Triumph whose legs may have been missing but whose spirit never faltered earned her silver harness early yesterday morning. Her 10 year journey of inspiration to people worldwide is her legacy. Her accomplishments were many from her work as a therapy dog in hospitals, nursing homes, her work with children in schools in Project Read programs and inspirational talks "she" gave to say nothing of being the forerunner in the world of permanently implanted prosthetics leading the way of hope for human amputees. Her beautiful blue eyes looked into many souls. She was a healer, at times a clown. She was featured on Animal Planet, was written up in books, newspapers, articles, received the Heroic Dog of the Year from the Humane Society along with many other awards. The biggest thing she gave was love to everyone she met. She showed how no matter what your challenge you can overcome it. She will be so missed but we know she is running in the meadow at the Rainbow Bridge her mission here complete. Thank you my girl for all you did and most of all thank you for letting me be the blessed on at the end of your leash and all the lessons you taught me.

wow, mom got word last night that I have been choosen with a couple other dogs from over 400 that were interviewed all over the states to appear on a program on Nov. 14 at 3pm our local time. here's the link you can also look up from there what time it might be on a station near you. www.talesforthepetloversheart.com/AboutShow.aspx

I am so excited. Its Tales for the Petlover's Heart and bound to be good. We were also happy to learn that they donated $14,500 to one of our local shelters. We did our part by voting and sending out lots of emails so everybody we could reach could vote for them. They really desearved it. Mom's daughter adopted a dog from them....guess that makes him some kind of cousin....his name is Bugsy and he is a riot.

Be sure to tune in....hugs Triumph

My "sister" Patches the Aussie left us today and is waiting for us at the rainbow bridge. Her death was not totally unexpected because of her recent illness but we are never prepared for the loss of a loved one. When we pick up that cute little puppy or rescued dog and take them home it never enters our mind that we will outlive them. All we care about is giving back to them the love and light that they bring into our lives.

This morning however, Patches let us know that it was time to leave for now. It was even harder without Dee being able to be here. She was, however here in spirit, energy and love. The staff at VetMed was so gentle with her. We all surrounded her with love and mom held her in her arms until she passed into the arms of God.

I will never hear a squeaky toy without thinking of her because she always took them out of every toy. She never really liked small dogs coming into our home yet she allowed little Duncan in and even allowed him to velcro himself to her mom....she was a bit of a bully taking a toy away from one of us and playing keep away until finally giving it up....and of course had to be on the bed if there was a thunderstorm which she knew was coming before the weatherman. Patches spent so much time around us huskies she even began to "sing" like us.

There are no more storms for our beloved Patches. She is remembered with humor and love.

Godspeed my friend.....We really did love you and were blessed with your being a part of our lives.....Moe, Triumph, Whisper and Duncan and Taziddy
