What Kind of Dog Parent Are You?

Sorry, Spike. There’s a new world’s oldest living dog – and he’s the oldest ever recorded.

Sadie wiggled her way out of her crippled body and found new, healthy, strong legs so that she could run like the wind…

What a ride she’s taken all of us on!

And when Sadie was halfway across the Bridge, she stopped and turned to look at me and said “Mom, you can’t stop now. You’ve taken me as far as I want to go. Build on what we started together because there will always be another dog who needs you!”

Dogs are meant to run…

Such a joy I am feeling to know that she is free from her crippled body, watching Sadie jump, run, fetch, just like she used to.

She is happy to be free of the constraints that humans put on her.

Sadie will return in a body that is strong and vibrant, and we will know her when we see her.

All the King’s horses and all the King’s men couldn’t put Sadie together again.


Because she was perfect just the way that she was.

Don’t feel sorry for our loss, our gain is immeasurable.

This is not the end of our journey – the old one brings the new one.

Our mission will never change; to teach acceptance of people and animals who have special needs, delivering a strong anti-bullying message to remind children and adults everywhere to “Think about what you CAN do and not what you CAN’T do”.

Please donate in memory of Sadie, to help us continue her on-going commitment of helping others, just like she has helped so many around the world.

And thank you for your love and continued support. After all, we can’t stay on our mission without YOU!

We will still be attending the Great Lakes Pet Expo on Saturday, February 4th.

Because it was Sadie’s wish to help other special needs dogs, we will be bringing along and featuring a special needs dog at our booth that will be available for adoption from one of the local rescues.

Come and meet your new best friend at Booth 647.

Thank you to all of the talented individuals who created Sadie’s Rainbow Bridge film. Watch it here.

That’s it for this week. Thanks for stopping by.

We’d really appreciate it if you forward this on to other dog lovers you know. Let them have some fun!

See ya, BARK, next Saturday!
