Our Inspiration: He fit in my hand and it appeared that he couldn’t walk or see. Thank goodness that Dr. Ann was and had been our veterinarian for over a decade. I immediately drove him to where Dr. Ann was working, knowing that we had little time to spare if he was going to survive. Sure enough, this little tiny puppy needed two emergency blood transfusions. Little did we know, this would be the start of ten rewarding years with our “ACE” sharing our lives. Having five boys of our own, and our other dog Ezzy, adding Ace to our family was a match made in heaven. Our middle son, Colton, was the one that took to Ace, and truth be told it was probably Ace that choose him. As the years passed, a lasting bond between “the boy and his dog” developed into an amazing relationship that will be endured in our hearts forever.
Later, we added another addition to our large family named Roxy. Every summer as we sat outdoors, relaxing by the pool, we would watch Ezzy, Roxy, and Ace take their evening jog around the pool, putting Ace on the inside. After a few laps around the pool, Ezzy and Roxy would slowly ease in closer to the edge of the pool and Ace, just happy to be with the other dogs, would unknowingly fall right in the pool.
As time went on, our Ace endured surgeries to repair both of his knees. Never losing that spunk that kept us all entertained. Eventually, his boy, Colton left to join the United States Air Force. Ace was heartbroken. Every visit from Colton, would spark his inner puppy, and Ace didn’t realize that over time he was aging into a senior companion. Unfortunately, we lost our beloved Ezzy and Ace followed in her path not long after.
Throughout the years of bonding with Dr. Ann and having her care for our beloved companions, ACE’s Fund was created in memory of all the precious companions that are out there that may be in need of financial assistance. When we started this fund, we had no idea that it would continue to grow throughout the years. We would like to send our thanks to Dr. Ann & her staff at Sterling Pointe Veterinary Clinic for all the love & care they give every day to all of our beloved companions.
