Shawnee was adopted from the Fauquier SPCA.  I knew the moment she looked into my eyes, she was our companion.  Shawnee picked us!!  

Shawnee loved to walk trails, sniff at poop and lay on the porch to sunbathe.  She understood everything.  And knew how to roll, shake hands and speak!

Jacob Edward “Jake” Burau





March, 2004 – September, 2018





Jake came to the Burau family as a pup and stole their hearts from the first wiggle butt!  He enjoyed walks and car rides.  Jake would blow bubbles with his spit; which would cause his family to laugh.  He loved to play with his sisters’ Elmo and snuggling up in fleece blankets. 

Mieu Morgan–Care















Mieu walked in front of me and sat down, blocking my path and said, “Mieu!”  She stole my heart from that moment on.  Mieu loved to chase the laser pointer and sleep in my hands.  My favorite memory is she would attack by arm and hand when I’d whistle.  She’d put her front paws on my thigh and extend her claws to get picked up and held.

Mieu is greatly missed!

Muffin Yang

June 20, 2006 - July 9, 2018

We got Muffin for our dad when he had a heart attack. Then he came to live with us when dad became too old to care for him.  We had Muffin for more than 10 years and what a blessing he was to us!

Muffin enjoyed car rides and barking at the cat.  He also liked to cuddle with us.  Muffin loved his squeaky pig toy.  Although we did not approve, he also liked to get into the “closed” garbage can.

Sweety Dog Moats











Sweety Dog was a gift from people who were moving and were unable to take him with them.  He was talented; Sweety Dog could sit, shake paw and stay.  He loved to play with his stuffed soccer ball, however eating and walking was Sweety Dog’s favorite thing to do.

He is survived by his mom, Paula, and brothers, Christopher (Melissa) and Samuel (Angela).

Rosie Blankenship













Rosie was born in Fayetteville, NC on September 20, 2003 and came to the Blankenship family by adoption from a neighbor.  She enjoyed chasing groundhogs and rabbits out of her yard.  Rosie cherished Christmas, especially when she opened her own gifts!  She was an ornery one; once when she was a puppy her family left her by herself and when they arrived home she had destroyed the house!  Rosie loved treats and her neighbor, Nit.

Roscoe William Schaeffer

April 2, 2004 – June 8, 2018

Roscoe entered into the Schaeffer family as a gift to Ritchie from Gayle.   He loved to play with his brother, play ball, and go to the beach and to the river.  Roscoe, also, enjoyed playing with stuffed toys.  He was the neighborhood watch.  Once, Roscoe helped catch someone vandalizing a neighbor’s truck!  He saved the day.
