Callie & Lexie
(Lancaster County, PA, USA)
Our little bookends last Christmas!
An angel of a dog, Callie, was our white, peace-maker miniature schnauzer. She was quiet, loving and a perfect compliment to her sisters, Misty, Whoopi and Lexie. Callie's life was a long one...living past 15 years. She grew weary in the past few years, becoming deaf, her back legs not allowing steps or jumping anymore, but her grace continued until she died on March 23, 2011, with her two daddies by her side. She had said goodbye to her older sisters, Misty and Whoopi, and left a grieving baby sister, Lexie.
Lexie was a very vibrant, noisy, lively and independent little girl...we lovingly called her 'grexy lexy'. She made noises that a dog truly isn't supposed to make, but that was part of her unique personality. Although we didn't see any signs of grief when Callie died (no loss of appetite, etc.), Lexie had a seizure on Monday, April 11, 2011, only 19 days after Callie's death. She had a seizure later that morning and her veterinarian was not able to save her.
Our lives are empty, the house is lonely...we thought we'd have at least another 3 or 4 years with Lexie. I prayed for some comfort; a message from her to give me some peace. That morning at 4 am I woke with a divine voice speaking for Lexie saying, "I gave you all I had to give, there was no more left; I was tired and had to go." I do believe she needed to be with her sister, Callie, and followed her across the Rainbow Bridge!!!
Broken Hearts with Loving Memories Forever,
