Casey Becker











August 3,1998  –  January 12, 2016

Casey came into our lives in October 1998, he was from Leesburg, Virginia; he was the last male golden retriever in the litter of many pups.  The breeders daughter was on the floor petting him when we first saw him and she almost didn’t want him to go.

Oreo Haines

March 17, 2007 – January 13, 2016

Oreo was given to the Haines family by a friend as a puppy; they immediately fell in love with him.  Oreo loved to ride in the car, go for long walks, especially on the beach, and playing with his brothers old shoes.

The family says that bringing Oreo home is their favorite memory; he changed all of their lives that day.  He was such a good and loving dog who made everyone happy all the time.  Oreo was spoiled and he enjoyed spoiling his family. 

Diamond Anderson

March, 2005 – January 8, 2016

The Anderson family received Diamond from a friend when she was 5 weeks old.   She loved waking her granddaddy up all hours of the night and playing with all the kids in the family.   Diamond was a beautiful girl.  She was loved by the whole family.  Though Diamond barked at the strangest things, she was amazing.   She was protective of the people she loved. 

Piper Mercer

Born in Lilburn, Georgia on December 27, 2002, Piper was soon adopted from a friend by the Mercer family.  

Piper loved to sit in the sun, while dad cooked on the grille. She enjoyed running through the yard with Stanley and Wally, who could never catch her.  Piper loved to lie in your lap and she would lay her head on the pillow next to Benji when he was crying.  Piper was the gentlest old girl, sweeter than any other pet the Mercer’s have been blessed with.  She is missed terribly and will never be far from their thoughts. 

Nikki Lutz

  Sadly, we had to put our beloved Whippet Nikki to sleep on Saturday, Dececember 26th.  She'd either had a stroke or a spinal injury as she'd suddenly lost all function in her rear legs on Christmas Eve afternoon.   Fortunately she was in no pain as I tried Prednisone for a couple days until she decided to stop eating & drinking.

Two Socks Doherty







11/11/2000 – 12/25/2015







Two Socks was 6 weeks old when he jumped out of a wrapped box on Christmas day and right into Hunter’s arms.  He was the best Christmas gift ever!  Two Socks loved his squeaky toy Dragon and enjoyed hiking at Bear’s Den.

Two Socks crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Christmas day surrounded by his family; parents, Denis and Maggie, sister, Sierra and his best friend, Hunter.

Spencer Mahoney





03/05/2005 – 12/13/2015






Star Dehaven

Our little star left the family to go to her new home in heaven.  She was just like a kid in the family... she brought so much joy to the family; she will be dearly missed by so many.  She had a great life here on earth.  I, Amanda, was the daughter in the family that always wanted a dog and my step father found this beautiful pride and joy that I called my Star May. She was 5 years when she came to our family in 2000 and has been with us till she was called home on December 5, 2015.  She loved going everywhere with me in the car.

Scottie Davis

September 22, 2003 – December 5, 2015

Scottie was a gift to Rick from Gene.  They went to the breeders in Bluemont, VA and picked him out of the litter.  Scottie loved to play ball, especially his big plastic ball which had a smaller ball inside, and his stuffed lamb.  He could catch a ball in midair!

Rick remembers, “He would talk to me when I came home from work, growl at my feet and pounce back and forth to play”.    Scottie loved the snow!  Gene took a picture of him covered in snow and Scottie made it on the TV news when we had the BIG snow.
