my condolences for your losses. the little ones carve a very special place in our hearts, so deep and so dear. try to remember the good times and the
fun you shared.
over the years we shared our home with three different bunnies who found themselves in need of a place. each of our girls were wonderful, and each
lived far beyond their expected years. when the last girl went it hurt so bad i gave away all the cages and things. i couldn't take that heartbreak
again. i'm just a big mush and just thinking of them makes my eyes leak, as did reading the posts here. except for cat person, but whatever.
Chili is a cinnamon Chow Chow that is the center of life in our home, we don't have children. She is just the cutest, fluffiest little thing, so
sweet and very smart. Chili was rescued from terrible circumstance long ago, horrible people did jail time, that's how bad it was. Some people just
need to burn in hell.
Chili is 11. We try to keep in mind that she is not eternal, that the day will come, but thankfully it's not today.
Anyone who has not known a Chow is missing out. They are an elegant and old breed. This is not the kind of dog that has 'dog breath', slobbers all
over the place, or sticks their nose in your companys crotch when they come to visit.
Chili has a unique structure; she doesn't plod across the floor, she has this regal little gait as if she's wearing high heels. People always stop
and compliment her on her looks when we are out for walks. Some think she looks like a lil bear, others say a lion.
The funniest thing is seeing tough guys, like the big burly garbage pick-up men, who immediately act like little kids when they see her. "whose a
little oobie-boobie? who's a cutie? that's right, you are!" Crack me up, but i keep a straight face and bite my lip. Chili has the power of the
cute. None are immune.
I'm thankful that Chili is in our lives. I really don't know what I'll do without her except cry and probably take up drinking, very hard, and for
a very long time.
