We will always think that Potion was what God had in mind when he created the dog. Her titles speak to what she could do, but they are the tip of the iceberg of who she was.
She was confident and kind, smart and sweet, fun, fast and funny, athletic and intuitive, and we loved her beyond expression.
That hemangiosarcoma robbed us of another 7 years with her is a great sadness we will carry always. She was the perfect partner and best friend.
In a lifetime of dogs, Potion was the dog of a lifetime. I can only hope that when I close my eyes here for the last time, there will be a little white paw on my chest when I open them again.

Popeye crossed the Rainbow Bridge just a couple of weeks after his 9th birthday. Though his life was far too short, he was the center of our world for those nine years.
His accomplishments were amazing, well beyond anything we ever dreamed of. He was also a wonderful friend and companion, both for us and the many others he affected through his therapy work.
He took his work seriously, but he also brought humor and love to all that he touched.
We will think of him every day and try to focus on all the gifts he brought into our lives the last nine years.

Molly crossed the Rainbow Bridge, where her many friends – Magellan, Macy, Morgan, Willy and others – were there to welcome her.
Molly was a Working Water Dog and had advanced titles in Obedience (UD) and Rally (RE). She was a therapy dog (TDI) and had a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) title.
In addition to her many accomplishments, she was simply a perfect dog. People who met her were always amazed at how friendly and gentle she was.
Molly is already making new friends across the Rainbow Bridge.

We chose your name long before we knew how much of a “joy” you would add to our lives. You were our beautiful, gentle and wonderful girl. You fought a courageous battle with Lymphoma and prevailed for 2 additional years. We will always have a special place for you in our hearts. We miss you terribly!
Helm’s Alee Because Elk Run"Perry"
10/26/2004 - 05/21/2014
Perry was named for singer Perry Como, in the hopes that he would be as mellow. He was! He had the joyful spark of a puppy, but was sweet & calm. This made him an exemplary therapy dog. For 6 years, Perry supplied love and games of fetch at an assisted living facility. Two days before he died of hemangiosarcoma, Perry was in the emergency vet’s waiting room; he was wearing a cone, stitches lined his abdomen, yet he headed to the elderly persons nearby and gave affection– still on his mission.
Perry took very good care of me, too. His love was boundless, his kisses precious. He made me laugh, especially when he helped himself to only the gourmet items in the refrigerator whenever I forgot the padlocks.
Wherever he is now, he is providing love, laughs and joy.

What an amazing boy – we treasure every single moment spent together and the joy you brought to our lives. There were so many things we still had to do, but your accomplishments while you were with us far surpassed any expectations we had when you joined our family six short years ago. You were funny, sensitive and an amazing athlete. You lived to run agility and it is remarkable how many lives you touched with your enthusiasm for the sport. You will never ever be forgotten. Our first PWD, first agility dog and always first in our hearts – your spirit lives on forever. We miss you Jazzy boy.
Stargazer’s Quixotic Comfort"Sancho Panza"
08/23/1995 - 10/03/2008
Son of Star (Glenllyn’s Stargazer Lily) and Spinnaker (Fantaseas Spinnaker). Amidst our sorrow though, we comfort ourselves in knowing that if it is at all possible to pursue food thievery on the “other side”, Sancho will be gleefully leading the pack, teaching all those less-skilled K9s how to open cupboard doors (with baby locks), pry open plastic containers and sweep counters. I hope he manages to steal, swipe and swindle all the bread and pasta he can find.
I know everyone understands when I say he was more than a dog, quite human, and yet void of human foible. We welcomed him as he inserted himself into every available nook and cranny in our lives. He had an endless supply of happiness to dole out which I often relied upon.
Simply looking at him made me smile, every single time. That is something.

You left us too soon, but we have so many wonderful memories: Our trips to Hatteras, Sunday rides to see the sheep at a nearby farm, playing ball and taking your victory runs only when you caught it. Most of all, you gave us a part of you in Sockratease, SuzieQute, Cappy, and Zeus.

Rugby epitomized the motto, “Attitude is Everything”. He had a certain presence that was obvious even when he was a young puppy. If you had the opportunity to meet Rugby, you never forgot him. He was an amazing mover, with tremendous reach, drive, and carriage. I was lucky to be able to call him mine. I miss his sense of humor, his enthusiasm, and even how annoying he could be when he wanted something and I was not smart enough to figure out what it was. Bless you Roo Roo.
