Hey there

I wish to beg everyone’s pardon as I unburden my heavy heart…

Today my lovely bride and I had to put Mz Ashley down…She was nearing her 12 birthday and was having Chronic back issues and was dealing with a lot of pain and losing the use of her back legs…

Ashley was not a great dog…she was hard head, and opinionated, listened like a rock and was constantly begging for food and attention…

Ashley was a great companion…the 10 years I spent living in Montana away from my family she was my constant companion 24/7….
She played a huge role in my recovery from my brain tumor surgery…

She was a gracious host sharing her house with many guest…Chole, Koda and Gracie, Ben and Jasmine , and KP…to name a few..

She love her time on the Ranches we fished on…and rolling in cow patties and gut piles, and after birth…you know all those neat things you find on ranches in Montana…


She loved Bailey Bob ..my daughter in laws chocolate Lab (he passed in December)

She loved being the playground monitor for the pre-school in Sheridan and loved the Sunday school kids and their cookies in Twin Bridges…

Her love of bacon was almost legendary in the Ruby valley…I could not go into any café in the valley and the cook would have Ashley’s bacon on the flattop before I sat down…

For now there is a hole in my heart that will take sometime to heal…and maybe some day another pup will come along and find a place in my heart but for now I have my memories and tears…

Please forgive my over abundance of photos….

This was taken this past April…11 and still by my side giving advice

First time in a long time I've wanted a dog. That very type of companionship is so wonderful. I bet she's bragging right now about how cool her companion was while she was there with you.

She may have passed from your sight, but she's still going strong through these memories.

Be happy she shared her time with you,many you had someone who made your time together so unforgettable.

Your pain is all too familiar. I'm terribly sorry for your loss, and for the recent loss of Bailey Bob.

Here's one from a few years back. Such a fine companion for you through all those times when you most needed one.

Godspeed Mz. Ashley.

Fudge.

As soon as I saw the words Mz Ashley I thought of bacon. Some sort of reverse pavlovian deal.

Sorry for your loss Ben and thank you for sharing her life with us. For some reason the rascally dogs seem to have the most personality and embed themselves deepest in our hearts.

When I think of Mz Ashley I think of your times on the water with her by your side. I think of all the pictures you have put up of some delicious looking concoction slowly cooking on your smoker knowing full well it's going to end with Mz Ashley getting to sample some and washing it down with a piece of bacon ! Sorry for your loss,Ben.
