Clinton from Monroe, Louisiana, United States has included Sasha, a female German Shepherd Dog dog on this week's Tribute list and Monday Candle Lighting Ceremony.
My dog Sasha can be perfectly summed up in one word: sweet. She was friendly with people and dogs alike, could be taken anywhere. She was the best thing to ever happen to me and I didn't even know I needed a dog at the time. Thirteen years ago, my now late mother asked me to find her a German Shepherd puppy. After searching high and low, I finally found a starving, pregnant one at the local animal shelter. I decided mom could have the pick of the litter and I'd keep the scrappy mama dog. Sasha quickly became the best friend I have ever had. When she found me, I was still in college and struggling, and she was there for graduations and job offers, while also providing a faithful shoulder to cry into during the tragedies such as losing my mom to cancer. Sasha was very healthy in general so it was upsetting when she began to show signs of aging like limping and slipping down. I put her on arthritis medicine, bought her socks and foot sprays for gripping, then thyroid medication when hers started slowing down. Eventually she couldn't walk unassisted but was always her chipper, smiling self. Finally, the day came in early Feb, 2020, when we discovered she had cancer. We tried to take it in stride, thinking that there was plenty of time to say goodbye, but there is never enough time. About a month after the initial diagnosis, even with pain meds she was clearly uncomfortable and the time came to say goodbye, yesterday, on March 10th, 2020. I took off work and spent our last full day together loving on her, taking pictures and videos and she even got a burger and canned food for dinner. I gave her a rawhide bone that was nearly as big as she was--one of her favorites! She did a decent job of working on it that night and seemed happy, except for when she was uncomfortable. In the morning, I gave her a hotpocket (she normally never got more than a rare bite of people food), we went for our last ride to the park, and then we went to the vet. Letting her go while she was still lucid and able to walk around with her front legs, while the right thing for her, has been the absolute hardest thing I have ever done. Her passing was peaceful and I held her until the end. Our veterinarian is an amazing person and helped that part be as least traumatic as possible. Now I hope that Sasha is with my mom and her late puppy Idgy. I hope Sasha knows how very much I continue to love her, that she was the best girl ever, and that I will never ever forget her. Thank you for being my friend, Sweet Sweet Chacha. I miss your smiling face every moment.
