Rosemary for remembrance...
Pansies for heart's ease.


Wimpy - November 2002, 12 years, 10 months old



God saw you were getting tired
and a cure was not to be...
So He put His arms around you
and whispered, "Come with me."
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating...
A special dog was put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us...
He only takes the best.

Roxy - November 2002, 11 months old

I only had her for a week. She died from parvo. I will miss her always.



George Onorad - November 2002, 15 years old

George was a very special, unique, and truly regal dachshund - and the very first dog I ever adopted.

He's been with me since I was 18 and he has celebrated the good times with me and comforted me through the trying times. Now, as I bid him farewell as he leaves us for the Rainbow Bridge, he is not here to comfort me.

I am grateful that his kidney problems no longer bother him and that he will be reuinted with his little buddy, Joey, whom we lost in March of this year.

I'll never forget how excited he and Joey were when we moved into our new home seven years ago - how they both ran around the uncarpeted floors and explored the undeveloped back yard. They were truly kinds of their new castle. I'll also always remember lovingly how George loved to ride in the car and poke his head out the window. Wind in his hair was a favorite activity and he did it regally.

I love you, George, with all of my heart. Thank you for 15 wonderful years. May God bless you and welcome you into his kingdom of heaven and may you know only happiness and peace and may you be reuinted with Joey forever. With God's blessing, I pray that we meet you at the Rainbow Bridge one day and cross over into God's kingdom of heaven together.

You will always be in our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers. And you will be sorely missed always.

Cathy and Tony Onorad



Sarge Harvey - November 2002, 11 months old

Sarge was a wonderful member of our family. My husband. our two girls, and I enjoyed him for the short amount of time that he was in our home. He was energetic, happy, loving, silly, playful and sweet. He gave us more joy than he could have ever known. He was stricken with an auto immune disease and passed away on 9 November 2002. We will always miss him. We know that he is no longer suffering and is playing with his favorite ball in doxie heaven. God Bless Sarge.



Schnitzel Schlecht - November 2002, 4 years old

Schnitzel was a black-and-tan dachshund. He weighed 10 to 12 pounds but acted as if he was 120 pounds. This dog was the pride of the family and he knew it. I believe that he would try anything for us. His love of the family was also the cause his death. When some large dogs entered our property he protected our children from the dogs and paid the ultimate price. For his actions and valour we will always remember this dear little dog and he has carved a special place in our hearts forever. Now the search for a new 'weiner dog' has to begin, but will not replace our Schnitzel. With loving memories I say good bye to my special dog.



Ellie a.k.a Little Bit - November 2002, 3 years old

Ellie was nothing short of being an angel. It was almost as if she knew she wouldn't have enough time here with us to do anything but offer unconditional, endless love. We will miss her and are waiting for her spirit to find us again.



Bully - November 2002, 16 years, 4 months old

This is a tribute to Bully, who we adopted on a whim just over six years ago when we were looking for a puppy. He was the most good-natured and loving dog in the world. He has been ill several times since he has been in our care, but a combination of his zest for life and incredible bravery, and, I like to believe, the power of our love for him kept him alive to a ripe old age. He was so intelligent; when you know a dog you can look into his eyes and know what he's thinking, and Bully was always wanting to come upstairs and be cuddled, or have his dinner, his two favourite activities. I was his favourite family member and we had a very special understanding. I miss him so much and I know he's waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge where I'll see him again. Bully, I will always love you and never forget you and the joy you brought into my life during your time with us.

BamBam - November 2002, 3 years old


I want to say that BamBam was my baby. When he passed away my whole life changed. But I can remenber the good times he brought into my life. I love him so much and I'm going to miss him, but I know he is still with me where ever I go. I love you, BamBam, now and forever.

May you rest in peace, my baby. You will always be missed. I love you lots.



