An Unexpected Chihuahua

March 12, 2011


This is Rosie, the beloved pet of my neighbor and friend Christine Rodin who passed away just before Christmas. I took Rosie in temporarily because I have known her all my life. After 3 months however, she has become part of our household. My roommate Cajsa and I have fallen in love with her. Initially I was afraid to keep her because she is 15 and I couldn’t face losing another dog especially when my dog Bingo is already 10 and I’ll have to be facing that with him in the next few years. But she has just warmed our hearts and just when we were accepting that she is ours we found out that she has kidney disease and so is spending her last few weeks with us getting tons of love and treats. Her Aunt Linda (Christine’s sister) comes to visit her regularly so she gets that extra special attention. It just goes to show you how life sometimes takes charge and leads us to our destinies. I truly believe Rosie was meant to come here for her final months even though it wasn’t planned that way. Bingo has accepted here being here and I actually think they have been good company for one another. Anyway she is a special little dog and I’m glad we got to know her.

Here is one of Bingo just so he doesn’t feel left out….

    Rosie really *is* a special little dog, and she has flourished under your and your roommate’s care, Lisa. I love coming over and seeing her perky, ever adorable self there, with that plush wagging tail and those big black eyes like. She’s brought a lot of joy into my life, as well. Like your friends, she’s another creature who has benefited from your warmth and generosity.

    Look at that sweet face! How could we ever think we’d let somebody else take her? That blind, deaf, cookie-crazy dog has nestled her way into this home and our hearts, indeed, and I am grateful for every day we get to have her with us. And to Bingo’s credit, he has been muchly concerned and caring when she has had her bad days. You are a saint for braving the heartache of loss to look after her!!
