Arrival Story: My husband came home one day and said that a girl at work had to get rid of this dog. We had 2 dogs already. I said we don't need another dog. He said let's just go look and see what she looks like. I didn't even know what kind of a dog she was. Well, we pull up to this trailer, it was mid July, about 95 degrees outside and the trailer had no air. I bet it was 100 degrees inside that trailer. The font door had a screen door on it and there was this little bitty dog jumping up on the screen door trying to see who was coming. Of course one look at this precious little girl and my heart melted. We went inside to see her and she was jumping up on me and giving me kisses and wagging her tail so much. I had never say a more happier dog. Well, long story short, she came home with us. While we were in the trailer I looked at her food bowl and what she had to eat must have been for large dogs, it was big round, hard pieces of dry dog food. I have no idea how she ate it! It was so big and thick and hard. We took her home and we had steak that night and that little girl ate like she hadn't eaten in days.
Needless to say she was a delight of a dog. She was 2 years old when we got her and full of life and fun.
She was a "snuggler." She loved to get under the covers and sleep right next to me. She love to go for rides in the car. All you had to say was bye-bye and she was at the door wagging her tail ready to go. She traveled all over the United States we us. We snuck her into every hotel that we stayed in, even the Hilton, in Sarasota, FL! She never barked or made any messes where ever we went.
She was so trusting. She knew we were there for her no matter what. She was the most loving and caring dog I have ever had. No matter what kind of a mood you were in, she would not let you be down or in a bad mood. She always had plenty of kisses and love for me, as I did for her. The other 2 dogs accepted her just like she had been there from the start. They were a "pack" from day one.
Bio: When she was about 7 she developed a heart murmur. We gave her medicine which seemed to make things better for her. She never showed any kind of pain or stress the whole time. She led a good, happy, normal life. One day she went into our room and laid on a small rug and went peacefully to the Bridge. She was 10 years young. I really don't think I have ever felt the pain of a broken heart as bad as I have with the lose of her. With the bad there always comes good. After her passing in December of 2006 we were blessed with being able to get our new little Foxy. So her life lives on thru our new Foxy, and life goes on.....
Oh my dogness! I can't believe it!! I asked the sweet, handsome, cute and good looking Pee Wee to be my forever Valentine and HE SAID YES!!! Can you believe it? Both of us are here at the Bridge and we are having soooo much fun. He is so wonderful and makes me so happy. What a sweetheart he is. I am the luckiest girl in the whole world!!
Well, my sweet Angel, it is December 2008. It has been 3 years since you left me and went to the Bridge. It seems like it has been an eternity to me. I remember at Christmas you were always smelling around all of the presents. I would always put a few presents of course for you and it's like you knew which ones were yours. Remember, I do. You loved the fact that at this time of year there was always a lot of special cooking going on, you loved that! You were on constant patrol of the kitchen floor! How cute you were when you looked up at me with those beautiful eyes that I could never say no to. You got your share of "special bites" of turkey and ham. Remember, I do.
I miss you my love. I have your pictures sitting everywhere in the house so I won't feel like your gone. Foxy is doing a great job at making sure I don't get sad about you. She has her special ways of making me laugh when it seems like all I want to do is cry. She is really smart! She has been a real blessing to me since you have been gone. She loves to go "bye-bye' just like you did. She loves being spoiled, just like you did. She is totally different than you but she has made her place in my heart. That I am thankful for. I never wanted to have a another baby just like you. I wanted to be able to have another baby and love them in a different way that made it special for me and her, she has allowed me to do that.
I'll say goodbye for now my little Angel. I feel the closest to you at this time of the year. I'm not sure why but I do. It's time for me to turn the lights on the Christmas tree, that always makes me think of you. There is this special group that I joined here that is called RBAB. This year a lot of the Angels sent Christmas cards out. It has made this Christmas a little easier. I have every card that I recieved, on the tree. I will cherish them forever. Everyone has a baby that they have loved and lost. It is not easy to do that but it happens. Goodbye sweetie, remember I will always Love you, remember, I will.
Wow, who would have ever thought that my first Diary entry would bring so much attention to me and mom!!! First of all, as you all know that was my first diary and it was hard fur mom to write ok, we got passed that. Then the next mornin' we check our pmails and OMD there was a message from Dogster HQ, we thought we might have said something wrong in my diary but we didn't, MY DIARY GOT PICKED AS DIARY OF THE DAY!!!! Thank you Dogster HQ for that honor. Me and mom couldn't believe it!
