Tommy: Woofs, everyone. Tommy here. I have been waiting for #1 to return before writing this post with her. Some of you who follow us on Facebook already know this. You may also know that "Tristesse" means sadness in French. You see, my beautiful mama, Minnie, got her angel wings last Friday. It was what we were most afraid of when we announced the loss of Auntie Cora three weeks ago. At the time, Mama Minnie seemed fine but it seems there was a hidden heart issue and she left very suddenly. It was so quick and unexpected that Ms. A and Mr. R are still having a hard time believing it.
I cannot begin to tell you how glad I am that I got to spend that time with Mama Minnie last month, when #1 was in Japan. And I know I have been a very lucky boy. Most woofies never see their mama again once they are weaned and go to their forever families. I got to see my Mama and even my Daddy, on a regular basis. Ms. A told #1 that I gave Mama Minnie lots and lost of kisses when I was with her in March. Maybe I knew something, deep down.
Here she is, Mama Minnie the beautiful:
And here are some pics of me and my Mama:
It was from my Mama Minnie that I learned to love all creatures:
And here I am with both my Mama Minnie and my Daddy Joe:
I will miss you more than I can say, Mama Minnie. I was so lucky to be able to spend time with you until my 9th year. Run Free, my beautiful Mama. This is the picture I shall always remember you by, of the two of us taken last year on my 9th birthday:
Forever Loved - Minnie
