Hutson 9/9/2002 – 9/15/2014
All pets are special, but my third golden retriever, Hutson, was an angel and my kindred spirit. From puppyhood to senior, I enjoyed his gentle spirit and still miss him every day.
My Daisy 10/20/2000 – 10/29/2013
Her name was Daisy
For the yellow blotches in her fur
Sassy as the day is long
That was my little girl
Fast as lightning
She would run down the hall
Surprisingly knew her name
And would come when I’d call
When I was holding her
She gave sweet kisses on my nose
As she was sleeping
I’d tickle her pink little toes
Now that she has passed
And we are far apart
Daisy is still my sweet baby girl
Forever in my heart
Dusty 3/17/1989 – 9/18/2008
Dusty, a beautiful dilute calico, became a part of our family in spring of 1989. She was supposed to be a family pet but we all knew she was mine. At the age of 7 I did not know how much having her would impact my life. She went from allowing me to dress her in baby clothes to warming my lap after a long day at work.We grew and matured together. When I got my first apartment, second apartment and finally my house she was there. I look back now and see that it was comforting that even though my life changed a lot that she was always by my side. Dusty was the constant in my ever changing life. Sadly Dusty passed away in September 2008. She was 19 1/2 years old. She had a tough exterior but once you earned her trust you were able to see that she was affectionate, playful and a little silly. She and I are a lot alike that way and perhaps that’s why we clicked. Dusty was more than just a pet she was my friend. She was always there for me and I miss her. Although she is no longer by my side I know that she is always with me. Animals have a special way of impacting our lives and leaving a lasting imprint on our hearts.
Lola 6/2007 – 5/23/2015
Lola was so much more than just a dog. She was my best friend and truly a part of my family. From the moment we brought her home and she met our other dog, the family loved her. She puffed her fur up and barked at Brownie before she peed all over. She wasn’t as tough as she wanted everyone to believe. Lola was so expressive that my parents and I always wished she could talk to us. She was a constant companion and helped me get through my schooling to become a CVT, whether she wanted to or not. Even by simply laying with me while I studied, she was always there. Lola loved to be with us and was especially fond of having her tennis balls thrown, but she also loved to cuddle on the sofa with us to watch TV. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge far too soon, and we will never forget all of the memories we have of her. She took a piece of my heart that day. Mom, Dad, Ryan and I will always, always love and miss you, Lola! We will never forget you and you will forever be in our hearts!
Millie 10/26/1999 – 1/24/2012
It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.
Mr. B 2000 – 6/10/16
A stray who walked into my life. I named him Mr. B after a polo pony I knew. I am so thankful he chose me to be his friend. He was my best friend for many years and will always be in my heart. Mr. B, I miss you every day.
