and our only surviving Golden born July 27, 2000
Parker was born on July 27,2000.

11 years, 7 months of energy
We lost Parker after 3 weeks of knowing
he had cancer. He got lots of love and treats those last few weeks
and we will miss him so. He was the only Golden at Taylor House that
we had to train as a puppy at 7 weeks.
Even after 8 weeks of training Parker
could not resist stealing muffins from the guests. He loved chasing
any type of ball and always had a mind of his own, but a heart of gold.
He greeted everyone with a wag and a hope of getting a treat in return.
Always so optimistic in everything he did.

|In 2007, we had
to say goodbye to our good friend and companion Wags. She was a beauty, as
Daryl told her many times - that face, those wonderful eyes, and her
unusually thick ears. She adored having people pet her, and had her way of
saying "Don't stop." She was a skilled and persistent beggar, and really
knew how to work the breakfast room. And she certainly enjoyed the comfort
of a good sofa, whether a Victorian antique, or a plush modern version.
Most of all, she loved being at home with her people and Parker.
Loving God, you have created the world and populated it with an abundance
of marvelous creatures, each unique. Receive Wags, your loving creature,
into the courts and gardens of your heavenly dwelling place. Let her heart
and soul ring out in eternal joy and play with you. Amen.

11 years of joy
Wags' mother and Parker's grandma.
Missy was our pumpkin--Daryl's pal and
constant companion on his rounds of our
Bed and Breakfasts. She couldn't wait
to bounce out the door and jump into the
van to accompany him on the early morning
chores or organ practice at various
churches. She endured Parker's constant
taunting, but protected him and Wags from
other dogs on our walks around Jamaica Pond.
Missy totally enjoyed breakfast with
guests every morning and watching The
Ellen Degeneres Show with Dave.
We miss her dearly.
Corey was the original
12/1988 - 05/2001
12 Years, 5 months of wisdom
He enjoyed greeting guests, but was not very
consistent. (Sometimes naps interfered.)
He was very gentle and quiet.
Occasionally, he barked.
(Perhaps once every other year.)
He LOVED to sleep and EAT!
Although usually the last one up
in the morning, he managed never
to miss breakfast. Even if doorways
were blocked, he'd go up one staircase
and down another to find
his way to the breakfast room.
Corey celebrated his 12th
December 13, 2000.
He was always great at parties.
Corey passed away on Sunday of
Memorial Day weekend,
May 27, 2001.
