Sadie Love

I have some very sad news.

My cousin Sadie is very sick. A few weeks ago she found out she has a tumor, and recently she's been getting more and more sick. This weekend now she can't walk around very well and her head is tilted and she's throwing up and leaking yucky stuff out of her bum constantly.

I think she's getting ready to go to the Rainbow Bridge. And that makes me cry.

She's had a good life - she 13 years old - but I'm going to miss her a lot. She was the first doggin I ever met face to face (Fig was not allowed to meet me face to face for a long time because she tried to kill me) and I LOVE her, even though she doesn't play much because she's an old lady.

We took this video this afternoon. She likes being outside.

Please keep us in your thoughts. This is the doggin that Massah and her family grew up with - Massah said she is the BEST dog... even better behaved than ME, if you can believe it! And Massah-in-law especially loves her, so if you're the praying kind please say a prayer because we're very sad here.

I'm sorry about your cousin Tadpole! I'm sure you'll see her again someday. I have a doggy sister and a kitty brother who I have never met who are waiting for me at the bridge. I'm sure I'll see them someday too (a looong loooong time from now, hopefully).

Oh Taddy,
First Oscar, now Sadie...what a sad weekend. I will keep Sadie in my thoughts and prayers. You take care of Massah...she is probably very sad right now.

How did the move go?

Lots of Licks, Ruby

P(ee)S: If you want a little chuckle to get your mind off things, go check out the entries in Nanook's close attention to the dashing doggin in the suit.

I'm so sorry my BFF Tadpole.

Oh no! Oscar has just passed away peacefully this morning & now Sadie too? What's up with today? Why is sooo many doggies leaving us today? This day is just a sad day. Today my mom saw an accident on the road & she saw(even me too coz I was in the car, coming back from training) a body of a man lying motionless on the middle of the road with blood streaming down from his head, and clothes torn. I think he got run over by the public bus...*sigh*

Love licks,

Extra love to you, Massah, and Fig Girl. We are still grieving over Oscar, and I can't imagine saying good-bye to someone else I loved right now.

We are the praying kind & we put sweet Sadie and your whole family in God's loving hands.

Your goober bud,

oh no, tad, i did not read your blog until just now. i am overcome with sadness over this news about sweet sadie.

my mom said she remembers when sadie was just a tiny little puppy in your backyard on dover. she was the cutest little puppy, and grew up to be such a loving and faithful friend. i always loved seeing her at auntie marge's house, too. she was very hospitable to me.

we are all very, very sad and are saying prayers for all of you, especially auntie leah. sadie is part of our family, too, and we love her so much.

puppy tears, coco
