Tigger was adopted in three visits to the Greenville SC dog and cat adoption shelter near my home in Greer South Caroline. She was my one and only lap dog. I would put her on my knees while i was on the computer and she fall to sleep. What a wonderful little dog she was for me because i was living alone with occasional visits from my daughters. Although my daughters were born in Denver, they moved to SC with there mother and step dad. I swore that I would stay in there lives and when I retired with enough money I followed them to the east coast to be in “my girls” lives. Tigger was called Baby in the shelter but I kept her name and added Tigger as in Tigger baby. The Tigger came from Tigger the tiger in A A Milne’s books of Winnie the Poo. Tigger was the perfect name because she would bounce around and run run run. Tigger was a terrier and chi mix. Yes she would bark a great deal. When she bolted from the house , she would run across the lawns in the neighborhood. It took a long time to catch her but it was worth running. I had to go get her in my P/U truck at times. She would eventually always come to me.
She was put down a few years after arriving in Oregon. She had a wounder Veterinarian with Dr. Debbie Teagarden here in Medford. I decided to live out my life in Oregon since I lived here before and the country is beautiful. My youngest daughter was studying for her Masters degree at OSU and I settled in Medford for health reasons.
I shall always remember Tigger baby as she was. But i like to say as she is because she IS always in my heart.
A donation was made in Tigger Baby's memory and the memorial was created on April 19, 2017.
