Rosemary for remembrance...
Pansies for heart's ease.
Wimpy - November 2002, 12 years,
10 months old
God saw you were getting tired
and a cure was not to be...
So He put His arms around you
and whispered, "Come with me."
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating...
A special dog was put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us...
He only takes the best.

I only had her for a week. She died from parvo. I will
miss her always.
- November 2002, 15 years old
George was a very special, unique, and truly regal
dachshund - and the very first dog I ever adopted.
He's been with me since I was 18 and he has celebrated the good times
with me and comforted me through the trying times. Now, as I bid him
farewell as he leaves us for the Rainbow Bridge, he is not here to
I am grateful that his kidney problems no longer bother him and that he
will be reuinted with his little buddy, Joey, whom we lost in March of
I'll never forget how excited he and Joey were when we moved into our
new home seven years ago - how they both ran around the uncarpeted
floors and explored the undeveloped back yard. They were truly kinds
of their new castle. I'll also always remember lovingly how George
loved to ride in the car and poke his head out the window. Wind in his
hair was a favorite activity and he did it regally.
I love you, George, with all of my heart. Thank you for 15 wonderful
years. May God bless you and welcome you into his kingdom of heaven and
may you know only happiness and peace and may you be reuinted with Joey
forever. With God's blessing, I pray that we meet you at the Rainbow
Bridge one day and cross over into God's kingdom of heaven
You will always be in our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers. And
you will be sorely missed always.

Sarge Harvey -
November 2002, 11 months old
Sarge was a wonderful member of our family. My husband.
our two girls, and I enjoyed him for the short amount of time that he
was in our home. He was energetic, happy, loving, silly, playful and
sweet. He gave us more joy than he could have ever known. He was
stricken with an auto immune disease and passed away on 9 November
2002. We will always miss him. We know that he is no longer suffering
and is playing with his favorite ball in doxie heaven. God Bless
Schlecht - November 2002, 4 years old
Schnitzel was a black-and-tan dachshund. He weighed 10
to 12 pounds but acted as if he was 120 pounds. This dog was the pride
of the family and he knew it. I believe that he would try anything for
us. His love of the family was also the cause his death. When some
large dogs entered our property he protected our children from the dogs
and paid the ultimate price. For his actions and valour we will always
remember this dear little dog and he has carved a special place in our
hearts forever. Now the search for a new 'weiner dog' has to begin, but
will not replace our Schnitzel. With loving memories I say good bye to
my special dog.
Ellie a.k.a Little Bit - November 2002, 3 years old
Ellie was nothing short of being an angel. It was almost
as if she knew she wouldn't have enough time here with us to do
anything but offer unconditional, endless love. We will miss her and
are waiting for her spirit to find us again.
Bully - November
2002, 16 years, 4 months old
This is a tribute to Bully, who we adopted on a whim
just over six years ago when we were looking for a puppy. He was the
most good-natured and loving dog in the world. He has been ill several
times since he has been in our care, but a combination of his zest for
life and incredible bravery, and, I like to believe, the power of our
love for him kept him alive to a ripe old age. He was so intelligent;
when you know a dog you can look into his eyes and know what he's
thinking, and Bully was always wanting to come upstairs and be cuddled,
or have his dinner, his two favourite activities. I was his favourite
family member and we had a very special understanding. I miss him so
much and I know he's waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge where I'll
see him again. Bully, I will always love you and never forget you and
the joy you brought into my life during your time with us.
BamBam - November 2002, 3
I want to say that
BamBam was my baby. When he passed away my
whole life changed. But I can remenber the good times he brought into my life.
I love him so much and I'm going to miss him, but I know he is still with me
where ever I go. I love you, BamBam, now and forever.
