Though now this little darning
is put to rest in an ex-friends yard, she will forever be in
my heart with love and happy memories. My beloved Cuddles was
one of a kind, and will live in my heart as the dog who loved
life and lived for the moment. She worked hard at being a good dog
always, and played just as hard as she worked. Always willing,
excited and looking for more to do. Learning the whole time she
lived; loving every moment of life.
Cuddles was the joy of my life,
ever faithful and true to me to the very end. Her love for me never waved, and she looked forward to each and every day of
life as though it were her first. My husband and I called her our Baby Girl and
she answered to it as though it were her name for real. My baby
girl always greeted me with excitement and joy when we'd come
home from being gone away. Always with an eager happiness that
carried my heart with it, as though my thoughts were a band
that couldn't be removed.
It's not everyday that one finds a dog with the ability to do things in the nature that cuddles
did for me. It was like she knew every move and thought before
I had them most of the time. We did things
so well together that it was unbelievable to most other people, and I knew from the moment I touched
Cuddles that she was a very special little dog. There was nothing that this little dog wouldn't try, and
nothing she did had any half way to it. Cuddles always gave 100%.
Though I didn't push Cuddles to learn a lot of things
I wanted to teach her,
she picked up on so many things. Yet, as her conduction got worse, she lost some of the ability to work and
play as she did when I first got her. None the less, I loved her all the same. Toward the end, she couldn't
play like she use to and I could see the difficulty she was just beginning to have. Yet, our little darning
still managed to keep going for a year. Though she couldn't catch the ball at the end and she couldn't do
things just to please me, Cuddles remained a very special part of
The little dog who was, is now with our Lord. Cuddles is still in
as the memories come to mind, and I am reminded how much we
both loved this little dog, while always receiving
love in return from her. As with dogs before her, my memories with Cuddles are as special and as joyful to
me. I will always remember my little baby girl with warm a heart and lots of love. If there is such a place
as Rainbow Ridge, may my baby girl be there in good health, never again to know the affect of being an
epileptic. May she once again be able to catch that ball and do all the other things she loves. May the wind
always be at her back, and the sun always be at her face to keep her warm.
I love you Cuddles and will never forget you.
