In Memory of Jake June 17th 1996 – September 12, 2013
From the beginning, Jake taught me to love life, live life to the fullest, and most importantly to always Smile... until, and for your final moment. For 16 1/2 wonderful, action packed years Jake and I traveled for my business some 26 states together. We experienced the country more than most. Jake's extraordinary Spirit and Sense for Safety allowed me to go places I would not normally go alone. We hiked many canyons, we ventured many watering holes, from rivers to lakes to the pacific ocean. We camped in some of Gods most precious places, and our wild animal adventures are ones to tell stories about for years to come.
Jake was loyal and devoted to my Safety, So caring of my spirit to always provide me with unconditional love. He will truly be missed by everyone who he has touched. Jake’s spirit and presence will live on forever as my spirit guide. He will forever be # 1 protector of our family!
In Memory of Buck April 2006 – July 2013
Our beloved Buck came into our lives in April 2006. 8 weeks old and feet large enough to carry a much larger dog as we would soon find out. It did not take long to win our hearts. His devotion to our family was steadfast. His first three years spent in Michigan where he was born. His last 4 in Az. He never showed any aggression only love and devotion. My children grew up with this dog as he did with them. Buck loved to play fetch from day 1 any ball every ball. As i remember him I have to laugh thinking of all the guests through the years that would wake up at dawn just to throw the ball to Buck. This dog showed me the true meaning of selflessness. My home is very quiet and solemn without my brother. In closing I would like to thank Dr Fixler and staff for there diligence and genuine understanding of this difficult situation. Nothing will ever replace my wonderful boy. But I know he is at peace and hurts no more and i thank u for that.
