Awesome Adoptions 2006

I knew them in a heartbeat, I could tell they felt it too.
They said, "We have been waiting for a special dog like you."
Now every night I say a prayer to all the gods that be.
"Thank you for the life I live and all you've given me.
But most of all protect the dogs in the pound and on the street.
And send a rescue person to lift them off their feet." - Arlene Pace

Miss Shannon




Adopted 05/07/06
Deceased 05/25/13

Miss Shannon lost her battle to cancer today. To the very end, her world was one big tail wag. She traveled, ate her meals and even drank water wagging her tail. She was a dear companion who left us too soon. Our world has lost a tiny piece of happy.

DON'T GRIEVE TOO LONG

By Jan Horn

Don't grieve too long for now I'm free
I've followed the path God set for me
I ran to Him when I heard His call
I wagged my tail and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To bark, to love, to romp or play
Games left unplayed must stay that way
I found such peace; it made my day.

My parting has left you with a void
Please feel it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too shall miss

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full, you've given so much
Your time, your love and gentle touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief
Lift up your head and share with me
God wanted me; He set me free!!

From Smitty's Mom:

My heart is broken , I am going to miss that little boy more than you can imagine. It wasn't even sudden. He had been going downhill for quite a while; different things going wrong. Aging does bad things to us all, especially small helpless creatures who cannot help themselves and depend on us for their care

Oscar




Adopted 02/06/06
Deceased 03/18/11

I am attaching a picture of Oscar from the hallowiener party.... he went as a pirate as you can see from the picture. I adopted Oscar because no one else wanted him. He was blind in one eye and afraid of smoke for some reason. Every time I would turn on the oven he would run, hide and shake something horrible must have happened to him when he was young. He also had a tattoo on the inside of his leg, no one ever could tell me what it meant.

The past few years he suffered from terrible skin allergies and I tried every treatment possible. Finally his skin got so bad with the constant chewing and itching the vet said it was best to put him out of his misery. He wasn't the cutest or best behaved dachshund but he was loved and he will be missed by both of his brothers Chili and Frankie. He will also be missed terribly by me and my husband.

He was truly loved the last years of his life and I hope it made up for all the bad years he had gone through before he came to live with me. I know he is waiting at the Rainbow Bridge

Beckett




Adopted 01/20/06
Deceased 05/30/13

We adopted Beckett, a Katrina survivor, from DROH in December 2005 and he has been a wonderful companion and family member. Several weeks ago he got into a Sago Palm nut ... sadly after liver and kidney failure he had to be let go. We are donating a gift in his memory via your donations link. We thank you so much for this blessing over the years.
