It's 2 years on since I lost Fred, and not a day goes by where I don't think of him, and am still haunted by the many if's and buts. I can say one thing though, he loved his time at the hydro-therapy pool, I used to take him at least once a week, I'd only have to think about taking him and he'd be pulling his towel off the radiator and going nuts. I take Tom there now and again just for the fun and a little treat, he loves it too.

Sadie (Daisy's best friend)

It would have been Sadie's birthday this Wednesday 24th October she would have been 11 years old so i brought myself a nice sliver locket and i have a photo of Sadie and Meg in it so they will always be with me.

Birthday

Sorry if i go on about Sadie but i miss her so badly and it would have been her birthday today that makes it even harder.
I hope all the Angels at the bridge wish her happy birthday 11 years old today.

The poem is simply beautiful as is the picture of two most beautiful exquisite souls- your priceless companions !!!!- Rest in peace at the bridge dear Sadie. I feel your pain as many of us on the forum site have also lost our wonderful extraordinary companions, that never leave our hearts.

Sadie is beautiful in her picture and I know they are throwing a great birthday party for her at the rainbow bridge and all are eating cake. That locket idea is a great way to keep her close to your heart.

Yours is the first thread that i have read as a newcomer and already i'm in tears. I know how difficult it is when you lose a goldie - the pain and the heartache never really goes away it is always there. The only consolation that i can offer is that i am sure that Sadie had a wonderful life with you. I am so sorry to hear of your loss.

My Girls

Sadie and Meg enjoying Christmas and Sadie opening her presents and everyone's else if she had chance this was only last Christmas i am not looking forward to Christmas this year without them.
And this was Sadie and Meg together for the last time to be together on Christmas day just a few days before i lost Meg we knew we didn't have long with her so we brought her back from the vets for her last few days with us and she did enjoy herself she even wanted to go out for walks.
The girls were always together in the photo's i have they always seem to be together they loved each other very much.
Meg is in the front of the photo.

Thank you for sharing those wonderful pictures of your precious girls. Oh, I know how hard it is for you. There are some days when I am so sad, and miss Katie so much, that I just don't know what to do. Our Katie was only with us for one short year and this pains me and my husband very deeply. If anything, be happy that your girls had a long life with you that was filled with happiness and love. After losing Katie only 3 months ago, I am still devastated. Please remember that time will help to lessen the rawness of the pain you are feeling. I know it's not much of a consolation, but along with the memories and love we carry for them, time is really the only thing we have to make us feel better. I know it may be too soon for you, but have you though about getting another golden baby? I send you thoughts of comfort and big hugs...

Well I guess I needed a good cry tonight. I know the pain you are feeling. When I lost my poor Hooch boy I thought the pain would never go away. I am not sure where the thoughts of him turn from pain to just a smile when thinking about him but it will come. Anniversaries are still really hard. My thoughts are with you. I just loved all the beautiful pictures of the two.

Sadie and Meg

Thanks for all the kind words it does help to know someone else understands.
And i should have said it was 3 months not 4 months that we lost Sadie i still cannot think straight.
Also it would have been 10 years ago on November the 1st we picked Sadie up.
I remember it well it was a cold night and we should have got her the next day but we could not wait to get her.
It was sad as they had 7 children and another dog and the reason they did not want Sadie was because they said she was very destructive but she had been shut in a tiny kitchen and was not allowed anywhere else in the house.
It turned out it was the other dog that was doing the main damage they told us afterwards when i phoned them to let them now Sadie was ok.
And more or less wanted Sadie back and we take the other dog but we were Sadie's 3rd home and she was only 1 year old.
They other couple that had her said she bitten their son but all she did was mouth him like puppies do and bless her she did that right till the day before we lost her she was a puppy at heart all her life as they say Retriever's never grow up.
