This page is dedicated to Rauree Kimber Nichols, our 7-year old basenji who passed away last week. She didn’t go down without a fight though - she stayed strong and fought against the odds, which were all against her, for a month and some until the very end. In one word, she’s a fighter - but she was so much more…
She had the biggest and best personality - she loved food and chowing down on bones, going on nature hikes, chasing all the squirrels and lizards that crossed her path, running in circles at top speed, back-seat driving, feeling the wind hit her face and listening to birds in the park, talking back in the form of the cutest “Barooooos”, and snuggling/spooning/sleeping with her brother and Moms. She was perfect and she will be missed every single day.
We wanted to have a place to post & keep all of her memories - photos, video clips, stories, etc. where we and others can enjoy them and remember all the time what an amazing companion she was. So, this is that place. Feel free to follow this blog in memory of Rauree.
We love you, Snores. <3 Thank you for bringing us so much happiness and putting huge smiles on our faces every day.
Rauree’s humans made a page dedicated to their lovebug to remember her and the good times. I’m excited to see how she lived her wonderful life with them!
RIP babygirl <3
This puppy fever is going to turn into an infection. Halp.
You want help to turn it into an infection? Okay here you go:
Hey southernsnowdogs are we helping yet??
You guys suck.
Grace, is this helping? I’m sure it must be the perfect cure all for puppy fever. We don’t want another puppy. Not at all.
It doesn’t help that I’m friends with so many show breeders on facebook and they recently had litters and ugh.

Hi, excuse me. Yes.
It’s so crazy to me how much Bryan, my fiancé, loves Kaeda. He didn’t really want to get a dog and the second we signed on our apartment, I got Kaeda. He hated her. The first day by herself, he came home to poop smeared all over the floor (I kept her in an x pen with newspaper on the floor and she managed to move it throughout the kitchen even with her crate inside!). For so long he just hated her. Wouldn’t even pet her because of what she did and the accidents she had and the chewing.
Now he worries about her more than me. He’s the one that doesn’t want her to stay in a kennel because she’ll be lonely in her cage at night. He worried more about her during the chicken jerky scare. He and I BOTH cried (well he teared up while I straight up sobbed) when she got spayed. He gets so sad when he reads an article on animal abuse and gives Kaeda a kiss and hug and says, “I will never let this happen to you.”
It’s just so insane to me how an animal, a pet, can dig her way deep into his heart without even trying.
Is there a cure for puppy fever? This is awful. xD
