Montreal Times pet of the week – Saydee the Dachshund with Big Love
Montreal Times pet of the week – Saydee, a seven year old dachshund who lives with Marlene Berman in Verdun, has helped to fill both their lives with love – love much bigger than her size. She is a rescue who was abandoned and about to be put down, but Marlene came into her life and made sure that was not going to happen.
“She was abandoned because of the death of her owner. I had convinced myself that I didn’t want another dog after the loss of my other dog two years before,” explained Marlene. “It was difficult for me to allow her to be put down.”
Marlene was convinced she was not ready for a new dog at the time, but when she heard about Saydee’s story, her heart opened up. “For some unknown reason I didn’t hesitate to say yes.”
And Saydee came home with Marlene to start a new life.
She could also be very funny. Saydee only barks at other dogs when she sees them on TV and she loves to play with her blue squeaking ball.
Life can throw you curve balls, sometimes even hard enough to knock you down to a place where it feels impossible to ever rise up from again – but then sometimes big miracles can appear in little packages. And for Marlene and Saydee that big miracle happened.
“I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to share my life with the wonderful spirit that is Saydee.
Oh what a joy it is! She is my best friend… and most of all I have to wonder who rescued who!”
They have helped each other heal the wounds of great loss – and it is clear that fate rescued both of them.
