randyvs. I read your thread last night. Just could not reply then. I read it and had a good cry, yea a big ole grown man crying. But I have to admit
the crying was not for your little love, It was for mine I had to lay to rest two years ago. He too was a weenie dog, he was my friend for 16 short
years. The last two he spent in a wheelchair. One day he was fine, the next day he could not use his back legs.
Faced with puttting him down, I at that time could not do it. I looked at doggie wheelchairs and was shocked at the prices. So being me, I built him
one over the next two days. He would lay and watch me work on it, I think he knew it was for him. When I finished, I put him in it and it was like he
knew what to do. He took off across the house like he had been in it for all his life. I swear i could see him smile.
I knew the day would come . I knew one day he would let me know " Nows the time" That day he did'nt want to get up, he did not want to be in "Dan" ( I
named the wheelchair , Lt Dan from Forrest Gump fame.) Because it was his "Magic Legs" He looked at me and I knew he was tired and ready to leave me.
We had a meal of his favorite food, bacon. I let him eat all he wanted. Then we went and when I came home. I was alone. He was gone. I buried my
friend in my side yard, Laid him to rest in his own bed. I still tear up over that ole dog.
Sometimes I think I can hear him say" Dont cry for me old friend, for one day we will be together again where we can run,laugh, & play. Simply put "
Scrappy was my friend" and I miss him. I have a big black & white Manx cat that was his friend too. THat cat to this day still goes out to that grave
everyday. He'll circle it a time or two then go on with his day. I still have Lt Dan, I find it hard to throw it away.
