March 17, 2011Sage, my fishing buddy

We learned that Sage, our 12 year old black lab (and fishing companion), has cancer. We took her to the vet on Monday to have a lump checked out and yesterday she had it removed (thanks Heather). She's handling things like a champion despite the stitches and large bandages around her abdomen. I'm not sure how's she's going to handle not being able to do anything active for two weeks!

Hopefully by having the tumor (and some muscle) removed, we caught things before they spread, but we won't know until results come back. Her spirit has been great and apparently her blood work looked great. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hope she'll come out ahead and be able to get in another fishing season. I can't imagine exploring western waters without her. Here's a shot of Sage supervising things along the Yellowstone last fall.


March 17, 2011Best wishes to Sage and the family. Having had the opportunity to see her stream side, in action, I can attest to the notion that their truly is no finer companion. She's the kind of fishing buddy who's always up for one more cast and probably exhibits better fly fishing etiquette than most anglers I come across on the water. I look forward to wetting some flies with you both very soon! Cheers, Brandon
March 18, 2011Brandon, Thanks for the kind words. Sage appreciates it and is looking forward to showing you where more of those cutthroat trout live. Hope things are going well with you. Take care my friend.
