Lilly and Tyler Pass Over the Rainbow Bridge

We are sad but proud to share our memorials of our recent losses. Lilly crossed the Rainbow Bridge last month, and Tyler just last week.

We can’t say how much all our guys have touched our lives. We look forward to another addition to our lives.

Lilly – October 18, 2008 – March 6, 2020

Lilly joined our family at age 8, in September of 2016. We called her our “flower” because she was such a beautiful girl with amazing, big brown eyes. She was such a wonderful companion, and had a perfect personality. When outside and enjoying walks, she was an athlete, walking quickly and with great determination. When she was ready to return, though, she’d let you know! Inside, she was a calm sweetie, and her “Mom” was definitely her favorite two-legger. Lilly always followed her to the door, and waited patiently for her return, always greeting everyone who came in with love and enthusiasm. She had her routines and favorite activities – every night she’d chase her tail (always catching it), and then roll over for as many belly rubs as she could con out of you. She loved chasing her tennis ball, catching it on the first bounce, and carrying it on her walks. And she could find “needy” tennis balls on walks like nobody’s business. Our sweet girl passed away at age 11 on March 6. The happiness and love and memories she brought to our lives will be with us always.

 

Tyler – January 26, 2005 – April 10, 2020

We first met Tyler when he was three. Seeking a companion for our yellow Lab, Cusko, Tyler came bounding into our lives, literally. During our home introduction, he ran into our house, did a non-stop drive-by snatch of a cat toy on the floor, and jumped right onto our couch. That clinched it for us all – we had found our new forever companions! Over the course of the next 12 years, Tyler was a faithful, loving and ever-caring family member. He was always vocal, he “danced” and barked for breakfast and dinner in his excitement, and was always happy. If you were really lucky, he might occasion you with a soft kiss on the hand – but he was very selective with those sweet gifts! He was quite the charmer and he knew just how to get what he wanted – and he always succeeded. And importantly, he helped our other sweet dogs cross their Rainbow Bridges – being with them till their ends. Sadly, we lost Tyler at the age of 15 on April 10, 2020.  He gave us his all until the end.  He will forever be in our hearts.
