Samson Oliver Schaeffer

11/16/2008 – 9/8/2020

Samson was a fun loving boy, who brought pure enjoyment to our family.  He loved to carry his stuffed toys around; which included his favorites, a stuffed dog and a stuffed Lamb Chop.  Samson enjoyed doing his chores, including carrying in the groceries, as well as the mail.  However, most of all, he enjoyed eating!

Max Haines

Maxwell Mocha Marauder Haines, more affectionately known as Max, was laid to rest on August 26, 2020. He was born on May 21, 2010 and bought from an AKC breeder in Augusta, WV. He had huge paws and stood out from his siblings which made him the prime choice above the rest. He spent all of his doggy years residing in Capon Bridge, WV where he was given the best ten years of his life. He is survived by his pet parents, Jason (known to Max as “Daddy”) and Chrissie (“Mommy”) Haines.

Duke Snickers Feltner

September 21, 2007 – August 20, 2020

Duke came into our lives as a rescue from the Clarke County SPCA.  When we saw him, we knew he was the forever fur baby for us!  His granddad, Bill, gave Duke his new name.  Prior to living in the shelter, he was part of a hunt club; which Duke didn’t enjoy, so his previous owners turned him into the SPCA; which was lucky for us!!

Bo Swisher

 

I received Bo after my grandfather passed away in January.  Bo was a loving and playful dog; always loved getting attention.  My favorite memory was how Bo and my daughter were so close and how they became best friends from the time she was born.    He will truly be missed from our family. 

Bo crossed the Rainbow Bridge on August 10, 2020 and met his daddy, my grandfather, on the other side.  He is survived by my dad, Pete Swisher, my husband, Davey and daughter, Chloe.

Peyton Sites

Peyton was born in July of 2006 and was returned to Briggs Animal Adoption Center due to his Special Needs of having Addison’s disease at the age of 3. He then lived at Briggs for over a year until I adopted him in August of 2010 and after being introduced, he slowly and skittishly walked up and warmed up to me. During our 10 years together, he had his ups and downs, but always chose the upside of things. You could always find him outside lying in the sun and when he wasn’t outside you could find him lying inside in some sun rays.

Paco Robinson

Paco was left in a box at a kill shelter.  He was then rescued from the kill shelter by Lost Dog Rescue.  I rescued Paco from there; he was about 13 years old and was completely hairless.  Word was, he had survived a house fire.   Paco was a happy little boy.  He loved to bark and roam the yard.  Paco was with our family for 10 ½ years and was full of attitude and spunk!  Paco passed July 21, 2020; mere words cannot possibly describe our feelings of loss. 

Paco is survived by me and his dad, Lou; and canine siblings: Toby, Lily, Bella and Piggy.

Kattie Boyd

April, 2006 – July 13, 2020

We got Kattie at 7 weeks old from Heartland Kennels.  She loved to hunt with her daddy and playing with her retrieving dummy.  Kattie enjoyed watching “her” stalk frogs.  However, most of all, she liked just being Katie!

We will always cherish how excited she would get when she knew we were going hunting; she was always at 100%, always sniffing for smells.  She was the love of our life and she is greatly missed.  Kattie, till we see you again!

  • Allen and Judy Boyd, Kattie’s parents.

Janie May Clowser

 

 

 

 

1/10/09 – 6/23/20

 

 

 

 

We were looking at Golden Retriever’s and Janie May was the first pup to come to us, so we picked her.  She enjoyed life.  Janie would run, jump and play with the water hose; as well as all her toys.  Janie May liked to snatch treats!  But most of all she loved being close to us.    Janie May always met mommy when she arrived home and got out of the car after work.  She enjoyed running with daddy’s 4-wheeler in the field.
