Today we said goodbye to Sadie, our pet for the last ten years.
We had Sadie before any of our children. Before we had children we treated her like our child.
She greeted all five of our daughters when we brought them home from the hospital. She traveled with us to the beach for many years. She made made four moves with our family. She was a great guard dog who kept lots of people at bay. She was wonderful with all of our children. We never worried about them with her. We have lots of great memories with her and sure are glad for the ten years we had with her.
After talking at length with the veterinarian, consulting with several people, crying, and crying some more, we made one of the hardest decisions we’ve ever made… “say goodbye to Sadie.”
We all sat on the floor in a small room in the veterinarian’s office and hugged her and talked to her as she went to sleep. And then we left the room.
It is a really sad night.
