Sarah Is In The Garden Now

Sarah is in the garden now


My dog Sarah was a super dog.  I say my dog because even though she was supposed to be the family dog, she was mine.  She was the sweetest dog and even had fans who used to go out of their way to walk by our house to pet her as she sat on the front lawn.



We got her at a small farm in Wisconsin, where the Dad was a veterinarian and the daughter raised a litter of Golden Retriever puppies every few years.


She loved being around me.  When I worked in the garden, she was right there in the garden too.



Even when I was putting seeds in the vegetable garden, she was in the garden.




But her favorite thing was to go to Forest Park and run around with her best friend Josie, an Australian Shepard dog.



She loved to  sit in the streams in the park.



Winter was just as much fun as warmer weather. Although she once had to be rescued by people working at the Boat House Restaurant when she fell through the ice on the pond next to the restaurant.




Sarah lead the way on many walks in Forest Park.



At home, it was always fun to be in the front yard for hour after hour. She often rolled around on her back and let the sun warm her belly.



She loved to sit out on the front lawn in the spring, summer, fall and winter.  I had to  make her come inside when the weather was too hot or too cold.  Last winter was her final one.  It was a very sad day last Christmas when my family and I took her to the vet to put her down.  She was 13 and a half years old.



Today I spread Sarah’s ashes in the garden near the front door and her beloved front yard.  Her sweet essence is still here with me as I walk from my my car, across the lawn next to the garden and into the house.  I miss her.
