Ginger MEM 2018


We lost our precious Ginger to heart failure on January 31, 2018, at the age of seventeen and a half. A local shelter called me in November of 2009 to come get her, found as a stray. She quickly went from being our foster dog to our own. She was my shadow, wanting to be with me every second.  She had been on three heart medications and had been doing very well, but had stopped eating and became weak very quickly. I held her tightly in my arms, kissing her and telling her goodbye. My artist friend, and fellow ATDR rescuer, gave me this beautiful drawing of her.  My heart aches and I miss holding her. Rest in peace, sweet Ginger. You will always have a special place in my heart.

Thank you again for bringing him into my life. I will adopt again someday. Just need a little more time ....

The Baroness MEM 2018

The Baroness came to us 2 ½ year ago at 14 years old, 7 lbs., deaf, partially blind, no teeth, and missing most of her lower jaw bone. She had been dumped in a shelter and thankfully ATDR pulled her and began the task of returning her to health. This entailed removal of all her teeth and antibiotics for a massive infection in her mouth and ears. I was immediately drawn to her, she seemed so lost and confused that I knew she had to come live with us. Linne’ agreed that we could “foster” her but I am sure she knew that we were going to adopter her just like we did with Tennyson and Maudet.
Right from the start The Baroness set the ground rules, basically it was going to be her way or no way. She managed to terrify Maudet and to keep Tennyson at a safe distance by grumping at them. She also did not like anyone coming into her castle or attempting to touch her or her servants.
She was a very finicky eater, and with her having no teeth or lower jaw bone all her food had to be pureed or chopped very fine. She demanded a revolving menu of roast pork, chicken (both roasted and barbequed), liverwurst, milk sweetened with sugar, yogurt, wet dog food pureed with chicken broth, and she absolutely loved whipped cream. She had a ritual before she would eat a meal. First, she would walk around her bowl several times, then she would start to lick the air above her meal, this would go on for a minute or two before she would lower her head and begin eating.
Despite all of her medical problems The Baroness was a very resilient and determined little lady. She taught me a lot about perseverance, trust, and the ability to overcome any obstacle. She was part of our lives for such a brief time, but she made an enormous impact on us and everyone she came in contact with.
Our time together was short but oh so fulfilling, the love and trust she gave to me will stay with me forever, and the memories of her tiny little antics will bring a smile to my face for the rest of my days.
The Baroness crossed the bridge April 1st, 2018 at 7:38pm in my arms. She is now hearing all the wonderful sounds and beautiful sights denied her on this earth. I will see you my dearest one when it is my time to walk across that bridge.
We will always love you,
David, Rolf, Tennyson, & Maudet

Annie MEM 2018

A tribute to our dear sweet one and only ANNIE, it will be two years ago this week we lost our ANNIE. ANNIE was with us only a short time, but her presence was pronounced. She was independent , she strutted with a little junk in her trunk, she never hesitated to tell the world what she thought. ANNIE brought such joy to our home, she was a great friend to all the other four legged beings in our home, she shared her great warmth on a cold day and wet kisses when she thought they were needed. We miss the little black hairs all over the house, now there’s only red and white.
We had a song we sang to ANNIE every night when we would tuck her into bed.  
My Sweet Sweet Annie
My Sweet Sweet Annie
You Have Such A Long Nose
And Pretty Little Toes
And A Big Belly
We Love You So Much Our Annie Girl.
These were the last words she heard from me, our weeping will never stop over the loss of such a wonderful dog. We pray you are happy with our LORD.

Connies Babies MEM 2018

In loving memory from left to right: Penny, Precious, Chloe and Zoe, our little Aggie Dachshund angels were loved and cherished for many years...then our hearts broke when we lost our Zoe, and then Chloe and Penny. Sweet Precious is still with us and being treated like the princess she is with afternoon car rides, a party with ice cream treats and hats on her birthday and all of her favorite things day in and day out. We miss her sisters dreadfully, as does our beloved Precious. They will be loved and missed and will occupy a cherished place in our hearts forever. Run free Sweet Babies until we're all together again some day.  ~Connie Towery Schielack

 Happy MEM 2018

My husband and I have been lucky enough to adopt 2 sweet doxies from your organization. We got our first, Beau, in October of 2006. Sadly, he passed away in 2011 and I wrote Linne to let her know. In April of 2008, we took Beau to the Wiener Dog Races in Buda and stopped by the ATDR booth to let them know we had recently purchased a house and were interested in fostering. 

