Arrival Story:
My husband found her in a lumber yard. Her eyes were still closed, so we raised her on a bottle. We were the first beings that she saw so she always thought she was human and thought all the other dog's were nuts for barking at here.

It was hard losing Tieka. I knew that she was close to 12 years old but it still hadn't sunk in that she was an old dog. She started to exhibit flu-like symptoms but the vet could find nothing wrong. She died in her sleep about two weeks later. After she died, it dawned on me that she was exhibiting the same symptoms my mom did just before she died of heart failure.

Tieka's Thoughts From Beyond

First Baby

I was my mom's first baby, and she loved me a lot. I always knew she did even though she wondered sometimes if I knew. When I passed on, she felt so bad that she wrote this tribute to me. Isn't it beautiful?

Dedicated to man's best friend

Tiny, blind, helpless,
She appeared in my life
A baby, a wee ball of fur.

Rescued, nourished, loved,
She lived and thrived.
A spirit, strong and determined.

Friend, companion, daughter,
Giving unswerving devotion.
An angel, loving unconditionally.

Guardian, spirit, angel,
No longer of this world.
A memory for life.

Animal, dog, pet,
The perfect love.
Love eternal.
