I picked him up from the breeder the day I graduated college in 1992 and he has been my constant companion ever since. It was soon evident he needed a playmate, so I picked up my 3 legged Tonka three weeks later. They became the best of friends. Teddi and Tonka slept hugging one another through thick and thin. I moved from PA to New Mexico and finally landed in Colorado. They were such troupers through it all. Teddi greeted everyone at the door and truly believed everyone was here to love and adore him. He would sit on me for hours and hours and gratefully accept love and affection. He was love with fur. Teddi slept with me every night and always wanted to be spooned. The past three years he had progressively gotten thinner and thinner. His health grew worse and he decided that being on my lap 24/7 was the best medicine. He and his brother had a safe fenced in yard where they slept in the sun and shade for hours as I worked on the computer outside with them. Teddi had lost a lot of weight and his kidneys weren’t working well. It was time to help him. He was so peaceful and after I made the call we just sat outside all day and night hugging each other until the sun came up. My friend Julie was with me as Kathleen helped him cross over. Julie said,with a smile, that she was almost knocked over by all the angels that wanted to help him go to heaven. My dear sweet Teddi died in my arms on September 14th 2008 at 10:45 am with his buddy Tonka standing guard. I have beautiful memories and videos of our time together. Tonka and I are creating new routines and figuring out life without our dear sweet Teddi. I love you with all my heart. Thank you for spending your life with me. Please send some angels to help Tonka and I. We miss you baby.
