In Memory


Bowen (L) and his Mom Vixen (R)



“It was one of the hardest days, as we said our Good-Byes to sweet Bowen, laying in the morning sun, taking his last breaths here at home where he took his first breaths, 10 days shy of his 11th birthday. 

Bowen had a stomach tumor, discovered January 3rd, and he had a wonderful three months, defying the odds, but in the last few days it was clear that it was time for him to leave us. 

As you gained your wings today, sweet boy, enjoy chasing George, catching up and playing with your dad, Tundra, and your girlfriend, Sider. We already miss you so very, very much – your woo-woo’s, your snorking on the couch, your paw-hug when getting belly rubs, and your sweet face.

I hope you know how much you were loved, as we know how much you loved us. Run free, be young and strong again, and smile your sweet smile until we see you again.”


SIDER - Can Ch Moonlighters Stan Beside Her – July 15, 2006 - July 21, 2018.



Today we had to say a tearful good-bye to our Sider. She was a truly wonderful girl who taught me so much - she was a tough cookie who loved the 2-legged boys with fierce devotion, worked hard in harness at all positions, and spoiled her grand-kids.


She will be dearly missed  - I will strain to hear that special voice of hers barking for her food and to come in for her daily snuggles.


You had to leave so quickly sweet girl but I'm glad we had a chance to say our good-byes here in the sunshine at home. We love you and will see you again at the Bridge. You are a good girl! Say Hi! To Tundra for us💔
