I never really got a chance to grieve Fiona. Zappa took over her blanket and most of my thoughts, getting him through that time period of losing the three dogs. So, now with the blanket free I've begun the process of sadness for my little girl. Chance and Brut may have been my heart dogs, but Fiona was my love. She was the one who went out of her way to cheer me up. Fiona was so full of love, sweetness, and affection. She had no problem expressing her love. She was precious that way.
I'd been teaching Fiona to pick up toys and other items off the ground, then she would immediately drop them. I tried everything to get her to hold the item in her mouth for at least a second more with the hopes that she would drop it in my hand or lap. She was way too excited to hang on to the item. She wanted that treat. lol So, one day I'm having a tough day and Fiona just starts picking up and dropping items on the floor. It was so darn cute and she had me laughing in no time.
Fiona was definitely special. So sweet and loveable. She had a way of touching my spirit when I needed it most. And every time in between.
To my girl,
I can't believe it has been two years since we played our game. Or saw your smile. Or how you shook your booty when you were excited. Two years...and not a day goes by that I don't think of you.
I love you, Fiona. ♥
