6/5/2019 - 10/27/2019On Sunday we said goodbye to our amazing boy Hemi. He was our best friend for 14 years and we are so blessed to have had him in our lives. Of course things didn’t start out so great,. Hemi ,for the first years of his life, ate everything in sight. He ate our Ethan Allen couch, our dining room table and chairs, he ate the molding off the walls, and even pulled up our kitchen floor. He was an adventurous puppy. He protected us from every animal that crossed our yard. He was so kind to bring us all of the big scary animals like squirrels, skunks, birds, opossums, and the occasional field mouse. Hemi was a hunter outside but inside he was the most gentle boy you ever wanted to meet. Hemi had a life partner named JT ,he was our chihuahua (he passed on 4 years ago). They were the best of friends. JT was the boss and Hemi followed him every where. Hemi and JT started our family then we had two boys and 3 nieces. All the kids learned to walk by holding onto Hemi. He loved them so much. He allowed 6 kids to crawl all over him and all he asked was that they shared their snacks or let him clean up their faces. My dear boy Hemi your presence is missed greatly. I still look for you every morning. I never get up off the couch with out looking to see if you are under my feet. I miss hearing your paws steps through the house. We will always think of you with love. Good bye my Hemi bear...Dana FunicelloYonkers, New YorkOctober 31, 2019

I am so very sorry on your loss of sweet Hemi. I love these photos! And I love how he taught all the kids to walk. I could see what a loving home you gave him. You & your family will continue to be in my thoughts.Dr. Liz Hilton - December 4, 2019
