      Whizzer 1998-2010

      Devoted Companion, Best Friend, 4-legged-fur-Child

      On the evening of Friday July 9th, Ryan and I had to make the devastating decision to say goodbye to our little girl, Whizz.

      Whizz was 12 years old, we had had her for 6 years and the past two years we had been dealing with diabetes. Whizzer became blind soon after being diagnosed when it was finally figured out she was immune to Canine insulin. Blindness never stopped her from running down the road, or playing like a goofy pup even at the age of 12.

      Though Whizzer did not like dogs after a brutal attack she was victim of with her past owner, she couldn’t have been any more loving to all other creatures. Whizz had a way with animals, and they somehow sensed that and were never frightened of her, no matter the species. She loved cats, and would groom and care for ones she met. Her favorite rabbits were Rex bunnies, and Bo bunny was her ‘boyfriend’ as she loved to rough house with him, groom him and try to steal his treats.
      Bunnies were her favorite ‘Pez Dispensers’, she’d follow them around, when they’d stopped she’d tap them on the butt with her nose for another ‘treat.

      Whizz attended agility classes with me in her younger days, where she excelled. Her favorite obstacle was the tunnel. We knew she would like Agility since she enjoyed jumping our 6 foot fence, out 3rd story windows and a small camper window just to be with us.

      Whizz wasn’t afraid of thunder, gun shots or fire crackers. She would ride our ATV with us, as she was a bit of a lazy princess dog. She had her own room in our house with a couch and radio of her own. She wouldn’t go outside if it was to cold, to hot, raining or snowing and that included going to the bathroom, she’d hold it! We’d have to dig a path in the snow to the grass so she had a place to do her business.
      Though when it came to playing in the snow like a lunatic, that was a whole other ball game and she loved it, especially when she was wearing her waterproof red doggy coat.

      Baths and nail clippings were not her favorite thing at all, though she loved AFTER a bath where she’d run around the house happier then can be, bounding up and down the hall.

      Whizz was ever so helpful when it came to catch feral bunnies, she was named ‘Rabbit Rescue Dog’ after her first outing. “Where’s the Gerbil?” and off she was sniffing out the bunnies. Because of Whizz I was able to catch Aniseed our bunny, who became Whizzers good friend. (I used Whizz to find escapee gerbils in our house way to many times to count, hence “find gerbil”.).

      She never stole food off the tables, never begged at people eating (though small children’s hands holding hot dogs were fair game when camping), she never barked or bit, wrecked furniture or things like shoes and rarely had ‘accidents’ in the house.
      Even with the few negative issues we dealt with those would never outweigh what a wonderful companion she was.

      I am sure that everyone who had ever met her can say she was an amazing dog who will be greatly missed.
       

       
       

      I love you Whizzy, Mommy & Daddy’s hearts are broken now, but I know one day we will be together again, as the happy family we had been for 6 years. Thank you for every memory, I hope we gave you everything you ever wanted (except for the cat, I’m sorry I was allergic).

      Oh I am sorry to hear you’ve had to say goodbye to your girl Andi! I visited the website when you first joined BB.com and was very taken by Whizzers sweet soul. I’m would not be surprised that she’ll be around you and still taking care of everything. Probably bringing her Bo with her.
      You gave a wonderful dog a wonderful life. (((Healing vibes))) to you, your husband and any of the critters that are missing her.

      I’m sorry for the loss of your dear friend. She was very beautiful and how sweet that she loved other animals. She is up there, you can be sure and she can see and is as healthy as a puppy. Now you just have to keep her in you heart until you meet again.

      Thank you all for your kind words
      It’s been a tough week, The first few days everytime i got home and opened the door I would just start crying. It’s just so lonley, I even went to ‘let her out’ at 9pm one night, everythings just so ingrained into me for her care. So it’s been so hard to get over that part.
      The Hubby is away untill next Sunday, so i didn’t even have him here, I am sure when he does come home he will have the same things I am going through.
      I have learned the more care you have to give to a animal (medications etc.) the stronger a bond you make with them, and when they go it’s just so much more painful. It was sort of like this when i said goodbye to my handicap bunny Ebony as well. I was sorta of relieved not to have to worry for her 24/7 and rush home each day to get her bathed and medicated. But i feel almost useless when i don’t have all those things to do.

      I’m hoping for just happy healthy critters till at least next year, I don’t want another loss, I feel i’ve had enough this year.

      I’m late hearing about Whizzer. I am so sorry!!! She was a great dog, one in a million!!! I love her dingo looks. Andi, I know you will be hurting for a long time… a dog is a man’s (woman’s) best friend after all. Who can take a dog’s place?
