This page is for my way of grieving the loss of my special animal. Sandy was a while Alsation (German Shepherd). We were given him as a gift in 2003. Sandy was born on September 16 2003 and he became ours in December of that same year. We started out only looking after him for the true owners, while they were away on holiday. When they returned, Sandy had been with us for so long that they sent him back around to us with a sign around his neck that said he wanted to adopt us as his, so he did and he has been with us ever since.
He was our protector and friend. He was like a child to us and we are now so heart broken and have an empty space in our hearts. He developed cancer in his right shoulder and in turn it progressed very rapidly into his muscles. Chemo was not really an option as he quit eating, lost his apetite and all mobility. No amount of medication we could give him would save him. He was a fighter for life up to the end. He did not want to leave his family behind.
He passed to the other side this morning around 11:00 AM. My eyes are so full of tears and my heart is so broken, it’s like we have lost a child. Now there is no more pain or suffering for Sandy. We dearly miss you my angel!!
