Manny Boy,

You were a very special dog. I used to say you did not even have to like dogs to love Manny. He was affectionate and loving and very energtic.

He was an adventure dog. He walked to the top of a mountain and ran at the beach. He loved to camp. You would find him snuggled up in his chair or inside when the sun set.

I remember you when we got you. No hair, full of fleas and ever so grateful to be loved. You used to 'ba-ba' to relax. Échewing holes in towels and blankets like a puppy.

We will never forget you little man. May you be at peace.

Jesse Bear. You came to your forever home in April of '98 and we became best friends. You were always there when I got up in the morning and when I came home at night, patiently waiting to greet me and tell me about your day. We always enjoyed each other's company and friendship; we were like brothers, always working together. You always knew how to put a smile on my face and keep me company when times were good or sad. And you were very good with Mom and Dad, Kathy and Daniel, Smiley, Cinder, Bonus B, Molly, Mickey, Lucy and everyone else. Also you are very important to your little brother, Budders. You taught him how to be a true dachshund in every sense of the word! Jesse, you were the anchor in my life and in Budder's life, and nothing can top that experience we shared together. Little Bear, we love you beyond what words can describe, you touched our lives in so many wonderful ways that I can't even count them all. You went to the Bridge in my arms in September '09 and already we miss you more than you can imagine. I will meet you at the Bridge and we can all be together again for eternity as a family.

Love Rick and Budders

Little Bit Prince - September 2009, 5 years, 3 months old


Little Bit, I was given you on my birthday in 2004. When I first saw you, you were so tiny! I could hold you in the palm of my left hand and your entire length would fit there from the tip of your cute little nose to the tip of your waggley tail! When I saw this, I thought to myself, 'What a little bit of dog!', then I smiled, because you were my little bit of dog. Later in the car on our way home, you may remember that Mama asked me what I was going to name you and I said that I couldn't think of anything but Doodlebug and Little Bit and so I chose the name Little Bit and it was perfect for you!

You had the cutest personality! I loved your mischief! You were so cute and sweet and cuddly! I loved to cuddle you and stroke you and talk to you. I remember that you liked to listen to whatever I said. I remember that you would cock your head to the right as you listened intently to what I said. I remember, too, when I went to the office to read email and you'd call me to come back and I'd come around the corner from the dining room and there you'd be right by the Christmas tree box with your head cocked to the right with a look in your eyes that said, 'Oh, so that's where you are!'. I will always remember that. It was one of the things that you did that I loved to see. I can still see you doing that in my heart. I know now that you are happy and pain free and that you have found Rascal and I know that you and he are having a fine time running and playing and play wresting like the two of you used to love to do.

I will always love and miss you, my darling girl.

I will always treasure the time that we had together. I will not say that it was enough time. It wasn't and it never would have been. I am so sorry that you had to go last September, but I know that you wanted to go and even though it broke my heart to have the vet put you to sleep I knew in my heart that this was the kindest thing that I could do for you, my darling because you were suffering so and I could see in your eyes that you wanted me to let you go and I did even though it was the hardest thing that I have ever had to do. I know now that I did the right thing and I gave you a great gift - freedom from pain. I am glad that you are in a better place than here even though being here is nice. I know that I will see you when I get to heaven, but it isn't my time to go there yet. I'm looking forward to seeing you again. I miss you so much, Little Bit. I love you and I cherish you and also I cherish the times that we had together and I'm glad that I made your picture. It is now on my computer so that I see your sweet face and those beautiful eyes of yours every time I turn on the computer. I have also printed out your picture so that I can put it in a frame here in the office. Until I see you again, good bye my sweet Little Bit.
