Like a lot of children, Saige loved animals. She had a dog named Buckler. Me and my sister have animals that she knew by name too! I have 2 rabbits Kandy and Korn. She would call both “Kon”. They were terrified of her. Shauna’s dog Oakley loved Saige. She would call him “Okey”.
With Buckler, she would learn many things from our mother. Whenever Buckler would bark, Saige would sometimes say, “Shut up” or “NO”… and them babble on. Saige was really good at imitating what she learned. Of course most of the imitating was done on her own terms.
