His Mom and Dad!

Having his ears cleaned, and please, don't touch the tail!!!

Favorite Toy:
Any stick he can find on the ground

Favorite Food:
Any stick he can find on the ground, the corn and peas put out for the squirrels and deer, and milkbones! For his regular meals, he gets Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul.

Favorite Walk:
Running in the woods behind the house

Best Tricks:
He gives hugs on command, high fives, and if you "shoot" him with your fingers and say "BANG" he rolls over "dead."

Arrival Story:
I walked into the Bossier City Animal shelter and saw this adorable, yet pitiful 2.5 pound puppy and fell in love with him. I had to wait two days to take him home because he had just been found under a house - his mom had abandoned the litter and he was the only survivor. I was told he was a Terrier Mix and wouldn't be over 15 pounds full grown. Yes, he is a terrier mix, but has German Shepherd and Lab in him as well! He was 15 pounds by the time he was three months old!

He came to me at a difficult time in my life. He was sick for the first month, but nursing him back to health healed my broken heart. That is why he is truly my angel boy! He is the love of my life.

My World - by Gonzo

Three Years Ago Yesterday...

I lost my soulmate. My best friend. My rock.

Gonzo, I know you don't want me crying over you - that's why I concentrated on making your little brother Boudreaux the happiest dog he can be during the time he has left. I miss you terribly but decided that it would honor you more by giving Bou the best of me instead of wallowing in the grief that still haunts me.

I can't believe you've been gone for three years. Sometimes with Boudreaux, it's like you're still here with me. I know you are - you taught him to take care of me for you. He has become my soulmate, my best friend, my rock. Thank you for teaching him and being with him to take care of me. I know you've had your paw in all of this.

Now, I'm facing Boudreaux's cancer and I feel like not only am I losing him, but I'm losing you all over again. I'm not sure my heart can bear that. You and Bou were so close. Such loving brothers - you were such a great mentor.

I love you, my Angel and I'll always hold you in my heart.


Our Dear Friend Rosie is Missing! Please Help!

Rosie escaped the morning of 11-5-09 from her pet sitter's fenced backyard. She actually managed to unlatch the gate and presumably is headed for home. Her owner is one of my best friends and was scheduled to go out of town today hence the need for a pet sitter.

Rosie is an adult, female, German Shepherd with a very black colored face. AC saw her at North Star and Northwest Blvd. at 10:00 AM this morning but couldn't catch her. If you find her or think you've seen her please call 614-297-8380 or 614-787-1405. She is normally a friendly dog but was very scared when she was last sighted and took off running. Please let us know if you see her.

Rosie was wearing a pink gingham collar, she has all her tags on.

Please help me spread the word to anyone you know who lives in the Columbus area. Share this message on Facebook and retweet on Twitter.

We are worried sick for Rosie's safety.

Thank you for any help!

Please see FindRosie.com for more info!


Two years ago today...

My sweet Gonzo man...two years ago today it was as if someone had ripped my heart right out of my chest. I lost my best friend, my rock. We had been through so much together. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and not many go by that I don't shed a tear. I know you don't want me to be sad, but I miss you so very much. You did such a great job teaching Boudy how to take care of me and you would be so proud of him. I miss you, Gonzo and I will love you forever. Until we meet again, my Angel Boy.

I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake, with which I’ll never part.
God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart.
