A tribute to Blossom *1993 ~ 2011*
It is with great sadness that I share with you all our dear old girl, "Blosssom" passed away Wednesday morning. She will be greatly missed by us all but mostly by her companion Holly.
Sweetie was too upset to post this, as she misses her little guard dog very much.
Blossom lived a very, very long and adventurous life, filled with many wonderful experience and was an endless bundle of joy to many, many people and furry friends alike.
I would like to share two of my lasting memories of Blossom's quirky personality. When greeted by Blossom she would come bounding up and then flip over onto her back, tummy in the air. You would think she was after a tummy rub, but oh, no - not for Blossom, this was her strange way of just saying "hello" as she would proceed to arch her back so the top of her head was firmly pressed into the ground and her paws were wildly waving at you in the air! My other lasting memory is of a frustrated Blossom annoyed that anyone dare to stare at her while eating, this was a major "no-no" and the height of rudeness in her book!!!!! Should she catch you just glancing in her general direction once her food dish was served, well, she would promptly back away, circle her food twice (in reverse) then try to "bury" it over using her nose against the floor!?! This is how I will always remember my dear Blossom! Oh and chasing anything with feathers, of course!
Now a few words from my little 7 yo girl .....
Hi, I would like to share my best time with Blossom. When I used to play with Blossom, my favourite thing to do was blow on her face. When I did this, she would cover her eyes with her paws and then after she would jump up. Then she would crouch down, with her bottom in the air, daring me to do it again. She would make me laugh and smile when we played this game. I am very sad my little friend has passed away and will miss her furry face "furry" much. And, Blossom, if you are listening to this i love you very much, "bubble-pops" (from Leilani)
We take some comfort knowing she is up there in doggy heaven with her old friend "Malibu" finally accepting her angel wings, at peace and no longer suffering. We know she is able to watch over us all and her Kingdom, our little Guardian Angel-Pup and is keeping everyone safe.
