You were a wonderful friend and confidant. I will miss you
forever. Rest in peace my darling boy, free from the ravages
of IVDD. Look for Lady and Napoleon and wait for me with
FLY (for my Monty)
Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again
Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this memory bittersweet
Until we meet
Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget
Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light
Mummy will miss you. Until we meet again.
Love and kisses

Widget - April 2006, 10 years old
My poor baby got up this morning and her back
legs had gone completely. She couldn't walk and the vet said
there was nothing he could do - she was too old. So there was
nothing for it but to say goodbye.
She was true dachs - brave, faithful, feisty and a real
character. She has a place in my heart that nothing will ever
replace. She came from a dog's home aged six where she had been
for two years - nobody wanted her because she had an 'attitude
problem'. All she wanted was to be loved, and I couldn't have
loved her more. She repaid me a thousand times over with her
total devotion. I will miss her so much. Goodbye my darling
Widget, sleep well x
Shiloh Moreau - April 2006, 5 years, 5 months old
My beautiful little girl died in my arms this
morning. Never have I felt anything so painful in my entire
life. Just a few short days ago she was diagnosed with
'intervertebral disc disease' and lost the use of her hind end.
Her bladder and bowels were next to go. Surgery was not an
option. She was only five years old and the light of our life.
Rest in peace my little sweetheart who brought such joy into
Lady Tigger - April 2006, about 4 years old
Lady Tigger came into my life three years ago.
She was found running the street in and out and under cars. I
brought her home and no one ever claimed her. She was a
beautiful black and tan minature with so much love to offer.
She soon became a part of our family. She was loved by all, her
Mama, Daddy and her doxie brother and sister. She is sadly
missed by all. The thing that keeps me going is knowing that
she is waiting at the Rainbow Bridge with my other dachshund
babies who have gone on ahead.
Trixie - April 2006, 6 years old
Trixie I will always miss you. Twenty years from
now we will still be thinking about you.
Heidi Sands - April 2006, 14 years, 6 months old
My Heidi was my life for almost the last 15
years. She way right there with love as I was divorced. God
blessed me so much with her I will never forget her. I miss her
so much but am so happy she is not in pain
Connie Olivia - April 2006, 11 years old
Connie - my heart is broken to know that you
have left us. You were so tiny and helpless when you first came
to our family. You grew with our little Katie who loved you so
much. Your loyalty and love will always be remembered by us. I
will miss you forever.
Velvet - April 2006, 9 years, 3 months old
Velvet was a red miniature long-haired dachshund.
We brought her home when she was only six weeks old. She was
small enough to fit in one hand. For nine years now she has been
my family's baby and my mother's constant companion. Every time
we went on vacation she went with us. She was a very smart,
sweet, and curious dog who loved to play and had an obsession
with milk bones. On Sunday she stopped eating and wouldn't walk.
On Monday we took her to the vet and found out she had a very
large splenic mass. There wasn't anything they could do.
Although we didn't want her to go, it was the best thing for
her. She was put to sleep and it was very peaceful. She kissed
my mom and me goodbye and wagged her tail and we held her while
she passed away. There is a void in our home and our hearts that
will never be filled. We love you Velvet very much and we'll
never forget you. Sleep good baby girl.
Love Always, Kristen, Kara, and Mom

I love you so much.
I miss your nose poking at me to wake up in the morning. I
long again to see your determined anticipatory face as you
peered out the window looking for me to come home.
The house is so still without you here.
Each time the blinds flutter, I think it is you. At dinner,
I still look down to give you a bite. I anticipate you
being underfoot when I walk and search to find you at my
feet when I'm sitting in my chair. I wish you were still
here with all the gleeful mischief in your eyes you always
Thank you for the all the years you shared with me. I will
always treasure them and will store the memories of our life
together forever in my heart.
Maggie Sausage - April 2006, 6 years, 5 months old
Always to be remembered...
You were my first beloved dachsie, you were the start of my
breed kennel, you were my life, my everything! May you
finally rest in peace and have no pain.
Maggie, you will forever be in my heart and I'm sure I am in
yours. And right now you watch over us and guide us...you
will forever be with us. Wait patiently for us at the
Rainbow Bridge, where Jellybean has now joined you. Until we meet again my sausage...I love
Katee Cass - April 2006, 4 years, 3 months old
Katee was a silver dapple that could sing
like a coyote. She was very sweet and loyal. She went to
the doggie heaven after having surgery on her back. We miss
and love her very much. She will always be in our
Dutch Boyett - April 2006, 15
My brother, Dutch, was bought for my
other brother in April of 1991. He was a standard size
and red. He quickly became my mother's dog and was a
very loving, and protective dog. Over the years we all
grew very close to him and we had nothing to worry
about because if someone he didn't know came to the
house he would not let them in. He and I had our fights
and he would chase me up on the counter but in the end
we would be playing and laughing very soon.
After my bother and I got married and moved out of the
house he and my mom became very close due to my dad
working out of state a lot. He was my mom's only
company. In the mornings when he got up he would go
outside and do his thing but when he came in he knew it
was time for his morning loving. He would sit in my
mom's lap for hours as if he was protecting her. And
then one day my mom called me at work crying, and I
rushed over. He had had a seizure and when he woke up
up he was trying to bite her and she couldn't move to
get away from him. He finally came around and he was
the same as he had always been, loving. She took him to
the vet only to find that he had congestive heart
failure. He was put on medication. But the seizures
continued and then he couldn't eat because he couldn't
breathe while he ate. So the time came and we had to
put him to sleep. The whole family was there with him
to say goodbye. My mother has had the hardest time
though because for so long it was just her and him. He
was my brother and I miss him very much, but I know he
is in heaven doing what he loved most-chasing squirrels
and hunting. Goodbye Dutch. Ee miss you very
