I almost didn't stop for her...but she was darting in and out of traffic and I knew her luck would run out..so I stopped. And I took her home. I knew she was special immediately. She was SO incredibly sweet. She wanted nothing more than to please. I was not the only one who was immediately enamored of her either. My good friend, Julia, fell in love at first sight. At the time, her service dog was having many issues and it appeared she needed to be retired. And when the meeting and greeting all went well..we were hopeful. Saydee mastered level I and II obedience, tricks class, got her CGC and was certified as a service dog. All in just 7 short months. We were and are so proud of her accomplishments. Such a fabulous girl.
A few days ago, julia called me with some concerns. And unfortunately, after consulting with the vet, it was decided that the only option for our beloved Saydee was to be put to sleep. SO today, I went with Julia and we held her while she went to sleep forever.
I don't think I have ever been as heartbroken as I am over this dog. I loved her more than I can say and I know Julia feels the same way.
Rest well and run free, beautiful. We love you!
