I remember when back in the day
Little dogs, rats on leads I used to say
I always had big dogs, Collies and such
Never thought of having a little dog so much
But a companion for Max was needed one day
Then you arrived and stole my heart away
It was yours the moment you sat in my hand
Such a rush of love I'll never understand
You were Mummy's girl for twelve long years
You'd laugh with me and lick away my tears
We'd have breakfast together in the morning
'til the biscuits ran out, then I was boring
You'd sit with me while I had tea
In case anything took your fancy
I can't believe our time went so fast
As I sit and recall our wonderful past
No one realised how ill you were
My stoic little bundle of fur
The cancer was making it hard for you to breathe
And I knew that soon you would have to leave
I would have done anything for you to stay
But that damn disease was eating you away
I'll always be grateful for our time together
And I know I haven't lost you forever
When my time comes, as I'm sure it may
I know you'll be waiting on that day
With all my animals long gone past
We'll all be together safe at last
The house is empty and cold without you
You were my baby and my best friend too
Now you're with Max and stapling his ears
And all we're left with is memories and tears
But I'll always be grateful it was you we found
My wonderful little Foozie Hound.
As some of you already know, about a week after we lost Nikita our last dog Suzi was diagnosed with Lung Cancer after the vets noticed something suspicious during a routine spaying operation. Well a week ago it was decided that she should be spared the inevitable pain and distress by letting her go before she started to suffer.

I couldn't bring myself to write a journal about this with it being so close to the journal about Nikita and since I had this tribute to post I felt it best to combine the two.

Poem written by my Mother-In-Law

She is, though obviously she wishes she didn't have to write these types of poems... Hmm I should ask if she'll let me upload that poem from back when we got that severe flood warning.

What gets me is when people say "just get another dog or another cat. That's like saying "oh just have another baby" if your kid dies.

I know right, it is horrid. I had to get another dog, I need that companionship, without it I am a wreck, anxiety and depression dig in their claws. But I will never ever have another dog like my Gina. She may have been a shy dog around anyone outside the family, and rather nasty towards outsiders but she was mine. I could always count on her to be there. When people think a pet can just be replaced.... it is horrible just plain horrible cuz they can not ever be replaced.

We're planning to get another dog, though with the way finances are it may not be possible.
