We can remember the day you entered our lives. Kept in a kennel
for the first six months of your life with very little social stimulation,
you were a sight to behold. Fur stained yellow, ear mites, never
been on a lead, not housetrained...we truly didn’t know what we were
getting into. 12 years later when you died, we asked ourselves
how we could ever have questioned that you were always meant to be our
“our little girl”. Rest in peace sweet girl, we still
miss you as much today as ever. Devoted, kind, caretaker of the
Frenchie babies, our dear Cassie you will always be near to us in that
special place in our hearts. Till we meet again....
Born August 1988 - Died July 2004
You were our first “family” dog. Little did we know
how well you would live up to your name. Always the Princess,
always pampered and treated like the royalty that you truly were. As
you approached your golden years we hoped that you would live until the kids
got through high school and you did just that. Some of our favorite
memories include tolerating being dressed for Halloween and being paraded
around the neighborhood with your “pumpkin basket” collecting
treats. We will never forget you “butting” your head
against the kids to get their attention while they sat on the floor playing
video games. Being held and loved were your two most favorite
activities. We will rejoice in meeting you again at the Rainbow
Bridge, our dear, sweet girl. You’ll be in our hearts until the
end of time.

The best days of your life were living with us. Running in the
back yard, playing with Sister Belle, Paris, Tony, Jack, and Evie, and sleeping
in bed with Mom and Dad Neidig were some of your favorite things to do. We
relished in you receiving your championship and were glad that we were the
driving force behind you being shown. We will always remember your
sweet kind face and loving temperament. Even though you were not
able to spend your entire life at home with us, we do believe, in the short
period of time that we were blessed to have you, that you enjoyed life to its
fullest. God grant us the serenity to accept the tragedy of how
your life ended. Always our precious girl...your life changed
ours...we will meet again and hold you in our arms. This time, we
will never let go.

Briarpatch’s It’s All About Eve
From the day we brought you home, you were our special “cinnabon girl”. We had hoped you would be our first
French Bulldog bitch to achieve her AKC championship and provide our foundation for our breeding program, but
seizures at 9 months of age took away that dream. Instead that dream was replaced by the reality of one of the
most beautiful, fun, wonderful dogs to enter our lives. You lived each day to the fullest. Although you were a
“big girl”, you never seemed to care and gracefully took to managing the pack! Always the beta girl (the enforcer!),
you made sure that everyone else stayed in line. We will miss you keeping all of us in line. T-cell lymphoma of
the skin ended your life prematurely, but rest assured beautiful girl that you will not be forgotten. Every day we
remember you and although we miss you terribly, we know that you are looking down at us from above and watching to
make sure that we “toe the mark”. Rest in peace our beautiful girl. Until we meet again, our sweet memories
of you will keep in our hearts and we rejoice that we were able to share our lives with you. The dignity and
grace of how you lived and died will be with us always....
