DREAM Angel Memories

Frankie Friendship


Adopted 12/21/20
Deceased 07/21/21


It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our beloved Frankie Friendship. My wife and I were with him yesterday when he suddenly became ill. We took him to Egret Bay Animal Hospital where they determined he had severe damage to the right side of his heart and had thrown an embolism. After several hours of treatment with no improvement we transferred him over to VCA emergency animal hospital for additional treatment. Frankie fought hard but the vets were unable to get his blood oxygen levels up. He was in our arms when he crossed the Rainbow Bridge to a wonderful new life. Although Frankie was only with us for 8 months it felt like he was with us a lifetime. Words cannot describe how wonderful he was and how much we loved each other.

"Confetti"


Adopted 12/17/13
Deceased 03/26/21


This evening I had to say goodbye to my sweet Confetti girl. My heart is broken but I know she is happy across the rainbow bridge. A big thank you to our staff at LeadER Animal Specialty Hospital. They were truly a comfort to me at such a difficult time. I was a mess, but they held my hand the entire way. 💕

Peanut Prism


Deceased 03/23/21



Pippa Picnic


Adopted 09/20/15
Deceased 03/14/21


I lost Pippa on March 14th. She had back surgery and came out of it great, but she developed an E. coli infection. Antibiotics weren’t helping, and the infection eventually lead to organ problems. We did everything we possibly could, but the vet wasn't able to save her.

Sansa Stark


Adopted 12/30/17
Deceased 03/10/21


On March 10, 2021, I said my final goodbye to Sansa, my Beautiful Angel. I kissed her as she slipped away to a better place. I adopted Sansa on December 30, 2017, ten days after losing Joy a week before Christmas. Joy was my heart, one of my best canine friends ever. I was a total mess - couldn’t eat, cried a lot, was unable to sleep, had difficulty focusing and was seriously distracted in my grief.

Ron convinced me to look on the DREAM site for another dog. I took a half hearted scan at the site, and a little red longhaired female got my attention. Poor baby looked as sad and lost as I felt. Told Ron - this is the one. I went into the adoption with eyes wide open. Sansa was not a young puppy and while I knew we would not spend a lifetime together, we’d make every day count. We worked out the details with Suzanne - she and Dream are awesome!

On December 30, 2017 Ron drove to the foster’s home (a good long way from us) and returned about 9:00 p.m. He handed Sansa to me - I looked into her eyes and told her she was a beautiful girl. She stared back then kissed me with that little tongue that always hung out on the right side of her mouth because she had lost her teeth. It was love at first sight. I patted Sansa and promised I would always love her, I would always take care of her and I would never leave her. I also told her she would never have to worry about a thing, that I would take care of it all. She slept with me, and as long dogs often do, slept horizontally so that I was very often teetering on the edge of the mattress. How could a little 12 pound dog take up so much room?

Sansa was a wonderful, loving, kind, gentle, quiet little dog. Her forgiving, patient nature and sense of inner peace was a wonder to behold. She accepted everything that came her way from fosters and cats to my puppy, Chance. She was exactly what I needed. Sansa gave me purpose and a new appreciation for life in general. She taught me to keep looking forward, hold onto and enjoy my memories and accept whatever life dealt out to me. She rescued me!

I miss her and still wake up in the wee hours and reach out to touch her, making sure she did not get around the pillow barrier I built every night to keep her from falling over the edge of the bed. Then it hits me she is gone. I remind myself how blessed I was to have her companionship and love a little over three years, and smile when I think how she’d come to life at mealtimes, galloping around the kitchen like My Little Pony - so darn cute!

Sansa, I will always love you to the moon, the stars and back. You were truly my Beautiful Angel. If I am so fortunate, I hope to meet you and the rest of the gang at the bridge. Godspeed little girl. Kiss all the others for me. I shall miss you. 😘


Jaeger Yottle


Adopted 09/16/15
Deceased 03/04/21


My sweet Jaeger passed away this morning. He became ill suddenly last night. I took him to the vet first thing this morning. They found that he had a large mass in his abdomen. I am still in shock. There were no signs that he was ill. He was such a good boy, very sweet and funny. He loved to be snuggled and hugged and kissed. I always obliged. He loved me very much. He followed me everywhere. I love him and miss him so much. My heart is broken.

Chachi Cheers
"Mary Tyler Moore"


Adopted 06/27/20
Deceased 02/28/21


We were extremely saddened to hear of Chachi's passing due to anaphylactic shock. Her adopter doesn't know what she got into to cause such a severe allergic reaction. By the time she got her to the vet, they were unable to save her. She was very much loved by her DREAM fosters and adopter. Absolutely heartbreaking.
