Just a quick up date. Please accept my apologies for not being around the blogging community. I miss reading, sharing, and commenting. However, my focus is Miss Sadie Lou. Her struggle is tough, but her spirit even more so. She has had 5 shots to help with her pain and mobility and most likely little to no more will be allowed as they can be just as tough on her little body. We continue to let her guide us.
In addition to using her sweet and strong Chessie spirit to fight aging, she has helped me with a leadership project at work. Many have fallen love with her and Miss Stella as they try to share words of wisdom to help others become strong leaders for tomorrow. Miss Sadie provides an amazing example of true leadership.
She is breaking our hearts. Miss Sadie Lou is such a sweet girl. Watching her with her back legs is horrible. She wants to run and play, and still does to some degree. Her will is so strong and her drive to run after a tennis ball is inspiring. We have to stop her or she will way over do it. She looks at us as if we are crazy. She loves her frozen raspberries and watermelon, acting all grumpy with Miss Stella when she wants to rule the roost, and laying across my feet in the morning when I drink my coffee. She knows that Miss Stella is still too sleepy to bother with fighting for ‘foot space’, so she gets all the ear rubs and belly scritches or sometimes just some peaceful snore time. She amazes me with her determination every day. Miss Sadie is such a gift. How much grace can a dog have?
