Spirit

Spirit and I found each other when he was 14 months. After 3 trial runs with other moms, I became his forever mom. He was aptly named because, in turn, he became my Spirit lifter, Spirit guide, and my furry soul mate. I always said he came “no assembly required” because he never needed a lick of training. He passed violently and unexpectedly the day before Halloween 2016 of an undetected and fast growing mass on his spleen which ruptured. I will never stop missing him and I will forever be grateful for his company, his love and his Spirit.

Quincy, our sweet little gentleman

We found Quincy through a fox terrier rescue. He was like a stuffed toy come to life, sweet and gentle and so full of love. He didn’t fetch, or play with toys, or learn many tricks, but he was the most quietly affectionate little man who loved being hugged and kissed (and eating). We only had three years with him, but he filled our lives with joy and made us laugh every day. We loved him to the moon and back, and miss him every day.

Barnacle

I was lucky enough to become this dog’s mom when I met his dad. Our vet called him a “lemon” and he had every medical problem in the world and never stopped barking. Despite that, he was the sweetest, kindest and most loyal dog in the world. He loved to cuddle and give kisses and would always make you feel better if you were upset. He was taken way too soon at the young age of 10 but will be in our hearts forever! I love you Barn!!

Remembering our best girl, our husky, Rohan

A bait dog from a fight dog ring that I (Alex) rescued prior to meeting Jason. We were a packaged deal and she and Jason forged their own special relationship. We had 12.5 years with this sassy lady who always kept us on our toes and taught us the importance of loving with your whole heart.
