I lost my sweet Sadie girl one year ago today...I can't believe it has already been a year. In some ways it seems like it's been a lifetime and other days it seems like yesterday. I have dreams of her, me calling her name wondering why she won't come in. I call other dogs Sadie without even thinking about it. I'm sad and can't really explain to others why today is harder than most. I first visited this board when she died. I was so desperate for answers and comfort. It was so comforting to know other people knew how I felt. I wanted to write Sadie's story but I couldn't bring myself to do so. Over the last year, so many people asked me to share Sadie's story because it is so special. I hope I can bring myself to do so one day - perhaps on here. Thank you for opening your hearts and sharing your stories - it is so comforting. Lin, you are so special to encourage us with your notes and love. Thank you for all you do to provide comfort in times of sorrow. I know my sweet Sadie girl is playing with all her new brothers and sisters so I love being able to read all of their stories.
