Awesome Adoptions 2008

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

 

Number of Adoptions in 2008: 108


Parker




Adopted 12/31/08
Deceased 04/13/12

It is with a heavy heart that I write to tell you that sweet Parker crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Friday, April 13. He brought me so much joy in the form of his crazy antics, high energy, and absolute loyalty. He lived life to the fullest - running, laughing, playing, right until his last breath. He had an undiagnosed heart problem and so on Friday it just missed a beat and he layed down forever, confirming what anyone who met him knew - his big personality was just too much for his little body. I know that he's running full speed ahead now - my little prince!

Thank you for saving him and giving me a chance to love him!

Jake #3




Adopted 11/02/08
Deceased 12/23/11

Jake was a sweet boy true to his bio on the Dachshund Rescue Site. We thought through adopting Jake we could make a difference in his life BUT on the contrary Jake made a BIG difference in all our lives! We really enjoyed him and will deeply miss him! Jake was such a good buddy to our Precious and kept her company when she was sick. We all miss Jake so much, especially Precious. I will remember them running around and kissing each other –they were a sight to see.

Dear Jake (Our sweet little boy),

“We Love You and Miss You dearly! You brought Us so much Love.”

Richard, Hope and Precious

Sadie #3
"Sadie Sue"




Adopted 10/12/08
Deceased 10/07/11

With great sadness and a heavy heart, I report that my Sadie Sue, who I adopted from DROH, has crossed the Rainbow Bridge tonight. She was protecting her family by killing a coral snake in our backyard. Unfortunately, it bit her.

There is such a void in our home now. I am heart broken and sad beyond what words can say. Who will take naps on the sofa with me now? The picture with her nose peeking out from the blanket is her trademark. Whenever I couldn’t find her in the house, I would check the throw on the sofa.

DROH is the best thing that ever came in to my life. You gave me such a wonderful gift when you rescued my Sadie Sue.

Our hearts are totally broken as Gretchen passed away suddenly​ ​December​ 3​. We adopted her in 2008 and she was the love of our lives along with her droh brother Zeke. She was in the vets care when it happened. There is a giant hole left in our hearts with her sudden loss. We love you Gretchen​.

Jack and Jill
"Bub and Sis"




Adopted 09/05/08


10/7/2010: The pups are still a joy. As long as I throw the ball for Bub he is a happy camper. Sis has taken to patrolling the back fence to protect us from squirrels. She’s lightening fast and has nearly caught a couple. There is one squirrel that taunts her every afternoon – he runs along the top of the fence and will stop and twitch his/her tail at her. I guess it gives her exercise. They are such a delight!!! I keep saying I’ll send photos and I promise I will when I capture a perfect picture. They are loving this wonderful weather – makes them frisky!!

12/16/2010: Most of the photos we have of Bub and Sis are somewhat blurry as they are usually in motion. The boys were out here a couple of weeks ago and I did get some of them with Bub. The little one just thinks Bub is the best and loves to rub his face over Bub’s ears because they are so soft.

Lucky #2
"Izzy"




Adopted 03/09/08
Deceased 02/09/10

Lucky lived up to her name. Abandoned at the vet by her previous family, she was fortunate enough to find people who were not afraid to adopt a Dachshund who was getting up in years. And although they only had two short years with her, it was well worth it for all involved. Thanks to Shannon and Crystal for taking such good care of this sweet girl in her golden years.

Cole




Adopted 03/01/08
Deceased 03/28/11

From his adopter, Maurgan:

Cole was put to sleep this morning due to complications (mylomalacia) related to his IVDD. I was with him at the time and he did not suffer, although his last few days were tough. He did his best to put up one heck of a fight. He will be greatly missed and we really enjoyed our three short years him.
