Sandy Warner-Bennett
1994 - December 1, 2008
June 19, 1999 - December 31, 2007
Sandy was absolutely the sweetest dog ever, even if her breath sometimes wasn't. She brought love and joy into our home from her very first day with us. She was known around our neighborhood from frequent walks which she
loved. We got to know many of our great neighbors because of their interest in learning about her. She loved to lie down nearby us and get her ears rubbed. Age and illness eventually took her from us, but her gentle spirit and many warm memories remain.
In her shy way,she gave love to everyone she met. When she got her courage up to approach someone, she always gave them a tiny kiss on the hand. Everyone who knew her
loved her. All the neighbors told me how much they liked her and that she would be missed. I think that says a lot. In a very doggie neighborhood, she stood out. She never had a
cross word for any of her fellow dogs. For a dog that would not chase a lure and never raced, she loved to chase cats, squirrels and rabbits outside. She never hurt any of them, though.

Epic Duncan
Three years ago Epic came into this inefficiently run household with the determination that, being the Alpha she was, she would use her skills to make it a much happier home. She began by teaching us that all trash cans must be kept behind locked doors, unless we wanted the contents unevenly distributed around the house. Leftover foods were to be put down the garbage disposal and not in trash cans. All eatables were to be stored in cabinets or spaces
at least six feet off the floor and all counters were to be kept clear of appealing items. This house contains the ghosts of pets past and they assembled to welcome her. She learned quickly the best place during a storm is under my computer desk, a lesson from Max. How to destroy the kitchen, when left alone, she learned from Sam, the onkey who resided here for nineteen years. Ladybug, the dalmatian gave instructions on being a proper watch hound. They assured her that with reasonable behavior, and of course, being adorable and cute, she would be able to settle in and get the management under control very quickly, and so she did. Never wanting her food bowl empty, she would come announce that she was going to eat her food and
wanted it filled before she was hungry again. The water bowl had to be cleaned regularly and water had to be fresh. She loved her walks and knew where to find her leash when needed. Epic loved wearing a coat when it was cold and her pearls when attending dress up events. She may not have been proficient with English, but her body language was a very effective mode of communication.

Epic, you remain permanently in our hearts and are fondly missed.
Duncan was an incredibly laid back and loving dog. He was patient with his older sister Sandy who insisted on being the alpha despite Duncan's much greater size and strength. He was just happy to share her house until she passed in 2008. He took his retirement seriously, with long naps on the back porch and an occasional break to chase squirrels or play with his toys. He insisted on walking every day and greeting each neightbor as a dear friend.

We nearly lost Duncan in 2012 when he developed a serious heart condition. Thankfully, he responded to treatment and we had two additional years to spend with him. We are grateful for every extra day we had with him.

Our house is heavy with the stillness of loss. Where there was once snoring from his afternoon naps, or satisfied sighs from a scratch behind his ears, there is now silence. Where there was once squeaking stuffies, or his jingling collar announcing walk time, there is now quiet. Now, the only sounds in our house are of our hearts breaking. We will always love and miss Duncan.

Chance Tessa

Chance came into our lives as a foster having been rescued from a cruelty/neglect situation. He was a loving, sweet boy and the family grew to love him more each day and we couldn’t give him up. Yes we failed fostering. He was always excited to see you, loved everyone in the neighborhood and
dog park. He taught us the simplicity of acceptance and love. He also taught me to not clutter my counters with food because even with a weak hind end, he was the best counter surfer ever. His favorite things were food, his human family, his step sister Bella, going out and he just loved coming home after an outing and chilling out. His biggest fears were the trash truck and thunderstorms. We were blessed to have him just short of 2 ½ years. He is missed in our home.
My little girl, I met you as you came off the transport truck and you were in my heart from that moment. You had so many friends and people who loved you. When we walked, people would stop us to have their “Tessa Fix”. You might have preferred to keep going, but you would patiently give them your sweet love and attention. You took good care of your cat brother, Tux and adored your people sister, Rachel. You palled around with the neighbor dogs, Sasha and Krenzel. They would have loved to be able to keep up with you when you ran. You loved the dog park for the people more than the dogs, unless there was a small brown dog to chase. Sweet, gentle, loving and so much fun. Gone too soon.
