9 Years

DOB: Unknown - Adopted: April 24, 2009 - DOD: November 7, 2018

Fuzzball passed away quietly at home from complications of Lung Cancer

Pet Parents: Lisa Williams and John William Gatus III

The day was April 23rd of 2009, Lisa and Anthony had been making a decision to bring a pet into their home for about a month. Lisa decided this day to call the humane society, where she was directed to their website for adoptable dogs. Lisa pulled up the page, on her computer was Fuzzball!
After church the following day Lisa and Anthony went to meet their new little guy. When Fuzzball was brought into the room Anthony immediately picked up this adorable tiny Pomeranian. Anthony fighting to live through a horrible disease that was taking his life looked at the little dog and said" I will be leaving this world soon, but you will make it 18 years to take care of my Lisa" The day of April 24th was the day that the Williams gained a new family member and the day that would be commemorated as Fuzzball's Birthday.
A few short years later Anthony passed away on October 23, 2013 leaving his precious furchild Fuzzball to care for Lisa in the years to come and the last name of Williams. Sadly, Fuzzball only made it 9 1/2 short years before succumbing to lung cancer. Fuzzy adopted a new father shortly after Anthony's passing, John Gatus III which in turn they became very close, doing a lot of things together and having fun.
He was named Fuzzball but was called Fuzzy. A traveler who has been all over world. He got the chance to meet Governor Pete Ricketts and his wife. His favorite past time was riding in the car and chasing cats. He loved beef jerky and any food with gravy on it, but had a tendency to be a picky eater. Fuzzball graduated from Service and Therapy School with Honors and received his Therapy Dog Certificate on February 16, 2012. The Omaha Police Department had asked Lisa for Fuzzy to become a sniff dog for smuggling operations at the airport, but after Lisa learned she would no longer be allowed to bring Fuzzy home she said " NO WAY".
Fuzzy slept with his mom, he was always there for her when she got sick or was just having a bad day. He went everywhere with her, everyone knew him and loved him. He wore sweaters and was never without his squeaky toys and stuffed bears. He went to the groomers where he adorned a teddy bear cut. He liked his human friends at the animal clinic too.

"I Love my son and will miss him deeply. God take care of my son Fuzzball. Run on all the clouds in heaven my boy" Love Your Mommy Lisa

Fuzzball will be welcomed home with open arms by those who preceded him in death Pet Parent: Anthony Williams, Pet Grandfather: Charles L. Roberts, Pet Grandmothers: Miss Gatus and Miss Bearfield, Pet Uncle: Roger Bearfield, and Pet Aunt: Mary Allen.

Pet-bituary

 


 

13 Years 9 Months

DOB January 22, 2005 – DOD October 21, 2018

Varye passed away peacefully at home from kidney failure
She was in her mom's arms and her mom had just finished saying a prayer

Pet Parent: Cindy Waldo

Cindy's husband Joe saw Varye on his deathbed a few weeks before he died. He asked Cindy about the dog on his bed, pointing towards the foot of the bed. She asked if he was seeing Jet, his dog from his childhood. He said no, he was seeing Cindy's dog who was going to protect her heart. Joe Waldo died October 22, 2004 from cancer. Varye was born January 22, 2005. Varye has protected Cindy's heart and helped her enjoy life and laugh ever since.

Varye was born to a registered Yorkshire Terrier breeder, and she had all the personality and spunk true to a Yorkie. She was a daredevil and tomboy, yet sassy, sweet, and cute at the same time. She had a sway in her hips when she walked, and the sway was really pronounced when she was happy. She was happy all the time; she enjoyed life. She was beautiful inside and out.

