Miss Sassy-2. 100_0100our girl I lost tug of war

On September 28, 2003 a skinny little ball of fire came into our lives. We made a promise to her that she would be happy here for as long as she lived. She was born on March 3, 1995 and lived her life, until she was rescued, in a cage giving birth to litter after litter of puppies until there was nothing left of the wee girl. She was rescued by some sweet ladies who allowed her to come and join the Williamson Clan. She arrived here via a Waggin' train and everyone who came in contact with her fell in love with her. She had the most soulful eyes. Today I took her to the vet. She just seemed out of sorts the past couple of days. Nothing you could put your finger on but was very uncomfortable this morning and would not eat or drink and could barely walk. X-rays showed she was full of cancer. It was over taking every organ. She looked at me and a tear fell from her eye. My little girl who had been so lively was ready to go and left peacefully while I held her. The others have said their goodbyes and she will be buried in the garden outside the window. Run through the meadows sweet girl. You were loved by many.

Oh Dayna, I am so sorry!!! Miss Sassy had a wonderful family who she knew loved her through the last years of her life. I'm sure she forgot all about the bad times. I'm crying with you today...

Oh how sad for you. I know she felt your love and was sad to be leaving you and the rest. It is a special person who rescues animals and you are more than special. Love and hugs to you!

a big HUG,

Dayna, So very sorry to hear of Miss Sassy's final journey across the Bridge. It's so hard to let them go, but they do tell you when it's time. I came across the bundle of cards we got when Max left us two years ago and lost it all over again, but that made room for our precious rescues DarbyDoo and Fiona. They do FIND you, too, and Miss Sassy was where and with whom she deserved to be. Blessings and peace.

I am crying,too. I am so sorry for your loss, Scottie. I have always had at least one beloved pet and I know how they wrap themselves around our hearts. It hurts so much. She had a wonderful home and knew how much you loved her.

OMG! This is so devastating to read. My heart so goes out to you, Danya and family, as we are dealing with a similar situation right now. I've been chronicling our Max's progress these last several days on my blog: http://scarf-it-up.blogspot.com

Ours is terminal too, but he rallied a bit today. But I know the end is near, so I am crying for you and your sweet girl and for our sweet boy.

Blessings,
Louise

Oh Dayna, I couldn't even get past her sweet picture without crying. Many, many hugs to you on your loss. I know how painful it is to lose an animal friend. They are pure love and will always be remembered for the wonderful but short time they spend with us. Love and peace to you, Liv

Oh Dayna, that photo of Miss Sassy sporting her beautiful bonnet will always make me think of her...it is so classic Sassy! I am so very sorry to hear that she is gone. I know this is so hard, but I know that all the treasured thoughts of her will see you and the entire Williamson Clan through! I am sure the years she spent in your home were like a dream to her, after having such a cruel and miserable start in her life. Bless you all and sending warm hugs from the Bristolwood!!!!

I am so so sorry to hear of Miss Sassy's passing. The loss of our little furry family members is devastating. I am so glad that you came in to her life though to let her know what it's like to have a loving family.

Mama Z said...

I'm so sorry! What a lucky dog to have you cross her path and save her from an awful life! I'm sure it was hard for you to say goodbye!

Gayle said...

I glanced down and saw the cute little dog, and paused to read the story. That caught me so off guard and brought tears to my eyes. I am so sorry for your loss, but so glad she had a happy home her last few years.

Yarni Gras! said...

what a beautiful eulogy to your sweet Sassy. It is evident she was very much loved. You gave her a new home and a new life. You should be proud of yourself. Tears are always needed at times like these as good friends are hard to find and even harder to let go........
