Arrival Story: I was born in Southwest Germany. My mommy brought me home from the breeder in the first week of Sep 1995. I was so little, apricot with red ears. Grandma and Grandpa didn't really wanted a dog in the house (Mommy lived in the downstairs appartment of their house) but Boy, did they change their mind quickly after they saw me. I became the star in the house. I was with my Mommy in the evenings, nights and weekends and when she was at work I was with them. I enjoyed being spoiled.
Then in 2003 Mommy married and we moved to the USA. I didn't really wanted to leave at first but then I adapted really fast. I loved my new home and yard and I got a really nice Dad. When we went on vacations to Germany, I stayed with Daddy's aunt. She lives in a rural area of Pennsylvania. I had a big yard there, lots of animals to chase and I got sooo many goodies from Auntie.
I had a heart condition (enlarged heart, congestive heart failure) since I was 1, but it never stopped me in my actions. I went hiking in the Alps, I was hiking in Pennsylvania, nothing was too much for me. Just the last two years I got some more problems. I had to take a lot of pills and had more and more trouble breathing. Even I was still eating a lot, I lost more and more weight. I took more naps and was glad Mommy was home to spend a lot of time with me.
I went to the Bridge on Nov. 2, 2009. That was the hardest decision Mommy had to make in her life so far. But I feel so much better now and run around with all the other doggies here. The only thing that makes me sad, is too see how much Mommy cries about me. She misses me so much, but she knows that some day we will both be together again. I will be waiting for her.
I was thrilled when Grandma and Grandpa came for a visit from Germany. I showed them around the neighborhood and we even went to a park where dogs weren't allowed. But who cared, I can't read and Grandma and Grandpa didn't speak English, so nobody understood the sign that said "NO PETS". Mommy was laughing when we told her the story.
Alone: Daddy let me out in the morning before he went to work. He always had an eye on me, because sometimes I try to get away to do my own things. But this one morning he called me in and he thought I was following him. Boy, was he wrong. I just used the chance for a nice lonely walk through the neighborhood. When he opened the door to let me in, I was gone. He panicked and woke up Mommy and together they walked through town, Daddy drove through the streets. They didn't find me. After one hour Mommy looked down the road and there I was. I walked slowly up towards the house. When I saw Mommy's face, I knew I was in BIG trouble. She didn't understand that I just went to make some friends. She didn't think it was funny.
today I am 2 years in heaven. It`s ok there, but it was nicer with my Mommy. I miss her and I know she still misses me a lot. I see her cry often but she should know that I am fine. I am healthy again, I get good food and we all have a big big yard to run around. I know that I will see my Mommy again some day. I will wait patiently .....
Hi to All. It's a while I wrote but my parents were soooo busy. Mommy and Daddy moved to Germany in May and now we are finally all together again. I have a special place in the living room (also in their heart for sure) now. They are even thinking about having another little bugger like me, oh well, we will see. Nobody could ever replace me but I know Mommy would love to have another "little baby".
it's a while since I wrote to you, but I am so busy up here with all the other little doggy angels. We are playing, running over the green meadows together and sometimes we just forget the ones we left behind. Don't worry anymore, I am just fine.
I wish you and Daddy a Happy Valentine's Day, also lots of kisses and hugs for Grandma and Grandpa.
