Named Liberty Belle because she was born on the 4th of July. A Rottweiler attitude in a Yorkie body. Fierce and protective of those she loved, she gave us 14 years of unconditional love. Three years without her now and she has been missed every day of those years

Thank you Dixie for touching so many people's lives and reminding us what is good about the world. Also, reminding all of us that we need to take a break and play ball sometimes.

Honoring Oreo Oblinger-Hammond. A truly special guy. Rest in Peace, Oreo. You guarded the family well.

Kamii was a rescue dog that I had. She was the best dog and friend I could have ever asked for. Shelter dogs have so much love to give. I currently have a wishbone pup, Dexter, and I couldn’t be more thankful!
