Skye
1/17/2004 - 6/14/2019In loving memory of our beloved Skye Girl
2004-June 14, 2019

Where do I start... you came into our life damaged and sad, we worked hard to give you a wonderful life, the life you should have always had. You were my first doggy and you made life so much better. You came out of your shell after realizing you were with a loving family, you jumped on everyone and pulled on that leash! You stole daddy's sandwich off of the table, and made us laugh so hard when you were a silly girl. A natural born herder, you would herd everyone that came into the house with your big fluffy butt! You loved your car rides and even took a girls trip to Door County. You were the most amazing girl in the world! You taught us so much throughout your long life. When we brought Norman home you were not happy, you bit his little nose so hard I thought you killed him, but you grew to love him and he loves you so much. I have taken special care of you for two years as age got the better of you, I don't know what to do now. I helped you up and down the stairs to go potty, took you for special treatments, gave you your oil and pills every day, and it taught me even more. I feel blessed to have been able to do that for you. Your daddy and I struggled with letting you go, but you needed to be free of your failing body. We will always think of you and talk about you, you will always be with us and now you can walk on your own, run, play and enjoy your new life in heaven.

Love,
Mommy, Daddy and Norman
And everyone that met you and fell in love with you.

I know your photogenic Skye will be missed dearly, My thoughts are with you! <3Nae Lap of Love - June 22, 2019
Oh Skye baby. It’s 2am and a week later. It’s still not any easier not hearing you flop around all night. Its like I’m waiting for you to walk around the coffee table 8 times before you are ready to plop down next to me. Momma picked you up today and I hope you are happy to be home. We chose an urn that is beautiful and has birds on it. May you rest in eternal peace and run free in the fields in the sky. We love and miss you momma. Take care. And rest easy.Dan Slagle - June 22, 2019

I never met Skye, but have seen lots of video's and pictures over the past few years, and I know she was your paw child. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Rest peacefully Skye.Judi Kortens - June 17, 2019
