Millie was loved by people the world around.  She made everyone smile just by seeing her.  Often the clown, but always the princess. We miss her dearly.     Jeff and Nicole

                             ​Quincy

​Quincy was stubborn, smelly, and not very smart-but he sure was a sweet old soul.  Rest easy boy.​

Molly was a sweet and loving daddy's girl.  She loved cuddles and treats.  She was a huge bed hog that would somehow be right by your side but also take up the whole bed.  She loved to get huge drinks of water and come give you wet ear kisses.  She was our little shadow and wanted to be right by our side .  She was always ready to give a loving howl when we got home.

                               ​COPPER

​March 21, 2017     As an older old dog, you lived in a dusty backyard before WABR rescued you.  Sally Green didn't care about your history and adopted you any way.  Needing hospice care, the Plunkett family didn't care and took you in any way. Described as a gentleman and an amazing dog,  RIP, Copper. 

Millie   Sweet beautiful Millie was such an important part of our family.  She brought us kindness, many smiles playing with her toys, pretty pictures, and so much LOVE.  Millie is forever remembered.

​Our darling Dixie slipped her earthy bonds 21 May 2017, 10 days past her 14th birthday.  Rescued from WABR in 2009 she became our devoted pack leader, looking after all of us, fearlessly defending and protecting.  She has left a huge dent in our hearts.  Thank you sweet warrior princess, you've earned your rest.   


​Bruce Anderson

Lulu lived a happy, slobbery, sassy, spoiled life full of belly rubs, cookies, and doggie daycare.  Thank you WABR for bringing this sweet girl into our lives.  She is missed immensely.
