14 years is a long time to have a best friend...especially a furry one as cute as this.
Ami is my sis-in-law Diana's sweet little baby. Well, she started out as Di's, but the minute she met Adam...she became "their" doggie.
It was easy to fall in love with Ami. She was a tiny little fur ball that fit in the palm of your hand but she had the sass and feistiness of a dog 10 times her size. Everyone was nuts about her...even Howie.
Di and Adam always like to joke that Ami was just a "crabby old lady", but she was the most patient and tolerant little thing you have ever met.
She loved being held (by adults) and everyone always wanted to take their turn. My Dad had a HUGE soft spot for Aimers.
And the girl could dress!! She has cuter clothes than I do. Ha!
For the past few years, our spunky little Ami has been dealing with some health issues. For at least the last three Christmases, Di has swore that it was Ami's last. But that little peanut just kept on fighting and living. She gave Di 14 wonderful years of love and friendship, and she gave our family 8 of those years.
But sadly, Ami went to heaven today. She passed away in her Mommy's arms...the way that all doggies should go.
We like to think that Ami is in heaven today, playing with her old buddy Fattie and peeing on the rug. We are all going to miss her so very much, but we are thankful to have had so much time with her sweet furry face.
Rest in peace, old lady. We love you with all our hearts.
