This page is dedicated to the sweet babies that we've loved and lost. Any member of the group should be able to add their loved pups to this page. Include a picture (If you need help with the picture, let me know) and a short description of your baby if you wish. We will share the sorrow of the loss with each other and help each other through the rough times as we each understand the pain that comes with losing a 4 legged member of the family. They bring us so much joy in their lifetime, so much love and understanding....they will all be remembered dearly.

Our Cricky--We only had you a few short months, but we feel your loss deeply. We love you dearly and miss you so very much. Your grumbling when I kissed you on the head, your tip-tap trotting across the kitchen floor, your snoring in your sleep, and those curious eyes, watching everything we did....not wanting to miss out on anything! You are free from pain, your heart is strong and you are young again my little Sweet-sweet. We love you!

Gert landed in my care after wandering up to a farmhouse in south-central Iowa three years ago, she was about 16. It was believed she was dumped by her owners who no longer wanted her. Fortunately, the nice couple who rented the farmhouse took her in and contacted Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue.
Gert had horrible teeth and lost half of them during two dental procedures. She was also diagnosed with a heart murmur and an enlarged heart. I was hoping she would last six months but in Gert style, she surprised everyone and made it just shy of three years. Gert was a fashionista who would happily sport any sweater I put on her to keep her warm. She was not shy about telling anyone or any of the other doxies who was boss. She had a trademark grunt that was typically accompanied by a curled up lip proudly displaying her few remaining teeth.
Gert is responsible for my love of fostering the 'senior seniors' and I will always be grateful to her for that. I miss her terribly but know she is now running free at the bridge bossing around all the other doxies up there.
Thanks for letting me share a little about Gert and why she was so special to me.

Sweet little Schatzie came into rescue with her sister Pippen. Both tiny 6 lb girls (soaking wet!) were rescued by Deb Yeager when their elderly owner had to go into a nursing home. Their owner had loved them, but hadn't been well enough to properly care for them for some time...
Jen and Ben opened their home and hearts to this sweet little lady. Initially frightened, this tiny little girl, with no tail, slowly started coming out of her shell. She grew slowly, learning each day to trust a little more, until she blossomed into a confident little lady that ran the house. Even the Great Dane Louise knew to listen to Schatzie! Unfortunately, her new life was only meant to be a short one, breaking our hearts, but sweet Schatzie will always remember the love and happiness she experienced in her forever home with Jen, Ben and Elliot. She finally knew what it was to be loved, and to be able to trust. She knew what it was to have good food in her tummy everyday, a warm bed every night, and lots of love that made the sadness and fear from the past disappear.
Sweet little Schatzie is greatly missed....breaking many a heart along the way.
