   Leave a bone for Acey (RIP 1995-2007)

Acey-Girl, Sweetie-Girl, Daddy's Girl, Momma's Honey, Big Momma

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

April 27th 1995

Food, pig ears, her toys, tickle belly & her Daddy (ok, Mommy, too!)

Fireworks, thunder, small critters

Favorite Toy:
The new "Big Yellow Man", Kitty Cat, little green man, fishy, tennis balls

Favorite Food:
All!!! Especially loves "human" food

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere other than Waldbaums, the beach

Best Tricks:
Throwing the ball (yes- she does), bounces the ball, high-five

Arrival Story:
Acey was a surprise gift for her daddy's birthday from his sister. When he unwrapped a dog dish, he wasn't sure if this dish was for him (ha)or if it meant something more. Being the only pup raised by her single Dad, Acey exhibited signs of "above-average" intelligence. She knows the difference between a new toy and an old (just ask her to bring you her newest toy)- but even more impressive, she can find the newest tennis ball, even if they all look the same. When she wants to play catch, she will bounce and catch the ball, or throw it to you. If it's just past dinner time and she's hungry, she will throw her bowl at you to let you know! If you tell her Grandma is on the phone, she waits for you to put the phone to her ear so she can hear Grandma say hello, then kisses the phone in response! I came into this family with Emmy and Gizmo, and it was as if we were together all along.

Acey was named for legendary guitarist Ace Frehley, who shares the same birthday. Her Daddy is a BIG Ace and Kiss is Acey!

My beautiful Acey....
I can only hope that you know how very much you are missed here on this earth. Every day without you is a challenge, knowing you are not here to greet me by the door.

Daddy has not been the same since you left. His grief is overwhelming and getting worse each and every day. He cannot comprehend why you had to leave him, and nothing I do or say will help.

I hope that you are watching down over us, especially your Daddy. He needs to know that you are still there...


Rest Peacefully, Sweety-Girl

Acey lost her battle this past Saturday, July 28th.

The diagnosis of cancer that gave us only four weeks lasted nine months. This time was truly a gift from God.

We did everything we could, never knowing when the end would come. The longer it went on, the more hope grew within me.

There was never a day that I didn't tell Acey how very much I loved her. We had a special bond, almost as if she picked me for her Daddy. She loved me just as much, it was never in question. She was my first kiss when I walked in the door, my last kiss before I went to sleep. She greeted me every morning when I came out to leave for work. I never had to tell her to be a good girl...she just was.

If I took the keys to run out to the car for something and didn't say goodbye and kiss her, she would bark till I came back in. If I told her I would be right back (even if I was going to work), she would be fine. She was as much mine as she was Steve's...and I was hers as well.

My heart is so terribly broken. Steve seems to be handling it better than I am, though I know he is dealing with his grief while he is alone. The wounds of losing Emmy haven't yet healed, and now losing my big girl has devastated me.

I knew she was in pain Saturday, and I couldn't see letting her suffer. She is in peace now, but the pain is left for us.

I love you, my beautiful girl....


It's so sad

Mommy and Daddy haven't been the same since Emmy left. Mommy looks like hell. They are so sad. I wish I could actually talk to them and tell them how sorry I am.

Emmy left us on the 26th. Daddy was a wreck by the time Mommy got home from work and when he told her he thought it 'was time', Mommy lost it. She seemed to be running around in circles and I don't think I ever saw her cry so hard. I felt so bad.

When they came home, Mommy kissed me and told me she loved me, then went to bed. She wasn't the same. Neither is Daddy.

If it's this bad now, what will happen when I go to the bridge? Mommy tells me that Emmy will be waiting for me now. But what about them? Who will take care of them?
