Cindy Beck

I have never met a boxer like Toby, he was the boxer everyone would want. He was so sweet and full of kindness, patience and guidance. He helped all the the foster boxers he shared his home with. He changed my soul as most boxers do when one opens their heart. I am crushed and devastated that he left me permanently on Christmas Eve. I shared 9 years with this wonderful boy and he was always there for me through great and sad times. I will always be grateful to have in in my life.

To Maddie, my sweet little Nubian goat

Thank you Maddie for all the fun times and love we shared and for your trust as we tried to work through your demons.  It was a privilege to know you for the short time we had together.  Heartbroken that it couldn’t have been longer.  You will be remembered by everyone you touched with your loving spirit.

Godspeed.  The Aguilar boxer clan (along with one cool Scottie) is waiting to welcome you at the Rainbow Bridge where we will all be reunited in time.

Ann Marie and Jose

IMO Layla – We loved her, she is greatly missed, and we are so thankful we were able to give her almost four years of knowing what a safe and loving home was like.  The one adjective that has been common amongst people using when told of Layla’s death is what a happy dog she was.  And she really was. After everything she had gone through, she was still so happy and loving.

Kimberly Maker

Carmen was a cat that hosted (as high priestess) 16 of my former fosters. Some only to find that they wished to have her meet her demise and they left to more amiable homes. She took it more in stride than I ever did! Her favorite foster dog was Breanna (they were the best of buddies). For dogs that did not want to eat her and those learning to accept felines, it was a good experience for both. She was strong willed and would not be put in second place at her home. She was an awesome traveler as well. She will be missed.
