Rudy Cohen - June
2005, 12 years, 9 months old
My Rudy was the 'Rudiest of the Rudys'. A dachshund who's
loyalty to us was borderline fanatical. I raised him from the time he
was 12 weeks old. We had so many good times together. The pain of his
loss hurts right now. However, I know that the pain will fade and only
the happy memories will remain.
We have been blessed to have had Rudy as part of our lives. We're going
to miss him sorely.

Lil' Lulu - June 2005, 1 years, 11 months old
Lil' Lu, you received more love in your two short years
than most receive in a lifetime. Your toys are still lying about, the
laundry is still chewed, and your leash still hangs on the peg by the
door. You were full of life and spunk and we'll never forget you. Thank
you for being the best dog we could ever hope for.
We'll miss your happy-butt dance when we come home, your leaps from the
furniture, your un-ending curiosity, your crazy hair, your one paw
scratches at the door, your sphynx pose, and your morning hugs. We miss
you Lucy girl...and we'll always love you.
Dad, Mom, Sarah, Erin and Hannah
Lil Bit - June 2005,
2 years, 6 months old
Lil Bit was a beautiful black and tan tweenie. I went to
pick him up at the animal control shelter after his owners 'couldn't
keep him'. When I got their they said that he was 'nippy' and they would
only give him to a rescue, (yah! that was me). So this 'nippy' dog sat
on my lap and licked my face all the way home saying, 'thank you, thank
you, I love you!!!'.
He loved my daughter, Angela, and slept with her every night.
He had loose stool from the day he came from the shelter, but after two
days he was vomiting water, would not eat and the diarreha started to
turn bloody. I did what I could but finally took him to the emergency
vet. Lil Bit died four hours later from haemorragic gastro enteritis. I
was devistated. I picked up is little body and buried him in the garden
next to my beloved Scrappy.
I only had him for 4 days, but I loved him a lifetime. I am soo sorry I
did not take you to the vet sooner Lil Bit. Please forgive me. You are
not a rescue without a home. You have a home with me and my family,
always in our hearts. You will always be remembered. Play with Scrappy
and I will see you at the bridge. I love you!!!!

Fiona Noel, warrior princess - June 2005,15 years old
Fiona was found eight years ago with her puppy in a town
dump. She was suffering from mammary cancer and came to my house to be
comfortable until she died..well the warrior princess fooled everyone
and lived eight long and healthy years. My little buddy was so full of
life and joy and was infamous for her ability to escape any fence. The
neighborhood kids dubbed her Houdindi. Though she escaped on a regular
basis she was always on the front porch waiting for me to come home. She
explored, she hunted and she was my friend. I wasn't her Mom, I was her
friend sharing adventures. She nearly exploded with joy when we moved to
the country and I am glad she had two years to patrol the countryside. I
bet she will be the first dachsie to escape from the Rainbow Bridge but
I know she will be waiting for me on the front porch when I get there. I
miss you with all my heart, warrior princess.
Seamus, the noodle
boy - June 2005, 1 year, 7 months old
Seamus, my little noodle boy. He was my cuddler and my
baby boy. I guess they needed more playful baby boys at the Bridge
because you had to leave too soon.
I miss you with all my heart noodle boy. You behave until I get there to
pick you up.
Coco - June 2005,
16 years old
Coco's original owner committed suicide and his family
was looking for a good home. I took him in when he was nine. He was the
kindest, gentlest dog I have ever met. When he got a younger sister, he
was so patient with her and always the gentleman. When he got older,
lost his vision and hearing, he was still able to find my feet and kiss
them. I hope he's in heaven wagging his tail and bouncing around. There,
he is young again and here he will be forever in my
Elvis - June
2005, 10 years old
Elvis died from a tumor in his throat on 29 June. He
lived a long and happy life. He was not just a dog - he was like a best
friend to the whole family. He loved to play with his raggedy old sock
and our two cats but he was terrified of thunderstorms. He will forever
hold a spot in all of our hearts. Elvis we will always remember you!
Love always Mom, Dad, Jerred, Joe and Allison
Smokey Bear -
June 2005, 5 years, 6 months old
Smokey Bear was a amazing doxie. He loved swimming,
fishing, riding in the boat or riding in the car, playing with his toys
or just chasing cats and rabbits. He was my baby, friend, companion,
confidant. I loved him so much words cannot describe. He was taken from
me in a hit-and-run - I held him as he died. I light a candle everyday
and say a little prayer, and I know one day I will see him again at the
Bridge. 'Till that day, take care Smokey, and Mommy and Daddy will see
Love, Vicky and Bruce
Dog' - June 2005, 13 years old
My best buddy in the whole world, you are sadly
missed by your loving Mom. I know you are not sick anymore
where you are. I love you always...
Lagos - June 2005, 15 years old
Hansie, for awhile after you left, I
couldn't think of you without crying. Now, it's hard to
believe that tomorrow will be a year... and I can't think
of you without laughing. You brought so much love, joy and
meaning into our lives. Not a day goes by that you are not
in our thoughts. We say things like, 'remember when Hans
stole that sandwich from the girl on the beach?' or 'if
Hansie was here right now, he'd be begging us to play ball
(how he loved that ball)'. There will never be another
like you and we will never try to replace what you gave
us. You died like you lived...on your terms. There will
always be room for you on the bed, right between Mom's and
Dad's pillows, and close to our hearts. We will see you
again some day. Love, L and J
