My beloved Willie, you left my life much too soon. The measure of your life is not in years but in how much you changed my life forever. Your life was a precious gift and I've learned well the lessons you taught. Though you are gone from my side, I carry you in my heart. You will always be my boy.

Send us your memorial to post to this page.

We at MSR were proud to have been able to give Raleigh our best effort and three wonderful weeks, happy to be a playful puppy [ Raleigh's Story ]. Raleigh broke our hearts but we would still make the same decisions about his care and any of the other dogs entrusted to us. Farewell Raleigh; you will stay in our hearts forever.

Wally Aubin
June 24, 1995 - January 22, 2007
Adopted January 19, 2004
Wally, you were the light of our lives. You waited for us everyday at grandpa and grandma's and would light up the room when we came in. [his story]

He had many tricks, his favorite being 'Sad Wally', where he would put his paw over his face. He even taught our Tuffy, 17 year old Sheltie cross this same trick.

Wally was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer in August, 2006. He put up a very valiant fight, which he lost on January 22, 2007. We tried to keep him as comfortable as we could for as long as we could, but the pain became too much for all of us.

Wally, we'll see you again at the Rainbow Bridge. Take care my little friend.
