In Memory of Our Precious Patti Marie....

It deeply saddens me to say that our precious little Patti Marie passed away Monday, March 18, 2013 due to kidney failure. She was able to pass at home on her favorite spot on the bed with her favorite blankie surrounded by her mommy, daddy and her brother and sisters. A world of thanks to our vet who came to the house at 9 pm Monday night and put her to sleep while I snuggled, rubbed and kissed on her the whole time – until the very end. It was so beautiful, peaceful and sad at the same time.

We gave the pups time to say goodbye and sniff her. D'Angelo's good-bye to Patti was so precious. Once we put her on the floor he went up to her body -- he kissed her eyes, kissed her face, sniffed her tushy one last time, let out a big sigh and a tear came out of his eye as he walked out of the room. So very sad but so beautiful. D'Angelo was so in love with Patti. It is hard on him so I am doing extra stuff (more car rides) and extra lovin' (if that's even possible - I have always given him a ton of love).

Patti was my world and the love of my life. A part of me died when she did. I used to always look at her and say "you complete me." I have no regrets at all. I loved Patti so deeply for 13 years and we were always together -- always. She was 8 weeks old and a ½ pound when I got her. I can still remember her puppy breath. She was truly the sweetest, gentlest, most beautiful puppy dog in the world. I would go through all the pain again to be able to experience the "pure love" that she gave me. I am so very blessed to have had her in my life and look forward to the day that we can be reunited once more. Mommy and Daddy love you so very much little Patti Marie!

Thank you for all the love and happiness that you brought into our lives. We will miss you more than you could ever imagine sweet baby Patti Marie.

Love Always,

Mommy, Daddy, D'Angelo, Macy and Sadie

Happy St. Patti's Day!

Our sweet little Saint Patti!

Today is a very special day for us. Not because we are Irish (my husband is but not the rest of our little group) but because it's a day we celebrate our St. Patti -- Patti Marie that is! ♥

So today is Happy St. Patti's Day! Just for today -- we are all Irish (even if it's just in our hearts!) :o)

Happy St. Patti's Day to you all! May the luck of the Irish be with you today and always!

Belly Scratch

This is sooooo our little Sadie. In fact, Off The Leash cartoon artist must have a puppy dog just like Sadie because the cartoons reflect her personality "to a T." Hilarious! :-)

Do you need a Dog-ervention?


Curious to know how many of these signs do you have with your fur babies? :-)
