I feel if everyone who reads this Story is to truly appreciate what an amazing Dog my Fizzly was, then I need to tell her whole story right from the beginning. As I know that the last year of her short life may have been her defining part. The stage where everyone who knew her really began to acknowledged how remarkable she was. But I think you need to know my Fizz from the start not just the part where she finally met her brave and in my eye's Spiritual end.
Because she was much more than an illness, she will always be and will always remain my Best Friend and I don't think I will ever get over losing her, but I think that it may be helped by the telling of her Story and by the helping of others.
For as long as I can remember I had always wanted a Rottweiler, but over the year's I had never actually got one. Through the years I had other dogs and even though I loved them totally, I still had this deep internal longing for the Black and Tan Rottie Breed.
Not that Dai ( Hubby ) shared my longing !! In fact he was scared of anything bigger than a Corgi ?? Though spending more and more time with me, he has had a Hard Task Master in me. I have made sure over the years that his fears have rationalised, otherwise he would have never kept up with me and the children !!
Bearing that in mind that I had 2 small children in Ben and Emma ( Not so Little now ! ) I knew that I could not just have any Rottweiler it would have to be an exceptional one. The breeding line would have to have an Incredible temperament as it's top credential and in my mind's eye that would be my first request !
So as our home life rushed by instead of sauntering it seemed that my longing would have to remain just that and I almost put the thought out of my head.
Then when Ben was around six, we met a new family in his Karate Club and this is how I met Linda who is now one of my closest friends. I soon found out that she bred a variety of different dogs and we'd talk Doggy whenever we met up !
It was one of these Dog Talks that she mentioned that she was going to have to clip a few dogs as the weather was warming up.When I was younger my parents owned a Boarding Kennels and also a Clipping Business so I said I would go and help her as its a bit like riding a bicycle. ( Though more Itchy !! )
So the next day we went off to help Linda clip some warming up Spaniels !! When we arrived at Linda's I started asking her what Puppies she had at the moment ?? ( as everyone who knows me Knows that I love Babies ! )
Linda started to tell me and she reeled off some names, King Charles Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels, Golden Retrievers and ................................... ROTTWEILERS !!!
