My Precious Baby
Here it goes, I hope I can do this without crying so hard……………. After 4 miscarriages and still not pregnant my cousin had called me and said I can’t take care of my little dog (her name was “Angel” at the time)and its not fair for her, were not home for 10 hours a day.
Would you by chance want her………. I didn’t think twice and jumped in my car and picked her up. Angel and I drove home and she rested on my lap, as I petted her.
I knew this was the start of a loving relationship and that she would be my baby.
My life changed, everything seemed better brighter because of her. I renamed her Lalique and fell completely in love with her.
I received her the month of May and had a baby girl the following month of May. I now have 2 girls who grew up with lalique and loved her infinitely.
My Precious yorkie was the most incredible little being. I groomed her and cooked (special meals for her every night) for her with all my heart.
I loved every minute of it, she was my 1st. born. Most of her life was in my arms kissing and loving her continuously.
She prepared me for motherhood, how to care for,love and nurture another little being. Her clothes……….. sweaters, t-shirts and coats. Oh gosh the little bows……..
You see she was my Baby! She slept with me, snuggled and followed me around, until her last breath. She was a big part of my life and my family’s.
In March 2009 my Precious baby was diagnosed with kidney failure. I did the IV fluids everyday 100 cc’s until her last day December 12, 2009.
That terrible fateful day…… She was living for me but her poor little body was dying. Simply wasting away in spite all that, I had tried to do whatever I could to save my baby.
In my simple mind I really believed that if I loved her enough, cared for her, bathed her,groomed her myself….. That would be enough to eliminate germs, infection and disease.
In the end the only thing that kept us together was LOVE, the love we shared for each other was incredible. Her eyes always on me and mine on her……….
That fateful day, her breathing had changed and the toxins from the dreadful disease was permeating through her skin.
Her tongue was white and her weighed less than 2 lbs, she had weighed 8 lbs, 8 months prior. The Doctor wanted me to let him know whengums , her breathe smelled of a strong amonia (Kidney disease breaks down your organs and fills your body with poison).
December 12,2009, I knew this was the morning……. the day that my Precious Baby would leave me and be free from pain.
We took her (Lalique)to the Veterinarian Hospital and the Office staff knew this was going to be very difficult for me. Up until the end she was trying to hang on and I was ready (to put her down). I told my Precious baby how much I loved her and that I will love her forever.
I held her tight and hugged her so……… this by far was very difficult……….. knowing that this would be the last time I would hug her, smell her, kiss her and look into her eyes and tell her I LOVE YOU MY PRECIOUS BABY.
She was part of my life, my children’s our family. She completed us as a family………… She is my Angel the name she originally started her life with……
She will live forever in my heart and mind. Until we meet again, fly high, fly high my Precious Baby! She lived 16 1/2 years of age, the best years of my life.
