When I started working at my current job, which will be nine years this May, I thought that I would be able to advance to wherever I wanted to within the store, provided it were within reason, and that I was working for a company that actually cared about their workers.

Neither of those have proven to be true, as in the present day I'm still doing what I was doing when I started, and to rewind it more than five years, which was when I realized that I was extremely naive to think that the company I was working for cared.

But it was how that happened which would have the biggest impact on me.

The day was January 20th, 2011. I had a meeting with my mental health therapist earlier in the day and was less than a month away of ending a six-month probationary period. Around 7 PM or so I get called into the office, and I'm entering that with a positive mindset.

That mindset had changed when I was told that I had violated it, and over something that I realized later on didn't even happen. My heart sank when I was told that my probation had been extended to a full year from that day.

I chewed on the unethical and illegitimacy of such an action and refused to sign the paperwork but it was like a football referee issuing an overly harsh red card: the action stuck. Needless to say I was legitimately devastated, spending my meal break in angry tears.

There was no speaking from me for the rest of the night because of how upset I was. Let my emotions out that night when I got home, but I was still angry. It was also the first time in my life that I had wanted to end it all because I felt as though I was working for nothing at all.

I did have one night where I got to have fun on the last Sunday of the month: the 2011 Royal Rumble was in Boston and I had already gotten tickets, so for a period of a few hours I got to forget about all the pain and mental suffering I was going through and enjoyed one of WWE's biggest PPV's of the year.

The pain lingered like a cold that wouldn't go away. But all colds eventually do go away.

About three weeks after my depression started, I felt as though nothing could make me happy again. I would be proven wrong, as my gf told me that one of her roommates had brought a dog into the apartment. I tagged along to her place a couple nights afterward to relax, but I also felt something calling me to do so.

I was glad I did. The moment I sat down and wondered "wait a minute: where's the dog?" the dog picked up on my presence, and after barking I got greeted to the friendliest, most cheerful dog I have ever come across: a Labradoodle, named Sadie!

Immediately, I could feel the anger and the mental pain dissipate as I couldn't help but pet this dog as she was so happy to meet someone new! And yes, I did get licked (quite a bit I might add), but Saide was also rather...vocal, shall we say, as she did have a tendency to bark.

That night, when I went home, I realized that I could still be happy because there was a friend that could make me happy just by being with me.

That summer I would move into said apartment because it was found by the local fire department to be illegal for my previous apartment to have a stove in the basement. So we lost the stove, and I chose to move out as a vacancy was opening up in that apartment, which was only across the street.

It wasn't the best of matches with the dog's owner at first but we got along. And I did beat that probationary period as well. For a time, I was quite happy as I had a dog that I was living with, whom was keeping me happy, however all good things must end.

As the lease was coming up for June 2014, it was eventually decided that the roommate and her dog would move out, while my gf and I would move into a different apartment in another part of town. We would still see Sadie every so often, including on Christmas these last two years and unexpectedly on Valentine's Day 2015 after having dinner near Harvard Square, amongst other times.

I had picked up on the audio pitch of her barking and followed it to the dog, which made for an amazing moment during one of last season's many snowstorms!

Not everything lasts forever though. This past fall in October, I was informed that Sadie had cancer. As some of you reading this may know, I was told in January that the cancer had spread and that she only had a limited amount of time left to live.

The day I'm writing this is Easter Sunday 2016. Earlier this afternoon, our former roommate called me and had requested that I get my gf and to put the phone on Speaker. Over the night prior, when she got home from work she had discovered that her dog was bleeding out, and after taking her to the hospital to get her examined, a decision was eventually made to put her to sleep.

As sad as that news was to hear, she is no longer in any pain or suffering and in a better place. At this point it was the right thing to do, even though it wasn't easy.

That being said, I will look back on the 5+ years that I've known Sadie, and I'll smile on them for happening with eternal gratitude for getting me out of a really dark place mentally that I was in, and for keeping me happy even when I didn't want to be.



In closing, I say this: Thank you Sadie. Thank you for coming along and bringing an incredible, amazing amount of happiness into my life, and for teaching me how to smile again.
