My Little Sis
When she came into our lives June 24 1998 she fit into the palm of my hand. Her face won our hearts. She is a multipoo. she walked under my poodle the night we came home she was so small. We Loved her the moment we saw her.
When Sis was about 4years old she came up with a rare blood disease ITP. we were devastated, we had a son with the same disease and knew what was ahead of her. She spent 10 to 14 days at the All Care facility in Fountain Valley CA, at the end of her stay she pulled through, she was on meds for about 4year in hope it would go into remission and it did. She was taken off her meds, but always had issues.
Sis Loved to travel, loved her cookies (carotts), loved to beg, loved scrambled eggs,and always tried to tell us what to do. She would tell us when she wanted to eat by licking her mouth and if her water bowl was empty or if she wanted a fresh bowl, she would let us know by barking. Sis was a very smart little girl. She would talk to me by lightly barking, & after our conversation she would usually lay down and go to sleep.
She loved her cheerios every night before her bed time, her last snack for the day. (every night)
She brought soooooo much love, joy, happiness, and so many more things in our lives.
The last year or two of her life she started to go down hill, she did not want anyone to bother her, she did not want her faced washed, she did not want her bath (she would hide) she did not like to be groomed, she would rather roll in dirt then be fussed over. She wanted to be left alone. We did the best we could with her and when she did get her bath she would sleep so much better.
The last year was rough on my Husband and my self, we tried to keep her comfortable the best way we could, we wanted to do more for her but she would fight us.
About 3 weeks ago we took her to the vet for a complete check up following up on her blood work just to make sure her ITP did not return. Her blood was fine, but the vet found an enlarged heart and shallow breathing. he treated her and send us home with meds for her, she did real good the first few days but then started having a harder time with her breathing, with in 1 week she got where she was gasping for air and then we knew it was time. what a hard decision it was. She was laid to rest November 2nd 2009.
We are now second guessing ourselves if we did the right thing. we as humans are selfish for our own selves and sometimes don't think what is best for them. In our hearts we know we did the right thing for Sis, it is just so very hard to let her go.She was so very special to us pulling through her illness and all we went through with her, very special.She was a fighter up to the very end.
I know she is at the rainbow bridge frolicking with all the other doggies and is pain free and disease free.
I thank God for all the good times, memories,and joy she gave us.
Sis you will truly truly be missed by everyone you touched in your life.I love you LOVE BUG and will see you in heaven when mom gets there until then my little girl have fun at the rainbow bridge. LOVE YOU
