Shadow was a loving French bulldog who followed us wherever we went. She adored food of course, but especially popcorn, chips, and any doggie cookies. She swam like a champ in our pool and loved every minute by splashing and swimming. She was very particular in many ways and growled whenever she didn’t get her way- but it was fine to us. She only knew her new twin baby brother and sister 3 short months but she sniffed them and accepted them into our home. She also loved all stuffed animals, especially purple cow, polar bear, and her birthday cake toy. She would hump them all the time. But, my favorite memory of her is just cuddling and laying practically on top of me. She was my forever friend, and I miss her and love her SO much.
We rescued Molly when she was 18 yer old. She was tied to a tree in a ditch on the side of the road, because her owner had left an abusive situation and no where to go or keep her. Despite the abuse and neglect that had happened to her in her life, Molly was sweet and loving. Molly was a sweet loving mare, loved kids and would follow you around if you had a baby with you. She was happy just to be loved on by the children and loved to give pony rides for them. Unfortunately this last year was just too much for Molly. Her past abuse had lead to arthritis and founder. When the cold weather started, she just could not keep going. Molly past quietly. As if she was just relieved to go to sleep, Molly lay down, rested her head. She was 23 years old, when she passed.
He was found in the desert covered with over 100 ticks and his head sunken in from his muscles starting to deteriorate. He was nursed back to health and became a lifer in my rescue Animals, People and Environment Action. He was a funny, stubborn, loving dog that loved to jump for joy, he is missed so much.
Buddy was Loved and Amazing
Buddy was an amazing dog. Always happy, always love-able, never met anyone he didn’t like! He had life saving heart surgery at the age of 2, at the UF Small Animal Hospital, he had a rare heart condition and even had a medical article written about him to help save life’s in the future. Every single day of those next 9 years we had with him were wonderful and truly a blessing. He passed away peacefully today December 28th,2017 from Liver Cancer. We did not know he had cancer nor did he show any symptoms, he was such a strong fighter and such a resilient being, I can only wish to be half as strong as he was! We all loved him so much and are already missing him terribly. His wings were ready, but our hearts were not. 💔🐾🐾
Mugly was famous for being "Ugly"
12/27/2017 - Peterborough, England
Mugly was loved by everyone who met him or followed him. He has a host of friends all over the world, It began by being crowned the Worlds’s Ugliest Dog 2012. And that was an experience I will never forget. Mugly passed away on 12/27/2017.
Mugly, who was crowned Britain’s Ugliest Dog in 2005 before taking the title of World’s Ugliest Dog in 2012, died just days after Christmas following a battle with doggy dementia. The famous Chinese Crested 13-year-old mutt suffered a debilitating stroke on Christmas Eve that left him unable to walk, but the ‘little fighter’ made it through Christmas Day before passing away in owner Bev Nicholson’s arms yesterday after his condition rapidly deteriorated. Bev, 54, from Peterborough, Cambs, said she is ‘truly heartbroken’ over the sudden loss of her beloved pet and ‘can’t imagine’ her life without him. Mugly was left unable to walk after suffering the stroke The 54-year-old, who runs her own fashion business, said: ‘I feel like I have lost a part of me. There is an element of me that thought he would last forever. ‘For it to happen like this, so suddenly and unexpectedly, has been the hardest thing. NHS has done Britain proud in Rohingya refugee crisis ‘I just can’t believe it’s real and he is actually gone. I have five other dogs, but our home has never felt so empty and quiet. ‘It’s really strange. The other dogs are silent which isn’t like them at all, they’re usually always up and playing around but they’ve just been laying down. It’s such an eerie calmness.’ Mugly was abandoned at three days old due to his unfortunate appearance and Bev adopted him as an eight-week-old puppy. The pup grew a global fan base for his peculiar looks – winning accolades across the world – and also previously won a ‘most heroic hound’ award.

Ludo The Hiker
Ludo was Bonnie's hiking buddy. He went absolutely everywhere with her...She has told me "I never realized what a great conversationalist he was..."
Miraculous Bear Bear
Bear Bear was the first dog my wife and I took in together. At 6 weeks she was deaf and the breeder had no use for her. She was Vet checked but miraculously by 6 months of age she had hearing! She was a smart, tiny (3.5 lb) little long hair Chihuahua...and the reason we began our dog rescue, Cochise Canine Rescue. I miss her every day and cannot believe she is gone!
Dozer, Taken Too Soon
It means so much to me to have my sweet boy Dozer remembered in a place that is beautiful and vibrant- much like he was. I've attached a picture of him at six months old- he was a big boy! A Lab-Dane mix. He was my best friend. He was hit by a car right before his first birthday.
