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.
