From the day she jumped into our lives she drew near to share hearts w/us. She was my doppelganger. There is that one "kin" to us; synced to our souls; a trust offered from both sides. My Charmie-grrrl. I feel the shape of her head in the palm of my hand as if I'd stroked her just now. This memorial page is for Missy Charmin and all the cool critters who have shared our home and brightened so many of our days. If we've been in the least wise, we've learned from them. As the little boy comforting his parents on losing the family pet explained, "pets don't live as long as we do because they get Perfect quicker than people and get to go to Heaven sooner!"
Some of our 'Perfects' then and now: Bugs, Pippi, PeeWee, Shadow, Shadow II, Frosty, Tinker, Ginger Ale, Skipper, Rascal, Coco, Sophie So-So, Shannah, Beau, MicMac, Fric 'n Frac, Blip, Widget, Sport, Rio, Dixie, Shadow, Dumpey, Barney, Hercimo, Ernie, Tombo, Pixie, Bumper, Timeout, Tombo, Freeway, Pippi, Bugs, Major, Scooter, Pixie, Nite-Nite, Mandy, Kiki, Puppycat, Charmie...
Eskie Charmin Appears in Dog Fancy
May 1999: When Dog Fancy decided to do an article on senior dogs, they found Eskie Charmin's story on the Senior Dogs Project website. They contacted Charmin's mom and featured a photo of Charmie and her mom, and notes in their May 1999 issue: "Love extended her life," Charmin's mom says. "She had to give it as much as receive it to be happy. Dogs (indeed all pets) extend our lives if the truth be known." We commend Ellen Kanner, the author of "Turn Back Time", for the compassion expressed and information presented in her article.
"Many who have dedicated their life to love can tell us less about the subject than a child who lost his dog yesterday."
-- Thornton Wilder
"ANIMALS... in a world far older than ours, finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, live by voices we shall never hear".
-- Henry Beston 1928
