Remembering Aimee, dog princess
As you know from the topic below, Alice lost her precious Aimee dog princess yesterday. Alice helped her over the rainbow bridge. Not to long ago, she told us of Aimee's autoimmune illness and problems she was having.
Alice says: "The past couple of days she was getting weaker and weaker and the sores in her mouth were so bad she couldn't eat anything. We thought we had more time but it just shows how nothing is certain and every day should be enjoyed. We should love our loved ones, two-leggers and four-leggers, while we have them, because we never know how long any of us have here on this Earth.
"Aimee, dog princess, was our protector. Here is a close-up of her. She was always very serious about her job of protecting us. She hardly ever played and didn't really like doggie treats that much. She often left hers on the floor and Max would snatch it when Aimee did her house patrol."
House patrol! That's how Scooter is, always checking the perimiter of the fence and alerting to every move anyone makes.
Tell us more stories you remember about Aimee. And everyone else, share favorite memories of those you loved and lost too.
I've lost three pets, but by far cat Yogi was the hardest for me, as I felt guilty. I had him only a year, but he changed my life so much. Tramp and Penny were old and it was their time, but no matter how long a life they've had its never enough for us.
And I know from personal experience their spirits live on. And we too will join them again one day.
P.S. Added photo is of Aimee and Trouble, the cat Alice and The Professor lost several months ago. Now they are together again keeping watch in a different way.
