Mindy loved to lay outside in the yard on nice days and just bask in the sun. She would always bark when she would hear the garage door open, she always put the other dogs in line when needed, she loved chasing sandy the chihuahua, but most importantly she will never be forgotten and will always be in our hearts. Mindy loved hunting any kind of animal she could find, and she was good at it too. She was actually a pretty good mouse hunter as well. She loved swimming she was such a water dog, it was hard to get her out once she got in. She loved chasing squirrels and playing with her squeaky toys and killing the squeaker inside. She was a true blue dog. I always called her mother hen, because she was very protective of my son. Anytime he would cry she was right there to see what was wrong. She was taken too soon I think, but she lived a good long life. My heart breaks not to be able to see her or pet her. She will be greatly and deeply missed. I love you Boo.|
3-23-09-It has now been 4 days since you have left, and I still hurt more and more each day. I am wondering if you will give me a sign that you have reached that bridge and you are OK. It is very hard to get up in the morning and do the daily routine without you in it. Knowing you are not in pain eases my mind though. I love you very much and always will, you will always be in my heart Boo. I miss you, mommy.
3-24-09- Hi Boo Boo, I feel a little better today, only because last night I spoke with Dr. Phipps who had started doing surgery on you, and she said that you had a very bad bacterial infection everywhere. She said me and daddy made the right decision and after she told me that, I felt better, because I didnt think we did. Sassy and Pharoah miss you too, I know. They keep barking and barking. I know if you were here you would be putting them in line as usual. I love you baby girl and I miss you dearly. I am glad you are in a better place now. I hope you make many friends which I know you will- Love Always, mommy.
3-26-09 Good Morning, Boo girl, it has been one week today since you have been gone. I just want you to know I am sorry I was not there with you, I thought you would be coming back home to us. I miss you so much it still hurts so much. It just isnt the same without you here, but I know you are here in spirit with us. In a couple of weeks I am going to plant a garden with tulips and some other flowers for you in the back corner of the yard where you use to wander to, I cant wait. I hope you will like it. I love you Boo, and I miss you so very much.
3-29-09 Hi Girly, I miss you so much, it is so weird with you not here. It is snowing here today, and very cold. I know if you were here you would be out in the snow rolling in it and sticking your face in it like you always did, that always made me laugh. I think Sassy really misses you, she just mopes all day. I hope you are doing OK now, I really really miss you though, and this is gonna be hard to get used to. I love you sweetie, talk to you soon!
4-2-09 April already Boo girl. It has been 2 weeks since you left us but it seems like an eternity. I try not to cry but I cant help it. I try to think of all the good times and funny things you used to do. We caught some mice the other day and that reminded me of you when you would go out in the garage and just sit and wait for the mice. We are giving Sandy to grandma and grandpa. This month is your 11th birthday and since we do not know the exact day I am going to celebrate it all month. I hope you are doing well. Hugs and Kisses, Boo. I love you girl.. Happy Birthday!
4-9-09 Hi Boo Boo, it is still lonely here without you, today we are going to grandma and grandpas down south for Easter.

I got your memorial stone the other day and when it gets nicer out I am going to pick a place in the yard and plant some flowers and put your stone there. I hope you will like it. Well I must go sweetie, but I miss you lots and love you always!
