We have established a memorial donation in remembrance of our beloved Dante. From July 1st until December 31st, 2014, for every pet sitting/dog walking visit we complete, $.50 will be donated to Lost Angels Animal Rescue in Dante’s name.
Lost Angels is a wonderful pet rescue organization based in Tampa and is the reason we found Dante. Most of you probably never heard the story on how we came across Dante, so here’s a short story:
“Dante came into our lives shortly after losing our beloved Ashley in 2005. We’ll never forget the first time we saw him at a Lost Angels adoption even at Petco. He arrived in what looked like an SUV only occupied by big dogs, including the driver! We watched as one by one they came out and were placed in crates. Lastly, out came Dante, a mere 12 weeks old placed in a pen. Amidst all of the barking and excitement, Dante sat quietly in the middle of the pen, just observing his surroundings. A long story short, we fell in love with Dante and adopted him that day and we were so blessed to have him in our lives. Dante was the smartest, most loving and amazing dog we’ve ever had, and there’s been a lot in our years. He was always happy to see people and never had an issue sharing his space and toys with our boarding guests. He was so gentle with the little ones (he was 80lbs) and knew exactly what to do with those that had any type of anxiety. It was amazing to watch his natural ambassador abilities. We could go on and on about Dante, he was a very special guy. Losing him to cancer just short of his 9th birthday was absolutely heartbreaking but we’ll never forget our handsome boy. We’ve since adopted a new pup named Zeus, whom we know Dante sent our way as he has many of the same qualities we saw in Dante. We are looking forward to our new adventures with Zeus and will forever have Dante in our hearts.”
