Sassy goes to the bridge

Dad's parent's dog Sassy went to the bridge on Wednesday afternoon at 3:35 following multiple system failure. She was 16-1/2 years old, and a very good friend to Dad's dad. She was supposed to be Aunt Kelly's dog, and she was, but there was no denying the connection to Pop either. Mom and Dad have always commented on what a difference Sassy made for him. Sadly, she passed the day before Pop's birthday.

Sassy on her favorite spot
This was Sassy's favorite spot. Although I never met her, I could tell she had good taste, because I know I would have also sat on the landing of the stairs where I could watch everything that went on in the house too.

Hey lady....where's my turkey???
Sassy had a huge smile, and loved Mom, although Mom is not a "dog person." Sassy liked to lick Mom's toes, which did not always make Mom happy, but it was how she showed her love of Mom (or maybe Mom had dirty toes). Sassy was also a veggie dog. She loved to snack on radishes and baby carrots. I don't get that.

Happy Sassy
I'm sure Sassy is playing with Fluffy (Mom's cat-who-came-before) at the Bridge. They got to meet once, when Mom and Dad were moving to Iowa. I think there was some barking and hissing, but I'm sure they're getting along fine now.

Sassy, you will be missed. Rest in peace sweet little one.
