This Is Where The Cowgirl Rides Away


Well, I's made it.  I's arrived at da Land of Infinite Bacon, Smashed Taters, and Eggie Weggies.  And guess what pals, da Nilla supply are UNLIMITED and I smell a steak on da grill too.  And I are seein so many friends - da ones I knew in real life and da ones I only knew from da internets.  And I arrived just in time for da Cinco de Mayo pawty - so bring on da tacos, enchiladas, cervezas, and of course da margaritas.  Fur some reason, I gots a feelin dat my momma are gonna be hittin da tequila bottle hard today.


I did not "go quietly into dat good nite."  I fought it.  What would ya eggspect, I'm a terrierist and we is tuff to da end.  And nobody likes a needle poke, am I right?  Plus, da vetman shaved a lil bit of my leggy furs - what da woof dude???  But dey's all back now, so I guess I forgives him for it.  Anyways, I yelped, hey, I wuz finally vocalizin like myself again.  Den I just kept on breathin after da first shot - us terrierists know how to fight.  Or maybe since da vetman wuz doin it by weight, he wuzn't accounting for all dat steak, bacon, eggie weggies, and Nillas in my tummy.  And maybe a couple eggstra pounds or two.  BOL.  Anyways, after da second shot, I finally made my way there.


Last nite wuz tuff.  I wuz pantin for hours and wheezin.  I wuz just not havin a good time.  Even when momma put on my favorite movie, Oklahoma, for me, I wuz still pantin.  And drinkin water like a camel gettin ready to cross da Arid-zona desert or somefins.  Momma finks I had some udder isshoes going on - we'll never know and it doesn't matter now.


Momma managed to stop cryin long enuf to take dis picture wif me.  We wuz bestest friends, I hope Finley are gonna do a good job of watchin out for her until Next Dog gets here.  I don't think I can trust Travis, he'd probably be distracted by bacon or somefin - he's a sweet cat, but I's not shure I trust him for securitee work.


Da mommas all wore pink for me.  It wuz my "signature color" as dey said in Legally Blonde.  Plus it are a happy color, and I wuz always a happy girl.


Speshully when being luved on by my peeps.


A few last cuddles.


Finley's momma made me da most speshulist brekkyfast today.  Scrambly eggie weggies and tons of BACON!  Finley got some too, but I got more bacon.  Cuz I's speshul like dat.


Yum yum yum.


Bowl-cleaning good.


We rode wif da convertible top down to da vet.  And it wuz a pretty sunshiney day, momma said it wuz perfect for me since I wuz her sunshine girl.


Dis are my last pickshure.  I wuz a smily girl to da end.  Ok, I wuz pantin, but I wuz smilin too.  I even had a pretty towel to lie on wif a big ol hurricane glass on it - I are pretty shure dat da vet techs know me and momma well!  And I got to say goodbye to my friends there - Star, Wendy, Jackie, and Dr. Shawn.

As I said yesterday, dis blog are gonna be quiet for a while.  Until Next Dog gets here.  Den she are gonna takeover - da name will change, but we'll let y'all know in advance.  And yeah, we already know it are gonna be a she - someone has got to wear all my pretty dresses I left behind, and it ain't gonna be a Bruce/Caitlyn situayshun (not dat dere are anything wrong wif dat if dat's what you's into), even if my momma are named Kim and too fond of selfies, we ain't da Kardashians.  Her butt are too small.  Anyways, my momma will be readin your blogs, but it'll be my kitty brofur Travis who are commenting as Lone Star Cats.  So if ya sees a sassy orange tabby talkin smack on your blogs, yup, it are him.  Feel free to bark at him, he'll meyowl right back at ya.  My twitter and instagram are also gonna be quiet until Next Dog inherits em.  And ya can also find my momma on da Book of Faces - she changed it to usin her real name now since usin my name felt wrong now dat I'm not here anymore.


The last goodbye's the hardest one to say, this is where the cowgirl rides away . . .

Arooooo!

  36. Hi Whitley's family. You don't know me but I'm Noodle's grandma. My heart is breaking for you. Noodle and his mom told me how special Whitley was. I have a couple things to share with you.....Some of you, particularly those who think they have recently lost a dog to “death”, don’t really understand this. I’ve had no desire to explain, but won’t be around forever and must.

    Dogs never die. They don’t know how to. They get tired, and very old, and their bones hurt. Of course they don’t die. If they did they would not want to always go for a walk, even long after their old bones say:” No, no, not a good idea. Let’s not go for a walk.” Nope, dogs always want to go for a walk. They might get one step before their aging tendons collapse them into a heap on the floor, but that’s what dogs are. They walk.

    It’s not that they dislike your company. On the contrary, a walk with you is all there is. Their boss, and the cacaphonic symphony of odor that the world is. Cat poop, another dog’s mark, a rotting chicken bone ( exultation), and you. That’s what makes their world perfect, and in a perfect world death has no place.

