I had 16 wonderful years with Cherub. She was a wedding present to me from my husband. While she could have a mind of own, she always seemed to know when I needed someone. I have 2 other dogs and they are larger dogs. But little Cherub always made sure they knew she was the alpha dog of all 3 of them. While I still have 2 other dogs with me, I still feel a huge emptiness in my heart and home.
One of the fondest memories that I have of Cherub is my husband got one of those battery powered weasel balls. Cherub took it over right away. She would chase that thing until she was all but ready to drop. In fact, many times either my husband or I would have to take it up so she would get some rest.
Letting go of Cherub was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I miss so many things about her like sleeping in my room, seeing her at the door when I would come in, her getting under my feet wanting me to pet her, begging for a treat, her following me around the house, etc. For her to have been such a little dog she made a huge impact in my life and heart. I pray she is at peace and she knows how much I love her. I hope we will see each other again. I truly miss my baby angel.