Max (Babyboy) - February 2002, 15 years old

My sweet little boy. We rescued you from the shelter when you were four. The scared little boy who hated to be picked up, turned into such a loving boy, who gave kisses and loved his ears scratched. I hope you find Bobo at the Bridge and enjoy playing with each other. I miss you and thank you for making the 11 years you were with us so wonderful. You be a good boy! I love you!
Mommy



Pokey Soria - November 2002, 5 years, 2 months old

I'm writing this memorial for my Mother's beloved dachshund, Pokey. My Mom bought Pokey from a breeder - I guess you could say Pokey was the runt of the litter. Mom adored Pokey so much that the dog never had to eat dog food. Mom personally would prepare Pokey's food, or buy Pokey her favorite hamburgers from McDonald's. I know it dosen't sound like the best thing to feed a dog, but Pokey was the Princess. What ever the Princess wanted she got. Pokey was loyal to Mom. My Mom and Pokey had a tight bond. Pokey would go to work with Mom, on walks, and greet my Mom every morning with plenty of kisses. Pokey was a very excitable dog she would run all around the house in and out of her doggie door. Pokey was full of life and love. I know Mom has fond memories of Pokey wagging her tail and barking excitedly to her pulling up in the driveway from work. Pokey couldn't wait to jump inside the car and kiss Mom hello. Mom and Pokey comforted one another and would watch television together. Everyday after work Mom would talk to Pokey about her day and any problems she may have had, Pokey had her subtle way of making my Mom feel better, just by sitting and listening to her and licking her hands.

I am writing this to remember Pokey and to help my Mom grieve over her beautiful dog.
Pokey tragically died in an accident on 19 November 2002. My Mom lost a very close companion and a dear friend, whom I know she will meet up with again at the Rainbow Bridge. We all will miss and love Pokey and keep our memories close to our hearts.



Rudi - November 2002, 13 years, 8 months, 13 days old

My little puppy Rudi. So much love given and received. How can such a small beautiful animal extract such feelings of grief? My heart is broken. You were there for me always. I love you little puppy boy, Always have,always will. I'll see you in heaven little mate... your Dad



Bo Jackson Mansur - November 2002, 11 years, 5 months old


Bo, who celebrated when we returned home.
Bo, who made sure we went to bed on time.
Bo, who never let us sleep in alone.
Bo, who made sure we made spagetti at least twice a month.
Bo, lord of his own yard, chaser of kitties and squirrels.
Bo, who chose me as his man and gave me absolute adoration.
Goodbye for now old friend, we will be together again, wait for me, I will come to you.



Apollo - November 2002, 11 months old

Apollo, I never realised just how important you had become to me. I know I sometimes got upset at your little accidents in the house. What I would give to have one of those accidents now. I still miss you dearly everyday. I know the pain will probably lessen in time but the memories will stay as strong. I am just thankful that it was very quick. We never thought you would get hit in your own driveway. I will continue to take care of brother and adopted brothers until it's time for them to cross the Bridge with you. Apollo, I am so very sorry this had to happen. You will always have my heart. WE LOVE YOU ALWAYS!!! LOVE, DEL, DEANNA, JORDAN, BO, R.C., TIGER, ZEUS, and CHARLIE



Maggie Waggie - November 2002, 10 years old

I miss my little girl. I have three sons and since I'd never have a girl, I adopted Maggie. She was my special puppy and I'll never forget her.



Charlie-Bud-Bud - November 2002, 17 years, 9 months, 2 days old


Your given name was Charlie but when Dad was so sick and you where always with him your name changed to Bud- Bud, or Mr B. You where a wonderful source of comfort and support for us both in good times and in bad. You helped when we lost your sister, you always seemed to know when we needed your love and affection during bad and sad times. And you also brought such joy to us everyday of your life. We miss you so much, we know you're with your sister now. There is not a day or moment that goes by that we don't think of you and wish you where still here. So sleep well my little boy until we meet again.

