I have included
a page linked below for animal lovers, if you can possibly come away without
crying after reading it then you do not care enough about animals.
I like the Native Canadian story that say's ......
there was a gradually dividing line between animals and humans,
just before the divide became too great, the dog jumped across and joined man.
man aspires toward a righteous life,
his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals."
- Leo Tolstoy (1828 - 1910)
comes a time when one must take
a position that is neither
safe, nor political, nor
popular, but he must take it
because his conscience tells
him that it is right."
A dog is
someone who loves you more than they love themselves
A close friend who has stuck by me in
good times and bad is Candy. She is an 8 year old Samoyed. This is the second Samoyed I
have been buddies with, the first being Crystal. Crystal stayed with me all her life, from
a puppy in 1974 to the day she passed away in 1988. Other dogs in my life were Cindy an
Alaskan Malamute who unfortunately was taken by cancer in 1989 and Rosy, the sweetest
little female Rottweiler you ever saw. Rosy was also taken early by a rare form of
adrenaline gland disease.
Since I have written this section Candy
passed away October 1998 from heart failure. She is sincerely missed by me. All dogs
deserve to go to heaven, most people don't .... I bought a little Border Collie Cross
puppy in April '99 (Casey), what a smart and people friendly pup. She will take me into my
60's as my friend and I seem to be custodian of Mike's dog "Molson". He is one
silly sweet dog. Update December 2003. I have been the recipient of another dog.
Chico comes to me from a family that cannot take care of him any longer. He is a
1 1/2 year old Pomeranian. Cute little guy and what a
one of my much loved Samoyeds.
Passed away October 1998
Jan. 02, 1999 - Dec. 09, 2012
On December 09, 2011 at 9:56 AM, Casey my beloved dog passed away peacefully. She will be missed by me forever. To play "Missing You"(copyright) that was written and composed by my friend Karl Shaw and vocals by Maryam Malak, click on Casey's picture.
Sept. 1999 - May 08, 2013
Molson, one of the sweetest dogs I have known passed away on May 08 2013 at 7:30PM in my arms. Molson lived his life very stressed and shy but did not have a mean bone in his body and was so very very loving. I was unconsolable when he passed.
Chico the Pomeranian
My beloved Chico passed away peacefully August 17, 2015 at 7:04 PM. He was so tiny compared to my other dogs.
I was so protective of him but he had attitude and was feisty. What a great guy... I loved him so...
Born July 20, 2001. 14 years 4 weeks old.
Abby is a 6 year old Long Haired Chihauhau rescued dog from a puppy mill in Taiwan. We have applied to adopt her and received the call this evening (Aug. 27 2013) that after the home visit this Saturday we are quite certain Abby will be in our forever home.
Abby now is in our home, her forever home. She is unbelievably sweet natured. How forgiving for a little dog that has been through so much. Chico has been nothing but the perfect gentleman even to the point of giving up his bed for Abby.
Abby has a stage 3 heart murmur which we were aware of before adopting her. Such a pity this little girl has an affliction after all she has already been through. We are quite prepared to deal with her special needs, but the Vet has said she is not bad enough to need any medication or medical attention, just a fairly quiet home and a low sodium diet.
I think Abby will be as good for me as we are for her. I have had a very hard time getting past Molson's death. I can now give meaning to his passing by my thoughts of his 13 years and 8 months with us and when he passed, he opened up a place for us to take in another little life to care for. If there is a dog heaven, he will be looking down and "smiling".
Abby passed away at 6:50 PM August 26th 2015
Another beloved dog has left. I am heartbroken. A tiny dear that suffered so much in her early life and was with us only two years. Her little heart gave out tonight.
If ever there was a sweet soul lost it was Daisy. Miss Daisy passed away February 25, 2015 at 5:45 PM at only 4 years old. She was aflicted with epilepsy which took her young vibrant life. Daisy had nothing but love in her heart which she insisted in letting you know by her endless kisses and ability to jump three times higher than she was tall just to reach you and greet you. She never strayed from your side as she showed her gratitude for the care and love she was given during seizures. She only ever wanted to be loved and in return she gave anyone the best friendship and loyalty you could asked for. She will be missed by her mom Sandee, her best friend Cameron and me.
