A Tribute To Our Allie Girl

our family is very sad and we are missing her
our beautiful loving baby dog was hit by a car saturday the 30th of october
she had to be given a shot by the vet to go peacefully and stop feeling the pain
when her pain stopped ~ ours truly began
she was more than a dog
she was a member of our family
we all miss her near us
miss touching her
playing with her
and hearing her
she was an abandoned unloved dog when we found her labor day weekend 2005
she was still a bit of a pup ~ close to one yr old
we were not keeping her
but our family fell, and we fell hard
she was so sweet and so loving
she wasn't too big or too small
she still liked to chew up stuff
she stole our hearts and we stole hers
after the accident
as a family we decided to bring her home
dig a hole, and loving wrap our girl in her favorite blanket
so now she is always near us in our back yard at the edge of the woods
near her chickens, momma working in the garden, and her boys playing
she was more than our dog, and we were lucky enough to know it
and so was she.

please enjoy a few pictures of our love.
she loved "her chicks" ~ she checked on them all of the time, never bothered them once even after they were grown
she found the muckiest of muck the first day in the country ~ twice!
after her bath and all dry, she ran off and came back like this!
when we first moved here she was a little confused, and wouldn't get 2 ft away
so we wouldn't leave her alone
our lil digger ~ she was determined to get her momma a mole
look at her cute crinkly face
she always smiled for the camera
she was spoiled rotten ~ she loved laying on
our bed, especially during laundry time.
she had always been an inside dog,
who when she went out was on a leash.
all of that changed when we moved
it made her very happy once we could trust her
enough to do a little roaming
did you hear something? 
Heaven ~ the country for her was her heaven
 you can see the sweetness in her eyes
our sweet baby dog
 
she loved * loved * loved the snow
and rough housing with daddy
she loved camping with her family
on this morning she had spent the night with blake in his tent
labor day camp out 2010 ~ 5 yrs with her family
her favorite thing when we first moved here were the cows at the
end of the road when we said "where are the cows" she was excited
waiting on the bus for her boys
the jingle of my keys meant she was going
for a ride ~ the bus stop, the bank for treats, she didn't care
she was always ready
she was everywhere we were
and it is gonna take some time
because everywhere is where she is missed the most

What a cute dog! I'm sorry to hear about your loss, we went through that just a year ago with one of ours. I'm sure that country lifestyle was enjoyed to the fullest while it lasted. My thoughts are with you.

My heart goes out to you and your family on the loss of your Allie Girl. She will leave a big hole in your hearts and around your house for a long time to come. Bless you for giving her a wonderful life for five years. I can tell from the pictures that she was a happy dog.

So sorry for your loss. Pets are such a part of the family and my heart goes out to you. Love and hugs

Thank you all so much. I had never realized just how deep those animals can get into our hearts. She was beside me all day everyday while the kids are in school and my honey was at work. I am a very strong person, but I have been a mess. I have missed posting and reading all of your blogs. Hug your furry babies tonight!

The love of an animal does not die with her body. I still feel mine get on the bed at night. Just because we can't see the other realm does not mean it doesn't exist. Just because we think it can't be real, doesn't mean it isn't. The love of a dog, the joy of a dog, is so magically transforming. I am sorry for your loss, the emptiness and sorrow. My first visit here today, hope I haven't poked my nose in where it isn't wanted. Peace for all
