Rest in Peace, Sweet Stanzie

 Rain Country Constanza
'Stanzie'
12/3/2001- 3/30/2015
We brought her home at 8 weeks of age.

We took 'Leo' with us, to pick out the new puppy.
Stanzie picked us.
She instantly ran to Leo and the bond was formed.

We feel so fortunate, that she was in our lives for more than 13 years.

She was all about the hunting.


Always on the lookout for un-invited wildlife.

She loved a good sun soak.

And some bee hunting.

 
She will always be our Super Stanzie.

Rest in Peace Sweet Girl.
We will always love you,
Sue, Paul and Wyatt

  27. I am so sorry about the loss of Stanzie. You have my deepest sympathy. I so enjoyed the time she and Gambler went to the heart of hearts dance and I will remember that leaping off the stairs photo. They never live long enough and it is always hard. I leave you with one of my favorite poems.

    CREATION

    When God made the Earth and sky, the flowers and the trees,
    He then made all the animals, and all the birds & bees.

    And when his work was finished, not one was quite the same,
    He said, "I'll walk this earth of mine, and give each one a name."

    And so he traveled land & sea, and everywhere he went,
    A little creature followed him, until its strength was spent.

    When all were named upon the earth, and in the sky & sea,
    The little creature said, "Dear Lord, there's not one left for me."

    The father sniffed and softly said, "I've left you till the end,
    I've turned my own name back to front, and called you Dog,
    My friend".

  28. My heart is so sad... I visit your Dale page to see what Wyatt and Stanzie are up to! They are my delight, they remind me of what it is like to have a Dale in the home! We have 2 Dales in heaven, Ellwood and Grace, and your 'story' always makes me smile! It's been 5 years without a 'Girl with the curl', and that's a long time, so I come here and share your 'story' with my family! You are in my prayers and I KNOW Stanzie is fully free with no limitations of any kind...in perfect health, beautiful and never to grow old again!
    Thank you for sharing her with us...With tears...and love... Karen
