In Loving Memory of Meatball

December 14th, 2017|

It is with great sadness we let the Village know that Alum Meatball passed away yesterday due to complications from megacolon. When Meatball was adopted by his wonderful family, he had been diagnosed with Addison’s disease. The family said he did wonderfully over the years with this. They are heartbroken and said he was a feisty man who loved to yodel! We send our condolences to his family.

In Memory of Olive

December 1st, 2017|

It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news of Alum Olive’s passing. Olive was struggling with seizures. Her family fought hard to help her and reported that she passed away peacefully in her sleep in her mommy’s arms. Olive’s family said, “She was the coolest little gal around. Her good days were awesome and she was so loved in our little family.” We send all our love and condolences to […]

Memorial for Roe’s Bud

September 13th, 2017|

“Every once in a while, a dog enters your life and changes everything…Author Unknown”
 
This rings true for our followers, but one in particular on this day. Losing our beloved animals has a different reaction with each of us, much like losing a family member. Some, like our follower Janice Walker Pogue, decide to make the lives of others better and for her very generous donation to the Village we wanted to make this day […]

RIP Amos

September 8th, 2017|

The Village mourns today the loss of our foster, Amos. What should have been an elongated soft palate surgery to ease his breathing turned out to be a surgery that discovered a huge tumor lodged in the back of his throat. A heroic effort was made to give him a chance for life but the tumor was not able to be removed. Amos crossed the Bridge in the arms of those who loved him. […]

Memorial for Ellie (formerly Fiona)

August 22nd, 2017|

Ellie’s forever parents sent this amazing memorial for us to share about their precious little girl:

“Ellie passed away at home on June 19, 2017. We were and are devastated by her loss. We wanted so much more for our little princess—we wanted to share the world with her, and to share her with the world. Ellie was so many things: happy, playful, insistent, funny, mischievous, clever, stubborn, indulgent, but mostly she was love incarnate. […]

RIP Sweet Ringo

May 19th, 2017|

FBV “Georgia Gang” foster Ringo passed away on April 20, 2017. He was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer shortly after arriving at his foster mom’s home. Here is what she had to say about sweet Ringo’s passing:

“My beloved protector, FBV foster Ringo, passed today with the compassionate assistance of his hospice service.

I knew his time was coming but it wasn’t until a professional evaluation earlier this week that it became very apparent he was […]

Holly, aka Halle Berry (part of the GA gang), has passed away

April 11th, 2017|

Our beautiful foster French Bulldog, Holly (aka Halle Berry) of the GA gang, crossed the rainbow bridge in her sleep 4/9/2017 very peacefully in her foster mom’s living room. Since she was headed for a consult appointment with a specialist on 4/10/2017, it seemed like the right decision not to rush her to the ER as she exhibited no signs of distress. Poor baby…..she was suffering more than we knew. All the great doctors at her […]

Run Free Vito

April 1st, 2017|

We received some very sad news from the forever family of Vito, a FBV alum.

“I don’t know what to write really. He was such a strong boy. He came to us unable to walk and ended up hiking mountain trails. He loved being outside and on the water and we’d always joke that he was a lab in a Frenchie body. We feel so lucky to have been his parents. He was available for adoption […]

RIP Brooklyn

March 9th, 2017|

It’s with a heavy heart that we share the sad news of Brooklyn passing. Former critical care foster Brooklyn, adopted by one of our volunteers, passed peacefully at home on March 1, 2017 at 1:45pm. Not long ago, Brooklyn was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumor. Please hold Brooklyn’s family in your hearts and send sweet Brooklyn love from across the bridge. If you are so inclined, we know that her family would appreciate donations […]

In Memory of Beef

October 22nd, 2016|

It is with great sadness that we learned of Beef’s passing. We send our love and deepest sympathies to his family.

Here is the email that we received from his forever mom:

“Beef was rescued from the Village in 2009; we had only 7 ½ years with him.  He, like so many other Frenchies, had horrible environmental and food allergies. When I saw his big smile and his floppy ears (from total ear canal ablations) my heart filled […]
