A Big Thanks

I don't even know how to begin to say how I feel. Im am just so blessed to have such wonderful friends here in Blogville and it has been over whelming about how many of you thought so much of Jazzi. Your many kind words, thoughts, and prayers via comments and Email had been amazing. My heart has truly been touched-more than I can tell you.  Even though I cry when I read them, they have helped to know that you all care and understand.

Jazzi was my birthday gift 8 yrs ago from my kids. She was a happy Scottie and had that Scottie-tude sometimes. Jazzi was the perfect dog for our crazy family. She let me take all my pictures, she just knew that the sooner she cooperates the sooner it will be over!! Ha! Jazzi loved the grandkids and she kept a good watch over her house. She loved car rides and was a perfect road traveler.

I could tell that she wasn't herself on my birthday (fri) She hung in there until the morning after my birthday (sat) before she crossed over the bridge. Its like maybe she wanted it like that. Friday night I just held her and she laid her head on my shoulder and we just sat quietly.
My decision was very difficult for me to make and I hated to do it but she was so weak and I couldn't keep her here if she couldn't have a good quality of life. Jazzi has her Pink Angel wings now and she is running with her friends and they are all healthy and I'm sure that she is passing out tacos no doubt ha! Jazzi will forever be in our hearts. She took a piece of my heart that's for sure.
We were so shocked and we are doing ok. Some days are better than others ya know? Just missing her tons. It just seems so unbelievable still. We had 8 wonderful years with Jazzi.

Jazzi LOVED tacos and we are still going celebrate National Taco Day on Oct 4th, in her honor. She would have wanted that. So for now Mark your calendars--Oct 4th!!
I will post about it later. I will do the Christmas gift and Christmas card exchange also, so keep those in mind too. Jazzi loved getting Christmas cards and gifts as many of you have too.

I do want to close with a funny story that we never got to blog about. Our back door has a little lag and lately she has realized that she can catch that lag. Well one day she did and got out and we had no idea. She was walking around and a car of teenage girls saw her. They stopped, opened their car door and she jumped right in. They were running errands so Jazzi rode along with. They went to the bank where she got a doggie biscuit, to McDonald's where she got some foodables.
They went to the kennel to have her tags checked. Turns out that these teenage girls lived the next street over so they brought Jazzi home. When Jazzi got home, she jumped out of the car and ran inside like Hey Mom, guess where I've been!! Ha! It was so cute, that I couldn't get mad at her. So she had quite the adventure that day.

Jazzi will have a successor, not sure when though. Not sure if I want a Scottie puppy or a Scottie rescue. If any of you have any leads or contacts for me, please pop me e-mail. Dcraftsalot(at)yahoo(dot)com
I can do Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa. I need a dog that is good with kids and one Dog-zilla lol Addi is big but she wouldn't hurt a flea. Oh Btw, Addi hasn't been over since so she has no idea yet. When she does come over she will be looking for Jazzi.

I hope this hasn't been too long and that I haven't lost too many readers lol but again, Thanks so much for your kindness as it means so much. When you eat a taco think of Jazzi and give your dog/cat an extra hug today, cuz you never know.

  1. Mom Kim here - Oh Diana, you are just so wonderful. I know it must be so difficult right now but you are carrying on as Jazzi would want you to. I just realized something (or maybe remembered) it is our pets that give us that strength. We want to be the person that our pets would want us to be. They would not want us to take to our beds or isolate and be sad because that is not the way they would do. It was thinking of you and Jazzi who helped remind me of that. And BTW - you just go on and on whenever you want (in fact I didn't really think you did today) So glad Jazzi got to have that adventure and bless those girls for getting her checked then actually bringing her home - yes, I can see Jazzi as she ran in as if to say, WOW, what an adventure I had and then of course she would tell you all about it. Yes, you talk about Jazzi whenever and however much you want. ((((((Cyber-hugs to you))))))

  2. So very sorry for your loss. Jazzi was wonderful! One of the first Scotties we followed on Blogger and we very much appreciate your encouragement to blog. We are definitely not as good at it, but it always seemed that Jazzi had many more good adventures than we did! We'll have to change that in her honor. It's pretty amazing to me how much joy and love those little furballs bring into our lives. When I read about Jazzi I told my Jacque and Pippen and let them know again how much I love and value them in my life. You are right, you never know. We are thinking of you and your family.

  6. Diana:
    Jazzi looks so beautiful in those pink wings and they are just perfect for her. I will always think of Jazzi when I see tacos and remember her with a smile. I loved reading her adventure story, we can just see her doing that for sure! WE also understand how letting them go is the final loving act for them that we can do. Hugs from all of us here in Iowa

  9. Jazzi will always be here and we will certainly be here celebrating her taco day and sending her (and you) christmas cards. We have a feeling Jazzi will show you in her own cryptic way the perfect doggie that will be waiting for your love - maybe the street where is lives will have a Taco Bell on the corner :)

  13. What a an adventure that was for Jazzi! How fortunate that she fell into safe hands.
    Bertie and I had been wondering about Addi. Jazzi will be sorely missed by so many of us.
    We are so glad that you still want to celebrate Taco day. I have told Bertie that he is not having any haggis on his this year…
    All the best,
    Gail.

  14. A couple of years ago we lost Kenzie at 9-it's really not enough time. We three rescue dogs think it should be a Scottie that really needs a good home and a second chance. I'm a rescue-OK, scratch that, I'm not the best example :) but Stuart wasn't wanted because his fur wasn't considered perfect. Even a Scottie mix should be considered-they have less health problems in general. Thinking about you and post on your progress. I don't live in the mid-west so I can't scout for you.

  15. Diana, we are with Madi and her mom - here you are comforting all of us! We just love the story of Jazzi's Last Hurrah with teenaged girls - i don't know why, but we imagine them driving a red convertible! We are looking forward to giving tribute to Jazzi on Taco Day! We may even have Taco Tuesday tonight in her honor.

  20. I've thought of you often since I read about the loss of your precious girl. I think because I know all too well how hard losses can be, and when it' comes so unexpectedly, it's even harder. I don't know if you are, but if so, don't doubt or second guess the choices that you made for her--They were ones made out of your love and devotion to her. You and Jazzi had a wonderful life together, I'm hopeful that you are finding comfort in fun stories like the one you shared, and cherishing them and knowing that you will see your spirited girl one day--And what a day that will be!!
