They say memories are golden well maybe that is true. I never wanted memories I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you, a million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane, I’d walk the path to heaven and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Rest in Peace my sweet Spooky




You came to me when I was sad
But with your love you made me glad

Always remember: I love you

Love, Mommy and Comet

Our sweet baby girl, we miss you everywhere….laying next to our chairs, going out with dad every morning to get the paper, under mom’s feet when she’s cooking, snoozing in the back seat when we go to the lake.  We’ll miss you forever in our hearts.  You came to us so sick with heartworms, but we got you back to being brand new.  We were blessed to have five great years with you until another sickness came that we couldn’t fix.  Now you truly are in your forever home, and we’ll be a family there again someday.  Save us a pair of wings!    We’ll always love you!    Mom & Dad Hermeyer

Shuggie Bear

She came into my life
One bright and sunny day
The moment that I saw her
She stole my heart away

She was so frail and thin
From being locked away
I looked into her eyes
and gave up my heart that day

I gently put my hand down
To let her catch my scent
She knew that very moment
That my love was heaven sent

For ten long years I’ve loved her
I gave her all I had
We’ve had a bond unbroken
Through the good times and the bad

Our love was exponential
It grew for all those years
Today my heart was broken
My eyes filled up with tears

I held her in my arms
And whispered soft and low
I knew this was the right thing
But my heart kept screaming, no

The Doctor did her job
The shot worked very fast
I could feel her breathing slow
And her heartbeat stopped at last

My Sugar has crossed “The Rainbow Bridge”
To the fields where all pets go
To romp and play, for all their days
And wait for their masters to show

When once again I’ll hold her close
And tell her of my love
And we’ll walk the fields together
Through the heavens up above

All her pain has ended now
and mines about to start
I’m glad I have her sister, Maya
To help mend my broken heart

Shuggie Bear, we miss you every waking moment.
We’re taking care of Maya until the day she comes to join you.

I’ll love and miss you forever.


Rest in Peace Shuggie Bear

especially his family. We can only hope to see him again when we, too, “Cross that Rainbow Bridge.

When I think of how lucky we were to find our angel, Bear, it brings a tear to my eyes. He was the only dog I’ve ever met, that just by looking into his warm brown eyes, you could actually see his kind, sweet soul. My husband
and I fell in love at first sight, when Sandy brought him out to meet us from the rescue at the age of 3. It took him a month or so to realize we were going to be his forever home, but once he did, he let the spoiling
and his other four-legged siblings would get wrapped Christmas gifts each year, and be showered with love every day of the year. Bear’s passing was, and still is, quite a blow to all of husband, myself, and his 6
year old brother, Rocky. We feel our loss every day since he left us for Heaven. We think of him daily and are so grateful to have had 10 wonderful years with our gentle giant…Until we meet again, my sweet, sweet boy….

Love, Mom and Dad (Michelle and Lance)

On March 14, 2000, someone put the most beautiful American Eskimo dog, Maxie (10 months old) in our fenced yard. We did not want him because we had a dog. No one claimed him for two weeks. We fell in love with him and kept
him for 13 years. Maxie enjoyed playing with Lady (yellow lab/terrier dog) for almost five years (Lady crossed the Rainbow Bridge on September 1, 2004). We then adopted Toby, American Eskimo dog, in December 2004 from Eskie
Connection. Toby enjoyed played with Maxie, too. It was very sad that the whipworms damaged his intestines as he had an irritable bowl disorder and it changed to gastric adenocarcinoma. He lost eight pounds (cachexia) in
four weeks. We worked very hard to save him, but had to let him go since he was in so much pain and suffering. We love and miss him very much forever.

In Memory of our Sweet Maxie, Pam and


Rest in Peace Maxie

Princess crossed the “Rainbow Bridge” and will not be forgotten. Princess (and Prince, who is still with his family ) came from Oklahoma at the age of 13. Their original owner went to a residential home and could not take care

To our beloved Angel, Corky. You were in our life only a short time and yet you gave to us a life time of love. When you looked at us with those big, sweet loving eyes, our hearts would melt. You trusted us so much and knew

love once more.

