Remembering Winnie Wiggles - Heaven's Jiggliest Angel

Winnie Wiggles, Howard's Big Sister
Photo taken Oct 21, 2007

Today is the second anniversary of the death of the little heartbeat at my feet, Winnifred Wigglepants. She was my velcro pug and my love, and I miss her every moment of every day.

This is her diary entry on dogster the day she passed:

Winnie died this morning very early while she was in the care of the tech at the ICU. I think she was very tired. She was my brave girl and was such a big part of our lives. Please say a prayer that she is comforted now.

She loves breakfast-time so much. I hope that she is enjoying scrambley egg and a bowl of delicious kibble this morning and making the angels laugh with her roo roo roo morning song and breakfast time spinning.

Who will wash Howie's face now? Who will sit on my feet when I am on the 'puter? Who will keep dad company in the kitchen when he is cooking? Our little one with such a big heart is gone, and it all happened so quickly and unexpectedly.

We were so blessed to have her with us for just 2 short years. What an extraordinary little dog she was.

I told her last night it was okay to go - she was sitting up in her oxygen cage at the ICU for 2 days, waiting for me. She always sat and waited for me. The moment she laid down was when she passed.

Please hug your babies for me today and say a prayer for angel Winnie. She was cherished.

Heavenly Missive - Tribute to Wiggles

Whippy creme and scrambled eggs are
Way up here in Heaven
In case you too
See only blue and wonder what you're gettin

They're other things like angel wings
With fur that's never sheddin'.
There's no disease or achin knees
and wrinkles smooth and silken

I fall asleep and dream of you
and times when we were given
to sprint and run and tug on toys
and dash to mom for lovin.

Tonight no tears oh Howie dear
because I have been taken
I’ll kiss your cheek and whiskers sweet
And heal the ache within you.

The pain it fades and goes away
And even loss feels lighter
When time moves on then pushes back
All that separates us.

This a very sweet tribute to Wiggles. Our first pug Hunter passed over the rainbow bridge one day after his 1st birthday. And just like you we think about him practically everyday. I think they're always in our heart.

Winnie is a precious angel, and I know she is watching over all of you - especially Howie (who would be happy to know that the word verification is refries - food)!

Awww that was so sweet. And what a sweet face she has in the photo. I'm sure she is at the Rainbow Bridge with my puggies, Butch and Peanut, chasing butterflies and stuffing themselves on treats :) HUGS

This post about Winnie made us cry. What a wonderful sweet loyal pug she must have been. The angels are keeping her busy and happy across the bridge!

Nancy, that is such a lovely tribute to her. I cry with you as I read her story. Just something about a pug that really gets deep down into your heart. I'm sorry she had such a short life but oh so happy it was spent with you! Love ya!!

Such a diva Winnie was! Just look at those beautiful, clear brown eyes. Always an angel, Nancy.

Two years was just not long enough.

Hi Nancy. I really enjoyed reading your tribute to Wiggles. I had an older brother named Dylan. Although I never met him, I have read his blog (found on my blog) many times. My mom still misses him dearly. I wish I would have had a chance to meet him. You are a very special mommy too!!!

Here's a big hug & smoochie for you! XO

What a lovely tribute. Us puggies just never live long enough, but someone have to go up and entertain the angels in heaven, too. We know you're waiting to give Howie and your hoomans the very warmest welcome when it's their time to arrive, Winnie Wiggles.

You will see her again and imagine all the love that she gave and will give when she comes running to you at the Bridge.
The Lozano Puglets and their mommy are sad and ache with you for Winnie

Crying tears for you Nancy... because I know how much you must miss your baby. Not crying for Miss Winnie though! She is living the good life now, and I think that one day, a LONG time from now, when your time on this earth ends... You'll have a pretty sweet reunion waiting for you in the clouds.

Sending comforting hugs,
Kelly & Pearl
