Submit an In Memoriam



One Memorial day weekend as we were putting flowers on my grandparents graves in a little country cemetery, this tiny, pathetic little animal comes out from under a bush. She fit in my hand. Someone had thrown her away. She was so weak we were sure she would not make it through the night, but she would be warm, safe and have a full tummy. We were blessed for 14-1/2 years with the most special, loyal, 45 pount friend you could ever want. She loved to go to the lake, ride in the boat and protect us whenever needed. She “worked” with me in my studio and we still miss her everyday. Jazz, we love you forever…

In 2001 he hit the streets of Skiatook, OK, with his first handler and made 10 arrests in the frist week alone. In November of 2006 Officer Shane Thompson took over as K-9 handler.

Thank you for bringing sunshine to my gray and gloomy days. God sent an angel and it was you, my precious friend. You touched my soul and brightened everyone’s day. As time passes, I hope recollections are more pleasant, than painful. Most make me smile, a few make me bite my lip and pause. They called you stoic, so silent through the pain. Did I hold on too long? Say hello to Grandpa, as you take your long walks with him. And give your puppy kisses to everyone you meet with that cute little sideways wiggle you do. As a “special someone” we know would say, “Today I saw a butterfly , thought of you and smiled.” Love you & miss you so.

Mr. Beau

When you were five years old you came to live with me. I
carried you up the stairs and I said God gave me this
precious little angel to love. You loved to walk, ride in the
car and we went on lots of trips together. You were always
so good. You loved your soccer ball more than anything.
You were so smart and adorable. Sometimes when we
walked you prissed, sometime you pranced. When we
took our midnight walks you were the king – you thought
you were such a little stud jumping and kicking and
growling after you ‘Teed.’ I am so grateful that God loaned
you to me to love, and I’ll never forget you. I’ll love you
forever, Mom.

Most memorable of the Hersh was her many visits she
made as a therapy dog with Karing K-9’s & Therapy Dogs,
Inc. She was a blessing to so many and special friend to
Moscelyne Larkin Jasinski – founder of the Tulsa Ballet.
She won “most therapy visits” with Karing K-9’s in 2006.
She was also a demo dog and student at Companion Dog
School of Tulsa, Inc. She won her last title at the age of
14 years – the High Ambor Award in Agility & Obedience.
On her last therapy visit she didn’t want to go inside – she
didn’t want to say goodbye. You’re beautiful Hershey A job
done with excellence.

A “real” Texas Cow Dog. You arrived from Texas
12 years ago. As all Border Collies do you took
over the household as your pack and became
“the Boss.” You were the sweetest and smartest
Border Collie ever. You fought valiantly in your
bout with cancer. A piece of our hearts died
when we lost you. We will never forget you. Your
loving “Dad” and “Grandma.”
