ChaHar's Lil Strawberry Whine


January 17, 2000 - December 25, 2001



Chloe came into our lives... and left on the most joyous holiday of the year. She was raised into heaven upon the loving
heart she came onto this earth with. We are very devestated by this loss and will take much time to heal. Chloe will be
dearly missed and many tears will be shed over her not being with us. Physically she will be gone.. but spiritually she is
running happy and carefree around our feet and in our minds. Her sudden death shocked us beyond belief and the
grief associated with that loss will be with us forever. Each Christmas we will be honoring Chloe, as she left us on this one
day of celebrated life so that we may celebrate her life and how much love we had for her.

Christmas without our Dog

The tree is all trimmed.
The gifts are all wrapped.
The hymns are all sung,
Ant the travel plans mapped.
And still there's a sadness
That lies in our heart,
For a dog that was lost
And a love now apart.
A stocking is missing,
With toys and a treat.
A lap is now empty,
A space at our feet.
Yet remember this season
God's small gift to you,
Wonderful memories
To treasure life through.

AKC Ch. Jubilee's Riding The Dream

winnie3 winnie 4

Winnie was the love of Samantha's life... a constant companion and her best friend.
They went everywhere together and you could not find one without the other.
The decision to put Winnie to sleep to end her suffering was the hardest
decision Samantha has had to make in all her years; it devastated her beyond words.
The bond between the two is strong and even in death Samantha feels Winnie by
her side. Winnie was the best thing that could have ever happened to Samantha
and life without her will never be the same. The heart ache over this great loss
is felt and will no doubt not be healed until they are reunited once again at
the Rainbow Bridge.

This poem still brings tears to Samantha's eyes when she reads it and thinks of Winnie.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say
But first of all, to let you know that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from the Rainbow Bridge. Here I dwell with God above
Here there is no more tears of sadness; there is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight
Remember that I am with you every morning noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family they'll be here later on.
I need you badly, you are part of My plan
There's so much we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do
And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you,
And when you lie in bed at night the days chores put to flight,
God and I are close to you in the middle of the night.
When you think of life on earth and all those loving years
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain
Remember there could be no flowers, unless there could be some rain
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth in over
Now, more than ever before my life to you is closer.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too
That as you give the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain
Then you can say to God at night and "my day was not in vain."
And now I am contented that my life was worth while,
Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
Lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go.
When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go, from your body to be free,
Remember you re not going. You re coming here to me.

ASCA/AKC Ch. Shadowfax Smooth Operator


July 1, 1992 - March 16, 2006





Thirteen years will never seem like enough life to live, but when it comes to
our precious ones that is all we are granted. KC was my life and when
I made the choice to take his pain away and endure my own; it was the hardest
decision I have ever made. He was my best friend, my snuggle muffin. KC went
everywhere I went and a part of me died with him on that day. I held him till
the end and he went to the Rainbow Bridge to be a pup again. He was that once
in a life time dog, my heart dog. Fate brought him into my life by chance
because someone up there knew I needed him as much as he needed me. I will
never forget the first day I saw his face. The gentle look in his eyes. We went through so
much together, even now I sit here with tears because I never thought of a life without him.
I love you Doodles. You taught me the meaning of my life and I will never
forget you. Even though angels took you from my sight, you'll never be gone
from my heart.

Meet me halfway Across the sky
Out where the world belongs to only you and I
Meet me halfway Across the sky
Make this a new beginning of another life.


Good Bye Poem

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear.
"Its me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here"
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea.
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore.
I want to take your parcels, I wished I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house as you fumbled for the key,
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me".
You looked so very tired and then you sank into a chair,
I tried so hard to let you know that I was standing there.
Its possible for me to be so near you everyday,
to say to you with certainty "I never went away".
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew
That in the stillness of that evening I was very close to you.
The day is over.... I smile and watch you yawning and say,
"Good Night, Sweet Dreams, God Bless, I'll see you in the morning".
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide
I'll rush to greet you and well stand together side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there's much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out; then come home and be with me.


BISS AKC Ch. Em's Earth Shaker


September 3, 1997 - September 24, 2007


shaker 3shaker 4

Shaker was the begining of something beautiful for our kennel. He came to us for a visit and
we fell instantly in love. After much pleading he finally came to be with us for good. His boysterous
spirit and loving nature could not be denied. I can still hear him barking when it comes time for dinner. His
antics were one of a kind. He will be missed. His legacy of starting this kennel will always been seen in
his son Art, and in his grandchildren. His smile is placed forever on our hearts.

Before I grow too frail and weak,
And all that's left is peace in sleep,
I know you'll do what must be done,
To end this fight that can't be won.
I don't fear death as humans do,
So let me try to comfort you,
Come, let us take a quiet stroll,
And share some quietness soul to soul.
No need for words 'twixt you and I,
No need to say a last good-bye,
We've grown so close in mind and heart,
It seems so cruel that we must part.
Be sure I sense the pain you'll feel,
Without me walking at your heel,
The days will feel full of despair,
Your "Sunshine" simply won't be there.
In time the pain will slowly wane,
You'll think of me and smile again,
You'll speak with love and pride again,
Your extra special Mini Pin.
Now take me where my needs they'll tend,
And stay there with me till the end,
Hold me close with soft good-byes,
'Till life's bright light has left my eyes.
The final sound I need to hear,
Is your soft voice upon my ear.
Your loving face will fade and dim,
As the rush of heaven closes in.


