  • It feels just like yesterday that I said goodbye to my sweet boy Duma. He was the first dog that I ever owned. We both grew up together and Duma was my constant companion through the ups and downs of life for 10 amazing years. I will always remember his love for yellow tennis balls, roast beef, car rides, his crooked smile, walks at the dog park and listening to Ella Fitzgerald. He loved and protected his "people" with a passion that I have never seen. Your family misses you Duma! A piece of our hearts went with you when you flew free to heaven.

  • I had to let my little buddy go this week. After several days, I'm still not sure I have adequate words to express how deeply I miss this sweet girl. This is Ziva, my constant companion for nearly a third of my life. She stayed by my side (and sleeping on my pillow) through a wedding, law school, three babies, a bar exam, a divorce, the addition of a cat and two more dogs, and at least half a dozen moves. Her resiliency and loyalty was matched only by her desire to protect "her" kids, and maybe her seismic snoring. Here's to her full life of hoarding shoes, barking at dogs ten times her size, and showing unconditional love without hesitation. You will always be in my heart.

    Photographer: Emily Arneson

  • This is Ketchum Hell. We call him Ketch. He is a Southhill border collie. How he got his name: I lived in Ketchum, ID for 20 years. The local saying was "Ketchum Hell...we can't even find them" and they were talking about us locals.

  • Brownie was a chained dog I rescued the summer of '06. He had no food or water, and God knows how long he'd been out there. I finally had the guts to confront the "owners," who simply said I could have them as they forget to feed him, nor wanted him. He was feral from his early days of neglect, but with lots of love and patience has turned into the best dog I've ever had. Brownie has had a good life. He's stayed at the Davenport several times, ran on the beach on the Pacific Ocean, swam countless times in my dad's pool, hiked with me all around the area, and was there looking over my daughter the day she was born. He continues to protect her, now 6, to this day. Brownie recently was diagnosed with a very aggressive bone cancer, and endured having his front left leg amputated as well as 5 rounds of chemo. He has been so tough through it all. He's still so happy, every day, just to be with his family. Here he is on February 1, 2016, after he completed chemo, in Spokane WA.

  • This is Lola, taken recently. When I first saw her back in March, she was a crying, terrified, clearly indoor cat who had been tossed outside and abandoned by my neighbors and was crying day and night to get back in. After a week of coaxing this heartbroken, shy creature, she finally came running to me and has been warm, loved and fed ever since. It's been a fairly slow process for her to learn to trust completely, but she's become part of our family and converted two cat "dislikers" into her slaves... I mean family.

  • This is Dusty with my husband Roger. We are on the Bremerton Ferry in early December, after visiting our children and grandchildren in Port Angeles. He's ten pounds of fearless mutt. He's a rescue dog from the Spokanimal and experiencing all the delights of a northwest winter. At just over a year old he has learned to 'sit', 'shake', and 'down' (on his belly)... INSIDE the house. Outside the house he becomes deaf and turns into a traveling man. Thunder and lightning intrigue him, all other dogs must want to be his friend, because he thinks he's brilliant.
