I'll start this entry by thanking everyone who has sent me messages of condolence. Thank you so much for your kindness.

I write this entry with reluctance because the reality of losing Mini still pains me. I'll leave this here since people are understandably asking me how this all happened. Writing it all out once will be easier than repeating it. I feel stupid being so emotional but Mini wasn't "just a dog" she was a family member and a part if me. When she passed a part of my heart went with her. It's growing back, slowly, but will likely never be quite the same. Dogster has always been a safe place, dog lovers untied and a special community that I have missed.

Mini's transition to the Rainbow Bridge: On Halloween night Mini greeted her first rick or treater (she loved kids) and as she went to go outside she kinda slumped over and pooped. I thought maybe she got scared but no, Mini was essentially paralyzed but was feeling a lot of pain. We rushed her to a trusted emergency Vet right away but even with an $8000 surgery Mini would have a less than 10% chance of not only walking again (Vet wouldn't even say she saw potential for that at all), but of using her bowels on her own and not being in pain everyday of her life. The Vet said it was a degenerative disc and that because Mini was in good shape, showed no signs of pain previously and this still happened so suddenly.. It was the worst case scenario with the smallest potential for positive outcomes.

It's been months but even as I type this I am crying. That was the hardest night of my life,I know we did what was best for Mini but I also know she was a special dog and no dog can replace her. I am trying to be thankful that I was fortunate enough to have such an amazing, special dog in my life. Hershey and Winkie's mom told me that every once in a while a person is fortunate enough to find their "Heart Dog" a dog who has a special bond with you, a unique connection. I am sure that Mini was mine and absolutely my husband's Heart Dog. She was so intuitive, she knew us as well as we knew her and I am trying to just be grateful to have had her in my life for almost 8 years.

2014 was a really tough year, Itchy is starting to heal some oft that pain, especially since him and Kiki are fast friends.. but I'll always miss Mini.

I will end this entry by explaining the title and describing Mini's last few minutes with us. When it was time, Mini was wrapped in a blanket, we were in a private, almost cozy room with her. I could tell she was confused and I didn't want her to leave us with fear in her heart. I was able to keep my tears at bay and in an effort to soothe Mini I think I also comforted my husband who really broke that night. I had Mini's head in my hands, I was rubbing her ears and I began telling her about the awesome adventure she was about to embark on. I said she would be able to chase squirrels every single day! She could knock over garbage cans and have unlimited amounts of tissue to rip up.. And never be in trouble! I went I and on about all the great stuff she could do, in her last second she looked at us and sighed the cutest sigh before taking the bridge to her new home.

I will always miss Mini but I am comforted knowing that all dogs go to heaven.


My Butt Exploded!

Hello everyone,

This Diary entry will be written with embarassment and some pain.

The story begins yesterday when I was licking my butt a lot so Momma and Daddy looked at it. (How embarassing!) My butt looked normal so they decided they'd keep and eye on me and if I kept up the licking they would take me to the Vet to get my anal glands looked at. (Although I've never had issues with them before!)

This morning,

Momma:"Mini, let's go outside!"
Me: *Waddle *Waddle *Waddle..
Momma: *Cringe.. "Honey hurry, come look it Mini's butt!"
Daddy: *Comes running.. *Looks at butt, "EWWWUGHHH! Call the Vet!"

So we go to the Vet, (Thank dogness he was open on a Sunday!), and apparently one of my anal glands exploded!! (He actually said "ruptured") So that explained the cringe worthy, oozy bump on my butt this morning.

I am very mad at the Vet. He shaved my butt, put his finger in places he shouldn't, poked 2 needles in my butt and even had the nerve to say if this happens again I would have to get butt surgery! Did I mention he did ALL of that stuff PLUS cut my nails AND did that in front of Kiki!!!! EMBARASSING!! I was VERY mad and I whined and wiggled A LOT!

... to make matters worse my butt is leaking goo AND I have a cone of shame. I NEVER needed a cone before and I HATE it. I bit the cone when Momma and the Vet tried to put it over my head. Then Momma called me a baby and said Kiki was tougher than me. How rude.

We got home, Momma bought me dried chicken treats, she wont take the cone off AND I walked into the door frame.. the couch.. the stairs.. another door frame.. and my bed. Momma exploded, (aka "ruptured"), into laughter each time.

Wish me luck. We're going back to the V-E-T once I am done my medicine, probably next week.

Oh joy.
