Liam

Liam

I fell in love with Liam the second his litter was surrendered to the shelter I volunteer at. I applied right away and I brought him home a week later on Valentine's Day. He's now training to be a therapy dog and he is the love of my life.

Chrissy

Chrissy

In 2009, I brought home my first shelter dog. I had always owned large dogs and decided to find something smaller. I searched on Petfinder until I noticed Chrissy, who had been in the shelter's prison program for nearly a year. I drove 3 hours to meet her and knew she was mine. She made herself at home right away and I could never imagine coming home without her greeting me at the door. She's truly the queen of the house but she's also my best friend.

Blacky Jr.

Blacky Jr.

"Look at that. You stole my dog.", I so frequently heard from my grandpa. My 9 year old self couldn't help but fall head over heels for the tiny black ball of fur. I'd spend hours sitting and playing with her. When he passed away in 2012, his will made it clear - Blacky was mine. But she always had been. As is the Labrador nature, she is kind, gentle, and oh so loving. I've never had a better friend in my lifetime and I don't think I ever will. She is the living embodiment of compassion and love. Or maybe that's just my Lab biased showing. ;)

Wyatt

In Loving MemoryIn Loving Memory

Wyatt was a short-lived member of my family but he will forever be a member of my heart. I walked into the dog shelter and browsed for a bit, then I stopped in front of his kennel. He was 10 months old and already weighed about 100lbs. He had deep brown eyes and a big smile on his sweet face. He jumped up and started trying to lick my fingers through the fence. After filling out the application, I rode the whole way home in the back seat of the car with him. When we got home, he was so excited. We played fetch for a few hours. At one point, being a big goofy pup, he ran head first into the fence. He loved to cuddle and thought himself a lap dog. The next day, Wyatt began acting sick and started throwing up. The shelter assured us he was too old to have parvo and they decided he probably had kennel cough. We took him to the vet and sure enough, he tested positively for parvovirus. He got sick so quickly and the vet decided it would be in his best interest to put him to sleep. Though he wasn't in my life very long, I am forever grateful for the days I did have him. I'm happy that his last days on Earth were in a home where he was loved, rather than in a kennel. He passed away with a heart full of love and most importantly, a family. I'll never forget him.

Sherman

Sherman

In Loving MemoryIn Loving Memory

Everyone who has ever owned a dog has secretly picked a favorite. We try to deny that we have, but it's the truth. Sherman is mine. He was a part of my family for a year before I was born and he was here waiting for me when my mom brought me home. From that day forward, my love for dogs soared. Sherman was the epitome of tolerance. As a toddler, I would ride around on his back and call him my horsie. When my feet were cold, I'd stick them under his belly to get them warm. I would play in the driveway and put my favorite pieces of gravel in his mouth for safekeeping. One of these times, my neighbor's dog wandered over and began growling at me. I got scared and ran to get my mom. The dog chased me, but Sherman fought him to keep him away. Sherman loved to watch Lassie movies, eat bologna, and take naps with me. In 2009, we found out he had cancer. He had surgery and the vet didn't think he would live more than a month. To the vet's amazement, Sherman lived a whole other year. He said Sherman must have known how much he was loved, and he must have loved us back fiercely to hang on so long. At the end of his life, he had suffered from arthritis for years and couldn't walk anymore. On St. Patrick's Day 2010, he passed away. He was my horsie, my Old Man, my protector, and my best friend.

Sophie

Sophie

In Loving MemoryIn Loving Memory

I'll start by saying Sophie was the sweetest dog I've ever met. In her short life, she had been through 9 homes. It was the same every time: "We didn't know she would get so big." My uncle took her in for a time and promised his friends who had had her before that he would find her a good home. She then came to me. Sophie had been beaten her whole life. She would quiver and shake if I so much as picked up a pencil near her. She wasn't very quick to learn tricks and her housetraining was slow and tedious. My veterinarian said being hit in the head probably contributed to this. Sophie was an angel. She had been through so much but all she wanted to do was love. It didn't take very long for her to begin trusting me and that's when she really began to flourish. She was affectionate, sweet, and spunky. She would jump up to put her paws on my shoulders and lick my face. She didn't realize her size. She took up my whole bed but she just loved to cuddle. In February 2009, my family and I went away for a few days and left my animals in the care of a family friend. One night, he let the dogs out into the yard to go to the bathroom and must have forgotten to latch the gate. Sophie got out and found her way to the pond next to my house. She walked onto the ice and fell through. She couldn't get a grip on the ice and she drowned. It was a complete accident and I place blame on no one. Everything happens for a reason. Sophie had a hard life, but she passed away while in a home where she would've never been harmed or given away. She was such a special girl. I loved her and cared about her very much. She'll always be in my heart.

Blacky Sr.

Blacky Sr.

When I was younger, I always wanted a puppy of my own. My older brother had a Lab and that's exactly what I wanted. One day, my grandpa came home and told me he had a surprise for me. I went into the yard and there was a little black puppy with a bright red collar. Papa said she was mine. I decided to call her Blacky. We had thought she was purebred until we gave her a bath and black shoe polish started running off of her, revealing brindle on her chest and legs. I didn't care - I loved her. We spent years together, taking walks, cuddling, exploring the woods, hunting for mushrooms, playing in the creek, swimming in the pond. She was every kid's dream! She went missing around 2008 along with our other dog, Chocolate, which devastated me. We searched for them, put up posters, and called all of our friends. I was always comforted by the thought that a nice family took them in. I'm not sure where they're at today, but if they ever come home I'd welcome them with open arms.

Chocolate

Chocolate

I was at my friend's house one night and we heard her neighbors yelling. They had a stray dog in their backyard and they were shooting at it with pellet guns. They said he had been around for weeks and wouldn't go away. I called my mom and asked if I could bring him home. She said yes. I lured him to me with food, obviously conflicted over whether or not he should trust me. My brother picked me up and we brought him home. I decided to name him Chocolate after he hurled up a Hershey wrapper. He was a reserved fellow and not super affectionate. He did his own thing. He was very protective of me though. When people talked to me that he didn't know, he stood between us so they couldn't get too close. His love was obvious. He was my baby boy and I loved him with all my heart. In 2008, he went missing along with my other dog, Blacky. We searched and put up posters and called all of our friends to no avail. I don't know where he is today, but if he ever comes home, I'd welcome him with open arms.

Seeley

Seeley

I wanted to share my boy's amazing story. Seeley was purchased as a puppy by a young couple. The man, for who knows what reason, would punish Seeley by beating him with a flashlight. After owning him for about a year, the couple gave Seeley to the woman's father. He lived in an apartment and ended up surrendering Seeley to a rescue after a few months because he knew that a big dog like him wouldn't flourish in an apartment. Seeley arrived to the rescue about 40 pounds underweight and very frightened. The wonderful staff nursed him to health and helped him overcome his fears over the course of several months. The woman at the rescue was worried when she told me this story because she thought I would change my mind about taking him home, but if anything, it assured me I was making the right choice. Seeley has a heart bursting with love and joy. He's such a gentle, calm boy and I am blessed to have him in my life. He has put his undoubtedly rough past behind him and he's ready to move on. He's currently training to become a therapy dog.
