Today is 90 days since I last rubbed Taterbug's belly. I had her for about 14 years, from the time she was just 4 weeks old. She was a brindle chihuahua. I called her, "little mean". She was so loved and had always been healthy. After we lost CoCo on April 3rd, I told my wife that Taterbug was getting old and I hoped she would make it a few more years as she had always been healthy. She was a little nippy at times, but that is how chihuahua's are. She could be hard-headed and independent. But that was part of her personality. She could also be the most loving little companion ever. She passed in my arms from CHF on June 6, 2010. I buried her right next to CoCo in the back yard. I miss her and lover her so much. She was so much a part of our lives. She loved to ride in a car, was ready to go anytime she heard the word, "GO", was very dainty in her toilet habits, and was the best alarm ever. She knew whenever anyone was approaching our house. She would "holler" at me when I came in from work so that I would come and see her. She had beautiful eyes and a beautiful sleek coat. She was always so prim and prissy, just like a little Princess. I miss her terribly and look forward to rejoining her in Paradise. She meant so much to us. She literally watched my kids grow up. She passed in my arms, only after I told her she could go if she was tired. I miss her so much. Anyway, these anniversaries tend to make me reflect a lot about my lost little ones. I just had to share this with you all.

Oh Eddie, my Dear Friend... We have had quite the Summer, Eh? I've always loved Taterbug's name!!! She is playing with 'Manda at the Bridge, as we speak. Tomorrow is 'Manda's 8 week Bridge Day. Pooh Bear was so big, compared to Taterbug...that, when they play, 'Manda could give her a ride on her broad back! Oh....the fun they are having....Always remembering our Girls, CoCo..and my Kitties, Abercrombie and Fitch. Love to you from, Debbie..The Dude and Baby Willow

Taterbug had the best daddy in the world!! Your tribute to her is so sweet! The anniversary dates do cause us to stop and think about our babies and how much love they brought into our lives. They live on in our memories and we can't wait to see them again!!

Thank you Debbie. Taterbug was the one that I had the longest. She went through a lot with us over the years. She was the one constant that was always there. Always wanting to be with us, and always, always, loving us. She could be contrary as she aged but that was just her. She was absolutely beautiful and it breaks my heart to think of life without her and CoCo.

Oh Eddie, it doesn't seem like it's been 3 months already. I know little Taterbug is deep in your heart and soul and always will be. Bless her little hard-headed and independent heart! Our chihuahuas are just the best, aren't they? There's no other breed like them. They have huge hearts and such fierce loyalty and devotion and they really think they are big bad dogs.
Your tribute to her is so sweet and brings a tear to my eye. I know how much she meant to you and your wife and I sent alot of prayers out for her a few months ago. I was, and still am, so very sorry you lost her. My new addition loves when I call him Taterbug, which is most of the time. He nips at my face when he's in my lap and I say "Taterbug". It is so funny. God bless you Eddie and your wife. I know that you are the best parents any dogs could ever have. I feel for you and know how much you hurt missing your babies. It has been one of those days for me today, too. Those pawprints in our hearts will never go away. Hugs, Berta
