On April 13, 1995, the phone rang and on the other end was Jenn and Lisa asking if they could bring a puppy home. I told them, call your Dad and, of course, Dad said ask Mom, so home you came.|
What a cutie; everyone fell in love with you. You were quite a handful, but what a handsome charmer you became. There were so many things we remember you did, but a few special ones were - puppy classes at Happy Trails to put on manners (Ha! Ha!); the night you stole Dad's supper (chicken wings) off the kitchen counter and ate everything. Then, of course, we were worried sick about the bones. Then along came eating carrots from Uncle Dennis's mouth. And then there was stealing Kathy's ponytail tie out of her hair when she came to visit. (Real mannerly weren't you). Then there were the times you chewed an ink pen under the dining room table and chewing the dry wall in the family room trying to get into the garage, just so you could be with Jenn and her friends.
You finally became a sort of mannerly dog after your obedience classes with Hank and his stern voice. You were a special boy, going everywhere in the car and the Nuggett taxi (Dad's truck) . You loved to go to Nescopeck to see Waylon and to Jenn & Keith's in Pottstown. Everywhere our truck or car went you just had to go. You could just be in the car with us for hours upon hours and just waiting patiently, oh so patiently, for whatever we needed to do.
Nuggett, our special Boy, we were so proud of you. Aunt Mamie wasn't too fond of dogs, that is until she got to know YOU and realized how special you were. She loved you and she began to realize how special animals could be, all because of you. You taught her that. Then she and Uncle Dennis adopted Buddy who became your neighborhood and family friend.
Everyone who ever met you thought you were special because you showed such love and affection to all.
EVERYONE MISSES YOU; all of our grandkids look for you. Nicky, Mikey and Brook were here and Nicholas said "Where's Nuggett"?) When Dixie and Buddy come over, they sniff all over for you. Everyone in our family really misses you. Dad and I miss you every minute of the day. We talk to you and hope you can tell how much you are missed. Dad really misses you a whole lot as you and he spent almost every waking hour together. What an inspiration you were to Dad after his surgery while he was recuperating. You were such a blessing.
We were sorry we couldn't have been with you in your final hours but we never thought you would leave us so suddenly. We tried to get to the veterinarian hospital as soon as we could, we just didn't make it in time. We hope you didn't suffer too long. But we know you made your own decision that it was time. We know that you not in any pain now and don't have to be afraid of thunderstorms anymore.
We picture you running and playing with all your other furbaby friends and know you are watching over all of us as our guardian angel.
Don't forget Sunday and Wednesday - ice cream night.
LOVE AND MISS YOU
MOM, DAD, JENN & FAMILY
