Run Free, Amazing Hazel

Every so often, someone comes along who ends up changing your life and redefining what you know to be true about the world.

Hazel came into her people’s world in 2006, after surviving years of horrific abuse and neglect at the hands of multiple puppymillers. By all rights, she should have been scared, defensive and cautious. But this was Hazel, and she was tough, sassy, clever, and more than ready to tackle her life of freedom and love with her new and amazing family….

Keeping it Classy, Hazel

Hazel showed us that limitations are merely projections. If you didn’t know she didn’t have eyes…you’d never know she didn’t have eyes.


She taught so many people more about tolerance, forgiveness, love, and friendship than any book or human possibly could have.


Hazel has more than earned her wings. Her people have the most enviable guardian angel looking over them now.


Keep them all in line up there, Hazel, and keep an eye out for all of us down here. We’ll be missing you terribly, and we won’t ever forget who you were and what you taught us.

Run free and run strong, beautiful girl.


Hazel 1999(?) – 2015

Tribute by Hazel’s people:

If there is a heaven, it’s certain our animals are to be there. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an archangel to detangle them.

Hazel: 1999(?)–Jan. 5, 2015. Adopted by us in April 2006

Oh, my bold and bonny lass, run fast. Run Far. Run Free.

There just aren’t words to do justice to the incredible being you are or the size of the gap you will leave in my home and heart.

Tuni Tuesday Tribute


We seem to be losing a lot of friends this year, which either speaks to the number of buddies we have met online, or perhaps to the fact that is just a bad year for losing friends.

Tuni was a teeny, tiny, spunky rescue pug whose antics were a delight to follow online. Tuni’s pug love (and Lola’s BC buddy) Winston, has asked that Tuni’s pug friends post photos of  themselves cozy in their beds, as a tribute to this special, little soul.


For you, Tuni.


May Emma and Sequoia and your new baby brudder help your people through this challenging time, and don’t forget to send them a reminder every now and then that you are running happy and free up at the Rainbow Bridge.

Lots of pug love, little one.
