Lost Maltese Dog - Angel
by Jackie Britton
I lost my Maltese Shihtzu mix a month ago to Intervertebral Disc Disease she would have been 4 years old on July 23 2013. Her name is Angel and everyday is hard we miss her so much. Angel was my best friend. She was pure white looked like a full blooded Maltese except for her spotted pot belly. She was so smart loved everyone especially the grandkids.
Angel was jumping around playing like she always had and she just stopped and looked at me like mommy help me... all of a sudden she could not move she was paralyzed from the head down. It broke my heart I took her to our vet and after a week in the hospital going there every couple of hours to hand feed her and give her water through an eye dropper. VOM treatments, lazer treatments a couple thousand dollars later we had to put her down she was in pain and suffering. That was the hardest thing I had to do and she just looked at me as I lied my head on the table next to her because she couldn't pick her head up she licked my face and begged me to let her go she cried we cried together. She only weighed 9 pounds.
Angel was a gift from my husband 4 years ago for my birthday and I had just lost my mom to lung cancer that's where she got the name Angel for my mom. My birthday was July 28th and my husband brought home our new puppy hoping it would help my pain and help me heal faster. She could never take Angels place she was on in a million. My daughter wanted to name her Bella and I started calling her Bella Boo then I had to register her and wanted Angel to be remembered so she got the name Bella Boo's Guardian Angel. Angel is now watching over Bella and Me :)
