1996 – Passed October 9 2010
Mikahla my 14 yr #140 Mommy’s Baby Girl St. Bernard Mix had Parvo at 8 wks old and hospitalized for 4 months, then had 13 months of acupuncture and herbal treatment from Dr. Dave McCluggage and became my happy bouncing 140# baby love muffin. Mikahla wanted to live! Mikahla loved butterflies, life, her sibling kitties, her little brother K9 Turner, her GrandMah Susan, Auntie Z, God Mom Jean, plus lots of veggies, romping around, car rides, life and more life and was my dear best friend. My “Ferdinand The Bull” sometimes forgot to even do her outside business because she played with the butterflies and smelled life so much. Her boyfriend was Ralph who preceded her (PC Pantry’s Big Boy).
Mikahla survived 1 yr with esophageal cancer at the end down to 83# yet Mikahla loved her special protein shakes, blueberries, squash, home grown eggs from Auntie Sarah and God Mom Jean, and lived on love, love and more love. Mikahla brought laughter and smiles to everyone (and she knew it too). She enjoyed all of her Auntie Z’s acupuncture treatments too.
When you brought home groceries and Mikahla was outside, she greeted you with scent of approval with her beautiful face buried in the grocery sack before you could make it in the door. Mikahla politely stepped back knowing there were tons of goodies to spoil her and her brothers within the sacks. Mikahla loved riding in HER convertible truck, and smiling at everyone that smiled at her. Mikahla’s gentleness was shared to all. Mikahla never met a person, Vet hospital, dog, cat or anything without sharing her great love. Mikahla made all the ladies at the bank laugh since Mikahla always watched the vacuum can sent from HER truck in the drive-thru speed inside the bank and of course all the way back she watched it with the arrival of the infamous cookies back at HER truck!
Thanks Dr. Kyra Toledo for saving Mikahla at 8 weeks old and for being her life long Doc and friend.
Most certainly our new Angel – Dr. Kathy Cooney, DVM-with special peace for release – compassion, immediate and gentle response, I deeply thank you.
Spyder – Mikahla’s 23 year old cat buddy sat over Dr. Cooney to make sure she was taking care of his best friend and our twin orange tabbies all together with a special good bye kiss from little brother Turner, tons of love from Mom, Auntie Z, God Mom Jean and new Angel Dr. Kathy Cooney… We will always miss you Mommy’s Baby Girl Mikahla – enjoy Heaven with GrandMah and everyone else! My Dear Mackie Duck, thank you for your hair-licker kisses, tons of love and always making me laugh, hogging the Queen size bed and showing and teaching me to see the flowers, butterflies and smell life!
Until again…Love Mom (Cyndie) – the most blessed Mom ever. ForEver Mikahla!
