LB, Bessie me Mucho, Sausage, Saucy Sauce, Tiny Dancer

Quick Bio:

She liked her schedule, sunning in the backyard, treats, butt skritches

Thunder, motorcycles, anything in the sky including falling leaves, any rumbling sound, anything paw-related

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Food:
Greenies (even though I've changed my mind about them I'm not sure I would have had the heart to put her through withdrawal).

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:
She didn't really do any tricks, she could jump very high though

Arrival Story:
The day before we were going to move out of our apartment and re-locate an hour away, my husband was letting Winnie out and Lil' Bessie trotted by unattended. She settled in front of an apartment and he knocked on the door and asked if she was theirs. They said she wasn't but had been feeding her, they said they had seen her with a homeless man before she settled there. He brought her home and we kind of tried to find her a new home but eventually realized we loved her too much to let her go. She also had problems I think would have gotten her returned after any adoption.

She went beserk during thurnderstorms, she even did some damage to our houses because of it. She did not like her paws messed with. In the backyard she rarely barked at people but was happy to let everyone know whenever there was a plane, cloud, bird, or leaf in the sky. We're not sure who's keeping America's skies safe now that she's gone. She was a starer, you'd look over and there she'd be all settled down staring at you. She was a sweetheart. We thought she was a puppy when we found her but she was full grown at 33 lbs. Her death is a blur to us. Winnie had just died and a little over two weeks later Bessie died unexpectantly from what we think was an extremely aggresive liver cancer. Its a very long story but she went from being perfectly fine to gone in less than two weeks. She broke our hearts, we were really looking forward to letting her be the only dog for awhile. We thought she was only about 8 years old, but we really had no idea so she could have been as old as Winnie (14) for all we know. We miss her very much.

Forums Motto:
Its Lil Bessie Time

The Last Forum I Posted In:

Evening schedule:
Feeding Time, Wandering Time, Cuddling Time, Staring Time, Rest Time


Ice Cube Tycoon:
She really enjoyed ice cubes, we were thinking of letting her start a line of "Lil Bessie Brand Ice Cubes."

Remembering Lil Bessie

Jenkins Tagged Lil' Bessie!

Jenkins cheated and tagged Lil' Bessie so I'd write a new diary entry for her!

7 Bessie facts:

1. She once sent Winnie to the emergency vet after they fought over a peice of food.
2. She had little brown eyebrows, we often reminded her of this.
3. When we lived in an apartment and there was a thunderstorm in the middle of the night, her dad would have to go sit in front of her crate and tell her to shush everytime it thundered.
3. She would attack her dad's lawnmowing shoes in the backyard when she heard planes or rumbly things. Why her dad left his lawnmowing shoes out for her to attack is a mystery.
4. She loved sunbathing
5. She had a purple collar and matching leash.
6. Her tag was a pink bow.
7. She and our neighbor's dog Cesar were good pals. He would do a little dance when he saw her for the first time when we came back from out of town.


What Lil Bessie Knew

Ok, well, she didn't know much. She pretty much knew two words: "LilBessie" and "Monkey." When you would ask her "where's your monkey?" she would go find her current toy. It wasn't necissarily a monkey, that was just her first toy. We decided not to confuse matters by specifying "ball" or "rope," she had learned "monkey" so we stuck with that!


Diary Intro

I wanted to start a diary for Bessie as a way to put in writing (or typing!) some of my memories since my brain doesn't have saveable backup. Some memories might be sad, some funny, some showing some serious lack of judgement on her parent's part, but ultimately its a way to remember her and let a few other people know how much she meant to us.

Entry 1: One Last Thing

As mentioned in Jenkins' diary, we all went to visit my sister-in-law, brother-in-law, and nephew this past weekend. They recently lost two of their pets and my sister-in-law mentioned finding some really great looking containters/urns made by a local potter she was thinking of putting the ashes in. Regarding Winnie and Bessie's ashes, we hadn't quite decided what to do with them. We feel that scattering them is a nice idea but we don't want to scatter them somewhere we may end up living far from in the future. In addition I've felt kind of comforted having their ashes in the house (they are in the boxes they came in with their names on it). A little morbid yes, but you deal the way you deal.

Anyway, I think I've decided I would also like to keep them in a nice container, box, urn, vase, etc. Picking it out will give us one more thing we can do for them and it will be a nice way of having them in our daily lives.

P.S. I know this entry is the same as Winnie's but it really applies to both of them and it'll be the only dual entry.
