Our memories of Sadie are too many to list here, but can be summarized simply. She lived to love and every moment of her life was dedicated to making us happy even at the expense of her own happiness. Unfortunately, this devotion left us with no clue how miserable she was on the day of her departure. She never whimpered or cried. She just gallantly suffered not wanting to make us uncomfortable. The most memorable thing about her leaving us was that the sky lit up with the Northern Lights on the night of her death. In our hearts it was God reaching down to receive our baby.|
I left for work in the morning like any other day. By 10:00pm Sadie was gone. It happened way too fast. I am suffering with all the wrong decisions I made in her final hours. Mainly because I never expected her to leave us. Up until the last minute, I thoroughly expected her to come home. She evidently had some bone splinters that were tearing up her insides. She tried all day to pass the bones. She was bleeding internally and only passed blood. She eventually stopped drinking and eating so dehydration was also a factor. We took her to two vets, but there was no help. The first vet helped her pass some of the bones, but he sent her home believing she would pass the rest through the night. The night only got worse. By the time we took her to the second vet she was on her way to heaven. When they tried to revive her, she let go. Bill said good-bye to her, I was too stunned. I believed that once we got her into some care everything would be alright. I regret not saying good-bye to her. She would have liked to see me at that time. I talked to her all the time when she was alive knowing she never understood a word I said, but knowing she loved to hear my voice. She would have liked to hear my voice in her passing, also. They teach us so much about love. . Thank you Sadie for sharing your life with us. We look forward to seeing you again.
