If tears could build a stairway
And memories a lane
I'd march right up to heaven
And bring you home again

Dear Heart: May the angels in Heaven rub your tummy 24/7 until we meet again.

You were a very special girl. You never met a stranger and everyone loved you. You were here such a short time and will always be remembered. Your spirit now soars free of your broken body.

I will never be able to express the love I felt for Ozzie, my little loving boy awaiting my arrival every day, regardless of his disk operation, arthritis, and finally, diabetes with pancreatitis.  The day he crossed the bar was the day my heart broke forever.  I'll miss the barking at all hours of the night to get up and lift him into bed with me, the insides of plastic squeaky toys all over the house, and the many kisses he gave me every day of my life.  I love you, Ozzie. My life will never be the same without you.

Every dog should feel the wind across his nose...Victor does now.

My sweet girl, I had you only a short time but loved you like you were here for years. My heart is broken without you, and I miss you more than words can say. Rest in peace, sweet girl, and know that I will see you again one day at the bridge.

Love, Jenn Paul

Two sisters united at the Bridge.

My heart aches, my soul weeps but you, my little ones, run free. Iron Paw and Doodie, you gave so much and took so little. Thank you for sharing your life with us. We will always remember you and those special little head-butts.

Until...Forever & A Day wait for us at the Bridge!!

PJ, you were the love of my life and you were with me for such a brief six years. I will never forget all the fun we had together. Everyone who met you became your friend. Someday we will be at the Bridge together. You were the reason everyone should rescue a dachshund.

Love, Mom


She was the toast of the town.....

In Loving Memory


"When something burns as brightly as he did,
the flame doesn't burn for long. "
He truly was larger than life and took my heart with him when he left.

For the first time in 18 years we don't have a dachshund to come home to, and it hurts so bad. Beau (back) was CDX in obedience and a real Mama's boy. George (in front) was a rescue dog and he and Beau bonded like the brothers they became. They brought us so much joy. They will be in our hearts forever.

He made me laugh every single day....

The little bear, our Cocoa boy, brown nose, brown eyes, our chocolate joy.
A smile you wore on that dear face, the eyes alight none can replace.
First on to the door with joyful bark; without your light, our house is dark.

The love you gave, all heart, my friend, we trust our paths will cross again.
So goodbye, dear friend, but just for now, we'll be together again somehow.
The day will come that it will once again be sweet Cocoa, Henry, and me.

When Shana came to live with Pluto and me in 1999, it took her exactly one minute to take over the house and show us who was boss. Despite being totally blind and developing a few medical conditions in the past couple of years, she was a feisty little thing and every dog in the neighborhood made a path for Shana when she approached.

She was a wonderful girl who added a new dimension to our household. She was very loving with me and standoffish with other people. I miss her grumpiness terribly and am so glad I had her in my life, even for such a short time.

Our world owes you an apology for your beginning. I owe you my heart for teaching me so much. The first day you let me touch you, the first kiss you gave me, the joy you brought to me as you learned to trust are the greatest gifts a rescuer can ever receive. You are missed.

Heidi was a loving and feisty dog who loved to ham it up at parties, burrow under the covers and greet passersby from her favorite perch on the sofa.

Susie was with us for only 14 months. She had had a hard life, and I loved spoiling her. I miss you, little bug...



 He was a treasure and was deeply loved.

Andy was with me for only a month before his little heart gave out and he went to the Bridge in his sleep. A fellow rescuer pulled him from a Kentucky shelter, where he had been dumped and would surely have been euthanized. From the first moment I saw him, Andy touched my heart. I never knew I could fall in love with a dog so quickly, but Andy filled my heart with joy. He loved food more than anything and ate with such zest. Andy will always be in my heart, for all the love he gave in the short time he was with me.


1996 - 2004

Little did I know, when I walked into the shelter in April 2004 and saw those sad soulful eyes staring up at me, that my life would be changed forever. Carman, we were privileged to know you and love you for only a few months, but that brief time was a wonderful experience. My only regret is that your time with us was way too short. I miss your "Yay! Mom's home! dance," and your gentle snoring at night. I'm thankful that we could bring a little happiness into your life, and thank you for the joy you brought to us. We love you, Carmie....and always will.
