Miss Minx - the Mistress of our Home
Minx was adopted from the "pound" in the Fall of 1994 by our youngest daughter. At the time our daughter had just started her junior year of college, lived in college housing and pets were NOT allowed. In January of 1995 our daughter needed her wisdom teeth pulled and needed to come home ... uh oh ... she had to explain this pet to her father and I. I told her that if she was fined it would be her responsibility to pay the fine. After some thought on her part she asked if Minx could live with us during the school year. Obviously the answer was YES. This little girl literally stole my and my husband's heart. Upon graduating from college our daughter decided to move to Minnesota...it was quite easy for me to say "You can't take Minx!" And my husband supported me in this decision. This sweet lady lived as part of our family until Sunday, January 6, 2013. Of course, she's still part of our family, but now in heart and memories.
The loss and pain I feel is indescribable! I've lost family members in the past. People understand that loss. Not everyone understands the loss of your fur baby. For me this pain has been as deep and devastating as any I've ever felt! Minx was 18 1/2 years old when she went to heaven...oh how I wish I could have her for another 18+ years.
I will continue Minx' story later...need to take a break.
