Greetings from Sadie!!

Sadie Rain
May 1995- October 2006

I am sure you out there in blog land are wondering who I am. Well I am Sadie Rain!! I was mama of the house for all the 4 pawed kids. I had a great life with my family and I treasured every minute with them. Now I watch them from the Rainbow Bridge. I was mom and dads original baby. Yep it was just us then it happened....the hooman pups came along. My job changed immediatly but my spot on their bed didn't.
I became very loved by all 4 of my hoomans and the feeling was mutual. I would be vewy vewy protective when my daddy was not home. I also had to babysit our hooman boy pup a lot. He was fast and curious. At 1 1/2 he could climb the fence so I would have jump it to take care of him. He never did get very far because I always barked and made a fuss then led him home. He would laugh and laugh. Mom and I always wondered who was going to have the 1st heartattack over that little guy. Our girl just dressed me up in doll clothes. She was easy, even painted my nails.
The sad day came when I was diagnosed with cancer. The promise was made years ago never to do any "heroics" as mom calls them. She worked for a vet and saw just to many sad things. So we went to see our friend the vet, who I really love. Not only was my family with me but my friends that I had known for years. My vet family you could say. Well it was time to say good-bye and it was pain free for me and off to the Rainbow Bridge I went.
Then I saw my family was grieving and so very sad. But, they all said NO MORE DOGS!!! I just couldn't believe what I was hearing, this couldn't be true. My hooman pups love doggies. So I had to get my friends up here at the Rainbow Bridge busy. We had to hatch a plan and make it work. We had to get a dog in that house immediatly!!!!! The tears had to stop. So we all got busy and guess who we found. WILLOW!!!
I check in on my family when I am not in the great big bird field chasing dove or quail. I just met my grandma here a few months ago. There was a big group of us who new she was coming to our side so we met her and boy was she happy to see us.
Willow has been a great therapy dog for my family. She is doing pawsome and their hearts are mending fine. Thank you to all of you for being her friend. She is a little young and still may need some guidance so thanks to all her bloggie friends for being so nice. You all are PAWSOME!! I may stop by every now and then to check up on her and my kiddos. This is Sadie Rain signing out for now, peace be with all of you and just know that at the Rainbow Bridge we get to eat snackies all the time and we don't get fat!

Hi Sadie! We wish we could have met you! Have you met Queen Pockets at the bridge yet? She was our pawrents' very first Airedale and she went to the bridge a little over 6 years ago. You did a very good job of finding Willow for your family! Have fun up there!

Oh Sadie, you're a German Shorthair Pointer??? Mama & Papa's 2nd & 3rd dogs were those. You are so bootiful. Jade was a female they rescued. Then they let her have one batch of pups. And of course Mama & Papa had to keep a boy pup, Jack. They both lived normal time span for that type of doggie & Mama & Papa sent them to the bridge pain free too. Then Mama & Papa both said NO MORE DOGS. Took YEARS before the sorrow went away & then they wanted a doggie again. We're glad your hoomans got Willow too. Have fun up there with Jade & Jack.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Eat on my friend! Eat on!

Okay.... I KNOW how special you are!!! You should have given a warning at the beginning of your posting Sadie. It is a real gully washer!!! I remember hearing the family say NO MORE DOGS too!!! You did a PAWSOME job convincing them to get Willow. Good choice by the way. I hope that you're keeping an eye on Mr. Asta Miles, Otis, and Marcy Girl for me up on the bridge. They've been there a very long time, yet I think of all of them daily. Give them hugs and kisses for me and one for yourself!!!

Love ya,
Grandma Sherry
