Welcome to Stewart Hills's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Stewart Hills
Our sweet Stewart was rescued from a Missouri Amish Puppy Mill on Cinco de Meyo, May 2005. All the puppies that day were given Spanish names to commorate that occasion. He was named "Eduardo". Stewart was used as breeding stock. That experience left him traumatized for the rest of his life. He was timid and afraid. He had PTSD. He was flown from Missouri to us in New Hampshire in June of 2005. He was the dearest little dog. He LOVED popsicles and knew at 11AM he would get his first treat of the day. If his "daddy" didn't notice the time Stewart would gently give him the "two paw push" to let him know it was popsicle time. He loved his rescue sister, Bonney. He loved his little bed and would curl up for his naps in it. He loved to play "run run" where he would run as fast as he could from one end of the room to the other with us pretending to chase him! He liked to take walks around the neighborhood and liked to get groomed and have "play time". He slept beside me for 12 1/2 years, curled into a ball under my right arm. I miss that little body next to mine. Last weekend, as Hurricane Irma was barreling toward us, Stewart became ill. Toward the end of the week I noticed he wasn't himself. Sunday night during the Hurricane Stewart had a seizure and a stroke. A horrible experience as we could not get him out to the emergency vet due to the curfew and the raging storm. First thing Monday morning we wrapped our sweet boy in a towel and brought him to the hospital. Stewart went to sleep in my arms as his daddy stroked his head and his sister Bonney looked on. Stewart will be returned to us with a paw print. My heart is broken. I am filled with grief. It happened so fast. He filled our lives with joy and I will miss him for the rest of my life. I love you so much Stewey!
