Another Teddy
« on: October 20, 2013, 12:32:05 am »
DD2's little shih-tzu, Teddy, escaped from our yard this evening and ventured into the road, where he met a rather nasty end. He was a fun, playful fellow, always happy to see us, and so affectionate. Of course, the kids are crushed, especially DD2, who bought him with her own money and loved him best. He was also very good for Pepper, our 7-yr-old American bulldog, who benefited from the companionship, exercise, and stimulation he gave her, not to mention cozy snuggles together. Even she is moping in her bed tonight.

Teddy has a nice resting place in our field where he liked to play. I hope he's now on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge, frolicking with Zane and Teddy.

Sigh, October is always such a bad month...

Aw no. It's sad when an old faithful friend comes to the end of their days, but one taken too soon is heartbreaking too.

Oh Aerlys,  I'm so sorry to hear that. Give your daughter extra hugs from us.
My family has had Shih Tzu's since day one. I gave my last Shih Tzu to my mother last year when the Cavaliers started overwhelming the house. They are the dearest little family members always at your feet. Keep found memories of Teddy.

I'm so sorry Aerlys, to hear that you and your family have also lost a dear, furry friend.  Hang on to all of the happier memories, and please give DD2 a big hug for me.

From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

I'm sorry for your family's loss.  *hugs* all around but especially to DD2.

Thank you, everyone. DD2 is trying very hard to be brave through all this. Your well-wishes mean so much to her. On the upside, I just found out someone is trying to find a new home for their puggle. I'm hoping to get a hold of them. He's a real sweetie, housebroken (big plus) and great with kids (another big plus).

Cross your fingers!
