Yummy homemade recipe

Trick...I am to spoiled to do tricks! Unless being really cute is a trick!
I must share how much I love my little Dancer. This little guy has given me a lot to look forward to from the day he was born. It all started when I received a phone call from a friend whose neighbor had moved out of their apartment and left this pitiful little female Chihuahua. I ran right over to check on her. She was underweight, dehydrated and pregnant! I took her to my vet who informed me that all in all she would be ok. Three weeks later she delivered two puppies. The first was a little girl that was adopted by a wonderful couple. Next came little Dancer. He was 1/4 his sister's size.
I stayed by their sides for the first three days. Dancer seemed to nurse but was not growing at all. My vet told me he was probably premature and told me we should consider putting him down. He told me he probably wouldn't develop and would always have major problems. I refused to believe this.
Two weeks after he was born he stopped nursing. I took over, refusing to give up on him. He rebounded! He still did not seem to grow much, but he did start to develop normal growth habits. Now he is a normal, happy, playful little guy. He is just very, very small. He weighs 18 ounces and is only five inches tall and is the love of my life!
While this may not seem like a big deal to most...this little guy helped me as much as I helped him. I was born with Congenital Toxoplasmosis (I have holes in my maculas) and have lost my ability to drive due to vision loss. Now that he is a Certified Therapy Dog, it gets me and him out of the house to help others feel better about life!

I can't believe it....you would have been 4 today! I still miss you so much little one and think of you often. Your little memorial garden is blooming so nicely and when I go and sit there to talk to you, Trooper and the rest of the fur babies that are at the bridge, I can feel you there with me. I still wish you were here squeeking at me to pick you up. Sometimes I can still here you and feel your little fuzzy ears under my chin. I just wanted to let you know that you are never forgotten and thought of often. Give the big guy a kiss and hug from mommy and daddy....we love you forever little man!

I can't believe it has been one year since you left me. It seems like just yesterday I was holding you in my hands listening to your little squeeky bark...god I miss that. My heart is still hurting so much and I guess it always will...you were that one special little guy...who touched my heart and my life so deeply. I know that life goes on...but...it sucks! You will always have a place in my heart forever little man and will never be forgotten!
I Love You Forever Little Man!
