Good Bye Sassi

The moment every dog owner dreads has come for Doug Bennett and Sassi his husky who was ill for a while and is no more.
"Sassi, my husky, has left the island. She will be missed greatly"
It never does get easier, I find.

Doug Bennett has evry need to greive. The look on Sassi as she is carried (must be a handful of weight) in Doug's arms as Doug dances with her is a wonderful reason to exist for both of them.

It is never easy to lose a four-legged pet; please pass on to Doug my sincere condolences..

BTW as I write this the wind chill is around minus 10C, not that cold but not great either. Freezing rain out there!

Merry Christmas or whatever Mike

I read about this last Sunday and have no way of telling him sorry for his loss. I met Sassi and Boca, along with Doug, last November.May the memories live on....Scooter Vic

So sad to lose our companions. My heart is with you Doug. Maybe in time you can find another special companion to share your life. Bless you both for the love and care you show to your babies. My little yorkie Cheyenne is turning 18, this day is on my near future horizon as well. Peace to Doug in knowing you loved and were loved by such an awesome little individual.

It gets harder. Every dog, cat, friend, even strangers in the news. To grieve is to pay tribute to life itself and to the unique and irreplaceable being that was just lost. It gets harder.
