(Submitted 3-13-2005) Yesterday I had some pictures taken to submit to the photo contest showing off my little family of joys. Today tragically we lost Little Bit. I wondered if I should or should not still enter the pictures, I am going ahead in memory of Little Bit. She may be gone, but her memory will live on. This is Little Bit, who won the hearts of anyone who was around her. A joy to all.
The second picture is Dad, Rush, and Little Bit. Don't let the picture decieve you, neither was ferocious, just both going after a snack Mom was holding over their head. LOL
Third picture is Mom, Sugar Bits, the Black Chihuahua, then Dad, Rush, and of course our precious Little Bit, may God's Angels be loving her as much as I did.

What a little sweetheart! So sorry that she won't be with us anymore but so glad you were able to get the pictures of her to share with us. So sorry for your loss. It is some consolation that you have Rush and Sugar Bits still around to love. I'm sure they are mourning her loss, too.
So sorry for your loss, what a cute lil pup. Thanks for sharing the story and pictures.
I'm so glad you shared all the pictures with us. Our dogs live in our memories forever and are never forgotten. Each little life is precious and I'm so sorry for your loss.
Thank you everyone for your kind words.
Our losing Little Bit still hurts so badly. It was such a shock. One minute she was there, doing what she enjoyed most, playing; and the next minute, she was gone! She had just gotten a piece of food from her food dish and was running into the living room with it. She usually liked to run and through it up in the air and play with it before actually eating it. This particular time she was more excited and was running faster than normal and I guess was not paying attention to where she was running and ran smack into the coffee table leg. She broke her neck instantly!
It makes me cry just reading about it. It must have been such a shock. Take care of yourself. At least you got to share her short life. Who knows why some are taken from us so quickly and suddenly. My heart goes out to you.
How sad for you. But how fortunate that you were to have taken the pictures the day before. What a precious angel Little Bit will make ... if dogs & kitties go to the same Heaven, then my sweet old kitty Schatz will be there to keep him company.
I am sad to hear your news!
I am a BIG ANIMAL LOVER, and have lost Pets of my own.
It is a sad thing but know that lil bit is happy and safe where he is now!!
Take Care of the Pets you still have and give them extra lovin!!
I can't tell you how healing all of your words are to me. Thank you again. It is like you all understand the hurt and pain that I feel. Some people say "Get over it, she was just a dog." But from the moment she was born, I knew she was the one in the liter that I wanted to keep. I didn't know why, I just knew. We had such a connection, such a closeness, that I have not felt with any of my other dogs. Not to say I am not close with my other dogs, cause I am, but with Sugar Bits, there was a special closeness that we shared together. She knew just how to make you smile no matter how sad or how much of a bad day you were having.
Dear Edie, I'm so so sorry for your loss. I've lost pets too and it's so hard.
I lost my best friend a year ago, and I know exactly how you feel. Even today, I was thinking about her and started crying. But I found a wonderful remembrance for her. Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
What a sweet face your Little Bit had. I am sorry
that you are missing her so much and I hope you
can hold on to the fun memories of your little one.
I lost my cat AllieMae last March and to this day I
still think of her and what a sweetie she was. I now
have 2 doggies one is barely a pup and I think I love them more than ever I could ever imagine.
I guess its the joy and abandon of how a puppy
loves you that is so great. I wish you healing
happiness. I read the post of Rainbow Ridge and I
cried for my AllieMae and your Little Bit. Pets are
family too, some may never know the joy.
Edie, I am so sorry about Little Bit. What a little sweety. Thank you for sharing her pictures as well as your other dogs. They are all so adorable. I have been there and know how heartbreaking it is when we lose our precious furbabies.
My heart goes out to you in your loss. Thank you Peggy for telling me the story of the Rainbow Bridge, because before too long, I know my dear old Bandit will be playing in that field too, waiting for me.
I am so sorry for your loss.
Sorry to hear of your loss. Losing a close friend is so hard. She was loved and will be fondly missed by your family. You have a treasure of memories from her good life, how fortunate you are to have had such a treasure in your lives.

So sorry to hear about your loss. My beautiful Yorkshire Terrier died on 2nd March of this year and I am so devastated. However, we must remember all the wonderful memories of our dogs, they will never leave us. Here is Amber on the right, isn't she cute?
I know it is hard to lose a beloved pet but try to remember all the unwaivering love and affection they gave you. Some people tell us to "get over it" and to get another animal in their place but they simply don't understand that we have lost a precious member of our family.
Little Bit looks so sweet, you were blessed to have her. Cherish your memories because no-one can take them away from you.
I am so sorry for your loss. I had to send my beautiful black lab, Migra, over the Rainbow Bridge a couple of years ago and was devastated. I was lucky that a friend's mother had rescued a little dog who needed a home. He has been a wonderful addition to my family and certainly helped me get through the grieving process.
What a sweetie! I'm glad that you went ahead and sent the pictures, she will always be a special part of your family! I started crying just reading about her and in turn thinking of my cat Muffin, and he died almost 5 years ago. You never quit thinking about them and that's ok.
im verry sorry to hear about this my pomeranian princess just died in august. I got a new dog though his name is roy and he is a pug. I also have 3 chiuahuas and 1 yorkie
