Shanny (Shenanigan) - December 2007, 13 and a bit years old
My dear Shanny, I didn't get to say goodbye. I was there for you when you were born. I'm so sorry you left while I was sleeping. Wait for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I know you will be there with your Doxie mamma, Cloudy, and your Uncle Mo and your kitties; Fatima, Chester and Maurice who were at the Bridge to greet you. I will be there before too many years pass by. And thank God that Father Kyle said paradise is what we want it to be. I know you'll be there no longer suffering. I love you Shanny, Mom.
Lulu - December 2007, 7 years, 2 months old
Lulu went to the Rainbow Bridge on 2 December 2007. She was a rescue dog, adopted by our family one day before she was to be euthanised. It was said that she bit her former owner and was brought back to the shelter.
Lulu was a good companion, a good dog and a member of our family. She will be greatly missed by her owner, William, who had been Lulu's boy since she came to live with us in December 2001.
We buried her out in our garden, where she so often lay in the warm sun near the tomatoes. We will miss you so. We hope you are running the hills with Precious at the Bridge.

Corey Denton 1992-2007
8 December 2007 - I lost my sweet Corey this morning. He was my 'Heart Dog', the dog that changes your life, makes you get up smiling every day, and reminds you of all the reasons you do what you do. I adopted Corey from Richardson Humane Society (RHS) just six and a half years ago - a tiny senior stray pulled from a city shelter and fostered by Kathy Edwards, whose generosity and strength inspired me to become a foster - but it seems like he had been with me forever. Corey made lots of friends in RHS, showed many foster dogs who would come to share our home that life would be okay, and made a few petsitters a little nervous until they got to know him. :) It's not as warm at my house tonight without my Corey and his snarfling and his sweet mumbled, grumbled 'stories'. There will never be another Corey... he was one of a kind.
My old friend, this song's for you
'Cause a few simple verses
Was the least that I could do
To tell the world that you were here
'Cause the love and the laughter
Will live on long after
All of the sadness and the tears.
We'll meet again my old friend
Goodbye, my old friend, goodbye.

Popeye, I love and miss you so much! You gave so much with your funny quirky ways. Words fail me, but we had out chats and you understood me as I understood you. You would have been 18 this year, my old man, but you couldn't fight your battles any more. Run free with Khan, Hooch and all your mates that you have met here and in your new home. I'll see you again my sweet angel...
Love, Mum and Gran xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Kirby 'Tucka' Orenstein - December 2007, 15 years old
Kirby was truly a dear friend. He was always there for me, and nursed me when I was ill. He was loyal, friendly, and oh so very smart. He was regal in his life, and even in the end when he was ill, he conducted himself like the king he was. We will never forget Kirby, he is deeply missed, but are grateful for his friendship, love, and loyalty. No one could have asked for better then this great man!! He is at peace, and with his friends, our other great dachsies, who have also gone to a much deserved rest. Rest in Peace, Dear friend...
Love, your Family

Tootie, I still miss you everyday. I didn't even have Christmas the year that you died. You will always be in my heart and I wish I knew then what I know now that I could have done for you. I cry about it everyday. I miss you with all of my heart and there will never be another doxie like you. Can't wait to have you run to me at the Rainbow Bridge. I hope you are the first in line. I love you.
