I have good news and bad news to share....I'll start with the bad news....Our 13 year old Great Dane/Black Lab dog Sadie was not doing well at all when we got back from our vacation, and on Monday we had to put her down. :'( It broke all of our hearts....we had her since she was 8 weeks old. I still find myself thinking that I have to let her in/out, and am having a hard time getting used to life without her around. Since I've pretty much always been a stay at home Mom, Sadie has always been there to keep me company. I miss her so much!!
