He did take his role as family protector seriously though as he patrolled his property’s perimeter several times a day, every day. No bird dared enter Jake’s air space! Jake had a unique, understated personality and an unmistakable prescence. Our family isn’t the same without our Jakie Boy. We love you Jake. We miss you. Mommie, Dad, Lexi amd Megan.

Palin (click here for PDF)
December 9, 2011 – January 6, 2021
A Tribute to Palin & the Rescue of Each Other
Loyal Companion, Protector & Loving Partner
Palin, you came into our lives as a Rescue Doberman for a new life, a new adventure and a new beginning. I thank God in Heaven and You for the love, the opportunity and the companionship you provided. As a Proud Rescue we didn’t know each other, but over the months from the very beginning we learned and began to understand each other. I learned about your secrets through your body language and your hidden happy and playful personality. You learned about my needs and what was important. I learned from you about your loyalty, devotion, comedy and you learned how to make me laugh. When the time came for companionship, you learned your role by never leaving my side and I learned from you how committed you were by your comfort and devotion by leaning against me or placing your head on my lap extending your touch. You told me, “I’m here.” You knew when Pat passed, and you stepped up to the challenge and took on a new role of support, loyalty, protection and a comforting “Bed Buddy”, all without conditions. Palin, you are a true Doberman and we both learned how to strongly commit to each other…unconditionally. You became my bedrock during the difficult times, of which I will be forever grateful. Palin, we loved you and I will love you forever always for the opportunity to rescue you as you provided a need , of which, I will forever miss and never forget. Your silly antics of, a bossy personality, “Doby Talk” and whimper, being my alarm clock, reminding me it’s bedtime, our “Palin Time”, dancing dinnertime and your unconditional love, protection and companionship. I know that God will one day put us together again when I’m called to be with you. Till then Palin, we can only remember a wonderful chapter in our lives with each other.
Palin, from my Heart to Yours, Thank you for the Honor you gave us to be your Humans,

He could barely stand and he also would no longer allow us to insert the medication into his mouth nor eat.This happened quickly and unexpectedly and we are very very sad. We have another dobe girl that is in mourning very much. Rami was a fearless and loyal protector and companion that will be missed enormously. Thank you for letting us adopt him.
