Default Sadie Girl

It has taken me a while to be able to talk and I am still not sure I am ready. It has been a rough few days and my heart has been broken. Sadie turned 17 on 12-31-14. She was still my wild crazy child. On 1-1-15 she lost the use of her back legs. Even with that she would not let it stop her. I tried bringing her inside my house and all she wanted to do was go back outside. I tried putting her in her house outside and she would drag herself out to sit in the yard. She was feisty! We made the decision and let her go on 1-2-15. We couldn't let that be her life. Sadie was so full of spunk that it would not be fair to her. The vet thought it was either a tumor on her spine or degenerative back. We could have tried a wheel chair but for those of us the knew Sadie she would rip it off and do what she wanted to do. That was my wild child!

She fell asleep peacefully while licking easy cheese (her favorite) and left me to try to pick up the pieces.



I ONLY WANTED YOU
They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

As for the other three it has been rough. It took almost 48 hours to get all 3 to eat and they are still not eating a lot. Kim at DogGone Natural is giving them Ana Flora Bereavement herbal oil and lots of treats. Yesterday I did not want Gibbs to see me clean out the house and remove Sadie's things so he went to have a spa day and to remove the 30 layers of mud. I then took him by DogGone Natural, and he hung out with us inside for awhile. Also what got all three to eat was Pork Fat. My husband was trying to get me to eat so he made me some southern comfort food and that consists of ham hocks. It is going to be a struggle so please forgive me if I am not on much or not chatty. I have plans in place if Gibbs has an issue (he has never been without Sadie). He will go stay with Aunt RheeAnna for awhile and run and play at the kennel (20 acres or running with other dogs) one of his favorite places. RheeAnna even came down to see Sadie, help us make a decision and to say goodbye on Friday. If anyone has any suggestions on how to help these three please PM me. Gibbs is still confused looking for her Sadie, BG is pouty, and Sonny my most sensitive of the three was the last to eat.

Aww that picture of Gibbs and Sonny is so sweet, though they both look sad. It must be so confusing for the 3 of them. I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you all get to feel a bit better soon. x

So sorry about Sadie. That must of been some record in Basset History--17 years. When my italian greyhound died, my dogs didn't seem to notice!!! She didn't die at home, but neither did Sadie? I could hardly eat for a week, but they (the dogs) didn't let breakfast go at all. Different dogs I guess. When I asked an 'expert' in greaving, she said that I wasn't upset! So wrong. Oh well different dogs, different reactions.

So sorry once again for your loss. Sadie lived sooooo long. And I know she had the happiest life any dog could ask for. A friend of mines boxer died last June. He lived to be 14! His brother died at 8. It's amazing how long some of these babies can live. Rest in peace sweet Sadie.

Christie..I am so , so sorry for your loss of Sadie...I dont visit this site often and when I saw the name Sadie my heart saddened...she lived such a long time for a basset but not a long enough time for a grieving owner...she was a darling and I hope it doesnt take too long before memories of happier times with her, help heal your broken heart...
