Arrival Story:
My mom had just lost her first dog and was having a hard time without the companionship. So, she started looking through the "free" section of the Seattle Times. There I was. My previous owner had been getting frustrated with all these calls of people who she knew just weren't going to give me what I needed, then my mom called. She was the only one looking for a companion to love. Needless to say, I ended up being an escape artist and landed myself in obedience training a few years later. I went on to compete in agility from the ages of 5-8, and continued in a semi-retired schedule, only running Tunnelers in NADAC, until I was 11.

I was an affectionate boy who loved anyone who loved animals! If you had a free hand, I'd stick my head under it, in the hopes of an extra pet! At 13 yrs. old, I was diagnosed with cancer in my spleen. On August 8, 2007, I was called home, my job of physically loving and caring for my mom finished. I continue to watch over her and the pack from above.

Nitro's Memoires

I visited mommy

Exactly 2 months after I physically left my mommy, I decided I should visit. While she was sleeping I came and put my head under her hand to let her know I am watching over her, but in a different way, now. Well, I guess I wasn't all that careful not to wake her as I startled her and she woke up, looking for me. Oh well, I tried. But now mommy knows my presence is still here. I love my box and the photos she bought of me. What an awesome tribute!

I want to take the time to thank all of you who were there for my mommy. Your support truly helped her though this tough time for her. I was only her second dog and we had 11 glorious years together. While she still cries when she thinks of me, each day has brought back a funny or good memory of me. She keeps telling me that what she misses most is the feel of my fur and rubbing my ears and scratching my head.

I my body may be gone, but I know I will never be forgotten.



I'm just too weak...

Mom says we have a vet appointment at 2pm. She's been crying a lot today. I feel so bad, but I just can't give her any comfort. No food for me (as I won't eat it), but vanilla ice cream has been nice. I am tired and weak and have begun to accept that this is my time. I fell on my way to the door to pee, this morning and my breathing is labored and I'm miserable.

Soon, I will suffer no more (I'm told) and join mommy's first dog at the bridge and wait for her and watch over her and the family that is left behind. My spot will be filled, in the future and mommy will have the opportunity to love another special soul.

This special soul has completed the job he was sent down to this earth to do - love mommy unconditionally and be there through her worst years and her happiest years. I must give another soul the opportunity to feel the love she's given me...with much love mommy, I fly.................................


Back to Not Eating...

Well, I ate 2 bites, last night, and I had diarrhea, again, last night - but mom heard me before it happened and she took me outside so no accidents last night.

However, I am very tired and not interested in food. I want to eat, but just don't want to eat. I don't really want to get up, but I will if I have to. I keep sending mixed messages to mommy so she's not sure if she should let me go or care for me another day. She told me she's coming home early from work, today. I hope she can too.

What do I tell my mom? How will she know I'm ready go leave this world to persue my spot at the bridge?
