I remember the day I brought home you and Satch. I had you both on my lap while I drove home from Virginia's house. You both slept most of the way. You were 8 weeks old. Seems like yesterday. As you got older you were so entertaining with your playfulness. We would come back from walks and you would go to the plastic pool on the patio and splash water on yourself, along with anyone nearby. Water went everywhere and it was hilarious to watch.|
When you slept you would often chase rabbits in your sleep and your legs would move as you pursued your target. I loved having you curl up on the bed with me.
You did a great duet with Satch when he began his morning ritual of howling as my alarm clock for minutes at a time. If you were outside, a siren would get you both going again. I miss that now.
When we went to the park it was fun to watch you interact with the other dogs. Your first move was to give them kisses on the nose. You were such a sweetheart. You, Satch and Flame would walk and run around the perimeter of the park, checking out everything. Watching you run with your little pitter-pat gait was the best.
When you were diagnosed with cancer it ripped apart my insides. I saw your health decline slowly, and then the seizure. You didn't deserve that fate.
(April 16, 2014) Today would be your 14th birthday. I lost you just 12 days before we could celebrate it together. I'm so sad you aren't here with me and your brother Satch. Happy birthday, my little girl. Wait for me.
(April 4, 2015) Hello my little girl. This is such a sad day for me. Your brother Satch is laying here by my feet right now and we both miss you so much. I'm looking at a photo of you when you were 11 weeks old. I wish we could go back and start over again. We were together a long time but it never seems enough. Run free like a Husky runs and save some playing for me again when we are together. Cancer is a horrible thing and you didn't deserve it. Enjoy the Bridge and keep waiting for me.
(April 4, 2016) Another sad day for me,Sasha. I took the walk around the block we did so often today, and I carried your leash and collar. You were here in spirit. I miss you so much. Your brother Satch is now with you at the Bridge. You two can play together again. You and Satch were my first Huskies and I'm so glad you picked me to be the home for both of you. Sasha, you were such a sweetheart. We will have a great reunion some day at the Bridge. Be happy, my little girl!
(April 4, 2017) To say I miss you is an understatement. I have many photos I look at to remember you. But you are in my heart always. I took our walk around the block with some of your fur I saved. It's sad to take that walk without you, Satch and Flame. We have Noelle now who reminds me a little of you. Teach her from heaven how to be like you. You were such a sweet girl everyone loved. I wish we had another 14 years and more.
(April 4, 2018) The sweetest dog to walk the earth. I wish I could still get the wet kisses you enjoyed giving everyone and all the dogs you encountered. You and Satch were great companions and filled the huge void I had when I lost Sybil. I hope you are enjoying the Rainbow Bridge while you wait for me. I will take our walk today, as usual. I miss you so much. A sad day that I try to make better by remembering you. Thank you for being with me.
(June 2019) Sasha, I miss you so much. You and Satch were such great companions. There were no others like you two. Please watch over me from your place at The Bridge. You were always there for me and I need all the help I can get. I wish so much that you were still here, being your goofy self and I miss your howling with Satch. April 4 is always a sad day for me. I'm sorry it took so long to write this. I will do better because you were the best.
(June 2020) Sasha, I am not only sad thinking about the fact you are no longer here, but also because I am so bad at keeping this journal in a timely fashion. I am so sorry. You deserve way better than that. It is so interesting now that we often see our Noelle and compare her to you because she looks alot like you in some ways. But you are Sasha and will never be replaced. I miss you and I will take the walk we took with Satch around the old neighborhood tomorrow morning in your honor. I hope you are at The Bridge having fun with Satch and Flame like you did when you were here. Wait for me little girl. Take care until then.
(April 4, 2021) I can't believe it's been 7 years since I had to let you go to The Bridge. It seems like just a short while ago. I wish by some miracle you and Satch could live forever. I sometimes look at old videos and photos of you and Satch just after I brought you home from Virgina's kennel. You were such a character with your brother. We had namy good years and you were such a great companion. You and Satch set the standard for all the Huskies that have come after you. You are free of the cancer and confusion you had to deal with. I feel horrible that you had to live with that and I wish I could have taken it away from you. Keep waiting for me and we will have a great reunion some day with you, Satch, Flame and all the others waiting with you. I will always miss you so much, my sweetheart.
