Alice had a seizure on Thursday, June 20, from which she did not recover. Alice was a quiet and loyal soul. She loved ....her sisters, her cookies, her treats, her kongs, the occasional cheerio....but mostly she loved to lay right next to you...covered up in your blanket was even better. She loved to fling her cookies and roll her whole body on her kongs. She never greeted you without bringing you something. If she wanted something, you knew it. She'd sit straight up and shake her arms at you. If that didn't do it, then she'd use her most high pitched bark to make you get up and get her the cookie she wanted. She loved to howl if you singed really loud and really high. She loved to chase your pajama pant legs and would stand in front of you just waiting and wagging as you got undressed from work. She answered to her many names....Alice, Yallers Magee, Skip, Skipper Johnson, Taco...|
We had her 14 years and two months. We loved her every day. When Alice was nine, she suffered from a ruptured cordae and went into heart failure. No one knew how long she would make it. I'm happy it happened because I spent the next five years quietly thanking her for getting better and getting to be with her. I didn't take her for granted. I knew just how lucky I was to be with her every day. When she left, I thanked her. I thanked her for her friendship. I thanked her for getting better. I thanked her for five years no doctor thought we'd get. And I thanked her for not letting me see her suffer. I thanked her for all the love she gave in the many ways she gave it. She was my soul mate. I will miss her every day.
