Katie Treadway

Rainbow Bridge July 7, 2017

Today I had to make the worst decision to put my baby girl to sleep. For the past 13 years she has been the best companion. We have been through a lot of challenges, but she was always there for me. My heart is broken, and being at home without her is painful. I will miss you Katie and will always love you.

Our hearts go out to Kerry for the loss of his special girl.

Wesley Finelt

February 9, 2004 - July 3, 2017

Wesley passed away today due to complications from Degenerative Myelopathy. He was 13 years old and he lived with Margaret and me from June 9, 2007 until his death. Wesley was a Caring Critters Therapy dog for almost 8 years and he visited patients at Ben Taub Hospital, LBJ Hospital, and the Hampton Tanglewood Nursing Home. He literally met thousands of patients during his career and he always loved his job. He especially loved the children.

During his life, Wesley went on many vacations and traveled to eight different states ranging from the home of Elvis and Rock n Roll (Memphis, TN) to the the deep south of Savannah, GA. Being a Dalmatian, Wesley loved to walk. In his life with us, we estimate that Wesley walked over 10,000 miles.

Wesley was more than a dog, he was our son. He was a therapy dog until the end making his last visit on June 17, 2017. May his memory comfort those he touched.

Our hearts go out to Dan and Margaret for the loss of this very special boy.

Charlie Goldstein

July 25, 1951 - June 21, 2017

Aside from the love for his wife, work, and family, Charlie loved animals. Their ranch is home to many adopted animals, including Tinker, the Dachshund, and his donkeys, Guido and Luigi. He never met a dog he didn't like. His kind heart and never-ending wit will forever be missed.

DREAM extends our deepest sympathy to Carolyn and Trisha for the loss of their husband and stepfather.

Sasha Lee Abedelfatah

Rainbow Bridge June 10, 2017

Rest in peace, sweet Sasha and Oreo. May you find each other in heaven.

Our hearts go out to Michelle and Ryan for the loss of their precious girl, Sasha.

Sadie Gorman

July 4, 2002 - April 26, 2017

Sadie Gorman, born July 4, 2002, passed away April 26, 2017. Sadie came to live with Christmas and me in 2007. She had been a puppy mill mom for five years and was set free to rescue. I thought Christmas needed a buddy to play with while I was gone (they just needed to sleep while I was gone). They became sisters and fought just like they had been together from day one. Christmas was arrogant and Sadie was passive at all times. After we lost Christmas two years ago, Sadie began to talk! And talk she did very well. It was just I who did not understand dog. She insisted until she got what she wanted. About a month ago she was diagnosed with cancer of the bowel with little chance of survival. Ten days ago she started a rapid decline and today I had to let her go to the Rainbow Bridge. It was hard, but now I know she is running free and the tears fill my eyes. I love you Sadie. Please tell Christmas and Roxi I love them too. - Mom

DREAM extends our deepest sympathy to Sharon for the loss of her sweet girl, Sadie.

KK Kiani (Carol Brady)

Rescued 5/25/11 - Rainbow Bridge 4/24/17

KK was rescued in 2011 by Dachshund Rescue of Houston as part of an SPCA cruely seizure. She became a Forever Foster due to multiple health problems, including severe dry eye and a heart murmur. Congestive heart failure eventually got the best of her on Monday. KK's wonderful fosters stayed with her through all her issues and did everything they could for her. We know she will be missed.

DREAM extends our deepest sympathy to the Kianis for the loss of their special girl.

Diesel Adcock
Rescued 2/6/09, Rainbow Bridge 3/20/17

Diesel was rescued by Dachshund Rescue of Houston in 2009 and was a Forever Foster.

Our hearts go out to the Adcock family for the loss of their precious little guy.

Minnie Pearl Stebbins

We didn't seem to have enough time with Minnie but are so grateful for the time we had. She was such a sweet, stubborn, quiet Dachshund. I think we only heard her bark maybe ten times in the four and a half years she was ours. Amazing, I know! Here are some of our favorite pics of Minnie.

DREAM extends our deepest sympathy to Scott and Georgianna for the loss of their sweet Minnie Pearl.

Sweet Saucy in her youth

Saucy Caillouet
April 1, 1998 - January 31, 2017

I had to let my sweet Saucy go yesterday. She was down to only 3 lbs 11 oz, was hardly eating anything and could barely keep her balance when she would try to walk. She was still processing fluids and passing urine, but had begun only getting her front paws into the litter box before starting to pee right on the floor; she was also constipated a lot and I was beginning to find little surprises she was dropping off around the house.

All of this and more had me pretty sure the night before that it was time, so I called Dr. Kimberly at Compassionate Pet Vet in the morning to make arrangements. It was my normal telecommute day and the weather was absolutely gorgeous, so I set up my workstation outside with a spot for Saucy right next to me, and we got to spend the whole day together enjoying the sunshine and each other. It was as perfect a day as I had hoped for.

The vet came to the house about 4:30 and she was so sweet and kind and gentle, and I could tell that it really affected her too. She was very professional but not just all cold and clinical and methodical, which I really appreciated. She even choked up a bit at a couple of points, and gave me hugs and lots of comforting words throughout. The process was peaceful and I got to stroke Saucy's head, look into her eyes and tell her goodbye as she went to sleep. There could not have been much doubt in her mind about how much she means to me.

Our hearts go out to Chris for the loss of his beloved Saucy.
