Born July 4 1990
Went to the Rainbow Bridge Nov 6 1995
You where such a cute puppy, with your one blue eye. You looked like a small
dear running around the house. I still remember how sick you got when you
were six months old. You had such a high fever that wouldn't eat or drink.
We thought we were losing you. But then late on a Sunday night we were
holding you and trying to get you to drink using a spoonfuls of water. When
you took your first lap of water in almost 4 days, your mother and I cried
as you started drinking again. Even this didn't stop you from becoming the
big strong girl you were meant to be. The only side effect we noticed was
your inability to accept change. Like the time I came down the stairs with a
hat on. Even though you saw me go up, you barked and growled at me till I
took it off.
You and your sister Molly would like to get into mischief on
more the one occasion. The one that sticks out in my mind was New Years eve.
Your mom and I into town to celebrate and when we returned home you and
Molly had dragged the futon mattress into the middle of the floor and
proceeded to rip it to shreds. We came through the door and it looked as if
it snowed in the house. Molly new she did wrong but you had no conscience.
You came up to me as if nothing was wrong, looking for a pat on the head.
You were also known as my "trucker girl". All I had to do was sing Born To
Be Wild and you were at the front door waiting. We were watching a movie one
day and that song was part of the sound track you wouldn't leave me alone
till I stopped the movie and drove you around the block.
Then in the fall of
95 you started having sneezing fits. The vet said it was allergies. Soon you
were sneezing blood so we took you to a specialist and you were diagnosed
with a nasal tumor. We were hoping you would make it through Christmas. But
you got so bad so fast that we decided that we couldn't see you suffer
At around 8:30 am on Nov 6th we helped you make that journey to
the bridge. Your mom and I holding you and telling you what a good girl you
are and how much we love you. Though you're physically not here, you will
always be in our hearts. Even as I write this my tears still fall. I know in
my heart someday I'll be with you and Shiner Bear till then "Keep your motor
runnin, head out on that highway, looking for adventure, in whatever comes
We love you Sadie Rose
