Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Canine
My beloved Miniature Schnauzer,
Mandorla Angelique Tresor, "Mandy."
She was my haloed angelic treasured friend and I was her
caretaker/companion for ten years.
When all of my girlfriends became married she was there on
many a night
when I did not have a relationship, let alone any
prospective dates, until I met Matthew in my 36th
She was there when my mother traveled and I was left
to take care of the household.
As an only child, I
was never lonely when she was around
even when she was just there laying beside me.
Diabetes was her cruel
fate and part of me feels awful about
not noticing the symptoms until it was too late.
But for the most part
she lived life on her own terms
in a natural, drug free way, and passed peacefully in her
I take great comfort in knowing that she did not suffer
and was taken into God's loving arms on Ash Wednesday.
She would always refuse to walk on a leash and I did not
want to bully her into submission. Ironically, she
naturally heel and walk beside me on many of our walks throughout
she was able to get out of the front door of my home, she
would never go beyond my sight or just take off and run away.
I remember the first time that I saw her, she took to me right way.
She was sick and had kennel cough, my mother
tried to persuade
me to pick another pup, but there was something between her and I
that was in describable. She
had such a spark!
I nursed her back to health and other than one ear infection, she
was never sick a day
in her life, at least in my eyes.
While I was in graduate school, she was the one who had to be patient
created the U.T.O.P.I.A. Project.
When I finally met my soul mate she was the one who
for my return from spending joyous
times with the man I love, designing the
Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's
M.A.G.I.C. Project, or
using my spare time to learn about the business world
design a Business Plan, and build
Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. into a thriving organization.
I always thought that I would be able to have
more time in the
future to be with her. I was wrong.
She brought a tremendous amount of joy into my life and
not trade those moments for the ache in my heart right now.
I feel blessed to have been chosen to
be her caretaker/companion
and I knew that I was meant to be her caretaker/companion,
because at first my
mom said, “No” ,to bringing her home,
then my mother's dog, Cleo, died of kidney failure, and my
mother said that she "missed the pitter patter of little feet."
She suggested that we go back and
get her, but it had been several
weeks, so I figured she was already taken by someone else, but
she was still there,
and the moment I returned to the pet store, she sat
up all perky and cute the same way she did the first time I
up to her and I said "Hi little one, we're back and we've come to take you home."
My fondest memory of her was when she was a puppy.
She had taken an entire roll of paper towels and shredded
into pieces throughout my bedroom.
After we returned from an outing, I opened the door to
find my precious
haloed angelic treasure sitting right
in the middle, hundreds of pieces of shredded paper towel
to look like snow.
She had a "yeah can I help you , I am a little busy right now,"
look on her beautiful
face. My mother and I laughed so hard.
I still hope to find the photo that we took that day.
I sat down
on the floor picked up a huge handful of shreds
and tossed it into the air. She started to jump up, bark, and
around the room. We enjoyed every moment of her creative
snowfall that day.
She managed to make it snow in
the desert, and that was quite a feat.
If I had $100,000, I would set it aside right now, and use the
off of it in one year to build the
Mandolra Angelique Tresor Chapter of
Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. for my
beloved Heaven's Miraculous Angelic Giving Inspirational Canine
would ask that the members of that chapter dedicate their service
towards Service-Learning projects that support diabetes.
I would display a photo collage of my precious, loyal, loving,
friend, and the world would become a better
of a special unique soul, Mandorla Angelique Tresor, "Mandy"
Heaven's Miraculous Angelic
Giving Inspirational Canine.
As I elementary educator, I will have to settle for this poem below,
that I created
to honor her for now, but I will pray that a
Theresa's Fund Loves Heaven's M.A.G.I.C. Chapter
day bear her name.

Ash Wednesday 2008
You were always
loyal, loving, and kind.
I wish you and I could have had more time.
I remember when you first caught my eye.
Now that you’re gone, tears well up, I cry.
We had to settle
for only one decade.
that time, a strong and loyal bond we made.
I will always cherish my memories of you.
Your love was beautiful, wonderful, and true.
You’re in a place where you will
never feel pain.
soul and spirit will renew once again.
You were a spirit unique and free.
Happy go lucky, and full of glee.
So patient with my every wish
I’ll miss your little puppy kiss
You radiated love and grace.
No one could ever take
now far apart
live forever in my heart
The joy you brought into my life
will always outweigh my pain in the end.
Until the day we will meet once again.
Farwell, my precious, special, loving, friend
I will love you forever,
Precious Bootie Scaputie
angelic treasured friend.
