Arrival Story:
We bought Houston to keep Tex company. We felt so guilty when we had to leave for work. It was a perfect match! They never,ever fought. They became true "brothers" without the sibling rivalry.

Houston had to be put to sleep May 27, 2001. He fell down the stairs and broke his back & was paralyzed. (Seven carpeted stairs) He was 11 at the time and we would have spent thousands of dollars for surgery to ease his pain, but he couldn't be "fixed". If love could fix him, he'd live forever! Not a day goes by that we don't think of him. But we know he & Tex are causing a riot up there & will see them one day when it's our turn. Houston was one of our sweetest doxies we ever had. He was so full of love for everyone who met him. Had to sneak in as many kisses as he could. Aahh, he truly broke our heart the day we had to let him go. Never knew it could happen to a person but it did.

Forums Motto:
Angel hugs for all dogsters who need it!

The Last Forum I Posted In:
Vinny has gone to the Bridge

Most joyous occasion:
The day i was brought home. I was never so happy until i got to meet my "brother Tex" altough he was not tooo happy with me! He wouldn't look at me for 3 days then i stole his heart and he couldn't resist me anymore! We were the best of buddies after that 3rd day until the end.

Most saddest occasion:
The day i had to leave my home. My Mommy & Daddy were crushed about my accident. They did the right thing though because i would not have wanted to live the rest of my life out that way! I am happy up here in "heaven" and can walk & run again! Tex & I are causing a ruckus up here! We are soo free but we do miss our mommy & daddy, so we go down & look over them from time to time! Boy they have some cute girls down there, we wish we could be with them!

I'm a Movie Star!:
I won the rights to be in the end credits of the movie "Firehouse Dog"! My picture is in it 2 times! I always knew that I would make mom & dad proud of me in the "after-life", what a tribute to them!

Houston you were one of the sweetest & lovablest dogs we ever had. You had to give everyone kisses, you liked to sneak them when they weren't looking! We were so glad that you loved your brother(not real brother, but that's what you guys became) You started slowing down in your 10th year but you never let us know that you were in pain. On May 27th, 2001, our lives changed forever. It was "Memorial Day", how fitting & ironic. We had just gotten home from seeing the movie " Pearl Harbor". You were soo excited to see us back home even though it had only been 3 hours since we had left you. It must have been your excitement that caused you to fall down the stairs. When you fell & broke your back becoming paralyzed the vets asked us how long you had had back problems. They said that you had so many calcified disks in your back that it was amazing you could walk. We were clueless because you NEVER showed it. You were so strong in hiding your pain. Dad & I would have paid thousands of dollars to fix you but you couldn't be fixed. We truly know not what a broken heart feels like, the day we had to let you go, we thought we were going to go with you. It was too sudden for us to handle. We can never forgive ourselves for not being there with you when they took your life. We just were not strong enough to do this, it broke our heart & we couldn't see them taking your vibrant life before our eyes. If we had to do it over again, Pumkin, we would be there.' Thank you for touching our lives like you did. I miss you waiting in the garden for me to pull up the carrots & wash them off so we could eat them together. I have NEVER grown carrots again. We will never, ever forget you. Love Mom & Dad. PS- we know it was you that stoled Daddy's steak from his plate!!!!
