Lolly Ligne

Adopted 09/15/17
Deceased 05/30/22

With a heavy heart I share the news of Lolly's passing.  She had been declining for a while now, and started having seizures. I had to take her to an emergency vet.  I said good bye to her and kissed her.  I'm sad. I just hope that Sampson and I made her life happy.  Thank you for letting me adopt her.

Padme Amidala

Deceased 05/19/22

Padme crossed the rainbow bridge at age 19. DREAM rescued her from a kill shelter in 2016 and we were blessed to have her for several more years. She filled out lives with love. We loved all her traits. Even during her last days, she never missed a meal opportunity. Every evening she would make a point to walk around the kitchen to tell us it was dinner time. She was sweet, a wonderful companion and very resilient. We miss her every day, and her four legged siblings lay on her bed and remember her. Rest in Peace baby girl, we love you and you will be in our hearts forever.

Levi Lens

Deceased 05/06/22

It was with great sadness that Levi's foster family, after consulting with their veterinarian, determined it was time to let Levi cross the Rainbow Bridge. Levi was doubly blessed to have them as his foster family, not once, but twice. DREAM is so grateful to this kind family for welcoming into their home and loving the senior Dachshunds.

Lucy Lentil

Adopted 06/04/17
Deceased 04/21/22

I wanted to let y'all know that we lost our sweet Lucy on April 21st. She had been on a special diet for the past couple years due to elevated kidney levels and was doing good, but last week she started having seizures and the vet found that her kidney levels were extremely high. They started treatment to try and lower them, but nothing was working and she passed on Thursday. We are all heartbroken and will miss her very much.

Rolf Mustafar

Adopted 02/07/16
Deceased 04/21/22

Jake was pulled from the Austin Animal Center with plans to be our DREAM foster until he found his forever home. He was neutered when he entered the shelter as a stray, but with no microchip, owners could not be found. A few days after arriving in his foster home, we noticed that he was having seizures and collapsing several times/day. His veterinarian quickly determined he had epilepsy and it was easily controlled by twice daily medication. Seizures were very infrequent on the medication and no stuffed squeak toy was safe around Jake. Our big orange tabby learned to avoid Jake as cats were not his favorite but since he was such a small dog, cats usually won in a skirmish. Several years ago, he developed Cushings Disease, which really slowed him down and eventually took him from us.

Pei Wi Prancer

Adopted 02/25/15
Deceased 04/16/22

I adopted my sweet Peewee when she was almost 12 years old. It didn't matter to me that she was already a senior. She was perfect. Quiet, already housetrained. All she wanted to do was be with me. She's the only dog I've had who would lay at my feet all day while I worked at my computer, content to hang out with me until it was time for dinner. Never pushy or demanding like most of my other Dachshunds. She loved me, and I her. We were perfect for each other. We grew older together.

I knew her time was getting short when I had to wake her to eat. It became more difficult for her to get around, stumbling and sometime falling over when she walked. She never complained. During her last couple of weeks, she got stuck under furniture and put herself into corners, unable to back out. She eventually lost interest in food, and then water. I hoped, like most of us do, that she would pass peacefully in her sleep, but she hung on.

On her last day, she didn't get out of her bed. I knew she was ready to cross, but needed my help. Even after the sedative kicked in, she continued to look up at me while I was crying, as if to say "I'm still here for you". I held her tightly and said "I know".

Rest in peace, sweet girl. You are forever in my heart.

Katy Kanzi

Deceased 04/12/22

Our BB8, adopted Oct 2016, has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She was a wonderful dog and will be missed by the whole family. Our grandson loved to pet her when he visited. She passed on April 12th from a combination of age and back issues.

Grayson Grasshopper

Adopted 12/22/19
Deceased 03/04/22

When I got home Wednesday evening, Grayson could hardly move and was yelping in pain. I cuddled him all night and rushed him to my vet as soon as they opened on Thursday morning. They did x-rays and said he had three discs that had collapsed in his neck, and three in his back. They did injections and kept him overnight. On Friday morning they said he was worse and was completely paralyzed in his back legs. We spoke with the surgeon, but there was no guarantee that surgery would help. Grayson was in so much pain, even with the pain meds, that at noon on Friday we made the difficult decision put Grayson to sleep. I am beyond devastated and I just keep reminding myself that at least he is no longer in pain.

He was my little man and such a loving a sweet boy. I was his person. I feel so lost without him. He’s going to be missed so much by our entire family, especially Charlie our other weenie dog. They were inseparable and he followed her everywhere. He will always be in our hearts. 🤍

Heidi Hawthorn

Deceased 01/17/22

As our eyes grow dim and our ears hear less we still need love and understanding. Heidi came to us a few years back needing to find a home which functioned on her time schedule. Get up at 9:00am, pee twice a day( last one at 10:30 not 10:00) after she sniffed around for 6 minutes and NEVER EVER be held more than 90 seconds. No covering me up (except during the snowmagedon, 4 blankets then) and be sure her meals had chicken breast, pumpkin, and broccoli. She absolutely put on her pretty dress at least once a day and walk to the end of the driveway. Never mention she was a forever foster she was absolutely mine until she flew to the Rainbow 🌈 Bridge at 2:30 pm today in my arms. We love you and our hearts are broken Mom, Dasha, and Precious
