~rip sweet chopper~
chopper was a 15 year old chihuahua-cross whose papa was pieter knoetze of johannesburg, south africa. chopper was found wandering the city streets, cold and alone and was later rescued by pieter. they were like two happy peas in a pod – companions in life – and had the most amazing bond for 8 years. sadly, chopper has crossed over the rainbow bridge due to old age, but he will forever be remembered and loved by pieter and his family. we love you chopper!
i lost a treasured friend today
the little dog who used to lay
his gentle head upon my knee
and share his silent thoughts with me…
he’ll come no longer to my call
retrieve no more his favorite ball
a voice far greater than my own
has called him to his golden throne.
although my eyes are filled with tears
i thank him for the happy years
he let him spend down here with me
and for his love and loyalty
when it is time for me to go
and join him there, this much i know…
i shall not fear the transient dark
for he will greet me with his bark.

here is a heartwarming few words about joey as told by sarah steward from essex, england…
we took joey into our family from a relative when he was about 4 months old. we already had an older border collie named stan and a half jack russell rescue chihuahua named bella that joey adored. when he first laid eyes on hera, they instantly fell in love and from then were joined at the hip. aren’t they just adorable all snuggled up below?
i know that everyone who owns a chihuahua thinks theirs is the cutest, but i can honestly say i have never walked a dog that everybody was drawn to. young girls would say, “aww he’s just like the chihuahua in beverly hills chihuahua!”
joey loved his walks. he was walked twice daily with all his cousins that were a range of different breeds from jack russell’s to miniature schnauzers. we would walk to local woodlands and parks, sometimes for a couple of hours at a time and he never wanted to be carried.
earlier this year we took joey to the beach and he absolutely loved it! we also took him and all his cousins to devon, west england and he enjoyed the beaches there as well.
there are many wonderful stories involving joey i could tell, but i think the thing we love to remember most were the cute games he played with bella. they played hide and seek and when she found him we’d say “go hide joey!”, and he would hide or scoot under the bed covers.
our little joey was a very unique little boy that woke up each morning happy and lived a joyous and eventful life. i appreciate the opportunity to share these happy moments of his life with everyone who reads this. he truly was a very special little pup who will never be forgotten.
i’m going to miss you so much my baby boy… bless your sweet innocent heart.
r.i.p. in heaven’s rainbow bridge. mama loves you forever…
