A lot of you have been asking about the wonderful metal dog sculptures we have in the lobby now. We’ve been working on a ‘garden’ vibe for our lobby for a while now, and this trio of metal yard dogs really made a beautiful addition!
We didn’t make a sign in that corner, but we quietly consider it to be a memorial to our dear friend and long-term daycare client Patricia Dietz, who passed away this summer due to complications from cancer.
Trish started bring her dog Dinky Dow nearly seven years ago, when Dawg House first opened. Her close friends Carol and Sandy also started bringing their dog Langston at the same time, because Dinky and Langston do absolutely everything together!
Carol and Sandy brought the dog sculptures to Dawg House and explained to us that they used to be in Trish’s yard, and that she would have liked for us to have them. We’re very pleased to have a little area of our ‘garden’ where we can remember Trish. We’re also so happy for Dinky, who has now become a permanent member of Langston’s family!
Thanks to Trish, a sweet and gentle member of our family pack, who we will miss seeing each week.
I know I’ve skipped several weeks…it was a busy holiday season like it was for everyone. But I’m back and will do my best to contribute to the blog weekly. I wanted to use this space this week–exactly one week … Continue reading
Bloggydog is something we worked on for a while that is about our two dogs, Benjamin and Finnegan, and our adventures around the neighborhood.
Saturday morning, November 13, our amazing and beloved dog Benjamin quite suddenly and unexpectedly died of sudden heart failure. It’s likely that the Valley Fever he had when we adopted him seven years ago caused heart damage, though he never showed any sign.
He was truly the kindest, happiest and most noble King of Dogs.
Your family misses you so much, Ben…
Bernie and his sister Olive came to Dawg House all the time when we first opened, and for the first few years they were here all the time. Their best friend at Dawg House was Brutus the boxer. They moved to St. Louis for a new j0b a little over a year ago, and we’ve missed them a lot!!
In January, Bernie’s cancer suddenly got worse, and he had to go to sleep. We know that his family, Jean, Regina, Olive, Honey and Gizmo, all greatly miss him.
We hope there are lots of squirrels and grass, big dogs and treats wherever you are, big fella.
