Arrival Story:
Timmy passed away on July 24, 2006 at the age of 12 1/2 years. He was a loyal and trusting friend and companion. Timmy was only with us a few years, but in a very short time, found a forever place in our hearts and memories. Our home feels so empty without him and the loss is unbearable. Timmy was adopted from the Sacramento SPCA in 2002. He had been a stray for quite awhile before being taken to the shelter. He was very thin when we adopted him and it was always a challenge to help him gain weight and keep weight on. He was so accustomed to being a stray that he would often ration his food. Timmy was terrified of thunderstorms and after a particularly severe one in late 2004, he no longer wanted to go upstairs, no longer wanted to sleep in our room, didn't trust us to keep him safe and was so anxious and worried much of the time. We tried a number of things, everything worked for awhile, but nothing solved the problem. Over the last couple of months, Timmy became more confused, and his health gradually deteriorated. He passed away early today, July 24th. He is finally at peace with no more thunder to frighten him and endless grasses to roll in. Our "Timmy Timmy Cocoa Puff's spirit will live on in our hearts forever. We sure loved that goofy old boy!!!!

Bio:
Timmy may be a senior dog but you would never guess it. He greets everyone with a furious tail wag and big grin. He can often be found rolling around on the grass and howling with glee. He loves all people and is just happy to be around them.
