Bye Bye Baby


Jan 1996 - April 2010

Bye my girl - you really had a good run and 14 years of dedication to our family is worth mentioning and being thankful for.

I remember when I first adopted you - I couldn't decide on a name, so I called you my 'baby'. This name just stuck and that is how you will remain in my heart - my first baby.

This weekend I will go buy you a tree my girl, and your collar will have it's place on the branch. There is a spot right outside the front door, that I pass every day, that is perfect for your tree. And I have a tree in mind - it's fast growing and strong (like you were), it has light bright green leaves (like your spirit) and the most prolific little purple flowers (for my girl). It is simply a beautiful tree.

I will miss you and I am sorry that you are gone.

One day, my girl, we will meet again and I look forward to seeing the spring in your step and many wet kisses.

Mwah!

Baby will always remain alive whenever I choose to visit her in my mind...
I see her excited greeting - wagging her entire body and not just her tail;
I feel her nibbling my hand asking to be caressed, and then sighing with absolute pleasure;
And then her regal strutting, nose in the air, as she grumbles her opinion.
A big heart with enormous courage in a small package.
