Dixie... Ready This Time


Recommended Posts

Our little Dixie Roo Who has gone to the bridge. She was our spooky little girl who had both Kevin and I wrapped around her paw. She was the Queen of the Catch as she never missed a tossed treat. Pink was her color because she always had a devilish glint in her eye and a sly grin on her face. Playing tuggie with Rocky and dragging him down the hall alway made us laugh. True to her spook nature, she never met a stranger she liked. And in true Dixie style, she loved every bullysitx that came her way. And let's not even mention the cat puke she always so thoughtfully recycled for me. She always mugged us for more treats or ear rubbies. Her room was the guest bathroom and there she would lay, waiting for belly rubs when we-- well, you know. She was an absolute joy in our house and a song in our hearts.




We adopted her in January 2001 and she stole our hearts from that day forward. Just as quick as she would snag a treat in the air, she was gone.




Dixie, I love you my sweet little spooky girl.

















She always slept with her front legs crossed.

I think it takes a very special person to take a spook and let them know they are loved and safe with patience and perseverance. I think Dixie found those qualities in your home.


Dogspeed sweet Dixie - lots of bridge kids waiting to help you on your next journey.

I'm so sorry Wendy, I can't even begin to imagine the pain you and Kevin are in right now. Just know that my thoughts are with you :grouphug:f_red

Wendy, I am so, so sorry. When I got your message yesterday, I was in shock just as I suspect you were. I spent the day crying and wishing I lived closer to you so that I could be there with you. You know you have my shoulder any time and I would have been there in a heartbeat.

Give Kevin a hug for me until I can do it in Dewey and ear scritches to the other pups.



Run free sweet Dixie. I wish I could have met you in person. Please go find Jezebel, Tami's cat who went to the bridge this week and she will show you the ropes along with Joe and all the other bridge babies.




Kari and the pups.

Oh, Wendy, I am so sorry. Spooks are special pups that worm their way into our hearts.


We share your pain. Big hugs for you and Kevin and your gang.

Oh, Wendy, I'm so sorry for the loss of your sweet Dixie. You gave her the greatest gift of all - a safe place to rest her head, to play, and parents who knew to give her just what she needed ... the patience to allow her to establish her place in your home and your hearts. I'm so sorry for your loss... you and Kevin are in my thoughts today...
