Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one is a life diminished.
– Dean Koontz
We are very blessed to share our lives with 3 amazing dogs. Wally, our Golden Retriever, is the love of my life. If he were human, he would be my soul mate. We fostered him for 8 years but now he is all ours. He has the most gentle personality and he always has to be with me no matter where I go (yes….even in the bathroom). It doesn’t matter if I get paged in the middle of the night and I have to sit in my cold, dark den and work for a couple of hours, he is always there lying at my feet…keeping them warm.
Tilly joined our family on 2010 March 12. She is a ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel born on 2009 December 22nd. It is wonderful to have a small breed dog in our lives again. She became a certified Pet Therapy Dog in 2015.
Spirit joined our family on 2015FEB04. She is a Bernese Mountain Dog. Our hope is to do Pet Therapy, Carting and whatever else she enjoys.
Gone…..but never forgotten
Tango was a foster dog that was being training to be a Guide Dog. Unfortunately she had too much of an “A” type personality. When she flunked out of school at 18 months old, we adopted her. She hung around the house for a few years and then we got involved in Search and Rescue. She was born to do the job. She had an amazing nose and total focus for the job. When she was 9 we discovered that she had Degenerative Myelopathy (DM). It is basically the canine equivalent of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). She put up a brave fight but on November 1st, 2014 we made the heart breaking decision to free her from her DM nightmare. Until we meet again my beautiful girl…..
