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.
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.
