Likes: He Loved having his picture taken,being wrapped in a blanket, all snuggly, and to be rocked, shopping, "mommy and puppy time"
Pet-Peeves: Hated being left alone
Favorite Toy: His very first toy a stuffed cow, but anything that squeeked, or rolled was great too, he especially like the cats chase the ball tube
Favorite Food: Anything he could sneak, frenchfries, were the best!
Favorite Walk: In the yard running around the fence where his sister Tessa played
Best Tricks: He'd coming running, and prance in front of me, like "here Iam, here Iam" when I'd say,"Mommy can't find you!" Or trying to wake me up by backing up to the closet door and bump it with his butt, then run to the bed to see if I heard him,
Arrival Story: TedEbear was born in my backyard 3 weeks after his mama moved to Iowa from Tennessee, he was one of 7 pups, and the last to get a home, so I decided to keep him.
He was so adorable, but very tiny, so I knew something was wrong, but I wanted to give him the best life to be had.
Bio: TedEbear was a dwarf cause by HYPOTHYROIDISM. At about 3 months of age he started to have violent seizures, sometimes they would be 5 minutes in length other times 20 minutes. He could go weeks without one, or have 8 or more in a day. Most of the time he was cold, so I bought a heated for in my bedroom..or should I say HIS bedroom... This was the start of our "Mommy & Puppy" time, wrapping him in a blanket and rocking him while I watched tv. By 9 months things were pretty well straightened out, with meds, but as he'd start to grow, changes had to be made when he had seizures again.
He was about 2 when his fur started falling out, and he would be pretty naked in spots, so we went shopping to buy sweaters, he enjoyed people making a fuss over how cute he was.
At this point he still had not lost his baby teeth either, but in a way that was good, cause he happened to bite me a few times when he was having seizures, and its good that his teeth were still tiny. But I do have a few scars to always remember him by.
He was almost 2 when we decided it was safe to have him neutered, and in doing a chest x-ray, Kim, our vet, noticed his heart was larger than it should be. Then 6 months later when he had to have another x-ray, it showed his heart had doubled in size, so I knew life for him was not going to be too long
He was my constant companion for 3 1/2 years, still tiny, so he got to be carried a lot, one of his biggest joys! The most he weighed was 9#. This past April (2006) I has 2 heartattacks, and when I came home from the hospital, he was acting terribly "needy". He was very cold all the time, so we spent a lot of time in the rocker, wrapped in a blanket, and at night he got to sleep in my bed, that was when I noticed his breathing was slowing down a lot. I was 5 days from going back to work, the afternoon of May 25th 2006, we were watching tv all snuggled in a blanket in the rocker, when he took his last breath. We went to the local HobbyLobby store and bought a little pine chest, I wrapped him in his blanket, and tucked him inside with 2 of his favorite toys.
Enjoy your stay at THE RAINBOW BRIDGE, my baby, till I come to get you, and we'll never be apart.
Here is the beautiful gift I lead Mommy to, for her to purchase in my Memory. I had a hard time trying to keep it safe from someone else getting it, until I knew the time was right for Mommy to get it.
I think you will all agree...its beeeautiful!! And it's all hand made by one of Mommys new friends.
WoW!! Tomorrow is my birthday, the years seem to go by so fast. AND..tomorrow is also a Friday the 13th, the first time that has happened since we(TessaSue and I and our other furblings) were born.
Mommys ahead of the game this year,BOL, she has my picture all ready, and a little poem too.It all came to her...but we all know it comes from me...right?? This afternoon, and it was finished in a flash! The picture was the hardest past. I love it!!
Well, time sure does change everything...doesn't it???
Last evening, 8-28-13, my best furiend in the doggy world, (next to my own sister, Tessa Sue, that is) made his journey, here to Rainbow Bridge.
Would all my Angel furiends please welcome Nitro? Angel Nitro
And please sprinkle Angel Dust over our family on earth. They are having a really hard time with losing him. He was the sweetest guy to me when I was trying to grow up. Pretty neat for such a 'giant'! Nitro was a Rottweiler, bred, born, and raised by my Mommys son and his wife. They have been living with Mommy since I was a baby. Her son has a bad disease called 'crohn' and he has been really sick in the past. Right now he is on the edge of remission, and we pray he doesn't take a turn for the worse, with all this stress.
TedEbear with ღ, goin to play with my bro Nitro once again.
