    Default A Sad week here..

    Monday I said goodbye to "Tommie". She was 14 and a half. A good long full life, but as we all know, its never long enough......

    Tommie was born on the same day as her mom "Blllie", only 4 years later.
    Given several nicknames over the years,but my favorite was "Perfect Tommie", given by a friend who ran tests with us. She got that name when she took this miraculous long over through the tules to the bird at her first MH ribbon test. She flew thru Junior, Senior and got three master legs before she got sick with Addisons Disease and was retired. That was at age 4. I got one wonderful litter from her by FC/AFC Kensbridge Darkly Handsome.( before she was sick of course). Prettiest litter I've ever had, to then and to date.
    Tommie greeted everyone at the gate the last few years . Like all of them, she made me so happy and sometimes so mad! Just less than two weeks ago, she ventured down to the creek (steep bank-she hasnt offered to do that trip down in years!) by herself and made my heart jump when I didnt know where she was. Luckily she met me at the base of the easy path so she could come back up.
    Thanks Tommie girl, for all the memories . Two litters of babies on the way,here. They are Great Great grandbabies and the next is gGeat grandbabies. All will have some of you in them Tommie . So we wont be that far from each other.....
    Not the same without your old bark and , the couch misses you rubbing and rolling on it..... Sleep well 'Burr"....

    She sounds like a wonderful girl who had a home where she was loved - what dog could ask for more. She was loved, never to be forgotten.
