Clark (ABR Caveman)

We lost our beloved family dog yesterday morning. Clark (known by Caveman by ABR) came into our home in January of 2016. He was the center of our home, spoiled beyond belief, and deeply loved by all of us. He really made our family whole, and we are heartbroken. We had 6 1/2 wonderful years with him. We adopted him heartworm positive, and ABR treated him. But as boxers often have, he ended up with heart troubles and was diagnosed with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (or ARVC) after he collapsed on a short/easy walk in 2020. Our local vet took 2 hours to get his heartbeat normal ..read more

This afternoon our sweet Buddy Boy crossed over the rainbow bridge. . . . . It was a pleasure over the past 10.5 years to be his owners.    His life started out rough and he had every reason to mistrust and hate man. However, our boy taught us the power of forgiveness when he trusted us to provide, love, and keep him safe. Our skinny, sick boy turned into a gentle 80lb giant who crawled in our laps to throw his head on our shoulders and shower us with love.    He was terrified of thunder, fireworks, and loud noises but he also never met a stranger. Once he realized we loved ..read more

Today my wife and I lost this beautiful, sweet, far-too-young girl, helping her to the edge of the Rainbow Bridge.  Cancer had spread in her and quickly, stunning us with its cruelty and thievery.  We never made it to her canine oncology appointment, scheduled for next week.  What if…if only…I wish… Molly was with us for a short three years of her six, yet what she brought to our home felt like so much more.  While each of us feel that our dogs are nothing less than pure in heart, Molly exemplified this trait to a degree not commonly seen.  She was my wife’s shadow, al ..read more
