Bio

Heaven is the place where all the dogs you have ever loved run to greet you.
==============================
I SALUTE THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE DAILY WITH LOSS OF FUNCTION OF AN EXTREMITY OR SENSORY INPUT. MOST OF US HAVE NO IDEA HOW DIFFICULT THAT MAKES ORDINARY TASKS LIKE TAKING A BATH OR SHOWER, GETTING DRESSED, PUTTING ON SOCKS AND SHOES, SHOPPING, COOKING, DOING LAUNDRY, DRIVING A CAR, AND THE LIST GOES ON.
==============================
THANK YOU to all contributors who take the time to send me edits and post photos and flowers to the memorials I add. I especially appreciate edits that correct my mistakes!

I now follow Find a Grave guidelines for transferring memorials. Too many times I have transferred memorials to others outside the guidelines after assurances they had information to add to the bios, then they never did so much as add a virtual flower. I am more than happy to add bio information suggested by the memorialized person's other family members and friends.
==============================
Some people have asked if the Great Dane in my profile photo is my dog. No, he is not one of my "babies." I just think the photo is hilarious.

My husband and I have adopted rescued pets for over 40 years. Our children; a grandson; and our brothers, sisters, and nieces do the same. Some of us rescue only dogs, some only cats, and some rescue both cats and dogs.

Mixed-breed dogs are my favorite because their looks are as unique as their personalities; however, my husband and I take whatever God sends our way. Our babies are much loved, and we give them excellent care. I could never ask for better friends than the dogs that have graced my life. I don't know about anybody else, but God gave ME two hands so I can rub two dogs at once.

These are some of my favorite sayings:

"Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen."
--Orhan Pamuk--

"Dogs are my favorite people."
--Richard Dean Anderson--

"Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog."
--Sydney Jeanne Seward--

This is my favorite poem:

"It came to me
that every time
I lose a dog
they take a piece
of my heart with them,
and every new dog
gifts me with a piece
of their heart.
If I live long enough
all the components
of my heart
will be dog, and
I will become
as generous and
loving as they are."
