Prissy was more than just a companion dog, she touched the hearts of many and will forever live in our hearts. Prissy was our princess, friend, confidant and partner in good and bad moments and was very well loved. Prissy was noble, loving, funny, cute, very, very smart and extremely sensitive she knew when to provide you with comfort or when to make you laugh. I used to say that if she could talk she would be a human. Prissy was my first dog that became totally my responsibility after my Aunt Betty passed away. I remember the first couple of months were a little rough because while I was trying to train her my Aunt Betty was spoiling her all day long; after my aunt passed, Prissy and I became very close. Prissy was rarely more than five feet from my side; she went everywhere she could possibly go with me; she even went with me to Mexico City and also to work on a few occasions.Even that we were apart for a short period, we were still inseparable we went thru a lot together, the loss of her puppies and the loss of our beloved Bernie but we also enjoyed great moments together, like when she fought with the neighbor’s big cat and lost part of her tiny little ear, when she sunbathed with me in the pool on her own floaty or when she was trying to hunt birds or doing her little backward dance to tell me she wanted to go out and of course when she was my companion to all my friends’ gatherings. Few months after I got married, she came to live with me again that’s when she found a very special connection with my husband and I have to confess that at first, I was a bit jealous because she was my little furry baby but at the end, I was happy to know that she was very loved and care for in our home. She would give my husband “the panza”, follow him everywhere he went, wait for him outside the bathroom, and sleep on his side and in his arms. She would also forgive him when he could not put on her hair bows on her fury head by coming back to him over and over again teaching him to put it on right. Prissy went thru a rough period before living with me again and because she wasn’t given the care and dedication she needed she got really sick, but with the help of all the staff of the Deerfield Animal Hospital and the love and care of her family she was able to recover but not at 100%… her health became very fragile. We committed to giving her the best life we could possibly provide for her and keep caring for her until she decided it was her time to go. She spend the last 5 years of her life in a loving home where she had everything she needed and more, where she had to deal with 3 new puppies and become their example. Prissy had a family of humans and dogs that loved her so much and that this past year was always at her side when she had been in and out of the hospital but at the end, she decided it was her time to go and finally rest. It is with sadness that Sieg, Max, Mochi, Rex and I say goodbye to our princess, her presence will be missed but she will live forever in our hearts until we meet again. Prissy, you will never be forgotten. In Loving Memory of Prissy Nadela
