Amy Hilderbrand











Our second beloved pet's name was Amy.  She, along with her sister Gracie, was found on the beach in Panama City, Florida.  According to the vet, she had to have been born sometime around Hurricane Ivan, so Judy gave the dogs the birthday of August 11, 2004. Her sister, Gracie, passed away on June 07, 2017. In the picture, Amy is on the left and Gracie is on the right. 

Amy left us on February 19, 2018 in Winchester, Virginia. She was 13 years, 6 months old.

Peaches Apricot Lilac Moon Youngblood

Peaches was born in Sperryville, VA on June 28, 2003.  He came from a Shar-Pei breeder who needed to find a special home for a 4 -month old special boy who had been abused by a former owner.  Peaches came to me when I called him and that was how we became a family.

Peaches loved to run and go for hikes.  His favorite thing had been our weekend hikes to nearby parks; he especially liked Cacapon State and Clearbrook parks.   Peaches also loved his stuffed animals with squeakers - his favorite when he was a pup was his sheep toy.

Mindy Moore

June, 2005 – February 13, 2018

Dave and Diane selected Mindy from a litter of pups their friends had in.  Mindy loved to bird watch, swim as most dogs do, and chew on her basketball.  She loved that basketball; Mindy would want you to throw her the ball and she would try to catch it.

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!

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.
