My husband and I had adopted a sweet 9 month old black Lab named Lady from the Conshohocken facility on President's Day 1999. We renamed her Sadie Mae. I believe it was fate that led us to her that cold day. She has been our heart and soul for almost 15 years as well as a constant companion to our Chocolate Lab Molly who had been with us for 5 months prior to Sadie joining our family.
I want you to know she passed away one week ago today on July 29th. She was 97 in human years according to the canine age calculator. We are so grateful to the Montgomery County SPCA for giving us this gift. She was like our child and brought us so much joy and laughter over the years and we want you to know we had given her the very best life that she could have ever had. Sadie and Molly went everywhere with us. We took them on hikes and swimming in lakes on a regular basis. The house and the furniture was really theirs and they let us live there- LOL! We will always remember the day we saw our sweet Sadie at the shelter in the corner of her run just petrified and drooling at the mouth.
If only her first family would know what they through away that day. She was our treasure that we found and we were with her up until her last breath. There will never be another like her. We love her and miss her so very much!Brenda and David Dellalba
