I'm so sorry,chewie's Dad. I had a very special little dog named Mitzie I adored. When she died,I was almost hysterical and missed her SO much. I couldn't think of her without crying. It has been many years now and I can think of her without crying now but still miss her so much. THen I lost two more Yorkies,Boo and,recently,Bonnie. Again,tears and tears. I said,"NO MORE DOGS! IT HURTS SO MUCH"! Now I sit here with a little chihuahua named Goober I adore.
My heart mended enought to know other animals needed me. He can never take the place of Mitzie,Boo and Bonnie. He has his own special place in my heart,like each one of them did. And today,he earned my thankfulness forever. Someone tried to break into the house and Goober heard them and went tearing into the living room. I ran for my cell phone and yelled,"I'm calling the police" and did so. Goober never stopped barking and whoever it was ran. Goober thinks he's a German Shepard and I better tell him he's not. He kept throwing himself against the window. The police picked up a man two blocks away who had cuts on his hand from hitting my window so hard it broke. They found his car with burglary materials inside. I hope they don't want to make Goober a K-9 dog.
My heart has been so broken. But you will see another pair of sad eyes when you are ready. SO many need good homes. Only you will know when you are ready though. Your heart will tell you so. God Bless you and God bless sweet Chewie.
