My Sweet Darbee-Doo


Recommended Posts



My Sweet old gal Darbee-Doo is gone :brokenheart

Her little body was so frail that after a couple of seizures (several days apart) she couldn't hold on any longer and answered her call to the bridge


Even tho her body was frail, her spirit was strong up until the very end. she was 30 days shy of her 15th birthday!


She was a champion Smile-er :D and she LOVED coffee! :P . She still had ALL OF HER TEETH!!! She was my little chinchilla - the softest THICKEST fur anyone had ever felt! She loved to DIG holes - give Darbee a piece of soft dirt, and she'd have a hole dug so fast and would turn around and lay in it with her head on the ledge! :wub: She did everything in her own time... tell her to Hurry up,, and you know you'd be waiting extra long just because she new you were in a hurry.

She was a tease ~ never very good at running,, but really good at getting all the others to run,, then looking at them with a funny look of "ha, ha,, made ya run!" and would come back to me for a treat! She survived and trived after her LP tie-back surgery at the age of 13


So many things, they come to my mind at the strangest time of the day, and the tears keep flowing. I miss her every second of the day.


She left us on 1/2/10 at 2am. From between the tears i could tell that the stars were really bright that night, her friends were waiting and welcoming her.


You will be forever in my heart,, sweet Darbee!

I love you!!!

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

I am so very sorry for your loss. If it is any comfort, she had a good, long life with you and knew how well she was loved.

We were so broken hearted to hear about Miss Darbee Doo. Lenny's best girl was a very special lady who is much loved and will be so missed.

We were so blessed to share some of her life in the BDR.


God speed to you special girl, knowing how very much you are loved and will be greatly missed.

Run with all our Angels, you are among the very best. Please continue to watch over those who love you, and be sure to visit Rascal when you can
