2003 - Milo
The Seidner family first met Milo as a puppy while on vacation in 1994. Out of all the puppies in the litter, he stood out. Milo had a special way of interacting differently with each member of the family - playful and rough with some, while gentle and loving with others. The decision to adopt Milo was an easy one.
In 1996 the Seidner family decided it was time for their family to build a new home. While waiting for their home to be built, they could not find a place to rent that would also allow Milo. The Seidner's just could not bear the thought of having to give Milo up. Thankfully, friends of the family said Milo could stay with them while their new home was being built.
Later that same year, Jim Seidner's father, Paul, became very ill and passed away. This loss was especially hard for Jim's mother Violet, who would now be alone. The Seidners knew in their hearts what they needed to do. Violet needed companionship and Milo was the most loving, devoted and compassionate friend they had ever known.
Violet accepted Milo into her home, though she had never before wanted a pet. But it was not long before Violet and Milo became very attached to one-another. The Seidners visit Violet and Milo frequently, but when it is time for them to leave, Milo always knows that his home is now with Violet. Though Violet had lost her soul mate, Milo had become her companion, friend, and confidante.Last modified on
