"There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in the company of animals. It is a cycle unlike any other. To those who have never lived through its turnings and walked its rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with full knowledge that they will be broken seems incomprehensible. Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given." - Suzanne Clothier, author

Molly came to us as a foster in poor physical condition from a pelvic infection, inadequate nutrition, and having never known, at age 5, a warm bed or a gentle touch. She had every reason to hate humans but the first time she came out of her crate voluntarily and approached me with a tentative but hopeful look in her beautiful eyes, I knew I wasn't going to entrust her care to anyone else. Excellent vet care, good nutrition and an abundance of love was all it took for this pup to thrive. It was such a pleasure to see her enjoy her life and I miss her sweet smiling face so much. My last gift to her is a donation to the Dr Volkmann fund in her memory and in honor of the thousands of critters in the state of Missouri who are unable to escape their terrible conditions. Till we meet again my Molly Moo.
My dear Simon, I miss you so much. You were the most wonderful dog ever. You were my little buddy. You were such a character. You made everyone laugh. I loved all your kisses and hugs and taking you for walks. I loved the way you did your own hair. You were my little cookie monster. I treasure the day we meet again. I love you, Simon. Life isn't the same without you. Have fun across the Rainbow Bridge where you are healthy and happy again! Give lots of kisses to all your old and new friends! I'll see you again soon! Grama and Aunt Sonya miss you too!
Ty was our beloved friend and companion who crossed the bridge on March 14th, 2022. He was an old soul, gentle and kind to all beings. He will live forever in our hearts.
Mollie was a beloved family pet who went from puppy mill mama to treasured companion.
Tonka Robbins was part Mini English Bulldog and part Beagle. Although Tonka was mostly quiet, his personality was loud. We nicknamed him Monkey. He was stubborn, dramatic and loved his family hard. Our house feels empty without the snoring, whines for treats and our Monkey to step over. Tonka will forever be in our hearts.

A face not easily forgotten.

We had too little
time with you.
Little Dog passed away on 6/9/2020 after 16 years of wonderful companionship. She was her mommy’s shadow and followed her everywhere. Little Dog is sorely missed.
One night I looked into the sky,
And spotted a star that resembled our guy.
I saw two eyes as dark as coal,
And two ears that perked as straight as a pole.
Then I heard a sound that I swear was Clyde's bark,
So, I tilted and squinted but it was much too dark.
I knew if it was Clyde, he'd bark again & again,
And he'd be on a bed of which he'd defend.
He was just 3 1/2 lbs and so hard to see,
But I knew by that bark, it had to be he.
So, I waited very still and sat there that night, I wouldn't give up without a good fight.
Then sure enough, I saw a small peek, To show me the sign, he was no longer weak.
That little tongue, it still hung from his mouth, Then I saw a smile as he ran all about.
It was just like he did when we'd play stomp our feet, To see him so happy, it just couldn't be beat.
Then I knew as much as we wanted him back, There was a twinkle that said but there's nothing I lack.
Then I heard a faint sound like You'll see someday,
I love you but here...there's just so much to say.
I know when you get here, I promise, you'll see,
Then his little white tail waved goodbye to me.
I heard don't be sad or beat yourselves up,
And I realized then, in my throat was a lump.
That our Clyde, he was happy and oh so free, After 20 years here, I had to let it be.
That star forever will be shining so bright,
For he came to ease our pain that one starry night.
I'll always believe that that little ball of fur, Was now in the Heavens with our other barks and purrs
So, we will try really hard to not grieve him each day,
'Cuz he made it a point to tell us his way.
We miss you so much, you have to know still, And we'll work on your tribute to end puppy mills.
You'll be our ambassador, the Clyde Act it'll be called, And maybe just maybe, we'll stop them through MAAL.
We love you sweet boy, so enjoy, but just wait, 'Cuz we'll see you again at those big Pearly Gates!
Dedicated to our Puppy Mill "grandpa" Clyde
