My dearest Schmooze,|
Fifteen years, seven months and 18 days was not enough time. You're no longer in pain. It's time for you to run and play with Aunt Stinky, Cousin Heidi, Samantha, Abigail and Zaner. I will never forget your love of W's, Snausages, flicking peas for you to chase down and eat, your sneezing on command and all of the other wonderful memories of you. I can't wait until the day we are together again. You will be missed by all including Great-Grandma, Grandma, Grandpa, Unca Megui, Unca S, Dexter Bob (the love of your life), Aunt Lisa and many more. I'll be back in 15 minutes!
2/29/2008 I can't believe it's already been a week since you left me. I cry for you every day. I know that you are safe with your Great-Grandma and Great-Great Grandma. Dexter Bob is very depressed. He misses you so much! Tomorrow night Grandpa, Grandma, Unca Megui and I will be going out to dinner in your honor. I will bring home some steak and send it to you up in Heaven. I miss your kissy snoots! I love you! Mama

I can't believe it's been a month already. I miss you very much! Dexter is getting ready for the Bunny to come tonight. He knows it's not going to be the same without you. Thank you for giving me the sign to get another dog. You picked out a very cute puppy for me. I will name her Penelope and will pick her up in a little over a week. I will tell her all about you. I hope you get lots of snucks for Easter up there. Mama loves you and you will always be the love of Dexter Bob's life!

Hi Baby Schmooze,
I just wanted to let you know that everything is going well with Penelope. She starts puppy kindergarten on Wednesday. I wish you could be here with her in person, but I know you are in spirit. I miss you everyday! Mama

Happy 16th birthday Schmooze!
I wish you were here with me to celebrate. I'm going to miss not going to PetSmart with you to pick out a toy for your birthday. We will have a birthday cake in your honor though. Great-Grandma is coming down for the weekend and we'll all be thinking of you. I hope you're having a great birthday up in Heaven. I tell Penelope about you everyday. Thank you for sending her to me. I love you and miss you every day!

I can't believe it's been a year already. Where does the time go? Mama misses you so much! I know you are in a better place and that it is one year less that I have to wait to see you again. Penelope has fit in very nicely thank you. We're going to visit great-grandma today in your honor. Penelope demands to sit in my lap driving like you always did. Mama loves you so much and misses you terribly. I think of you everyday. I know you are in a better place and are not in any more pain. You are the bestest Shih Tzu Poodle anybody could ever ask for. PS Did you know that Domino is a Shih Tzu Poodle?

Happy 17th birthday Schmooze! I know they're having a party for you in Heaven. Lots and lots of Snausages. This is your second birthday in Heaven. I miss you so much every day. I know you're in a better place though. I took Penelope in for her checkup to see Dr. Noone on Wednesday. She is a good girl just like you always were. I am going to make you a cake and we are going to celebrate down here. Mama loves you and misses you every day! I almost forgot...Great-Grandma sent you a birthday card and cousin Sara got married a couple of weeks ago.

I can't believe it's been 2 years already. I still miss you so much! I talk to Penelope about you all of the time. She knows that you sent her to me. She was looking up at your picture the other day as if she knew. Dexter is doing well although he misses you too. I know you are having lots of fun up there playing with all of your friends. Aspen is with you now too. I think of you everyday, baby! Mama loves you!

It's been 3 years today. I can't believe it's been that long already. Dexter Bob and Penelope are doing fine. I am babysitting for another little Shih Tzu named Toby Lee right now. He is a very good boy. I hope you are having fun running around and playing with Gabrielle and Samantha. Say "hi" to your newest friends up there...your cousin Kasey Lee and cousin Oreo. Be a good girl. I'll be back in 15 minutes. Mama loves you!

You have new friends in Heaven with you now...Dontae who went over the Rainbow Bridge 2 months ago today and Riley Bob who came over almost a month ago. I hope you're having fun playing with them. I talk to Penelope about you all the time. I'm going to go call your Great-Grandma now to remind her that this is your day. You be a good girl up there Porky Schnitzel. Mama loves you and can't wait to see you again! Kissy snoots!
