For The Love of Dogs
Our sweet baby girl! We welcomed her home October 2020, and have been in love with her ever since! Even now, she still acts like a puppy, and we don’t think she will ever stop. We got her when we lived in San Diego, and she endured the move to Texas. She loves her new home, and her new brother!
Meet the newest edition of our family, Winchester AKA Win! We welcomed Win to our home August 2022, and we all fell in love with him. Zoe has met her match when it comes to crazy, but she loves having a brother to play with. My dreams of getting a corgi have finally come true!
My granddog! She is my youngest daughter’s baby girl, and we absolutely love her! She turns 4 in October 2022. She is a very goofy girl, who loves cuddling, sprinting after her chuck-it ball, and covering you with kisses!
Everyone, meet Patch! We welcomed him into our family December of 2016, when he was 7 years old. We rescued him from The Crossings Animal Sanctuary in Pennsylvania, and he lived with us in Maryland and San Diego. He was able to live out the last few years of his life surrounded by so much love and happiness. He loved snuggling on the couch, taking lots of hikes, playing tug of war, and wearing bandanas. Sadly, he passed away April of 2020. We still miss him very much, but we were lucky enough to make his last years very spoiled. ♥️
Everyone, meet Tyberius, or Ty for short! We got Ty as a puppy in April of 2010. He lived with us while we were in Maryland, and he had such an amazing life! He loved to adventure in the woods with our kids, try to eat bumblebees, and play any chance he got! Sadly, he passed away unexpectedly in December of 2015. We love him so dearly to this day, and we miss him so much. He was our original good boy. ♥️
Everyone, meet Sparky! We got Sparky way back in 2002, before phone cameras existed, so this is one of the only photos we have of him. We welcomed him into our home when we lived in Utah, and he was a farm dog before becoming our beloved pet. He moved with us to South Dakota, and he was such a staple in mine and my daughter’s lives. He loved to run around and explore, and our favorite part of the year was getting his summer haircut because he just looked so handsome. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2006, and it was very hard for us to move on. When I met Chuck, my husband, and found out not only was his last name Sparks, but his call sign for the Navy was “Sparky”, I knew it was Sparky’s way of telling me he approved.
The Crossings Animal Sanctuary is where we adopted Patch from. They rescued Patch after his loving parents were put in hospice care. He was neglected for a while, as he was trusted to be taken care of by their neighbors. He was quite skinny and missing patches of fur when we got him, so we can only imagine his condition when they rescued him. We are eternally grateful for The Crossings, as they were very picky in the application process because they wanted to find the perfect home for our Patchy boy.
Best Friends Animal Society is the United States’ largest no-kill shelter for companion animals such as cats, dogs, and horses.

Their goal? To reduce the number of animals killed in shelters each year and, eventually, to Save Them All.
