The passing of a sweet spirit.
1995 - 2011
We laid to rest our sweet pug, Dolly over the weekend.
She came to stay with us 9 years ago at the age of 6 or 7.
She was a retired breeder for a puppy mill in Missouri, no longer of prime breeding age she was sold at an auction along with other dogs that "no longer earn their keep" and through the kind efforts of the dog rescue groups in Missouri and Illinois, she was then
spayed, given vet. care, quality food and loved by a foster family until she was put up for adoption and became our girl.
We never tired of watching her blossom into the beautiful little pug she was meant to be.
Silent, (we never heard her bark) stoic and intuitive she had many special qualities that we never tired of noticing and marveling at.
We always felt she gave us more than we gave her.
We eventually went on to adopt two more pugs, and recently a lanky hound mix.
While we will miss your sweet face dear one, our hearts are filled with gladness that we were the ones that you shared your life with.
Rest in peace sweet girl.
Please consider adoption.
