I’m Missie, guest dogger blogger for my mom’s blog, Dangerous Cupcakes. I’m a special Yorkie…for real, I have special needs but you wouldn’t know it at all if you watched me run around the house rolling like a crazy pup with a squeaky toy in my mouth, or as I stare out the sliding door plotting how I will chase all the birds out of my back yard.
You can find me on Instagram at @MissietheYorkie, or with the hashtag, #MissietheYorkie, but I’ll keep you in the loop here on my pampered life as a lapdog of a work-at-home mom.
UPDATE OCTOBER 2019
This is Missie’s mom here. Missie is now playing up in Heaven with her brother, Charlie. Missie’s remaining kidney worked hard for a long time, trying to do the work of two, but eventually it gave out. Missie fought hard, tolerating daily hydration sessions via IV, which her dad and I did on our kitchen table, on top of a soft blanket, hugging her tight.
I still cry frequently at the loss of my precious, but she taught us so much. She changed us into diehard dog people, and while we don’t have another dog yet, we will. She will never be replaced, but we will honor her by giving all the love she brought out to another pup who needs it. I swear I still hear her now and then, a little whimper or yip, and it makes me smile.
In fact, as I type this, tears are flowing. I miss this little girl so much, it’s painful, but she crossed the Rainbow Bridge in my arms, with dad right next to us. She could no longer see a thing, and confusion was setting in, making it hard for her to get around at all. She hadn’t eaten in days, and she was clearly telling us that it was time. We honored her and while it was so difficult, she didn’t deserve to remain in pain.
To Missie the Yorkie, your photos and stories will remain live here on Dangerous Cupcake Lifestyle for the duration. You will never, ever be forgotten.