    However, dogs get very very sleepy. That’s the thing, you see. They don’t teach you that at the fancy university where they explain about quarks, gluons, and Keynesian economics. They know so much they forget that dogs never die. It’s a shame, really. Dogs have so much to offer and people just talk a lot.

    When you think your dog has died, it has just fallen asleep in your heart. And by the way, it is wagging it’s tail madly, you see, and that’s why your chest hurts so much and you cry all the time. Who would not cry with a happy dog wagging its tail in their chest. Ouch! Wap wap wap wap wap, that hurts. But they only wag when they wake up. That’s when they say: “Thanks Boss! Thanks for a warm place to sleep and always next to your heart, the best place.”

    When they first fall asleep, they wake up all the time, and that’s why, of course, you cry all the time. Wap, wap, wap. After a while they sleep more. (remember, a dog while is not a human while. You take your dog for walk, it’s a day full of adventure in an hour. Then you come home and it’s a week, well one of your days, but a week, really, before the dog gets another walk. No WONDER they love walks.)

    Anyway, like I was saying, they fall asleep in your heart, and when they wake up, they wag their tail. After a few dog years, they sleep for longer naps, and you would too. They were a GOOD DOG all their life, and you both know it. It gets tiring being a good dog all the time, particularly when you get old and your bones hurt and you fall on your face and don’t want to go outside to pee when it is raining but do anyway, because you are a good dog. So understand, after they have been sleeping in your heart, they will sleep longer and longer.

    But don’t get fooled. They are not “dead.” There’s no such thing, really. They are sleeping in your heart, and they will wake up, usually when you’re not expecting it. It’s just who they are.



    I feel sorry for people who don’t have dogs sleeping in their heart. You’ve missed so much. Excuse me, I have to go cry now.

  38. From Foley Monster: Welcome to the Bridge my friend. Come, take my paw. Let's go down to the water. You see that. Yup, it's your own floatie. You can float all day. And when you look in the water you can see your lovely Mom. We are all going to have to keep a close eye on her. Her heart must be very broken right now. We hope she finds a new dog to help rebuild her broken heart soon. As for now let us Terriers go floating down the river into the sunset together

  89. Oh, sweet Whitley, we sure are going to miss seeing your beautiful face, and you in all your pretty dresses. We are feeling so sad over here. I've asked my furangel Gibson to find you and show you all the good places to play and lounge by the pool (he loved the pool, too!) You were so lucky to have such a sweet momma and she was so lucky to have you. Your love will remain for eternity in the hearts of all those who loved you. We are dedicating our blog post today to you, and thank you for being our friend. You are the sweetest. xo

  90. Coco and Puffy were so excited to see you at the Rainbow bridge. We know your humans and Finley must be very sad right now as our momma is also. You had a good life with a very loving family and someday you will all be together again. But, until then, Ebby, Winkles, Ceeley, and all your other angel pals are going to throw the biggest welcoming party for you.

  92. Good bye, friend Whitley. Cobi and I will see you again someday! Until then, keep smiling! (Why is our person crying? Doesn't she know that this is what makes us Dogs so special? We only stay for a short time, compared to them, so all of our amazingness and love shines bright and strong! Our person is still crying. Whitely, we are sending your person many licks and wags and doggy smiles, and I know some of them are from you!)

  95. Oh my goodness - I came here from Bailey's page, and read about Whitley's last days; it sounded exactly like what I went through with my 13 1/2 yr old Josey, who crossed the bridge December before last. Josey was the strongest, most stoic dog I've ever known, and she yelped twice and urinated when they injected her. I never suspected it would be like that, I thought it would be calm and peaceful :( I wish I had known what to expect and been prepared. Why isn't there a better way??! I'm sorry you had to experience that, too, but sweet Whitley and my Josey are at peace now. Godspeed, Whitley!

  96. Oh dear Whitley. We are so sad that you had to go to the bridge. We have been thinking about our furiends in blogville a lot lately, and thought we would catch up and we came to your bloggie. You have been a great friend to us, and Seth especially wants you to know that he will forever remember the awesome time he had with you at the Valentines Day Dance. We are sending hugs and kisses to your momma and family. Run free sweet girl. Save some of that bacon for Braeden...low fat is boring!
    Much love and waggies.

  97. Just wanted to say one last time, we love you, Whitley. Hope you get to play with all our angels, too, even though they are cats! Brandi loved little dogs, so be sure she will play with you any time you want.Her BFF is named Maggie, and she is a Schnauzer. Don't hold that against her. Maggie's mommy has been friends with my mommy for ages and ages!
    Mommy says she loves terrierists, but you most of all.
    We will look forward to seeing the new woofie, but will never forget you. Hugs and kisses to your family. They are probably having a hard time without you right now. Oh, wait. You are in their hearts, right? That will help.Sweet farewell. I would bark if I could, but
    Meow,
    QUINN
    oh, yeah, Mommy too.
