In March of 2008, I drove to Brooklyn to pick up my Addie girl. My life was changed once again. She was the last puppy to be picked up and had separation anxiety from her initial family and cried the entire drive to her new home. She was a devil dog from the minute she arrived. She chased deer, spit freshly mowed grass at me and loved to play games. Her personality was tremendous and always sweet. She would act insulted if anyone walked by without stopping to acknowledge her. We soon moved to Florida and I bought a grooming truck. She loved to come with me every day on the truck and pretend that she was in charge. Addie knew that I lived in her world. In 2013, she survived a 10 month illness and I promised her that I would do everything to get her well. As long as we had each other, we were both content. She knew that I would take care of her until the end. We moved several times, across 5 states. There was no better companion. As she started to age, the pain of seeing her deteriorate killed me. For so many years, I was able to share my life with her knowing fully well that she understood. I could always count on her to lick away my tears or kiss me when I was most vulnerable. This last year, she lost her vision and her personality changed. She became scared to walk and circled around. Recently, I was faced with the hardest and worst decision of my life when I was told that she most likely had a lesion on her brain. She was with me for 15 years. I know that endings are never good, but this was like someone put a dagger through my heart. I will never stop loving my Addie Girl and I hope that she is with my Sammie Girl over the Rainbows Bridge. Run, Addie Run! I pray that I can see you again and love on you again.|
I am heartbroken but if love could save you, you'd still be here with me.
