Fritz, son of Dixie Queen - September 2008, 16 years, 6 months old

We had to make that heart-breaking choice today, seeing that old age was getting the best of you. We saw you come into the world, and we were there, with broken hearts, seeing you leave this world. You were always a part of our family, watching you grow up, with our own children. Along with your mother, Dixie, Gretchen, and Otto, our little wiener family was complete. I know that Dixie is waiting for you today at the Bridge. Together, you both will never be alone again. You will always be in our hearts, and one day we will all be together, without any pain and worries.

In memory of my beautiful girl, who fought so hard to stay. you will always have a place in my heart.

Pudge - September 2008, 7 months old

My sweet Pudge - I still cry for you. I am so sorry you left us so soon. I wish we could have had the chance to teach you about cars and how dangerous they are. I love you, my sweet son.

Sugar Lynn - September 2008, 18 years old

Our dear sweet Sugar Lynn

My little Sugar Lynn was just a babe at five weeks when I held her for the first time. She was so small and looked so not like a dachsund. Her nose was not pointed and her little body was not long. I was new at seeing baby dachsunds. Time passed by and every day she seemed to change. Her nose began to grow and her body grew longer and longer. Right before our eyes she grew into a beautiful l'il doxie.

Her personality was as sweet as her name. She never offered to bite anyone or even growl. She was loved like a child by everyone in our family. She communicated with me and her dad by expressions of her face and actions, which we grew to know very well.

I miss her so much. I know she's running free with all the other little doxies at the Bridge. She was with us for 18 wonderful, loyal, loving years and took her last breath with me by her side. She stared at me until she went into a heavenly sleep. I cried and held her so tight, but I knew she was so tired and ready to go to rest. Before she left me, I prayed to God that I loved her enough to let her go. God took her quitely that September day. We have a memorial grave site for her in our back yard.

Although she's not with us in body, she is with us in our hearts forever.

Mommy and Dad miss you, Sugar, and think of you each day and night, when we start to go to bed. We always think about us tucking you in bed as we always did, darling. We look out our bedroom window and look at the memorial and whisper, 'I love you Sugar. Goodnight'.

With All Our Love,
Mommy and Dad

Stella - Lady Spanklin' Costello del Carver - September 2008, 17 years, 7 months old

Stella, as she was actually known, came into my life at a real turning point. I was soon to move 1000 miles and didn't really need another dog. Which, of course, didn't matter. I fell in love almost the minute I saw her.

She joined her dachshund brother, Abbott, along with many other brothers and sisters, after a good life, a too-short life (though forever wouldn't have been long enough).

I love you baby girl. Cheech, Griffin and I miss you very, very much.


Uneetoile Miss Bella - September 2008, 8 years old