We were surprised to hear that someone had dropped off a little dappled boy with 1 blue eye and they needed someone to take him that day. Since we had already been vetted to adopt Beau, we were the lucky people who got to take Happy home to "foster". ;)  

Needless to say, we decided we couldn't give him back and he became my constant companion. He lived with us for 10 years, in 6 houses in 3 states. We had 3 children who loved him so much and got another dog in 2016 from the Humane Society in Tulsa while living in Oklahoma who became his new sister. 

In his years, Happy beat a type of cancer called sarcoma and recovered from back surgery to regain use of his back legs. Sadly, he took a quick turn for the worse a few weeks ago and the vet suspected liver cancer. He passed away a week later, on September 9. We are heartbroken but so thankful for the years we got with him and to ATDR for helping us to find each other. 

I just wanted to thank you for the work you do and for the years we got to spend with Happy and Beau. 

Sincerely,  Barbara Leonard

Donnakay MEM 2019

Our ATDR family lost a special member today, beloved foster Donnakay Church of Beaumont. Donnakay fostered a number of special needs seniors and gave them an amazing forever foster home. The love that she gave to her dogs was a gift that she shared with many and she will remain forever in our hearts! Donnakay requested that donations in her memory go to All Texas Dachshund Rescue and we are profoundly grateful. Godspeed Donnakay, you will be reunited with your son and many dachshunds in heaven.

Slugger MEM 2019

"How can you resist this face? The answer is that you can't. Or at least we couldn't.
Slugger came to us from ATDR last year, several months after we unexpectedly lost our first doxie, Cooper.

While we were a little nervous about rescuing a "senior" pup, once we saw him, it was all over and he came home with us the same day.  He may have been 10 but he acted like a puppy and he was fearless! He ran and played with the other pups and thought he was bigger than our 70 lb rescue Caleb.  Watching the two of them playing was quite a thing to see! But 5 seconds later, he would be curled up with me or my husband, giving the sweetest, softest puppy kisses ever!

Sadly, our time with "The Slugster" was too short.  He was diagnosed with a brain tumor on March 13 and 10 days later our sweet boy passed away in my arms while I rocked him in my chair which was his favorite spot. We had prayed for as much time with him as possible but once again, our hearts were shattered.

I know when he crossed that Rainbow Bridge, Cooper was waiting for him and they are playing and barking (at nothing) and having a wonderful time and that gives us some comfort.  We may have had him less than a year, but we loved him like he had been with us his whole life and will miss him the rest of ours."

Thanks again.

Ben MEM 2019

Our Special Little Guy Ben Passed Away On Friday October 11, 2019 After Suffering What We Believe Was A Heart Attack. He Had A Big Bright Personality Wanting To Get His Way All The Time. Although He Had To Experience The Deaths Of Family Members He Was Close To Over The Course Of His Life, That Personality Stayed With Him. He Loved Playing With His Dog Friend Walker On A Daily Basis, Going On Car Rides And Taking Walks Trying To Finish Them Even If He Was Tired.

Ben Was Very Smart Too, Even Going So Far As To Get His Own Leash Out Once To Go In The Car, Climbing On Tables, Watching TV At Times And Even Watching Trains. If You Left Ben At Home Alone, You Could Expect Him To Bark His Head Off When You Returned Home Which Would Include Him Being On All 4 Legs, With His Front Legs Lifting Off The Ground As He Barked. He Had A Routine To His Day And Loved His Routine, Which Included Sleeping In Bed With His Owner.

Ben's Death Touched Us All And We're All Very Sad He Is No Longer With Us, But We Know That He Is In Heaven In God's Presence Thanking God For Being Placed Into Our Family And We Know That We'll See Him Again One Day.

Smokey MEM 2019 Smokey became a member of our family in November of 2002.  When my niece gave him to us we were hesitant to take him because we had just lost our mixed yorkie, but we did not want him going back to an animal shelter.  We never realized how much joy he would bring to our lives.  He was full of life and kept us on our toes.  He loved his toys and a few times, after returning from his daily walk, he had a stuff toy in his mouth that he brought home having found the stuff toy in the park or someone's yard.  SMokey lived to be 17 years old and passed away on March 5, 2018 of old age.  We miss you smokey but we are so glad you were part of the family for so many years.  You will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

~Jennifer Moss
Boo Boo MEM 2020 It is with a sad heart that I have to report the my Bella, fka Franzi adopted March 11, 2017, crossed the bridge this afternoon.
She fought a courageous battle with cancer but was unable to beat it.
Sadly her life was cut short by a liver cancer that was most likely caused by the extensive dental disease she had when she was rescued by ATDR. ATDR did a fabulous job in getting her mouth back to some semblance of health after removing all but 3 teeth.
Please tell everyone that will listen that dental disease kills by destroying the liver of the poor pup that's dental health has been neglected to the point of level 3 or 4 periodontal disease.

