Lowmont Loredell (aka Monty Colbert) - April 2006, 6 years, 10 months old

Born Sydney, NSW, 14 June 1999 - passed away 3 April 2006 Canberra, ACT, Australia

You were a wonderful friend and confidant. I will miss you forever. Rest in peace my darling boy, free from the ravages of IVDD. Look for Lady and Napoleon and wait for me with them.

FLY (for my Monty)

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this memory bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget

Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light

Mummy will miss you. Until we meet again.

Love and kisses

Widget - April 2006, 10 years old

My poor baby got up this morning and her back legs had gone completely. She couldn't walk and the vet said there was nothing he could do - she was too old. So there was nothing for it but to say goodbye.

She was true dachs - brave, faithful, feisty and a real character. She has a place in my heart that nothing will ever replace. She came from a dog's home aged six where she had been for two years - nobody wanted her because she had an 'attitude problem'. All she wanted was to be loved, and I couldn't have loved her more. She repaid me a thousand times over with her total devotion. I will miss her so much. Goodbye my darling Widget, sleep well x

Shiloh Moreau - April 2006, 5 years, 5 months old

My beautiful little girl died in my arms this morning. Never have I felt anything so painful in my entire life. Just a few short days ago she was diagnosed with 'intervertebral disc disease' and lost the use of her hind end. Her bladder and bowels were next to go. Surgery was not an option. She was only five years old and the light of our life. Rest in peace my little sweetheart who brought such joy into our lives.

Lady Tigger - April 2006, about 4 years old

Lady Tigger came into my life three years ago. She was found running the street in and out and under cars. I brought her home and no one ever claimed her. She was a beautiful black and tan minature with so much love to offer. She soon became a part of our family. She was loved by all, her Mama, Daddy and her doxie brother and sister. She is sadly missed by all. The thing that keeps me going is knowing that she is waiting at the Rainbow Bridge with my other dachshund babies who have gone on ahead.

Trixie - April 2006, 6 years old

Trixie I will always miss you. Twenty years from now we will still be thinking about you.

Heidi Sands - April 2006, 14 years, 6 months old

My Heidi was my life for almost the last 15 years. She way right there with love as I was divorced. God blessed me so much with her I will never forget her. I miss her so much but am so happy she is not in pain anymore.

Connie Olivia - April 2006, 11 years old

Connie - my heart is broken to know that you have left us. You were so tiny and helpless when you first came to our family. You grew with our little Katie who loved you so much. Your loyalty and love will always be remembered by us. I will miss you forever.

Velvet - April 2006, 9 years, 3 months old

Velvet was a red miniature long-haired dachshund. We brought her home when she was only six weeks old. She was small enough to fit in one hand. For nine years now she has been my family's baby and my mother's constant companion. Every time we went on vacation she went with us. She was a very smart, sweet, and curious dog who loved to play and had an obsession with milk bones. On Sunday she stopped eating and wouldn't walk. On Monday we took her to the vet and found out she had a very large splenic mass. There wasn't anything they could do. Although we didn't want her to go, it was the best thing for her. She was put to sleep and it was very peaceful. She kissed my mom and me goodbye and wagged her tail and we held her while she passed away. There is a void in our home and our hearts that will never be filled. We love you Velvet very much and we'll never forget you. Sleep good baby girl.
Love Always, Kristen, Kara, and Mom

Dear Tina,

I love you so much.

I miss your nose poking at me to wake up in the morning. I long again to see your determined anticipatory face as you peered out the window looking for me to come home.

The house is so still without you here.

Each time the blinds flutter, I think it is you. At dinner, I still look down to give you a bite. I anticipate you being underfoot when I walk and search to find you at my feet when I'm sitting in my chair. I wish you were still here with all the gleeful mischief in your eyes you always had.

Thank you for the all the years you shared with me. I will always treasure them and will store the memories of our life together forever in my heart.


Maggie Sausage - April 2006, 6 years, 5 months old


Always to be remembered...

You were my first beloved dachsie, you were the start of my breed kennel, you were my life, my everything! May you finally rest in peace and have no pain.

Maggie, you will forever be in my heart and I'm sure I am in yours. And right now you watch over us and guide us...you will forever be with us. Wait patiently for us at the Rainbow Bridge, where Jellybean has now joined you. Until we meet again my sausage...I love you.

Katee Cass - April 2006, 4 years, 3 months old

Katee was a silver dapple that could sing like a coyote. She was very sweet and loyal. She went to the doggie heaven after having surgery on her back. We miss and love her very much. She will always be in our hearts.

Dutch Boyett - April 2006, 15 years old

My brother, Dutch, was bought for my other brother in April of 1991. He was a standard size and red. He quickly became my mother's dog and was a very loving, and protective dog. Over the years we all grew very close to him and we had nothing to worry about because if someone he didn't know came to the house he would not let them in. He and I had our fights and he would chase me up on the counter but in the end we would be playing and laughing very soon.

After my bother and I got married and moved out of the house he and my mom became very close due to my dad working out of state a lot. He was my mom's only company. In the mornings when he got up he would go outside and do his thing but when he came in he knew it was time for his morning loving. He would sit in my mom's lap for hours as if he was protecting her. And then one day my mom called me at work crying, and I rushed over. He had had a seizure and when he woke up up he was trying to bite her and she couldn't move to get away from him. He finally came around and he was the same as he had always been, loving. She took him to the vet only to find that he had congestive heart failure. He was put on medication. But the seizures continued and then he couldn't eat because he couldn't breathe while he ate. So the time came and we had to put him to sleep. The whole family was there with him to say goodbye. My mother has had the hardest time though because for so long it was just her and him. He was my brother and I miss him very much, but I know he is in heaven doing what he loved most-chasing squirrels and hunting. Goodbye Dutch. Ee miss you very much.