This little girl was determined, strong, and helped Cindy through the struggle of being a young widow. She taught Cindy to relax, play, and enjoy every day. Work could wait. She would tell Cindy to come over, sit on the couch and they'd cuddle in the blanket. Varye would tell Cindy to throw the ball this lasting for hours, Cindy enjoyed watching Varye go out for the long one. Varye would only play with regulation tennis balls. Balls for pets weren't durable enough; she wanted the real thing. She would grab a little bit of the fuzz in how Cindy fondly described as her Elvis lip curl, bring it back and drop it for Cindy, she'd then turn around and run looking over her shoulder even before Cindy could pick it up to throw again. Varye didn't like just one sport. She was fondly called Pele when she was playing soccer with her ball, pushing it with her nose around on the floor or have Cindy put it on the couch so she could push it off. Varye was very social, and thought everyone who came to the house was coming to see her and play with her. She was so adorable that people couldn't resist her. When she wanted blankie time, she usually had to be on Cindy's lap, under the covers with her little nose sticking out.
Varye loved squeaky toys. She especially loved to see how fast she could get the stuffing out to get to the squeaker. Regular toys didn't stand a chance. Even the AKC "durable" toys only lasted a few days. She was true to her breed. She had courage, resilience, tenacity, fearlessness, and was highly intelligent. Yet her most important quality was her heart; she had a heart full of love.


Varye filled the house with life, love, and spirit.

                                 Varye's heart was full of love when meeting the Lord.

Varye is survived by Pet Parent: Cindy Waldo of Omaha, NE.
Proceeded in death by: Pet Parent Joe Waldo, and Paw Sister Natasha

Pet-bituary

 


 

13 Years

DOB: September 11, 2005 - Rescued: November 20, 2014- Adopted: December 7, 2014 - DOD: July 30, 2018

Smokey passed away quietly from complications of a Heart Condition
Pet Parent: Della Stahlnecker

Smokey The Bear a wolf sable grey toy Pomeranian was born September 11, 2005 in a Puppy Mill. Smokey existed there for seven to eight years as a stud male. He spent those years living in a cage no bigger than he was, being used over and over again to breed with other poms for the sole profit of money.

In November 2014 Smokey's little heart grew and he began a new life when he was rescued by a local pet rescue. Smokey saw a vet for the first time in his life where it was determined that his mouth was full of infection from rotting teeth, he also had a hole in the roof of his mouth. Because of this hole he would have to be monitored the rest of his life as he drank water . Drinking water could cause pneumonia and death for the little guy. He was also diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which both of his testicles were retained in his abdomen instead of descending down and out into the scrotum. Smokey underwent anesthesia to be neutered; at this time he stopped breathing and was brought back by life saving measures. Soon Smokey took up residence with his foster mom Taylor Van Otterloo. Here he learned what a true home was supposed to be, but most of all he learned about love.

On Nov. 24th of 2014 Smokey found true love and a forever home with Della. They met at a meet and greet at a local pet food store. Their eyes met... it was love at first sight. The adoption was finalized on Dec.7th of 2014. Smokey blended into his new family immediately with fur brothers and sister and of course a mom and human sister. He ran the house. He was the king in charge. He had a sweet and sparky like personality with a delightful little face, ears that were owl like pointed, eyes that were almost too big for his face and a teeny tiny nose. His voice was adorable with little yip barks. His favorite past time was to cuddle next to his mom on the couch and watch tv. They were the best of cuddle buds. Smokey, although with us for a short time was a mighty, yet superman kind of guy. He fought through the worst and loved like no other.

This week, Smokey came down with an infection in his heart that his little body just couldn't fight anymore. On July 30, 2018 he passed at the vet clinic on his own in his mother's arms with his Dr. at their side. As Della said " It was not his time, he deserved so much more and he will be missed. Smokey you're my perfect precious little angel."

"If Love Could Have Saved You, You Would Have Lived Forever"

Smokey is survived by Pet Parent: Della Stahlnecker, Sister: Sammi Berch, Paw Family Members: Tanner, Henry, Sully, and Peanut all of Omaha, NE. Foster Parent: Taylor Van Otterloo of Omaha, NE,
Proceeded in death by Paw Brothers and Sisters Sunny, Emma and Buffy

Pet-bituary


10 Years

DOB: December 10 , 2006 - DOD: September 8, 2017

Mojo passed away quietly from complications of a Cerebrovascular Accident (Stroke).


