It is always sad to lose a beloved pet, but although I am an emotional kind of man, I cannot remember the hurt being this bad before. Maybe it is simply what happens as we grow older. Or could it be that we spent so much of our time together?
Sadie the German Shepherd was without doubt the kindest, most gentle and patient dog I have ever had the privilege to share my life with.
Here is a song I have written in her sweet memory. I managed to hold it together until just before the end of the song when there is a bit of an emotional wobble.
There is a reason why I share this sad song with you but I cannot formulate the words as to what that reason is. Something to do with music as therapeutic and the purpose of all art is surely to provoke a response of some sort.
