CH Pendragon's S of Misty Meadows - "Shirley"

After turning 12 in early December we lost Shirley the week before Christmas 2007--what a precious soul she was---we miss her very much.


"Raleigh" - March 9, 1996-September 22, 2006

Rescued with love five years ago by the Carroll family, Raleigh passed suddenly on September 22 from congestive heart failure.  He was saved from a life that had forgotten him, only to become a savior in his on right.  He was the guardian of our home, a big hug at the end of the day, a listener when no one else would, a big brother to show the way, and a playful soul to make us laugh.

To the world’s biggest best friend you will forever and always remain a piece of our hearts. Thank you Raleigh for rescuing us and may you forever guard the heavens above.

We love you.
Clint, Jessica, Cricket and Ruger


CH Spicewood's I Go To The River  - "Eli"

Our hearts break with the sharing of the news that our wonderful stud dog Eli has passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. 

Ch. Queen Elizabeth of Heavensgate

Ch. Queen Elizabeth Heavensgate "Elizabeth"

With a sadness that is almost to much to bear, but with God's help we are holding up, we announce the passing of our 11 year old mastiff matriarch Elizabeth--she has been slowly going down hill with each passing month and finally made it clear that it was time. Our hearts are breaking at the passage of our companion of so many years.



It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Boaz, our 9 year old Rottweiler.  On the 27th of December he was diagnosed with lung cancer, and he lived until January 20.  We miss him very much.


CH Mistymeadow Forget-Me-Not - "Sister"

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our Sweet Sister.  We are so grateful that she was able to spend the later years of her life here at Spicewood.  We loved her dearly and will miss her very much.  We are blessed by god to have her daughter living here and 2 sons living with great families.  Martha and Leo have proven to possess their mother's and father's type and temperament; our future is in their paws.

For My Maggie

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

Love always - your Jessica
