I am so sorry for your loss. To loose a beloved pet is hard.
Oh this made me cry. My Eyore is 13 and while he's still doing great, I will one day really really miss him. So sorry for your loss. When I lost my chihuahua (who was my baby) I went out same day and picked out our now four year old. That new life that a puppy brings brought joy to both us and to Eyore (our lab) who was missing her.
I am SO sorry. We recently lost our own little Gucci. Thoughts and prayers with your family
I am so sorry for your loss. We just lost our beloved 13 year old Lhasa Apso Nov 9, and it still seems so fresh. Pets complete our family so much and I am sure everyone's thoughts are with you.
Elaine, Just wanted to let you know that I am so sorry for the loss of your friend Sadie. As a lifelong doggie lover myself I know they are Family. May God grant you and your Family solace. xox
I'm so sorry for your loss of Sadie. Please know there are many of us who understand your broken heart.Sincerely,Laura
I'm so sorry - I know how hard it is to lose a dog and my heart goes out to you. My two current dogs are getting up there in years and I dread this day.
So sad for you. Our dog is 14 and we know the day will come sooner than we'd like. God Bless you for loving Sadie for such a long time. I know she appreciated it.
I am so sorry for you loss. I have cats and have lost one. They never leave your heart. It helps to so something in their memory. Plant something in the yard in memory of your Sadie. Or make a donation in their name.
So sorry to hear about Sadie, we are thinking about you and your family.
My heart goes out to you. I'm familiar with your sadnes. Thinking of you.
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. It's terrible when one of these little member of the family goes away.
ohhhhhhhh is all i could say....i don't know you but you have no idea how my heart goes out to you...i am so very sorry for your great loss. what a sweet sweet looking dog, i am sure she had a fantastic life.
I am sorry for you..This is a sweet face~
Oh my heart breaks...we lost our beloved Tabasco just a few days short of his 14th birthday...I held him when he was 1 day old!!! He was my baby..all of his life he gave me everything he had. Then he saw me through a divorce I did not want...he loved with all his heart. I am sooooooo sorry and am mourning youir Sadie as my own. Cry, mourn, it would be sadder if you did not! I pray for you to feel peace.
It's so sad to hear the news of Sadie...All my love to you and the family.
We understand your grief. You have lost a very importamt member of your family. Condolences to you, Brian and the kids. We lost our "joey" just shy of 15 years.
Elaine, I am so sad and sorry for you. Sadie was a wonderful dog and I know you will miss her horribly. She was such a close and loyal companion for you . Your post brings tears to my eyes.
I had a Sadie too. It's been 10 yrs now that she's been gone. I'm so sorry for you loss.
We lost our baby boy, Bandit, last year. Understand your sadness, and am sorry for your loss. Blessings to you and yours.
I don't know you but know your loss. so sorry for you and yours. sadie is now in heaven watching you.
I'm very sorry. It really hurts.
So hard, Claire. So many of us have been through this, and I add my condolences to this long list of caring readers. Take good care of yourself.
ahhh.... I am sorry for your loss, I know you have a big hole in your heart.
wow, looking at that face, with those eyes and that smile, I can only imagine how huge the hole is that she has left. peace be with you, and thanks for sharing your beautiful Sadie with us
Sorry to hear about Sadie. I remember her What a neat pooch. Our Penny turns 15 on Valentines Day and some days are better than others for her. Dogs are the BEST! Hang in there Elaine.
So sorry for your loss. Savor the memories....
Our hearts are holding you close. We have tears down our cheeks and huge lumps in our throats. God Bless dear Sadie and the McCardel family. What great enjoyment dear Sadie brought to your family and what a wonderful life Sadie enjoyed. Our prayers, hugs and kisses to you all.

be kind to yourself, jill
Oh so sorry for your loss of Sadie Elaine, I'm quite sure her life with you was a very very happy one. Rememember all the good times you shared.Hugs, Marie
What a beautiful girl! I'm so sorry you have a Sadie-shaped hole in your life. Please take care of yourself and give yourself time to heal.
I am so sorry for your loss. My dog is elderly and seeing this post just broke my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
That is sad. I don't know what it is like to lose a pet; I can only imagine. I do have a dog but she is my first pet, and I know I will miss her when her time comes.
From The Italian Dish:
Thank you ALL so, so much for the comments about our dear Sadie. The house has not been the same without her. I love that you all got to see her picture and all your comments mean a lot to me. Thank you!
My sympathies to you. It looks like Sadie was a lovely girl. Losing a beloved pet is so hard. They just don't live long enough. I've lost many to old age - a 15 year old labrador (my first child); childhood dogs, and my 3 old cats. The one thing I know is that animals give more than they receive. It hurts when they die.
The beautiful eyes and smiling face. I can see the love for you in her darling face. I am sorry for your loss.
Such a sweet girl, your Sadie. We will miss her too. Hugs and kisses to you all.xo
My heart goes out to you. I know how you feel. We just lost our dear little shi-tzu. You were lucky to have each other - I hope you can find some comfort x
sorry for you. What can I say: we've lost our dog Terra two years ago, but it still hurts a lot... Be strong.
oh Elaine! I am so sorry for your loss! That just breaks my heart... and what a sweet face.
Dear Elaine, I am so sorry for your loss. I know how you feel having lost my beloved Sandy 2 years ago. My heart is still heavy. My husband said "No more dogs, I don't ever want to see you go through this again", but after 8 months he finally agreed that we needed to get another dog. We now have Murph, 18 months old a joy to have and love. Though a new dog will not replace Sadie, it may help to fill the void in your llife.
I am so sorry for your loss of Sadie.
devastating. i've been there, so terribly sorry to hear. she was beautiful.
It's tough loosing a dog, they spend their whole life loving you.
