Our Dear Friend Carol

With heavy hearts, we share with you that our dear friend, Carol Usher, has left this world too soon. We have mentioned her many times on our blog.

Mom and dad met Carol and her husband, David, at Barbara Curtiss's Barktoberfest in 2003.  Both mom and dad fell in love with Carol's Wooliedales  and bought two of them that very day.  Many more Wooliedales followed as the years went on.  
Carol was an extremely gifted and talented artist and a wonderful friend.  

She, David and Scuffer checked out the progress at the barn raising in Vermont this past September.  

We honestly cannot imagine this world without Carol in it.  She was a very special lady and  will be missed for a very long time.  

Our most special Wooliedales  - Maggie with her favorite Mr Carrot, Maggie with an ice cream cone teasing WoolieMitch, Macintosh Mitch with his favorite apples and MollyDale with her beloved tennis balls.  These are just a few. 
Each one of our many Wooliedales is so special to us ♥

Our hearts are breaking for David and Scuffer and our thoughts and prayers go out to them.  We pray that Carol's beloved Jesse was waiting to greet her at Rainbow Bridge.
We love you, Carol - forever and ever ♥

Mitch, Molly, angel Maggie, Sue and George

  21. Friends are hard to lose. It seems like they take a part of our hearts when they go. It is nice though that you will carry with you the great memories that were created when you shared your love of airedales. I love Mitch with the apple. Your friend could really make their personality come to life.
    Thanks for being a friend
