There are some moments in life when you just know God has placed an angel in fur here on earth to watch over loved ones. Allie was sent to live with my best friend’s parents when she was just a couple of years old and quickly became one of the family. Her bright, inquisitive eyes took in the world around her and there wasn’t much that got past her.
You can see Allie took her guard dog role seriously! No stray pair of shoes was going to get past HER keen sense of smell! She might even teach those shoes a lesson or two and chew on them just for fun!
Allie had a heart of gold and was the biggest “lap dog” I’ve ever seen. In Allie’s mind she must have been a Chihuahua for all the snuggling and cuddling she would love to do when her family was around. She loved being in the middle of things and Christmas was a blast as she tried to wrestle new chew toys away from her buddy Max. I believe there must be a special place in heaven for spirits like Allie where she can roam free among the clover and lie in the sunshine after a good day’s run.
Goodbye dear Allie...what a faithful friend to the end you turned out to be. God sure picked the perfect companion when he picked you. May your new life be a peaceful one and I know you will be waiting for us to visit one day…we just need to remember to bring along some chew toys...
