329 pugs rescued since October, 2005

Sadie - Set Sail to the Bridge, August 24, 2006

Sadie, the 6 year old female breeding pug that came to us from Waterloo, passed away, August 24th from a heart attack. She was being fostered by a vet tech who rushed her to the vet. The vet thinks it was a combination of being very overweight, not spayed and still in a cycle, stress and a possible pre-existing condition.

The lesson her that Sadie can teach us is that our little ones are trusting us to take care of them. It is up to us, not them, to keep their weight to a healthy size. Yes, other factors can play a part, but this is something that every pug owner can do directly to ensure a long life for their pug.

Her foster parents have arranged a private cremation for Sadie and a quiet place in the garden for her remains.
