And God made the "beasts of the earth and after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.   Genesis 1:25
She gave us her all, we gave her our hearts
Tyler you will never be forgotten
Our good and faithful friend
Rest now my sweet girl, I will see you again

She was not a breed champion, she did not earn any agility, obedience, or herding titles.  She was not a therapy dog, nor was she a search and rescue dog, she had none of those titles we humans see as important.  No she had no titles given by us, hers was a title only God could have given, a title much greater than any human could have ever award her with.
You see from the time I held Tyler in the palm of my hand at just two days old I knew she was sent to us with a purpose.  She was to be our protector, to be our friend and to be our comforter.  She was sent to us to take care of us during a time when Shane and I were alone.  At a time when I had to go to work and leave my daughter home alone.  Tyler was there for Shane each and every day when she came home from school, she was there to comfort her when she felt alone, she was there to protect her from things that go bump in the night, she was there to love her.
Tyler was sent to us to make us laugh, to remind us of the simple things in life, long walks, playing with the hose, playing ball, and just enjoying each other.  She was always there, no matter how bad of a day we may have had Ty greeted us with a smile and a woo woo...she loved us unconditionally.
Tonight, just shy of 17 years we had to say goodbye to our Ty Ty.  She gave us her all, and never asked for anything in return except a good ear rub.
Genesis 1:26 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." Thank you Lord for giving us this duty, please give those strength to rule. In the name of Jesus Amen.
It is an honer and a great responsibility we have been given to look after the creatures God has given us...I will never take this responsibility lightly.
My heart is broken, my life has forever been changed, and I am a better person because my family and I were blessed by our beloved Tyler, may she rest in peace, our good and faithful friend.
She will be missed but never forgotten.
