Last July, the Scottie News published a tribute to Teresa and family’s beloved Tallulah.
Sadly, Teresa — who said that “some of the remarks we received on that tribute really warmed my heart” — has lost another cherished dog in March. She writes:
Last week, we lost the second of our three girls, Taffy. She was 15.5 and really slowing down, but the end was very sudden. After she suffered two grand mal seizures in three hours, our wonderful vet met us in his office in the middle of the night to help Taffy over the bridge.
She was the dowager queen of our household, the rescue who came from a puppy mill to enrich our lives. I think of her as the embodiment of love and patience overcoming the worst start possible to a life. From the day we met her, she melted into our touch. She was a “leaner,” as if she could not have enough human contact, and the only one of our three with a true Scottie “a-rooooo.”
She’s in the middle of the picture above just as she plopped herself in the middle of our lives and hearts. Our blondies are gone and missed so very much. We are blessed that our Ruby-girl, at 12, is in great health, and praying it stays that way for a long time.
