Ezmi- July 16th, 2010 

EzmiEzmi and her best buddy Ian the Vizsla were 15 years old when they lost their home in a divorce. Due to extreme neglect they both had numerous (preventable) health issues from which they could not recover. Their foster families cared for them both lovingly up until the very end and volunteers were with both dogs as they passed away peacefully. Thanks to the volunteers of MHWR, Ezmi and Ian got to experience kindness and love as they entered into their final journey.
Ezmi we know your heart and soul have found peace and comfort at last, we love you!

Blue Angel- July 12th, 2010 

Blue AngelI was Angel's foster mom & it was my honor to foster her-she was 100% part of our family & so very loved & will always be in our hearts. Sweet Angel cowered that first day when I met her, didn't know how to walk thru a doorway into our home so we carried her. She didn't know it was good take treats from our hands, she was scared of everything new. Each day she grew stronger, braver, more curious & soon her little tail was wagging instead of tucked away. Soon she licked chicken from my hand & trotted on walks instead of crawling, she perked up when she heard the jingle of a leash, knew the sound of the treat bag, the rattle of her food bowl, & she LOVED cuddling! She'd sleep with her head on my chest each night & wake me with gentle kisses(& she could snore with the best of 'em!). She loved her foster siblings & they miss her terribly. She enjoyed the dog park, long walks, lounging in the doggy pool & belly rubs. I am thankful to everyone at Mile High Weim Rescue for letting me know & love my sweet Angel.

Angel...I love you my sweet girl. I will always be with you.

Riley Herman- 2010 

RileyLast week we had to say good-bye to our beloved Riley. We adopted Riley from MHWC Rescue in December 2005. His sweet personality and charm made us laugh and smile each and every day. He was an active guy who loved to hike, run and chase balls (because fetching meant he had to bring the ball back to us). But he also loved to soak up the sun shining in the back door in his favorite position - on his back with four paws in the air. Based on the number of calls, texts, Facebook messages, cards and even flowers, he was loved by one and all. His "grandparents" wrote "...even when we hadn't seen him for a while, he always greeted us warmly, wagging his tail and looking for a moment of affection. I guess maybe you could attribute that to just being a dog, but we thought Mr. Riles was special." We miss Riley dearly and know he is footloose and pain-free in the mountains above. Riley was our first weim but he won't be our last.
Rest in peace, "Handsome."

Von Inx Lady Hannas-"Taylor" 2010 Memorium 

TaylorWords cannot express the feelings I have as I type this. It was 7yrs ago today that my big grey girl crossed the Bridge, She was an amazing Weim, My Life at the time was a real mess. Trying to raise 2 girls on my own, making enough money to support the girls & myself let alone a dog, But Taylor never cared. She was always there, My Best Friend, then after a few year this got better, where was Taylor right there, we Hunted , did water sports, went camping, never left home without the Grey Girl. She helped with the raising of my girls, was a great guard dog, most of all if I was down or not feeling well, she was right there. She was large by most standards, 27-28 in tall , weight always perfect, coat soft & shiny. In her later years I taught her how to Detect Drugs. She acted more like a tomboy than a female dog. So to you My Best Friend I say I miss you ! Hope life is good there, I know you will be waiting at the Gate with, Brandy( I Setter), Kelley( GoldenX), Horse( Lab-Shep), Zeus-(G.Dane), Zeus(Weim) ,Tucker (GASP), Brady(CoonHound) ,Minnie Pearl.( Dach)

Jesse James- 2010 

Jessie JamesA best buddy to his "weim sister" Smokey and to his human foster brother Tristan, he was loved by all! He liked to take short daily walks, and was a great best friend. He was a mellow fellow who loved to doze in the sun or lounge by the fireplace. Jesse held the record for being in rescue for the longest amount of time. He came to MHWR on 1/16/08 and went to his new home in March 2010 at age 12. Everyone who met Jesse loved him. We take comfort in knowing that Jesse finally found his forever home and was with his new family when he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

~We love you Jesse James~
