Leah wrote it and put it together. It's a book about someone that many of you may remember; it's about Sadie, our cocker spaniel who my family had before I came to live with them. I was born in the middle of July and Sadie went to Rainbow Bridge at the end of July.
Motch called her Say-Say Luv and said she was the most gentle and patient dog she ever knew. Sadie was Leah's best friend. Fig liked her a lot, too, because she never snapped at Fig, even when Fig was a psychotic puppy. And of course Tad liked Sadie, because by the time he met her, she was very old and spent most of her time sleeping, so he was never afraid of her.
This is the first page of the book. Page after page shows pictures of Sadie and our family. Leah included the tribute she wrote to Sadie about how much she loved her. Some of you from DWB are quoted in the book, because you brought a lot of comfort to Leah and my family during this sad time.
We got a memorial stone that marks the spot where Sadie is buried.
She is in our yard, right under a tree. I never knew her, but I like to think that we would have been best friends if we had met. If you look closely, you can see me standing in the background. I never go potty in this spot.
On Christmas morning, Leah gave us another book. This is a book about ME and my first month living with Motch and PA! This book brought alot of smiles to my family.
I'm so glad that I got to come and live here. I know that I will never replace Sadie, but I will stand right beside her in the hearts of all of my family.
