September 10th 1990

Minnie loves to sleep, that's about it.

Minnie hates bees. She's allergic.

Favorite Toy:
She loves her Ugly, a monster-like stuff animal.

Favorite Food:
Anything she finds on the floor, cookies (doggie ones), and cat food when she can get her mouth on some.

Favorite Walk:
Minnie loves to walk, but now that she's old she can only go to the end of the street and back.

Best Tricks:
She can shake both hands.

Arrival Story:
Over 16 years ago we went to our local pet store for fish food. Minnie and her 8 brothers were in a cage on the floor. Her human brother and I were petting the puppies and Minnie, the runt, pushed her way to the front so we would have to pet her. We begged our mom and Minnie came home with us that night!

Minnie was very active in her youth. She could run a the length of a football field and back before you barely started. Now that she's 16 she has cushings disease which is a tumor in her brain that make her think she is hungry and thirsty ALL the time. She is on meds to help calm her disease now. Minnie loves to just relax and sleep all day now and we let her since she's so old. We know Minnie won't be with us too much longer but she has been the best dog ever. Minnie is also almost completely deaf and is going blind. Her sniffer still works and that's how she finds all the great crumbs on the kitchen floor. ****Update**** Minnie went to the Rainbow Bridge Friday September 29th, 2006 at 9:30 AM. Her illness made the decision easier on the family but it was still hard saying goodbye to our Little Minnie Moo. Minnie is now waiting at the Bridge with her best friend Lakota, our Shepard who died when he was 4. They are together again and running thru the fields like before. We Love You and Miss You Minnie Moose!

In the arms of my sister with Mommy and Daddy by my side I left this world to go to the Rainbow Bridge on Friday September 29th, 2006 at 9:30 AM. I was very sad to leave them but they told me I was a good girl and that they will love me forever. I wish my brother could have been there too but I understand why he could not be. I know he loved me and I didn't need him there to remind me of that fact. I was his 9th Birthday present and I know he cared for me alot. When I got here Lakota was waiting for me. I had not seen him since we were pups and he looked just the way I remembered him. He challenged me to a race like old times and I beat him of course! It is so beautiful up here. The grass is so soft and green, the water is incredibly fresh and they have cookies growing on trees for all of us to eat. I can tell you I ate about 50 of them and didn't gain a pound! I have to maintain my girlish figure still. I also found my Ugly here and have been playing with him endlessly. Good thing is he still has his eyes, nose and teeth on him so I can chew them off again. I could not be happier up here but do think of my family often. There is a special spot where we an go and look down on our familes to see how they are doing and send them Puppy Love from heaven. I can see my family is still sad about me but I know they will be ok soon. I made sure the cats were able to take care of them before I left and they are doing a great job. I am very happy to hear that all of my friends sent their love and prayers to my family during this tough time and I am so greatful to all of you.

Sending my Puppy Love from the Bridge to all my friends, especially my 10 and Overs who need my love the most. I will see you all one day again, untill then I'm gonna eat all the cookies I can and run and play.

Wags and Angel Kisses,


Time to say Goodbye

A few weeks ago I told you all that my time may be short but I really didn't know how short it was going to be. My time is soon my friends, sooner than anyone expected. My life has been a good one and I have been well loved and cared for, but now it's time for me to say goodbye. Since my 16th birthday 2 weeks ago I have been having troubles. I can no longer make it thru the day without accidents and usually I can't remember where I am or what I am doing. I find myself outside standing in the yard trying to remember what exactly what I am susposed to be doing. My eye sight is failing me and my hearing is not what it use to be. Sometimes I fall when I try to jump up the stairs and hurt my hips when I do. I am going to miss my family so much but they know I will be healthy and happy where I am going. I'm going to miss my mommy and our walks together, my brother and the special bond we have, my sister for loving me so much, and daddy for the best pets ever. I guess I'll even miss those pesky cats too. This Friday between 9 and 10 AM I will drift off to sleep and go to the Rainbow Bridge to see my best friend Lakota again. I know he is there waiting for me as well as all my other pup pals. Thank you all for the friendship you gave and the love you send. My family will really need the support that I can no longer give them once I leave. My 16 years have been a blessing and I am truely greatful for everything.

With much love,

Wags and Kisses

I made it!! I made it to my 16th Birthday after all!! Mommy said last year that she didn't think I would make it but I proved her wrong. I've been doing pretty good this week. No accidents! Also my brother came to visit me this weekend, I hadn't seen him for months. We got to play and hang out together like old times. Even though 16 years have passed I still think I'm a puppy even though my body say otherwise. I even got a special B-Day dinner, which means extra cookies! Just taking things one day at a time and hoping for the best. Thanks for the Birthday wishes and all the treats!!

Wags and Kisses,
