Widget came to us on her way to euthanasia September 2009. As was her nature, she skipped the part she didn’t like about that, and agreed to come home with us. There was no joy in her for this; she just wanted to check her alternatives. At 7 pounds, she was a fierce little warrior Chi/Pug/Corgi. the product of designer breeding, who didn’t turn out quite right. He wee jutting jaw was a spotlight for her personality. She had already been adopted 3 times, and was deemed not to be adoptable. But, I fell in love immediately – what can I say. Fast forward to March 2017. Over the years Widget learned to love all of us, while insisting on running the house. Three other rescue pups were in place for her to herd and control. She woke up on that March morning, burrowing under the covers and pillows, (on her way to China) tail wagging and loving all over us. Then she coughed, and kept coughing. We took her to her vet, and learned she had a collapsed trachea. We returned home with her in my arms and meds, but to no avail. A week later I held her in my arms once again, cooing and loving her as the doctor helped her over the Rainbow Bridge. Widget forever changed my life. My life is forever changed without her. She lies in our garden, her favorite place to be. My sweet baby girl, I will always miss you.
A donation was made in Widget's memory and the memorial was created on November 30, 2017.
