Over twelve years ago we brought Sadie into our home. I was in a Petco looking for kitty litter and there she was. She was being adopted out. They said she was around two and had been found dumped way out in the desert. She was a skinny, goofy looking lil girl. She reminded me of a newborn foal with long skinny legs and huge paws. She had Shepard, Chow and Chesapeake Retriever in her. [heinz 57 I say] She fit in our family like a glove. Over night she grew up into an 80 pound big girl. She was our protector and our friend.
Sadie loved being outside and would sit in the middle of the lawn in the pouring rain or the 100 degree heat. She was the pack leader.
What I will remember most about her, is that she was gentle and a big love bug. She was and will always be close to my heart. She will be coming home again to sit next to Beau and Emmy on my mantle.
She is now free and no longer in pain. She can run again and I’m sure she is already chasing Beau. I know he met her at the bridge. She is forever young again.
We love you Sadie and miss you so very much. You will be forever in our hearts…
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Their bright eyes are intent; Their eager body quivers. Suddenly he/she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, their legs carrying him/her faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

My condolences to you and your family.<3
Tracy…..I’m so sorry about Sadie. It’s so hard to lose our dear pets! Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!!
Very beautifully said…Reminded me so much of my poor boy Mr. Sam, a Golden I rescued from the street long ago, who was the dearest, sweetest, most wonderful dog. He’s ‘s been gone six years now, but I think of him all the time. His sweetheart Volpino is now old and ill and won’t live much longer, but at least she’ll be joining him and my other pets long gone
Sadie was a love match and she will always be with you.
Oh honey I’m so sorry – it’s heartbreaking when our furry children leave us
Love and huge from Vicki ,Alice and the Biggie boy xxxxxxxxxxxx
Much love and hugs to you and your family. Sadie was a pretty girl, and her fur siblings are waiting for her…I really love the rainbow bridge poem and remember when our vet sent us that poem when our Bran-Bran passed on, along with Whiskers and Berger (our cats) when they passed too.
