Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! I kept telling my husband I wanted a corgi and he kept saying maybe for my birthday. 11 days before my birthday I went outside at 11 pm and saw something at the end of our driveway and called to it. She came running to me. She was very skinny and dirty but I took her in and fell completely in love with her. I feel like she was a gift from God!She's #107959

What a super cold day we are having. When Mom went to the gym this morning it was only 16 degrees. Needless to say, she was not happy. Mom did get the living room cleaned and put out a few Easter decorations. Good job Mom. Of course I was supervising from my cloud. Have a fun Sunday. Left you a vote. Kisses, Angel Shotgun

Bella - Thank you so much for DOTD!

Bella - Thank you so much for DOTD! Oh Sammy, your poor Dad has been through so much! I hope that he is able to come home soon. We don't have any tomato seeds to start this year, last year was sooo hot that we only got a couple of tomatoes from our plants. We are skipping this year because it is supposed to be just as hot is not hotter than last year (it's still only March and it's going to be 93 today!!) Hope your Nice Mom gets lots of yummy tomatoes from her plants. Love and hugs ♥Bella

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! Melian 141414 __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It's still very hard for me to write about Melian. She was the most beautiful dog that ever graced the earth. Her beauty was only matched by her sweet and gentle nature. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The same night that my first dog, Tiny, was dying from a severe stroke, Melian was still born and was fighting for her life. She was revived and turned out to be the bravest, most mischievous, and exquisite of her litter. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I went and picked her up at 9 weeks of old. She had so much personality packed into that tiny body. It was a 5 hour drive. She wasn't happy and howled until she finally fell asleep about half way through. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Training salukis is not easy. They are a very independent breed and Melian was no exception. She was stubborn and it took several months before she truly respected me. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Once our bond developed though we were inseparable and she was such a good girl. I could trust her to run free on the roads, out on our property, and out in the wilderness. She would always come to my call. Not because she had to but because she wanted to. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ She loved me as much as I loved her. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ One day when she was just 4 years old, that all ended too suddenly. A loose dog attacked her and in her panic to escape she ran into a fence and broke her neck. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ It is hard for me to escape the image in my mind of her lying in the snow, not moving. And hearing the sound of the fence… __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I miss Melian so much. I knew I'd have tears streaming by the time I got to the end of this. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ My only consolation is that, short as her life was, she lived life to the fullest and I never let a day go by that I didn't appreciate her. Kiss your dogs every day!

Mom is sitting here on the couch looking out the window and "rats" there is snow on our neighbor's roof. Low tonight is in the teens too. Mr. Winter just doesn't want to leave. Does not look like it's going to be a very nice weekend. But at least Mom will be home and she does need to get the house ready for Easter. bol! Leaving you a vote. Kisses, Angel Shotgun

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! Lucky 3/6/2000 - 7/26/2014 - On July 26th around 2:30am Lucky passed away. Lucky's health had been declining in the 2 months after having a dental done. She had an enlarged heart, was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and 2 weeks before she passed away, I was told she was in early kidney failure. It hurts not seeing her around, as she was a big part of the Pack, as all of them actually is. She was so energetic and her age didn't slow her down, she would play and run as if she was still a pup. It is quiet now without her presence here, and so hard as Lucky was a big part of my heart. she was the best dog I could have ever asked for. Lucky was a very loving and kind natured dog. She, herself had a big heart for a little dog. She would loved anyone, because that is the kinda dog she was. she never had a mean bone in her body. She will be missed terribly as there will never be another dog like her. I miss my little girl so much. Your not suffering anymore and you can run and play like you use to. I will always remember the love you have given to me over the past several years. It wont' be the same without you here with me. I love you Lucky! RIP girl, until we are together again ... ********* A neighbor of mine, since moved, had got her from a friend of his, she had really no one to play with so she took up with my 3 dogs at the time. He decided he didn't want her anymore so he asked if we would take her, and of course we said, "Yes"! And we've had her ever since. She had been passed down from who knows how many people, and now she is with us. I don't know how old she actually is, so I gave an estimation, of the month that we got her, and her age is between what the vet and I estimated how old she could be.Her page is #37934.

