Alphie

Alphie is such a smart, well behaved, regal looking GSP it’s no wonder this family fell in love with him immediately.

Tanner – passed away July 7, 2013

Today we put our sweet dog Tanner to sleep. He had a very rare and aggressive cancer called histiocytic sarcoma which had metastasized in his lung and in his groin. We tried chemo but it did not make him feel very good so we decided to let the illness run its course instead of putting him through chemo.  He hung on for a lot longer than we thought, having some bad days but also some very good days, filled with yummy food and trips to run off-leash at the dog park. Every time we thought it was “time” he would rally and […]

Frida Kahlo – passed away July 3, 2013

Frida Kahlo, my princess of perfection, came to live in her forever home, that is with me, in Oct 2006 and changed my life in the most rewarding and delightful ways imaginable. Now there is a hole in my life and in my heart that cannot be filled or replaced. Frida Kahlo was incredibly smart, loyal, patient, sneaky, loving, gorgeous, stubborn, playful, uncomplaining, and much more. Frida loved to eat the crumbs from anywhere–but never dared to eat a non-food–eg a foil wrapper or a wrapper with the leftover scone or cheese or apple. Frida carefully dissected any spoonful of […]
