Memorials: Newest Ones First
Our beloved funny Dippy cat left us peacefully Sunday evening (Jan 28, 2018). What he loved best was laying in the sun on the deck. Quiet and very good-natured, he will be missed so much. This event comes just one week after our Button, another 20-year-old kitty, passed away on Monday. Special pets will be missed very much.
Maggie was with us since she was 3 months old and she really was my baby. She was always in my lap and always followed me around. She had a very fast passing, she was sick and then passed in only 48 hours. She was a very sweet gentle spirit, but at home, she was very quick to boss Chief (her brother) around and let him know who was the alpha! She had a great life and brought much joy to us for those 11 years! I will never forget my black and white sweetie.
My family and I adopted Chewy & his brother, Blue, back in July of 2014. We aren’t really sure of his birthdate, so we just used a family members birthday as his date of birth. We fell in love with Chewy as soon as we got him. His personality was so cute. He loved to sit in my lap all the time & he would place his chin on my hand when he slept. He used to jump on my bed every night & hit my face with his to paw to let me know he was there. He was a very vocal cat & always made his presence known! When we found out he had high blood pressure & kidney disease, we did everything we could to make him comfortable. Towards the last few days of his life, he was not well. The decision to have him put down was devastating to myself & my family, but it was the best choice. We did not want him to be suffering anymore. My family & I will miss him terribly! RIP Chewy…..you are forever in our hearts!
My Bubba Joe came into my life unexpectedly but welcomed. When I first got him he had a hard time adjusting to his new environment, his new home. But as time passed he quickly and easily became a part of our family. But out of everyone he had the deepest and biggest bond with me. If I went to take a shower when I would open the shower curtain, he would be stretched out on the rug right in front of the tub. If I went to the bathroom he curled up at my feet while I was on the toilet as if he just couldn’t bare for me to leave his side. At times I got aggravated with these behaviors but now I would give my right arm just to have him get in my way. I guess I didn’t realize how blessed I was to have a dog that loved me so much he would’ve followed me into a fire if I would’ve walked into one. I knew something was wrong when these little things that he did stopped and instead of following me he would lift his head and just watch as I wen t wherever I had to go. Bubba Joe is a special dog who loves me unconditionally. I would do anything to have him back. He was one of the greatest things in my life, right up there with my kids. And that’s to say a lot. He was protective over his family all the way up until the end. I guess I thought he would live forever, but unfortunately I was wrong. I refused to accept that he was suffering all the way up until he drew his last breath. That was selfish of me but I just love him so much I didn’t want to lose him. I don’t know why he was taken from me or how I will get through it but if this message reaches one pet owner that sometimes gets aggravated at the fact that their pet most likely has separation anxiety if they display any of these behaviors, it will be worth the time I took to write it. Cherish every moment that you have not just with your pets but with anyone that you share a loving relationship with because you never know when your last moment with them w ill come. I love you Bubba Joe, fly high baby and remember you’re always with Mama.
I had my beautiful Roxy for seven short years. She was never a dog to me, she was my baby girl. She was so smart. She suddenly became ill in November 2015 and I had to let her go to sleep. That was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. I still miss her so very much.
