Tonight, K, E and I said goodbye to our sweet and longtime companion, Twiggy. She lived a very full life, but not all of it was happy. She began her life with the unthinkable, inhumane reality faced by puppy mill breeding stock. We are all so thankful that she was able to spend her retirement in a much more suitable and loving environment, where she luxuriated on the sofa and was adored by all who met her. Twiggy’s heart was the biggest I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. She literally loved everyone she encountered and I imagine this world would be a much better place if we all cared for one another with such sincerity. Twiggy was also a diva who had a flair for the dramatic and was the reigning title holder from the first (and only) Motor City Pride Doggy Drag Show.
Twiggy, we know that you are now at peace and are again with your late sister Crunchy, whom I’m certain exuberantly bounded toward you to greet you on the other side. We are the most grateful pet parents to have had you in our lives and you will always be in our hearts.
