In Memory of Marvin
December 23, 2014

Marvin was rescued from a Northeast Texas kill shelter in March of 2013 in horrible condition.  His skin, ears and teeth were severely infected. He had a heart murmur and his spirit seemed broken. He was already a senior and had very little chance of finding an adopter considering his age and health issues. We couldn’t turn our backs on him even though we suspected that he may never be healthy enough to be chosen by an adoptive family. Marvin’s visits to the rescue vet revealed not only neglect but abuse as well. Marvin had several bruises on his little body and a BB embedded in his side. He had long scars across his back. He was extremely hand shy and thought any touch would result in pain. Marvin’s foster parents never gave up on him and worked hard to show him that people could be kind. He learned about soft blankets fresh from the dryer, rotisserie chicken from Costco and canned Merrick Thanksgiving Day Dinner. He loved sunning himself on the deck and sitting by his foster parents on the couch. While Marvin was finally enjoying life his congestive heart failure continued to progress despite treatment. He passed away peacefully in his foster home two days before Christmas of 2014.  

Marvin is greatly missed by his foster parents. There will never be another Marvin. You mattered and you were loved. Rest in peace sweet boy.

In Memory Of Romeo
2002 - 11/10/2012 

In 2002, Romeo was a 9 month old puppy when he was dumped at a shelter. The reason?  His owners had just returned from a month long vacation in Hawaii and were furious over their high boarding bill.  We adopted this precious loving soul and had 10 wonderful years of his love.  Romeo is the reason we got involved in dachshund rescue.  We adopted 7 more dachshunds over the years, fostered for a while, and we will be life long supporters of dachshund rescue.  In July of this year, Romeo was diagnosed with a severe heart condition.  On Nov. 10th, Romeo joined his beloved Dr. Herbert Y. Wong in heaven.  Romeo and Herbert were inseparable during Herbert's 2 year courageous battle with cancer.  Rest in peace our precious little Romeo.  We will always love you!

In Memory Of Rusty
August 2012

Sometimes our time together is far too brief. That's the way it was with Rusty. At fifteen years old, Rusty was rescued from the Dallas shelter with severe untreated heartworm. Despite doing what we could, there was no way to cure the damage his infestation had caused. Sadly, Rusty lost the battle and succumbed to his condition shortly after he was rescued. Rusty was a sweet boy who always wagged and cuddled, and he had a wonderful love of life. Special thanks to Rusty's adopter, who opened his heart and household to Rusty knowing his time was limited. Rusty was dumped at the shelter by his previous owner because "he wouldn't play anymore". Our best to Rusty, who can now play as much as he wants and doesn't have to worry about people neglecting him ever again. Our love goes with him!

Rich & Kim Hoffman


In Memory Of Penny
2000 - July, 2012

Penelope was with us for almost eleven years of her life. She was always hungry, always wagging, always loud, and always loving to every person she met. Somewhere Penny is still howling to let everone know it's time for dinner; rest in peace, sweet Penny.

In Memory Of Rooby Hodges
2/14/99 - 4/27/12
Rooby was a huge part of our life and so very unique. She was 10 lbs of fearlessness packed into that little body and we have so many wonderful memories. She's the reason we became involved in dachshund rescue & countless lives have been saved as a result.
If Love could have saved you, you never would have gone.
We love you Rooby and will never forget you.

In Memory Of Hercules Parsons
1/1999 - 3/2006

Hercules was our very first furkid. We lost him much too early at only age 7. Diagnosed with an inoperable spinal tumor, our Hercules bravely carried on for another 12 months. We set him up with a mobile wheel chair so he could continue to enjoy walks in the park with his brother Caesar. When the time came to help him cross the Rainbow Bridge, we held him in our arms and with Caesar there too, we said ‘Good-bye’. Rest in Peace our brave little Hercules. You gave us much joy and taught us how to live with enthusiasm, even in the shadow of disability.
