Itty Dog has Passed Away

October 24th, 2011 at 08:43 am

A small white dog died yesterday at age 21
She had a long and active life
Originally an orphan, she and her sister were adopted.
The Alpha of her pack until her health failed, she was a fair and caring leader
She loved children and learned to play Hide N Go Seek with them. Children we didnít know would come to the house and ask to play.
Halloween was her favorite holiday because she was convinced the children were visiting to see her
Christmas was also special, especially when we decorated with candy canes, which all mysteriously disappeared, while she tended to have minty fresh breath
Her very favorite thing besides mealtimes, was to sit on her humanís lap and have her head stroked.
She hated baths and having her nails trimmed, and would often limp pathetically for hours and then change sides.
Loved by all except cats, she was my dearest friend for 19 years.
She died quietly surrounded by kind hands and love.
