After 14+ years, we said goodbye to our lovely Sierra Marie last Friday. Our vet was able to come to our house, where Sierra was most comfortable, and let her go here. She had a rough last year, and it was time for her pain and discomfort to end.
Call me crazy… but what can you say about a dog that loved you unconditionally, poked your pregnant belly with her nose, taught you how to parent, strengthened your marriage, let your toddlers pull her ears and tail, sat with you as you mourned the death of your parent, walked two miles each day with her leash in her mouth, was known by name by all in the neighborhood, traveled with you on almost every family vacation, was with you during most of your marriage and every milestone in your young family’s lives, cheated death two times, and let you know when it was time to let her go?
She was an incredible friend and a huge part of our family.
We will miss our furry girl, we will never forget her, and we thank you for allowing us to share how much we loved her with you.
