This page is dedicated to all of the furbabies
who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2013.
Here, we honor those newest angels in that meadow across the Bridge.
All angels are welcome here, for they were well-loved.

"He was the only Piranha Puppy I’ve ever owned – and until he was about
4 months old we worked diligently to teach him OUCH! and ‘Tiny Bites’ – he matured
into a sweet, stately ‘Elder Gentleman’ by the time he was about 8, tolerated the
cats, and soaked up the sun from the back deck or the arm of the sofa even in July."

"My beautiful boy was loved by many and will never be forgotten. What great
adventures we had and great memories to hold on to. My gratitude to his breeders
Charla Hill and Lisa Hills for the opportunity to love him. My gratitude to the judges
that awarded him to make #5 All Breed Scottish Terriers in 2009. He was a great friend
to the new puppy "Hunter" and my heart mate.
I will always love you MacCartney :-) "

"Today a piece of me died. I lost a very dear friend who loved me unconditionally.
He was always there when I needed him. Helped me get thru some of the most terrible times
in my life and didn’t ask for anything in return. He was my first Scottish Terrier Rescue
and was with me for ten years."

overwhelming desire to please waiting there."
" She truly had to have been the sweetest Scottie ever.
She never met a dog or a person she didn't like. Barley is a bit lost
as he is now the only Scot in the house. It's been a huge amount of
time since there has been only one Scot in residence here. I think
we're both a bit lost.
Sleep well, Dear Girl, you've earned your rest."

"She was gorgeous, independent, smart, stubborn, demanding, naughty,
hilariously funny, adorable. She was a curmudgeon. She was sweet to the core.

"She was 12 years, 8 months and 17 days old. We remember so well
when Nanette McCarthy brought her to us from Canada; she was 8 weeks old.
We were thrilled and loved her from the first moment we saw her. She was the
very best dog anyone could wish for and we already miss her desperately."
Fran and Gary Sanden
"She was the last of the original Brice Bunch.
15yrs 7mos old They are all together again, Daddy Pippin,
Momma Poppy, Sister CeCe, Brother Wheatly and Lily."
"She loved everyone, but, she was always Greg's sweetie and he, hers.
As a puppy she loved to crawl up inside his shirt when he would lay on the
couch watching tv. The only times in her life that she growled was when she
was on his lap and any of the other dogs would try to push her off. He was
her's and her's alone. She was patient and kind, never bullied anyone. I
called her our "Wallflower" because she would hang back and watch rather than
get into any fray. She danced for her dinner, a treat, or to go in the car.
She loved a hidey hole, briar patches, anywhere she could squeeze into.
Earthdog probably would have been her true calling, but we just never got around to it....."
"Her last gesture in this world was to lift up her head and nuzzle in deeply in his
chest, with her last breath she thanked him for loving her enough to let her go.
They never live long enough....."

1-18-96 - 4-17-13
"1 day short of 17 1/4 years old.
Please don't cry for me, Danny would tell you.
He had a great life, came to me at 5 months old, untrained, wobbly back legs (thought they'd never work correctly),
leash broken (NOT), blowing coat everywhere, but the best top-line of any Corgi around. He was my second champion,
1st Corgi Ch.
He quickly became a mama's dog, stuck to me like glue, slept at whatever door I exited out of till
my return. Anytime I left home for more than a day, Jim had to give him a T-shirt with my scent before he would
settle down and sleep. He was a true Corgi, herded the Bouviers around the house, barked at any strangers or other
dogs on the street.
At home, Danny was always at my feet, sleeping in the bed back against my legs,loved his ears,
face and back rubbed. Got his AKC Championship, CGC title, not interested in herding or Obedience.
Loved all his brothers & sister, we make them think they are related, and being an ambassador
for his breed at the "Meet the Breed" events.
He was loved by all and will be missed every day,
more than I can express..."

"I've lost another special needs Scottie who I loved dearly...When you loose a special needs
Scottie that you loved so much, it just tears you apart. At least now I know he is healthy and running
around the Rainbow Bridge with my Charlie Cartboy. I've lost two special needs Scotties this year.
This really hurts."

"Sissy, my beautiful little rescue Scottie, crossed the rainbow bridge
last Saturday. She lived with us for almost 5 years and we didn't know her
exact age but it was estimated as eight years when we got her. That made her
about 13. She was the sweetest Scottie you could ever imagine; never once
growling or snipping.
Goodbye my little one. :( "