Pet Parent: Ken Wood

Mojo was born December 10, 2006 to a litter of five puppies, at 12 weeks old Ken and Mojo locked eyes in a bond that would tie them together for life. Mojo became Ken's Heart Dog, his soul mate... Mojo and Ken would travel the United States doing shows and concerts. Mojo was an incredible stage dog laying up in front of drums, the roar of guitars and being by his dad's side at the microphone. Covering 38 States, Mojo experienced what many four legged friends never do. He even drank beer with Willy Nelson. He was the epitome of COOL. He always made people smile, he owned every bar and stage he walked into and on. Mojo lived life to the fullest, he gave nothing but happiness to this world. Mojo's mission in life was to give and show love to all. He inspired kindness, love, loyalty, honor, respect, trust but most of he gave the gift of friendship.

In 2013, Ken and Mojo became a part of an organization that would change their lives forever; Taysia Blue Siberian Husky and Malamute Rescue of Omaha NE. They both worked together in helping the rescue raise funds at events and fundraising. They fostered and help rehabilitate many husky's after poor living conditions and near death situations. Saving many lives, being part of something that gives so much happiness not only to humans, but to other four legged friends alike has been a dream come true, you could say mission accomplished!

Mojo passed away quietly on September 8, 2017 by his father's side. Today there is an empty space on the floor and an ache in hearts that just won't go away. Mojo touched lives all over and will be sorely missed by everyone that knew him. One thing is to be true, he will always be "Daddy's Boy."

Mojo is preceded in death by his Paw Sister Cody Jo. He is survived by Pet Parent Ken Wood and Paw Brother Cannoli of Omaha, NE

Andy, passed away in his home due to kidney failure.
Pet Parents: Jan and John Sloma

Letter From Mom:

Andy,
From the moment I saw you, you STOLE my heart, that small tug and those legs when you held me tight. Once I held you in my arms you wouldn't let me go. Somehow you knew I was the one. Thank you for that Andy!! It changed our lives forever. I have to admit the first few days were rough. You were not sure if you could trust me. But once you realized that I was here to take care of you, you started to come out of your shell or should I say KENNEL. (Thinking back now I see that I was your ONE TRUE LOVE). You showed me what true love was. Your eyes were fixed on me always. You were always watching me and I loved having those eyes on me. You never left my side. I was the only one that you would ever get close to. I know you loved your Dad, but MOM was the one who had your heart. That really meant a lot to me and I will never forget the strong LOVE we have.
God had truly blessed me with a wonderful friend that I could take anywhere. Just don't leave me!! Or I will come and find you no matter what... That is a love I will never forget.

We have shared so many memories over the years.

My fondest memory is tiding in the care, you in the back seat smiling and looking out the window. After all you been in a mill kennel for 7 yrs. There was a lot of world to see.
 How about the first time you came when I called you (for cheese) of course...lol
  The first time you went to the dog park
   The first time you waged your tail!!
    The first time you volunteered to give me five for a treat.
     Our morning ritual rolling over and getting kisses and hugs
      All the times we went "Puppy Up" to get ready for our day.
       Or all the times you were silly running back and forth to you kennel while we were making food.

Andy, what I loved the most was your sense of humor... You always tried to make me laugh...
You were a good Dog. I know that was important to you. You never wanted me to go out of my way for you. But, I would do anything for you!! Our love was so special. I didn't know that I needed you in my life. My thought was to give you a good home and keep you safe. You have been one of the greatest blessings in my life. You were truly rescued to rescue me.
You have taught me so many things about GOD's LOVE and I know that was your purpose on earth. You fulfilled it well. I would like to say thanks for waiting all that time in horrible conditions to find your ONE TRUE LOVE. I am truly honored to be your MOM.

                                                                                                                         Now Go Andy...

