I had these dogs since I was 10 years old. They passed away when I was 24. I miss them terribly, especially the black long haired one. She was like a baby to me. She kept me company when I was a kid, comforted me when my grandparents passed away...Sue was with me for everything. I still cry just thinking about her. I hope I'll see her on the rainbow bridge when my time comes, but odds are she's already passed on and joined my grandparents. She was their dog to begin with. I just inherited her, and she was the best present my grandparents ever gave me, even if it was posthumously. I'll never stop thanking them for the gift that was Sue and Tammy. Tammy was skittish of me, and more my sister's dog, but Sue was mine in every way. Even on the day she passed away, she waited until I got home from work, wagged her tail at me, let me hold her, then went to lie down and passed away peacefully. They were both tiny applehead chihuahuas, less than 3lbs each. Sue passed on first, and Tammy grieved herself to death and passed a week after Sue. They were half-sisters. They had the same mother. Tammy was 1 year older than Sue, which is why I don't understand to this day why Sue had to leave me first. Either way, their loss hurt.
I love you, Susu and Tammy. I hope to see you both again someday. Give Wuffles my love. Wuffles is another dog I lost. She was a sheltie, and she was so incredibly smart. She died from old age as well, just like Sue and Tammy.
I hope this thread isn't just for birds, because dogs leave just as big a hole in your heart when they pass away as birds do. I lost my bird Sunny when I was 13. I have no pictures of him (I do have pics of Sunny Junior, though, who looks just like him). I miss him too, but these dogs here left the biggest hole in my heart imaginable when they passed on. These dogs were special, as special as any bird, and have left me in tears daily.
