Five years ago I never dreamed I would be taking Sassy to her last vet appointment and not coming home with her.  Yes, I honestly can’t believe it has been that long.  Not a day doesn’t go by that I don’t think of her and miss her tons.   The time has flown by.  It doesn’t mean I love Snickers any less because I don’t.  This journey is one that you don’t realize you build that bond until its gone.  It is like no other.  I miss her a lot.

Without this journey I wouldn’t have made the friends and family I have.   Without everyone here that was here on our journey I don’t know how I would have made it.

Miss you my sweet sweet girl. I know you are with me every day and still gives me signs.




Also sweet Brendol went to the Bridge on this day as well.  We miss you too Brendol.   You have brought your mom & I close.  I have met your other sisters and brother.  Thank you for allowing that meeting.

    Wow I am having a hard time believing five whole years have passed too. I remember that day so clearly Michelle, my heart ached sooo much for you and Karma. I cannot recall such a dark day in our community’s history, it was unreal.

    All I can say is that over the last five years you have grown so much thanks to Sassy’s love and now Snickers, Jaz and of course Bosch, supporting you along the way. You are a rock, a strong, wise and knowledgeable Tripawd mom who has done so many good things for untold numbers of members here. We are all better humans because of Sassy’s strength to help you get there.

    THANK YOU from the bottom of our heart for staying with the community and being there for so many. Sassy’s legacy shines as brightly as ever.

    Much love to you always,
    Rene, Jim, Wyatt Ray & Spirit Jerry

    Sending you hugs on this rough anniversary. Even with thinking of them daily, there’s something about the day marker that makes it different and tougher to deal.
    Thank you for all the support you’ve given here, to me and others.

    Got a little misty eyed over here. You always pay such lovely tributes to your sweet Sassy. The pictures, the beau sentiments, the poems…..all so heartfelt.

    And yes, like Rene, I remember that day so vividly. It was sich a shock for all of us. And then for Brendol and Sassy to head to the Bridge together had us all in tears for days and days…and many more days.

    But yes, our dogs had the wisdom to know they were bringing us all together in friendship and as extended family. They knew we would always have each other now.❤

    Read Rene’s post over and over. All I can say is ditto! You give sooooo much to us all. You truly care about everyone and always reach out to help those who need to be lifted up. And just like Sassy….gentle…but a strong Warrior Woman too!!

    And I love the jackets and sweaters you always had for Bosch and Sassy…..and the girls too!

    Ome thing about Sassy’s pictures…she ALWAYS makes me smile, and makes me say awwww a lot too!

    Thanks for sharing her versary with is today. I know it’s bittersweet….but mostly sweet. I’m sooooo honored to be one of your many friends. Yij are so0 special to us all. AND SASSY WILL ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED HERE!!! You can always take comfort in that. And you can always take comfort in the fact that Sassy knew you loved her more than words could ever say❤ And Sassy loved you right back❤ And yes, a piece of Sassy’s heaven will always reside in your heart.❤

    Love to you dear sr friend
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

    Thinking of you on this anniversary of sadness. We can’t stop the march of time, can we? I will be forever grateful that you and Karma were there for me, to help me deal with and accept the terrifying journey that later made us family. Your pictures are beautiful, memories of a magical life. I hope all our fur-kids are the best of friends at the Bridge, as we are here on Earth. Hugs!
