Marla, My Black Velvet Girlie


Recommended Posts

I was forced to let you go on Monday, my little Marla. I'm so sorry I couldn't help you heal. I'm sorry we didn't have more time. I'm sorry you so often seemed a little sad. You were only part of my pack for ten months, and we are sorry we didn't have a chance to know you better.


I know your previous owner passed away. If she loved you like I have grown to love you in such a short time, I dearly hope you find each other again. I know she loved you. You are the only bounce I've ever seen who came with belongings. Even a hand-built raised feeding dish set.


When you came into our lives and our home just before Christmas, you helped heal our hearts, so recently broken by the loss of our Sissy. You had moments of playfulness, always right before mealtimes. You often would come prancing into the room where I was fixing your dinner, with your mouth all gummed up with saliva-soaked fuzz you'd methodically plucked from your favorite stuffie toy. How many slimy wads of fluff have I pulled from your tongue? :lol


But you most often seemed a little melancholy. I often wondered if you missed your previous owner. I wondered if there was a special favorite way you liked to be scratched or played with, that only she and you knew... I'm sorry I never discovered what made you truly happy.


I miss your velvet-soft fur, I miss your beautiful little face, your big round head and dainty little paws. I miss throwing your stuffies straight up over your head for you to catch, I miss you drooling over my shoulder while I tried to coax Chancy to eat when she was sick. I even miss you grouching at kitten-Sid who only wanted to groom you. We called you "Bitsy," which meant bitchy, but in a cute way. :lol


I miss you, my little Marzie-Doates. I love you, little velvet girl. And I'm just so sorry.


Your first day as part of our family:



Your beautiful little face...





Your tenth birthday...



Sharing Tipper's bed-- he who never shares his bed...



Sharing Tipper's ice cream...



Romping in the snow with Chancy...



You were certainly Poppa's girl...






~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.

So pretty Aimee and I know she was happy and knew she was loved. I'm just so sorry it was for so short a time. Bless your poor battered heart.

I'm so sorry. :cry1


I'm glad she got to spend her last months with you; I wish she didn't have to leave so soon.


Godspeed pretty girlie.

You can't fake or hide love and those pictures tell it all.....she was filled with you and your DH love. She had that home with you all. Run free sweet Marla. Prayers for peace and comfort.

I'm so sorry you lost Marla so soon. She was a most fortunate girl to have 2 families who loved her so much. Godspeed Marla!
