I left the farm this morning to head back towards Nevada and then on to California. I really hadn't planned to stay on the Farm so long but it has been so relaxing and nice to be in one place for awhile. Also, Sadie became an issue.
Sadie just loved the farm. She was able to run free as she pleased or just lounge around near the house. She rarely ventured out to the road and if she did it was to follow me on my bike or go for a walk. Sadly, Sadie is not returning to the states with me. She didn't return from the field one night and I have combed the fields and nearby farms and no one has seen her. The general consensus that the coyotes or coons got her. She was tagged and "chipped" but to date I've no phone calls so I don't think she will be returning. I'm very sad to say the least, but I know her last days were spent doing what she like to do best..running and chasing critters and swimming.
