TIKITOO 1990---2005

Tiki came to me as a six month old puppy.The sweetest little girl ever. She lived in a house with multiple pets but never played with toys or other dogs. She was "people." When we went to obedience school she danced around on her back legs waving to everyone but had no interest in the core curriculum.We traveled frequently both by car and plane and she enjoyed the adventure. When at home she ruled from her Tiki chair.

Always a happy and healthy girl it was a shock when at the age of fifteen she was diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer.Despite treatment she went to the Rainbow Bridge leaving a very empty spot in our lives.


 When somebody dies, a cloud turns into
an angel, and flies up to tell God
  to put another flower on a pillow.
 A bird gives the message back to
    the world, and sings a silent prayer
     that makes the rain cry. People dis-
         appear, but they never really go away.
    The spirits up there put the sun to
bed, wake up grass, and spin the
        earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you
        can see them dancing in a cloud during
       the day-time, when they're supposed
    to be sleeping. They paint the rain-
     bows and also the sunsets and make
 waves splash and tug at the tide.
         They toss shooting stars and listen to
  wishes. And when they sing wind-
songs, they whisper to us, don't
     miss me too much. The view is nice
and I'm doing just fine.