"Champion, Registered Therapy Dog, Canine Good Citizen, and all-around stand up gal :). Mother of 4 in 2003 by
CH Bardriaan's Choir Boy, who recently passed at 14 1/2."
"I had aspirations to get obedience titles on her but she did NOT SEE FIT to "down" in public until she was *9*.
I kid you not--she would do absolutely everything perfectly but look at me with disdain when I asked for that magic command--
which is how she saw it. At home? She would "down" on a dime and stay there for 30 min, 3 min, 12 min--it didn't matter, she
stayed. She was excellent at making me look like a fool, as all good scotties are apt to do."
"One of her favorite activities until a few years ago was tetherball with the rest of the gang, and "hose baths"
(i.e. SQUIRT ME IN THE FACE!!)."
"Her whole life, however, her favorite sport was OLYMPIC CHAMPIONSHIP EATING.
Shrimp with cocktail sauce. Lobster. Dill pickles (nearly every day). No peasant tastes for this girl.. :)."
"She lived every day with quality; although diagnosed with TCC bladder cancer at 12 1/2, and it inevitably
aged her more quickly, she was winding down at almost 14."
"She never stopped eating and her condition was good; she went with dignity
and never had a truly bad day in her life. It is my gift to her to not let
her suffer, we should all have that for ourselves!"
"Liah, I love you and miss you."
" Goodbye sweet girl, I will miss your gentle nature."

"My loving Cairn Terrier met many of you. He had a very rich,
well-travelled, and happy life after we got together, and he had many friends
and fans. Each loss is unique, I realize, and I will miss this boy, who was
my great defender and companion, every day."
RB August 8, 2013
"I’ve been telling her for a month now, I’d do anything to take the burden
of her pain from her. I got my chance today. She’s not hurting anymore. We shared
some beautiful moments on the travel here - I got to see her hunting in grassy meadows,
yelling at people, cyclists & motorcycles outside the car, sticking her head out the
window at the levee, obnoxious barking at other dogs at hotels. In between all of this,
when she rested, you could just tell it wasn’t a comfortable rest. When you looked in
her eyes, they looked dark. I wanted to, but didn’t hold her in my lap - it was painful
for her to be handled and the catheter was in her good front leg. So, I sat on the floor
with her on the couch - we were at face level. The whole time, Nikko & Jolie, played,
wrestled, growled, snipped at each other, bounced into my legs, the vet, ... they said
it was okay, if okay with me. Yes. I wanted “busy fun” to be Phoebe’s last sight;
I had my hands & face on her, she never shook or trembled, she just rested, then
slipped away from me. I would like to thank every single one of you, my friends out
there, who held my girl in your thoughts, held her as special, sent such loving thoughts
and words. I still hadn’t finished thanking everyone who did the same in late June upon
her diagnosis. Some of you all, my friends, have met and know Phoebe, some know her like
family, some have or have had, some of her “blood” family, and some of you have never met
Phoebe or me, and yet you have poured out so many well wishes and so much love. Thank you."

"I lost my beloved Big Man today.... "
Aug 2005 - Oct 7, 2013
"Our beloved little William Murdoch had to give up his battle today the cancer won ,his little body had had enough.
William Murdoch came to us 3YRS ago in Aug. He
bonded with the Golden One HMB you never saw one without the other ,they
loved laundry day they would follow me to the lower level and run laps in
the family room ,now DH had two heads into all his yard work and repairs WM
was coming into his own but what to call him we couldn't find a name that
suited him ."
"We were watching Murdoch Mysteries and the little boy looked at me with big
black liquid eyes( just like the star of the show has ). So the little Scot
became William Murdoch now I had a PC Hamish MacBeth(I found this show after
HMB was named ) and a Detective.William Murdoch,seemed right the artist who
did his caricature when she heard his name drew him as Detective William
Murdoch we treasure this as we never really had a decent picture of him only
one KD kindly photo shopped for us."
"WM was diagnosed in April ,he never looked back from his first Chemo we
thought he would prove them wrong the way Duke has with his TCC WM was a
happy little boy till last week ,he had his treatment but his body didn't
respond to it the nodes didn't shrink,his little body was taken over so we
had to let him go this was so hard on DH as William really was his Daddy's
dog ,he was a needy little boy so he followed me every where till Dad came
"WM deserved so much more in his life ,we loved him dearly."

"It is with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you that we had to help Miss Molly
over the Bridge today. Her heart was giving out and they advised that it was time. My vet is
very good that way because we would hold on for as long as WE could, and need them to tell us
when its time, and for the best. This was so hard as she was the "last" of the original
knuthouse gang, won oldest Scotty at Fala Day the last 2 years, and Bill's girl (like Ceilidh
was mine). She attended the first Gathering of the Clan from Great Scots Magazine, in Tennessee,
and that weekend we got to meet Ceilidh for the first time. Ginger used her for a demonstration
and Donna McDonald did her first groom that weeked. She was just 4 months old and the only puppy
there. Whenever we played the video of that weekend, she remembered all the "fawning" made over
her and she looked around for her "subjects". Life just sucks some times, so ya'll hold on tight
to your babies tonight.."

"Callie, queen of the couch...
I was privileged to have served Her Highness Callie for the last 3 months of her life.
She joined my clan on Labor Day having adopted her from St Louis Scottie rescue
(for whom I also foster/coordinate). She walked out of the car and right into a group of
8 scotties and said "I'm old and I'm not puttin' up with any crap!" . And that's the way
it has been ever since. Today she went to the Bridge with dignity.
I will see you again my love."

THE LAST BATTLE
If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes,
please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
