A Very Special Girl Crosses the Rainbow Bridge
But for those of us who don't judge a dog by their cover, we could look into her golden eyes and see the girl for who she was, and we received a very special gift. We knew a loving, sweetheart of a dog, a girl who loved to cuddle and smooch, who loved her walks, and who actually loved everyone she met.
Sadie was eventually adopted by a volunteer who could no longer resist her charms, and she couldn't have found a more wonderful and loving home.
Elisa and Lou spoiled Sadie beyond words. They took her on vacation, making sure they only booked at hotels that would accept dogs. They prepared special food - chicken or salmon - every night for Sadie. They had get-togethers for the Sadie Fan Club. But most importantly, they coddled and loved her through her chemotherapy treatments, fretting whenever she was sick and celebrating the days she felt good.
Each and every day Elisa, Lou, and Sadie had together was a blessing. I think Sadie would agree that a few years in a shelter was worth the wait for the time she had with her amazing mom and dad.
We love you Sadie; we'll miss you very, very much. (Photos: Oda Erstling)
