L'il Girl: Sad day...

The morning started off great today. We were headed to go to the butcher and to buy Andrews' EMT pants and boots for his clinicals. Then his dad calls and says two words: "L'il Girl's dead."

L'il Girl was a 7/8 year old Boxer. It was Andrew's first dog. When he was a teenager, he traded a guitar for her. She was the epitome of a backyard-bred Boxer with a heart of gold. She had a severe underbite, but it didn't impede her ability to eat. She had horrible conformation, but she still "kidney-beaned" and wiggled her little hiney when she saw someone.

When Andrew was a teenager, and she darted out the front door and was hit by a car, he spent every last penny of his paycheck for her Vet bills and worked off the rest of the costs.

Andrew ended up moving away from home and into an apartment when he went to school. L'il Girl stayed behind and became his dad's "girl."

When Andrew had his motorcycle wreck and was laid up at his parents' house so they could care for him, she would lay on his bed on his feet and stare out the door. When Andrew woke up in the morning, she'd be laying in the same spot, staring at the door to protect him.

She was tolerant of my pain in the arse German Shepherd puppy trying to play with her. She never harmed a single animal or person - including annoying cats that would jump and latch onto her, hissing (Andrew's sister's former cat.)

His dad found her in the living room early this morning. He thought she was sleeping, but she didn't respond when he called her name.

You are definitely missed and will always be loved, L'il Girl.

Re: L'il Girl: Sad day...

My compassion goes out to you, Andrew, his Dad and family at the loss of sweet Lil Girl. Such a loved, cherished pretty Boxer girl she was. It sounds as if she was right in the heart of her family. Run free, sweetie.
