In Memory of Skeeter by Skeeter
The Saint and I just received some really sad news. Our little friend Skeeter has walked over the Rainbow Bridge! She was very special to us and not just due to her name. They had no idea we had a special pet named Skeeter, just a coincidence they name her that. She was the sweetest doggie in the world! She would come to our house to visit us and we kept treats for her. She was gentle, smart and loved to give kisses. She would always bring a smile to our faces with her visits. She was not your typical hyper Jack Russell.
Skeeter was way too young to walk over that Bridge being only 3 years old. I know we have had some really sad postings lately and I am not one to make tears flow but I need to tell you how Skeeter died in hopes that this will not happen to another beloved pet.
Skeeter’s daddy was cutting down a tree. When the tree started to fall, Skeeter was in the way of harm but running from the tree. When daddy yelled at Skeeter to hurry up, she heard her daddy’s voice and like a good little girl, she stopped in her tracks to look back at daddy for the command. And that is when the tree hit her little innocent body. Daddy is devastated over this as Skeeter was his little side-kick going everywhere daddy went.
I know animals have instincts with such things, but I cannot stress enough how important it is to keep your pets away from such harmful things as yard work. In my opinion, a pet should not be in the yard while one is mowing the grass as something horrible could happen to them. So please don’t let little Skeeter’s death be in vain. Let this be a reminder to keep your animals safe while taking on task in the yard which could be harmful to a pet....
In the picture Skeeter had stopped by for one of her visits one summer day after I had been in the yard working. I was hot and tired and had come inside to take a break and was laying on the futon resting. The Saint let her into the house to visit with me. She jumped up on top of me and filled me with kisses. She brought this tired body back to life!
The Saint and I were happy that we had a visit from her last weekend. She filled us with kisses to last a lifetime!
