Arrival Story: Okay tomorrow October 1 Willa will be with us for two years. Where oh where did all that wonderful time go? Our love for you, my Willa has grown and you have shown us more sides to you this past year.
When did you learn to talk? I love the fact that you will do the talking when you want our attention, and the boy Tugg lets you.
Once again I get to thank the powers that rule our lives for sending you to us.
Happy forever day! Looking foward to the next year and what ever wonderful adventures you take us on.
Bio: Adoption Date: 1 October 2006...This is when she got her "forever home."
She came originally from Texas and is now back where the breed started in Boston. Now that she has been with us longer we find she has some wonderful habits.
She loves her kong stuffed with peanut butter and cheese.
Plays with Tugg a lot, chases him around the table in the dinning
She does the fetch thing with her stuffed toys. Enjoys just sitting in the backyard so long as she has company. She has begun to smile a lot and now has a twinkle in her eyes all the time.
The fact that we love her is starting to show in her.
So it will be one year tomorrow since you left us. I must say that it still hurts my Heart when I think of you. When Tugg sees a Boston he stops (still looking for you). Nana Carol talks of you often, which causes us all to remember you, and how you were always determined to get everyone you met to notice you and love you. Your "Daddy" is lonesome for you though he does his best to not show it.
I still remember when you first came home with me and met Tugg and Missy along with mom and everyone else. You were such a site. No fur on your tail or hindquarters.
I know that you were here for such a short time, but I also know it was a wonderful time.
I will always hold you in my heart, I will forever miss you.
I will always love you and will feel whole agin someday when you greet me at the
Rainbow Bridge with all the others that have gone before you. For I know that they are with you and you are not alone.
I am writing this because I need to. Willa was with us for only shy of 5 years. While she was with us I believe she found happiness. When she came she was just awful looking and seemed so unloved. Yet for all that she had spunk and fight in her.
She was my first rescue, when we met my husband actually asked if I was sure about her. I said oh yes she is the one I want. My girl was so sad looking, yet I knew she was perfect for us. You see she came to help me through the loss of Maggie my first Boston and she truly did that.
Willa loved her "ducky" David (my husband) did not especially during the news. Tugg the Pug got pushed around by her all the time. Laser lights amazed her. For that matter if you had a flashlight she was right by your side. She loved to stop and watch construction workers she thought she was a supervisor. They loved to watch her as well. She always managed to hang around my husband when he did work in the house. I think she honestly felt she helped him.
I do not know what life she had before she came to me, but I know she brought great joy to our home. I will miss her, no longer will she be with me as I cook looking for peppers or cukes, you see she loved fruit and veggies. I gave them to her. I shared my Clementines with her.
This is my farewell to her and to all of you hug your four legged buddies, hold them tight for there is never enough time, never enough moments to share and keep and never enough hugs and kisses to give and share
Good by Willa I miss you and know that we will meet once more.
