The wife and I have no children so our pets are our kids. Last year we lost 3 pets in a 3 month span so this one really hit us hard. We lost our Miniature Pinscher Ripley today after she suffered from having several strokes. We take very good care of our pets. To give you and idea, my old bird dog "John" had a heated and air conditioner dog house. Ripley broke her neck when she was 3 after jumping off the bed after getting her back claws caught in an afghan blanket and took two surgeries to repair. She lived to 16 years and 6 days which is very rare for a high strung miniature pinscher.
I'm just posting this as a release for me cause I miss her so damn much because she was baby.
She was named after Sigourney Weaver's character in Aliens because she was just as tough and mean to something did not like. She was a one mans dog. :-)))
I just needed to release
