Default Miss Moneypenny and me...

She's gone for three and a half years now, but I remain so grateful for the 16+ she was with us. Our spirited, feisty, strong-willed, clownish Miss Moneypenny was a once-in-a-lifetime dog. She lived with such vigor, ever full of herself and independent but also lavish in bestowing her affection. Staying in motion was her thing...throw the ball, throw the ball, THROW THE BALL!!!!!!!!! She thought life was a ball, and she made it so for us. Some bristled when told her breed; Rat Terrier, but it always made me grin. I saw her as a Really Amazing Terrier. She was that, and so much more! Thoughts of her flooded my mind yesterday when a repairman, who hadn't been to our home for a few years, came in expecting to see her. He always carries dog biscuits on him and while he was truly sad to find Penny was no longer with us, he was more than pleased to meet and treat Chagall.

I love the expression on her face - "I've stayed still for long enough - when are you going to put the camera down so we can play?!"

She was beautiful! We had a JRT named "Stogy" (he was shortlegged and looked like a cigar). He was all about his ball! She reminds me of him. Awesome dog!!! Only lived to 11 years, lost him to pancreatic cancer. How awesome that she got to spend her life with you!

Thank you for that sweet post. As I wipe the tear from my eye. My Martini has been gone for 18 years and the tears still come when I talk about her. I still believe that she was an angel dressed in poodle fur. My Rossi has been gone for 10 months and 3weeks. Losing her was exceptionally hard as she came into my life at the time I had to place my son for adoption. I MISS THEM BOTH TERRIBLY. But I know that they are just a memory away, and most days that helps.
I love rat terriers. My neighbor growing up had one named suzie. She was the sweetest thing. I have a Parsons jack and she is ornery as all get out. Worse than any toddler could ever be lol. Pair that with my boy now, and I am a very busy Mom. Can you say MESSS ! LOL They are both to smart for their own good.

Loss is hard, and even harder when we lose a piece of our heart. I have grown up with dogs all my life, but it wasn't until I got into college that I had one of my own. When she passed away last year I felt like my heart had been ripped out. She was a ShihTzu Chihuahua mix... She looked like Gizmo and Yoda had a puppy... LOL, I still think about her.

I think that when they cross our mind out of the blue, it is when they are looking down from puppy clouds to check on us.

Penny loos like she was a delight, and had a wonderful personality. What a cutie!

I still think about my Lila every day even though she passed away a year ago and I have 4 poodles. They are always with us.

Chagall,

Thank you so much for your post and lovely photo. There is a beautiful irony here. Miss Moneypenny wanted you to "throw the ball, throw the ball, THROW THE BALL!!!!!!!!!" To give.

Your Chagall wants you to "be," to come to bed: "An invitation to Bed." He wants you to receive. What a poodle. HerdingStdPoodle

You created the happiest keepsake of a thought for me by saying what you did, thank you so much! I will hold onto your words like a mantra, and smile every time they come to mind.

Miss Moneypenney looks like she had a ton of personality. My niece has two rat terriers and they are great dogs. I have to brace myself to read these threads as I know how hard it is to lose them. Even though 3 1/2 years has passed I am sure you think of her often. I found a tuft of hair of Zack while cleaning the basement and cried. Funny how the things that use to bug me (Zack was a hairy beast) I now cherish.
