Arrival Story:
We rescued Sully from a wonderful organization in Northern Virginia. He saved us as much as we saved him! He came to his forever home on March 26, 2007. Socks had been coming to our home to visit Buddy, who went to the Bridge October 1, 2005. She kept coming whenever she could escape from the home where she was so neglected. Her warden died on August 19, 2008 and then Socks came to us to stay in her forever home where we loved her so dearly until she made her journey to the Rainbow Bridge on November 12, 2012...our precious Golden girl.

Socks was a late neighbor's dog. She's been breaking away and coming to our house for the past dozen years, where we cared for her as one of our own and gave her all the love and care she didn't get at home. Her owner passed away on August 19, 2008 and the family decided the best place for Socks to spend her golden years was with us, since she was already so much a part of our family and we loved her dearly. We couldn't be happier to be able to give her a life full of comfort and love for as long as she lives. She's the gentlest, sweetest dog and was our beloved, once in a lifetime dog "Buddy's" best friend. Buddy went to the Raiinbow Bridge on October 1, 2005, but Socks continued to come to us. Having her here with us now is a loving connection to our angel, Buddy, who we will love with all our hearts forever. She's our special girl now! We were blessed to have Socks with us for 4 years and 3 months until old age overtook her and we sent her on her journey to the Rainbow Bridge on November 12, 2012. We miss her terribly, but know she is now free of pain and with our precious Angel Buddy and all the other angels who went before her. Fly free, sweet took a part of our hearts with you, but you'll remain our beloved golden girl forever. Sully has grieved terribly for you, his sweet companion.

Sadly, yesterday, March 21, 2013 our dear pal Wesley joined sweet Sunny and all our other angels at the Rainbow Bridge. Wesley, lost his long battle against degenerative neuro muscular disease. We send our deepest sympathy, love and comfort to Wesley's family who gave him the most wonderful life and will miss him terribly. Fly free and young again, sweet boy, until we all meet again at the end of the beautiful Rainbow Bridge.
