Satchel was the most loving shepherds anyone could have ever asked for. He was my best buddy an did everything with me including playing at our pool with my family including my other shepherd Cecelia.

All the neighbor kids played with him an he loved it. He was always happy an fun to be with. He was always ready for a good time and made you play with him.

No more pain buddy - your in heaven an we will be together again. You can be with your buddies Smokey the rabbit, Brutes an Missy The cats,Cindy an Seeka our other shepherds.

We found Satchel at a local shelter after Seeka Had passed away. I Knew immediately that he would be a great dog an we both loved each other the minute he came over to me an I picked him up.

We later found out that his hips were not formed properly but it did,t seem to bother him an we had nine good years with him. January 2011 we found a lump on his throat an it turned out to be Lymphoma.

We kept him as comfortable as possible an he still had a lot of good days on his vitamins an steroids. He gradually got weaker an weaker an passed away. R.I.P. Satchel we Love you. Arlen,Barb,Danielle,Alex.
