Yesterday our beloved Springer Spaniel, Xan, went to the Rainbow Bridge and was reunited with her adopted mother and mentor, Bryn who passed in January.
She was born Sept. 1, 1999 and passed Sept. 2, 2012. She was so tiny at 8 weeks when we brought her home, Jim could hold her in his hands.
She spent her first 5 years in Seattle and the last 8 here in Tucson. She welcomed all of the greyhounds who we have fostered and she helped to teach them house manners and how to trust and love people.
Saturday was a celebration of her birth 13 years ago, and now we are grieving our sad loss. She is survived by her greyhound, sisters Fiona and Violet, her brothers Bodhi and Conan all at home, her litter-mate brother Huck and Uncle Tom in Seattle and her cousin Zoe in Tucson. Also survived by her people family, Dale & Jim at home and Phil and Charlie in Seattle.
Xan, your passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts, and you will never be forgotten, “Ms. Wiggles.”
