Arrival Story:
Newspaper ad

She was advertised as the "1/2 size sister of Rin Tin Tin". She was a rescue dog who came with a legacy of a broken foot that had never been tended to and a pellet in her chest. She had incredibly large, deep brown eyes that would melt your heart. For 15 yr. 2 mo and 2 days she was my best pal. We shared everything - our food, our travels, our little house, our friends. She always knew what I was thinking and she knew how to talk me into giving her treats or the last bite of every meal. She was the love of my life. I couldn't even begin to imagine life without her and now here I am. Mandy died on Oct. 12, 2005. The pain of losing her is worse than I could ever have imagined. I treasure the time we had together and the memories that she gave me. I would give the world to have her back but only if time would erase the years and the infirmities from her. She was a brave girl but it was her time to go but not my time to lose her but then it never would have been. Good bye my little friend, be happy and know that you were loved more than life itself. We will meet again someday!

My memories of Mandy

Your Little Black Nose

My sweet Mandy girl! I have your pictures throughout the house. Whenever I pass your beautiful face I rub your little black nose and say "Hi Mandy girl" or "Good morning sweet Mandy". I participated in a rally a few days ago to bring attention to the Chinese practice of slaughtering dogs and cats for their fur. I had your picture hanging around my neck so you were with me. Many people brought their dogs but I knew that you were there in spirit. Some day there will be another dog but not yet. I still miss you so much and every time I look at other dogs I am looking for you. You were the love of my life and even though you are gone the sweet memories that you left me with will be here forever.


You're Not There Anymore!

I came home today and as I always do I looked for you at the back gate. You weren't there of course but when I close my eyes I can see you there waging your tail and greeting me. "It must be dinner time or at least I can come in, can't I?" I could always see those words in your beautiful brown eyes. I used to tease you by saying "Hi baby" and you would bounce up and down back when you could still bounce. You would start to run towards the back door then turn around and come back to see if I was still at the gate. We had our little ceremony that we went through. What an incredible joy it was to come home and always find you there eagerly waiting for me. What a blessing for me and the good thing was that I always knew it was a very special gift that you were giving me. I will always see you there. I have only to close my eyes and you are there. What an incredible gift God gave me when he put you in my life. Merry Christmas my little one.


Christmas 2005

Christmas was always a very special time with my Mandy. You are no longer here for me to put that red bow around your neck. You always looked so pretty. You loved to watch me decorate the Christmas tree and when I wrapped your presents (Treats) and put them under the tree I had to keep an eye on you because you would sneak under the tree and quickly devour them. Our little house was always so warm and festive during Christmas and I often wondered what you thought about the whole idea of dragging a tree into the house and attaching lights and ornaments to it. You used to stare at me as I fussed and I often wondered what you were thinking about. You are gone now but the memories will stay forever. This first Christmas without you will be especially painful but somehow I think that your spirit will be here and maybe if I try real hard I will feel you next to me again. I miss you so very much my pretty little one.