Let your Heavenly Father take you "puppy up"
Enjoy your forever life and know that someday we will meet again and "puppy up"

I Love You Andy!
Your MOM

 

Andy is preceded in death by his Paw Sister Annie Sloma and Paw Brother Cody Sloma. He is survived by Pet Parents Jan and John Sloma , Paw Brothers Luke and Cooper Sloma all of Omaha, NE. Special Friends Suz, Dan Terry and Paw Friend Mindy of Omaha, NE.

Years of Service: December 12, 2007 - January 22, 2016

K-9 Kuba passed at age 10 years from unknown causes peacefully at home

Kuba was part of the Arizona Border Patrol K9 Program with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a critical piece of the Department of Homeland Security. He and the other dogs in the program detect and help seize controlled substances and other contraband, while apprehending persons who attempt the transport of these items.
Kuba, who was born July 28, 2006, was assigned to BPA (Border Patrol Agent) Jorge Fernandez December 12, 2007. As a K9 Border Patrol Agent, he and his handler, confiscated thousands of dollars worth of drugs and arrested several hundred people. Kuba retired on January 22, 2016 living with Jorge, and wife Emily. K-9 Kuba peacefully passed away at his home on Wednesday, December 7, 2016.


In BPA Fernandez own words about home life with K9 Kuba:


The first time I saw Kuba at the National Canine Facility in El Paso, Texas, the first thing that came into my mind was, "That's a big dog." Compared to the other dogs in our class, Kuba was a pretty big dog. But he was what we called a "hammer". He had a good nose and was a hard worker. He knew what he had to do in order to receive his reward and he loved to play tug of war. Outside of work, Kuba knew he was just a dog and acted as such. He loved to play, he especially loved to play catch or keep away. Kuba had a strong pack drive. He welcomed new members to the pack and if it was a dog, he would show that dog that he was the alpha dog. At work he enjoyed being around and working with other people. He loved climbing mountains and walking trails. He loved to chase the rabbits, lizards, and mice that roamed the desert. He once caught a mouse and he pranced around feeling proud of himself. Afterwards he put the mouse down and when he realized it was dead he just walked away.
Off duty, Kuba had a very calm and mellow temperament. He never chased or harmed Biju, my wife's cat, nor did he want any trouble with her. After working for a little over 8 years, Kuba retired from service. He was considered one of the best canines in the canine program and his statistics and work ethics, proved it. Although retired, Kuba hated staying home. Kuba didn't like staying home not being able to hang out with me 10 plus hours of work running around in the desert.

DOB: Unknown - Rescued: January 2, 2015 - DOD: March 31, 2016

Shadow passed at age 9 years from Prostate Cancer

Foster Parent: Angela Ryba

Shadow, known as "The Big Guy" began his life being bounced around from place to place, he found his way into rescue with Taysia Blue Siberian Husky & Malamute Rescue on January 2, 2015 where he joined his first foster parent Matt Gugat. Shadow then made his way to his permanent foster Angela Ryba in January 2015. With time, lots of love, Shadow learned to love and trust that he would never be alone again. Angela cared and loved Shadow as if he were her own and in rescue Shadow was considered Angela's boy.
Shadow, although very independent, he loved children and had a magical way with them. He enjoyed car rides, long walks, treats; food in general and his toys which he cared for as his babies. When it came to his toys he would cuddle them, carry them around the house and sleep with them, never to chew up or play rough with them. Shadow being one of nicest, sweetest dogs with a gentle soul he was not a fan of kisses or hugs.


In June of 2015, Shadow was diagnosed with a terminal form of Prostate Cancer, life expectancy would be under a year. Angela vowing to make Shadow's time left full of comfort and happiness, taking him everywhere with her, including work. Angela and Shadow became inseparable. In late fall of 2015 Shadow became an ambassador dog for Puppy Up Omaha ( a national nonprofit organization that supports research and helps fund comparative oncology in humans and K9's with 2-mile walks in cities all over America.) Shadow and Angela wanted to give a face to cancer, help build awareness and raise funds to help promote research with this horrible disease that affects all of us.

