January 17th was a very sad day

It’s taken me a month to write this because I start crying!  In January 2004 this little lady was given to me from my husband for a Christmas gift.

Sassy was born on December 8, 2004 and she came to live with us six weeks later.

Sassy was born on December 8, 2004 and she came to live with us six weeks later.

Everyone instantly fell in love with her!

Everyone instantly fell in love with her!  She was also the runt of the litter.

Due to the fact that it has taken me two weeks to get this far in the post I will just show you some of our pictures of her as she grew.  It’s just too hard to put into words what a special dog/pet/family member she was!!

  3. Oh Rita and to think I was able to talk to her when I was there. It’s so hard losing our pets they become part of the family unit. Cry my dear friend. It is ok. She came into a warm loving home and was a very happy girl. Much love. Imagine me giving you a strong hug.

  4. I am so sorry to hear about Sassy… it is so painful to loose a member of the family. I dread and try not to think about loosing our 3 boys… I just hug them and pet on them a little more when those worries pop up. I want as many positive memories as I can get. I pray God will help you though this trial and bring you some sort of peace about it, even though that seems so hard. I am so sorry for your loss.

  5. So so so very sorry for your loss. No matter how many animals we farmers have there’s always special ones who tear at our hearts when we lose them more than others. What a loving home and life she had!
