Satch,we had 15 1/2 great years together. You were so strong for so long, always the alpha. On November 1, you told us it was time and it hurt to let you go. It still hurts as I write this.|
You and Sasha were my first Huskies and I remember your first days with me like it was yesterday. You and Sasha were inseparable. After walks you and she would splash in the pool. When I brought Flame home you taught him who was in charge and then the three of you were a great team of companions. I still have the video of you blowing bubbles from your nose while you slept in an inch of water in the pool.
Nothing was better than to be awoken by my Satch Alarm in the mornings as you would begin howling while Sasha and Flame joined in. You were always there for me.
The last couple of years got tough for you as you lost mobility, but you still went on our walks. You amazed neighbors with your toughness. I never needed a leash. You knew what to do. I miss our walks now.
That last week was so tough to watch as your health declined quickly. Wait for me at the Bridge. I have your ashes and paw print on display. I visit you everyday. Thanks for being in my life. I miss you so much.
NOV. 1, 2016--It's been one year since we were together, Satch. It's difficult to write this as your memory is still so fresh in my mind. You and Sasha were a great team and were so entertaining all the years we were together. I hope you know how difficult it was to let you go. Your strength was amazing and you were one of the toughest dogs I ever knew. Keep watch over us, you are still my forever alpha. I miss you, Satch.
Nov. 1, 2017 -- Two years ago I had to let you go. Your big, strong body had run it's course. I am still amazed at your determination to take walks with me until you were no longer able to. I took our original walk this morning at the old neighborhood. Wasn't the same. I hope Virginia is taking care of you, Sasha and Flame until we are together again. You are my family even though you aren't here at my side anymore. I will always miss you, big guy. You are my hero for toughness.
