11/18/2006 - 2/26/2021Red was our angel, the best dog we could have asked for. She was there for many of the key moments in our life. I remember dancing with her when my husband and I got engaged. We opened wedding gifts with her in the living room. When we moved, she claimed a spot in the front room in front of the window so she could keep an eye on things. She spent time with me after my thyroid cancer surgery, snuggling next to me on the bed or the couch as I laid there and watched movies. She was the decision maker when it came to bringing another dog into the home - approving of our other dog Stockton after she had the chance to chase him around a field for a bit. She accompanied me to my grandparents house after my grandmother passed away, accidentally running across the pool cover and dressing up in silly bathrobes, keeping us laughing during an otherwise difficult time. She let me hug her and bury my face into her fur when I’d cry over the loss of my mom.

She welcomed visitors with a smile, sniffs and kisses. She hung out during parties, typically sitting in the middle of the crowd. She was feisty and protected me always, staying up with me late at night watching movies after my husband would go to bed. She loved us (and Stockton) deeply, and we felt it. She was the best dog, so full of personality, and she brought so much to our lives over these last 10 years.

I can’t imagine a life without her in it, and words can’t adequately express how much I will miss her. A piece of my heart will always be reserved for Red, and I look forward to the day I can love on her again.

We love you, Red. Thank you for loving us always and unconditionally. ❤

Such a gorgeous girl! I loved looking at the old pictures of her. She was such a lucky girl to have an incredibly loving family.Cassi Huelin - March 6, 2021