Shadow is survived by Foster Parent: Angela Ryba, Paw Foster Family Member: Cookie, Taysia Blue Siberian Husky & Malamute Rescue Family, and many Rescued Siberian Husky & Malamutes who came before him , those who will follow to find Forever Homes and the Omaha NE Puppy Up Family.

Proceeded in death by the many animals that never made it out of puppy mills, the abused and neglected. Those humans and animals alike that lost their battle with cancer.

DOB: July 15, 2004 - Gotcha: July 22,2007 - Adopted: July 31, 2007 - DOD:  July 22, 2015

Family Member of Lynne & Steven Popp

Niko entered into Hospice Care June 11, 2015 under the care of Paws To Angels Pet Loss Center to live out his days in the comfort and care of his home and his family, he passed away July 22, 2015 from Liver Cancer at home in loving arms of his pet parents , transitioned under the care of Paws To Angels Pet Loss Center 

Niko, a Yorkshire Terrier was born July 15, 2004, adopted by Steve and Lynne Popp of Omaha, NE, with his paw brother  Gizmo, on July 31, 2007, through Westie Rescue of Missouri.

Niko, was the Popp's  faithful, loving boy for 8 years till the day he went to heaven. He was a bundle of energy and loved running in his backyard with his brother Gizmo (Gizzie), later with Buster Brownie and Sophie Rose. He loved to run up and down the fence line barking at anyone going by their house. Niko and Gizzie kept all birds and rabbits out of our yard. After moving  to their new house, Niko and Buster Brownie protected their yard from squirrels, turkeys, all types of birds, rabbits, deer, and the neighbor's cat. Until Niko became ill, he never turned down a walk. He also loved car rides.

Niko was Mommy's boy. He protected, comforted, and took care of her to the end. Even though he was her boy, Niko loved his walks, car rides, and special late night times with Daddy. However, he was assertive and would let Lynne and Steven know what he wanted when they would leave, Niko was always at the laundry room door wagging his tail greeting them when they came home.

Niko greeted everyone who visited and exuberantly let them know he was happy to see them. He was gifted with a few traits, for example, before drinking he would stop and bow (like he was praying) then drink. Another gift he was not trained to do was singing along with Daddy when he was blowing the shofar. When Lynne was holding Niko, just before he left them, his ears perked up when  he heard his last shofar blast.

"He was "Our Little Man" as the blanket  that will be used to cover him in rest says. Niko left an indeligible impression on our hearts. He will be buried next to Gizmo, their spirits are running and playing in heaven now. Rest in peace, dear little boy, we love you, and thank Abba for letting us take care of you, and love you. Thank You Niko for sharing your unconditional love with us." - Lynne & Steven Popp

Niko is survived by Pet Parents: Lynne and Steven Popp,  Paw Family Members: Buster Brownie and Sophie Rose, all of Omaha, NE

Proceeded in death by Paw Sisters: Precious Pearl and Muffin Pearl and Paw Brothers: Gizmo and Squirt

Family Member of Cherie Fry

Doll passed away at home unexpectedly, believed to be from natural causes

Doll, a Papillon was born January 21, 2007 in Beatrice Nebraska. Doll; born Daisy spent the first six years of her life with a family that loved her , because of family circumstances and out of concern for Doll's safety the family chose to re - home her. Doll came into Cherie's life on June 13, 2013 where she began a new life in a safe environment surrounded by love. She joined her new home with paw sisters Mollie, Savanna, and Emmie, paw brother Paws and winged companion Trust and paw foster sister Penny. With lots of activity in the home the first few days were a difficult adjustment for Doll but in no time she started to fit in. Mollie taught her to bark and talk when Cherie arrived home and of course she learned to beg for yummy treats. She enjoyed her one on one time where she liked to crawl around on her tummy and play tug of war with her toys.

Doll was pretty insecure about new places and people but was slowly starting to come out of her shell, she was very devoted to Cherie, following her everywhere and wanted nothing more than please. A tiny little girl who spoke her mind often and at times got even a little bossy with Paws the cat. She knew she was a pretty special little girl, deeply loved and spoiled to say the least. Cherie always referred to her as "my's perfect little pap."