Probably more nutritious too. Well our sunny days are over. Today was cloudy and rained most of the day. Now tomorrow we might get snow flurries. Mom's not happy. All she wants is weather in the 50's or 60's. I guess she's not going to get her wish. bol! Leaving you a vote. kisses, Angel Shotgun

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! I adopted Rico from the Annapolis, Maryland SPCA shelter. As he got older he developed several serious health problems which included a heart murmur, pancreatitus & Cushing's Disease. He crossed over the Rainbow Bridge August 4, 2007 "They say memories are golden well maybe that is true. I never wanted memories I only wanted you. In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill." He was my little boy & it broke my heart when he died. One of most classic moments of Thirties cinema was the dying line of Caesar Enrico "Rico" Bandello in the movie Little Caesar when he said "Mother of Mercy, is this the end of Rico?" I like to think not. I prefer to think that his antics live on in the memory of his many Dog Channel friends.He's page #5284.

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! We were living in Cleveland and my dad worked in downtown Cleveland. On his lunch break he divided to go to the Old Arcade and check out the pet shop were I was. The pet shop was closing and I was the last puppy there. It was love at first sight for dad and me! He bought me right in the spot! Had to wait for dad to get off of work and then he put me in a box and snuck me on the Rapid. The Rapid is kinda like a train but it runs on electricity. Dad brought me home and presented me to mom. Mom fell madly in love with me! He he he he! I lived with them both for 12 wonderful year and had many adventures with them both. I went to my furever sleep September 16th, 2008. I passed peacefully in the arms of my mom. I wait for them both and I wait patiently just outside the gates of the Rainbow Bridge! I know that someday we will be reunited. Oh what a glorious day that will be! I'm # 258211

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! Remembering My Dog,...... I will remember always this very special one who filled moments of my life with happiness and fun. A special dog, faithful friend who will always be a part of the memories I hold dear, forever in my heart. Tasha died this morning 5/8/07 she never woke from the surgery, she died very peaceful. Tasha was a very sweet and loving dog, she loved kids and cats and everyone. Tasha had cancer and had a large tumor on her tail, the vets were unsure rather to remove some of the tumor in hopes of easing her pain or removing her tail if the tumor was all contain, which it was, so they removed her tail, and she handled the procedure well, but the gas they used was too much on her whole system, in the exam they discovered she had a tumor in her mouth, it was a blessing she just drifted off to sleep, rather than suffer any longer.Tasha is # 1407

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! My mom and dad got married on August 20th, 1994. They spent there honeymoon up in Canada. They went to a pet shop just to look and mom saw me and it was love at first site! They carried me out of the pet store. I walked right into moms heart and found my furever home. I lived with them for 12 wonderful years until I crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. I developed breast cancer after my second litter of pups was born. Had tumor removed but it came back 6 years later. They had to have me put to sleep at the age of 12. I passed peacefully in the arms of my daddy! Date of Rainbow Crossing : February 19th 2007 Even though I am gone I am loved and missed dearly. Until we meet again I will wait for you both! I ask my Master and Mistress to remember me always, but not to grieve for me to long. In my life I have tried to be a comfort to them in time of sorrow, and a reason for added joy in their happiness. It is painful for me to think that even in death I should cause them pain. No matter how deep my sleep I shall hear you, and not all the power of death can keep my spirit from wagging a grateful tail!I lived on earth 5/25/1994 to 2/19/2007 & my page is 228034

Though she has left us to go over the Bridge, she is very much still surrounding us each day, and every day. The day she passed over, a few hours later, she scratch at the back door for us to let her in, just as she had always done. She has left us many signs that she is very much part of our lives. A rainbow one rainy day with a cloud nearby in the shape of her head looking down on us. She is our little sister who still takes care of us. We love her, and miss her every day! We love you!Minnie is Sadie's sister, Sadie is #267388

