Betty enjoying the sunshine.


Our dachshund Betty, the inspiration for
Betty was a gentle spirit and a good girl her entire life.
She left with grace and dignity, just as she lived.

Betty was our best little friend.
We will never get over this terrible loss.

July 14, 1995 - April 25, 2009


On Betty's last day she got to go for a car ride, sit in the grass and feel the warmth of the sun, sniff the air, watch a cardinal in the tree, see a cat, contemplate chasing the cat, put nose to the ground to follow the trail of the cat, rest beside her mom all day long, have her dinner, sleep on her favorite fuzzy, nibble a little pizza crust, spend time with her dad, sit outside and feel the cool evening breeze blow across her face, sniff the air, and look around with love at the world. Then she was gone.

See Betty in her younger years.