Our “Eskie Spy Dog,” Kip

We adopted Kip from AER 11 ½ years ago. He won our hearts from the moment we met him, when he kissed his dad on the nose during our visit to the vet where he was being treated for heartworms and kennel cough. On July 31, 2013,
Kip crossed “The Rainbow Bridge,” after a rather unexpected turn for the worse on the previous afternoon. He had been in declining health for awhile, but was joyous and loved life until the very end. He lived 14 ½ years,
at best guess. We feel an irreplaceable loss and will miss his thousands of kisses dreadfully (our “Lickenstein” dog!) and “Eskie talk” forever. The many “bunny runs” on which he dragged Mom along in earlier years, the
many weekend cooking afternoons spent begging Dad for “chick-chick” and steak, playing hide-and-seek around the kitchen island, “hootenahs” rolling on the bed and the rugs, watching him stand guard at his window a few feet
away—all of these moments will be forever treasured. His memorial is next to that window, where he can still bark at cars 5 seconds after they have safely passed out of his sight, and then turn to us with a proud look.
He was always a gentleman, playful and loyal, truly the perfect dog. To our “beautiful boy,” with heartfelt love and gratitude, from Mom and Dad.


Rest in Peace Kip




Willy (“The Goat”)

Our little 15.5 year old Willy went to the Rainbow Bridge on September 9. He was rescued from the streets of Chicago at eight months old, flown to St. Louis where we fostered and adopted him. He became blind with a
genetic disease later in life. He always rode in the front seat of the car, often leaving his mom in the back. Willy will be missed by all who knew him. Shelley and Rick


Rest in Peace Willy




Jake Grady – A Loyal Eskie Remembered

Not much was known about Jake’s young years. He was found wandering the streets in the Gasconade area of South St. Louis and ended up in the Gasconade Pound where he was rescued by American Eskimo Rescue. When he was placed
with my husband and I at 2-3 years old, he was jittery and very afraid of children. After a lot of love and reassuring though, he settled down to be a beautiful, sweet dog. He often received comments from strangers about
how beautiful he was. Although the male in him wanted to be macho and he felt he should growl at other male dogs, he would act shocked if they made an attempt to bite him. He would come whining to his Mama as if to say:
“Are they supposed to do that?” Thus, I nicknamed him “Baby Jake.” After all he never had a babyhood so he deserved one the rest of his life, right? He was always my Baby Boy and I am so glad I could be there for him this
summer when his illness and subsequent death from cancer took him from me. It was such a shock because Jake was healthy all his life and I just thought he would never die. Jake was there for me through many trials and errors
over the past 12 plus years. May God bless him and keep him close. He will never be forgotten — a great part of me went with him. Mama P. Grady

Rest in Peace Jake




Jack – One of the Fab Four

AER would like to say good-bye to Jack, one of the Fab Four, and sibling to Micky, Sam, Reggie (gone too soon), Peggy Sue, and Mother Molly. Jack was adopted by a wonderful family who took care of him. Jack will be missed.

Rest in Peace Victoria



Frankie in his younger days. What a beauty. He was deaf and had limited sight, but that did not keep him from enjoying life. He left me on March 14, 2014, because of an abdominal tumor that took his quality of life away from
him. Suka, Luke, and me, (MOM Pat) really miss you Frankie. We think he was about 16 or 17 years old. (Thank you, Pat, for giving Frankie his forever home – he will be missed and was a very special boy.)


Rest in Peace Frankie




Our Beloved Juneau

We adopted our beloved Juneau when he was three years old. The joy and bright spirit he brought into our home can’t be measured. His nick-name was “Juniehugs” because of all the hugs he to gave us. There is no pain greater
than the loss of love. Junie was loved by all who came to know him but especially so by Corinna and Jimmy. We will keep his memories alive and cherish him in our hearts forever. Greg, JoAnn, Corinna and Jimmy


Rest in Peace Juneau





Casper 1999-2014

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories
I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I’d walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
Kim Stuckmeyer-Bruce


Rest in Peace Casper

Thank you to the Mr. & Mrs. Berger for giving Jordan a wonderful home.

