2007? – 5/27/15
We are so sad to report that Sheldon has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He had stopped eating and drinking and he started peeing in the house, so his owner took him to the vet. They found a large tumor on his spleen, and they said that operating to remove the tumor would probably only extend his life a couple of months. It was decided that the kindest thing was to put him to sleep without prolonging his suffering.
Sheldon was a very friendly, sweet boy. He is sorely missed by both his human and dog family members. His dog pal Josie has missed him acutely, wandering around the house, sniffing Sheldon’s leash and collar and whining.
Rest in peace, dear Sheldon.

It is with broken hearts that we report that Calli died on Wednesday June 10th.
Both Calli and I got salmonella, and she wasn’t doing too well to begin with. She had lost a lot of weight and she was real skinny. The salmonella was too much for her at her age (14 years old). But she went out memorably… As she was dying, I tried to put some water in her mouth to make her more comfortable. She chomped down on my hand biting my finger. She died later that day, lying in her favorite place in the front hall.
We miss her every day. But we feel we gave her the best life a dog could ever want. She and I went on an hour-long hike in the woods 340 days a year. Only heavy rain or snow kept us from our hike. She also was our official farm dog. She would supervise me and keep an eye out for coyotes as I worked on my farm. I’m going to really miss that. And even though she got lots of love, it was food that made her the most happy. She did real well on that too. It’s good to live with a Johnson and Wales chef in the house.
Thank you for giving us an unbelievably great dog that we had for 11 years.
