I believe that Sabs made sure that I had Shadow before she went. Sabi had always been my Nanny dog, she raised every pup I fostered. But she didn't let Shadow go. Usually when the pups started to grow up she drifted off to let them be independent, she never did with Shadow. She kept her close and taught her everything she could. I believe that she knew she was fading and wanted to make sure I was ok, that I wouldn't be alone.
I think Shadow was her gift to me. She knew that Shadow needed me, and she knew that I needed Shadow.

I am so sorry for your broken heart. Sabis would not want you to be so sad. She made sure you had Shadow before she had to go.
Traveler and I are sending comforting prayers to you.

|MythicMut||I am so sorry for your loss Sabis Mom. It does stay seem to stay with you for years. I recently lost two very wonderful dogs only 4 months apart and besides dealing with their loss it made my other (dog) losses all come back. Again, I am sorry.|

SabisMom, your posts brought me to tears, I am so very sorry for your loss. Most of us do understand your feelings about Sabi. I thought I was going crazy when my Max died and wondered if I was going to come through it. Even now when I think about him, I can feel the weight of his body in my arms as he died.
My husband actually encouraged me to look for another dog after Max, I think he was getting worried about me. So, I found Newlie and brought him home, and I knew I would take care of him, but in my heart I thought I would never feel the same about him as I had Max. I was wrong. I grew to love Newlie just as much and I will grieve for him just as hard when it's his turn to go. Newlie didn't replace Max, I just gave him a different piece of my heart. It is funny, though, sometimes I feel like I can see Max in some of the things Newlie does.
Anyway, here is a little poem I read somewhere that I thought you might like:
I explained it to St. Peter,
I'd rather stay here
Outside the pearly gate.
I won't be a nuisance,
I won't even bark, I'll be very patient and wait,
I'll be here, chewing on a celestial bone,
No matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone.
It wouldn't be heaven for me.
Take care of yourself and remember to love the ones still walking the earth because tomorrow isn't promised to any of us.

Sabi must of been very special. They are more than just dogs and they are right next to us as we crawl or climb over the hurdles in life. The poem was beautiful of course my water works begins. The change of the seasons bring on so many other changes. You mentioned October is bitter sweet. Mine is to. Bella our King Charles was born in September the same month as my son. She passed away October 12, 2014( one month after our wedding anniversary- 12th)Our Max was born October 25, 2014. My daughter was born the beginning of October on the same day of my grandfathers funeral. I know Bella waited to pass away after my son and daughters bday. I cried for months. Everytime I think of her cry. As soon as the weather started to change it reminds me of the last few days we had with her.

|Sabis mom||If I thought I would never see Sabi again it would be awful. The only thing that makes being without her tolerable is knowing that she is waiting. I swear I still hear her padding along beside me every day. This time of year is kind of bittersweet for me. Shadow was born in October I think, Sabi died in October, my birthday is in October, I brought Shadow home in October. It's just a weird month, and it gets to me every year.|

Sabi's Mom I am so sorry. I am so glad you have shadow but I understand that emptiness is still there. I believe above all else I will see Daisy again and that helps me. I still talk to her and this is the first year I haven't wrote her a letter. Please take care.

I read your very first post to this thread and it brought tears to my eyes, as my boy Harley I brought home for my husband as well. He will be nine in May and he is my heart and soul. I still remember him following me around everywhere and I would get so annoyed by his small feet thudding after me. I would make my husband take him outside and five minutes later he was crying for me. He worked hard for two yrs and never gave up and he finally was in my heart. We have been one ever since. I do not know what I would do without him. We have shared so many memories together, he owns my whole heart. I dread the day of having to say goodbye to him. Sounds like your Sabi is watching over you and waiting for the day you both meet again.........