Doll Baby is survived by Pet Parent: Cherie Fry, Special Family Friend: Greg Sexton, Paw Family Members: Emmie Kay, Savanna Lee, Hope Cherie, Paws Kailen, Garfield, and Cleya , Paw Friend: Emmett
all of Omaha, NE.
Proceeded in death by Paw Sisters Mollie May and Penny, Winged Sister Trust

DOB: March 15, 1998 – DOD: February 26, 2014

Mollie passed away at home from Congestive Heart Failure on February 26, 2014

Mollie, a Chihuahua / Pekinese mix was born March 15, 1998 in a liter of 5 puppies. She and her sister Chadz (shades) were gifts to Marian Germain and Janna Fry on Mother’s Day 1998 from Cherie Fry. After Marian’s death two months later Chadz came to live with Cherie. Janna in her grief with the loss of her daughter and health issues could not care for Mollie, she rejoined her sister with Cherie in their home. It was not long and these two wonderful puppies had stolen Cherie’s heart, and became “Her Girls.” “We understood each other and spoke to each other from our hearts.  I was in theirs and they were in mine..”

Mollie was the rock that often held Cherie’s world together, Mollie made her laugh, supported her through the tears. When Mollie’s sister Chadz passed in 2009, Chadz became the inspiration behind Cherie’s mission to provide professional, respectful, and meaningful death care services to the Greater Omaha Community; While Mollie was the one who kept the inspiration going. It was looking in her eyes that said “Mom you’re making a difference and families need you, I need you”  Who would’ve thought an animal with four legs and fur could be a driving force in change, be a life’s mission?

Mollie always carried herself with grace; she was very social, loved people, but seemed at times to have a better then you attitude. She was emotionally strong, and inspirational. She could be stubborn and opinionated. Things were done her way or she wasn’t interested. She liked to go on walks, car rides, play, give kisses and cuddle. She was a talker and never afraid to make herself known. She loved the smell of flowers, especially in the spring when the roses were in bloom in the yard. She liked to often sit as lambs on her front knees. She had many nicknames such as Bear, Aunt Mollie, Cuddle Bear, Mollie May May, Molliebear, Missy Moo

Mollie is survived by Pet Parent: Cherie Fry, Special Family Friend: Greg Sexton, Nieces & Nephew: Emmie Kay, Sigourney May, and Tyke Jake, Family Pet Companions: Savanna Lee, Doll Baby, Paws Kailen, Garfield, & Cleya. All of Omaha, NE
Proceeded in death by sister: Chadz Ann, Pet Parent: Janna Fry, Family Pet Companions: Babe, & Trust

Pet-bituary


17 years

Born: December 11, 1997 - Entered into Rest: February 24, 2014

I got Jack when he was three months old from breeder Nancy Armstrong in Minnesota. I also got Maggie from Nancy; Jack and Maggie had the same mom (Sidney). Nancy was going to keep him and show him, but she found out I had lost my cocker spaniel recently and reluctantly agreed to sell him to me. I only had female dogs before Jack, but she convinced me that her male dogs were even sweeter. Boy, was she right! Jack loved everyone, and everyone loved him. He was so joyful and funny.

Jack was obsessed with food, which I found out the first time I fed him. He practically dove into his bowl and food was flying everywhere. (Nancy forgot to mention that!!) Of course, Jack also loved treats. He even thought crushed ice was a treat and would often race to the refrigerator when someone was getting ice from the ice machine. He loved car rides and would go with me sometimes to run errands. At the First National Bank and Crane Coffee drive-through, he would get treats. Of course, every time we went to ANY drive-through, he EXPECTED to get a treat. The person at the window usually got a huge kick out of seeing Jack with half of his body out of the car window anxiously searching for his treat. When Maggie was with us, there were two golden's with their heads out the window anxiously searching for treats. Hilarious! A couple of weeks ago, I came into the kitchen and there was Jack with an empty dog food bag stuck on his head.

