    Today we had to let our beautiful Sara Lee go to the Bridge
    130C2496-BE08-4801-B83B-946B5B395EAA.jpeg
    Her back legs finally failed. We couldn’t bear to see her fall over any more
    Her heart was still strong but osteoarthritis was too much

    Sara was a parvovirus survivor. We were told she would not have a long life. But she had a wonderful, happy, and long life.

    Sara was loved by everyone that met her. Even her worst trait, begging for food at the beach, was tolerated. For years she was the neighborhood butterfly. She would visit everyone daily just to say, “Hi”, get a head scratch, maybe hang for a while and move to the next house.

    Being a rescue dog she had to be spayed before we could get her. While we had no intentions of breeding her she would have been a great mother. Whenever a litter of feral cats lost its mother, Sara would get out attention, try to mother them until we could get them to the shelter

    Watson and Armina don’t fully realize the situation. Watson, the protective brother, sat at the top of the driveway or at the path next door waiting for her.
    Armina knows something is off but it could be our mood she’s getting. She’s moping around and moving to the places Sara lies and laying there for a while.

    I apologize for the length of this tome but I needed to put this somewhere. My heart is empty, my soul is wrecked, and the sadness at our house in beyond huge.

    Sara Lee - what a great girl.
    I'm sure you hugged her as often as you could.
    Hug Watson & Armina a few more times for me.
    Peace - Deeve

    I’m sorry for your loss. It’s always sad when our special family members pass. Dogs live in the moment snd in a living family she had more special moments than she or her family could count.

    With sadness,
    JL

    Thanks
    Unfortunately I messed up the title. We aren’t sure of her birthdate but it was in 2006.
    I don’t think I can edit a title, damnit

    The pic was this morning when she got as far as she could get. I carried her over to the open French door so the breeze would be cooling

    Everybody doesn’t like something…but nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee.

    Sorry for your loss.

    Sorry for your loss, and especially sorry for Watson and Armina’s loss. It’s hard on the other furry ones, and you can’t explain it to them.

    I am so, so sorry that Sara had to leave. Dogs truly are God's gift to man. They love unconditionally, and give us so much more than we can possibly give them. May she rest in peace.

    That changes things! That is a good, long life!!! Doesn’t make it easier, but you definitely gave her a great run.
