|We think a poisoned creature, perhaps a ground squirrel, crawled onto our
property to die and Justice found him. Varmint poisons used to be insufficient to
kill a predator but the varmints have become somewhat immune to the poisons
so manufacturers have increased the lethality. We urge that you be very careful
with or even abstain from using these poisons as their unintended
consequences can be awful.

He was the dog we were not supposed to get, and yet he filled our hearts with a
love and understanding beyond what we expected or deserved. The last five
years of our life were special because of this gift. He was one of a kind, never
to be replaced by any born or
yet to be born! We are wallowing in our many memories and still some days a bit
crying. We miss him so very much, but are so very grateful for the
gift of his time with us.
We just want to emphasize that he was more than a pet, he was a part of our
daily lives, sharing our couch with his head in our laps, and at night he slept on
our bed with his head literally on our shoulders. He shared our days giving us
love and attention. His beautiful big eyes followed us everywhere and the wag
of his tail expressed his joy at
being beside us. He is irreplaceable.
Schatzili epitomized love, not only of us but all of our friends. Loved company
and especially going out for lunch. He was a happy dog. Intelligent as to
responsibilities, knew our ups and downs. Always happy to go on a walk, he
would do a little dance
when we said "walk". A walk was an adventure and all the neighborhood loved
Our best friend.

Our wonderful stay & birthday celebration at Alex' & Sharon's ranch for Dashielle, Gianni & Envy
was overshadowed by the tragic loss of Ruby. Ruby succumbed to renal failure the day after we left.
We are so thankful that we got to spend her last days on earth with Ruby & that she got to see her extended family.
Ruby, GCH Silverado Ruby Tuesday, was our first Grand Champion & our girl Jade's sister.
Ruby was an amazing show dog amassing many breed wins but most of all she was the adored &
beloved companion to Alex & Sharon & treated like the queen she was every day of her life
There will never be another like her; he will be missed & treasured forever...

Jake's family is suffering his recent loss & there was no better family dog than Jake. Jake was so loving & gentle with the girls as they grew &
was a huge part of their life. The girls absolutely adored him & often drew pictures & wrote stories about him.
He was the perfect older brother toRaven, Silverado VooDoo Doll. Jake was a very special dog with a big heart & a comedian, always making
people laugh. Loving family member, show dog, running partner...Adored by so many
Jake will be loved always & missed everyday...

Dashiell lost his courageous struggle with cancer on Saturday, June 13, 2015. There
was no sweeter, friendlier dog on the planet than Dash. He loved absolutely everyone
he met human & canine alike. He loved coming to dog shows to support sister Ruby &
to meet as many people as he could.
Dash made the transition from city dog to ranch dog last year & loved following Dad
around the land while he worked.
He was a snuggle bug too & loved lounging in bed with Mom in the morning.
The world is a sadder place without his generous soul.

We are sad to announce the passing of a Silverado Family member &
beloved companion to Lisa & Jesse.
Bison was a gorgeous boy who finished in just 7 shows. He loved everyone
he met. We traveled with him to Washington for our National Specialty & he
was a joy to be with. The world is a sadder place today.
"You were the best backpacking buddy and telemark skiing partner a girl
could ask for. You cleaned the kitchen floor every night after the kids
tossed their crumbs in every direction. You made me feel safe when I was
running solo through the woods, and when I was home alone on those dark
lonely nights. You would faithfully crawl through miles of dense manzanita to
be at my side, and swim across vast open water to be my trustworthy omega.
You were my first baby. I hope you're finally at peace and may your insides
be calm and zen. I'm just sorry it was only so short. Please know that we will
never forget you."...Mom Lisa
