Dec 23, 1995-June 14, 2009

I had you since the day you were born. I held your tiny body and claimed you as mine. 14 years flew by and you were with me through all my good times and bad times. You were a puppy til the end, still running up the driveway to greet me the day before you finally left. I wish I would have known, so I could have stayed home with you. But Dad assures me that you went peacefully in your sleep and by the looks of it, you did and I'm grateful for that. I knew you weren't feeling good and that you were in pain, so I guess you heard me before I left when I told you it was okay to go now. I'm sorry I got busy with my own human babies the last few years but I figured you understood. Winston misses you a lot, still looking to wake you up when we go outside. Taz misses you too! Tana wanted to give you some medicine and I only wish it were that easy. By the way, Dad liked you alot more than he let on. He was just jeleous of you because I loved you so much and let you get away with murder. I'm glad I got to take you swimming a couple more times this past month. I'm having a hard time with this, everytime I turn around I run into something or some place you were. Your foot prints are still in the garden, you know you weren't suppose to be in there. I don't even want to clean the house because your hair is still on the couch. But time will ease my pain and I will get another pup to love. Although I know that there will never be another that could compare to you, there are a lot of babies out their that need a loving home. You were and are and always will be my best girl ever! Thank you for always being there for me. Thanks for all the walks and kisses. You are such a good friend! I put you in the back yard by the raspberry bushes. We spent a lot of time there and I remember how you liked to suck them off the bush. It's a perfect shady spot that lets peaks of sun shine through. I'm putting a little garden over you and planted some bleeding hearts and other flowers too. I put the rest of your treats with you and your big bone. I'll always have a good stick for you on top of the garden. You're close to Baron and Pumpkin so you're not out there by yourself. I will come to visit you everyday if you're ever around. So relax and have fun now at the Bridge until I pick you up. I'll always love you and miss you. Until then............

Your Mamma
