DREAM Angel Memories

Brady Beech

Deceased 12/29/17

Sweet, stubborn, demanding, and charming. I'm so glad we had the honor of being your foster people. We certainly never expected to have let you go this way, and we didn't have you long, but you sure left an awfully big paw shaped hole in our hearts. Sweet dreams, Brady boy.

Brady came down with acute pneumonia which he wasn't able to fight. Our hearts go out to Brady's fosters, Jim and Marissa, for the loss of this precious little guy.

Biscuit Blush

Deceased 12/05/17

I held little Biscuit in my arms as he breathed his final breath. He had been doing so well until a couple of weeks ago when he lost his usual ravenous Dachshund appetite. We initially thought it was "just a bug" and he'd get over it, but apparently the Cushings disease had affected his immune system to the point where he could no longer fight off infections. His poor little body was wasting away right in front of my eyes. After three nights at the vet on IV fluid and antibiotics, he continued to get worse. When he got to the point he would no longer stand or lift his head, I knew it was time to let him go. I'm going to miss you little guy, annoying bark and all. Run free over Rainbow Bridge.

Polly Pinecone

Adopted 02/14/14
Deceased 10/29/17

Polly took another sudden turn for the worse and passed away. We are just devastated and miss her so much already . Thank you all for your prayers.

Fiona Fuchsia

Deceased 10/14/17

Little Fiona, along with her brothers Finn and Fletcher were Hurricane Harvey survivors. She was not long in this world, having the unfortunate hand dealt to her by being born in a temporary shelter. She was the runt of the litter and fought a brave fight, but even with emergency vet care and all sorts of medication, she just couldn't overcome it. Our hearts are heavy, our eyes seem to run out of tears, but somehow more come when our minds go back to her. She had almost one week of love and attention. I plan on seeing her one day in Heaven. Please people, have your animals spayed, neutered, and vaccinated. These shelters are overcrowded and understaffed. Please say prayers for Fiona's brothers so they may recover from this awful illness.

Our hearts go out to Robin for the loss of her foster baby, Fiona.

Prim Petticoat

Adopted 12/12/14
Deceased 10/13/17

I adopted Primrose Petticoat on December 12, 2014. I have been wanting to let you know that she passed on October 13, 2017 due to congestive heart failure. We tried everything we could to keep her here but her heart just couldn't take it. I just wasn't able to get myself to write at the time.

She was the most wonderful companion and I loved her so much. She was with me 24 hours a day and I couldn't have asked for more love than she gave. I wanted to let you know and thank you for giving me the opportunity to have her in my life even if it was such a short time.

Forever thankful,

Gracie Gold

Adopted 09/06/14
Deceased 09/30/17

I am brokenhearted to say that Gracie passed away last weekend. Our vet said she had a herniated disc, but then she seized and died a day later. It has been a family death to us. We were so close to her. There is no one who could possibly take her place.

Eugene Felsnick

Adopted 01/30/16
Deceased 07/14/17

I just wanted to let you know that we had to put Sam down Friday, 07/14/17. He had some medical issues with his spine and it finally got so bad that I felt it was best and didn't want him to suffer anymore. Sam was such a wonderful baby and I know he knew we loved him so much. There is a void in our life right now but time will heal. I had him cremated and I will get his ashes back later this week. I can't wait to have him home again. I just wanted to say thank you for giving me such a wonderful little guy to love.

Shmi Skywalker
"Vanna Gogh"

Adopted 04/02/16
Deceased 06/29/17

Our beautiful baby died yesterday from heart worm related Caval Syndrome. We had her in ICU for 12 hours but could not save her. She was the sweetest baby ever. She appreciated everything we gave and did for her. Though we only had her for 14 months, I would not trade one minute for anything. We still have Romeo (the double dapple) and our two other girls. DREAM is awesome. When my heart mends I hope to help another baby. They all deserve a beautiful life.

Austin Flowers

Sadie Satin

Adopted 03/15/16
Deceased 06/15/17

Our sweet Sadie passed away yesterday. Richard was walking her and Peanut when another dog approached them. Richard was able to pick up Peanut and Sadie was still on her leash. She was really scared and managed to get out of her harness. The dog chased her and Sadie was hit by a car. She passed away instantly. We are so heartbroken.

She was the sweetest dog I have ever met. We had the pleasure of being a part of her life. We miss her so so much. She brightened our lives and filled our hearts with joy. We will receive her ashes in about two weeks. We are so thankful to DREAM for saving her and allowing us to foster and adopt her.

Reba Rosebud

Deceased 05/18/17

We are all so sad tonight. Reba's been with us a long time - through her puppies, her scare after her spay/mammary tumor removal, and now congestive heart failure. She didn't do well around people she didn't know, but she was so very loving and loyal to our family. She followed me everywhere. It was really hard to say goodbye.

Our hearts go out to Reba's foster, Marcie, and her family for the loss of their special girl.

Tabitha Topaz

Deceased 04/24/17

Sweet Tabitha had been on chemo since we got her because she had a malignant tumor that couldn't be removed due to its location. She was doing really well until we updated her vaccines this last time. That seemed to have triggered an auto-immune response which we were trying to get under control. We even took her to Gulf Coast because her platelet count had gotten so low. The day she died, my husband had taken her to the vet that morning for her weekly checkup, and her lab work was actually looking better. She died about an hour after he brought her home. Rest in peace, my beautiful girl. We will miss you.

Lucky Libretto

Deceased 04/22/17

Rest In Peace Grandpa Lucky. You were a cool dude the short time I knew you. 😢😢😢 See you at the bridge.

Harriet Quimby

Adopted 03/17/17
Deceased 04/03/17

We're sorry to report that Harriet passed away this morning. Two days after we adopted her, she was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. Unfortunately things worsened, and she developed fluid in her stomach as well as in her lungs. She remained the sweet, gentle little lady that she was. Even though we had her for such a short time, she made a place in our hearts. Thank you for allowing us to adopt Harriet.

Polly Padawan

Adopted 04/13/16
Deceased 03/02/17

Little Feta died peacefully in her sleep while taking an afternoon nap. She had recently been diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that caused her to have neurological issues, such as wobbliness and loss of balance. Our hearts go out to Robert and Eloisa for losing this sweet little girl way too soon.

Sport Spartan

Adopted 03/03/14
Deceased 01/13/17

Our hearts are broken. Sport developed two herniated discs this past Tuesday. We rushed him to Texas A&M where they did an MRI and took him into surgery. Yesterday he had reflexes in his back legs, which was good. But late last night he came down with Myelomalacia (disintegration of the spinal cord). Nothing could be done for him. We held him while he took his trip over Rainbow Bridge. We are sick and heartbroken. He was the most lovely little boy we have ever had.

Sport gave of himself all the love and affection any dog could give. The hole in our hearts right now is so very deep. We shall miss him terribly. He was the sweetest little man. He would crawl up on your chest, put his head on your shoulder, and wrap his little front legs around your neck to give you a HUG! His passing is going to take a long while for us to get over.
