Sniglet Came to Visit

Sniglet came to visit last week. She was confused.

If you’re new to The Scottie Chronicles, Sniglet was Stuart’s “Gal Next Door”. The two of them loved each other. They dug holes and ripped the bottom of the fence apart so they could come and go as they pleased into each other’s back yard. They’d gnaw on each other’s legs. Bite each other’s face and generally have a good ‘ole time. Every single day.

Every single day.

So I can only imagine what’s going on next door. If Stuart’s passing is completely devastating for us, it’s traumatic for Sniglet. And her roommate, Mama Kitty, and her peep, Auntie Meredith.

She was glad to see us and stayed for a few nights. I thought it would be awful, but it wasn’t. There’s just something about an animal in your life that, well, makes things better.

Their eyes are soulful. Their very presence is a gift.

Don’t worry Sniglet, I’m just as confused as you are. Taking one day at a time.

    Poor Sniglet.💔 She must be so confused and lonely, too. Your post was both touching and so true. Sniglet will be included in our prayers for you and the dad peep as you all heal, one day at a time.

    I think Sniglet knows. Dogs have such an inner sense in what is going on.

    have been worried about singlet also. happy to see she was able to visit.

  14. We are glad Sniglet came to visit and could stay over with you, as she must be mourning too. We like to think of them creating their own passageway between your houses. A great visual of all the digging and fence re-arrangement. You have wonderful neighbors, and a four footed friend who needs you too.

    • You’re so right. Actually, it was she who pulled the bottom part of the fence off. Just big enough for her and just right for Stuart. Then, he dug under in at least two places. Just to keep all of us guessing about how he got over in her back yard. It’s nice to smile at memories. Maybe one day, there’ll be more smiles than tears.

  15. Poor Sniglet. She’s gotta be missin Stu too.

  16. Poor Sniglet. At least you have each other. I’m sure she can sense your sadness and maybe she finds comfort in it. *ear licks* Noodle

    Mommy’s eyes are leaking for little Sniglet. And Stuart. And Miss Deita. 😥
    Hopefully both you and Sniglet will benefit from some extra love and doggie kisses.

    Awwww, Sniglet! We were wondering how she was taking all of this. You are so right about how wonderful it is having a Furry Baby around the house! They ARE a GIFT like you said, of pure Soulful Joy! I’m so happy that you enjoyed taking care of Dear Sniglet!
    Give her a great Big Kiss for us!
    Love, Wags, and licks,
    Riley- Puppy and Tessie-Girl and Mum
