Condolences to The Pink Superhero [More:]
Sadly, Twinkie, her chihuahua, friend of MeCha, biter of many of us, has crossed the Rainbow Bridge and the age of eleven-and-a-half.
Oh, so sorry to hear-- we so enjoyed her visit to our old porch.

Goodbye little Twinkie. Condolences TPS.

Noooooooo. So sorry, TPS. Also sorry I never got nipped by Twinkie.

If a Dog Heaven exists, I'm sure Twinkie will be nipping at the heels of my own beloved Lab/Collie/mix Lollypop (and Lolly will enjoy it). Condolences for now, but let the mourning end soon and New Puppy hunt begin. (And if you want to keep up a consistent 'Hostess snack cake' theme, may I suggest the name "DingDong"?)

Awwww. So very sorry to hear your little fur-baby is gone. There's nothing else like the love shared with a pet. Hugs.

Ach. I slap you compassionately on the shoulder.

(We Frisian Dutch are not big huggers like US americans. But that doesn't mean we're cold hearted. :-) )

Oh no! You were such a good caretaker of that tiny terror, TPS, and Twinkie was lucky to have you.
Thinking of you.

Thanks, all. It was a sad day- when we got up she was struggling to breath, and after hours at the emergency vet, she was diagnosed with heart failure. She was so distressed, we knew it was the right decision to let her go. We were all already scheduled to start vacation (we are in Ocean City NJ this week) so weirdly the timing was very good. It'll be so quiet in the house without her- and who will pick up all the food the kids drop?!? How do people without dogs clean their floors, anyway? Maybe I can get the cat to do that. Twinkie was my first baby and she will be missed. They are sprinkling her ashes at a nearby pet cemetery. They also made a paw print memorial for me, which will be nice to have.

Wishing you all the fond memories (and stories) of Twinkie to see you through this very sad time. I am so sorry for this loss to your family.
