In Memory of My Jenny

It is with an already sad heart that I share a second loss in so few days.  For people who don't have pets it is difficult to understand.  But pets take up a huge place in our hearts and lives.

The status quo for My Jenny and Duchess is that one stays overnight at my house and the other stays at Dale's place.  In the morning the girl at Dale's place, goes for a ride and sometimes they stop in the country for a short run.  Dale drops the girl off at my place (when I am working from home.)

This morning, as My Jenny was loading into the van to come over, she saw one of the city wild cats in they yard and she took off after it.  The cat headed across the street and when My Jenny followed, she ran in front of a car and was hit.  She died a short time later of internal bleeding.

 Born 2/16/2012 she passed away 9/16/2013.  In between, she enjoyed running, swimming (sort of), playing fetch, and playing "let's pretend to go potty so that we can get treats."  She would beg to go outside, sniff around the yard, come back in, and nudge my left hand.  If I didn't give her a treat right away, she would put her chest down on the ground with her paws in front and butt up in the air which was her begging position.  Then she would come back up and nudge my left hand.

My Jenny loved visiting grandma's house.  It was her second home.  She would lay with her head on the puppy pillow and take her morning and afternoon naps.  We will miss our sweetheart so very much.

  2. Traveling across Kansas, I heard a call in vet show on the radio. The vet said something so profound that it was instantly burned into my memory - he said, "The day you bring home a puppy is the day you make a down payment on heart break." Truer words were never spoken. My heart goes out to you. Ann
