Poem to Dog

You would walk with me, sit with me, listen to me.You were content to just be with me, little old me.It seemed like I was everything in your world, and more than enough. And now there is a space, an absence where you use to be.It is dim where you once were so bright.The air… [Read More]

Mac Memorial

Posted on by Lynn Henderson

In Memory of Mac

Mac lived for his family and loved adventure. As the first addition to our family, he came into our lives as a cautious, shy little pup who quickly grew into a loving, confident, energetic, little schnauzer. One of his favourite games was Hide and Seek with his toys. You could call out for any one of his toys by name, he would seek them out and proudly bring them to you, no matter how tricky the hiding spot. He loved water, and would even jump into the tub when he felt it was time he needed a bath. He was always up for anything, the first out the front door and into the car before the kids even had a chance to get their shoes on, ready for the next family adventure. He loved going on road trips with us and was the happiest when we were all together. At night, after the kids had fallen asleep, Mac would do his rounds, checking up on them making sure they were safe before curling up in his own bed and going to sleep. On December 3, 2013, we lost our dear pet to diabetes. He was with us for 12 wonderful years. He brought our family so much joy he will not be forgotten. Rest in peace Mac.

In Memory of Emma

Posted on September 11, 2013 by Lynn Henderson

Emma was with me through so many life events. So many houses, university. We got through vet school together, and she was with me when I welcomed my baby girl home for the first time. Emma loved affection, and purred louder than any cat I have ever met – her warm, noisy company will be missed in my house. Love You Emma-Lou!

In Memory of Angus

Posted on by Lynn Henderson

Angus was such a sad case when we rescued him. He had been through multiple foster homes and because he was so reserved and timid, he was never the right fit for the families that tried him. When we adopted him, they told us ‘if he doesn’t work out for you, have him put to sleep – we don’t want him back’. Oh what the world would have missed out on, and Oh the love that would have been missed from my life! I have never met a more loyal, kind-hearted soul than we found in this beautiful dog. He never moved in an aggressive way, he never put a foot down without asking first. He will be missed terribly, and will never be forgotten.

Brady Memorial

Posted on April 4, 2011 by Lynn Henderson

Brady had been a badly neglected male Whippet that the Whippet Rescue group managed to take in. We wanted another Whippet to be a buddy for our young dog so we applied to adopt Brady. It was challenging as we have always had puppies and Brady came to us in his 5th year with some baggage. We learned from each other and we just loved him as he was quite the little character. He became a Therapy Dog visiting nursing homes and spreading his love. Both of our dogs became celebrities in the neighbourhood and shouts of ‘Hi Lucky, Hi Brady’ were very common during our walks. Dr. Lynn Henderson and Becky looked after our dogs and when Brady got so sick on an Easter Sunday, Lynn drove from far away to be home to help him pass into another place. It was comforting for us to know that he passed on with loved ones surrounding him in his own home. We miss our Brady but enjoyed the time we had with him and were better for it.
