Remembering Mandy


Mandy

November 3, 1999 -September 2, 2011

It's been three years now....so hard to believe our girl isn't here any more....Kalee has filled my heart but there will always be that one spot she won't be able to fill.  It's saved for Mandy and no dog will ever fill it. 

I think of my  Mandy almost daily....we adopted her on March 24, 2001 and she was my best friend...and my companion 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  I  still  miss her so much.  I'm sure she and Kalee would get along...ok, maybe she would teach Kalee a thing or two....or Mandy would just tolerate Kalee!!  Knowing her, she'd be up on Bob's lap hoping we wouldn't make her walk twice a day!  Mandy didn't like to walk!!  She would much rather lay on the couch....but I'd let her do that in a minute!!  I miss her and cry for her often.......

I understand exactly how you feel. I am 63 (almost) and have always had dogs. Twice I have had dog friends that have claimed me. Dino and then Jack picked me and I miss them both each and every day. I miss that mutual devotion and feel lucky that I have had it twice.
xx, Carol

So sorry for your loss Robbie, she was a very gorgeous little dog. Coco is now 17 and regularly tests how much we love her (last night she peed on the kitchen floor and as her muscles aren't quite as strong as they used to be slid all through it before belly flopping in aforementioned puddle of pee. It was quite spectacular). You can imagine how great that is with Bichon fluff :) All that said I love her so very, very much and can't imagine what it's going to be like to not have her around. Is your new dog a Bichon too?

Hugs for you Robbie Dear. Our hearts are stolen when we have such a beloved part of our family leave before us. Mandy will forever be your special love. Blessings my friend...
