It seems that Box of Chocolates lesson is all too real. Between Phantom's tumor, and what happened to Dre, and the shooting in Baltimore -- there's way too much going on for us to register. And then a short while ago I learned that one of the most adorable, flirtatious, feisty, wire fox terrier lassies I've ever known succumbed to nasal carcinoma today.
Her name was Ms. Libby Longtail -- and I gave my heart to her the very first time I saw her when we were little more than puppies. At first she told me she was too young to have a regular boyfriend. Later I think she just liked knowing how many smitten swains she had. But I loved her anyway!
And we had so much fun! Her lipstick-stained e-mails written in purple passion ink never failed to make my heart jump.
Lucky girl, she was surrounded by terrier brothers who both adored her and gave her plenty of space. And the best mom and dad possible.
And now, at the tender age of 7, she's crossed the Bridge, where I'm sure she is about to break a zillion hearts!!!
I can only send my wirey love to her mom and dad and remember what a special foxy girl she was.
A very sad Jakey
