Tribute to Sasha

 Sasha - April 26, 1997 - August 29, 2011

MOLLY - SASHA (center) - KELSIE - RUNNING FREE ON THE BEACH BY LAKE KLUANE, YUKON TERRITORY


Our Sasha - of the sweet and naturally perfect sheltie ears...
Who lived to play Frisbee endlessly...
Who had a built-in tummy clock for meal time...
Whose face lit up every time she saw her favorite person - our Dave...
Who traveled so well by auto - even as far as the Arctic Circle...
Who was always shy, but devoted and loyal and went through life with dignity...
Who was filled with a gentle temperament.
Our dear companion...

Sorry for your loss, TO. What a beautiful little dog! I'm sure you will miss her!

Lizzie said...

It's so hard to lose them isn't it, I'm so sorry for you. Every time, I tell myself that I can't do it again and everytime I find that I just can't live without a four legged best friend...
Huge cyber hugs ..

So sorry to hear about Sasha. Your tribute brought tears to my eyes. Losing a fur family member is so very painful. There will be a lot of frisbee playing in heaven now. Hugs from Winnipeg.

I am so sorry for your loss! It is the worst thing ever when we treat our pets like family, because they are and we lose them! Your Sasha looked like the perfect lady! I am grieving for you as I know how difficult this process can be. Just keep remembering all the beautiful things about her and know she was so loved. Hugs Anne

Pat, my heart goes out to you. We lost our Precious girl last November after 14 years. Even though we have Lizzie and Mulligan, we are still grieving our loss. Sasha was beautiful!

That was a wonderful tribute to your four legged friend. I'm so sorry. I've been there myself many times over the years. It never gets any easier.

What a lovely tribute, and I am sure Sasha is playing at Rainbow's Bridge, on the other side of Heaven. I have been through the loss of a pet, and know how much it hurts. Thank you for stopping by, come back soon. xo,

I liked your phrase "built-in tummy clock." Our Maine Coon cat has the same ability. Pets do add such a lot to our lives. It's sad to miss them, but what wonderful memories we have of each one.

EG Wow said...

I'm sorry about your loss. It sounds like Sasha was a wonderful friend and important part of your family for fourteen years, That's a long yet short time. I'm glad you have photos and memories. It's so sad when an adored pet passes on. Take care and I wish you all the best as you grieve.

I'm so sorry for your loss. As the owner of 5 dogs, I know they are family members; our children. I'm thankful you had her for so many years....and just think, she's waiting by the front window in heaven - watching for you.

Barbara Jean said...

I'm so sorry for your loss, Pat. Everyone who knows you will miss Sasha too.

Words fail me as tears stream down - my heart is still so raw, healing is so slow and my understanding is immense. My love and compassion are with you at this terribly sad time and know that while you may grieve now, Sasha not being in your life would have been a much greater loss. A truly beautiful tribute.

Oh Pat, I'm so sorry for your loss. It's hard to say goodbye to such a loving member of your family - and she was a sweetie. One can just see that.

How very sad. I hate it when they go to that doggie heaven in the sky.
I cry for weeks. You'll remember her for ever.
