No ~ I am still and always will be "KeyWee" and I will wear the name proudly. But the reason for me being KeyWee has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. My little gray puffball has gone on to greatness. I always believed she came back just for me anyway, and she did a damn good job of it. She was my heart and I will miss her SO much, but that is selfishness on my part. Her almost 18 year old body was just plain wore out.
Anyone who tells you how quick, easy and painless this will be is full of baloney. It was the hardest two seconds of my life. At less than four pounds, she was gone in an instant. But the week of preparing myself mentally and emotionally is something I don't care to repeat ~ and I will HAVE to ~ Sindee is over 16 and heading in the same direction Give me strength.
So I feel like I have bled out through the eyes today. But I promised I wouldn't let her go it alone and I fulfilled that last promise. I wouldn't trade the years we had together for anything, even if I had known it would end like this.
ETA ~ KeyWee was my half Yorkie half tea cup poodle. You can see her picture in the GG photo gallery "Pets" forum. Scroll down to the thread "The Real Keywee". Hey, Keeyers, hope you found your "bunny".

I feel your grief. We lost April, our Yorkie a couple months ago and I still get chocked up when I think about her. I believe that when we die, we will be reunited with all of our loved ones including our pets. Bill Mitchell

I too am sorry over your lost. Those of us who devote our time to caring for animals will see them again. We'll cross Rainbow bridge & they will be there.My kids tell me, it will take me a long time to cross that bridge as many animals I've cared for. My heart aches for you.Saying a special prayer for you, hugs.Diane
