August 20th, 1997 – November 2nd, 2013
He came into our lives with his brother in 2007 from WRC. They both brought such joy, unconditional love, companionship, and happiness for 6 years.
On November 2nd it was with very heavy hearts that we had to let Teddi go. He lived to the ripe old age of 16 years, 3 months. He beat lung cancer for a little over a year, but another tumour grew.
We were heartbroken . . . our tears still flow . . . Teddi was “special” – an old soul, a mini human in a dog’s body . . . he communicated . . . he was intelligent and he “got it” . . .
He made us laugh & tested our patience . . . for he could be a “little bugger”, especially when it came to food. He just loved to eat . . . he was a foodie!
Teddi loved his walks, the garden and lying in the sun, and loved to be held, for he truly was a lap dog. He was the alpha male, tough and strong,bossing his brother around, but loveable & adorable, all at the same time.
Teddi lived with conviction . . . his disposition and mannerisms uncanny,his sense of self worth well beyond.
He was a “true character” and “he knew it”, and played it for all it was worth.
His passion for life -strong . . . his heart of gold - massive and enduring . . . Teddi was truly intoxicating.
His love for his adoptive family, Greg, his dad; Rose & Ron, his grandma and grandpa; Darlene & Joe, his aunt and uncle was undeniable and beyond measure. He gave so much . . . and we gained even more.Teddi was “cherished” and will forever live on in our hearts. We gather strength from memoriesand feel blessed to have had him as a member of our family.
Teddi, “run like the wind” with Billie over the rainbow bridge . . . we miss and thank you both for your loyalty, friendship,and unwavering, unconditional love.
We are all better people for have, having the privilege of you both in our lives.
