I'am nothing without my Dixie,who has been the love of my life for the past 9 years. A little terrier came into my life when a good friend said to me one day 'You need a dog'. I wasn't sure if I wanted a dog and what kind do I want & where do I look, ect. I called around and first I decided I wanted a girl. Then I want one who has never been with another dog,nor ever had to go ? I first thought no I want to pick her out but, I know also I wouldn't be able to walk out with just 1. I loved her little black smooth coat terrier and also several others she had so she had a good idea of what I would like. She called me and said she found one in a shelter and she went ahead a got her and if for any reason I didn't want her,she would take her because the shelter was going to put her to sleep. I took one look at this little ball of energy running around and picked her up and my friends granddaughter said to call her Wynn Dixie. Well, Dixie stuck. Dixie came home and the next day we were up getting blood work,x-rays,checkups, anything she needed. When the word 'All Clear' came back, Dixie was home. Toys, walks at the park, walks at the school, escaping out the door and running down the drive way for me to get the car out and to follow her to make sure she was ok, that became her new game until a fence was put up and no more of following behind until she decided to get into the car only to find out when getting back home meant having to get a bath and lots of kisses because she didn't get hurt and she was home safe. Dixie was beside me threw all of my illnesses, stayed inside when she wanted out to play but I had to mow the yard. She was afraid of storms and we would get under the 'blanky' when we had thunder storms. Dixie is the love of my life and tomorrow I may have to kiss her one last time as she goes to sleep because of her serious illness after 5 months of shots,,pills and yesterday a blood transfusion . My baby girl is very sick. Her Dr. has ran every test,every scan,every and anything thing any specialist said to rerun,re check. She has had 6 Dr's and heart monitors to try to save her. I'am a mother of 3 grown adult children that I dearly love and they too love Dixie. They knew that if they were not with me,then Dixie is there which meant everything will be all right. I would give my life freely for Dixie to be well and to to able to run and catch a ball,as she would take one of her balls that squeaks and would jump up squeaking it to get me to get her some chicken or sweet potato, or carrots or play time out side. Dixie is the love of my life and my heart is shattered to think she's not beside me tonight but at the hospital and I'am waiting again for new blood work to come back to see again the the report says. Dixie is the love of my life and brought life back to me. Today is May 9,2013. My baby girl, my partner in life, my best friend, my honey bunny Dixie, Died yesterday May 8,2013 at 4:30 p.m. She will be buried today in her yard along side her sister cat, Molly Ann and brother cat Kid Rock.
