loved and missed by Christine
Crowe Delapp and family
Scarlett came into our lives after
many sad events in our lives. I thought I bought her for my boy
Jasper (my heart & soul dog). Jasper had a BARC female come to
our home as a foster, he adored her. We decided to look for a female
Berner for him. The breeder we had met and were waiting for a female
pup from had to call us and inform us that our pup had died. I had
just lost our pregnancy, our BARC girl had left our home and now the
pup we were hoping for had died. That breeder called on our behalf
to another breeder who had just had a litter. We waited patiently
and then got the great news that we were going to bring home a baby
Scarlett came into our lives, with
such excitement. She brought joy and happiness to our family. Little
did we all know that God had two more surprises for us in the next
two months.... 2 weeks later I found out I was pregnant. Followed by
my boy being diagnosed with spine cancer a month and a half later. I
was in such shock and about to loose my boy. There sitting next to
me was this sweet little girl we named Scarlett. I always thought we
had bought Scarlett for Jasper but it turned out God must of brought
her into our lives for me.
Scarlett, Scarlie, Princess, Pretty
Girl, and Pepe le Pew ( for her Swiss kiss) are just a few names I
When our daughter was born 9 months
later I accidentally called her princess in front of Scarlett, my
God the face she gave me was priceless.
Scarlett became sick just after her
2nd birthday. We had every test under the sun performed to find the
answer to her pain. She was diagnosed with aseptic meningitis. She
fought that terrible disease on and off for 4.5 years. This
disease's treatment is what first damaged my girls kidney's.
Scarlett fought each episode with
such courage and strength. At times she was on 19 pills a day. I
thought I was going to loose her many times over the past 4.5 years
and each time she would shock me and her treating veterinarians.
Anyone who knew Scarlie loved her,
she won over almost all people. She ran this house as our alpha girl
by ruling with kisses and grooming techniques.
I will forever miss her, I adore
everything about her. I was so incredibly blessed to be her mom.
Never once did she try to fill the
shoes of my first Berner, she waited for my heart to begin to heal
and wound up stealing my heart.
Even at the end , she did not want
to leave me but I felt after all her fighting that I needed to give
her the gift of peace.
There will never be another
Scarlett, my Ms. Perfect. Thank you Princess for being such an
amazing girl. Run free, enjoy all the health and peace at the
Rainbow Bridge. I know I will see you and Jasper again someday. I
hope to see my sign that we talked about before you left.
God bless you Scarlett!!!
