Bailey was a rescue when we found him. No one came to get him from the humane society so we decided to take him home. He lived with us for 12 years so we assume he was around 14 or 15 when he passed away. He had a wonderful life with us, and he was my Nanny’s baby boy. In the pictures I sent, he is the wired hair dachshund. Beside him is Daisy, who I know misses him like crazy, with no other dog to snuggle with. Bailey will be forever missed by everyone in the family, but we know that he is no longer suffering <3 – Emma W.
A dog is many things. Many of us see our dogs as our best friends, family members or even as our children.
For me, my dog Sukie was all of the above. When Sukie came into my life in August 2009, she was 3 months old. She was a beautiful red miniature dachshund. She was my first dachshund and my daughter who was 3 at the time, instantly took to her. Sukie was my daughter’s shadow. Everywhere she went, Sukie followed. The bond was beautiful.
In June 2013, I suffered a nervous breakdown. I had never been through any mental health issues before and the panic attacks scared me. During this time, Sukie found her way towards me. She followed me around and would gaze into my eyes. When I had break downs, she would lick my tears away, when I had a panic attack, she sat next to me and never left my side. And when I wouldn’t get out of bed for days, she laid next to me like she was holding me.
The unconditional love she gave me was more than I could ever fathom. The truth is my dog got me through the darkest period of my life and I truly believe I would not be here today if it hadn’t been for Sukie. Our bond was like no other.
Sukie only lived in this world for 6 years but she left me and my family such wonderful memories and more importantly she saved me life.
Thank you Sukie. Thank you for your love, loyalty and friendship. You have my heart forever ❤ – Monica M.
On December 8th, 2016 we lost our little ray of sunshine. She loved nothing more than to lay in one of the warm laps of her humans, or go for a ride in the car. We can never look at pizza crust the same way and we will miss our little bedwarmer burrowed in the blankets. We know that she will forever have a big piece of our hearts. Run free in doggy heaven until we meet again, Sunny girl. – Jamie H
