January 17th was a very sad day

It’s taken me a month to write this because I start crying!  In January 2004 this little lady was given to me from my husband for a Christmas gift.

Sassy was born on December 8, 2004 and she came to live with us six weeks later.

Everyone instantly fell in love with her!

Due to the fact that it has taken me two weeks to get this far in the post I will just show you some of our pictures of her as she grew.  It’s just too hard to put into words what a special dog/pet/family member she was!!

Remember when . . .

Gyp was such a cute little puppy and full of life.   This was her in April at seven weeks old.  She loved torturing the cat and the cat returned the favor.

She is a little over six months old now and killed her first coon on Friday night.  The following pictures were taken Friday evening and you can tell how much she has grown.