Love, Mom and Dad



Miki - November 2002, 15 years old

Miki gave us 15 wonderful years. I'm stricken sad now that he is gone, I believe that someday we will be re-united. Miki will always have a special place in my heart.



Schwarzkopf - November 2002, 3 months old

My baby boy was only three months old. He was born with tear in his chest wall. The vet told me that this is usually caused by a blow to the dog's side but since my baby was always inside with me there is no way that could of happened. So the next guess was that he had to have been born with it. This was my first litter of puppies and my mama dog only had him and his sister. I am keeping his sister.This was the first time I had ever had to go through something like this. All I can do is spoil the ones I have to find comfort.

Abigail Pellegrino - November 2002, 1 years, 6 months old

Abigail, the most precious black and tan dachshund. 'Abby' had such personality and attitude that could make anyone laugh. Abby went to doggy heaven to make little children happy who needed a pet. Abby could make a bad day a great day as she could make anyone laugh!

We all love and miss Abigail dearly.

Love you, Mommy, Kathy, and Ron



Blaze - November 2002, 4 years old

My beloved Blaze was what I would like to refer as my god. I couldn't stand being with out him. But now that it has happened I am in the worst grief of my life. I hope that we will be joined together at the Rainbow Bridge and share our love and happiness for each other once again. I love you Blaze!



Rusty 'Egor Bathazar' - November 2002, 12 years old

Mamma Loves Rusty, yes Mamma Do!
Daddy loves Rusty, yes Daddy Do!

We will always love you Rusty and you are still here, watching over Mamma and Daddy. We can't wait until we meet again.

I love you very much!!



Pepper Ann (Poo) - November 2002, 4 years, 6 months old


My precious Pepper,
I miss you so terribly. Not a day goes by that you're not on my mind. You were the sweetest and most loving dog and I couldn't have loved you more. I hate so much that you are not here with me but I know God needed you for a very special reason. You'll always be my precious baby girl.



Tasha - November 2002, 13 years old

I still cannot believe you are gone, my little Wee. Momma misses and loves you very much! I hope you are eating all the Pupperoni's that you want. Always remember, Tasha, that we are T and T - like dynomite!



Adolph DoggieMan - November 2002, 14 years, 6 months old

Adolph, my love - there are no words to express how much you meant to me or how much I miss you. You were my best friend, companion, child, lover. No matter how bad things got, I always took comfort in the thought that 'well, I have Adolph. Adolph is waiting for me. Everything will be all right once I'm with Adolph.' You always could put a smile on my face, ease my loneliness, comfort me and make everything alright again. I remember waking up at night, alone, frightened and then realising when I heard you softly breathing next to me, touched you, held you, that you were with me and as long as you were there, I was okay. You were my lifeline. You saved my life. The best thing that ever happened to me was finding you. I know you always felt the same way. That day we met, I not only rescued you but you rescued me. Oh how I miss you. I pray we will be together again some day. Until then, watch over me, my angel.



Rusty T-Bone - November 2002, 2 years, 5 months old

Rusty, my loving baby, I miss you more than any words could ever say. You were my only true love and you gave me all yours back 10 times more you will never be forgotten and I'll love you forever.

Rusty loved to sleep in bed with me and my husband - right between us under the covers on his back and he loved to ride the four-wheeler. In the car he ways cuddled with me and he would never go outside while it was raining. My husband would kill birds and Rusty would go get them. We never thaught him that - he just did it. When he would see then gun he'd get so happy.

He was simply the best dog ever. I love you, Rusty. Months have passed and I still go to your grave each day and bring you flowers. Please know I loved you more than anything.



Lexie - November 2002, 6 months old

To my little princess. You put a smile on my face everyday. No matter what happened you were always there cuddling on my lap. I miss you very much and know that you are having fun with all of the other puppies. Your energy wore me out at times, but it kept me young at heart. You may not have been in my life for very long, but it was long enough for me to attach myself to you and love you more than anything. I will see you in my dreams. Love, your momma
