Kiki was born April 26, 2003, and was sired by CH Silver Trails WYSIWYG ex Heart Lake’s Circle of Life "Kiara." Kiki was minored out and Wally and Dee were waiting for the majors to start up again so she could finish her championship. Kiki died from a bowel obstruction after surgery on New Years Day January 1, 2011, after she had surgery on the previous day. We will miss her terribly. She was a great love.







Heart Lake's Circle of Life "Kiara"

On behalf of our friends, Gerry, Caryn & Jon who had this to say about Kiara...

She was soooo beautiful and a real "lady".  She loved to go to the dog park in Hoboken and was more interested in people than the dogs running around.  She'd go up to the owners sitting on the benches while their dogs played and just about introduced herself to each person. They were amazed by her! She was so gentle around children and loved people in general.  She will be very missed by us and my son, Jon...  There will never be another Kiara and out hearts are broken.  She was so loved by so many.

Kiara was 14 years young. She was a Simba (Ch Gairloch's King of Hearts) daughter and dam of Kiki pictured above.

We would like to publish this on behalf of our friends, Dr. Amy Danser and Kathy Murphy

Ch. Buehneman's No More Tears

It is with deep sorrow and broken hearts that we inform all who loved and cared for our little Adam that he passed away today at 16y 1m. Adam was born 6/8/95. The day we brought him home to our family, he filled our hearts with joy. He will missed greatly.



If it should be that I grow weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.
You will be sad, I understand.
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day, more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.
We've had so many happy years.
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so;
The time has come -- please let me go.
Take me where my need they'll tend,
And please stay with me till the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Please do not grieve -- it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years;
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said " it's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.

Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me....

My dear little Dusty has gone to God, unexpectedly… I am devasted… I surely knew I wouldn't be having him long, simply due to his advancing age, and some age-related conditions… I have to put pictures in my head from his puppy-hood... this was in his nursery, at your house, trying to get our attention, another one I only have in my head is when we brought him outside in his first days with us… it had been raining, and the water was still dripping from the trees… little Dusty tried to drink the water, straining to reach his head toward it, then confused when it fell on him… the second this year, playing outside with my granddaughter, Selena… I'm going to miss all his unique little ways… kissed my chin to the end… loved to play, always brought toys to you, and could catch in the air better than any dog I've had… enjoyed being pet so much, particularly on his tummy or chest, that he couldn't just relax with it - he had to kiss you as if to thank you, as you were doing it… so trusting… loved that boy so much…
thank you for having brought Dusty into my life…

Am/Can Silver Trails Dream Catcher

07/20/2014 by Dee Silverstein

Yesterday, I am sad to report that our beautiful Bucky, Ch Silver Trails Dream Catcher, co-owned with Michael Pinckus of California, went to the Rainbow Bridge. All of Michael's shelties, except for our dear sweet Ransom, are now in sheltie heaven, Tawny, Sara, Scamp and Bucky. Bucky was my first and only AOC American Bred-By Champion and first Canadian Champion co-bred with Larry Blackburn. He did have a good long life and was very happy to be living with Michael. We will miss you Bucky.
