November 24, 2015- The kids said "Mom can we have a dog? This one has no hair, so we won't have allergies." I said sure, but we have to save up some money. The kids saved up all their coins and when we had enough we drove to Pennsylvania to pick you up. It was such a happy day. You sat in the back with Cameron and Gabby, got car sick and threw up! Finally you fell asleep. We were so happy to have you home with us. We decided to call you Augie ( after the cartoon Auggie Doggie) because mom always loved cartoons. You were such a unique looking dog. In the winter you were pure black and in the summer your skin turned light black and pink. People would stop us all the time. |
Then the fun began!! You were a puppy on a mission, tearing up all our rugs, peeing and pooping everywhere and refusing to sleep alone. But after some hard work you saw things differently (except for the sleeping alone thing). I remember how you would let people into our house but never let them leave- barking and growling! You also had a list of people you liked and a list of people you did not like- again barking and growling. This behavior made mom very nervous. Too bad only some people got to see how loving you really were. I also remember that your favorite game was tug of war. We all loved playing with you even though you sometimes cheated.
At 9 years old you were diagnosed with diabetes and eventually lost your vision. For 4 1/2 years you and I fought this disease. You were a trooper through it all! On November 23rd at 7:35 pm, you lost your fight and went to the rainbow bridge. Before you left, you gave me kisses. I will never forget those kisses nor will I ever forget you. You are forever in my heart. We love you so much Augie!!
December 1, 2015- Augie its been 1 week and I miss you so much. It has been a very difficult week. I didn't know what to do with myself. Im out of our routine. I miss taking care of you! But I know you must be feeling better, eating better and no more shots!! I hope you are happy. I love you my big boy!!
April 1, 2016- Hi my boy!! I hope you are happy seeing everything so clearly again. There is never a day that goes by that I don't think about you. I miss you with all my heart and soul. Thank you for being my first dog and for all you did, and continue to do for me. I love you so very much.🐾🐾
