Skipper
1991 - 01/29/04
Mast Cell Tumor

Skipper was born in 1991 (not sure of date as we adopted him from a shelter). We adopted him 2/22/97 and he left us on 1/29/04. I found the original lump on his side just in front of the right rear leg in March, 1997 but the vet felt it was nothing. It grew some and was removed in October, 1997. When they went to remove it they found a string which led to another tumor by his penis which was internal and could not be felt and seen. They were a grade 2 and 3 with no clean margins.

Lymphoma (diagnosed 12/01)

I miss you very much. You live in my heart and I feel you in every beat. It's been some time since I've seen you, but I sure feel you every day. Your presence is strong. I love you, Duncan, with all my heart and soul.

Bruno
June 28, 1993 - February 16, 2004
Adenocarcinoma of Lungs

Somewhere God has received a new angel into his kingdom. His name is Bruno and he was our loving companion for over ten and a half years. From the day his mother, Samantha gave birth to him in our home along with his sisters, Towanda and Edie, he taught us about unconditional love. He had such a sweet and gentle nature and a special knack for knowing how to win you over with his expressive and understanding eyes.

In December of 2003 he was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in his chest and lungs which was inoperable. Our only viable option was to keep him comfortable until treatments would no longer help. Last week he became much weaker and short of breath. The feeling of helplessness was almost unbearable in those last days. All I could do was try to comfort him, try to find foods that he could eat when he had no appetite and to sleep with him on the floor so he would know I was close. There seemed to be little more we could do as his quality of life deteriorated. We had to make the decision to return him to Godís care. He passed away peacefully last Monday, February 16, 2004, as we comforted him at the animal hospital. Through the blur of tears he looked so peaceful in his rest.

We love him very much and continue to grieve his loss, just as his sisters are doing in their own way. They still look for him to come home. I know he is in a better place, in Godís care where we will see him again someday. We will always cherish the joy he brought into our lives. Do you suppose that if there really is a Pearly Gate to heaven, that there is a doggy door in it? I think there must be! Iím sure heís standing there waiting.

ďWhat we once have enjoyed, we can never lose.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.Ē
Helen Keller

"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men."
St. Francis of Assisi

We miss you!

Craig, Don, Edie and Towanda

Sammy
02/27/1992 - 03/11/2004
Liver Cancer

Sammy was born February 27, 1992. He lived a happy and spoiled life. March 11, 2004 he went to be with God. He was diagnosed with liver cancer the same day he died. He was in pain only a short time when the doctor recommended that we say goodbye. We loved Sammy very much, he was our baby. We will miss him every day. Nothing can ever replace him in our hearts.

In loving memory,
Keyton & Mary Guthery






Winston
Liver Cancer
Adopted June 25, 1997 - March 31, 2004

We don't know when Winston was born, but he adopted us on June 25, 1997. I fell in love the first time I saw him, and knew he was meant to be our dog. He didn't have a good start in life, but he had a happy life with us. He was a wonderfully sweet dog, and he will be sorely missed. Sam was his best friend, she feels lost now without him. Minor surgery detected elevated liver enzymes on March 8, 2004. He was feeling and acting fine at that point. Denosyl and special food caused the enzymes to drop slightly over the next couple of weeks. March 27, he became sick, and an x-ray showed a mass by his liver. An ultrasound on March 29 confirmed the diagnosis, end stage liver cancer. We only had another two days with him. We ended Winston's suffering at about 8:20am on March 31, 2004. My pain is still fresh, and though we have 4 other pets, the house seems empty. Winston, I hope you know how much you are loved and how much you are missed.
