Scout – passed away October 28, 2017

We said goodbye to Scout this morning. He’d slowed down a bunch recently but was still eager to join us for chores every evening. Last night he had mustered the energy for a stroll in the pasture while Colby, Mickey, and Woodie ran around like pointers do. He seemed to soak up the sunshine. This morning he could no longer rise…it was time… He came to me in my time of need and we had seven great years together. Godspeed my dear friend…give my love to Finn and Coconut…may you be reunited with your sound body and boisterous voice…until we […]

Dante (Kent in rescue) – passed away October 20, 2017

It is with great sorrow that I have to let you know that Dante (adopted as Kent) has gone over the rainbow bridge. He was the sweetest and most loving dog ever. A cuddly boy who loved his routines: Got up at 6 AM to go for a run in the garden, always the same counter-clockwise turn, come in and have his breakfast. Go for a walk with his dog friend always on the hunt for something. We never got to learn his manners when putting his leash on, he was crazy happy to go out for his walks and […]

Willy

WILLY is adopted! Willy was surrendered at the ripe age of 12.5 years. His senior owner had become unable to care for Willy the way he deserved. We found Willy to be pretty frisky for an old guy. He could pull on his leash with the best of them, chase after squirrels, and pursue the ladies, as well. He was not done with living, not by a long shot. Lucky for Willy, we found him a couple of good temporary foster care situations (thank you Stephanie and Patty), and then someone who’s been active in our rescue group for many […]

Jada

JADA is adopted! A job change led someone to surrender this super sweet and talented dog to the shelter. The minute she was sprung, she started making friends with everyone she met. Her first foster home fell in love with her super soft fur, her insistence on play and petting, her distain for kibble and her love of carrots. (Thanks Robin, and then Mark, for fostering Jada). This girl was trained for upland hunting, and she now has a forever home with lots of open space to roam, a dad who likes to hunt game birds, two small canine buddies, […]

James – passed away October 4, 2017

Rest in Peace, James Von Miller.  You were quite the character.  I loved when you’d get a wild hair up your butt and start romping around like a goat.  You were a big part of my life for over a year and I miss you.  No more mountains to climb, sweet boy.  Run free! Love, M

Fawn – passed away October 1, 2017

Fawn brought a lot of happiness to a lot of people. It started with Ron the day Fawn adopted him. In the 10+ years with Ron, she was a great dog. Fawn was quite the squirrel hunter and a fantastic swimmer. As she aged Fawn just got sweeter though her nuzzling we affectionately referred to as the ‘alligator death roll’. Fawn never had a health issue, not even so much as an ear infection, she was the model GSP and loved by everyone who met her. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with cancer and had only a few months to live. […]
