Sidney

In Memory of Sidney
November 2006

Sidney was the devoted companion of a patient who recently lost his fight with HIV/AIDS. He so loved Sidney that he made sure that his future was secure before he would enter into hospice care. Sidney lived only another month and crossed the bridge to be reunited with his master.  May you both rest together in peace.

My sweet girl, CiCi, died from autoimmune hepalytic anemia at the approximate age of 10 1/2. She is the reason I became involved with dachshund rescue ten years ago. She is the reason I will continue to rescue helpless dachshunds who need loving homes. I adopted CiCi from Dachshund Rescue of North America in February 2000. She was rescued from a horrible puppymill in Missouri and was pregnant.  Christine McEntyre was CiCi's foster mom and she cared for her during her pregnancy and delivery. CiCi had my heart from the very first day and I will never forget her unconditional love.

Today, there was no gentle nudge
With an intense "I love you gaze",
Only a heart that's filled with tears
Remembering our joy filled days.
 
But an Angel just appeared to me,
And he said, "You should cry no more,
GOD also loves our Rottweilers,
HE's installed a 'doggy-door"!

Crossed the Rainbow Bridge August 19, 2010

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The true rescue was the blessed day Tilly entered my life.  She truly rescued my heart.  It was an honor being her human.  Little "Tilly McGill" touched so many hearts with her joyful presence.  She loved to play, travel, snuggle, hog the bed and camp out in Aunt Debbie's kitchen.  Oh yes, and the occasional "cat food" treat.  She is dearly missed and will forever be in my heart!
I Love You Tilly!

Luke

In Memory of Luke Graeff
October 3, 2010


Luke came into my life quite accidentally - I was only designated to transport him to a rescue group - But his sweet nature and loving eyes took my heart and he rescued me instead.  Luke shared his ever-wagging-tail for me for 6 years - even when he was feeling his worst in the last days he would always wag that tail hard against his bed when I came home.  I miss his nightly belly rubs - "Rub The Buda's Belly" as it was known in our home.  He will live forever in our memories and hearts - he was definitely my boy.

My baby boy Jacob crossed the Bridge, he was 14 years old.  My Jacob was a good boy that loved his mommy and his mommy loved him.  We only had each other for 2 1/2 years but it was a loving time.  The one blessing about him crossing is that he's not in pain anymore.  I will miss him forever.

Mr. Murphy

In Memory of Mr. Murphy
November 8, 2010

 

 

 

 

 

Mr. Murphy was his name.
He lived his life without any pain.
Then one day the doctors said.
He has an inoperable tumor, and now he is in pain.
A decision that was so hard to make.
However, we couldn’t be selfish so.
A decision we had to make,
we let him cross over the bridge tonight.
 
Memories of Murphy are all around us,
his toys, his bowl, and his special blanket.
God gave us 12 years of our special friend,
 It was tough to say Good bye my little friend.
 I know he will always be with me in spirit and in the heart, so
I told Mr. Murphy to sit by the pearly gate and wait until I will come, and then we can have fun and ride the golf cart through them pearly gates.

Courtney, the vibrant and very talented wife of her most loving husband, Andrew Rickard Chambers died suddenly of a heart condition on January 3, 2011. Drew and Courtney were married June 23, 2007 after meeting their sophomore year at SMU and graduating together in 2005. They were living in Charlottesville, VA while Drew finishes his MBA at the UVA Darden School of Business this May. Courtney and Drew have two very special dachshunds, Baby and Lily. Lily was adopted from ATDR in 2009. They were the light of Courtney's life and she would love more than anything to have donations made to this wonderful rescue so that many more special dogs like Baby and Lily can find loving homes.

On 28 Nov 1998 at the age of 10+ years you trotted into my life and snorted for service.  You were very much the loner who was as sweet as a sour pickle and as prickly as a pear. You would briefly tolerate a very minimum of the huggy, kissy crap but you were infinitely entertaining and truly inventive as you were able to flip me off in spite of not having a middle finger! You were #1 with me and a major part of my life for 12+ years until at the age of 23 your tired little body gave out and it was time to say good-bye.  I miss you so very much my “ornery little man” and the words “ornery little man” are said with MUCH love!

Daisy Memorial

Daisy passed away from hemolytic anemia on Feb 15, 2012.

 

 

 

 

 

  She had just turned seven.  She was a foster who I pulled from a shelter when she was just six months old.  My grandson, who was five at the time, was with me when I picked her up and he named her on the way home.  I remember he looked at her sitting next to him in the back seat and he said "she has a LONG nose."  He cried when I told him she would be adopted out and he said "please don't send Daisy away"  She became ours.  Daisy was as sweet as she was beautiful.  She loved everyone she met, especially children.  She was the one who always met our fosters first when we brought them home because we knew she would be friendly and gentle.   She went on home visits with me where there were children because I knew she could always be trusted with them.   She was truly one of those special dogs that come into your life once in a while.   Our sweetheart, Dapple Daisy, as we called her.  We will miss you.

Jen Memorial 2012

In Loving Memory of Jennifer Erin Polis

 

 

May 10, 1972 - April 18, 2012



This in honor of my beautiful, caring, sweet, thoughtful cousin, sister, daughter, and friend, Jennifer Erin Polis.  She passed away recently and suddenly and this has left a huge sadness in my life, and our family and friends lives. Jennifer was a huge animal lover, she always had such great stories about all the animals that she helped at the Vet clinic where she worked.  However, she always had a special place in her heart for dachshunds, we are going to miss her so very much.  But, for some reason knowing that her and Haley (in picture), "her baby" have crossed over the rainbow bridge together, makes the sadness from our loss slightly less painful.  She would love more than anything to have donations made to this wonderful rescue so that many more special dogs like "her baby" Haley can find loving homes.



R.I.P.  Jennifer and Haley, We miss you both terribly

  We adopted our sweet "Chief Red Weiner" in 2007. Will never understand how anyone could have given him up he was so perfect. But unfortunately he very recently went entirely blind at and early age and had some other neurological issues that we desperately tried to resolve by way of Texas A&M visits along with uncountable trips to our personal vet and other specialist. Then yesterday God decided Chief had been through enough on this earth and sent him to Rainbow Bridge where he is able to once again run, smell, play and see again until which time we are able to reunite. No words are able to express my deep sadness from his early passing but I know in my heart I did everything I could to show him how much he was and always will be loved.

Until we meet again Momma's Handsome Man.....I miss you more than I can say!!!!!
