Doxie MEM 2014

Doxie. December 13, 2013  

Doxie was thrown from a moving car in the twilight of her life. Just tossed aside like a piece of trash. A "Good Samaritan" saw her and picked her up. She contacted Glenda Watson with ATDR and asked us to take Doxie into our program. Doxie didn't trust humans since she had known pain from them, but Glenda could see that she was beginning to soften. Glenda asked previous adoptors, Betty and Wayne Johnson, to take Doxie into their hearts. They did and their love transformed this snappy, scared, red girl into a sweet loving girl!  

This memorial honors Betty and Wayne for never giving up on Doxie!

 Cupcake MEM 2014

We, very tragically and suddenly, lost Cupcake on December 19, 2013.  Our hearts are broken and it will take a long time to get over losing her.

She came into our home on July 14, 2010 when she was found in the backyard of an empty home by a realtor who was showing it to prospective buyers.  The people looking at the house brought her home with them and called me.

She was just seven weeks old and our vet said it appeared that she had been choked. We fell in love with her that very first day.  She was such a beautiful and sweet puppy.  We taught her how to fetch with a tiny tennis ball and play tug.  She loved to sit right in the middle of our laps and snuggle.

We still cannot grasp the fact that she is gone from our lives, and we miss her every single day.  Rest in peace, Cupcake. 

We love you.

 Rooney MEM 2014

The first time I saw Rooney she looked straight at me and took my breath away – she was the most beautiful puppy I had ever seen. When we got her home our lives changed forever. She was lively, smart, loving, funny and so expressive! We became Dog People because of her. Soon we added Minnie and later Rosie – but Rooney led the pack. Even as an Only Dog she was never “the baby”. Always an Alpha!

My husband and I loved her like she was our child. Major decisions were based on if it would be good for Rooney. She was so brave. She wouldn’t walk – she would march. When it would thunder, she would square off and “thunder” right back. Yet, for all her tough exterior she was so tender and loving. When she looked at you, you saw her soul. For 18 years she was a major part of our lives, and for eternity she will be a major part of my heart. Rooney Baby Girl, I love you always and I miss you more than words can say.

 Barney MEM 2014

Mr. Barney Fife – 6/1/1997 to 9/16/2014

Touch of the Net

I've lost a friend I didn't know, The message came today,
Propelled through wires at speed of light, From near or far away.

A noble friend, of ancient blood, A staunch and mighty guard,
A loving comfort, Hero spawn, Fair grist for any bard.

He left behind a family And friends to mourn his death,
He left behind a wash of tears, As he breathed his last breath.

Computer networks span the globe And contact now is found
With folks that we may never see, But feel with touch profound.

The dots of light on screen of glass Shape words of joy or pain,
We teach and learn and share our lives And blessings deep we gain.

So now I sit with sniffling nose And tears flow down my face,
I share a loss and try to find Pure words of peace and grace.

A dog has died, but more than that, A precious life has passed.
We take them in, they bless our lives, Then leave us much too fast.

God grant us peace and mem'ries long, Our short-lived friends to keep,
In stories, images, and thoughts, To calm us as we weep.

Now, lightning's brother, speed my words, Through fibers, disks, and such.
May cold computer magic turn To caring, human touch.

 Christopher MEM 2014

Our beloved Christopher, adopted on Mother’s Day 2003, crossed the bridge October 2, 2014 to join our Fredd and Fannie.
He was the product of puppy mill over breeding and had so many issues.  This special boy never let his physical problems get in his way, even after he went blind, he  didn't slow down a bit.  It was love at first sight for Christopher and his new Mom and for 11 years he was a constant in their lives. 
Christopher...a truly amazing boy who left with a big chunk of our hearts.  

We mourn his loss but celebrate all the love he gave us!

 Daisy Mae MEM 2014


Daisy Mae Mullennex 


1993- November 7, 2014


Daisy died today after apparently suffering s a stroke that was causing her severe pain beginning yesterday afternoon.  After the emergency clinic made her comfortable late last night with a sedative, we took her home where she slept and rested all night.  When she work up this morning she was wailing again and her eye was swollen to almost twice its size.  She was given a strong sedative that calmed her before she was helped over the rainbow bridge.  Daisy was a wonderful companion, strong as an ox (until the very end), as willful a Dachshund as there ever was, and a loving part of our lives for over 16 years.  We have many memories to reach back for as we mourn her passing.  For all those who knew her, you know how special and determined she was.  She has left a big hole in our lives….

In Memory of Ralphy

Goodbye dear friend.

There is so much we will miss:
your soft snores as you slept between our pillows
your joyous greeting when we returned home
your deep bark which made you sound like a much bigger dog
your sigh of affection when you laid your head on our knees
your pleasure at being outside in the warm sunshine
your joy at being alive and loved
Your memory remains forever in our hearts