This is a picture of her on our last road/camping trip from October of 2019. She loved to travel.

My poor little Boo Boo. I miss her so very much.

Noel MEM 2020 Noel is the dog you dream of having in your life. She came to us as a mixed Labrador and German short haired pointer, rescue from the Houston SPCA and filled our lives with so much joy and love every day of the four short years she was here with us. She was so smart; she knew her commands from the 1st day we brought her home. She loved playing with our grandchildren and made friends with everyone she met. I am not sure why anyone would have ever given her up in the first place.

She left us far too soon, she was full of life, loved to walk with Sharon and play with Tiki our daschund, she loved to play with her toys, Sharon bought her 25 new toys each Christmas and she so enjoyed playing with them, and she would sneak into the closet and get another one out if we left the closet door open. She loved to have her ears scratched and rubbed and I would do it for hours on end, she never wanted me to stop.

She had the wettest and most loving kisses she gave us every time we sat or played with her. She had her own place in our bed every night and she was my alarm clock every morning when she got hungry. She was a strong willed, strong hearted dog, but her body could not fight off the onset of Addison’s disease and it took her away from us so suddenly.

She is the epidemy of how a rescue can love you with every ounce of her body, her happiness inspired both me and my wife and it was devasting to lose her so unexpectedly.

She will always have the most special place in both Sharon and my heart and mind. I know she is chasing squirrels and playing with her best friend Tiki who passed away 3 weeks before Noel and having the best time of her life and we know she is looking down on us every minute of every day. God please take care of our baby.

Pete & Sharon Medford

Tiki MEM 2020 IN MEMORY OF TIKI 4-24-2020

She came to us as a puppy and gave us so much joy in our life she was with us for a short 17 years, she always gave 100% of love to us and her buddies at our house, Noel and Nellie. She was always so excited to see us every morning and every afternoon.

She loved to snuggle with us on the couch and had so much spirit even to the end, her heart and soul were so strong, but her little body could not continue to serve her. We know she is now able to walk and run as she once could when she was so young.

When we snuggled on the couch, she would give me the best of the best of kisses and as many as I wanted. She liked to have her ears and belly scratched in return. She was truly my best friend so forgiving and full of love.
She is gone where all great little dogs go to join her friends and she will make new friends when she gets there. She is up there in heaven barking and trying her best to be the center of attention

Gone but never forgotten in our hearts and minds
Pete & Sharon Medford.

 Zelda MEM We are so sad with the loss of our sweet and sassy Zelda. She came to us four years ago, the best four years for us and we pray the best four years of her life. Although Zelda had only three legs she still could lead the pack to the door when the door bell rang, when the trash men were in the neighborhood she led the pack around the yard to bark at them, ( they couldn’t even see the truck as the fence is wood and 7ft feet tall but they could hear it!!! ) Zelda was the smallest in physical size but the biggest in voice, heart and soul, she let us know how to run this house, what time it was to eat and sleep, she is missed already so much. 
Her Foster Mom,Susan  called her Zellie, we called her Zelda, Zelda Zoo, Pumpkin or Chickin Nugget and she led our Goof Troops, no one can replace her or her goofy flat ears, her little tongue that hung out due to lack of teeth or the whine when she was telling us it was time to go to bed in the big bed. She had so much character she was a sweet and very verbal dog and we loved her dearly. Unfortunately Zelda was getting older and she suffered from kidney and liver failure, along with her only back leg was no longer working even after injections and medications for pain just no longer alleviated her pain. We did all we could to extend her life but her little body was tired and was withering away, her sweet soul told us through her precious brown eyes that she was tired. We were both with her and she quietly went to sit at Our Lords feet. We will forever miss you Miss Zelda, run with all four legs, we love you baby. Your Mom and Dad forever and always.
Candle 2012 In loving memory of T. Dudley Johnson (Uncle Dudley). We love you and miss you!
