Our beloved yorkie, Fee-Fee Sun, left us today at around 1pm. He was 6 years old and 5 and a half pounds. It was an accident. He was at his favorite park, Washington Square, with his favorite pink toy, and he was attacked by a bigger dog. The big dog picked Fee-Fee up and twisted his neck, which fractured his vertebrate instantly. We rushed him to Marina Animal Hospital in a cab, I held him closely the entire time and his heart was beating initially but it stopped when we got to the hospital. He was pronounced dead on arrival, an X-Ray was performed to showed his fractured neck. We were told nothing could’ve saved him, but he did not suffer much pain. He will be cremated and we will keep his ashes.
Fee-Fee had a great life. He was well-travelled, he had been to the Twin Cities (MN), Austin, Houston, San Antonio, San Marcos, New York City, Carmel, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Napa Valley. He flew on airplanes countless times, since he was 6 months old. Lots of people loved him, and we will always love him and remember him. He looked like he was just asleep when he left us, we just had him groomed and his teeth professionally cleaned so he was looking his best.
His favorite things to do were tommy scratching, licking, sunbathing, playing fetch, joining his daddy and mommy for naps, going to the parks, getting walked, riding cars and sticking his little head out the window, and recently he had enjoyed going to Caffe Sapore to visit his godmother Jen. He was also really good at posing for pictures, a great doggie model. Here’s one in my studio:
It is hard to believe that he is not with us anymore, and that he died so easily. He woke us up this morning and I fed him his usual food, walked him down to a Chinese dim sum place and got some breakfast to-go. Sherry and I fed him yummy dim sum and he loved it.
Please take a moment to give your love ones (pets and people!) a hug, say something sweet to them, don’t take anything or anyone for granted. Fee-Fee had brought us so much joy and happiness, and he kept me company during the most difficult times. Fee-Fee, rest in peace, and you will be dearly missed. We will always love you.
