Arrival Story: From Jordan's Mommy:
Jordan is the Band-aid for my broken heart. Jordie came to me on November 8, 2003 - when she was 7 1/2 months old. This is the story of how she came to be my third fur-baby - and the joy that was put back into my broken heart...
My first baby, Savanna, that was my best friend in the whole world, passed away. I had had her for 15 years, since I was 19 years old. I was devastated - but even more devastated and lonely was Idgie, my 11 year old furry daughter - who was raised with Savanna. I turned to American Brittany Rescue for help, because we didn't want Idgie to be so sad and lonely. ABR was incredible! They were so sweet and compassionate to our situation, and really took time to find the right little sister for Idgie. Savanna was 1/2 Brittany Spaniel, that's why I wanted a Brittany. After meeting a few foster Britts, we found our Jordan, who was 6 months old at the time. I really wanted a four or five year old, but Idgie picked HER from all the others, so, here she is!
Jordie has touched our lives and our hearts so gently, yet so completely. I wouldn't give her up for ANYTHING in the whole world! She has wiggled her way into my heart!
She's my little sweetheart, and I am forever grateful that God put us in each other's lives! I am a firm believer that there are NO COINCIDENCES!
There's nothing better than coming home from a rough day and looking into the beautiful, sweet faces of my Jordan and my Idgie! They always seem to find a way to make everything better again...
Bio: I can't believe that my Jordan's ORIGINAL "family", (if that's what you want to call them), kept this beautiful, sweet, and precious baby locked in a crate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - for the first 7 months of her life. They had a perfect baby, but they never even gave her a chance. I don't care though, because I gave her the chance. She is my heart now, and I'm glad they gave her up. She is a precious little girl who is now perfectly well behaved, sweet, and loving. I cannot thank American Brittany Rescue enough for what they did for my family. They went way above and beyond their call of duty to get Jordie for us, and I am forever grateful to them! I never thought I could love another furbaby this much again - but my Jordie wouldn't have it any other way!
Forums Motto: THE BAND-AID FOR MY MOMMY'S BROKEN HEART
I don't think things can get any worse for my family. Our Grandma (Patches first Mommy) who lives next door to us, went to Heaven on September 18, and on September 30, a Sunday, my big sister Idgie that is smaller than me didn't want to eat.
Idgie LOVES to eat, probably more than anything in the whole wide world.
So on Monday, Mommy took Idgie right to Dr. Farr, who is the best doggy doctor and Mommy has been taking all of her fur children to for 18 years.
Dr. Farr felt a mass on Idgie's spleen and sent her and Mommy to a hospital in Branchburg immediately, where they did an ultrasound and found cancer in Idgie's liver and in her spleen. Idgie lived for exactly one week and then Dr. Farr had to help Mommy send her to Heaven.
Idgie was perfect and beautiful and the picture of health. Idgie was almost 15 years old, but a vet that was filling in for Dr. Farr about 9 months ago thought that Idgie was only 7 or 8 years old. Mommy feeds us only healthy holistic food. Idgie had her complete physical at the end of July and everything was perfect.
We are so shocked and devastated, that we still can't believe it.
What will I do without my Idgie....my big sister. Idgie was little, but she took care of me and washed my face every day. Idgie always told me what I should do and what I shouldn't.
Oh, my little heart is so broken and all Mommy does is cry. I'm so sad.
Please keep us in your prayers.
Mommy just told me that our Great Grandma (Mommy's Grandma) is going to be going to Heaven soon. Grandma is very sick and has bad things on her liver and in her kidney called tumors. The doctors told Mommy that we will only have Grandma for about 3 months more - and we are all so sad.
I have been trying my best to take care of Grandma. I know she doesn't feel good, so when we go over her house, I put my two front paws on her lap and I give her a kiss and then I rest my head on her chest. I like to hear Grandma's heart beat. It makes me feel happy and safe.
We built our home right next door, 5 years ago (that was before I was even born!) , so that we could all be happy and be together - and now our Grandma is leaving us - just like Grandpa did 2 years ago.
Grandma loves me.
Grandma always scratches my back.
Grandma lets me kiss her and hug her.
Grandma gives me nice treats.
Grandma tells me I'm beautiful and that I am her good girl.
What am I going to do without her? I am so sad. I love Grandma.
Dear Jordie -
I gave you a new song. It reminds me of how you melted my heart and made me feel love again.
You brought happiness and joy into my broken heart after losing my Savanna, and I thought my heart would never feel that again.
Thank you for making me happy again.
YOU are the song in my heart!
Mommy xo xo xo
