Brenda's Sanctuary

I haven't written on these pages in a long time and so much has happened that I'm not sure where to start.  Sometimes I wish I could go back in time to better days but I'm afraid if I did I would have to live through so many things again and I really don't want that either.

I had to say goodbye to my best friend on Aug 23, 2001. Elliott Ness, my Great Dane, died at 5:15 a.m. that morning. He is missed so very much. I know, I still have 8 more dogs and in the coming years, I will be losing more of them. They are all my friends and have helped me through some really bad times. My dogs are always there when I need them and let me cry without saying anything to me about it. They have helped me deal with my grief over my daughters.

My husband decided to get another Great Dane puppy. I was against it because I was afraid. I don't want to continue going through pain every time I lose another one. However, he also is dealing with the pain of losing Elliott and this is something he needs. I know I will love the new baby and he will be a part of our family just like our others. We have found another fawn male puppy and will be picking him up in another 2 weeks. We have already named him and are looking forward to bringing him home. His name is Einstein and I welcome him to our family.


On September 11, 2001 the USA was attacked. I, like so many of you, have watched in horror and have spent most of my time in front of the television crying for so many souls. I am thankful I have my dogs now more than ever. Again, they will be helping me deal with this new pain.
