Welcome to Dama's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Dama
Dama was so sweet and gentle, scared of a grocery sack when I first rescued her. She loved to lay out in the yard and sun but would soon want inside to be wherever I was. She was such a cuddle bug, and would whine and whine at night till I let her in the bed with me and she would give me kisses every night at bedtime. After lots and lots of encouragement from her brother she discovered how to play with toys, at first it was me who was doing all the fetching lol. Oh she loved her squeaky stuffed friends and eventually became so attached to her pink porcupine she had to sleep with it. Here eyes were so big and she was just like a child on Christmas morning each month when the Bark Box would arrive. One time my father was bringing in the mail for me and she got so excited at the sight of the box she knocked him over lol. She was under the impression that she was a small lap dog like her brother and would try so hard to sit in peoples lap never realizing just how much bigger she was that her brother. She was a sweet sister and friend, she always did as her brother told her to. Our friend Onyx, a min-pin, was only a few months old when he first came to play. He would bite her lip and tug on her ears and dive bomb off the couch right on top of her and she was so careful not to hurt him, they would play for hours and had so much fun. April of 2016 I noticed her having a slight limp and took her in to be check out. It was cancer in her bone. She was given a month or two to live. By August she was still walking on her leg and after more tests it was discovered the tumor was not growing, thought to be non-malignant. We had her leg removed and she started to recover and even started to play and roam the yard again. She was happy and playing everyday and was thought to make a full recovery. It was two month after the surgery and her incision started to open up again. After it started bleeding continuously repair surgery was scheduled. At first we thought she had just over done and tore the hundreds of stitches in her muscles. During surgery the doctor called me, it was the cancer back again in her chest. I went say goodbye and she went to heaven that day. Our time together was short but I thank God for everyday with my baby girl.
