Words of Wisdom

Strike a Pose!
I am a Terrier! You got that right!

This site is a memorial to my Puppy, Lady Justice Ari'. I raised this little one for 7 and 1/2 years...since she was just 10 weeks old.  She was a feisty, vocal, high spirited, sassy AKC Certified Wire Hair Fox Terrier.
Justice was born on April 15, 1996 and died tragically on October 14, 2003.  She loved rides in the car; ice cubes; tummy rubs; having her neck scratched...She really loved my Dad and loved to run circles through the house while playing with one could catch her....she was so quick. 
Justice even knew sign language! I taught her hand signals for come, sit, stay, lay down and rollover. My Dad was just starting to teach how to sit up and "say please" was so cute watching them play together. 
We had a special bond and connection.  I miss her so much.

She will really be missed by everyone in our family...
Whenever I whispered "What's that?" she would immediatealy growl and be on guard for the offending person..
Whenever I whispered "Get'em" she was gone; she would growl, obtain her defensive stance and....bark intensely until I told her it was " got'em"...
She was feisty for a little 17-pound Fox Terrier; she didn't know she wasn't a big dog...and, you couldn't tell her she wasn't, either....Gas station attendants, look out...!

Perfectly Groomed
My Mom loves it when I look good....the special treat is coming!

I got "Puppy" from a private breeder. She was the last of the litter and I will never forget the sadness in the son's face when he had to let her go to me.  His eyes were so red, and welling up with tears at the thought of parting with their last little Fox Terrier puppy.  I told them I'd take good care of her and send pictures of her.  It breaks my heart to think of even tellling this family what happened to "Puppy"....How would I tell them what someone did to her?  I still cannot believe this, myself.  I can only imagine the pain they would feel, knowing that one of their own's fate was so tragic.  I'm sure they would wonder why no additional pictures have been sent since we last talked.  Maybe I'll gather the strength to call them, and cry with them, when they hear the news. 

Red Rose, Growing
Lady Justice Ari' was my little rose; always my "Puppy"

A flower in bloom....
growing, blossoming, sharing her beauty with me and everyone else
a beautiful flower, nurtured and cared for by me, my family
uprooted, ripped from the soil without a chance to say goodbye
snatched from life....ripped from existence
yet her fragrant memory still lives on in my heart

Psalm 37:
Fret not thyself because of evildoers for the Lord laughs at them for he sees that their day is coming

Our Favorites

Justice's favorite things were:

drinking lots, I mean LOTS of water
playing with my Dad
going for rides in the car in her seat, at her window
playing with her monkey
playing with her socks
playing with her other toys
sitting on my lap
getting lots of petting and hugs and snuggles from me
curling up on her "blankie" (I covered her up with a section of her "blankie" in her casket, along with her toys)
She loved it when I had just taken her favorite Mickey Mouse "blankie" out of the dryer and couldn't wait for me to lay it down for her to curl up in a circle and snuggle with it.  The picture at the top of this page shows Puppy with this "blankie". 

One of our favorite stores was PetSmart. That's where we bought most of her toys and other, you know, puppy things...

gone too soon, but in my heart forever
whatever is done in darkness shall come to light
