Cailíni (Colleen-Y) means little girl in Irish Gaelic. We chose that name because she would never be a big girl. When we adopted her she weighed 3 lbs 9 ozs, and at her heaviest weighed just over 7 lbs. She touched our lives in the first few days in such endearing ways, and she will never be forgotten.
You may choose a pet, but sometimes that pet chooses its human, and Nee Nee chose me. She slept beside me every night, followed me everywhere I went, and quickly became the biggest piece of my heart. She absorbed all my tears, was a great listener, and loved unconditionally. When we started looking for a dog I had wanted a Yorkie. We found instead a long haired, cream/gold, micro mini Dachshund. She was so small, yet she never knew that. She was tough, fearless, and brave. I didn't like Doxies till her, and know I will never find another like her.
She had one brown eye, and one that was half blue. She was magical, and protective. I will never have another friend/furbaby like her. I will always mourn the loss of her, and celebrate her life. She will always be with me.
