Ponci was my baby! She traveled the USA with me and protected me always. I wish I could have saved her. She was in chronic renal failure when I made the decision to end her suffering on November 5, 2008 at 06:14 am. She would have been 10 years old on January 1, 2009. She was and continues to be my life. I have lost loved ones before, but the pain I feel from her loss is greater than any pain I ever thought possible. She is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. As she passed, I gave her my heart to hold on to until I could stop at The Rainbow Bridge and we will enter the Gates of Heaven together. Never again to be seperated. I love and miss you more than life Ponci Leaux! I only wish that our meeting comes very soon!! That we can be together again forever. This pain I feel is to great to bear. I have no heart, you carry it as you play and romp in the fields with all other furry children waiting for their parents to walk with them through Heavens gate. I know my heart is safe with you, as yours is with me. I love you now and always more than anyone that will ever be in my life! Please, Ponci, wait for me! I won't be long.|
I had always wanted a dog that I could spoil and would go everywhere with me. Then I found Ponci. She was about 5 weeks old when we fell for each other and knew we would be together, forever. She was in a box, in the back of a truck, with all her other brothers and sisters. Above their leittle heads and wagging tails was a sign....FREE PUPPIES!! So, this was my chance to get that little baby I always had wanted. Ponci was bouncing around, jumping over her siblings, tail wagging, running around wanting to know everything and anyone that happened to stop. Her siblings were all snuggled together. It looked as though Ponci had tired them out with her enthusiasm and adventurous nature. Then our eyes met, she immediately ran to me, tail wagging and tongue hanging out. I put her in the truck. Her love of life and unending desire to discover everything clutched my heart. I had to name her after a discoverer with the same love of life............Ponc deLeon....The Fountain of Youth....and until she took her last breath, Ponci's love of life remains.....I miss you so much Ponci....
