Sadie and I were active in Pet Partners beginning in 2008 and she just recently retired because of old age and poor health. On Friday, September 7 she passed over the Rainbow Bridge and joined her other friends that went before her.

During Sadie’s 10 years of therapy work, she was primarily involved with young students working on improving their reading skills.  She did this at Mark Twain Elementary in Iowa City and then for the last eight years at Van Allen Elementary in North Liberty.  She also did some hospice visits, and frequently participated in stress relief for college students during finals week.  She loved this work and never hesitated when it was time for a visit.
