Comet Crossland

Rainbow Bridge April 16, 2020

IN MEMORY OF COMET (2003 - 2020). My baby girl crossed over the Rainbow Bridge today. She put up a valiant fight but her body was too tired. Anyone who knew Comet, knew how much of a fighter she was. She had strong opinions of who she liked (very few) and disliked (many). In 2006, she came into my life when she made it very clear to her former owners that the new human baby was an unwelcomed addition and had to go. Comet was never a dog big on hugs, being carried, snuggling, receiving kisses or giving kisses. She excelled at begging and showing other dogs who was queen bee. She set high standards for herself - never destroyed anything, would be embarrassed if she got sick and insisted on doing her business outside whenever possible, even in her last hours. I am blessed that she allowed me to be her mom and that she gave me the time to say good-bye. My heart is broken and tomorrow morning I will be lost without her waking me up at 5 am.

DREAM extends our deepest sympathy to Bonnie for the loss of her precious little Comet.

















































Maisy Spring

Rainbow Bridge April 9, 2020

RIP Maisy Mae, my sweet diva girl who would have been 16 in May. Very independent and demanding, she was definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Our hearts go out to Judy for the loss of her sweet Maisy.























































Precious Goyette

Adopted November 3, 2016
Rainbow Bridge January 17, 2019

Sad news. Precious passed away this evening in her Aunt Kristen's arms. We asked Kristen to check on her while we were at the Royal wedding and we couldn't see her on the nanny cam. We decided she needed oxygen and asked Kristen to meet us at MedVet. She passed away as soon as Kristen got her in the car. I am so sad. I thought she would live forever with all her pain in the butt quirks. I am thankful she wasn't alone. So sorry Kristen you had to go through this.

Sometime in October 2016, Stephanie Gemmolva Ganucheau tagged me in a Craigslist post for a person rehoming two of his three dachshunds. I messaged him and he had already rehomed one but not the other. The other was Precious. She didn't look good in the photo and I asked why she was so heavy and he said it was from breeding her. Well my thought was she would have to still be pregnant to be THAT heavy. So I asked him to surrender her to JPAS because (1) I didn't want to meet him and (2) I wanted it to be legal so if I rescued her, her could never take her back.

Dr. Wisdom immediately saw her and said she had Cushing's. Well I didn't know what that was but it wasn't something the shelter could fix but it was treatable. So I brought her home November 3rd after her spay and started her fundraisers. I brought her to SAF to see Dr. Lamarsh to get the process started. She was 34lbs at the time and missing all of her hair. The previous owner left her outside because she would pee in the house so much. It was because of the Cushing's. He never brought her to the vet. I think she was 10 years old and still not spayed so kind of a jerk owner.

So after many tests to figure out the right dosage of meds, two surgeries to remove 10 mammary tumors and pull teeth, about a year later she was looking good. Her hair filled in. She was down to 17lbs. She walked funny because of being so over weight and her body was deformed.

Looking through so many photos since last night, I am glad my phone is always full of photos because it reminds me of all my dogs and how quirky they really are. She is the 3rd senior we have lost in a little over a year and 8th dog Tim and I have said goodbye to in our 12 years together. I know seniors are my favorite and I know they won't be with us long but I am so glad I gave them all the best ending of their lives.

Precious was spoiled, got so many toys during her first year and that girl would snuggle with any dog. She woke us up early with low cries at 6am for food. She would bark in the morning if you forgot her meds. She knew the sound of the pill pocket bag she would run for that but nothing else. She had so much personality and I am so glad we had 3 amazing years together. Thank you to her Godmother for all of her care the last 3 years and to the many who donated to her fundraisers in the beginning to get this girl healthy. It takes a village! And thank you Aunt Kristen for coming here last night to check on her so she didn't die alone. I am forever grateful for Aunt Kristen for helping me with our too many dogs.

Any donations made in Precious' name to DREAM Dachshund Rescue would make my heart so happy. Taking in the severely neglected dachshunds is rough, but the love they give is endless.