May you rest in peace, my baby. You will always be missed. I love you
Max (Babyboy) -
February 2002, 15 years old
My sweet little boy. We rescued you from the shelter when you
were four. The scared little boy who hated to be picked up, turned into such a
loving boy, who gave kisses and loved his ears scratched. I hope you find Bobo
at the Bridge and enjoy playing with each other. I miss you and thank you for
making the 11 years you were with us so wonderful. You be a good boy! I love
Pokey Soria - November 2002, 5 years, 2 months old
I'm writing this memorial for my Mother's beloved dachshund,
Pokey. My Mom bought Pokey from a breeder - I guess you could say Pokey was
the runt of the litter. Mom adored Pokey so much that the dog never had to eat
dog food. Mom personally would prepare Pokey's food, or buy Pokey her favorite
hamburgers from McDonald's. I know it dosen't sound like the best thing to
feed a dog, but Pokey was the Princess. What ever the Princess wanted she got.
Pokey was loyal to Mom. My Mom and Pokey had a tight bond. Pokey would go to
work with Mom, on walks, and greet my Mom every morning with plenty of kisses.
Pokey was a very excitable dog she would run all around the house in and out
of her doggie door. Pokey was full of life and love. I know Mom has fond
memories of Pokey wagging her tail and barking excitedly to her pulling up in
the driveway from work. Pokey couldn't wait to jump inside the car and kiss
Mom hello. Mom and Pokey comforted one another and would watch television
together. Everyday after work Mom would talk to Pokey about her day and any
problems she may have had, Pokey had her subtle way of making my Mom feel
better, just by sitting and listening to her and licking her hands.
I am writing this to remember Pokey and to help my Mom grieve over her
Pokey tragically died in an accident on 19 November 2002. My Mom lost a very
close companion and a dear friend, whom I know she will meet up with again at
the Rainbow Bridge. We all will miss and love Pokey and keep our memories
close to our hearts.
Rudi - November 2002, 13 years,
8 months, 13 days old
My little puppy Rudi. So much love given and received. How can
such a small beautiful animal extract such feelings of grief? My heart is
broken. You were there for me always. I love you little puppy boy, Always
I'll see you in heaven little mate... your Dad
Bo Jackson Mansur -
November 2002, 11 years, 5 months old
Bo, who celebrated when we returned home.
Bo, who made sure we went to bed on time.
Bo, who never let us sleep in alone.
Bo, who made sure we made spagetti at least twice a month.
Bo, lord of his own yard, chaser of kitties and squirrels.
Bo, who chose me as his man and gave me absolute adoration.
Goodbye for now old friend, we will be together again, wait for me, I will
come to you.
Apollo - November 2002, 11
Apollo, I never realised just how important you had become to
me. I know I sometimes got upset at your little accidents in the house. What I
would give to have one of those accidents now. I still miss you dearly
everyday. I know the pain will probably lessen in time but the memories will
stay as strong. I am just thankful that it was very quick. We never thought
you would get hit in your own driveway. I will continue to take care of
brother and adopted brothers until it's time for them to cross the Bridge with
you. Apollo, I am so very sorry this had to happen. You will always have my
heart. WE LOVE YOU ALWAYS!!!
LOVE, DEL, DEANNA, JORDAN, BO, R.C., TIGER, ZEUS, and CHARLIE
Maggie Waggie - November 2002, 10 years old
I miss my little girl. I have three sons and since I'd never
have a girl, I adopted Maggie. She was my special puppy and I'll never forget
November 2002, 17 years, 9 months, 2 days old
Your given name was Charlie but when Dad was so sick and you
where always with him your name changed to Bud- Bud, or Mr B. You where a
wonderful source of comfort and support for us both in good times and in
bad. You helped when we lost your sister, you always seemed to know when we
needed your love and affection during bad and sad times. And you also
brought such joy to us everyday of your life. We miss you so much, we know
you're with your sister now. There is not a day or moment that goes by that
we don't think of you and wish you where still here. So sleep well my little
boy until we meet again.
Love, Mom and Dad
Miki - November 2002, 15
Miki gave us 15 wonderful years. I'm stricken sad
now that he is gone, I believe that someday we
will be re-united. Miki will always have a
special place in my heart.
