getting into cabinets, catching anything that moved, playing hide n go seek, running around the house while we listened to music, exploring the laundry room
getting a bath and car rides
bandaides, q-tips, emery boards
Favorite Nap Spot:
wherever i was and the "bird cage" chair

getting out of the baby gates
It all started when Sprite was 5 weeks old her real mother, Eek stopped feeding her. She began dragging her back legs. It was the saddest thing to watch. I took her to the vet. She weighed less then paper. And was given less then 50% chance to live. I took her home. Got some formula to feed her. And started doing bicycle exercises with her. Within a week she was standing on her back legs. An x-ray reveiled the lower part of her spin was fused. Forward a couple of years... Sprite started having spasms. Bitting her feet so bad they would swell. The vet said if she continued ,they would amputate her feet. This passed with the help of pills to calm her. Many years later she began having what I call episodes. Hard to explain and the three vets I took her to didn't know what was wrong. Unbearable pain, lasting 1-3 hours. I couldn't let her live that way and I never wanted her to be in pain.....She lived a good life. 2-25-94 to 8-1-06
Everything we went through..I wish I could of done more. There was not a day that went by she didn't make me laugh. Sprite was my baby. I love her so much. And miss her just as much. She gave me a reason to hurry home. Everytime greeting me at the door. Licking my legs dry after my shower. Sprite kept me grounded. And after all that has been done I don't think I will ever know who needed who more.
