NDR- Rest well Sadie

Postby maxs_mommy » Sat Aug 04, 2012 8:16 pm

We sent Sadie to the bridge this morning. For those of you who offered condolences on facebook, thank you. Sadie was my first adult pet which made the decision to let her go all the harder. She was 17, pulled from a city pound by S and then GF. I inherited her when she was 5. There are so many things I didn't even realize that she did like cry when her schedule told her it was dinner time, scent-mark my library books until I petted her, bark at the birds and keep the boys in line. Her downfall, ultimately, was time. Her body just shut down and she stopped eating, sleeping on the bed pillow or generally being the princess she was. I don't regret letting her go, she was painfully thin, it hurt her to walk or jump onto the bed and her hearing was gone. That was no way to live. I just have to hope there's somewhere with a warm patch of sun, birds to watch, sweaty t-shirts to roll in and open cans of tuna around until we get there for her.

I responded on FB but I'll say more here. I'm so sorry. It's hard, and even when it's time to let them go, it's hard. Hugs and good memories!

Sadie obviously had a wonderful life, and a long one too. RIP Sadie....you were well loved and will be sorely missed.

i'm sorry, Ashley. sounds like Sadie had a long and wonderful life with you. saying goodbye is always difficult but i agree, the first one hurts that much more. i hope your happy memories of her bring you comfort during this tough time. peace and hugs to you.

rest easy Sadie and know that you are sorely missed. when that white Boxer named Uncle Leo comes along to welcome you to The Bridge give him a kiss for me. you'll know it's him - he loves kitty cats and he's the gentlest soul you'll ever know.

I'm so sorry. Saying goodbye is never easy no matter how long or wonderful the pet's life has been. :(

So sorry you had to say goodbye to your dear companion of so many years. It's never easy, even when it is the right thing to do.

Wishing you comfort in many fond memories and wishing sweet Sadie sunshiney, catnip scented meadows to romp in.

Isn't that the truth. And going through it over and over again only shows the love we have for our pets.

You took good care of Sadie for a long time, and I'm sure she appreciated it. :)

And now I'm a little scared what I'll have to deal with at some point. Mieze is 14 and her 4 kids are 12. :(

I'm so very sorry. "Painfully thing" is ringing bells here, and I've got tears streaming.
Run free, Sadie. There are fluffy pillows awaiting you...... all those beautiful clouds above!

I'm so sorry Ashley. It just never gets easier to say goodbye. But remember one day, you will be saying "Hello, hello" and meanwhile Sadie is in good hands in a good place with her Creator and all the ODO family who went ahead of her. Prayers for you from here.
