Our Beautiful Little Bichon, Chammi, Has Gone To Doggie Heaven


Our beautiful little Bichon, Chammi, jumped onto a twinkling star on Saturday night (September 21) and went up to Doggie Heaven. Waiting for her was Beaji, her beloved companion of a lifetime, whom she had missed so much. Beaji had gone ahead three years ago, much to our sorrow.

Chammi became ill unexpectedly on Friday evening (Sept 20) and was rushed into the Blue Pearl Veterinary Hospital, one of the best in Manhattan. She had suffered a seizure. Our wonderful vet, Dr. Barbara Kalvig was in constant touch with the doctors at the hospital, and with Mohamed, who runs our household, and looks after Chammi when we are away. Chammi was seventeen years old, but with her glossy white fur and sparkling brown eyes she looked like a puppy, and everyone remarked on her beauty.



We were in Los Angeles when this happened, but we caught a plane on Saturday morning and were back in time to say farewell to our darling pet, who had “written” so many books with me. Now, when Bob and I look up at the stars at night we can see Chammi nuzzling Beaji, as she always did. They are reunited at last. We will miss them both, but they will always be in our hearts.

  1. I'm so sorry; I cannot even imagine the depth of your loss. Our household revolves around our 12 year old Bichon, Hannah. We've enjoyed her love and happiness since she was 8 weeks old. Our little girl looks just like your two darlings. They are so full of love and we know there's a person inside. Warm hugs to you both and when I look up to the skies at night, I'll think of your Chammi and Beaji.

  7. After seeing so many pictures of her, I felt Chammi did help you write the books. Her spirit will remain with you. So sorry for your loss.
