Sage (Lydeardlea’s Desert Song), Faith’s mother and a wonderful Search Dog (she visited the pentagon during 9/11, and also went to Iraq, and was also awarded the 2009 AKC A.C.E. Award for Search and Rescue), unfortunately was recently diagnosed with Lung Cancer. She is just over 10 years old. Luckily, since she attended the 9/11 disaster, she receives annual vet exams, so they think they caught it early enough. She will be undergoing treatments at the CSU Vet Hospital in Fort Collins. Please keep Sage and her owner Diane in your thoughts.
In happier news, Sadie did pretty well at the Southern Colorado Kennel Club shows. She didn’t get anything the first day but went BOS on Sunday. She and Pirate are attending the Eukanuba National Championship in Long Beach, CA. We decided to go, mostly because of Sage’s A.C.E. Award, which will be presented on national television, and we wanted to be there to watch in person. We also thought it would be really neat if her two grandkids were at the show competing in the breed ring. Wish us luck, we’ll need it!
