Golf Kart


Date of Birth: Apr 27, 2013

Date of Passing: May 20, 2023

Henry was our beloved supervisor dog! He loved being part of whatever we were doing. He loved running beside and riding on our golf cart around the farm. He took his job of keeping the squirrels up in the trees with much seriousness. He was a complete natural at providing emotional support and he really was attentive if he saw his humans start to leak from their eyes. He grew out of puppyhood but never lost his love of toys. Often he would bring his beloved Squatchy or his stick to bed with him at night. He enjoyed his blankets all year and would do his best to cover himself up but usually he needed a little help! Like many Vizslas, he was a true Velcro dog. His absence is painful because his presence was so completely wonderful.

Colorful Flowers

Lily (black&white) was the daughter of Daisy, we chose her out of Daisy's only litter.. She looks exactly like her father, but he was quite tiny. She had the most beautiful face an ears, that I thought she'd never grow into. She loved to run on the land, play with her toys, an especially treats,an lap time. She slept in our bed since she was a puppy. She would put her paw on our arm to let you know she wanted some attention. She was always by my side, especially during a difficult time in my life. She fell in love with my new life partner, an she stole his heart too. She was so happy. She will be so dearly missed, our hearts break. We love you, Lily Lily you'll forever be in our hearts and souls, until we meet again on Rainbow Bridge. I would sincerely like to thank Full Circle Pet, for making the hardest decision I've ever made, a smoother transition. Thier empathy, an compassion is heart warming. Even as an RN, thier educational materials were so,so helpful.This service is Heaven sent. Thank You.. Chuck and Marilyn.

Daisy came to us as a rescue when she was 3. Daisy loved food and treats more than anything. She enjoyed car rides with her family, many walks, and towards the end of her life she loved stroller rides outside. Daisy had a knack for finding baby rabbits in the yard, and loved to chase squirrels. Daisy sitting like a prairie dog on her hind legs and begging for treats is something we will never forget. Daisy was a stubborn, sweet, playful, and gentle girl who will always be missed.

Cabin in the Woods


Date of Birth: Oct 27, 2011

Date of Passing: Nov 23, 2022

Zoe was our first rescue dog! We were lucky to bring her to her fur-ever home as a puppy. We enjoyed her endless energy. She loved chasing balls, digging in snow and swimming. Zoe especially loved spending time in the Northwoods. Zoe had a gorgeous double coat and huge beautiful eyes. She was independent and did things her way. When we got our second lab rescue dog, Jack, she showed him the way and helped him overcome extreme anxiety. Our girl Zoe will live in our hearts forever!

Brown Bear Mother and Cubs


Date of Birth: May 30, 2013

Date of Passing: Sep 22, 2022

It has taken a few months to write this memorial for Bear (aka Bubba and Catfish) but I would be doing him an injustice to not let the world know he existed. He was a handful at times-when he was younger and sometimes when he was older. Bear thought of himself as a lap dog even though he was 95 pounds. That didn’t stop him from climbing up on your lap and settling in. It wasn’t unusual to wake up in the morning to find him snuggled in right next to you and taking up more than his share of the bed. Despite time catching up with him he remained a loyal companion and friend. We miss you so much Bubba. “We loved you your whole life. We’ll miss you for the rest of ours.” See you on the other side big boy.

Heart Confetti


Date of Birth: May 28, 2009

Date of Passing: Dec 24, 2022

Tobias was a gentle giant with the sweetest demeanor. He loved attention and would generously reward you with the most soothing purrs and the tenderest kneading of his paws. Tobias was a snuggle buddy who loved to keep you warm as he nestled into your lap (or leave you a present of cat hair if he settled into a coat left on a chair). Always a helper, he loved to keep us company while we worked on projects. Thank you, Baby Boy, for all of the love you so generously and unconditionally gave us over the years. You truly won over the hearts of everyone you came in contact with. We loved you so and will always keep you close to our hearts as we await the time we will see you again.

Maggie. My first. Our first. Curious, sassy, sweet, fluffy as a puppy. Lover of piano music, walks, your backyard, your squeaky buddies like Hippo, pill pockets, ALL PEOPLE.

I got Hercules as a tiny kitten as soon as I graduated high school and was my best friend while learned to be on my own. He saw me through my first apartment to finding and marrying my husband to having a kid. He had always been my baby, even as his kidneys started to fail at age 14. I wish I had more time with you, baby, but I promise we will meet again. I love you so much ♡

WAITING AT THE DOOR I was just a pup when we first met, I loved you from the start, you picked me up and took me home and placed me in your heart. Good times we had together, we shared all life could throw, but years have passed all too quickly, my time has come to go. I know how much you miss me, I know your heart is sore, I see the tears that fall when I’m not waiting at the door. You always did your best for me your love was plain to see for even though it broke your heart you set my spirit free. So please be brave without me, one day we’ll meet once more, for when you’re called to Heaven I’ll be Waiting at the Door.

