   Leave a bone for Skeeter, in Loving Memory

Skeeter Bug, Bug, Buggy Boy

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

January 26th 1998

To play fetch with his tennis balls, go on car rides, and to sleep on Mommy's bed.

Our puppy Maddie. Making him go potty in the rain. The Vets office.

Favorite Toy:
His tennis balls----they're the only toy he will play with.

Favorite Food:
I make home made dog food for Skeeter now and he loves it. He's gaining weight and he looks so much healthier.

Favorite Walk:
ANYWHERE outside

Best Tricks:
He gives wet, sloppy kisses even when he isn't asked to.

Arrival Story:
An older couple had bought Skeeter from a breeder. Skeeter grew up to be a dog who LOVES the great outdoors and he kept getting away from the people and they were too old to have to keep going after him so they advertised him to give away; Skeeter was nine months old. After interviewing 23 other people our family was chosen as Skeeter\'s new forever family.

I love to play fetch with my tennis balls, and I LOVE to dig holes under the fence and disappear when no one is looking. Mom and Dad sorta put a damper on that one tho when they poured concrete directly under the fence-------I can\'t dig thru it anymore. Sometimes someone forgets to shut the utility room door when Dad is in the garage and I can sneak out then and spend a few hours roaming the neighborhood-------the Animal Control guy caught me once and called Mom and she came right over to get me and didn\'t even yell at me.

It's a dog's life

One year ago today

It was exactly one year ago today that I came to the Rainbow Bridge. My Mommy's heart is still hurting, and she still cries over me sometimes, but she knows how happy I am here, and she finds it comforting knowing that I'm not sick anymore.

I've had one full year of the best life I could ever wish for. No pain and no sickness, not even a little headache. I have more energy than I EVER had on earth (even tho some would find that hard to believe, bol). I can play fetch all day long and never get tired. I have wonderful angel friends.

I've been re-united with my pal, Spikey, who has lived here for seven years now. I sure missed her...........even tho she can be a pest at times. My cat, Tigger, even found me!! YES, I said "MY CAT".........I watched him be born and he always thought I was his daddy. We ate and slept together until that fateful day he got outside and Mom didn't know it and he went to the bridge.

I've witnessed the most amazing reunions when a human passes over the bridge and comes to take his doggy to heaven. I sometimes wish my humans would come for me, but I know it's not their time just yet. But SOMEDAY I'll hear that big bark in the sky and I'll know it's my turn to run to the end of the Bridge to wait. I'll wag my little stubby until it falls off coz I'll be so excited!! It will be nice to see my boy again. No one could throw a ball like my boy could.

I'm happy here. I love you all and miss you, but one day we'll be back together.


The puppies are coming!!

May 31, 2007, two weeks after I went to the Bridge, my puppies are being born. Maddie went into labor on the 30th around 2:00 p.m. and began hard labor around 11:00 p.m. with the first puppy being born at 12:50 a.m....a little girl. She is white with light brown markings like her Mommy; she is also fairly large and has the sweetest little cry. She has tiny pink feet and hands with the smallest toes you've ever seen. Maddie is learning to let the baby nurse but it's a challenge so Mom and my human sister are trying to help. Even Dad got out of bed to see the first puppy born!!
Right now Maddie is resting; Mom and my human sister have left the room so that IF any more pups are going to be born Maddie can have her privacy. They will check on her every half hour to make sure the baby is nursing and warm enough and if Maddie needs anything. After all Maddie is only seven months old; she's a very young mother. But she's being a good mom so far.

1.) I NEVER played with any toy other than a tennis ball in my entire life.

2.) I knew the difference between the commands "move" and "down". When asked to move I would scoot over. When told to get down I would get down.

3.) I LOVED to sleep under a blanket on mom's bed; preferably when Mom was taking a nap too.

4.) I was a super fast kisser and even if you thought you were prepared for it I would get you before you were ready.

5.) I would pee in the house if I got mad at mom.

6.) I LOVED to roll in smelly stuff.

7.) I was really good about taking baths.
