My Beautiful Silver Pee-wee Princess, Sissy


Recommended Posts

I'm re-posting this since it was lost when the last server died. I finally changed the text of my signature too. Man I didn't think that would hurt so much...


It's been over a month now, but it doesn't sting any less yet. Cancer has robbed me of another family member in a swift and brutally cruel fashion. We were supposed to have five more years… I still can't believe she's gone.


I do want to share some of my favorite photos from my precious and far-too-short twenty-seven months with my little Sissy-girlie. We all adored her from the first instant we saw her. She was my first girlie dog. She taught my husband that it is possible to truly love a pet. Tipper believed Sissy was the best birthday gift ever. Sissy gave Chancy the gift of self-confidence. We all adore her still. Our pee-wee silver princess ruled the world with a velvet paw. Sissy is my sassy fearless adventure-girl who only played alone, and made sure we all knew we belong to her.


Sissy spins



In mostly chronological order…


Sissy loved Tipper from the first moment she laid eyes on him. Tipper got used to the idea :rolleyes: … Sissy’s kisses were always reserved for a select few :



Sissy, my hair-trigger roooing soprano:



I told her if she wasn’t careful, her face might stick this way. And for a minute after she woke up, it did! :lol :



Sissy comforted me while I was sick:



A picnic in Taylor’s Falls. I loooooove her sticky-uppy ears:



Hubby stealing a smooch at a picnic at Lake Pepin:



A hike along the St. Croix River:



One of my all-time favorite princess photos :wub: :





Part one of three…



My husband and I were always incredulous that a family out there just decided they didn’t want Sissy. She’d been bounced after a number of years. We couldn’t have been luckier…


My beautiful angel :wub: :



Sissy’s Chariot:



A charming hound-friendly B&B in Fulton Missouri, with a stunning garden courtyard perfect for greyhounds to frolic:



Sissy & hubby, reading in bed at the Loganberry:



A hot summer walk along the Mississippi in New Orleans with Maucarden and Atty:



Sissy had a poor racing career, but she made it to the Hall of Fame anyway. ;) She left her signature in the “greyhound guestbook” in the museum TWICE, much to my husband’s embarrassment:



An early-autumn visit by some tiger swallowtails:



Giving me the bug-eye:


How I’ll miss waking up to see four silver paws poking up in the air between hubby and me in bed…



Part 2 of three…



At an adoption promo at the MN Renaissance Festival:



Lake Superior beach “up nort” in January:



A winter hike along the Temperance River and Lake Superior. The trails were very icy, and Sissy was the only one who actually thoroughly enjoyed the hike:



Volunteering at Twin Cities Public Television, this was Sissy’s BIG LIVE TV DEBUT :lol It didn’t hurt that the cameraman immediately fell in love with Sissy:



My favorite photo of all three: Sissy, Tipper and Chancy:



How we while away the sub-zero days of winter… Sissy was in her customary and rightful place in the center of our bed :



She patiently endured some terrible abuse ;) :



One of our last “good” days:



This takes my breath away:



I love you Sissy, my tiny silver princess. We always will.

~Aimee, with Flower, Alan, Queenie, & Spodee Odee! And forever in my heart: Tipper, Sissy, Chancy, Marla, Dazzle, Alimony, and Boo. This list is too damned long.

Everyday something reminds me of Sissy and now I smile with a few tears instead of just tears.


One day I will get my crew to roo, I just wish Sissy had taught them.

Sissy's memorial post was the first thing I saw on the new server before they copied the posts over from the temp server and seeing it made me just as sad as I was when I first heard you'd lost her. I'm so sorry for your loss of sweet Sissy :grouphug :grouphug

Thank you so much for sharing all those great photos.

Your Sissy was a well-loved girlie.


I know how much you must all miss her every day.

Take comfort in knowing how happy you made her time with you.

I am so sorry. :candle What a sweet girlie. :grouphug

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.
