Getting bones and hiding them, socks, hair scrunchies, sleeping under your arm, walks, the beach.
Loud noises, fire sirens.
Anywhere on the beach.
I was 6 years old, and my brother had a bird named Skippy. I wanted to get a gold fish. We went to a pet shop to find a fish for me to get. As soon as we walked in we saw the most beautiful puppy ever. My mother who had never been a dog person, asked to see the little white dog....she held Dixie for two hours, and eventually wanted to take her home. She then became my Dixie Doodle.

To my Dixie Doodle,
It makes me so sad to know our time is coming to an end. I've never in my life thought of you as my dog, but literally as my family member, my best friend. You came into my life when I was six years old, and ever since that day you have been the best dog anyone could ever ask for. My life without you will be completly empty. You are my dog, my first and only beautiful dog. I don't care that you ate Skippy. I would give Skippy up for you anyday. You have been there for me for every single bad time in my life. You put up with me and James when we would dress you up and make you dance and talk. What other dog would do that? Sit there and take it and act like it's okay. Only you. You have seen some horirble things for a doggy, but never once have you stopped being our best friends, or family memberfor 12 great years. I will miss your bark, your crazy puppy dreams where you act like you are running, your crazy obsession with cheese and cheese wrappers, sleeping on any pile of clothes you can find, falling asleep while sitting up, your crazy doggy howls when you hear fire sirens or you ate too mucha nd your tummy hurts, the way you treat any bone we give you like it is a child, sunbathing in the backyard or front porch, and just being the best dog. You made mom like dogs, from the second she held you in Parrots of the World, you weren't going anywhere, you were her Dixie. You gave me and James our dog as a child, something for us to bond over. You gave me someone to sit with when I was sad and lonely and felt alone. And I always felt like you listened to me. You know more secrets about me then anyone else. And it's great because you can't tell anyone. =) I know it's stupid, bt you are my best friend. It's silly, but for me to imagine a day when I cannot walk downstairs and see you passed out on the sofa, the thought of that makes me go absolutely crazy, sad, mad. I sometimes wish you were human so you could tell me what to do in this situation, and tell me if you are in pain, because how am I supposed to know? I see you acting differernt and getting skinnier, and sadder. But then you have moments where you act exactly as you did when we first got you and you would run around the backyard doing circles and figure eights. I wish you could tell me. But then again, I am happy you have been there for me as my dog without judgement. Never caring what I looked like, or how fat I felt today, or if I was being bitchy. You never judged me about my stupid decisions, and there were a lot of them. You would still sit with me, on my bed while I cried about everything from boys to family problems. And I felt like you understood my sadness. I just cannot imagine life without you Dixie! I am sorry for everytime I didn't walk you when I should have, or I ignored you because I was in a bad mood, or I hurt you by stepping on your paw when you walked under my feet, or I yelled at you and made you sad. And I'm sorry for any pain you are in, or have been in by being sick. I just don't know what is best for you, I mean I know, but I don't want to KNOW. I just want you as a happy puppy. And if you will be happy in doggy heavan, then that is what we will have to do for you. And you can see Skippy and say sorry for eating you. =) And thank you for putting up with Bayleigh too. She really does love you even though she can be the biggest BITCH ever to you. She will miss you more then you know. And I only hope she can be half the dog you are, but then again she will never be what you are to me, never ever. I have always thought of you as being invinvible. And although the time is soon coming that you will not be here, you will always be invincible in my heart. I remember the first few days we had you and we took you to the beach and you loved it, and we were gonna call you Sandy, because you loved the beach. But Dixie has always fit you, like the perfect dog name. I remember the time we took you to Lake George and you kept getting the dead fish outta the water and trying to give it to mom. I love how you sit on the couch and act like a cat. And you always pose for pictures. Therefore I have 3000 pictures of you. You touch every persons heart who meets you. You love every person who walks in the room. You are the best dog. End of story. You can never be replaced, there will never be a Dixie the 2nd. You are irreplacable. You are perfect. There is so much more I could say about my dog. But this would go on forever. I will miss you forever and ever when you go. And I know that when my time comes I will see you in heaven, and then I can give you never ending amounts of cheese forever and ever. I love you Dixie and I will keep you in my heart forever and ever. You are the best dog, sweetest most magnificent dog. I am bleesed to have had you as my companion. And you will never know how many people you have made happy with no words, but just barks. =) I love you Dixie Doodle.
