Thanks for 10 great years my sweet Sadie

My baby girl left us last night two weeks after her 10th birthday and 4 days before Christmas. She only threw up two weeks ago and when we took her to the vet, the cancer was already spread throughout her body. My wife started crying right there but I told her we need to take the time we have left and celebrate her life with us. As it turned out, it was two weeks. These last two weeks have been filled with walks in the park, trips to petsmart, a bath, and even professional pictures made, in what turned out to be her last good day with beautiful weather. Sadie was such a good girl and she loved every minute of it and didn't even slow down until two days before she departed. I used that time to say goodbye so when the time came I gave her some sweet kisses and told her to go and join her brother, Cali, that she lost 4 years ago at the bridge. my wife could not leave her all alone and was receiving kisses as she faded away. It can not get more heartbreaking or sweeter than that. I will miss her dearly but I am content in the fact that she loved us, loved living here with us and had a wonderful life. How can you not be at peace with that? I am glad you all are here so we don't have to go through this alone. any comments or questions would be appreciated.
Fred

I agree completely with Carolina Mom - every day we get with our dogs is a special gift. It sounds like you treasured yours with Sadie. I'm so sorry for your loss - it must be especially difficult around the holidays. I hope you get extra time with your family to get through this together.

Run free, play hard, sleep softly sweet Sadie.

Thank you Sydney, Carolina and Maddie's moms for your kind words. As soon as I start to get sad, my 4 year old golden comes around the corner and I forgot that I still get to hold him and tell him how much I miss her and I know he understands. I am not sure that he knows where she is but I will help him and in turn, I know he will help us.

So sorry for you loss of Sadie, I can see how much she meant to you. It sounds like those last 2 weeks especially were full of special memories that you can treasure forever. She'll always be with you in spirit!

I'm so sorry for your loss of sweet Sadie. That is the very hardest thing about loving our dogs as deeply as we do, saying goodbye.
I'm sure she's romping around green fields with Cali. ♥

So sorry for your loss of Sadie, it is so hard letting them go, but when we send them to the bridge we know that they will feel no more pain, that is for us to feel as the ones left to grieve.

Sadie will now be running free with Cali, and making many friends.

Run free play hard and sleep softly Sadie

I miss the plaintive pleading wail,
I miss the wistful loving glance,
I miss the circling welcome dance"

I am so sorry to hear about Sadie. She must have been a beautiful girl. I lost my Oakley to hemangio Nov 23rd - totally blindsided by it and he was gone 3 hours after having been diagnosed. I was like your wife - I would not leave Oakley alone and he went to the bridge with me hugging him, and my face laid on his cheek whispering to him how much he was loved. I am having a very difficult time, so reading your words and trying to focus as you are on the good times and all of the days they were with us that we will always treasure helps me. Thank you for your words of wisdom. Rest peacefully Sadie. Carol
