Came into my life in August 1995. There was a free ad in the paper. Jamie & I went to see 2 frolicky lil puppies, fat bellied full of life. Mama was a black cocker spaniel, Daddy was a wandering red smooth dachshund. There were 2 babies 1 male 1 female. I wanted both but alas Jamie said only 1. We chose the female. I instantly named her Stinker, knew she would be spoiled the second I held her.
Stinker suffered through da brat and da boy, she was surrogate mother to more than one litter of.. kittens! Yes, she'd steal the kittens when Mama cat would leave!
She grumbled but accepted da herd as they one by one came into her kingdom.
I held her as Doc slipped a needle into the iv in her front leg. The pink fluid slowly found its way into her veins and her breathing slowed bit by bit.
and then she was gone.
I held her and hugged her and stroked her hair and told her to run free and be happy at the bridge. Miss Jamie took her from my arms and took her in the back where they cut a small piece of her hair off and wrapped a pink dotted bow around it.
You were the Queen of our single wide trailer. I love you.

Mama, I am so very sorry. Thank doG it's naptime and the kids can't see me sitting here crying.
Run free, Stinker. Look for my prickly little ear warmer~he'll keep you company.:imsorry: :sad1: I'll be lighting a :candle3: to help her on her way.

I am so sorry, Mama.
She was incredibly well loved, as are all the herd members.

I am so, so sorry. I am sure she was comforted by you being there and loving on her, Mama. That was brave, and loving, and wonderful. She was loved way too much to cross alone. Thank you for not letting her hurt.

My heart breaks for you. Love you.

I am so sorry Sandi. I know she is grateful she got to spend all those years knowing so much love from you and P.J.

RIP Sweet Stinker.

I couldn't be there. I'm a terrible person I don't deny. I suck, I truly do. I'm selfish and wanted to deny the inevitable. To deny the pain that I knew was coming. My heart is broken. I know I did not do right by that dog and will forever regret that. I'm glad I'm glad I got to say good-bye. Am sad I didn't do it the right way... I just hope she knows that I did truly love her more than I could ever say and more than I ever showed.

RIP fat girl. I'll love you always....

Oh Sandi, I'm sitting in a hotel lobby using the computer with tears running down my face...I know how you feel, believe me, I know. Godspeed, little mama's girl Stinker. Alex and Michele will be waiting for you. :candle2: and tons of :hug99: :hug99: :hug99: for your and PJ's and Amanda's hearts. (And Amanda, you do NOT suck...she knew you loved her.)

10-21-2008, 08:35 PM
OMdoG!!! I am so very sorry Mama. She knew you, PJ and Amanda loved her very dearly. Run free at the bridge little Stinker. Going to light a :candle: for her right now. (very hard to type thru tears):sosad: Stinker, Go find Grrrt and have her take you to Sonic.

10-21-2008, 08:42 PM
I am so very sorry for your loss of your little Stinker girl.

It was her time, you knew that :hearts:
I'm glad you could be there for her to help her to the bridge. :hearts:
Run free Stinker :candle: I hear the Sonic up there makes real nice cheese sticks.

Stinker knew you loved her. You are not a terrible person for not being there. My father could not take our family dog to the vet to help him to the bridge. Dad would make the appointments ( 4 in total)and then cancel them.
Chuck was a Mutt and 18 yrs old, blind in one eye, could barely walk, had a horrible cough, needed help to eat and drink water. My Dad begged me to take him. I made the app. didn't tell my Dad. I took Chuck in, held him and told him that we loved him and it was his time.
He died in my arms, the injection was not needed.
My Dad knew as soon as he walked in the door,that Chuck was gone.
It is a hard thing for anyone to do.

Sending :bighug: :bighug: to you Mama, Amanda & PJ

:candle3: for Stinker.

:hug99: for you and Amanda.

10-21-2008, 09:38 PM
I am so sorry Sandi and Amanda. Your beautiful girl knows you both loved her very, very much. And she is not at the Bridge thinking you should have been there. She is just thinking how much she loves both of you and wishing you were not sad.

:candle: for Stinker

10-21-2008, 09:54 PM
I am so sorry to hear of this. Stinker was such a pretty girl. :hug99: :hug99: :hug99:

10-21-2008, 09:54 PM
Amanda, you do NOT suck. You gave Stinker her dying wish, to get to see you one last time. You don't have to be there physically to be there for them. Stinker is in your heart, as well as your mom's. You loved her, that was all she wanted from you.

10-21-2008, 11:12 PM
I am so sorry for your loss. Big hug to you Sandy and Amanda