Mainely's Black Beauty


July 16, 1994 - Feb 2008



I went to see this puppy. She lite up my world the moment I saw her. It was the story book
"Girl and her dog." She was my constant companion til she could no longer be. We went through
many firsts together. She taught me the unconditional love that comes from only a dog. So
many memories and the beginning of a love for Australian Shepherds I never knew would take
me to where I am. I love you Kira Bums and miss you so much. You took a peice of me the day you
crossed over the rainbow bridge. Keep KC company and look after him for me til I get there to be
with you both.

I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on like
I wish I could talk to you for awhile
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by
And it's true that you've reached a better place
Still I'd give the world to see your face
And I'm right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say bye bye


I Only Wanted You

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

AKC/CKC Ch. ChaHar's Candle In The Wind


April 30, 2004 - October 31, 2009



Dawn's passing was something we never thought would happen. She lived with us for over
5 years and had a personality all her own. Sold to a Show Breeder in Nova Scotia, Canada,
she got loose when she arrived at her new owner. After 60 days and no sight of her, we can
only assume the worst has happened. She was seen once on the tenth day, but the up coming
colder weather was against her and we knew that time was running out. We still have hope
that someone found her and did not report finding a lost dog, but if that is not the case,
then Dawn would have sucome to the bitter cold of the Canadian winter. She will
always be remembered and in our hearts.

"In the Candle's Glow"

Warm light coming from far below,
Twinkling, sparkling is the candle's glow.
All is well up on the ridge,
The place we know as Rainbow Bridge.
Furbabies sleeping in heaven's light,
Tended by candles in the night.
Peaceful dreams be theirs to keep,
As they slumber in this night so deep.
Hearts on earth that miss them so,
Take comfort in the candle's glow.
Watching for them in skies above,
Bound eternally by a cord of love.

BISS AKC/CKC Ch. ChaHar's Mighty Excalabur


Feb 18, 2001 - Nov 8, 2011

art3 art


Art was a special part of ChaHars. He was the first in many ways for all of us.
He was the first min pin born with the ChaHar's name. He was our first bred by champion,
our first dual champion, and our first bred by Best in Specialty Show winner. He also
owned a peice of our heart that no other dog will. His bark and bounce can still be heard. He
was everything wonderful about his dam and sire. We miss you Artie Man!

Special Friend

I lost a special friend today, the kind you can't replace, 
and looking at his empty bed I still can see his face.

I see the endless energy, the sparkling puppy eyes,  
Not the tired, fragile friend I had to bid goodbye.

I know he's in a special place our Lord has for such friends,  
Where meadows & flowers help make them strong and whole again.

I remember how he'd run to me to play his favorite puppy game,  
And how his ears would perk right up when he heard me call his name.

But as those precious years went by And we both aged and grew,  
I'd find him often slowing down, But-we had so much to do.

He did his guard dog duty well Each time the doorbell rang,  
Strangers surely couldn't see My gentle friend--barking all the time..

I've noticed in the recent times his ears were not as sharp,  
Where is that running ball of fur, The years have shown their mark.

He started sleeping next to me  Was this his special clue,  
Because he felt the end was near I only wish I knew.

My Artie was a special dog I know he gave his best,  
But as I looked deep into his eyes I knew it was time, for him to rest.

It will truely be a struggle I don't know how I'll face each day,  
I have to let him go--I know, But in my heart he'll stay.

This special place our Lord has made, Good Health wait for him there,  
So with my very special friend, I'm sending all my prayers.

I know he's watching over me, he'll be with me when I cry,  
So with one more kiss on his beloved head, I told my Little Artie Man goodbye.

Jamelins Sousas Winning Hit


March 10, 2000- Nov 28, 2012





Austin came to us when he was just 11 weeks old. He came out of the crate like
he had lived here all his life. Right from the beginning he had a personality all his own. Always knew when
we were going to a show and was so excited to go. He always was looking for attention when Samantha
and Stephanie came over, whining to say, pick me up and pay attention to me. He always was excited to see KC
and Shyla, our aussies, when they came over to visit, his tail wagging like crazy. He will truly be missed. His legacy will
live on through his son Marshall, BPISS AKC/CKC Ch. Renniks Storm Tracker, Best puppy in show at the
Canadian Miniature Pinscher Nationals. And Through his grandson Butler; CKC Ch. Dazzleme The Butler V
Dogriver, the #5 Miniature Pinscher in Canada for 2010!!

Good-Bye Austin Man, You will
always be in our hearts and thoughts.


Weep Not For Me

Weep not for me though I am gone
Into the gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed.
For all those many Years.
There is no pain, I suffer not
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.
