After reading a pet tag that appeared on LFBooks who got the tag from carlaslovestoread in 2018, I posted a similar article regarding our Bichon Frisé, Frosty Dancer Nampa Dandy, born tomorrow, January 24, 2006 in Idaho. Discovering that a Bichon rescue wanted a dog already in the home, we opted to get a puppy from Margie, who at the time was lovingly and carefully selecting both dams and sires. Frosty stepped up to greet me when I first went to look at the litter of five (two females and three males). And there’s your “insta-love.”
A companion dog, she went everywhere with us, our tours in the RV, walking trails in the deserts of California and Arizona, parks and camping, riding on the back of our motorcycles. She was very easy to travel with and at 12 ½ lbs didn’t demand a lot of space unless it was bedtime. Smart, she was very quick to learn all kinds of tricks and commands; no problem to house train.
Always ready to play, she preferred retrieving a ball or toy (whatever you had to throw) to treats. I say “was” because at seventeen she is currently struggling with pneumonia and even walking is taking some effort. She’s been a sick puppy and watching her decline is heartbreaking. She is sleeping a lot now. I won’t be able to post an obituary when she crosses that rainbow bridge, so this will be my tribute to her.
Frosty has been an amazing part of our family. Our fur babies leave us too soon and with a heavy heart but we’ve been blessed with her and will treasure the memories.
