“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.”
Junior was a singleton puppy out of our breeding of Delilah to Jimmy J. From the beginning, he was extremely special. He was born premature and very small. He was was such a fighter and I know he did everything he could to stay with me as long as he could. He was only with me for 16 days, but in those 16 days he taught me so many things. He took a piece of my heart with him when he left but I am so grateful to have known him.
In February 2010, during our Mastiff babies' c-section, the Veterinarian allowed them to stay under anesthesia too long and killed all 9 of these precious babies.
You have a special place, Dear Lord that I know you always keep. A special place reserved for dogs who peacefully fell asleep.
A place with fluffy pillows, and a yard for hiding bones. With maybe a little babbling creek, that rushes over stones.
With wide green fields and flowers, for those who never knew, of running, playing freely under a sky of perfect blue.
Lord, I know you keep this special place, and so to you I pray, for 9 oh so special babies who came to you today.
They each will be dearly missed, Dear Lord, those special loves of mine. But now they'll romp and play, in your land that's so divine.
Speak to my babies softly, please, with hugs and warm " hello's"
They're a special gift to you, Dear Lord, from me who loved them so.......

Dandee passed over the rainbow bridge on 1/10/10. She went peacefully and the last gift we could give her was to take her pain away- she gave us so many gifts! She was an amazing girl with an awesome personality.You couldn't help but love Dandee. She taught me the wonderful nature of this breed and I am so blessed to have known her. She will forever be missed!
She is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. She is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. She has told me a thousand times over that I am her reason for being; by the way she rests against my leg; by the way she thumps her tail at my smallest smile; by the way she shows her hurt when I leave without taking her. (I think it makes her sick with worry when she is not along to care for me.)
When I am wrong, she is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, she clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, she is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, she ignores it. When I succeed, she brags.
Without her, I am only another person.
With her, I am all-powerful.
She is loyalty itself.
She has taught me the meaning of devotion.
With her, I know a secret comfort and a private peace.
She has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant.
Her head on my knee can heal my human hurts. Her presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. She has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever - in case I need her...........
And I expect I will - as always have......
