In Memory of Gizmo

I would like to take this day to remember my friend, Gizmo. Gizmo went to the Bridge on Tuesday 9/23/08, after a long illness with cancer. Please go visit his mum and his brother, Deetz, as they are very sad right now, as are we.

Gizmo was a fighter and never complained or cried, even when he was hurting so bad. My mom and I called him "the little gray furry fighter". Mom said it seemed it was "the little gray ones" that fought the hardest.


My sister Misty is our "little gray one". She has also had health issues, and has fought hard, and is healthy now. Misty always looked up to Gizmo because she knew he was very wise and strong. Misty is very sad now to have lost such a great role model.

Gizmo.....Now you can run and frolic without pain and one day we will see you again. Gizmo, you will be greatly missed.

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

Awe, JB, thank you so much for the post and for me, go over and kiss misty on the head and tell her she is my role model. If you can get close to poopoo without getting slapped by her, kiss her too, okay?

We know what you mean about the gray ones, JB! We think Deetzie will be OK because Gizmo sent him a message by way of wonderful butterfly!

We like to think Tess met Gizmo. Chihuahuas are very funny. They always, given a choice, will prefer their own kind(ie another chi)over other doggies. So, since Tess has been over there 3 years, we like to think she met the boy,the lil man, and is showing him around. Neither one of them has nasty old cancer anymore and they get to eat and run and play again. Don't know if it will be me or Gizmo's mom to get there first, but betcha one of us sees them together. That makes me smile.
