We said goodbye to our sweet Ilsa yesterday (July 2). She was our first foster in 2010. We knew she was ours the second she walked through the door. She was the sweetest, most gentle dog we’ve ever known. She happily welcomed 17 more foster pups into our home. We’ll miss everything about her — the chirpy bark, lush wooly fur, serene nature, slow pace and loyal affection.
With sadness, we said good bye to our sweet girl Cameron. She was a part of our lives for the past 11 years. We included her in as many things as we could. Boating, camping, vacationing, lots of walks, visiting Grandma and Grandpa’s. She had many doggie friends in our neighborhood. We would walk around the block and she would literally stop across the street from one of her friends, Sasha, and look at me, then their house and then back to me asking if it was ok to go visit. When I gave the ok, she ran across the street. She frequently went up to John McKenna’s porch and wanted me to come up and knock on the door, which we did often. She would always want to be in the middle of us when we danced. She loved children and was the best dog our family could ever ask for. Kev gave her daily rub downs and it melted my heart watching him love her❤️. She kept him company when he was up late, asking for a snack or attention or to play. She sat on his foot when storms were on the way. She was such a blessing to our family. Our hearts are heavy. Rest now sweetie. No more pain. We ❤️ you with all our heats. I pray I will see you in heaven some day. Mom, Dad and Mike, please watch over her. Missing you❤️. We love you❤️❤️❤️
