In loving memory of Rico, my first dog, that was about 18 years old, when he crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  He was the sweetest, most loving dog, I could have ever asked for.  We will always miss you!  Rest in peace Don Rico!



Doni was an angel, always a happy smiling dog.  She was 12 years old, when she went to Heaven.  We are so glad we had you in our family!  We will never forget you Teddy Bear!



Nali was 14 years old, when he went to see his siblings in Heaven.  He was the most loving big guy.  We miss you every day Baerchen!   



Strudelchen passed away, when she was 12 years old.  She was greeted by all her siblings and friends, already waiting in Heaven, when she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge!  She was the sweetest, most politest, prettiest, and smartest dog, we have ever met! I owe everything to her, she made me the trainer I am today, teaching me everything I needed to know about dogs. She helped so many troubled dogs to stay in their homes, and trained working dogs with me. She taught her sister Scarlett well, who stepped in her paw steps, when she retired a few years ago from being an Instructor Service Dog, and an Assistant for Rehabilitating Dogs. Strudel was my partner, my life, my everything, and I am blessed and thankful we had her almost all her life.  We will never forget you! You are always with us in our hearts! We love you forever, Strudel, until we see us again one day.......❤❤❤   



Inspector Columbo, aka Bubi, was 13.5 years old, when he fell asleep in our arms, and went over the Rainbow Bridge to see all his siblings in Heaven.  Investigating, as well as relaxing on fluffy pillows were his favorite things to do.  He was the sweetest social butterfly, and funny goofball, loved by everyone who met him!  You will be missed every day, Columbo!  RIP sweet Bubi!



Comet Muffin, our little old man passed away suddenly being 17.5 years old. We got him when he was 11.5 years old, from a no- kill shelter, where he was a resident for many years.  While he went through behavior rehabilitation with me, I fell in love with this sweet old guy, and we adopted him into our pack.  He was a very happy camper being with us, and we are very sorry, we have not met him earlier in his life!  Thank you sweet boy Comet for 6 beautiful years!  I learned so much from you!  We will always keep you in our hearts!  Run free with your siblings in Heaven!
