Arrival Story: First experience with the breed was when I met "Tyler" on side of Alaskan Highway in Fort Nelson, BC. Didn't know what he was until vet in White Horse enlightened me. We then spent 2 months together just outside of Mayo, Yukon. Could not return to U.S. with Tyler (no documentation & several month quarantine). I took about a week to find him a great home in BC and returned knowing I needed a lifetime Jack Russell. I met Foxie & her brother on September 15, 1987 and promptly took her into my life (to this day wishing I had taken her brother also). . .
Bio: Foxie was born June 24th 1987. It was just Foxie and daddy until mid-January 1988 when mommy appeared in our lives.
Mommy wasn't "dog-literate" but Foxie won her over and the three lived happily ever after . . . Until that bright, sunny, cold January day when Foxie told us she loved us and it was time to be on her way . . .
All the secrets of my life were held within the soul of Foxie.
So many times and life events she witnessed .... as they all ended with her death, never to be spoken of again ... and yet they happened.... just as she remembered them...and brought the life experiences all to God, as her life ended within my loving arms, and I remember them all also until I too am returned to the loving arms of God. For your life and loving devotion ... I remain forever thankful!
With thoughts in mind of days gone by,
Too fast it seems each moment flies.
From puppyhood to old age, each day you’d share
Became a gift from God in answer to my prayer.
For each lesson you taught on patience and freedoms,
Eternal thanks for guiding me from life’s demons.
Though embraced no longer in my arms since your depart,
For you each day, a space and time I hold within my heart . . .
