Sandi 02-21-98 - 12/31/08
Almost 6 yrs ago my late ex-mil adopted Sandi (sheltie) at 4 yrs old. Sandi also known as CH Kismet's Sandra Dee, totally bonded with her. After ex-mil's death I inherited Sandi and Sonja (her cousin). Sandi was never the same, her little heart broke when her mama died. She still was flirty and outgoing, and very much independent, and she never forgot her first mama.
New Years Eve Sandi had to go to the rainbow bridge. We found out that she had torn her ACL (knee) but due to her joints being in bad shape and not being able to stand least of all walk, she wasn't a candidate for surgery. And in the past she had bad reactions to Rimadyl so wouldn't even be able to take those for a while. I tried to help her but being so independent she didn't want any help. In the last couple of days she gave me the look that let me know that she was ready to go.
I took these 2 pics of her that morning in my office. She really hated having her pic taken.
So fly high Sandi,
Your Second Mama
