|| Gone but Never Forgotten
Godiva left her pawrents on November 16, 2016.
"Godiva was our very special girl. When we picked her up in Iowa she slept the whole drive home to IL in my lap. I knew that we had a very special bond. Godiva would bark and carry on if I did not pick her up and carry her around all the time. Godiva's daddy would always comment that when I held her she always looks like she was going to go to sleep. I would respond back that she knows and loves her mom. I had NO doubt that she loved me. I would wake up and find her looking at me or when she was at my side she would glance at me to make sure I was still next to her. Not to mention all of the kisses that she bestowed on to me. I also knew that she loved her papa lots, but she was my little girl."

Fergi left her Mom and Dad on January 13, 2009. Fergi loved everyone she met but had no interest in socializing with other fluffy butt, or the commoners, as she called them. Fergi was almost 14 years young when she left but she has certainly left her mark on her little corner of the world. We love you and miss you, Fergi. I'll take care of your Mom for you.
Nina-Mouse is a former FluffyButts kid who was adopted 4 short years ago with her brother, Angus. Shannon, Ross, and Megan gave this little girl everything. Nina fought the good fight against "The Big C" for 10 months and was a little trooper the whole time, through all the chemo and radiation. We will never forget this wonderful, amazing little girl.
I love you, Nina-Mouse.
APRIL 11-2010: I'm so sorry to tell you that Sherman the Tank passed away on Sunday. I was just looking at his adoption photos and am completely astounded at the life and change of my little angel. I wanted to send you some photos of his journey, our journey, and thank you for the work that you do. You gave me the greatest love of my life in Sherman. We had 3 1/2 years together, and I truly believe that I saved his life and he saved mine. I will always feel that he was taken far to soon - he had a bigger love of his life and excitement for every single day than anything I have seen before - every day was Christmas for him.
Sherman started his 2nd chance with myself and two wonderful roommates. He was never home alone, always being held, taken outside, and played with. The vets told us not to get attached when we brought him home, and within a few months they were shocked, telling us that he is a shining example of what love and care can do for an animal. He went from sleeping 20 - 22 hours a day, to going for walks, playing with toys, exploring outside and having an energy I never thought I would see in him. One of the most amazing and tender qualities he had was how clearly he communicated his undying appreciation and love for his new mom and new life.
The last three months of Sherman's all too short life were spent in the tropics - Miami Florida. We spent our time down there basking in the beautiful sun, playing in the long grass, exploring the beach, and not missing the cold and snow. I wanted to share photos with you that show the change. You make lives like his possible. You are the reason he had a chance. Thank you. I have been looking at doggies you have up for adoption now - so many sweet pups. I will post Apollo's donation information on my facebook page and email all the big hearted people I know. My prayers are with him as he faces this challenge. If there is one thing Sherman taught me (besides what a blessing he was) it is that these little one's are fighters, tougher than almost anything or anyone in the world. I would love to send more photos if you are interested. Thank you again for all that you do.
"My Sweet Boy"...I will miss you furever, you took part of my heart and soul with you. I would give most anything to have one more day with you!
Wrigley, aka Wriley, came to us right after we adopted Bocelli from FluffyButts, Oct., 2009. I saw his photo, learned that he was 10 (but in reality he was 13) and deaf, and knew he belonged in our home. He was the kindest, gentlest and most grateful soul I have ever met. We talked to him just as though he could hear us, I secretly think when I knelt down next to him and spoke right into his ear how much I loved him and told him he was "my sweet boy", he heard, one way or another! Everyone who met him, loved him at first sight. He was a daddy's boy and in nice weather they went everywhere together: Home Depot, HyVee, cigar store and for donuts. The list goes on. He loved the car. When I was along, he rode in my lap, sleeping like a baby. We only had one short year with "Wiggy", not nearly long enough. But he brought more joy and peace to our home than I can say.
I thank him for letting me cuddle with him, spooning with him in bed at night, him rolling almost on his back so I could cuddle but yet rub his belly. Oh how he loved his belly rubs. I thank him for loving us so, no matter what. And I especially thank him for picking me to be his mommy...furever!!! Live pain-free now, my sweet boy!
