Goodbye Deogi

Today we had to say goodbye to Deogi.  Many of you know Deogi has had bone cancer and we knew this time would come.  When we knew we could no longer manage her pain effectively and she was no longer her happy go lucky self it was time to say goodbye. 

Deogi was one of the smartest dogs I have ever had.  She played ball, Frisbee, and soccer, running was one of her favorite activities.  She loved the heat and the snow.  She knew all kinds of tricks:  sitting up, spinning, playing dead, shaking, giving high five, rolling over, speaking.  Sometimes all at once.... You could set a treat on the floor and tell her to wait and she would just wait till you said it was OK (She would do the same with a ball too).  Once while showing some young kids all her tricks, Caelum said "wow it is just like a circus". 

She was a people pleaser for sure and always wanted to make you happy and she would try to figure out what that was.  She would look up at you with love in her eyes just waiting for you to love her back. 

Here are a few of our favorite pictures....

This below is when we first got Stormy

The grass is slippery when it snows  :-)  doesn't stop you from playing though

She would find the funniest places to take a nap

And running outside to play ball was the best....she lived for it...

It is hard to say goodbye but we know we made the best decision for her.  We will miss her greatly.
