Fuzzy Friends Ferret Farm

Life is a zoo. Take a look why...


Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death.  We entreat for them all thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words.  Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and so to share the blessings of the merciful.
~Albert Schweiter

MAJOR #2    Sept. 12, 1964 - May 6, 1975 

I was 16 and home alone when he collapsed and died in my arms.
127lbs. when he went to the Rainbow Bridge to meet my Poppy...

The sweetheart. He loved kids. He loved to wrestle. He was
VERY protective of us. 'Smart as a whip' my Dad would say.
He would open the gate, go to the curb, go to the bathroom, come back
up to the porch and close the gate. Although his disposition was a mush
with the family and most friends, he hated other dogs... UNTIL;

MUKLUK         Nov. 26, 1974 - April 8, 1983
                                                                                   
                                                                                                               April 1975                                May 1977

 He was a funny dog. Loveable, UNTIL he had a bone or biscuit. Then you couldn't look
at him or he would growl. If you had to get by him, you had to look up or away from him
and he knew it and would be fine.

MukLuk's father was Pasha
MukLuks mother was Zsa Zsa

When Major crossed the bridge on May 6, 1975 it was a devastating event in all our lives. We always had a dog in the house. Now he was gone and 'the silence was deafening'. Friendship and MukLuk lived with each of my brothers so they were only home on occasion. On May 8, 1975 we found MY true friend. Sabre was born 4 weeks before we lost Major. Sabre was also the runt of the litter we saw, but he was so cute. For almost 13 years Sabre and I were inseperable. I took him everywhere. Through thick and thin, we were always there for each other. I've had alot of pets over the years and although I love each and every one of them 'to the sun and back', Sabre is the one I miss the most. He had the biggest impact on my life as a friend, companion, brother, and sidekick...

SABRE    April 6, 1975 - Feb. 28, 1988

       
                                        Friendship, MukLuk and Sabre became instant buddies.


                                 
                                                                   April 1976

                          

They went that way!                                                                                         NO, they went THAT way!

***********************************************************************************

If nobody could find Sabre, I always knew where to look!

In late 1980 Mortissia came into our lives. She was 6 months old. Our first Doberman.


MORTISSIA
         Feb 14, 1980 - 1990    


                                 
            1983                                            1983                                          They just loved the bathtub!


                                                  
             1984                                          1989                                                 1990

She was a great dog. My parents were'nt real keen on the idea of me bringing a Doberman home.
When I did, it was obvious to them she was not an ordinary Dobe. My Dad and Mom were won
over one day when Mort was nowhere to be found. After a brief search, she was upstairs, in bed
with my Dad. Both were fast asleep... From then on, she was welcome anytime!

Choko        Jan. 14, 1991  - ?  

      
Choko was half Shepherd and half Doberman. One ear up and one down and a cool color!
He loved my son and my son thought he was the greatest and would laugh so hard when Choko
would wag his tail and beat my son with it.


_______________________________________________________________________________
_______________________________________________________________________________



Gumby      1993  - ?      Had to give him away.
 
                                        
            March 1993                                        March 1993                              April 1993

He loved the cats. He loved trying to beat up Choko, not understanding Choko was 85lbs heavier.

                             
           April 1993                                                                                   He didn't like the kids and would
                                                                                                               soil the blankets and around the crib.

He was a good dog although he didn't like the kids. He wasn't mean to them. In the top right photo he is teasing Goofy, look closely at Gumbys back left leg. He fell off the couch and broke it. Didn't slow him down one bit...

My heart has been broken many many times.
The love we have for our pets is absolute.
The love our pets have for us is unconditional.
None the less, it hurts.

Some say when a pet passes away,
you have to replace the hole in your
heart to survive and go on.
Your new friend will take the
place of the passed one.

There are many holes in my heart,
I don't fill them with new pets,
I fill them with the cherished memories
of my beloved past ones.

There is plenty of room
in my heart for holes
and memories.
There is plenty of room
in my heart for love...

O G-d, help me to live with my grief!


Death has taken my beloved, and I feel that I cannot go on. My faith is shaken; my mind
keeps asking: WHY? Why does joy end in sorrow? Why does love exact its price in tears? WHY?

O G-d, help me to live with my grief!

Help me to accept the mystery of life. Help me to see that even if my questions were answered, even
if I did know why, the pain would be no less, the loneliness would remain bitter beyond words.
Still my heart would ache.

O G-d, help me to triumph over my grief!

Help me to endure this night of anguish. Help me to walk through the darkness with faith in
tomorrow. Give me comfort; give me courage; turn me to deeds that bless the living.

O G-d, help me to triumph over my grief...
