Darby came into our lives 13-1/2 years ago. He was a little guy that everyone said would never "grow" into his ears, but he grew into the hearts of everyone who met him.
We will never forget his love of soccer or the wag of his tail as he waited patiently for his daily "treat" from his friend, Renee.
As his body aged, his heart and soul remained young. This truly made it ever more difficult to watch him leave us.
As we say our final good-bye, we know that Darby is at peace and is once again playing soccer over the Rainbow Bridge.
Lynne and Vi





When God had made the earth and sky,
The flowers and the trees.
He then made all the animals,
The fish, the birds and bees.
And when at last He'd finished,
Not one was quite the same.
He said, "I'll walk this world of mine,
And give each one a name."
And so He traveled far and wide
And everywhere He went,
A little creature followed Him
Until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth
And in the sky and sea.
The little creature said, "Dear Lord,
There's not one left for me."
Kindly the Father said to him,
"I've left you to the end.
I've turned my own name back to front
And called you dog, my friend"

It breaks my heart to have to make this page!!
I dedicate it to my friends, Lynne and Vi. as a memorial
to their wonderful boy.
Darby practically grew up in my yard, since there's only a fence separating our two backyards...
Darby and Jessie loved to chase each other along the fence and bark (Just like he used to do with Misty).
Every day, Darby, Huey, Lucky and Cory waited alongside the fence for their cookies...
When they saw me come out in the yard, the barking and yapping started-
Jessie wasted no time to join all of them.
I remember, a few years back, Darby found a hole underneath my fence.  When I got up he was in my yard.  
Poor little guy, he was so lost and had no idea how he was going to get back home..
We miss you very much "big guy"...I know Misty and you will, once more, have a ball together.
