Lucky Verster -
September 2007, approximately 15 years old
When we rescued you on 4 December 1999 from Animal Anti-Cruelty they
felt you had very little chance of surviving your terrible abusive
injuries caused by cruel humans, but when you ran out of that cage into
my arms, I knew you were going to make it. And you did my boy! You
endured so many health issues throughout your life; one being blindness.
Through it all you never complained. All you ever wanted was love,
snuggles in bed and oh, your food, how you loved your food, Luck. Your
little tail always wagged and those sad little eyes were always shining
with happiness even though they could not see. Your unconditional love
will always be in our hearts. You were your Dad's constant companion,
even waiting for him whilst he was having a bath!
If a dog of any breed could be an inspiration and restore one's soul,
then it must surely be you, Lucky. Our precious little man; the gifts
you gave us here on earth will always be remembered with love. Give our
love to Nina, Simone, and Titch, and play nicely together.
May God hold you in his loving arms until we are together again.
R.I.P. Special one, we will always love you.
Your everloving Mom and Dad

Lucky was the sweetest dog I ever knew. I will always
love and miss her dearly. She was my best friend! I miss her so much! I
hope to see her again in heaven.

Thank you, Charly for all the wonderful times we had. You saved our family peace and rescued our poor little Bobby after his hard time in the shelter. You were more than just a dog...my little brother.
Howee - September 2007, 16 years old
When I felt the call for motherhood, I knew exactly what kind of baby I wanted. Howee, you were my baby. My little southern belle from Georgia. You brought me 16 years of joy. I will always love you and never forget you.

It Was To Be!
It was hard to see me grow so weak,
When pain kept me from my sleep,
You did what had to be done,
For this last battle could not be won.
You were so sad, I understand;
You did not let grief stay your hand.
For this day more than all the rest,
Your love for me has stood the test.
We've had so many happy years -
What had to come can hold no fears.
You didn't want me to suffer so;
My time had come, so let me go.
You kept me home where my needs were 'tend
You stayed with me until the end.
You held me firm and spoke lovingly to me
Until my eyes could no longer see.
I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
I know you'll grieve - it had to be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years -
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.
Mit ewiger Liebe
Ruderic von Winterbauer
