Likes:
Eating and riding in the car! She was co-pilot!

Pet-Peeves:
Honestly, I can't remember any...she was so easy going. Probably her "itchy-scratchies" from her allergies.

Favorite Toy:
She didn't play too much while we had her, because she was a bit older.

Favorite Food:
Everything she wasn't supposed to eat!

Favorite Walk:
Around the neighborhood.

Best Tricks:
Keeping the bed warm!

Arrival Story:
Gypsy came to me through DalSavers. When she came, well, she was a tad bit overweight. But, she blended right in with the family. She absolutely LOVED riding in the car! And eating, anything, including anything she WASN'T supposed to. On 9/11/01, we were at the vet because she wasn't eating and her stomach was hard as a rock...the next day, the surgeon removed a headband, a rubber ball, a swimsuit, and other items FROM HER STOMACH!! And that didn't really teach her...she loved to eat! She also had terrible allergies, so she and I pretty much made monthly trips to the vet who specialized in canine allergies. Ultimately, the various corticosteroids she was on destroyed her kidneys.

Bio:
My Gypsy saw me through some very bad times. She was my faithful companion, my go-to girl when things got rough. When I met my then boyfriend (now husband), she immediately "took" to him...so I knew he was a good pick because she APPROVED! Perhaps the reason she left when she did is because she knew her job was done. She had protected and loved me when I needed it most, and she left knowing that I was happy and loved by another...she knew she could let go and that I'd be okay. We had just moved into our first house. She was with us there for two weeks before I had to make the awful decision. And, what's worse, is I missed her passing by 5 minutes. My Mom and Fiance were there with her, but I missed it by five minutes. I don't think I can ever forgive myself for not being there at her last. But I never will let go of you...my sweet Gypsy Girl, or the fond memories you have given me. I will meet you at the bridge...and I can't wait to hug you again! I am SO thankful that you were part of my life.

Whispers from Heaven


I Still Miss You So

Dear Gypsy Girl,

I still miss you...so much. I don't come to your page as often as I should, mostly because I get so sad. I type this with tears in my eyes, missing you. I know you're OK...that you're enjoying Heaven as you should, and that you still see things down here. I just hope you know how much I love you. You were my girl when I went through some tough times with a nasty job and a nasty "marriage"...thank you for being there for me...for helping me through.

Until we meet again, my dear spotted one. I hold your memory in my heart.

All My Love,
Mama

 

We never...

To all our dear friends,

If you are reading this, or even see that we've posted an entry, it means that you are one of our friends. And, we are so grateful for that.

We joined in May of this year, never realizing how much fun we'd have, how much we'd learn, or how many WONDERFUL pups and pawrents we'd come into contact with. We never realized how attached we'd get to some of them, or how much the passing of our friends through Dogster would crush us, break our hearts, or make us cry. We never realized how much we would pray for someone we'd never meet, or how often they would cross our minds throughout a "normal" day.

We never wanted to just reach out and hug someone, whether in celebration of something, or to try to take away the pain, like we have since joining Dogster. We never realized how much joy could come from someone acknowledging our silliness, or someone congratulating us on some achievement, or the comfort in getting a "hug" back when we ourselves had a bad day. We never knew there'd be so many listening ears or kind words as we've known to be here.

We never knew we'd learn so much, whether about making our page pretty or making ourselves healthier. We never knew about so many resources to help us be the best we could be. We never knew we'd be able to share little things that others outside of this site don't care to hear, so we wouldn't even mention it to them. We never knew that what we might say might influence someone's day. We never knew we had the power to make someone smile, until someone here thanked us for brightening their day.

For listening to our silly stories...we thank you. For all your kinds thoughts and hugs when we had bad days...we thank you. For all the times that someone celebrated us, or brought smiles to our faces...we thank you. For all these things we never knew that we never knew...we thank you. For making this a wonderful 2008...we thank you. For being our friends and being part of our lives in such a special way...we thank you. For holding a special place in our hearts in a way only you can...we thank you. And we love you.

Happy New Year , dear friends, and may good times and smiling faces continue in 2009. The sad times will come, as they inevitably do. But we'll be here to hug and listen. We'll be here to try to cheer you when you need it. We'll be here...and it's because of you.

Love,
Tipper, Maxxie, Gypsy, Kitty, Sandy, and Gracie

 

****HQ APPROVED**** PLEASE HELP ATTICUS

I contributed $10 for his cause through PayPal. It's so little in comparison to the cost, but every bit helps and I know Atticus would be so very grateful! I guess I am also thinking of what my pal, Tucker, went through and wishing I could have done something to help him.

Please do what you can. If you can't contribute (which is completely understandable with today's economy), please keep Atticus in your thoughts and prayers.

Luv,
Gypsy

****HQ APPROVED**** PLEASE HELP ATTICUS

Hello to all my pals. I want to ask a big favor of all of you. Please go and visit my pal Atticus's page. Just click on the LINK above.

The name that has been given to me is Atticus. I am really the sweetest pup you will ever find. I have just had a rough start in my life. Please read my bio for my story.
So far I have found how wonderful life can be. I just love to play, but right now I have a really hard time just going out to potty. My back is hurt really bad. If I do not get treatment soon, I could become completely paralyzed.
I am so thankful for the kind humans that are trying their very best to help me. They have taken me to see the person they call the vet. I heard them say I need something called surgery. This will give me the chance at a normal pup life. I want to be normal like the other pups at my foster home. Right now, I have to stay inside all the time and just watch them out the window. This makes me cry!
I also heard my foster humans say this surgery is going to cost $6500.00.
I am not sure what this really means. I heard them say it is a lot of money and they must raise the money by Oct. 28. They said this is when I am scheduled to have this surgery thing done. I want it so bad. I want to be able to run and play like all my pals. Without it, this will never happen and I will start to get a lot of pain, then I will not be able to even go out for a potty break.
I am a pup with a lot of love to give and a very big heart! My foster humans tell me times are really bad for people right now. That it will be hard to get this thing they call money. If any of you out there has even a dollar to spare, will you please help them get this money?
Dogster has been so kind as to allow us to ask for your help. Without all you pups, I just do not know what I would or will do.

If you can find anything you can give to help me here is the way to do it.
You can send the money right to the place that will be doing my surgery:

NCSU-Vet Teaching School at NC State University
4700 Hillsborough Street
Ralieigh, NC 27606
Case #142791

Please be sure and give them this case # and tell them it is for me.
Or you can donate through the wonderful rescue that is trying hard to get me this money:
http://www.southerncrossgsd.com/pages/dogstories/att icus.shtml
This address will take you right to the page they have made just for me.
I will be ever so grateful for anything any of you pups can do. No amount is to small!
Love to all!!

Atticus means so much to our family. No help is to small. Thank you my pals!!
Love you all!!
