road trippin'

aoife loved roadtrips and has been to the mountains, the desert & several beaches. i went through daughter #1's social media accounts to pull some pictures to share with y'all.









2006-2018

thanks for bearing with me this week as i said adios to our sweet aoife. it's been a really tough week for us. our dogs are not just "dogs" to us. they are a part of our family. casa chihuahua will never be the same without her. ever. i'm glad y'all got to know her.

it's still can't believe she's gone. just like that. life is so precious. hold your fur babies close and never take them for granted. they are with us for such a short time. we have to love them, just as they love us, unconditionally.

aoife, you have left our lives, but you will never leave our hearts.

serendipity

i loved taking pictures of the girls together because i never knew how the shoot would turn out. sometimes i would get nothing but other times i would capture moments that were serendipitous. this set, from 2012, shows aoife staying calm, cool and collected as bailey loses her footing and ends up slowly sliding down her back. BOL

turn back time tuesday

aoife and bailey loved to play together. this series of pictures is from 2014 (1 month before bailey's accident). they would play like this all the time. aoife was twice her size but bailey wasn't intimidated. she could hold her own pretty well.

angel aoife

along with the joy and happiness that comes with having a dog, also comes the pain and heartache when they have to leave us. this is what we went through early saturday morning. eef had been dealing with some health issues lately but nothing that would lead us to expect this outcome. preliminary diagnosis was a ruptured heart valve. they resuscitated her a couple of times but the only humane thing to do for her was to let her go. it was sudden and unexpected and we are all devastated.


2006-2018

daughter #1 brought aoife into our family in april of 2006, when she was just 2 months old. she was so tiny, she fit in hubby's hands! it's hard to believe she was ever smaller than bailey.


a month later, her ears stood up and they were huge!


she was such a cutie.


kibbles, my heart dog, was still with us, and let's just say, she tolerated little aoife's puppy antics. poor kibbles was so patient with baby aoife. they shared 4 years together.


aoife was the coolest and she totally rocked her shades.


2010

she was just as comfortable with mud on her face...


2013

as she was all glammed up.


2013

she loved going out on new adventures. as long as she didn't encounter any people ... or dogs. she wasn't very social. BOL


2013

she loved to hunt lizards. no matter where they were, she'd always find them.


2014

she was a beautiful ring bearer when her mommy (daughter #1) got married.


2015

but most importantly, she knew how to have fun and not take herself too seriously.


2017

when kibbles crossed the bridge in january of 2010, aoife was here for me. then bailey came into our family in november 2010, and she and aoife became fast friends. she was bailey's best gurl. they went rock climbing...


2013

they'd go shopping...


2013

they had pajama parties...


2014

they were the best gal pals.


2015

we are all going to miss aoife something fierce. she was a part of our family for almost 12 years. she was woven into the fabric of our lives. and now there's just a hole. a big, ugly hole.

nobody is ever prepared to lose a fur baby but when it is just hurled at you, out of the blue, it's just so unfair.

run free sweet girl ... i love you.
