Arrival Story:
Mamie was a surprise Christmas present and arrived very late on a Sunday evening with a bow around her neck. I was certainly not prepared at all, but how could I refuse the six week old, 1.6 pound pup?! We've been pals ever since.

Bio:
Mamie has developed cataracts and is now completely blind, but that's not stopping her from much. She's in her sunset years and is slowing down some. She's definitely the alpha at home, despite her tiny size. She can be quite "assertive"--she has no trouble asking for what she wants (or demanding it!). Mamie survived a fire in my house and is a sturdy soul! *** Mamie went to the Bridge on 6/26/09 at home with the compassionate help of her vet, Dr. Janine Franco. She was 15 1/2 and lived a long and happy life. She will definitely be bossing everyone around at the Bridge.

Are there Tinkle Trousers in Heaven?

If you've been reading my diary, you know that I went to the Bridge on Friday, 6/26. One of my very dearest friends posted the following about me...I wanted to share it and thank Willie and his human with all my heart. It helped my Mom tremendously and made me feel extra special.

I am doing well and watching over all of you with my super big smile. Believe it or not, my smile is even bigger in heaven. I have taken excerpts, so my apologies, Willie. Much love to all, Mamie

Are there Tinkle Trousers in Heaven?

My beloved southern belle pal, Mamie, 15, will be making the journey to join her brother Benny who died in the same house fire Mamie survived on [Friday].

Her mom, Denise, will give her several days of royal treatment before having someone come to her home to assist Mamie on her final journey.

Mamie was a Christmas present arriving with a bow around her neck at 1.6 lbs. and was immediately loved by all.

She has two sisters, Gwen and Violet who love her and assist her as she is blind.

Mamie was the pup who started the POTP in 2004/2005 in a group we were both in called 10 years or older. As you all know, it has since become a loving symbol to each of us and even Dogster has made rosettes and zealies showing the POTP.

Mamie led the Electric Slide dance at my wedding feeling the vibrations of the music on her paws.

Mamie recently joined many of us in Squeaky and Fuzzy on a quest to rid the world of demon squirrels terrorizing many states. Although blind, she used Loki's famous nut-thrower with precision forcing the devils back into the deep woods saving many lives from peril.

Mamie has always been known for her beautiful smile, huge heart, compassion and joy of life.

As Mamie grew older, she began wearing and making tinkle trousers a fashion statement and was seen strutting the streets of Georgia looking quite fine. Many fashion houses wanted to hire Mamie as their model for them but she wished to remain at home with her family.

Benny will be waiting to greet Mamie ...as she struts to the Bridge wearing her famous tinkle trousers and smiling widely.

Please give our beloved Mamie, the POTP which meant so much to her and has helped so many thru the years. She is leaving us all a wonderful legacy to pass along.

You have been a wonderful pal Mamie and I will miss you always but you will furever remain in my heart. I wish you a beautiful week and safe journey to your brother. (Mamie 179949)

 

A peaceful transition

Mamie peacefully made her way to the Bridge on Friday, June 26, at 5:10 pm. She was in my arms and was assisted by our compassionate vet, Dr. Janine, and her assistant Leona. It was very hard, but she is at peace now. I have just read all the tributes and am terribly touched. We are OK..but it is hard. I might be away for a few days, as I need some time. Gwen and Vi and I are together.

I thank each and every one of you for thoughts, prayers and POTPs. Some of you planted or gathered flowers in her memory. I will get around to thanking everyone personally when I can, but I may be delayed.

Miss Mamie Penny was so loved. She is now with Blixa, Stormy, Duncan, Sadie, Hayley, Bandit, Little Bit, Ricki and many others. And of course she is reunited after 5 years with her dear brother Benny.

Blessings to you all...Denise

 

Thanks...and countdown

I continue to get rosettes and pmails and POTP from lots of furs. Thank you all so much. And Sarge has started a stroll for me, too. That is very touching. Willie and Autumn have posted in the forums as well. And I was made Bud of the Week in the Navin and Buds groupThanks for getting the word out...all of the thoughts are helping mom as well.

An update...I'm getting special foods. Steak (yum), sweet taters (double yum) and I got some scrambled eggs with my kibble last night. I feel special and will go to the Bridge with a fat belly.

Love Mamie
