Hello all my pupfwiends, this is Asta,I'm not going to be here next week..I just found out we have to go to New Hamster(I hope I'll meet a lot of Fufu and Girlgirl's welatives, geez, a whole state named after them, pwetty good no?)
but today this posting is not about me..it's sad and happy at the same time. I'll xplain:My Mommy has been vewy sad this week cause she kept wemembewing that this was he little Nora's last week last year...even though I'm here and I know she loves me LOTS, this was weally hawd, so I thought we should do a stowy about NOra and let all of you hear about her,as a twibute and to cheer my Mommy up...xept when she helped me do this, she kept cwying.....
many many yeaws ago my Daddy and Mommy had a wonderful WFT called Nikki..he was 12 years old at the time,and Mommy really wanted to get him a little sister to keep him young..she was surprised by Daddy for their 20th wedding anniversary with another litte foxy. She was born on their anniversary day, and they named her NORA. She was the runt of her litter and stayed small and perfect always..I hear she was the most agile,fun sweet girl. She made the eventual loss of Nikki from old age beawable,and gave enouwmous joy to my 'rents. The sad part is , that just one year ago she became vewy sick and crossed over the wainbow bwidge...my 'rents said they couldn't go through such pain again, so they were never ever going to get another doggy.....but guess what, here I am. Mommy says I was pawsonally picked by Nora to be sent to them..that's why my official name is AstaGift from Heaven....I want to show you some pictures of Nora, fwom her too short life, I hope you all can see how wonderful she was. I hope she and Nikki awe playing with Fufu and all the other pwecious doggies who have cwossed over the wainbow bwidge.. I'll let Mommi tell you a little about her......
This was Nora's birth announcement.
Nora was the best escape artist in the world,even after we put a heavy sheet of wood on top of this playpen,she managed to climb up, push it aside, and leap without fear into the world
She met Nikki who could barely see by then, but they played and kissed,and had a great time..occasionally ,he would get fed up with her puppy antics,but it was true love on both their partsshe was a little ham and loved to pose for the camera
that summer she was well known in every outdoor restaurant and cafe in our neighborhood
she kept Nikki on his toes and wouldn't take no for an answer
she had to explore everything in ,and out of sight, she was a very mischievous little girl pup
Daddy's little girl all dressed for a party with her bow and pearls
The innocent look was a specialty,even when she ate through the wall to the neighbor's apartmentI made her her own passport
she had official stamps in it from her travels
in those days we traveled a lot more, and she always came with us
she delighted us all with her antics,here proving her terrier stubbornness and athleticism with her human sister
she was my muse and participated in many of my art shows
Nora wasn't very good with other doggies, but did she ever love us and our friends..she sat in a chair as soon as I would set the table for a dinner party and behaved like one of the more polite guests
In March of last year,we had a belated New Years party with all our friends and loved ones to celebrate my G's recovery from cancer surgery...Nora was still the life of the party...she was there for us throughout our most horrible moments of fear
This is one of the last pictures of our sweet NORA ,she became ill, so suddenly, and we were helpless as we watched her fade away....she'll always be with us ......................love never dies
Good night sweet sweet Nora ..we'll never forget you
