I Miss You, Baby Girl

 

I have parted with many material things this past year, but one loss stands up and shouts in my heart right now.
I miss my little chihuahua, Ms. Skeeter. This was my first Christmas without her since I rescued her in 2007.
I haven’t had many regrets about the belongings I gave away, threw away and sold, which is good, because when I mourn, I mourn long and hard.
But, as I wrapped presents for my dog, Maggie Mae, Ms. Skeeter’s absence was loud and my heart was aching with missing her.
She was a feisty little lady, and as she grew older, a biter. She would bite me savagely for cutting her nails, she’d attack anyone who touched shoes (so we had to hide all the shoes) and sometimes, she’d bite me and Maggie Mae for no reason at all.
Between her bites, we all enjoyed playing and running, toys, hugs, and kisses.
She slept beside my computer when I wrote, and when she wanted a break, she’d lay on the computer. She was by my side for twelve years, whether I wrote, walked, cleaned the house, sat outside or slept. She loved to hold the remote and she always kept one paw on something of mine. Lord help me if I wanted it back.
I miss you, baby girl. I know you’re playing with the other dogs in Heaven; but I wish you were still here with me.

Goodbye For Now Ms. Skeeter (Kita) March 26

  1. Ahhhh, You misted me up, My Friend!! So very sorry for your loss! After you’ve looked into those eyes for so many years there is nothing that will fill that void in your heart!! We have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is now 7 and when I am captured by her eyes looking at me I think about the time you are going through now and it makes me want to cry. There is no way to forget the missing her, but there is always the joy in your heart for all the time you spent together. Savor that time, My Dear!! Shedding a tear for you!!!

  2. Jeanne Marie,
    I’m saddened to hear about your precious Kita. My sister has experienced the same with her cats and it makes her so sad. Though you’ll always miss in in some way, I pray the good memories she left you with crowd out the sadness of her not being here with you.
    On another and funnier note, I was just thinking the same thing today that you wrote about – does anyone really care about what I do and have to offer? So, I just decided to do it anyway and offer it to God. We have to do what we have to do – you know? May God bless your talent and efforts and thank you for stopping by my blog for a visit.

    Blessings,
    Marianne