We love you buddy! We miss you every day! We have so so many good memories of you! Until we meet again! Love, Mom, Dad, Anna, Sam, Skyler & Juno a.k.a. “June Bug”

Last Sunday we said good bye to our beloved, sweet, sweet Waynie. It has been a profoundly sad week. Although he was 20 and we tried to prepare ourselves for the inevitable, we are heartbroken. He was such a huge part of our lives and so very, very special to us. We loved him like no other and we’ll miss him immensely and forever. We would like to thank Dr. Carrie for allowing us to be with him at home and for the care and compassion she showed us.

Autumn Leaves


Date of Passing: Jul 8, 2022

Little Maya came to us on a cold damp fall day when my husband found her crying in our backyard. After no one had reported her missing to police or our local humane society, she found her way into our hearts. She always was a skittish, petite little thing who’d run and hide if any stranger came into our home. Her instincts were sharp and she’d come out just as soon as the coast was clear. Everything was on her terms. Maya hated to be picked up but would jump up on our laps and give us loving when it suited her. If I didn’t pay her enough attention, she’d be head butting me to make me notice her. While annoying when I was trying to read or watch TV, it is the thing I miss most. Rest well little one. You are missed in a big way.

Dog in Farm


Date of Birth: Feb 17, 2010

Date of Passing: Jul 6, 2022

When Hershey and I found each other, she was already ten years old. She'd had a difficult life, so it wasn't easy at first to go for walks and be around other dogs. Once she got the hang of it though, she loved to go walking and for rides in the car. She even became friends with another friend's dog! The two of them loved going to the private dog park where they had the place to themselves to run, check out all the smells and play! She was my sweet girl and I loved her spirit. We grew to be best buddies in a short amount of time and we made the most of it- l definitely miss her!

Appa came to us from Puerto Rico. He was rescued by an amazing organization there from a life on the streets. He was scarred, emaciated, missing his tail, and would not make eye contact with humans or other animals. After some TLC, he was sent to Wisconsin to find a family. We were lucky enough to welcome him into our pack as our second dog. Our son, in particular, was smitten with him.

Despite weak back legs and a lifetime of trauma, Appa was a gentle giant who slowly came out of his shell. In the four years we had him, he became famous for his goofy antics and smile. When we welcomed a third dog into our home, Appa was that frightened little rescue's instant favorite.

In his last months, Appa's body was healthy, but his mind began to stray from us. He began barking in fear at things only he could see, and began spending his nights getting lost in the house he knew so well. He was anxious and withdrawn, seemingly into memories of more painful times.

We promised him when he came to us that he would never know pain or fear ever again. It was time to keep that promise.

Appa died at home on a beautiful summer afternoon, surrounded by his pack of humans and canines. It was one of the most painful and beautiful moments of our family's life. Doctor Carrie has a presence that is more angelic than human. She brought with her a peace and compassion that we sorely needed. Our other two dogs, who usually jump all over visitors, calmly greeted her, responding to her energy. We miss our sweet Appa every day. We miss his way of stealing our spots on the sofa when we get up for a moment. We miss his excitement when it's time for a walk, and we miss seeing him lounge in the sun in our backyard. A dog who had experienced some of the greatest cruelties of life was somehow the sweetest we've ever known.

We will forever miss our boy. Love you, Appa. Your legs are strong again, and there's no more fear.

See you across the rainbow bridge. <3

It is with heavy hearts we had to let our special little boy Fred reach the rainbow bridge today. We were so fortunate to have Dr. Carrie help us through the process. It was her kind and loving words that helped us navigate through this very difficult time. As our hearts break, we know Fred is now pain free, running and playing and excited to be with those who were waiting on the other side. We truly feel blessed to have had the best dog ever.

Handsome Sam.


He was our "Little Man". We loved growing up and growing old together. From Sam the kitten who would terrorize his older sister Chelsea.  To the gentle blind Sweet Sam, you are loved and missed.

Dutch spent his early years on the road with his Dad. They traveled the country - hiking the mountains , going on long road trips to their next adventure. You could find him soaking up the sun on a sunny day and waiting for the next time his dad said  the words “load up”. Dutch was always ready for his next adventure. He spent countless hours cuddled up  anywhere with his mom. He was his mom’s protector and brightened each of her days.

All  of the people that have met Dutch throughout his adventures and his life know what a kind, sweet and beautiful soul he had.

We were blessed to have been his dog parents. He will be missed every single day and we will keep him in our hearts forever and always.


Dutch/Bubba/Bud/The Dude - We love you. We hope you are running wild and free.
