Rest in Peace

 
Rest in Peace
Our Beloved Pup

 
You were with us such a short time,
but then again would 10 years or even 15 have been enough?
I think not.

 
Your passion for toys and playing fetch were undeniable.

 
It's amazing how much personality could be packed in your mere 14 pounds.

 
When you arrived at our home as our very first dog,
we had no idea what an incredible journey you would take us on.

 
Why we were so blessed to live with the best dog in the entire world?!

 
You were a dream come true. (Read here.)
And every one of the hundreds of allergy shots have been well worth it.
 
 
Your fetching of golf "birdie" balls made you a living legend.

 
Orion, you lived in our home a short time, 8/1/2010 - 12/3/2014,
but will live in our hearts and memories forever.
 
Please consider adopting a rescue,
it is always the best choice and the right choice.
 
Thank you Midwest Dachshund Rescue for matching us with a dog that was beyond our dreams  and expectations.
 
Blessings, Patti
