Rosie was born in May 1998. She was adopted from the Guardian Angel Basset Rescue, Dwight,
Illinois in 2002. She struggled with Addison’s disease and took daily medication. For nine months
last year she lost the use of her hind legs. She learned to get around with a doggy wheelchair.
overcome by her disease and died in my arms on the way to the hospital. She will be missed
beyond what words could ever express.

I'll Give You A Daisy

Thank you for taking your turn at cleaning the cat box..
Thank you for keeping me straight on my diet by saving me from all those loaves of bread just on the edge of the
counter..
Thank you for the extra runs down Camp Ernst Road (into oncoming traffic)...
Thank you for reminding us when it was time to pet the dog...
Thank you for taking the time to take my bath towels out of the bathroom...you were right, air drying was much
better for my skin....
Thank you for plotting Louisville on the map as four pukes away...
Thank you for graciously changing your name from Bailey to Harlow....
Thank you for greeting us at the door wanting to share your toys with us...
Thank you for always enjoying what Santa had put in your stocking...
Thank you for tolerating all the fosters that came in and out your door...knowing that a good home was to be found
for them...
Thank you for loving your family unconditionally...
Thank you for knowing I couldn't make THE decision for you....
Thank you for knowing that it would make bad memories to for you to leave on Spencer's birthday....
But most of all....thank you for sharing more than 10 years of your life with us.  We love you very much.

Daisy was scheduled to be put to sleep December 1, but I chose to cancel. Instead I asked the vet to look at her
one last time to make sure I was doing the right thing.  It was also our youngest son's birthday and felt that her
departure would make birthdays to come sour.  Daisy died peacefully in her sleep around 12:30 am December 2.  
Somehow she just knew.

Deeply loved and missed by Ron, Julie, Dustin, Daniel, Mark and Spencer

cannot believe someone abandoned you.  You trained me well over the years.  You never complained, even when
I kept moving us from place to place to work.  You just were there at the end of the day, waiting for walks, treats,
and of course belly rubs.  Never mad, impatient, or accusatory.  Even when we spent the winter in Michigan,
I miss your howling serenade to me, during my morning shower, letting me know it was time for your  walk and
breakfast.  I still wake in the night hoping to hear you clickity-clicking back to your bed after your 0130 yard patrol.  
I catch myself “seeing you in the corner of my eye” in your usual napping/lurking spots.  It seems strange after all
this time to have no one with whom to share my meals.  (Regardless if I wanted to or not)

You left a hole.  A large, saggy, ear flapping, burping, hair molting, muddy pawed, snoring, gorgeous little girl hole
in my soul.  I just wish we could have another sun filled day.  My dear Thunder Butt, I will see you at the bridge.  
Just keep chasing flies and squirrels while you wait for me.  Please, try to stay out of the water, you know it makes
you stink.

Bailey
tired and went home.  I miss her so much I look around everyday just to find things of hers to know she
was here.  I just can't believe she is not home.  I truly pray there is some place for us to go after here
and that there is a place for our pets. i will forever miss you Bailey and I love you so much.
Henry
Oh Henry, you are gone but not forgotten.  It has been three long years.  We want you to know that you
were the smartest, craziest, most caring dog we will probably ever have the privilege to have as part of our
family.  Essie and Bruce are all that is left now.  It is quieter in the house now, not to mention easier to not
You had to go far too soon from us but they were memorable. We love you and you are in our heart,
always.  Esmeralda still loves Bruce but you were her soul-mate.

but I still was not prepared for how much I could miss him, how big a void I would feel.  He was my big
man and I will always love him so much.

Cody had a special bounce to his waddle, great big squishy paws, and huge ears that stood up like an
elephants when he was excited.  He had a wonderful, deep basset bark, and a kind, friendly disposition.  
The first few years I had him I was so fortunate to be able to take him to work with me.  He was the best
office hound ever.  He would get in his chair until lunch.  We would eat, and then go for a walk around
the small town where the office was.  Cody was a great ambassador for the breed and made many
friends.  And he LOVED to eat.  In all, he was the most handsome, wonderful basset I have ever known.

Rest easy, big man.  I love you.
