Sadie has left the building

Sadie, the Auxiliary Back-up Dog, died today at the age of 13.

We will miss Sadie, but we will never forget her. She was, I think, the sweetest dog ever. All she ever wanted was a belly rub:

A little more than a year ago, we gave Sadie to Cpl. Wolves and Married Into Wolves, because they wanted a pet but wanted to take baby steps. Both of them loved Sadie, so it was a natural fit. Over at the new place, Sadie enjoyed many an hour playing the sock game with Cpl. Wolves, who would taunt her with a sock while she tried to kill it:

She was very happy in her new home, back with the boy she loved so much and getting more attention than she had in years.

Unfortunately, she died today from cancer. I know she's in a better place. Her decline was rapid, and I don't think she suffered -- she went from apparently fine to not in just two weeks. She was a love muffin, and we will miss her. Best auxiliary back-up dog ever.
