9/8/17 The day we found you in the woods we knew you had found a good home. You always were Dad's shadow. You truly were his girl. You got sick on us a few weeks ago. The vet here could't help you which is why we took you to Jeff. If anyone could help you it was him. We just didn't get you to him fast enough. You took your last breath this morning. We are so sorry for that. We sincerely believe you were tired and just wanted to be at peace. Simon and A.J. are sorry they didn't get to say goodbye. Somehow I knew when I kissed you goodbye last week and you went with Dad, that I wouldn't ever see you again. Look for Gershwin and Mickey at Rainbow Bridge. They'll be watching for you. And as I've told them, every so often look over at the bridge, the day will come when dad and I join all of you and we'll cross rainbow bridge. We're so sorry we lost you. Know we loved you uncoditionally. Dad says you were such a gentle little dog and you were his. Its going to be hard moving forward without you.|
9/24/17 We brought you home this week Sadie. Your ashes Dad buried near the memorials for Gershwin and Mickey. You paw print in the plaster of Paris is a reminder of where you are now. Dad didn't want any help digging your grave. He said you were his girl and his responsibility to lay you to rest. We asked Jeff is he could tell us what happened and he said he could see it in your eyes. You were just to tired to fight anymore and God decided it was time he take you home. I gave your bed and your winter coats to the puppy across the street. I know you would have been fine with that. You never liked any of your coats anyway. I don't know if we will continue to live here after winter is over or not. But if we move your memorial paw print will travel with us right along side Mickey and Gershwin's memorials. You will always be with us. We miss you terribly, but we understand you had to go. We'll love you always. Mom. 9/8/18. Sadie you've been gone one year today and it seems like only yesterday you were here with us. Simon has been very sick off and on this year. He's only six but sometimes we wonder if we're going to lose him soon too. A.j. is well albeit his allergies. We had to let gizmo go to be with you and Mickey and Gershwin. He was nineteen and it was getting very hard for him to walk. The vet told us it was time. His quality of life was gone. Chloe and Catherine are still with us and don't like each other any more now than a year ago. We hope you've made good friends at rainbows bridge and you have found Mickey and gershwin. Remember we'll always love you and will always miss you. Be a good girl. Love mom.
