Sassy by Wrote for Mallori Parker / We love you, Sassy

When I first saw you I was glad you were her dog cause I thought you looked ugly you had over large bug eyes. but time flew by and you grew into them. You were the runt of the litter and was small for your breed. You had a glossy black and white coat with a beautiful face. It was hard not to love you. I still remember the time I bent over to pet you and you bit me on the nose! Then there was that time you came down to my house and got your self in a mess of trouble
when my dog bit you on the eye!

We couldn’t open the door with out making sure you weren’t any where near, or you be out that door faster then we could blink.
It makes me laugh to think of that time we kept you a night for your owners who are my dear friends. That morning when I went to feed you you jumped out of the kennel and into my dad’s bed and you wasted no time licking him on the face which woke him up. You then went on to wake up the rest of my family one by one. You and me were on every everybody’s bad side that day! Time went by you glossy black coat soon began to have gray hairs and you slowed down some. Then one night you had trouble breathing. That night we called the vet. They told us if you didn’t get worst we could wait till morning to bring you in. I told the others I would stay up with you and let them got to sleep.

The room was dimly lit. I sat on the sofa gazing at you while you stood in the floor struggling for air. Thoughts raced threw my mind was this the end for you? I took some meat from the fridge and gave small bites to you which you swallowed gratefully. As morning approached you worsened. So me Mallori and my dad rushed you to the vet. In the car your mouth turned gray a sigh of lack of air. You went limp. We rushed you in. They lady ushered us into the back Dr.- listened to your heart. You suddenly collapsed. She gently but quickly picked you up saying. “You may loose her,” she took her into the ER room. we waited what seem for ever but was really only a few minutes then sorrowfully Dr.- stepped in saying “I’m sorry but we lost her……”


Whiney by Bethany / Love,

Gunny, Scrappy and Bethany

The night of January 26, 2004. Midnight. I wrapped my arms around her. Gently I kissed her “I love you Whiney,” I whispered. Whiney had heartsworms she had them for many years. But now they were killing her and there was little we could do. She was bloating her heart was failing. Her once glistering eyes were dull.

Her once highly held head was low. Her breathing was gurgley. As if water were in her lungs. She couldn’t lay or sit. It only made it harder for her to breath. She painfully stood there in the dim light head low eyes half shut. She was so tired. But she couldn’t rest. I’d seen it a many a time on war shows mostly, but I never knew it be this hard…. this hard to watch your best friend suffer so knowing their faith and theres nothing you can do. All through the night I hugged and
kissed her told her I loved her.

Cause deep down in side I knew I was spending my last hours with her. I couldn’t stand to see her suffer any more. Then 7:00 am
her suffering was ended.

So graceful looking when you ran. Main flowing through the wind. Your loving big eyes. Leading you through the swamp, or down the road. Ridding you across the field breeze in my hair. You fallowed me like a puppy dog. You some times ate the dog food. Though you’re a horse.

I remember a few times you escaped and went visiting the neighbors. Some times the dogs up the road would chase you. Other times you chase them! Never knew what your next move be. I loved you all so much. Then one day while with your filly and a young colt a man set y’all loose trying to steel you three. You and the others fled. Coco I’m sorry you didn’t see the van coming. I’m sorry boy you were killed in such a cruel way.

Coco, I love you oh so much.
I forgive the man but I still wish none
of this had happened.
Love you always,
