The Heavens Have A New Tiny Star

5 years ago about this time of the year, I rescued a tiny fawn chi named Willie. His owner had called to schedule a euthanasia, claiming he was very old and becoming so aggressive he was biting everyone. I was working at the clinic that day while the vet was out on a farm call. Long story made short, she lied about almost everything, and I called her back after she had dropped him off to see if I could take him home until I found a good family for him. She agreed. Willie was with us over the holidays, and around February of the following year, an elderly couple who were clients at the clinic lost their elderly chi. Their oldest daughter knew that I had been looking for a home for Willie and she asked me about it. Although it was so hard to say goodbye (I had honestly given up on a good home prior to that), I knew it was the perfect home. He lived in a world of giants at my house ,and he would be the only dog and king of the castle. So Willie went to live with Harold & Margaret, and I even got to see him every day that I was working for them doing housework and chores because Margaret was not well. Willie wasn't nearly as old as the owner had claimed, but he wasn't a spring chicken and had luxating patellas. He had increasing problems over the years with both the legs and his back, but did well on supplements, and eventually pain meds. Earlier this week his little legs gave out for the last time, he was yelping in pain, and they made the painful decision to let him go. I will always have a special place in my heart for Willie. I used to sing a little song to him when he was with us, and even when I went to see him at Harold and Margeret's. 'Wee Willie Winkie, no bigger than my pinkie." Please say a prayer for Harold and Margaret as I know their hearts are breaking. There is a new tiny angel over the bridge now. I love you, Willie. I'm glad you're free of pain now :angelwings

 

Edited to add the picture I finally found of the little guy. Harold and Margaret let us take him to the park one day for pictures, and he was kissing my nose in this one! :)

I'm so sorry. :candle

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.
