How do we even begin to say goodbye? Mommy and Daddy love and miss you so very much. You gave us so much joy, laughter, companionship and unconditional love for the 11 years that we were blessed to have you. I still look for you at the door (with a toy hanging out of your mouth) every time that I pull in the driveway from work. I still hesitate a moment at night coming around the corner going into the bedroom making sure I don't step on you in the dark. You were the sweetest, smartest, most loving dog I have ever met and we won the lottery when you chose us to be your forever parents.
You left us with so many memories of all of the fun times we shared: camping, playing in the yard, snuggling in bed at night (with you hogging up most of the bed), Sunday morning cuddles, getting you scrambled eggs and watching you gobble them down in seconds, you being afraid of the vacuum cleaner, police sirens, dispatch noises and thunderstorms, you holding us hostage at the top of the kitchen stairs glancing over at your treats, me and all the crazy nicknames I've given you over the years, you hiding when the groomer showed up but doing your "pretty girl prance" once you were all done. You were so patient all those times Missy dressed you up and took pictures of you in all of those silly outfits. Now, I am so grateful to have those pictures; even though they make me cry my eyes out every time I see them.
If we only had one more day or one more hour with you, you would get so many hugs and kisses and "butt rubbies". I pray that you knew in the end how much Mommy, Daddy, Missy and Julianna loved you. Baby Julianna looked for you for days after you were gone. Missy was so upset that she hadn't payed as much attention to you after she got pregnant and had Julianna; but we told her that you knew that she still loved you.
I hope by now that you have found your brother, Scrappy. The two of you will have a lot of fun together and can share stories of how much you both were loved and will always be in our hearts.
We love and miss you so much baby girl! You can never be replaced in our hearts and we will never stop missing you!
