YOU WERE A THROW AWAY BUT GOD KNEW THERE WAS A SPECIAL PLACE FOR YOU IN OUR HOME.IN THE BEGINNING YOU WERE VERY SICK BUT SOON YOU RECOVERED TO BECOME THE "QUEEN".YOU WERE ALWAYS THE FIRST TO RUN TO THE DOOR AND GREET WHOEVER WAS THERE.AND ALWAYS LET US KNOW IF ANYONE WAS WITHIN 10 BLOCKS OF "YOUR YARD".|
YOUR FAVORITE TIME OF DAY WAS MEALTIME AND YOU WERE ALWAYS READY FOR ANY AND ALL HANDOUTS. ESPECIALLY IF WE MADE POPCORN AND THEN YOU WOULD CATCH EVERY ONE IN MID AIR.
WHEN BUDDY ARRIVED A FEW YEARS LATER, YOU SOON HAD HIM FOLLOWING YOU AND COPYING EVERYTHING YOU DID. YOU QUICKLY BECAME BEST FRIENDS AND HAD SUCH FUN TIMES TOGETHER..
EVERY EVENING AFTER DINNER WAS A CIRCUS AS BUDDY DRAGGED YOU AROUND ON THE FLOOR AS YOU WILLING LAY STILL THEN YOU WOULD JUMP UP AND "ATTACK" HIM AND GROWL LIKE YOU WERE GOING TO EAT HIM UP.YOU HAD SO MUCH FUN CHASING EACH OTHER AND RUNNING CIRCLES AROUND THE TABLE.THEN YOU WOULD WASH BUDDY'S EARS AND FINALLY REST BEFORE GOING OUT FOR YOUR EVENING INSPECTION OF THE BACK YARD.IF THERE WERE ANY LIZARDS, FROGS OR ANY OTHER CRITTERS YOU WOULD HAVE LOADS OF FUN CHASING THEM.
AS YOU GOT OLDER YOU SLOWED DOWN AND DIDN'T PLAY AS MUCH OR AS ROUGH BUT YOU ALWAYS LOVED YOUR FOOD AND ESPECILLY SMOOCHING HANDOUTS FROM GENE AT THE TABLE.
AFTER WE FOUND OUT YOU HAD CANCER YOU HAD ALMOST 4 GOOD MONTHS BEFORE YOU STARTED LOOSING GROUND.WHEN THE TIME CAME WHEN YOU WERE NO LONGER HAPPY AND LIFE WAS TO DIFFICULT FOR YOU WE MADE THE HARD DECISION TO LET YOU GO.
THERE IS COMFORT IN KNOWING YOU ARE NOW AT PEACE AND THAT SOMEDAY WE WILL MEET YOU ON RAINBOW BRIDGE.UNTILL THAT TIME YOU ARE ALWAYS AND FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS.OUR FEISTY LITTLE GIRL WHO FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT TO THE VERY END.
Oct 11,2009 Hello sweet girl. I haven't been here to visit for a while but you know you've never been forgotten.I know you found Buddy at the bridge when he arrived and your back to playing like you always did.You two had such a special relationship and he never really got over losing you.I've been very sad lately but It makes me feel better to know you two are together and happy.No more pain, no more suffering.Just play in the meadow till we are together again.
March1,2010 My dear Jasmine, I miss you still and know you and Buddy are together.Xena now rests in your white wicker chair in the front room exactly as you did with her head on the arm, looking down the street for any one coming this way.She also gets out of control over the mailman.Until weare together i will hold you forever in my heart. I love you sweet lille girl.
