R.I.P. Lexie, a great family member. 10/20/2023, 9 years old.


Some more recent photos of Tuxxie and MR. O. MR. O has taken to our family and we to him. He is such a sweetie and lover. Sometimes we think he is a dog.





Koa's last day in this realm....

It's almost impossible for me to believe, but 3 weeks ago, today, was Audi's last day, and we had to send Koa on his way TODAY. Poor Koa had cancer of the spleen and a another tumor in his heart, which was just too much.

Koa's birthday was 3/10/2011, so he was 2 months shy of 10 years old. He was a fantastic member of our family. Everyone that knew him, loved him dearly. He was always with a ball in his mouth. Whenever anyone came over, he wanted to play. The ball was more important than food. And, he was so friendly to all. He and Audi loved each other so much and Audi's death 3 weeks ago must have been extremely hard on Koa. We weren't sure what was really wrong with him until the new x-rays and ultra sound performed today. There was nothing really that could be done. I think he knew this was it and he spent this past week loving me like he never did before...licking my face, ears, legs; and staying close to me almost all the time.

If you scroll below to the 2/16/2013 update; that tells the story of Koa; how he first came to us, and has a couple short sweet videos of him with Audi.

Here are some photos of his last days here and then the final 2 this morning...Rest in Peace; give my undying love to Audi when you see him, and we will never forget you.




Audi's last day in this realm....

The day the music died....We had to make the decision we knew would come one day and hoped would never come....we had to send our beloved Audi to the great rainbow bridge. As you all know; saying goodbye to a great family member is not an easy task. He went downhill very quickly and he couldn't stand up or move since yesterday afternoon, even though he actually jumped, by himself, onto our couch yesterday. He didn't pee since yesterday afternoon and didn't even pee in his bed all night long or this morning before the vet. He refused to eat or drink anything. His time had come. He was 14 years 4 months 8 days old. He was the greatest and we will never ever forget him. This page was initially built for him in October, 2006. Scroll all the way to the bottom to see precious Audi as a puppy, some of his siblings, and his adventures as he grew up. On an extreme personal note; Audi was my absolute partner as he knew everything I felt, my mood, how to make me smile, and so much more. I knew every inch of him that he loved me to rub, tickle, pet, scratch. He was our joy. He was the first family member that Debbie & I got together that we no longer have. I will forever watch his videos I made, look at all the 100's and 100's of photos, and go over all the fantastic memories in my head. I simply loved that dog more than I can ever convey. It is so true.....Our dogs/cats are so important to us; but we are EVERYTHING to them.  Audi lived a great life, long and happy. He got along with everyone and every vet he ever had said he was an amazingly great dog. He will be a tremendous asset to all in his next life and I will never ever ever forget him.

R.I.P. Loco

7/13/2015 Update:

Loco's last video on his last day of life in this world


R.I.P. Loco Loco was in our family the longest, since 1996. A very loyal cat that was through it all. He was initially brought home by Karen, from the Phoenix Humane Society to nurse as he was the "runt" of the litter. He immediately tried to jump off our 2nd floor landing and was caught just in the nik of time; thus he was crazy, so he was named Loco. And, that name fit him 100%. Loco slept with me & Karen, with Lauri, with Matt, then  with me & Deb. Loco endured the long flight to Hawaii, learned to live with our first dog Samantha, then Deb's dogs Timber & Tasha, then Matt's cats. Also, Loco lived with his brother Yoda; they got along great together. Here's a picture of them at the Myrtle house, in the window.

Loco learned to like our newer dog Koa and put up with our new cat, Tuxxie. He had many medical problems throughout his long life but was always loveable, enjoyed limited petting, especially under his chin, and really loved to sit on Deb's lap. We will miss you Loco. Enjoy it in kitty paradise! Aloha

2/8/2013 Update:

2/6/2013 Update:

Well, since about December 18, 2012, a new dog has been coming by our house, as well as ALL of our neighbor houses. He is obviously not happy wherever he lives and his owner allows him to go everywhere, frequenting the transfer (dump) station all the time. He has the potential for eating poison, getting run over by a car, shot by somebody, killed by pigs, cats or you name it; so he (Koa) has been trying out many people's homes to live at. Finally on January 15, 2013, Debbie put a mat out by the front door and Koa slept there most of the night before leaving sometime in the early morning. He is part Rottweiler, part Labrador. He is about 10 months old. The poor dog had tape worms, fleas (which he gave to Audi & neighbor dogs), and the worst, hookworms! Debbie took him to the vet, thankfully in time, and with medicine, Koa is recovering really well. Without Deb's intervention, Koa would surely have died within a short time. He loves his toys, especially his "special" ball.
