Dear Abby - Remembering Special Pets: Princess Poo

Dear Friends,

I hope you are having a wonderful week!  I think spring is coming early here.  I love that, because it means longer walks outside.  

My good friend Angela is visiting today.  Angela is a great dachshund friend.  She runs the Doxieposse on Facebook and Twitter.  She has visited before, to introduce my buddy Gizmo and his family, and also to mourn the loss of Gizmo's brother Teddy.

Abby:  Thanks for stopping by!  What pet would you like to remember at my blog today? 

Angela:  The pet I want to mention is Princess Poo. She was around from April/May 2002 until June 2010. She was Gizmo's mom, she was half JRT and half dachshund. 

Abby:  What are some happy memories of Princess Poo? 

Angela:  Princess was full of spunk and energy. She always loved to do zoomies around the yard and house. She was Gizmo's best friend for the 4 years they spent together before her passing. When she was just a puppy, I would lay on the floor on my stomach and she would get in the nook between my legs and fall asleep. I felt bad when I needed to move, but that was her favorite spot. She also loved jumping on our trampoline. I would  put her on the trampoline and she would do zoomies on that and grab hold of my pants and bounce. Sometimes we would just lay on the trampoline and stare at the sky. She was always by my side. 

Abby:  Do you have any funny anecdotes? 

Angela:  This one may be a little bad, but it still makes me laugh to this day. My brother was living at home while Princess was around. He didn't like her climbing in the bed with him and would make her leave his room. One morning, I was standing in the doorway talking to my brother while he was at his closet. Princess had ran past me and hopped in his bed. She proceeded to climb on top of his pillow and take a poo. I couldn't stop laughing. She was glaring at my brother the entire time. She had got her revenge on him. I will never forget the look on her face, it was priceless. That would teach my brother to kick her out of his bedroom. It should be noted, they became really close years later and the poo incident was forgiven. 

Abby:  I enjoyed visiting with you today.  Is there anything else about Princess Poo you would like to share? 

Angela:  Princess was a special girl. I loved her dearly. I missed her while I was at college. She was one of the main reasons I would come back home to visit. Though she is no longer around, part of her lives on in her boy Gizmo. He reminds me of her everyday. The short time I had with her was some of the happiest times. She could make you laugh and was a great cuddle buddy. She ran the house and is still talked about almost daily, even 7 years after her passing. 
Abby:  Angela, thank you so much for visiting and sharing your memories of Princess Poo.  I loved the description of her playing on the trampoline.  I can just picture that!  She sounded so sweet and cuddly too.

What a beautiful girl Princess Poo was! And such personality!! She sounds like a wonderful companion to either play with or snuggle with. Just hide the bed pillows--LOL!
Thank you for sharing such great memories with us.

I love reading about Gizmo's Doggy Mommy. I can see how Gizmo resembles her, especially in the photo of Princess wearing the green sweater. Abby, this is such a wonderful series of blogs. I hope more folks decide to share their special memories with you, and us!

Thank you for sharing Princess Poo. She was so special to me. I miss her all the time and I am glad her memory lives on. Thank you everyone for the sweet comments as well. It means the world to me.

Awww, I have had one dog in my life - Hazel, my gorgeous chocolate lab. She was the sweetest, laziest dog in the world, and had a heart of gold. A water dog that couldn't swim either - fell in our pool once and just sunk. Guess she didn't realize she had webbed feet. Anyway, she lived to be 15 and passed 5 years ago, but we still miss her every day.

It sounds like Princess Poo was quite a character! She was so cute! This was a great chat.

I like her name. It is unique and suits her personality. I know pets have become part of our lives and even if they pass on, they are never forgotten.

Awe, I wanna cry reading all about your pet. I lost a pet many years ago that still pulls on my heart strings from time to time.
