Happy Sadieday!  It's the last Sadieday of 2012 and while our reflections of the year include sadness and heartbreak such as losing our sweet sisfur Sadie, we have decided to not dwell on the bad but to look at the good.  For instance, we were blessed to share our lives with Sadie and her special spirit...
She taught us that every day is to be appreciated and anticipated...
And that there are adventures down every path you take...
And of course she taught us to be happy and show it with a smile...
Our wish for you in the New Year is that you find your own joy, adventure and happiness and be sure to smile every day!  As this past year has taught us, we never know what tomorrow will bring so appreciate every single moment!

We hope you have a Happy Sadieday and wonderful last weekend of 2012!

PeeS:  We want to continue to spread positivity on Sadiedays so if you have suggestions or ideas of ways to do this, please let us know in the comments or email us at beadedtail at yahoo dot com.  Thank you!

In some way, this beautiful tribute make me and mom cry. We miss her. Miss her smile. And what she taught us...truly truth ! To spend much time and be happy with your love one. No one know what's tomorrow will be.

About the resolution, may be you can link your post to some pet website who offer to be a host. The one I know is my old woofie's friend.
But they do link on Sunday.

Hugs to you and Have a lovely day

I love seeing your Sadiedays! My human plans to work very, very hard in 2013... but the secret it that her work, which is writing and photography and art, brings her a lot of joy!

Thank you, beautiful, sweet Sadie girl, for brightening our days with these beautiful photographs of the beautiful you. We miss you, and we remember you with so much love, and we smile whenever we see you.

These are such beautiful and moving and yes, profound words - that there are adventures down each path in life that each of us take. And to be happy, and to love one another.

I'm all weepy now so I'd best send this off. With much love to you always, beautiful Sadie, and to Angel, Isabella and of course Sharla, your mom, too.

Have a beautiful, bright, hopeful, healthy and happy 2013 everyone. - June in Ireland

i think Sadie did a fabulous job of reminding us about each of those things on Sadiedays and every day. Especially with her wonderful smile!

Marg said... December 29, 2012 at 6:35 AM

Oh Sadie it is always so great to see your smiling face. Spreading the positivity is such a good idea. I think just seeing Sadie's smiling face works just great. But Mom will think on it and get back to ya. Keep smiling everyone.

Seeing Sadie's smiling face every Sadieday makes me smile too :) She was such a sweetheart and I love that you continue to share her bewootiful spirit with us :)

Lovely post - lovely wishes...Happy New Year!

I listened to a radio host, who every Friday would do a "Bright Side" feature. He'd play Monty Python's "Always look on the Bright Side of Life" and folks would call in and give their good news for the week. It could be simple things like "My college kid is coming home today" or big things like "I've just been cleared of cancer." Maybe you could do something like that?

Sadie's smiley face is about the good things in life. I have to remember to smile more and quit letting work and work stuff get to me. That's my resolution for the new year.

It's good she brought so much joy perhaps to focus on a pet that needs a home so joy can be brought to both the pet and a new owner?

This is a great last post of 2012. Sadie is smiling about it too. She has taught you so very much.

I think doing posts like this is right on the money. Sadie seemed to have had life dialed in very nicely.

Have a terrific day and last weekend of 2012. Scritches to the babies. :)

Beautiful post!! Animals are such great teachers, and Sadie was wise, loving, sweet and a truly wonderful friend. And that last picture of her grinning ear to ear --or "smiling wide enough to eat a banana" as they say -- is just priceless. Wishing you much happiness, laughter, joy and blessings for the New Year!

LOVE Sadieday, for so many reasons. First and foremost ... love Sadie's smile. But also the reflection on the simple things in life that make us smile. Here is an idea to think about ... a bloggy friend of mine is suggesting a 52-week photo collage as moments in life. The posts are each Saturday for the next year. Might be a nice way to remember Sadie by joining in!

Ann said... December 29, 2012 at 10:31 AM

What a pleasure to see Sadie's smiling face today. I think your plans for the new year are perfect and Sadie would approve

Mariodacat said... December 29, 2012 at 10:58 AM

What a bootiful doggie she was too. he he - her smile is making us giggle! She really does have a smile!

The Island Cats said... December 29, 2012 at 11:36 AM

We think Sadie would really like this...that Sadieday becomes a day to smile and reflect on all the good things!

DancingMooney ♥ said... December 29, 2012 at 12:24 PM

Oh Sadie. I never even meet you, but I feel loss, and sorrow, and JOY when I see these posts. ♥ It's hard to think of something new to do on this day, but I'm sure your sisfurs and Mommy will come up with something truly special. Always better to have loved and lost, than to not loved at all. ♥

Blessing Sharla!!!!

Lovely tribute to lovely Sadie <3
Me and mom just LOVE her smile :)
Wish you a wonderful last weekend of 2012 !

Oh. I had to catch my breath seeing teat last photo with Sadie's big smile. She is very missed.

I would love seeing a "smile" feature on Sadieday--something that made either you or a fellow blogger grin during the week--maybe like a random act of kindness? That would be a good tribute, I think.

Daisy said... December 30, 2012 at 6:56 AM

I like Trish's idea!

Those are a lot of wonderful life lessons! Sadie touched so many lives - and brought smiles to everyone!!!

Well said, and we will remember Sadie's sweetness and all that she teaches - even from the bridge!

Sending you all good thoughts and warm wishes for a New Year filled with Peace, Health and Joy!
Much love from Catherine & Banjo

Sadie gave us so many reasons to smile every week. It's great to look back and reflect on them.