Jack loved to go on walks, which we did often. People driving by would actually stop their cars and tell me what a beautiful dog he was. (Of course, I already knew this but loved the fact that everyone else thought so, too.) Jack loved to chase squirrels and rabbits in the back yard. When he was a puppy, he actually caught a small squirrel. I didn't realize it until I saw the bushy tail hanging out of the side of his mouth. He was so proud!! He ignored my shouts of "no." I remembered that Nancy had taught him the "give" command very well. When I yelled "give," he dropped that squirrel and it hobbled away.

Jack absolutely LOVED squeaky toys. He was rarely without a toy or a ball in his mouth. I laughed every time he would prance around the house going "squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak, squeak." When I bought toys for all three dogs, he would steal them from the other two dogs while they weren't looking or wrestle them away from them. He would lay down far away from them and guard them with his paws. Although he was almost perfect in my eyes, he was very selfish when it came to his toys. He was always excited when I would come home with bags to see what new toys or treats I had bought for him.

Jack loved the agility training classes we took -- especially the treats. For some reason, he was terrified of the tunnel even when we shrunk it down to three feet and I was on the other end coaxing him to go through it. On testing day, I didn't know if he would go through it or not. Fortunately, it was in the middle of the routine and when I yelled "tunnel" he went right through. Although we didn't get 1st place, I was so proud of him.

Our cat, Charlie, thought Jack's fluffy tail was a great toy. Jack would usually take it in stride and just let Charlie play with it.

Our favorite nicknames for him were Jackson, Gorgeous, Sweet Pea, and Sweetness.

The Life and Times of Jack Mohr

The Early Years
We got Jack from a family in LaVista. At the time, the family was exceptionally happy to see the last pup (Jack) leave, and we were so happy to receive him into our home. I spent my summer off from school training Jack. He was a good student, although we always laughed that when school started up, Jack sometimes liked to do number 2 in Matt's bedroom (Matt was already away at college). Matt does not like to hear that story. ;)

Jack was a rambunctious pup. He ran around in the backyard like a Jack rabbit, so we always thought his name was quite appropriate. He liked to run up and down the fence line with a Boxer that lived next door. He had a great time, although I wasn't always sure about the Boxer. When we moved over into our current house, it happened to be a snowy, icy winter and Jack's paws kept getting stuck on the ice. We decided that boots were the answer. After about 5 minutes we were able to get one boot on and start to put on the second boot. However, the first boot came off and we had not gotten the second boot on. We quickly determined that this would not work and that Jack would have to weather the weather.

The Middle Years
Jack got quite ill and we didn't know then if he would make it or not. Age was on his side and with many treatments he made it! We were ecstatic! Not long after, Joe and Patti Samson's (our daughter-in- laws parents) dog, Maggie, became ill very similar to Jack's illness. Maggie went through the same kind of treatments. One evening, Maggie just was not doing well and was up on the couch and would do nothing. We decided to take Jack over to see Maggie. They had played before and we thought this might help Maggie. Just like a good friend, Jack went in to see Maggie, and before we knew it, Maggie got off the couch and started to run around with Jack. Maggie also recovered fully and Patti always gave all the credit to Jack!!

The Late Years
Jack loved to be outdoors, take walks (his heart was in great condition at the time of his death), relax in the shade under our locust tree, see the kids in the neighborhood, and just plain enjoy life! Jack greeted me each evening at the door, always so happy to see me! There are so many stories about our Jackie Boy that I do need to write a book about him. He loved Tom and me with the greatest love, and taught us all about love. Our sons Matt and Mark will miss Jack, too. They loved him and Jack loved them! When Matt and Mark took care of Jack for us in the early years, they liked to tease that they were going to send Jack to Boot Camp! I always told them no way!

Jack was very sick over this last week-end and we had to let him go. We could not have him in pain or discomfort one more day. Tom and I were with him until his last breath. Thank you Dear God for giving us our Jackie!

Jack is survived by:
Pet Parents Kathleen & Tom Mohr , Omaha NE, Pet Sibling: Pinky, Omaha NE