Sweet Jordan will not be forgotten.

We rescued “Candy” from a shelter in Indiana in 2013 when she was ten years young. She gave us all her love from the first day. She was a fantastic girl and so smart. Although we only had the loving and sweet girl
for a short time we will never forget her or stop loving her; she made our lives so much better. There is a big empty place in our lives now but the love she gave us while with us will help fill that void. She is in a better
place now and no longer hurting. We love and miss you “Candy.”

Thank You. Sue and Larry Watson


Rest in Peace Candy




Cody (Bear)

We will forever have him in our hearts and forever be grateful to the American Eskie Rescue of St. Louis for caring and bringing Cody into our family.

Schnitzy crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Christmas Day. Thank you to Troy and Ramona for taking care of Schnitzy after she came to St. Louis. Schnitzy was nearly 20 years old, and she came to St. Louis with her daughter, Corky,
who has since crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Corky was about 15 year old when she passed. These two girls touched the lives of many and will never be forgotten. AER STL


Rest in Peace Schnitzy





Rocky was my gift from heaven when I needed to smile again. He brought joy and love to whomever he came in contact with. He was a true Rockstar. I took him every day to the rehab center to visit my mom. Nurses, CNA’s and others
there for treatment would make sure they stopped him for his daily pets and snuggles. He ate up the attention. I was so very proud and happy to give him that purpose in life. I can’t thank AER STL enough for the trust in
us to give him his forever home. I knew when I saw his picture Rocky was supposed to be here for a reason. Rocky was taken way too soon from us but I’m sure he has another mission somewhere. I will see him again and we
are going to miss him dearly. I’m so glad we have our girls North and Shimmer. They are feeling the grief also. They really bonded with Rocky. We will miss Rocky very much. Bill and Patti


Rest in Peace Rocky




Prince and Princess

Prince and Princess were a wonderful pair of beautiful Eskies. Prince and Princess were a great addition to our family and we will always have fond memories of both of them. We will miss them dearly. Keith and Trish

Our Darling Chloe
There once was a little black puppy that was taken to a kill shelter. The shelter called Shelley with American Eskimo Rescue and said they had an Eskie puppy. Shelley picked her and the puppy was black
(no Eskie is black). Shelley called me and I picked up the puppy and immediately adopted her to a person who wanted a small dog. Two weeks later the owner returned the puppy. That began our love affair. I contacted AKC
and was told she was a Pomeranian. Chloe was my best friend and we shared many wonderful years together. I trained her and she won three obedience titles from AKC and one year the number two obedience Pomeranian in AKC.
We visited schools and gave programs on pet responsibility. We also visited assisted living homes and brought many smiles to the residents; everyone said how cute the black puppy was, and she was always the star of the
We were inseparable; she was always there for me. My heart still aches. A virus affected her kidneys and she passed away last February. Every morning I kiss her little black marble urn and tell her I love her.
When things are not going well I talk to her as if we were together; Chloe always listened as though she understood me. Sometimes I feel her jumping into bed and I reach to pet her. We were together 14 wonderful years.
I will always be grateful to American Eskimo Rescue for the joy they helped bring into my life. Someday I will get another little puppy but I am not ready. I know that I can’t replace her. We love and miss you, Chloe. Jane
and James

