Sweet girl, mommy is really sad that for some reason all the years of what I have written to you since 2005 have gone away on your page. I will write your story again as you are the Beginning of this journey. Our first rescue baby!! The reason we have had so many orphans yet so much love and the reason that 8 of the 10 are here at the bridge, you began it all and we are so very grateful..I will write your story as I can once again. But until then Merry Christmas for the 14th year in Heaven, mommy has left your things..I love you Princess P always and forever.|
Well, I have decided to begin to write your story again, a little at a time. Today I write about how you came to us. Little Black Pup aka Lucky Girl, which is with you now and a skinny little hound looking girl would venture to our property at least once a day. At that time we had no fence so you just came right in. Then you would just disappear, you would start coming and eventually make your way into the house. You loved to lay on the fireplace, you loved to be warm. Then when we couldn't find out where you came from we decided to vet you and you became ours. You were the neighborhood dog , I would later find out, until you became a Jarvis dog.
You were about two the vet said and looked to have boxer in you. So we decided to name you Princess. And thus this story of how we became parents to our pack of orphans over the years begins with a skinny little hound pup named Princess.....
as I continue on with your story, today I will talk about how you received the birthday of Jan. 4, so we had no idea when your birthday was so as you came around my birthday we decided to share that with you so my sweet girl every year as I celebrate my birthday I can't help but think of you a skinny little ole' hound dog who started it all and will forever be etched inside my heart.....
..continuing your story so little skinny hound dog it has almost been 15 years and you are still the sweet beginning of it all. So to continue on with your story, sadly we would only have two years with you and on December 24th 2005 your life ended. We spent 15,000.00 to fence our property in so you babies would be safe from the outside world. But your free spirit would in the end take your life. Lucky Girl was your accomplice in all your crimes LOL but she didn't (only because she couldn't ) follow you that morning and I truly believe it saved her life that she didn't. You would go to the corner of the fence and somehow climb over a 5 foot fence. That morning you ate breakfast with the others and somehow climbed over. When dinner time came you weren't here to get in then at dark we became very worried. We got a call at 8:30 on Christmas Eve from a neighbor saying they had found you on the highway and that they had your collar. I was like what?? The interstate was so far away I still to this day don't think you died there, I think the man hit you on our road and felt bad and called us. So John was so upset he called the man and said where is she I want her home. He had pushed you over the edge of the road. Well , daddy made him take him to the area and in the snow and cold he climbed on his hands and knees down a revenue to hunt for you and found you, he would edge you up then crawl up behind you little by little until he made it to the top. He brought you home and we put you in the garage. The others came out and it was breath taking to see them one by one file by you gently stopping to look at you.. We buried you in the cold daddy dug your grave in the ice and snow and you are there out back so I get to see you everyday through my kitchen window. You are the only one buried the rest are cremated and in the cabinet here beside me. You will forever stay behind the gates outback right where it all began when you would come up through the woods to make your way into our heart. I love you sweet girl and 15 years later I still see your sweet face warming by the fireplace.
