Tesla "Tess" Leal

When tomorrow starts without me
And I'm not there to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me

I know how much you loved me
As much as I loved you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too

So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart.

~ David Romano

We extend our condolences to Diana
for the loss of her sweet girl.

Hal Spencer

March 1, 2018

Most of you are already aware that my sweet husband Hal Spencer passed away last Thursday, March 1st. He lost an almost one year battle with cancer and I still cannot find the words to write about how much I love him. It is heartbreaking to see our pups and cat grieving for him not being here - especially his best buddy, Digs, who sits at the dog gate every afternoon around 5 PM waiting for him to come through that front door.

We are all mourning the loss of our dear friend, Hal Spencer. Hal loved his Dachshunds. He and his wife, Deborah, have been involved with DREAM Dachshund Rescue since its inception. He will be greatly missed by all of his DREAM family. Our hearts go out to Deborah for the loss of her sweet husband and best friend. Please visit Hal's GoFundMe page to make a donation in Hal's memory.
