Sleeping with Pig

Today we celebrate Thanksgiving – the most honest of all holidays.  We give thanks for the family and friends in our lives and for the bounty we enjoy.  Today I am giving a special prayer of thanks for our wonderful Mamie.  We lost her yesterday to liver failure.

We only had the pleasure of Mamie, a feisty little Cairn terrier, for a little more than 2 years.  She came to us from previous homes who could not keep her.  What a loss for them because she was an amazing little dog.

She loved pigs.  We are not sure how she could tell the difference but she knew her pigs…..and she had many!  And she loved to play fetch more than anything.  We would throw her pig, a ball, a stuff toy, and most recently her squeaky airplanes (a gift from neighbors when she first got sick in July) down the hallway in the house for her to chase.  And chase she would hundreds of times if you would throw it that many.  She LOVED it!

And she loved playing with her brothers Jed and Lincoln….especially Lincoln who was patient when we first got Mamie to help her overcome her toy aggression.  It took several months but she finally understood that he just wanted to play. (You can see more about Mamie in this anniversary post.)

Mamie was our sweet little girl.  She was devilish and clever.  She was adorable and manipulating.  She knew how to work the room.  And many of our Facebook friends loved Mamie as well.  We post photos on Facebook almost each day of our visits to the dog park and many people got to know her that way.

So today we send up a prayer of Thanksgiving for the time we had with our little girl, Mamie.  We loved her so much and are so happy that she is feeling no more pain.  We will miss her forever.

Two years ago today Mamie came to live with us.  (See that here.)

She was four years old and came in like a little whirlwind.  She has some treat aggression and a bad toy aggression problem.  But after a few months all that got worked out.

Now she runs our household.  She is the littlest one but every one “minds” her.

She is very demanding….especially when it comes to playing with her toys.  She loves to fetch.  And we love her so we “fetch” a lot!

So here’s to Mamie.  We are looking forward to many, many more good years with her.

Enjoy the many faces of Mamie as we celebrate her today!!!

Some Days You Just Have to Play

My morning routine involves getting a cup of coffee and heading to the computer to write my daily post for this blog.  Since Mamie arrived it has been harder and harder to do quickly because her morning routine involves playing with a squeaky toy.  And she is very persistent.  She will place the toy at your feet and look up with those eyes.  And if you don’t keep picking it up and throwing it for her she will politely place it in your lap.  I guess that’s the terrier in her.  Did I mention she’s very persistent???!!!
