#19: So Long, Sweet Girl

This are the kind of first I really do not like: saying goodbye to my second beloved dog in 2009. Miss Patsy Clementine, she of the perpetually sunny disposition, made her transition on Tuesday, December 11. Patsy made it past ten, which was yet another miracle, considering her many health challenges, namely, Cushing’s disease, which caused the big problems over the last year.

As my vet, the wonderful Kathryn Van Winkle, once put it, “It’s just Patsy’s world, and we’re all passing through it.” That was the truth, but what a sweet world to share with a sweet, sweet girl.

I shall miss her championship-level snoring (check out her video here), the way she loved to cuddle with any type of soft surrounding, her “Feed Me” shuffle dance. But most of all, I shall miss my own Miss Congeniality.

It’s oddly comforting to know that her brother, ThunderDog, and cousins Lily, Bear, and Pearl and friend Felix among many others are all there to greet her.

May she and ThunderDog be chomping down Breath Busters in Doggie Heaven! And snore REALLY loud, Miss P Bug, so I can still hear you.