November 2002, 3 months old
My baby boy was only three months old. He was born with tear
in his chest wall. The vet told me that this is usually caused by a blow to
the dog's side but since my baby was always inside with me there is no way
that could of happened. So the next guess was that he had to have been born
with it. This was my first litter of puppies and my mama dog only had him
and his sister. I am keeping his sister.This was the first time I had ever
had to go through something like this. All I can do is spoil the ones I have
to find comfort.
Abigail Pellegrino - November 2002, 1 years, 6 months old
Abigail, the most precious black and tan dachshund. 'Abby' had
such personality and attitude that could make anyone laugh. Abby went to doggy
heaven to make little children happy who needed a pet. Abby could make a bad
day a great day as she could make anyone laugh!
We all love and miss Abigail dearly.
Love you, Mommy, Kathy, and Ron
Blaze - November 2002, 4
My beloved Blaze was what I would like to refer as my god. I
couldn't stand being with out him. But now that it has happened I am in the
worst grief of my life. I hope that we will be joined together at the Rainbow
Bridge and share our love and happiness for each other once again. I love you
Rusty 'Egor Bathazar' -
November 2002, 12 years old
Mamma Loves Rusty, yes Mamma Do!
Daddy loves Rusty, yes Daddy Do!
We will always love you Rusty and you are still here, watching over Mamma and
Daddy. We can't wait until we meet again.
I love you very much!!
Pepper Ann (Poo) - November 2002, 4 years, 6 months old
My precious Pepper,
I miss you so terribly. Not a day goes by that you're not on my mind. You
the sweetest and most loving dog and I couldn't have loved you more. I
much that you are not here with me but I know God needed you for a very
special reason. You'll always be my precious baby girl.
Tasha - November 2002, 13 years old
I still cannot believe you are gone, my little Wee. Momma
misses and loves you very much! I hope you are eating all the Pupperoni's
that you want. Always remember, Tasha, that we are T and T - like
Adolph DoggieMan -
November 2002, 14 years, 6 months old
Adolph, my love - there are no words to express how much you
meant to me or how much I miss you. You were my best friend, companion,
child, lover. No matter how bad things got, I always took comfort in the
thought that 'well, I have Adolph. Adolph is waiting for me. Everything
will be all right once I'm with Adolph.' You always could put a smile on
my face, ease my loneliness, comfort me and make everything alright again.
I remember waking up at night, alone, frightened and then realising when I
heard you softly breathing next to me, touched you, held you, that you were
with me and as long as you were there, I was okay. You were my lifeline.
You saved my life. The best thing that ever happened to me was finding you.
I know you always felt the same way. That day we met, I not only rescued
you but you rescued me. Oh how I miss you. I pray we will be together again
some day. Until then, watch over me, my angel.
Rusty T-Bone -
November 2002, 2 years, 5 months old
Rusty, my loving baby, I miss you more than any words
could ever say. You were my only true love and you
gave me all yours back 10 times more you will never
be forgotten and I'll love you forever.
Rusty loved to sleep in bed with me and my husband - right
between us under the covers on his back and he loved to
ride the four-wheeler. In the car he ways cuddled with
me and he would never go outside while it was raining.
My husband would kill birds and Rusty would go get them.
We never thaught him that - he just did it. When he would
see then gun he'd get so happy.
He was simply the best dog ever. I love you, Rusty. Months have passed
and I still go to your grave each day and bring you flowers.
Please know I loved you more than anything.
Lexie - November 2002, 6 months old
To my little princess. You put a smile on my face everyday.
No matter what happened you were always there cuddling on my lap. I miss
you very much and know that you are having fun with all of the other
puppies. Your energy wore me out at times, but it kept me young at heart.
You may not have been in my life for very long, but it was long enough for
me to attach myself to you and love you more than anything. I will see you
in my dreams. Love, your momma
