This afternoon, just an hour ago, we had to have Sadie put to sleep. It is so sad. She was such a good dog. Our vet said she was one of the best dogs she had ever worked with. Sadie was 14. We got her at the Graham, Texas, animal shelter when she was about 6 months old. She was beautiful and loving, a good dog for boys. John sat with her while the vet put her to sleep, and now he and Raf are digging her a grave. She was the best dog I ever had. She was my old brown Sadie Mae, and I loved her very much.

Sioux, please accept my heart felt sympathy. It's so sad when we lose a loved one. The four legged loved ones, with their unconditional love, become family after so many years. This will leave a big hole in your life. Sadie Mae was a beatiful dog, I'm sure she has left you with many happy memories.
(((Hugs))) to you

Sorry to hear of your loss, she was a gorgious dog.

She is now playing "at home" with all the other dogs.


Take care

Dear Sioux I am so sorry for your loss. I too put my dog of thirteen down last June. This is my first time without animals for over thirty years. I really miss my little guy, but know he is at peace. Maybe our two are frolicking together in a better place! Love to you in your time of grief!

Hugs Sherrie (giggles)

Dear Sioux...I posted this comment a couple of hours ago but it didn't get through.

Dear Sioux..I feel so sad fot you and Raf about your beloved dog, Sadie.
It took a lot of love on both of your parts to put the doggie to sleep. It took courage.
It is not an easy decision to make.

Did you know that "Sadie" means "Princess"?
And by the looks of this picture, that dog surely was royalty!

Please know that I am thinking about you and that I love you Sioux...Love Terry

Oh Sioux...I am so sorry. Sadie Mae was so beautiful and so loved. She will be a a part of you forever. All of us who have loved a pet know your pain. They are part of our families, our hearts. I cry with you dear Sioux...for all of our precious pets who have gone on to a place where they feel no pain and can run and play in sunshine and warmth.
Please accept my sympathies...hugs to you all.
I am so sorry about your dog. I sure you all gave her many good times in her life. Sorry again. connie from Texas

Sioux, I'm am so sorry for your loss. I've been there with my mother's dog & have been close with my own "boogie wiggles".

I am sure that you did what was in the best interest of Sadie, and that is our God given responsibility.

Hugs to you & your family at this sad time.
oh Sioux I am so sorry to read this. I know how heart wrenching it is to make that decision. Our pets are an integral part of our families, they ARE family and it's so hard to say goodbye. Our dog was 14 when we had to let her go as well....I am sending you a hug. Just know that Sadie was well loved and leaves a lasting memory.
