Arrival Story:
Rhett was my foster dog from a local rescue. It was the hardest thing I did letting him be adopted out but I knew he would do well with a family with kids and where he was the only dog. However, the family I entrusted him to were very mean and abused Rhett. They returned him when he pooped on their couch ( I hope it stained!). Rhett was returned to rescue a broken down dog. In fact he became very ill and nearly died within the month he was returned. The day he was returned, I made the decision that he was never leaving my side again. It has been a long struggle, he has behavior and trust issues. But he is learning to trust again and love again. He is not the Rhett I adopted out, but he is improving everyday. Time and love will do the trick I'm sure about it. Sure enough time helped. Rhett is a spoiled cocker spaniel who thinks he belongs on my lap at all times. He is the only dog who gets to sleep on the bed. He is very spoiled now and living the life all dogs should live, he is loved and protected!

Rhett passed away on April 29, 2010. A tumor on his spleen burst and he died in my arms. I will miss him forever.

It has been nearly three years and I still miss you as much today as I did then. Just know that I love and miss you my baby boy.


It has only been one year

Today is one year from the day you left this earth for heaven. It seems like just yesterday. You are in my thoughts everyday and I still cry everyday. But I'm learning to cry happy tears as I remember you climbing on the dinning room table to pee on the Christmas tree centerpiece. Or how you would jump the baby gate everyday to be in the living room but that you never figured out that you could jump back over the babygate to use the doggie door. I still cannot pass by a ferret or guinea pig without thinking about how happy you would have been to greet them. You were such a special dog and I'm thankful for every day you were in my life. I thank you for the love and trust that you placed in me and I hope that you do not feel that I let you down.

Rest in peace, my sweet Rhett.
