Lauren's Magnum - June 2006, 17
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this - the last battle - can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end.
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close - we two - these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
You gave us 17 years of love and comfort. Now you can see
ChaChi, your companion, again after five years. I'll meet
you at the Rainbow Bridge one day and we can walk into
heaven together. You are no longer in pain - you can
see, sleep, and run like you did in your younger days.
Lauren had you from the time she was three years old, and
has had to make the hardest decision in her young life.
She made this decision out of love because she could not
stand to see you in pain. She knows you love her as we
all love you. Rest in peace my baby
Love, Mom (Michelle)
Sam Johnson - June 2006, 2 years old
Sam came to us on a crisp fall night. He
was the only pup to survive so we always felt he was a
blessing. To outsiders he seemed a bit crabby and
stubborn but to us he was precious. His personality
always made us laugh. There was never a dull moment with
Sam. His favourite food was carrots and his favorite
activity was going on long walks. A few days before he
died he almost caught a squirrel which made him beam with
happiness! Sammy boy, we love and miss you very much,
please tell Cloey and Maggie we love them and miss them
Allie (Allison) Aloysius Atchley - June 2006, 15 years, 10
Your first name is German and means 'of
noble birth'. Your second name, pronounced 'al-a-wish-us,
means 'a warrior'. You were with us just two months shy of
sixteen years. You were going to be Sweet Sixteen. You
were sweet every day of your life. You gave kisses
whenever you were allowed. Even with your stinky butt
breath your kisses were sweet. You had the strenghth of a
great Dane (or so you thought). You protected your family
with no fear. Now you are with your favourite German
shepard sister, Tessa, frolicking and running in circles
around her. You will always be in our hearts! WE LOVE and
MISS YOU ALLIE!
Thalia - June 2006, 10 years, 11 months old
You came into my life when I least expected it. I had just
started college and was a student living on student loans.
It was my mother who wanted a dog - I certainly didn't,
and especially not a dachshund. They brought four brothers
and sisters to us in a box, and I saw you immediately. You
saw me too, you headed straight for me, curled up in my
lap and fell asleep. That night I spent a good portion of
my loan on you, and in return you gave me unconditional
love through the years. You taught me that you (and I)
could be happy even in sickness.
When I think of you now, I think of what I used to call
- 'My baby' - because you were my first born...
- 'Almond eyes' - your beautiful eyes could melt
- 'Esse' - after the sound you made when you were
enjoying yourself. Until I made fun of it, and you stopped
laughing like this :-(
- 'Bitchy' - because dachshunds can be...
- 'My little angel' - because you were and always will
be God's treasure to me through almost 11 short
Until we meet again...

Ziggy died around 2:05 a.m. while I was at
work. When he died he took a part of me to the grave with
him. I will always miss his playfulness and his
personality. I will miss when he rolls around the carpet
and scatches his back. I will miss playing tug-of-war with
him. Ziggy give us happiness during the tough times. He
made us smile after a tough day at work or at school.
Ziggy had tough life early on, as he wasn't getting along
with his currrent owner. For the past nine years we gave
Ziggy nothing but care and love. Nothing in this world can

My dearest Mosie,
You came into my life at a trying time. You quickly became
my rock. You were my best friend, my support system, my
biggest fan. You gave me courage to fight. You protected
me at all cost. You were my dearest companion. I miss how
excited you were to see me, our cuddles and kisses. I am
lost without you by my side. Hoping we meet again
Love mom XOXO

The Golden Thread that tied us together for 15 years has
You took a piece of my heart with you, and left a gaping hole that can
never be filled.
Dad, Mini and Rover miss you, too. Run free at the Bridge, my sweet
All my love, Mum.
Lily Thomas - June 2006, 13 years old
Lily was a rescue that I fostered for 6 weeks. When it
came time to let her go I couldn't. I adopted her in September 2000 when
she was 8 years old. She became my little 24/7 furbaby, when I moved,
she followed. She was 13, when she went to the Bridge.
Pax - June
2006, 11 months old
Our darling little Pax was only 11 months old
when we lost him. He was a little ray of sunshine for us. He
was always happy and well-behaved and even when he became ill
he never whined or showed pain. In the short time we had him in
our lives he stole our hearts like no other dachshund we have
ever had. We have two other dachshunds and they miss him
terribly. I have Pax's picture as wallpaper on my computer and
I talk to him every day.
Pax, we will never forget you. You are in our hearts forever
and we will be together again some day in heaven. I know you
are there already, with little wings.
