Melody was truelly apart of the family, I was a year old when my parents gave her to us as a christmas gift, when I think of my childhood I think of her, she was alway with us, she went on every family vacation, and when my parents would say I was the baby of the family I would say no I'm not, Melody is.  She will never be forgotten, we love you Melody and still Miss you so much.
Holly just like Melody was truelly apart of the family, she went on every family vacation, She was the most loyal companion, to all of us,  when I hurt my back at home and my son called 911, she knew I was hurt and would not let the peramedics near me, Wade had to lock her in his room so that I could get the help I needed, But to Holly's tribute she didn't know these men and she was willing to lay down her life to protect me.  Holly has been there every minute, watching over and protecting all three of my boy's, when they think back on their childhood they will most likely have fond memories of her.  She will never be forgotten either, we love you Holly and still Miss you so much.
This is one of my favorite pictures of Melody with me holding her shortly after we got her, she is still a puppy taken in Jan.1965
We think these two pictures  were taken on Easter 1967
Camping 1968, Melody went everywhere with us
When we went Boating we had to put a life vest on Melody too, or she would jump in the water without one just to be with us.  Funny little doggy! This picture was taken we think in summer 1971
Melody with My mom. Melody is starting to show her age, cute little white face. Picture taken we think in Summer 1973
