Jazzi’s Taco Monday – For You My Friend

Huum. What's this yellow thing? Filled with green beans? I'd better grab it quick. And investigate.

Huum. What’s this yellow thing? Filled with green beans? I’d better grab it quick. And investigate.

My pal, Miss Jazzi, is running free today. She had some things wrong with her that came on suddenly. She was only 8-1/2 years young. Many of you know her. She was always telling tales and making me laugh. And boy did she love tacos! (Did you ever know a Scottie to love tacos? No. You. Did. Not.)

To her peeps and all of her friends and family, this one’s for you. I’m eating a taco in your honor today, Jazzi.

PIZZA! And my favorite biscuits! YUM! Thanks Miss Jazzi!

PIZZA! And my favorite biscuits! YUM! Thanks Miss Jazzi!

Jazzi sent me this pizza toy during a gift exchange back in 2011. Boy did I love that thing. I played with it all the time until I tore it up!! Along with it, she sent me some chewies to eat. She was so thoughtful. And kind. Thank you, Jazzi.

I’m so sad. So very sad.


I think I’ll just sit and think today. About my friends who’ve left us. And about the peeps they left behind. I’ll try to think about all the good things and happy things about having my friends around rather than think about the sad stuff.

Those who are left behind are the sad ones. The ones who go before us are running when they couldn’t walk, eating when they had trouble, and having such a good time when once they were diseased and sick.

I wonder if they miss us? I know we miss them. Terribly. I’m sad to think they’re missing us who are left behind. Oh boy…I’ve worked myself into a bad state. Gotta get myself outta this. OK. When they leave us behind, we’re sad. But they’re waiting for us. Patiently. Remembering all the good stuff. And they’re happy. OK. That makes sense. Feeling better now.

I miss you Jazzi.

    Oh darling Stu ..we did not know Jazzi but indeed to read so many lovely things in peeps posts makes us sad we did not know her..do not work yourself up my sweet..we all keep them with us by telling their stories ..funny sad and cute…and by this they always stay by our side..right next to our heart…and indeed the rainbow bridge is always made brighter and brighter by a new friend that we lose and it gains..so take heart sweet one….sadness means they left a mark..what a gift to leave such emotions behind…loves Fozziemum xx

    That meant so much Stuart. JAzzi would have loved it. Im sure she is smiling down for sure. She has left a void here, we are in shock still and miss her terribly. Thanks for your kind words, they mean so much. We will still have National Taco day in Jazzi’s honor, she would have wanted that.
    Your friend

    It’s only about 40 more days until Jazzi Taco Day! I have to have the low-fat variety but Jazzi would approve. I’ll do it up right. By that time the shock will be gone and I’ll have the realization that she won’t be around anymore. I’m gonna use it to not be sad but to celebrate who she was. 2014 was a bad year for us old Scottie broads. First Daisy in February and now this.

  4. Ranger says:

    I feel your pain. I miss Jazzi.

  5. We’re sad for you Stuart….it’s always very hard to lose a good friend….We didn’t know Jazzi but she sounds like a sweetie – anyone who loves tacos had to be special! Smile Stuart….she’s running free in a field of flowers and of course she thinks of you AND all her friends and family. They watch us – they keep us safe – they wait for us to join them when our time comes!

    Hugs, Sammy

    I agree, this is such a sad time. I was stunned to hear of Jazzi’s passing! I definitely gave my two a few extra kisses and hugs. You Scotties are with us such a short time and make our lives so much better. We really have to make the most of every single moment. Thanks for the sweet words and tribute to her Stuart.

  7. We agree with Fozzimum Stuart. It has been a rough week-end losing Sparkle and Jazzi both unexpectedly. We are going to be happy today and remember only things that make us smile about our friends. In honor of you friend Jazzi tonight we are going to have Mom make tacos! We love you Stuart!
    Marty and Mom

    She gave the world lots and lots of special memories.
    Thanks for sharing your life with so many others.

  15. Sometimes it seems like too many of our buddies leave us – Mom says it is the curse of loving us – we don’t live as long 😦

  16. theguster says:

    We are so sorry to hear about Miss Jazzi. Our hearts are heavy for you, it is always so hard to lose a friend, but we must remember all the fun and happiness their friendship brought us.
    We know that Miss Jazzi wouldn’t want you to be sad for long, Stuart. She will always be in your heart and you will be in hers. That’s what friendship does.
