Jammer was a beloved member of our family for more than 11 years. He was a lively, loving, spirited dog who made us laugh and kept us busy! Jammer's jaunty gait and attitude, along with the fact that he was a beautiful dog, attracted attention from neighbors and strangers during his daily walks. Many had never heard of Australian Terriers, and he was a great ambassador for the breed. We miss him very much, and he will never be forgotten! Loved by Kari Frost & Kristi Dalenberg

In Memory of Abbott
Abbott came to us as a foster from the Alabama rescue. I was made to promise that we would not keep any of the foster dogs before I could volunteer to house them. However it was Mark who fell in love and decided to keep Abbot. One of our friends described Abbott as an “old soul” and he did seem to take the world in stride. His most happy snuggled up next to canine or human. Loved by Mark McGrath & Margie Robins. Donation made in memory of Abbott by Susan Saulvester.

In Memory of Ripley
In Memory of Tak A Chance Rowdy Ripley, CGC. He is my heart. Ripley made me laugh at all of his antics. He once shut himself in the closet tugging on a piece of hanging clothing, he backed into the door and it shut. When I opened the door, there he stood with that silly Aussie look "Hey, you found me". I was so proud and glad to be his "human". I truly lived in his world. Loved by Nikki & Brian LeJeune. Donation made by Susan Saulvester

Loved by Brooke Fitzsimmons.

Loved by, Jane Voeste and Marion Robus.

In Memory of Andy
CH Bondiblu's We Be Jammin' He was our first bred-by to finish. Which could he have enjoyed more, the excitement of the ring or the couch by the TV, we'll never know. Though every bit the boy, a kinder dog you couldn't of asked. Sharing his treasured places and things with sibling, parent and rescue alike. We lost him too soon to renal failure, a complication of SARDS. Alive with love and loyalty to the last. We miss you, little guy. Always in our hearts, Mike & Terry Palazzo.

Ginger Spice 1998 - 2011. My sweet little darling girl, she took every rescue dog I fostered under her little paw and showed them how to be a good dog. She was a social butterfly, never met a person or dog she did not like. Forever in my heart. Loved By Carole Larsen
In Memory of Prince
12/27/2001 to 10/19/2010 Prince was my beloved fur baby.We spent hours together each day doing all the things he loved: stealing my socks for treats, riding in the car with the windows down (even during the winter), walking in the woods rain or shine, playing tug and ball with us and his sister. We did all these things the day before he died - in my arms at home from a very rare and cancer. I now patiently wait for our reunion someday across the rainbow bridge. Loved by Jean.
In Memory of Adel
From the first moment we saw Adel, her love for us and our family was something special. With her easy-going manner, Adel just loved being held. Adel also exhibited an unusual interest in producing well-defined shapes, such as a straight line, angles, or curves with her kibble bits. Most importantly, she was full of love and life, a little mischief, and doing her best to please. Adel is so missed. Loved By Ken & Beth
In Memory of Rosalie
J-B-G's Hare Farm's New Blue Rose (Rosalee) Born Sept 2, 2002. Named after her Great Aunt "Yaralla's Wild Rose" (Rosie), but was nothing like her. From the first time we saw Rosalee (10 Weeks), she told us how it was going to be. Rosalee was independent, headstrong, and bossy, unless of course she was being your best friend, your bed buddy or your protector. We lost Rosalee November 22, 2010 due to cancer. She had a short life but she lived big. Loved By David & Tina.
In Memory of Bailey
Bailey was eight years old when we adopted him, having spent all his life in a puppy mill as a stud. He had a chronic yeast infection in one ear and had most of his teeth removed because of abscesses from lack of dental care. His eyes were dull and muscles soft from a lack of stimulation and exercise. Alas, after four plus years with us, his time ran out. A severe tumor in the left side of his head forced us to put him down when the pain became too great. We'll miss you, Bails. Marc & Susan.
In Memory of Bear
There never has been another dog that she has known that was sweeter than Bear. All I can say is that Bear was the true example of the unconditional love that a dog gives its owner. While Bear fought against diabetes, vestibular and hypothyroidism for the entire time we had him, he never stopped loving us and always had a smile on his face. We know he was suffering, but he never showed it, or stop dedicating himself to his family. On January 25, 2011 we lost our dear sweet Bear.
In Memory of Joan Holbert
ATCA member Joan Holbert passed away in August 2012 from complications related to diabetes. Joan was a Trainer, Registrar, and Director with the Clermont County, Ohio Dog Club for many years and was a member of the Delta Society. She took Molly to various places as a Therapy dog to bring joy and healing. Joan and Molly also participated in the R.E.A.D. program with children.
In Memory of Daisy Wade
I write with tears in my eyes, with the sad news that Daisy passed away on July 30th. She was almost 13 years old. She was surrounded by her family and friends. Her veterinary and day care family at Clocktower Animal Hospital loved her almost as much as Steve and I did! I miss her so much, but I am happy that she and Nedra and Jerry are together.
In Memory of Wylie
Wylie was a wonderful dog who loved to go for long walks with me and loved to chase flashlights and any other type of light that reflected off the walls. I don't think he really thought he was a dog, either that or he thought other dogs weren't worth his trouble. Loved by Margie Roulston.
In Memory of Tillie
July 8, 2008 - March 3, 2015 Tillie was a very little dog who occupied a very large part of our lives. She will live on in our happy memories of good times in San Francisco, Ocean City, and Lake Tahoe. Loved by Jane Voeste and Marion Robus. "I loved you well, and was loved. Deep Love endures to the end and far past the end. If this is my end, I am not lonely. I am not afraid. I am still yours." From "The House Dog's Grave" by Robert Jeffers
