Holly Bear

  O, how I wish I could go with you today. I will miss you, deeply, in my heart, Each day, More than words can convey. My sweet Labrador who has given me, More love, friendship, and loyalty than any Human could offer me on this earth. You four-leggeds…..your souls come to us, Without any expectations, and you are ours, For years…..giving your love and devotion, Without asking for anything in return. Even in the last moments You were giving to me, Letting me know it was okay, It was time. You have been a gift Hollybear. I will be grateful every day for The 15 years of your life You have given my life. And I will love for eternity. Now it is time for you to move on my sweet girl, And meet your friends again, who are lovingly waiting your arrival Poco….Blue….Cole…. And tell them, for myself, Jeremy, We love them also, Still, Always….. Until we meet again. Go gently now, with love and light embracing you, To Rainbow...

My Best Buddy Jack Attack

When I was first told about you my answer was originally “I’m full I can’t take on another dog”, but when I heard that at only a year old you spent 23 hours a day in a tiny carrier I made room for you.  The original plan was to get you healthy and socialized and then rehome you.  I drove to meet your original “owner” and she never shed a tear or said a word, just handed me your carrier and drove away.  I put the carrier in the car and immediately removed the top. When I did out popped this cute little face with big brown eyes.  Looking back I know that is when you grabbed my heart. Less than a week later you had your first seizure which scared me and I think it scared you too.  But I continued to hold you in my lap and talk to you until you started to recognize me again.  The next day we took a trip to the veterinarian to see if we could figure out what was going on.   He gave you a complete exam and did blood work.  He wanted to send you for a cat scan but cautioned us that it may not show us anything.  When I told him no he said the kindest thing would be to “just let you go”  since you had difficulty with your back legs and now had seizures.  I refused to give up and took you home.  That is when I knew I was going to be your forever home.  Slowly you started coming around and your back legs became stronger.  Although you continued to have seizures every 10 days nothing changed the fact that you loved everyone and everything that you came in contact with.  You were my constant companion.  Many cold winter nights we would cuddle on the couch and you would push your “brothers and sisters” out of the way so you could get under the blankets.  Always greeting me with kisses and a little dance when I came home from work.  When your “dad” and I started dating I was worried you would be jealous but again you proved everyone wrong and warmed right up to him. The first few months after moving to NH to be with your dad weren’t easy as you had competition for my attention but you happily followed dad every where too.  Slowly we started working on adjusting your medications and you went from having seizures every 10 days to once a month to every 6 months.  Finally we had them under control only to be hit with an even worse diagnosis  Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia.  We were told you had maybe 4 to 6 months, yet again you had to prove everyone wrong.  You had such love for us that you kept on fighting and even went into remission for a short period of time.  Then that summer you started to act funny again and your blood work kept showing lower and lower blood count levels. No matter how awful you felt you still gave kisses and did your cute little dance.  Then one Saturday morning you didn’t want to eat and couldn’t even sit up.  You just looked at me with those big brown eyes that I fell in...

King Mookie

King Mookie you entered our life at the age of 7 after being diagnosed with diabetes and were “unadoptable” because of your so called “aggression.”  I brought you home to Dad who said you were to go back on Monday, but that didn’t happen did it buddy.  In 2 days you managed to weasel your way into his heart and you became his little buddy.  You had your bed on the couch and took your place on our bed usually right between us at night.  Originally we were told that because your diabetes was difficult to control and you also had pancreatic issues we would be lucky if you saw the age of 9.  You were 13 when you went to the bridge.   We had lots of close calls with you but you always rallied and bounced back as ornery as ever. You chose who you liked and who you didn’t and as long as the person was part of your “in crowd” you would love them unconditionally.  You put up with all the blood glucose checks, and poking and prodding.  You would just nibble on our fingers to let us know it was not your favorite thing.  It is because of you my little love that we fell in love with the breed of Miniature Pinscher, you definitely were true to your breed.  You could be a stubborn little brat when you wanted to be, but you loved your people.  Believe it or not our favorite thing was when you would snarl and try to bite and then immediately roll over onto your back and look up at us like “oops sorry.”  Yes you definitely were a little comedian. Now you are running free at the bridge, and I’m sure eating all the sugar filled sweets and steak that you couldn’t have here on Earth.  We love you buddy and thank you for showing us what fun Minpins can be.  It is because of you that we are now working to help rescue others.  However, you will always be the one and only “King Mookie” RIP sweet boy May 4, 1999-Sept 4,...
