The Little Weasel

Miss Tilly was named after one of my favorite old neighbors from years past.  I always seem to end up with a good neighbor almost everywhere I've ever lived :-).  

As most puppies do, Tilly dug some holes in our gardens and Tim started calling her The Garden Weasel after one of those "as seen on tv" ads.  The Garden Weasel soon became Weaslie and then Tim's dad called her Weaser.  She picked up Short Round and Tilly Bobby from a couple of favorite movies.  The Little Shriner came from the guys who drove the tiny cars around in circles at the circus.  Tilly would run in circles trying to figure out what direction Iris was heading.  Dammit Weaslie because...corgis ;-).  

We got to sit outside under the still standing Christmas card tree yesterday and enjoy a dog picnic and one last afternoon nap.  There are worse ways to spend an afternoon.

So sorry about your loss. Seems like so many of our sentient friends are leaving us this past year. It's been a very odd year. Thank goodness Tilly had you and other good friends to create wonderful memories.

I am so sorry for your loss. She was a dear friend and member of the Punkin's Patch family, and I know you and Tim will miss her.

Oh, gosh. I am so sorry. There is the thankful part....you got to have Tilly for a long time, but the other part,the trip over the Rainbow Bridge is just so sad. So very sad.

Hugs to you, Sara. You are a good and wonderful soul.

All the previous comments have said all there is to say. Tilley was a very lucky pup to be in your family and you were lucky to have her. It’s so hard to say goodbye. Thank you for including us.
