Date of Death: 

October 5, 2016

I adopted Saydalee, or she actually chose my daughter and me, from an adoption event in 2002 when she was 1 year old.  She and her brother had been surrendered because they weren't "cocker spaniels", and Saydalee was found to be quite a jumper.  I had been advised that she shouldn't be left in a fenced yard if I wanted to keep her.

Saydalee was the largest dog I had ever had, and she kept me running, walking, and extremely happy for the past 14 years. She was the absolute best dog that anyone could have ever shared a life with, and I miss her terribly. She made friends with everyone and every animal she met, even was step-sister to 4 cats. She gave me so many happy moments over the years, that it still hurts to realize that she is gone. Although she had a torn ACL and arthritis had set in, she continued to walk with me up to a week before her death.  She was pure heart.  I was blessed to have her in my life.  She went to the Rainbow Bridge to wait for me on Wednesday, October 5, 2016 at the age of 15 years, 4 months.
