We miss you dearly, “Little Peepers!”
If “little man” syndrome had ever applied to a dog, that would be our “Little Peepers,” Cleopatra! She was 150 pounds of guard dog in a 7 pound body. The treasure she was guarding was her Mama. She was my shadow, and constant friend. Cleopatra also had a big heart and soft-spot for her brother, Dante and her PaPa, but would only show them when I wasn’t home! She was one of the sweetest and funniest dogs you could ever meet (IF you were ME that is! …to most people she mostly only showed her “sassy” side!) Cello loved to “play” with Cleopatra….which Cleopatra did not find as entertaining as Cello did. However that never deterred Cello’s desire to love her sister. Cello was the playful sister that Cleopatra loved, but sometimes never wanted! Cleopatra will always hold a special place in our hearts. We love and miss her every day.
One of my favorite pictures of Cleopatra:
