Michelle, in time those million pieces will come back together. For now, I know it hurts like anything. I wish I could help the heartache go away. {{{{hugs}}}}

Michelle, my heart sank when I saw this post. Sassy lived such a wonderful life and I know you are so proud of how strong she was fighting this disease. She truly is a Warrior Princess! Now, she can rest easy and look down on her family, feeling your eternal love and sending hers back to you.
With our love and hugs,

Oh Michelle…I am shocked and very sad end to hear the news of Sassy! I had not been on the boards for a couple weeks, read your discussions about Sassy and I even posted on the thread, now I feel real terrible!

I know this time is real rough and it seems like nothing can fill the void you have. We always keep hoping we are going to get more time with our buddies, and it just isn’t enough. I know Sassy is with you in spirit and cherish those special memories you have.

 

My heart feels very broken for you. Hang in there!

I am so sorry that you lost your big girl.  She looks so happy in the photos!  You took great care of her and bought her so much extra quality time.

Michelle, I am so sorry to just be seeing your post on Sassy.  I don’t know what brought me to the forum today, but I was hoping to see better news.  Sassy fought hard and you gave her a wonderful life and a quality of life.  RIP Sassy.  Take Care Michelle.

Here is a picture of Sassy’s urn & memorial tag that Rene made.  It is an awesome tribute to Sassy.  Still missing her a bunch but each day I don’t cry.  More great memories come to me and make me smile.  Until I make posts or write on her blog then I bawl LOL.

Michelle, thank you so much for being so courageous and sharing these photos, I know it couldn’t have been easy. It makes my heart sing knowing you like it. It was an honor to create it for you and your amazing girl.

The only thing I would change about the urn is if it had 3 paws instead of 2 but I love it anyway.  I guess they don’t make Tripawd urns huh?

The Tripawds Gifts Blog Remembrance page has as close as we could come.

They pale in comparison to what you have there for Sassy, beautiful indeed.
