I finally realized that I can never say good bye to my sweet girl. Only, see you again my wonderful little friend.
ChiChi was my best girl. She came into our family as a tiny little flea infested, worm ridden puppy. She was the first puppy we bought as a family. And we spoiled her rotten. Only the best for ChiChi. And she loved us right back, regardless how we felt, how we looked or for what we owned.
And did she ever get into stuff. She would jump onto the kitchen table and steal your sandwich, or onto my computer desk and take anything she could get away with before we caught her.
When she got sick we would fret over her just like one of the kids. We took her to vet at the drop of a hat, stayed up late at night until she felt better, or just hold her and love her until she fell asleep. Oh, for the love of our friends. How we worry so about them.
When ChiChi passed away, my world changed forever. We had Opal at the time, and since ChiChis' passing, Olive came to us. But ChiChi, she was different. Maybe because she was the first. No, because ChiChi stole my heart right from the first.
The hole in my heart will never fully close, the pain, even though is not as severe, is still there. I still look for you at the window, and can actually smile at the memory sometimes. But not always.
So ChiChi, it is never good bye. I know you wait for me, ever so patiently, just like at the window, but now only at the Bridge. So until then, my sweet girl, run full throttle until I get there. I love you...Mommy
