Christmas Eve morning, my father woke me; needing my help with "something" he had seen the day before. Well that "something" was this scared, skinny, wounded dog that Dad had found on the back of the property the day before. He had brought it food and water but the dog wouldn't move. I immediately recognized that something was wrong with his breathing and that his gum color was not good. But he looked up at me with an all too familiar set of Golden eyes and I was determined to help. And as with most emergencies, it is a holiday and I am looking for a vet hospital that is open on Christmas Eve. Luckily, I found one and the veterinarian was nice enough to let me bring this unfortunate pup in. Radiographs (x-rays) revealed the dog had been shot through the chest and had a collapsed lung. I was able to remove the bullet, but knew this little guy had a long recovery ahead of him. Needless to say, he came home with me. I cut my trip a day short, found a pet-friendly hotel, and split the 10 hour trip back to Alabama into 2 legs. I finally decided on a name "Tasso" which is a seasoned, smoked pork roast used to flavor Cajun dishes. He was my new spice in life! He also ended up having heartworms-not a real big surprise, being from Louisiana and not on heartworm prevention. He made it through that treatment and has been living in luxury since. The big joke is that Tasso went from "homeless to hotel" within 48 hours and never went back. I mentioned those golden eyes that won my heart! I had to know if it was just me wishing for my Jolie, that had just lost her battle with cancer, or was there really something there. I ran a DNA test on him and the results revealed that he was 50% basset, 25% golden, and 25% who knows what- a complete Heinz 57. But I found comfort in knowing he was a golden mix after all and feel like Jolie sent him to me so I would get over the pain and loss quicker if I had a new focus. And she was right. Not to mention, one more day in that field, and the little man would not have made it. My Dad joked that Tasso getting shot when he did was the best thing that could have happened to him! And, you know, he was right too!
Diesel was a puppy that someone had abandoned. He was a character. Always wanted to lay on my lap when I crocheted or was watching TV. I miss him and think of him often. He was a silly dog and we loved him!

Abby was an adorable dog that loves to dance around when she played with a bone or rope. We called her the bucking bronco! She was very loving, patient with the other dogs and kind to children. Though she was intimidating to others when they first saw her, they realized just how gentle she was when they met her.

She was the sweetest dog we've ever known and we miss her every day. Rest easy my sweet girl.

Melvin filled our lives and our home with his big presence. He was a great companion and a friend to his fur baby brothers Stimpy, Louie and Bela who predeceased him. We'll miss you always.

Our dear Cleo was abandoned by her mother when she only days old. We promised her we’d never abandon her and we never did. Her scrappy personality was larger than life and she will be dearly missed by her family.

We got Tommy as an 8 week old kitten! He was a kitty full of fun, adventure, and humor! As a young man he brought us many treats through the kitty door including chipmunks and birds.... but they were alive not dead! I think he enjoyed seeing our dismay as we tried to get them out of the house! Tommy was there with our family through all the major milestones and we will miss him terribly! We will love you forever Tommy!

Didn't have a mean bone in him.

Guido was our most talkative cat. He'd meow when he brought us his mouse toys - which he would do several times a day, when he wanted attention, or when he just felt like it. He was our sweet boy and we miss him dearly.
To our sweet baby girl We miss you more than words can speak of. We miss the sweet sound of your precious paws and your sleepy eyes at morning coffee. Most of all we miss the love you gave us every day.

We rescued you as a pup, but you rescued us as you grew. Such a gentle, loving, shy sweet girl. You will be forever remembered. Rest in peace Harper.

To the sweetest fur child to ever grace my home and my life. I miss you terribly, my sweet boy, but am glad you’re no longer in pain. ❤️❤️

Pepper was just a sad little pup when we discovered her at a local shelter. She had been picked up as an abandoned stray. We knew she was the one when we saw her in person... just full of life and energy! We gave her the most loving and happy life. And in return, she gave us companionship and the most affection you could ever ask for. Cancer may have stolen her from us too early, but she will forever be in our hearts.

Remi was my companion. Always by my side. Wherever I went, he was with me. I miss him every day but know the memories we made together will always stay with me, and I am forever grateful for his unconditional love.

Our Mac (Mackie Roo, Woota Woo, Baby Boy, Mackie Bear, Bear) was the sweetest kind of loving. I have had a lot of dogs in my life, but there are always those few extra special ones. Mac was the best of those. We love and miss him daily.

Elliott was a loyal companion for over 19 years, and he definitely earned his nickname, Buddy. He was always by our side and was there to protect us, comfort us, work with us, and celebrate with us as our family evolved from a home with children to a home with grandchildren. He became a part of who are as a family, and we are grateful that we were blessed to have him with us for so long.
Anyone that knows us knew our “Boy,” Cody. Whatever we did he did. He was in every sense of the word “family .” Losing him has been so difficult. My heart has a hole in it the size of a truck. From morning coffee sitting next to me on the couch, to late night homework or tv, life has changed. He was always with me. I loved him with my hole heart and being and I have missed his love , kisses, and those beautiful eyes that twinkled when they saw me come into a room. I know on that day we said goodbye, but I still feel him around me in all the special memories we made together. I know that someday we will be together again. RIP sweet Cody🐶❤️🌈 Love Mom
