Arrival Story:
Went to the Huntsville, AL Humane Society and didn't want such a big dog. Had nightmares and went back 10 days later and she was still there. The workers were so happy to see someone adopt her for she was so kind and friendly. The person right behind me in line wanted her. I'm so grateful she became mine. She was so smart and she was about 7 months old.

Bio:
She was loyal, affectionate and loved me to death. Reilly and her were friends for 14 years. They used to get in such trouble together. Chelsie would pull the wood fence boards and Reilly would dig....then their escape together. I had to appear in court for their mischief. They were inseparable. When I moved to AZ for 6 mths, she gained lots of weight and was in depression because I was not around. I had to put her down when she was 16 due to Canine Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome (Doggy Alzheimer's). It broke by heart for I loved her so much. She lived with me in AL, OK, GA, CA, and NC. She died on my birthday 27 July 2004.

I remember the day I went to the Huntsville Humane Society and decided that I wanted a smaller dog. I had nightmares for days and when I went back, sure enough, you were still there. My heart sprung with excitement. It was instant joy and you were so happy. Although you were 9 months old, you still had the puppy spring in your feet. You were the most gentle soul and stay with me like velcro. I worked with the blind and I understood why they used Labs for a therapy dog. You were so smart and looked up to me for everything. I can imagine stroking your fur as I write this entry.

Unfortunately, time was getting away from you. I found you sometimes wandering around...looking one way, than another. I tried medicines for senility to see if that would help. One day, I got brave enough to decide it is time to say goodbye...it was my birthday. You were 16 yrs old and been with me living in AL, OK, GA, CA, and NC. Boy, did we travel.

I once read that it is best to have the other dog in the room with the dog you are planning on putting down...so they don't grieve and know what happened to the other dog. I did this but could not let myself be present. After all was done, I couldn't stop crying....I was so emotionally distraught. Life is not fair. Saying goodbye was the most devastating event I have ever experienced. I just pray in life that I never have to go through it again. I miss you so much Chelsie and please forgive me if I was too early in making my decision. I await to see you and Reilly again.

In love,

"Sorrow fills a barren space; you close your eyes and see my face and think of times I made you laugh, the love we shared, the bond we had, the special way I needed you-the friendship shared by just we two. The day's too quiet, the world seems older, the wind blows now a little colder. You gaze into the empty air and look for me, but I'm not there-I'm in heaven and I watch you, and I see the world around you too. I see little souls wearing fur, souls who bark and souls who purr born unwanted and unloved- I see all this and more above- I watch them suffer, I see them cry, I see them lost, I watch them die. I see unwanted thousands born- and when they die, nobody mourns. These little souls wearing fur (Some who bark and some who purr) are castaways who- unlike me- will never know love or security. A few short months they starve and roam. Or caged in shelters- nobody takes home. They're special too (furballs of pleasure), filled with love and each one, a treasure. My pain and suffering came to an end, so don't cry for me, my person, my friend. But think of the living- those souls with fur (some who bark and some who purr)- And though our bond can't be broken apart, make room for another in your home and your heart. "
