Brisbane of Benicia 2002-2012. Our chocolate labrador Brizzy was our wonderful companion for nearly ten years. She hiked, ran, swam and played with us. She gave birth to a litter of 9 puppies that have brought endless joy to eight other families. Her spirit lives on in Dory, the puppy we kept, now nearly 8 years old. We'll miss you Brizzy but we know you were ready to go.

was not only a great family pet but we considered him a beloved
many of you know, he suffered from bouts of seizures over the
past several months and was diagnosed as having
canine epilepsy. Aft his very first series of cluster seizures
we had been committed to treating him to prevent any further seizures.
Watching him go through one seizure was a very scary experience.
Unfortunately, Corbit usually went through several seizures, five
or six over the course of a couple of hours. He was hospitalized
for a time at UC Davis where we had a very thorough work-up done
and a treatment plan established.
were confident that we could control the seizures through a regimen
of medication. While he still had a cluster of seizures, when
he did have them, they became less frequent, usually three weeks
would pass between the clusters of five and six at a time; but
this past Thursday and through the weekend he suffered several
serious seizures. I lost count but guesstimate that he had at
least 10 to 12 seizures over the course of the weekend. It took
a terrible toll upon him. We had to make the decision to say goodbye
to him last evening and his passing was peaceful with both Richard
and myself by his side.We
will miss him greatly. Richard and Corbit have been so very close
since we rescued him, and I am very fortunate to have had him
in my life. Through all of our training together and time spent
with him, he's been a great dog and a great friend as well.

I very much enjoyed helping you with Corbit. You did a remarkable
job, with this rescue German Shepard, and all your hard work paid
off. I will always look back fondly, Brad, when we reached the
point where you could let Corbit off leash, and you also know
he was great with other dogs. The smile on your face was priceless! It
is hard to lose a great dog, but to never have had this gift, would
make life less sweet.

is with so much sadness that I write this. Our sweet lovey dog Lewis
went to heaven last night. It was so sudden and unexpected, we are
all just shaken up. He had been coughing a bit this last week and
I had an appointment with the vet for today. But yesterday he seemed
fine; we took a walk, played frisbee in the backyard as usual, he
was eating, everything seemed ok. But after the children went to
bed and Fred got home, we were relaxing in the family room where
he was lying on the floor near us when he just moaned and became
unresponsive. He did not respond to our efforts to revive him. We
are astounded and totally crushed. He was only 3 1/2 years
old and in perfect health! The emergency vet said that he had
probably either had a stroke or a heart attack, though there was
no evidence of heart disease at all when they examined him. In
fact, they said he was in great shape and was well taken care of.
We are so shocked and so sad to have lost our beloved Lewis.
this be a reminder to you all to be loving to each other and your
pets every single day.
Attached is a picture that seems to show how loving and gentle he
was, especially with Will and Ruby. It was taken a while ago,
but is one of my favorites.

owners, Deborah and Chris, loved them very much and both dogs hold
a special place in my heart.
dogs were outgoing, funny, loving and well behaved. Where ever they
went people would always comment and admire these beautiful dogs.
The Schipperkee is not a well known breed and both Scout and Gretchen
were ambassadors for the breed.
is always a pleasure and a privilege to have
Deborah and Chris entrust their beloved dogs with me.
Holly was a very sweet dog, who always wanted to please you. Her favorite thing she liked to do was sit in the swing seat with my Mom, getting petted and loved! I will really miss Holly, but feel life was sweeter for all, having known her.
I had the pleasure and honor of having Pam and Sabre in class; both of them worked to earn his AKC Companion Title. I loved the bond and trust that they had for each other and know that Sabre was sent to her to help her through a rough time in her life. The ultimate example of unconditional love, forgiveness and a wonderful partnership. For anyone to have this experience in life is truly blessed.
We will miss you Sabre, but I know you are now chasing my Saber where all great dogs go - Heaven.
