Madison “Maddie” Marie Bolton

Maddie was adopted by her loving Nana and mommy in April, 2007.  She developed into a very loving puppy despite having trust issues.  She was extremely intelligent, teaching herself many tricks and had a love for brain toys, Kong’s and cardboard boxes. 

She is preceded in death by her Golden brother, Dakota J.  She leaves behind her Golden sister, Kay-Cee; her mom, Cathy Bolton; her Nana, Ginny Bolton; an aunt, Patti Huppman; and 2 legger cousins, Brandi and Chris Merryman.

She will be forever missed and loved.

Lily Sinclair

April 15, 2007 – January 16, 2018

I received a call at work one day asking if I could take her in cause her owner was going to put her down; she didn’t want her.  Lily was about 9 months old when she came into my home.  Lily loved to ride in the car and to cuddle.  She liked tiny beanie animals to toss around.  Lily would woo at you when she got upset.

Lily is survived by her parents, Wrangler and Susan; brothers, Wi-ski and Wiley; and big sisters, Kayla and Leilani.

Tootsie Wise


“Little Red Hot Tootsie”

November 28, 2001 – December 7, 2017

Tootsie was given to Barbara by her sister.  She loved to bark at people and things outside.  Tootsie enjoyed playing with her skunk.  She won “Brightest Eyes” at the BryceFest 2004 Dog Show.

Tootsie lived to run like crazy in the back yard for no reason.  The Wise family will always remember how she greeted us when we came home, whether it was two hours or two weeks; Tootsie was glad to see us!

Rocket Carrington


July 23, 2007 – December 4, 2017

Rocket belonged to a close friend, who had bought him as a puppy.  Our friend had to move and could not keep him; after one other home, he came to live with us in 2010.   Rocket loved to run and he loved to snuggle with us.  He enjoyed playing with his stuffed candy cane that has a squeaker.  Rocket could pull his lips back and show you his smile; we’d say show me your smile and he would!

Stella Luxemburger Heier


April 17, 2006 – December 1, 2017

Mom, Kate, adopted Stella as a puppy; however later, at the age of 3, decided she would live a quiet life with Gramma Sandy.  She enjoyed playing ball and chew bones.

Candy came into our family through a litter my cousin had.  She walked out of the crate and jumped straight up on my lap and would not leave.  Candy would love to sit on my lap in the evenings.  She enjoyed her red rubber ball and liked to shake hands.

Tyrone Nicholson





In Memory of Tyrone Nicholson





Twelve years ago you knocked on my window looking for someone to love you and feed you.  For several nights you came at the same time and after several weeks, I was able to have the honor of loving you inside my home.  I love you very much, with all my heart, and know now, you are at peace.


God saw you getting tired, 

When a cure was not to be.

So He wrapped his arms around you,

and whispered, "come to me."
