In Loving Memory

"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan." Irving Townsend, The Once Again Prince

"Dogs' lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know the pain is coming, you're going to lose a dog, and there's going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can't support the illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There's such beauty in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always aware it comes with an unbearable price. Maybe loving dogs is a way we do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves and for the mistakes we make because of those illusions." -Dean Koontz, The Darkest Evening of the Year

This page is dedicated to the memory of Shelties who have been a part of the Colorado Sheltie Rescue story. Many of these wonderful dogs were beloved family members when they passed away. Others weren't as lucky. Regardless, each of these doggie angels deserves to be honored and remembered and to have a tear shed in its memory.

Rest in peace, precious ones.

“The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man's.” Mark Twain

Riley came to us from an out-of-state shelter. He was completely emaciated and terribly ill with pneumonia. We immediately took him to the vet, where he spent the night in intensive care. Sadly, Riley was too ill to recover. He was 11 months old. Read Riley's story.
