There was great joy last week as we welcomed our 3rd daughter but our family also had a devastating loss and have been feeling so much sadness ever since. Our beautiful Sadie collapsed Monday night when Matt came home to let our dogs out while I was still at the hospital. He took her to the emergency vet and they found fluid around her heart and a tumor. After talking to the vet on call and discussing the options and outcomes it was decided to have her put down so that there would be no suffering. Sadie was with us for over 9 years. She was my protector and walking buddy. A ball or frisbee would keep her absolutely content for hours if you wanted to throw it that long. Our girls loved to play with her and just started dressing her up, she was so good with them. Our family is missing her very much and although I have wanted to write about this many other times I just haven't been in the right place emotionally to post about her - it hurts and effects each one of us so much. We will always love you and will miss you so much big dog - xxoo.

I'm so sorry! Wish I could come give you a big hug...though I know it probably wouldn't make you feel much better. I know I always was SO upset when my beloved pets really is heartbreaking.
