Hey there everyone. I need to apologize for the blog coming to such a sudden stop, but thank you to all who continued to check in. Many of you may know this already, but I have some very sad news to report.
For those of you who didn't know, Freddie Girl was a real dog, a beautiful dog, my pride and joy. She was almost 14 and a half years old, and she was my miracle dog. She has had a lot of health issues in her lifetime, but being the "little trooper" she was, she overcame most of them. She was a two time cancer survivor and had many various surgeries over the years. After I posted the last blog on April 6th, Freddie Girl got sick with a blood disease that comes on really quick. We hoped and prayed that she could squeak through this one too. She did everything she could, but unfortunately on April 10th, she lost the fight. She was at home on her pillow with me, her favorite toys by her side. She really is Mommie's little angel.
I'd like to thank the real "Dr. Josh" and all our friends at the Animal Hospital for doing everything they could to keep Freddie Girl with us for as long as they did. Thanks also to Dr. Bell and his clinic at our other home for all they did during the first part of Freddie Girl's life. And to our special groomers over the years, thank you for making sure Freddie Girl had very few "bad hair days", and for giving her special care when she didn't really feel like 'having a day at the spa".
Last, but SO not least, thank you to my family, friends and neighbors (friends also), who have shown so much concern and kindness for Freddie Girl and me. I honestly don't know what I would have done without all of you. It is such a blessing to be surrounded by so many people that loved Freddie Girl too, and that know she was more than "just a dog" to her daddy and me...she was my baby, my best friend, my "little sweetie-pie".
Freddie Girl had a lot of stories she wanted me to tell, so in her honor, the blog, comic strip, cards and future plans will keep her living on. I know it would make Freddie Girl's heart happy and tail wag to know that her life was continuing on in print. You will have to bear with me a little though, Freddie Girl always had to approve all my drawings with her "nose of approval". For Freddie Girl, I promise to do my best to share all the humor and sheer joy that she gave me, with all of you.
It was truly a blessing and a privilege to have been Freddie Girl's mommie for nearly 14 and a half years. I miss her terribly....but HER LOVE LIVES ON!
