True Blue Friend - My Jazzie girl
There is no more true blue friend than my Jazzie girl. So I thought this might be fitting for the
Impression Obsession True Blue challenge. This is a challenge for me to write this. Go check out the other amazing and not so sappy postings at the Impression Obsession challenge
God gave me my Jazzie girl to be my best friend for five years. She was there for so many hardships that life had scheduled for me during that time. She always listened to me, comforted me, never complained and loved me unconditionally. Many of you know she had Cushings disease for over a year, and then in December she got a respiratory infection which set in diabetes. I spent most of my savings to save her. It was worth every penny I spent to see how happy she was for the last two months of her life. She began playing with her toys again, begging for her special doggie cookies, and playing tug of war with the puppy. Two weeks ago, I came from work and she was in deep distress. I chose to let her go in peace. It took me awhile to write this, but I am comfortable with my choice, and am glad that God gave her to me for those few precious years. I planted morning glories in the back yard in her honor, they just started popping up along the fence. When I look at those purple flowers, they will remind me of my Jazzie. I will always remember you my Jazzie girl... you were my best friend, I hope you find lots of stuffed animals with squeekies in Doggie Heaven. Shred them to your hearts desire and get that squeeker! Everytime, I see stuffed animal stuffing or a "UN" stuffed animal, I will think of you my sweet girl. You loved those things best when they were empty! Photos of her show how special she was to me... above with her little sister Bugsie, below with me and her cousin Sassy, and on my lawn chair in the desert where she sat with me while the boys rode their motorcycles. I knew that no matter where I was, or what I was doing, I could look down and she would be there. I still look for her sweet face.
