Floppy was born with a condition called "Cerebellar Hypoplasia" which is a congenital
birth defect. What this means is that she couldn't keep her balance on her feet, therefore she fell over onto her
side. She may have taken longer to get to one place or another but managed it.
After she was born one of the vets suggested to my mama & papa that they put her
to sleep right away. Boy was she glad they didn't take that suggestion! She took special vitamins in my food
to keep me strong & healthy.
Because of her condition we took her places with them in the car. She
got to go to parades, visit schools, nursing homes & I guess get spoiled because of the way God made her. Everyone
was so touched by her and enjoyed seeing her in her special necklaces and hats.
Floppy lived a long and happy 12 1/2 years. She got cancer earlier in the
year and was on different medications. She was perky and loving right to the very end. She passed away peacefully
between mom & dad Wednesday morning.
We will never ever forget our Floppy who gave us unconditional love. She
leaves a deep hole in our hearts. The only saving grace is that we are confident that she will be up in heaven with
the angels and God awaiting us (on all four feet) when it is our time to leave this world.
Thank you Floppy for all the wonderful memories. We love you forever.
