Delta Sawyer

Delta came down with lymphoma at the same time my wife and I were also battling our own cancers.  She was the most affectionate girl ever.  She was a leaner, and every time I sat on the steps outside she was right there, pressing against me and I would put my arm around her and pull her even closer.  Her whole body would wiggle (like a tail wag)  and she’d circle around and through your legs like a fish every time I came home.  She loved to go on ATV rides through the woods with us.  I taught her a lot of things, she was really smart.  My heart is still broken having to put to sleep.  Our last month together was spent in a hotel while my wife was recovering from her own cancer fight.  She was so good, loved the staff and didn’t make any noise.   I was so proud of her.  Her time was short, but she lived a very good life on the farm.    I miss her.  I hope I can see her when its my time to go.


Toby was a great friend.  He spend endless hours at my feet on the couch watching TV with me.  He was a great guard and never had conflict with anyone.  Sandra and I will miss his food bowl flipping when he was hungry and his double bark when he wanted to come back indoors most of all.

Toby I’m hoping that you’ll see Samson, Gibby, Nisua, Roxy and Charley now and you all can play for ever.
