This is our precious Mushka, (Little Butterfly). She died unexpectedly on December 15, 2012 from Addison's. The vets at Veterinary Emergency Referral Group, Inc. on the Katy Freeway did everything possible to try and save her, but to no avail.
Mushka touched our lives like no other Dachshund we have nurtured. She was certainly special and dearly loved her owners Larry & Paul.. Oliver, her male counterpart and Mushka were inseparable, they played together, slept together, ate together and got into mischief together.
Mushka had an uncanny ability to "yodel". When we would come in from an errand or work , she would be at door, tail wagging and yodeling all about her day's activities. We literally could understand everything she said! We truly miss our Little Butterfly!

I miss him more than words can express. I don't know that a dog has ever loved me quite as much as my Brownie. I was so blessed to have the chance to be his mommy. As Edrick said, " Your relationship with Brownie can only be explained in one manner, Mutual adoration! Mommy adored him and he adored his mama!" Brownie had the most ADORABLE face I have ever seen on a doxie.

The Love I Left Behind!
Before humans die, they write their last Will & Testament, give their home & all they have, to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I’d ask...
To a poor and lonely stray I’d give: -- My happy home. -- My bowl & cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys. -- The lap I loved so much. -- The hand that stroked my fur & the sweet voice which spoke my name.
I’d will it to the sad, scared shelter dog, the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.
So, when I die please do not say, “I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.”
Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope and give MY place to HIM.
This is the only thing I can give.... The love I left behind.

July 22, 2013, we had to say good bye to our sweet Sweetie. We brought her home to foster from the Buda Races in April 2009 and fell in love with her, so we decided to adopt her. She has always been such a sweetheart and an easy dog. She had been diagnosed with lung cancer back in April, almost four years to the day that we got her. She had been having a very difficult time breathing the last week or so and we knew it was time to end her suffering. We will miss you, Sweetie. You always lived up to your name.

Hershey was the sweetest little man and the loudest barker ever! His bark muffled by 75 lb. Chocolate Lab’s bark --- Hershey brought so much joy and many smiles to our household and will be greatly missed!! He developed Cushing’s Disease in November of 2012 and the treatment took its toll on his little body. We feel blessed to have had him for the time we did and thank ATDR for giving him the chance to be loved by us.
