White Dog

dscn6548

This is White Dog.  Four years ago, she was dumped on our property.  She was exhausted from a long journey.  We could tell that she had been cared for, because she was  beautifully clipped.  She followed Daddy back and forth on the lawn mower for several hours.  Finally, we let her in the house.

WD couldn’t hear.  The vet estimated she was more than 10 years old.  She loved my Mom.  When no one was looking, Daddy would sneak a scratch or two behind her ears.  She was a good friend at a time when I was going through a rough patch in my life. 

Because Mom and Daddy took her in, she was able to ride in a golf cart.  Take a dip in either a pond or a swimming pool.  Have her ears licked by a crusty old Blue Heeler.  Drink out of the toilet.  Find sanctuary in Mom’s pimped out closet.  Eat weenies every day with her aspirin. 

She was a sweet girl who will be missed.  Rest in peace Dub.  You were a good dog.

I’m so sorry that your family has lost such a good friend. It sounds like she was really loved, and how wonderful that she found such a sweet home for the last few years of her life.

so sad to read this news. pets bring such love and comfort to our lives, it is so sad when they go. Gurl, sounds like you need April to be over. However, with all the crazy things in your life these past few weeks, you have remained upbeat and hopeful. God lives in you and through you. Thanks for brightening up everyone else’s day.

Oh, so sorry 🙁 We had a dog that my mom “rescued” from an untimely death. No idea how old she was, but we had her for 10 + years. Remember the good!

What a precious Cocker Spaniel! Don’t they just melt your heart? I lost my CS to old age and heart failure the day before my birthday in 2002, so I know how you feel!

So sorry for your loss, Lincee. Our dogs are such wonderful, loving creatures that i know God has a special place in heaven for them. And there’s no doubt that White Dog is there. While her time here was short, thank goodness she had such a loving family to take care of her as much as she took care of you!

If you look at my website

you will see a three cousins of White Dog’s – two probably met her at The Rainbow Bridge. I still have one with me, Sadie, who will be 13 next month and looks like she could be White Dog’s sister. It is wonderful that you enriched the last chapter of her life on earth and you were lucky to have known her. They are special spirits that is for sure!

Precious angel — sent from heaven and now has returned. Blessings to your parents’ kind hearts to offer love and sanctuary to a lost four-legged soul.

So sorry, Lincee. Your family was blessed to have her and she was blessed to have you all. You can always tell how wonderful people are by how they treat animals, and taking White Dog in speaks volumes about you all.

And I may just have weenies and aspirin for lunch in her honor… I’ll skip the water from the toilet, though.
