Danny (Race Name: Dan Miller)

It was with great sadness that I helped my Danny to the Bridge on Thursday. :cry1


Danny came into my life 7 ½ years ago after his racing career was ended due to a leg injury.


Danny brought joy & happiness into my life every day! He never asked for anything, always waited his turn when it came to sharing with the rest of the crew & he would smile if you just said his name. He bounced with joy when I would come home from work & when I was making his meals. He was the BEST cuddler in the world!


Danny LOVED his sofa! If others were on the sofa already Danny would find even the smallest space where he might fit & with determination he would set out to fit into that space….most times he succeeded even if it did not look comfortable……we used to joke that when Danny looked in the mirror he saw a Chihuahua. LOL! Dan was also an expert at roaching!


Next to the sofa, Danny LOVED his toys & made it his mission to steal as many toys as he could & take them to the back room…….he would sneak into a room, look around, steal a toy & run like crazy down the hallway…..we would laugh watching this little game.


Danny was also instrumental in bringing some wonderful people into my life.


Sadly, a month ago, Danny was diagnosed with osteo in the same leg that ended his racing career. Danny continued to live his life with joy & silliness even when I know he had to be in great pain. He was courageous & he never complained. If there is anything positive to come out of this time it is the lesson Danny taught by example that no matter what life hands you, life can still be lived with joy.


Danny brought so much joy, laughter & love into my life. My heart is broken & I will miss him very much. I pray that my doodle bug is happy & running with joy at the Bridge.

How blessed you were to have shared your life with such a wonderful dog who shared his joy so effortlessly. He will leave a huge empty space in your home and heart, but his love will be with you always.

I'm so sorry you lost your precious Danny.

Another beautiful pup lost to this horrid disease. I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet Danny.


Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling

From glen to glen, and down the mountain side

The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying

'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow

Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow

'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow

Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.



Run free Danny, run free... :gh_run

"....no matter what life hands you, life can still be lived with joy...."

What a wise and loving soul- what beautiful warm eyes. My heart is breaking for you. My deepest sympathy. Danny has set an example for all of us and I for one will try and never forget him or his message.
