**Thank you Sherri with all my heart for sponsoring my precious furbaby.**
Snookie is so sadly missed and always in my heart until she is in my arms again. I know my sweet baby will be in Heaven waiting for me. Snookie was my constant companion and was loved so much. I spoiled her to a fault and I thought of her as my child, my precious furchild. I know that many people would say to get over it that she was only a dog. But she was my baby and I will always love her.
Those eyes of hers really thrilled my soul and it was love at first sight. Oh how I miss those eyes that had the most wonderful look of love in them. She would gaze into my eyes and it was like looking into her soul the look said she loved me more than anything in this world. She was the most wonderful loving girl and the best Valentine's Day gift I could have ever received.
From the time she started playing with toys Snookie would take both the squeaky and stuffed ones and ram them into the back of my legs as I walked. I thought it was one of the most thrilling things in the world. She was like a shadow and wherever I was or went there she was too.
Snookie loved long walks and playing ball and tug of war. She loved to ride in the basket of my 3 wheel bicycle. We went on Paddle Boat rides and she loved it. Most of the time she would bring the toy back to me but now and then she would keep it just out of reach. Sometimes Snookie could be quite the tease and then she would grin at me. Yes, many dogs do grin and she grinned a lot.
When Snookie fell ill and had to go into the hospital it broke my heart. I had never been away from her before. Before that she struggled for almost 11 months off and on getting sick then getting well again, until she could fight no more. When she first got sick we ran her to many vets seeking to hear the words I wanted to hear.
I did not want to believe she would die and that she had Cancer and Cushings Disease. All the vets said there was nothing they could do for her. She then got diabetes and was hypersensitive to the insulin. Her pancreas shut down and Snookie could not fight any longer.
Part of my heart died when she passed away on December 26, 2004 at 1:48 pm. I could not bear to see her suffer as I loved her more than anything in this world. On the 27th when the vet's office was going to be open I was going to give Snookie the most loving gift I could. Yet in her love for me she gave me the gift of not having to do that last act, she left this world at home.
Now I wait to join her in Heaven some people believe fur babies will not go to Heaven. But I know God loves us and He loves what we love and she was and is part of my heart and soul so I am going to believe with all of my heart that she will be there to greet me and I will embrace her once again.
Until then I will go on loving her with all my heart and soul for she is part of me and always will be. I would give anything, do anything, for one more look into those loving eyes of my darling little girl. But for now I will always have wonderful memories of her until I embrace her once again on Streets of Gold in Heaven. I love you now, always, and forever my sweet Snookie Cookie. Thank you Snookie for the best years of my life.
My furbabies are now with My Precious Mother 1917-1997 and My Loving Dad 1921-2006
If I don't get my healing my little Snookie will soon be with her mama Ann Howard
I wrote this poem for my darling Snookie
If You Could See Into My Soul
Were there but a window looking into my broken soul
You would see that everything there is no longer whole.
There would be a picture of this woman's world torn apart
And you would see all the pieces of my lonely broken heart.
You would see memories of me holding my sweet girl so tight
and how I long for Snookie throughout the long weary night.
You'd hear my voice calling out my sweet Snookie's name
You'd view my broken soul and know I'd never be the same.
In a window of the past you'd see Snookie at her best
taking walks, running and playing and she and I at rest.
You would see the love and joy she brought into my life
You'd see how she made my life easier in this world of strife.
You'd see how Snookie curled upon my lap so content
You'd see how much to each other our love meant.
Those are the days my heart, body, soul and mind crave
they are the memories I, Ann, will carry to my grave.
