I’d been planning to write something cheerful today, something fun or even cute. But right now, I can’t.
Sadness has overcome my soul.
News came to me that Sara had been put to sleep. You might ask yourselfs “who’s Sara?”, here’s her story:
Sara, a black and white hairy female dog, was the sweetest pet anybody could wish for. She came into our lives on july 2007, while my grandparents where away on vacation. She was at their door, doing nothing, just minding her own business. My mom and I liked her face and the fact that even though she had no idea who we were she waved her tail at us, so we gave her some food.
Days passed and Sara was still there, at my grandparents door, so an idea started taking place in my mind. I shared my idea with my mom and suddenly we were both begging my grandparents to take her in, while they were away on Miami.
We took her inside, even though she didn’t move when she was at the house, I guess she felt she had no right to do so. But slowly she got used to the fact that we wanted her there, we were feeding her and giving her a safe place to live and lots of love.
Days turned to months and Sara became the most loved pet of our whole family, and believe me when I say my family is big.
She would bark at you while you were outside so you would go in and pet her, she would look at you with those happy eyes like saying “You’re the one I love the most”, she would lie on the floor next to you just to be close, she would put her paws on your thighs so you would brush her hair and give her attention.
After four happy years, Sara suddenly had a facial paralisis and couldn’t eat her food well. After two weeks of waiting for her to get better, my grandma decided she could not see her suffer anymore. She went from a fast paced dog to one slowest than an 95 year old person, she would look at you with her face that wasn’t that much happy anymore but she would still go to you so you could pet her.
I really believe that four years ago God sent my family and angel in the form of a female dog who was later was named Sara. A girl who would put a smile on your face no matter what was going on. A girl who loved you no matter what, even if she hadn’t seen you in a month. A girl who returned the love she was freely given with even more love and cherish. A girl who made the difference in a house of two grandparents with two other dogs and a bunch o kids and grandkids. A girl who became the center of our lives.
You’ll be forever loved… Rest in peace little girl <3
