Candy, Puppy, Baby girl,Baby bear, Puppiness, all these names you had and each one you answered to without fail. The day we were so lucky to rescue you will be forever in all our memories. You were such a tiny little girl who fitted in your Mum's handbag and you didn't want to leave it. |
"She can't lie on the bed" Mum said that night and she left you in the kitchen. After 2 minutes hearing your little puppy cry she told me to go and get you, you were so tiny you had to be lifted on and off the bed and you cuddled in between us both licking our faces, the day you made it up yourself we cheered.
You were our first baby and arrived before all three of our children, and when they did you loved every one of them, sniffing them in their prams and kissing their foreheads, and playing with them, always so very gently.
You loved to play all the time and run through the daffodils in the spring, back and forth time and time again. You were so small we just seen the ripple going through them but not you, you tiny little bundle of fun. You loved the summertime lying outside on the grass getting all the attention from the children in the street. You enjoyed the attention of everyone but I think especially the children when you lay down having your belly tickled and rubbed. In the winter you had lots of fun when it snowed, you quickly got the hang of eating snow! Your best friend Aunty Mary you loved in a way I can't comprehend. She must have had a spell over you as you adored her over pretty much anyone else except your Mum and me and got so excited and vocal every day she came round, watching you I would have given anything to know what your little noises meant. I hope you are both together over Rainbow Bridge, I'm sure that would make us all and you really happy.
When you got cancer at only 8 years old we were devastated at the thought of losing you and no amount of money was going to be too much to get you the care that you needed. Thankfully you got back on top and healthy again and back to the little girl we knew and loved so much.
In all our pictures of everyone you were there, you were so beautiful and your coat shone pure black on your back with your tan and white legs you really were a perfect little girl. I sit just now and see your picture, you are lying in front of the fire on your rug and find it so hard to know I can't cuddle you anymore.
On the day we lost you I'm so glad we were all here for you and you were not alone, we held you tight and cuddled you as we said goodbye to the most pure heart adorable little girl.
1 year on we still miss you terribly, but we know you have no pain anymore and you are free to roam over Rainbow Bridge until we come to meet you again.
