Goodbye to my Minnie Pearl - RIP

Today my 15 year old yorkie-pooh crossed the rainbow bridge.

She was not eating and had gotten lethargic the past few days. I bathed her and got her to eat a little yesterday before getting on a plane for business. This morning my husband called to tell me she was worse and he was taking her to the vet. Unfortunately it was all bad news and we had to say goodbye to our loyal pet, Minnie Pearl.

She was with me since she was 6 weeks old and my shadow for the past 15 years. She had no idea she was a dog and quite annoyed when we brought more dogs into our home. She never was one to play with other dogs, but always at my side. She became quite ornery in her old age and became Cujo if you woke accidentally at night. She didn't like kids either but she loved us. She loved me. She's been my constant companion for so long, I will be lost without her.

I'm devastated that I wasn't there, and Im sure she wondered where I was. But the rest of our family was with her and they held the phone to her ear so I could say my goodbyes.

I know she isn't crossing the bridge alone. I'm sure my doberman Max was there waiting for her to show her the way. Damn it's rough losing a fur baby. I wish I was home today.
