Sweet Raleigh got to spent the last few months of his life being loved and cared for. Unfortunately he was the victm of a form of cancer or possibly COPD and kidney failure. He lost his battle 9/21/12 He has developed extensive tumors, edema and has trouble controlling his bladder and breathing in the last week. The vet said it's only a matter of time and he is now very immobile and fatigued. Thank you for giving us a dog we thoroughly enjoyed for the short time we have had him
Rambo was a sweet little puppy that crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Saturday, October 18, 2008. Rambo and two of his siblings were found at a Corgi breeder's in Texas. We're figuring they were dumped there. The breeder got a hold of MARS to transport the puppies to MN. Rambo endured a long trip to MN from Texas, only to end up with Pneumonia and Distemper shortly after his arrival. It was more than the poor puppy could bear. He crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 1:30 am.
Raven, formerly known as Gunner
In June of 2007, my boyfriend and I adopted a baby hound mix pup from your rescue who at the time had the name Gunner. We ended up renaming him Raven. On November 5, 2009 we lost our best friend to a congenital heart condition. It all happened so fast, and at the time we did everything we could to save him. After going through a blood transfusion and then draining fluid from around his heart, Raven went into cardiac arrest and the U of M doctors were unable to save him. We continue to miss him every day and his urn and pictures of him through out our house remind us how much he meant to us. In honor of Raven, we adopted a redbone coonhound mix and have fallen in love with him so much already. Thank you for adopting a dog to us that gave us so much joy in his short life. He impacted my entire family's life more than he will ever know. Raven was the center of our world and some days are still so difficult. Thanks for all you do in finding dogs loving homes. If not for you, we would have never met "the best dog ever".
Ricky now known as Sammy
On May 13, 2009, I adopted my Sammy from MARS. He was about seven years old at the time. It broke my heart when he passed on January 27, 2016. Sammy was always with me and took several trips to Iowa to help me take care of my parents. He was such a wonderful little companion who was happy just being with me. I loved the long walks we took especially in November in the evening when people had put up their Christmas lights. When walking in the field by the pond, he would chase the Canadian Geese barking all the way. It was so difficult letting go of such a wonderful little dog, especially when he gave me a kiss just before he passed. I’m so happy that I told him every single day that I love him…every single day. He will always & forever be in my heart.
We adopted Rico about 5 years ago when he was roughly 2 years old. He was full of energy and chaos, he pulled on a leash, was a bit out of control and our kids absolutely loved him. They took one look in to those copper eyes and told us we had to pick him. So, we did. And what a great choice that was! Rico was the most wonderful pet our family has ever had. He was lovable, loyal, protective and a complete couch potato. He didn't fetch balls, he didn't hunt, he didn't have any tricks, but he loved to be wherever people were and was a constant presence at our feet at all times. He loved to lay in front of the fire, eat snow, greet us at the door, bark at the delivery men, pick up scraps from the kids, chase squirrels and deer, go on long walks at the park and more than ever he loved a long car ride. Rico left us all too soon. It was a sudden event and one that has been incredibly difficult to process. We only had him 5 short years and we had so much more fun to have with him. But, life threw us a curve ball. We will dearly miss our 'Big Fella' so very much and it hurts to know that we will not see him for some time. We know Rico will never be replaced as he truly was one of a kind. He was a very important part of our family and our house is empty without him. We hope you have found your friends up in Heaven, Rico and are jumping and playing and watching over us with Grandpa Jack. We hope you are sleeping on fluffy clouds and eating bad food and waiting for us to join you someday. We look forward to crossing that bridge with you, buddy. Until then, know you are loved and are always in our hearts. You were an incredible companion and our lives are forever changed because of you. Thank you for all the love you gave us. XOXO.
