View Full Version : Tashi: Lost too early

11-17-2004, 12:54 PM
When I was a freshman in college we had to put my cat (12 yrs old) too sleep because he had cancer... that was a horrible experience in itself because he was very special to me. The next Christmas my mom gave me an adorable Yorkie to bring some joy into our lives, and boy did she ever. My little Tashi was the highlight of our lives... 4 months later my mom brought Tucker home... 2 awesome Yorkies with the most charasmatic personalities ever. Being that I was in college it's fair to say that Tashi was never "my puppy" but really my mom's, so when I was able to take Tashi it wasn't even an option... she was happy. As the story goes, My mom took in my brother's German Shephard about 3 years ago, and the three dogs got along wonderfully... Unfortunately this past Sunday (11/14/04) something terrible happened. Dutchess (the German Shephard) and Tashi (4 pds) got into a "fight" over a bone, and Dutchess bit Tashi breaking her neck... she was only 6 years old... As I write this and look at her picture I still feel like it isn't real or fair... I have cried myself to sleep every night thinking of her. My heart is broken, as is everyone who knew and loved her. We know Dutchess didn't do it on purpose... this is just the most horrible thing any of us could have imagined... I'm hoping that this message board will help in the healing process. I will always remember my little Tashi or the "kisser" as well called her because she would lick your entire face every time you picked her up... I know she will be waiting for us on the other side.

I am so sorry about Tashi..I bet she is playing real good at the Rainbow bridge right now. Welcome to Pet talk, you will find this place a great way to share your stories, whether they be happy or sad. Maybe when you are ready, you can share a picture of Tashi with us. I know it isn't easy to lose a dog way too early before their time, I have been through that. So if you ever need to talk, feel free to PM me.

Thank you to all of you have taken the time to read about Tashi and to respond. I appreciate your kind words and sentiments. I've encouraged my mother to log on as well. Again, thank you. And once I figure out how, I will post pics of Tashi, Tucker, Dutchess and my Westie (Madison) who lives with me.

Oh Stephanie, I'm so very sorry for your great loss:(:(:( What a tregedy for your entire family and all of us share in your pain and saddness. As Logan has said, I hope with time your heart will mend, though we all know what a great emptiness her passing has left in your heart. How blessed you were to have known the love of such a special furkid like Tashi and blessed was Tashi to have known the unconditional love you gave her. Bless you sweet Tashi, dear Kisser. Wait there patiently at the Bridge for your Mom until that happy day you are together again. Again, I'm so, so sorry Steph:( Love, Sandra
