknames including Muffinbutt, Sagey, and Sagemus Prime. Jason and I have been heartbroken since we learned that she had a cancer no treatment could cure. Though we are thankful for the eleven years that Sagey was with us, we wish she could have stayed for the rest of our lives. We are grateful to Kathleen for helping us let Sage go to the Rainbow Bridge with peace and love.
Sage, we love you so much and we will miss you every single minute until we are together again.
Thank you for being the greatest best friend anyone could ever ask for.
Kelli Scott & Jason Greany
