But it's not good news. He was hit by a car. The worst has happened but at least now I know...
Sitting here through uncontrollable tears, the last memory I have of him is the other night with me, Sage and Ivy in the cabin. Just the three of us, hanging out and I was on the floor with them. Sage came over and stuck his face right in mine, like he always did, remaining so still while he soaked in the attention he loved so much. We just had a really sweet moment where it was just the two of us sharing this intense affection. And then in an instant he was gone.
I HATE this feeling of feeling like your heart has been ripped out and knowing that I will never ever get to see him, touch him, hug him, throw the ball for him, run him in the team again, laugh at him as he barks like a maniac and vibrates as I harness him, watch him watch tv... just makes me so.... unbelievably sad.
This is the day I picked them up in Fairbanks. They were the happiest dogs and these two were totally attached to each other.
This is their first run with me. Ivy was figuring things out as she stands on Sage, but he was ok with that. He let her get away with a lot.
She's gonna be as bummed as me without her playmate around. Loki loved Sage too. In an instant the whole yard has changed. I'm so bummed I can't even explain it.
RIP Sage my sweet boy.