Rest in Peace Frosty Paws






Tigo came to AER a very sick little boy. Though he was old, blind and sick, he had a great deal of courage and a strong will. We came to love him very much in the short time that he was with us, but he seemed to capture the
hearts of everyone he came in contact with. He was fearless when we took him for walks for he loved the great outdoors where he could smell the air and feel the grass beneath his feet. At night he was cuddled, showered
with kisses then tucked into bed. When you picked him up he made just the cutest little noises looking at you in such a special way as if he could really see you! Tigo had a corkscrew tail that was a joy to see when it
was wagging. For Tigo didn’t just wag his little “piggy” tail for nothing, but when it did you knew you hit a home run in his book! We’d like to think that his last months were the happiest he had been since he was a puppy!
He fit in with his foster family like he had always been here. Tigo knew he was loved and we’d like to think we spoiled him a bit! He passed peacefully and left our lives as gently as he entered it. We love you little Tigo!
Thank you for redefining “special needs” for us! Thank you for enriching us beyond money, loving us beyond measure. Go play little guy, you are free at last to run! Love, Holly, Rob, Bo and Shelby


Rest in Peace Tigo






We lost our precious Emmy to doggie heaven due to chronic kidney failure. She was 14. Emmy was such a wonderful friend and we will miss her. Thank you for what you do and we appreciate that you rescued her so we could give

Rest in Peace Emmy






I was blessed to be able to have Venus in my life. When we got her I promised this would be her forever home and I kept my promise. She was the most loving, friendly and beautiful dog I have ever had. I know she is happy now

Diamond came into our life when she was six months old and she changed our lives. Diamond was such a good girl; she loved being with us very much and loved our Grandkids. She also loved to go for walks and riding in a car.
Whenever we left the house, I would grab her to-go-bag and she knew she could go with us. Diamond became a mother (or big sister) to our other dog, a cocker spaniel mix, named “Sable.” Some days Sable roams through the
house looking for Diamond. We miss Diamond very much. The Riley Family


Rest in Peace Diamond

Gypsy Strickland

Gypsy was only nine and a half years old when she crossed the rainbow bridge from kidney failure. I adopted her when she was five and a half. Even though she was blind she brought so much light and joy to everyone she knew.
Very sweet and loving and my very good friend, princess, and puppy. Gypsy is so very missed.


Rest in Peace Gypsy Strickland






Mitzie enjoyed almost six full years with us. During that time, she
enjoyed taking walks, romping in her yard, and chasing birds. She
always made sure that we said good night to her before going upstairs
to bed. She loved it when her daddy picked her up and held her. She
would snuggle under my chin, and then gnaw on my chin! She would try
to act tough by giving us her ‘wolf snarl’, but she never bit us. She
was such a sweet dog.  Vickie and I are grateful that you took a
chance on us adopting Mitzie. Our sorrow will pass, but we will never
forget her.  Mitzie will be missed.  Tom and Vickie


Rest in Peace Mitzie






Lacy came to us from a foster home in Indiana. Her life started rough. By the time we got her she was 10 months old and she had already lost her right front leg . Despite her rough start, she remained a spunky fighter.  She loved life. She loved to bark at other dogs and ping’d whenever there was no dog to bark at. She loved flip chews and would actually flip them over her head when excited.She loved to play,chase rabbits and go for walks. Lacy had many aliases. Jo dog, tripod, momma’s precious were just a few.  Amazingly, she responded to all of them.  We got to enjoy Lacy for over 14 years; our two boys grew up with her. We have many pictures,  videos, and good memories.  We also have one huge hole in our hearts. Rest up, Lacy. We’ll see you soon!



Rest in Peace LACY







Goodbye to Scout

The first night we fostered you, you jumped on our bed and slept by our feet. We knew we weren’t supposed to let you sleep on our bed, but neither of us could tell you “no.” We looked at each other and laughed and went to sleep. You slept by our sides and walked by our sides every day for the last eight years, never wanting to be too far away and always making sure to warn off strangers. As August, your dog walker, would say about your bossiness, “Scout gave them the business.”  You had a big personality and unconditional love to give to your family. You will never be forgotten.  Love you always, Sarah and Fernando



Rest in Peace SCOUT

You will stay near me until we meet at the Rainbow Bridge and forever in my heart. We miss you my boy, Love Momma, Papa & Nick
