There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face…

Guy came to us at age five.  He was a rescued retired racer.  Greyhound Friends For Life saved him from a laboratory.  He
was the most respectful dog I have ever known.  He adapted to our home like he had always been there and accepted the
Yorkies unconditionally.  He would let the puppies climb all over him and not bat an eye. He even helped take care of the
tiny orphaned lambs we fostered.  Guy never met a stranger, he loved everyone.  He died much too soon of a brain
hemorrhage at age 10.  He is missed by all who knew him.  There will never be another like him, Guy was one of a kind.



What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would
     die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the
     beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected.
     Seattle, Chief of the Duwamish, Suquamish and allied Indian tribes

Our Darling Corky went to Rainbow Bridge today.  He was a fat healthy 9 yr old. 
Such a little snob and so stingy with kisses, he showed his little
heart off with such joy every time he was on a lead... a push button show dog... dependable, happy, never missed a meal, major pointed from the puppy classes breeder owner handled.
Even when John got too sick to do shows anymore, Corky could be handed to anybody to show.  He travelled with a handler to Florida to a Specialty where he won a 5 pt major.  He was shown by John and Terri at the Cow Palace several years in a row and had quite a fan club.  A handler took him to a Specialty for his last show and accidentally sprayed his eyes with hair spray, and he was "squinting " all the way around the ring but it didn't stop him from showing his little heart out.....tail up.....dead level topline. 
That was his last show.  He was retired and happy at home, and contributed more than his share to the Smoky Hairamics.
Corky got along with everybody. It was as though he didn't see any reason not to be happy.  Whenever we had company, it was Corky we would toss a lead on and "off he would go"....."ok mom....where to now?" 
He was well and happy until this past Wednesday night and  when you think you know everything, and how to help everybody, along comes "life" to kick you in the pants, and bring you down to size. 
Friday morning he received a blood transfusion and today,
Saturday 1130AM, he went to Rainbow Bridge. 
I don't know what his duty will be there, at the Bridge, but I'm
sure that Skiffington and Eliza  and Tracey and Missy are 
already introducing him .... 
Goodbye dear little friend..... we will miss you very much and we are very, very sad that you had to leave us. 
Terri  & John Shumsky
