March 2004, 10 years, 8
We miss you so much! You have definitely left your 'paw prints' on Mommy, Daddy, Amber,
and Jason's hearts. We will always remember the laughs and joy you brought to our lives.
We hope you are having fun in Heaven! We love you!
Thornton - March 2004, 7 months old
In loving memory of my sweet Bruno. I miss you more than
you will ever know. Now I have nobody to cuddle with every morning and
nobody to snuggle under the covers at night. I have never in my life
felt more pain than when I found you lifeless. As I lay on the side of
the road holding you screaming I couldn't think of anything other than
the thought I would never get to play with you again or take you to the
park and let everyone tell you how absolutly cute you were. You were
everything on earth to me and you will never be replaced as nothing
will ever be my Bruno. I love you, Daddy's little boy!
Maggie Magster - March 2004, 7 years old
Maggie Magster, you were the sweetest, most loving
little beautiful red dachshund. It's been a little more than 24 hours
since you left us and I haven't been able to stop crying yet. Puppy
misses you desperately, too, he's been looking high and low for you.
Sleep tight, litle girl. Thanks for being our dog.
Natalie - March 2004, 10 years, 10 months old
My beloved Natalie,
You breathed your last breath yesterday with Mom and me by your side. It
was the most painful thing I have ever experienced... I will always be
thankful that we were with you when you travelled to the Rainbow Bridge. I
know you were greeted with wagging tails from your dachshund brothers,
sisters and cousins (some you never knew) Rommel, Padre, Brandy, Aggie and
Winnie as well your non-dachshund friends Beau, Kisses, Teddy and
You will forever be missed. You will always be thought of as our first
child. What a wonderful friend and companion you were... you gave us so
much more love and enjoyment than any human deserves. You were wonderful
to your human brother and sister who aren't old enough to understand why
you didn't come home with me yesterday... I'm plenty old but really don't
I'm know strawberry ice cream will never taste as sweet without you here
to share it with me.

To our beloved Arthur. Mere words could never express
how much we love you, and how much you are missed. For 15 years you
filled our lives with such love, joy, and happiness. Our hearts are
broken and there is an emptiness deep inside our souls that will never
We will carry the memories of the wonderful years we had you with us
until the end of time. We'll see you again some day, wait for us.
Sissy is there to take care of you until that time, and you take care

Chillie Dog - March 2004, 13 years, 20 days old
Chillie, you made me smile; you made me worry; you made
me proud; you made me care; you made me laugh; and now, as you enter
heaven, you make me cry. You will live on in my heart forever.
Emily Louise (Baby Lou-Lou) - March 2004, 17 years, 6 months old
To my exquisite Emily,
I could not have asked for a more loyal and perfect companion for the
past 17 and-a-half years. I cannot believe that you're really gone,
because there are so many memories I have of us and it feels like
you're still here with me. It broke my heart to lose you but I know
why you held on for such a long time. You did so for me, which only
showed how loyal of a friend you were and how strong our bond was.
From the first minute I saw you when you were a few days old, I knew
you and I were going to be inseparable. I know I will see you again
someday and we will be together forever.
Sweetie Kins Caballero - March 2004, 13 years, old
Sweetie, you have been very much loved by those of us who
were lucky enough to get to know you well, especially me and Benny.
It's been hard to try to write about you. Nothing I say could describe just
how wonderful you were. Sweetie, I've always thought of you as my perfect
little girl, my treasure. I loved everything about you! Your sweetness, your
stubbornness, your intelligence, and especially your intuitiveness. You
could read my mind! Remember when I thought about taking you to work with
me? I decided it wasn't a good idea after all, but you had read my mind and
refused to let me out the door without you that day! I'm so glad because we
had a wonderful time! And how you would spoil me. You knew how I loved it
when you licked my feet! I wish I had had more time to give to you so that I
could have taken you for more car rides and walks. You were always so
patient as I took care of the needs of the others. Maybe you are with Lilly
now, playing together and watching over the rest of us. I will miss you
dearly until we are together again forever. I love you with all my heart and
soul, Sweetie Kins.

Mistypup - March 2004, 11 years, 6 months old
Mistypup was our first dachshund. I'm still crying over
her losing her and thought she would be around a lot longer. She was
diagnosed with cancer in November 2003 and it was quite a shock. She was
an absolutely perfect dog and we will miss her forever and nothing can
replace her. We have a dachshund puppy now, six months old, that
Mistypup got to meet for a little while and kept her around for a little
longer. She played with the pup and started eating again but then it was
too much for her to keep on. We want another one in September that was
her color of black and tan but it will never be like her. We had
Mistypup cremated and she has a beautiful memorial spot in our dining
room on a table my son made that we turn an angel light on everynight.
We miss you and will remember you forever.
Maureen, Dean, Jeff, Tim and Misty and the rest of the family that knew
Here is a poem I wrote the night Mistypup went to Rainbow Bridge. The
new puppy's name is Scarlett and I was compelled to write a poem from
Mistypup to her.
A Letter to Scarlett from Mistypup
If my paw could write, this is what I would say -
Thank you for teaching me again how to play.
You've got a good home, trust me I know -
I will always remember where ever I go.
You put life back into me for a little while.
If I was human, it sure would be a smile.
Now take care of my family and give them my love.
I appreciate everything they did for me here from above.
I'm sure you will learn right paw, left paw -
It's not very hard...just give it your all!
(The puppy has learned this already)
I'm sure glad Jeff (my son Jeff) was home to take care of me
To help me get through the pain I would see.
Now take care of Mom, Dad and Jeff, Scarlett O'Hara.
I leave this role in your paws now with much love and
Muffy - March 2004, 12 years, 10 months old
You meant the whole world to us and our hearts ache with sorrow. What it meant
to lose you no one will ever know. I hope you are in a better place now at
Rainbow Bridge. Someday we will
be together again.

Little guy left my heart as the bravest Doxie
I've owned. He was my second mini. My first lived to be 16 and
died of old age. Not Little guy - he came into our lives as a
eight-week-old dappled black/tan and silver from Alaksa after a
seven hour flight in the summer heat. Then, four years later, he
ruptured his back dics. The vet said it was the worst he had
seen in 15 years. Hours later he came through and dragged
himself back to walking in two months.Then his daddy had a heart
attack so he nursed him back to health by taking him for
mile-and-a-half walks. Then last July he lost his daddy to a
stroke. Brave Little Guy was doing fine helping me when March he
has six seizures in six hours. The vets stopped the seizures but
he paced for ten days. There was nerve damage to his spine and
brain so I gave him my love as I held him to sleep. And he never
showed pain until the end. Such a brave, strong Little
Hillary - March 2004, 13 years old
It has been a year and we still grieve for her. May she
rest in peace. Her spirit lives on.
