FAREWELL CHANCEY AND DIXIE
My friend, Cherry, has taken in some of our older, special need's Pekes. She has a special touch with them and so much love just pours out of her. Her older dog, Dixie, was a member of the family before any of them came. She was a gentle soul and was between 15 and 18 years old. Cherry has to say good-bye to her last week.
She also had to say good-bye to sweet Chancey, who she adopted from us several years ago. Chancey was an older Peke I got out of a shelter. His tongue had black markings on it and it was so unusual. He was so sweet!
He had trouble getting around and this is how he ate-- he had lost most of his hearing and sight, and had trouble figuring out where he was.
Dixie was the first of Cherry's gang when she began to take in some of our seniors. And just like her love for Dixie, Cherry had incredible love for each one she took in. Some were challenges, had trust issues, were blind, or deaf, and Cherry loved them through their difficulties.
When I had Chancey, he was sitting in front of the fan one day-- it looked like he was going to take off! He loved that fan.
We took a road trip to meet his new mom, Cherry, and he was such a good boy in the car. Cherry was beyond thrilled to get him.
He liked to help her with her emails. Look how beautiful he was.
He had beautiful big eyes-- he had to have surgery on the folds when he was here, and it made his eye more visible than before-- just like a Pekingese figurine. Beautiful!
We are so sorry that Cherry lost two on the same day. It's so hard to say good-bye, but having to say good-bye to two at once is rough. They had a wonderful life with you, Cherry. Thank you for loving them so much and giving them all such a great life. I know Muffin, Tiffany, Weezie, Lovie, Precious, and Clifford will miss their friends. Farewell sweet Dixie and Chancey.
