Arrival Story:
Captain and his brother were kept in small cages for the first 6 months of their lives for up to 10 hours a day. I finally talked the owner into finding homes for them. I took Captain and his brother Taz found a really good home. When we got him home we shortly found out he was a wild man, he got away from us and it took us over an hour to catch him. With alot of work and patience he became a very loving companion. He was a real sweetheart and is missed so much.

I remember bringing you home. You were so small and cuddly with your tiny paws and soft fur. You bounced around the room with eyes flashing and ears flopping. Once in a while, you'd let out a little yelp just to let me know this was your territory. Making a mess of the house and chewing on everything in sight became a passion, and when I scolded you, you just put your head down and looked up at me with those innocent eyes, as if to say, "I'm sorry, but I'll do it again as soon as you're not watching." As you got older, you protected me by looking out the window and barking at everyone who walked by. When I had a tough day at work, you would be waiting for me with your tail wagging just to say, "Welcome home. I missed you. "You never had a bad day, and I could always count on you to be there for me. When I sat down to read the paper and watch TV, you would lay at my feet, looking for attention. You never asked for anything more than for me to pat your head so you could go to sleep with your head over my leg. As you got older, you moved around more slowly. Then, one day, old age finally took its toll, and you couldn't stand on those wobbly legs anymore. I knelt down and patted you lying there, trying to make you young again. You just looked up at me as if to say you were old and tired and that after all these years of not asking for anything, you had to ask me for one last favor. With tears in my eyes, I drove you one last time to the vet. One last time, you were lying next to me. For some strange reason, you were able to stand up in the animal hospital, perhaps it was your sense of pride. As the vet came into the room, I took you in my arms & held you , I could feel your last heatbeat & your last breath as you fell asleep & I comforted you as you had done for me all of these years "Thank you for taking care of me. You will always be in my heart.

Today is my birthday
Celebrate my life with you
And remember the good times
Not the bad and
Do not be sad;
Look up towards the sun
And catch every ray of light
Upon your cheek.
For I am there with you.

Today is my birthday
Be happy for me
I lived a long life,
I had the pleasure of love
And the joy of my family.
Do not be sad
Look up towards the stars
And catch each twinkle
In your heart.
For I am there with you

Today is my birthday
Learn to live again without me,
Take my strength with you
For you are not alone.
Do not be sad
Feel the rain on your face
Feel all life's treasures and
Know that you are alive!
At each step of the way
I will help you
For I am with you always
Until we meet again.

Today is my birthday...

When I was a puppy My brother Taz and I (Captain) where bought from a pet shop. Our owners took us home but they didn’t play with us much we was allowed out of our cages about 5 hours a day. We were kept in crates in a basement 12-15 hours a day because our owners worked all the time. We could hear them come home at night and was all excited thinking they would come and let us out soon but it would be a few more hours before we would see them. The basement door would open and then our cage doors we were free to go outside and play, potty, & eat. But for only a couple hours then it was back to the cage in the basement. We could hear them walking around above us hoping the door would open again and we would be able to come upstairs with them but soon it would be quite and dark and sleep would overcome us. Every morning we got out of our cages for 30 mins to eat, and go outside to potty then our owners had to go to work so back in the cage we went. This went on for the first 6 months of out lives. Then one day a lady came to see us she talked to us in a very clam and sweet voice and told us she was going to take us away. Apparently she knew about us and had talked to our owners and they agreed to let her have us. Although she couldn’t keep me and my brother together she did find him a good forever home just across town and I got to go see him occasionally. Now let me tell you about my rescue……when Mom and dad came to get me from the dark basement I was kinda scared because that’s all I knew except getting to go out for short periods of time. They put a collar on me and then a leash, I didn’t like that one bit and I was walked out to their truck. They tried to get me to jump up into the truck but I didn’t know how to jump so dad had to pick me up and put me in. It was only a short drive to my new forever home but it was very scary. When we got there all I was hoping for was a bigger cage since I was growing and my other one was getting a bit cramped. Mom got out of the truck first I saw her walking to the back. She opened the door and I could think of was RUN. I jumped out the back and took off . It took mom and dad an hour to catch me and when they did I figured ok here we go back to the cage. I was wrong though they took me in the house and showed me where I would be sleeping, on a bed right next to theirs, then they showed me my food and water, wow all the water I wanted and then, your not going to believe this, a huge yard. They said it was all mine I even had toys, LOTS of toys. At first I was a little shy but mom got me over that. I loved both mom and dad but mom was my favorite I went everywhere she went and eventually I ended up right next to her on the bed. I took care of mom thru the years would comfort her when she cried, snuggled with her when it was cold, and made sure she was always safe when we went for walks in the woods. As I got older she did the same for me she covered me when I was cold. Comforted me when I was feeling bad, and always made sure I was safe. When I was 11 years old I was diagnosed with heart worms. I also had bad hips and was losing my sight.
Mom decided that she would not treat me but to keep me comfortable with meds. The vet told her the treatment could hurt and make my bone even worse then they already were. For the next 3 years mom and I were closer then ever just like when I was young and watched over her she was now watching over me.
At 14 I went to rainbow bridge and I have no more pain. I watch over my family everyday and play with all my Angel friends here at the bridge. Thank you Mom & Dad for taking me away from the dark, cold basement and letting me see the light!!!!!


Dogs Ten Commandments

1. My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years - any separation from you will be very painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me - it is crucial for my well being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment...You have your work, your friends, your entertainment...

5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand your voice when you're speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I'll NEVER forget it.

7. Before you hit me, remember that I have teeth that could easily crush the bones in your hands but I choose NOT to bite YOU.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I've been out in the sun too long or my heart may be getting old and weak.

9. Take care of me when I get old. You too will grow old.

10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch it" or "Let it happen in my absence." Everything is easier for ME if you are there. Remember that I love you.
