With a heavy heart, I am sad to say our beloved Minature Schnauzer Sasha has passed. She began her journey to Rainbow Bridge on Sunday afternoon. We couldn't bear to think she may be suffering.
We had tried giving her fluid therapy everyday at home...I was cooking everything I could possibly think of to try to get her to eat. She had lost her appetite and started to get weaker.
We knew it was time. This was a very difficult decision to make. We both have never experienced this. We knew we were giving her the best gift ever....She was never going to get better and she had lived a very long life.
Four months shy of being 16 years old. We have cried for days....Healing will come in time, but we will have her precious memories forever.
Please indulge me....Most of us forge an intense bond with our beloved pets. They offer us unconditional love and they overlook any flaws we may have.
There is nothing like coming home, and your pets greeting you happily at the door....so happy...tails wagging....it's like they haven't seen you in a very long time. They are a part of our family and we are take great pride with them.
We got Sasha when she was 8 weeks old. She was my husband's first dog ever and she brought us so much joy. We had a New Years party in 2000 and Sasha was right there. She was so darn cute and tiny. Everyone took turns holding her.
Just look at the cute little puppy face!
I know most of us do silly things with our pets.
Sasha was my shadow...She was by my side after my surgeries, and chemo treatments.
This picture is was taken in 2000, when I had my first cancer and chemo.
Sasha has travelled, rode in the gator, spent time on a farm, swam in our pool, plus so many other outings and activities. She was the sweetest dog with an even temperament.
Rest in peace sweet Sasha. We shall miss you! Now, our sweet Sasha is chasing butterflies at Rainbow Bridge. Thank you for visiting....I appreciate all of your comforting words and thoughts. Hugs...