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! Angel Pongo’s info: His page number is 105429 and he joined the DC on 10/08/2008. He has won 3 DOTD’s, 05/28/2009, 07/16/2012, 07/17/2013; and 1 ADOTD, 07/26/2014. He turned 16 years old on July 16, 2014, and passed away exactly one week later at home on July 23rd. He lived with us from birth, as I owned his Mom, Angel; and my husband owned his Dad, Gizmo. Always friendly and outgoing, he got along well with other animals. On the DC, he belonged to the Shih Tzu Club, DC Peace Team, and the Small Dog Club. He and I were extremely close, and until he got ill last July, he was my guardian, who kept an eye on me and let my husband and I know when I needed assistance because of my health problems. His urn now rests in my bedroom, along with his parents’ urns. There will never be another dog like my beloved Pongo.

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! Cinnamon's page number is 54165. She's been on DC since January 2008 and has been DOTD 4 times. She was the first dog in our family. We'd always had cats before, and she grew up around cats. She was only a couple years old when our one cat, Angel Gizmo, crossed the Rainbow Bridge at the age of 19. Cinnamon was a year old when her kitty brother Shadow joined the family. They got along great together. Cinnamon was known to "call" Shadow down by barking at him when he'd jump on the dining room table when he wasn't supposed to. Cinnamon was the sweetest girl who loved to go for walks, go for car rides, and chase squirrels, as well as being near her favorite humans. She was an attention hog who loved meeting new people and new dogs. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge on February 21, 2014 from cancer (a tumor we knew nothing about until it was too late). Having her was a learning experience, but a happy one. We miss her always greeting us at the front door with a toy in her mouth and her tail wagging, ready to go for a walk. We miss her peeking out the window when our car pulls up in the driveway. We miss her laying in our lap or next to us on the couch. We miss her happy-go-lucky personality. We miss her, and always will.

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! I found my Mom and Dad after I ran away from my first home. I had recently had puppies, I think I was a breeder dog. I had been hit by a car, not too much damage, just road burn and a lost toenail, but it was very cold in Memphis, Tn that December day and I knew if I wanted to live I would need to find a "dog lover" to let me inside so I didn't freeze to death. I sniffed out a house with other dogs (lucky for my keen sense of smell), hoping that there was room for one more. Sure enough Mom found me covered by the leaves in her flower garden. It was December 1999 and I had found my new "dog house", there was Jingles (11/89 - 3/06) and Snuggles (3/84 - 12/00) to welcome me. I weighed only 3 lbs and every bone in my body was showing, I went to the vet and he said I would be alright with a little TLC and some antibiotics. Mom and Dad had me spayed so no more puppies thank goodness! I move to Spring Hill, Florida in March of 2005 and my new brother Buddy came to live with us in May of 2006.Her page is 31897

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! Mar 17 at 9:41 PM I was kenneling my cats, birds, and guinea pig, when I saw this big boy smiling. I just fell in love with him instantly. I mean look at that face! It was the first time that I didn't have a dog in my life. I told the woman how wonderful I thought he was, and she told me that he had just arrived THAT day to be fostered. And that he was only in that room waiting for his to be done. Some things are just meant to be. She asked if I wanted to take him outside. As soon as we got out, he rolled over, and I was rubbing his belly. I told her that day, I wanted to adopt him. When it's right you just know it. I came home from vacation, and he came home with me. He was the sweetest, most wonderful soul and brought so much happiness into my life.

Guardian Angels/Please vote us March DOTM/Honoring Angel Smoke!! Ozzy,#9079 was my 50th birthday present. I found him at a breeder outside of Medford Oregon. I already had two females and wanted a male. He was so cute and tiny I fell in Love at first sight. We took him home and he became very sick from leaving his mother. I took him back to the breeder and picked him up 10 days later. He was fine to go with us then. He's been my baby boy ever since.Aug.12th,2014 my sweet baby boy went over the rainbow bridge. Our hearts are broken. He was the first of the group to join DC over 8 years ago. We miss you so much my little man.
