Cause of Death: Complications from Bloat
Eiger was the first Bernese Mountain Dog to come into my life.
He was truly a gentle giant that was loved by all who met him. He was always finding himself in silly and awkward
situations: getting his head stuck in the seat belt while looking out the window, having snow slide off the roof
and landing on him, getting caught in an elevator door, just to name a few. He gave everyone many laughs, and loved
humans and berners unconditionally. He will always be remembered. Thank you Eiger, for being the founding father of Snowy Pines.

of Death: Anaphlayctic Shock from Bee Sting
you came from another land, it seems that you were made for us and our
family. Daily you brought us joy, love and laughter.
loved your " goofy" sense of humor and came to depend on that" woo woo
woo" bark of yours that told us you were so glad to see us . We
continue to look for you in the field with the blue football
your mouth. Spa days are not the same, without having to wash you
twice. You never did like to stay clean for very
long , did
you? The dirt hole under the deck was more fun anyway!
You warmed the hearts of family and friends who came to visit
at Snowy Pines, most who wanted to smuggle you in their cars to go
home. Your large size( 107 lbs) helped us to intercept these"
berner nappings." You inspired a young teen to
show dogs in AKC Jr. Showmanship. Bailey will
go into show rings into the future with you in her heart!
Life does not seem fair sometimes Roxie that you left us so early and
so suddenly. But we know you lived your life SO
big in the short time
you were here with us. We have come to know that it
how long you are here on earth but what you do with your" gifts" when
you are here. You used your " gifts " well Roxie and continue to hold a
special place in the hearts of all of us.
Your spirit lives on at Snowy Pines and we will be
grateful to Gro for this beautiful girl. Run Free Roxie girl and give
those bees a " what for!" We think of you everyday!

was a sad, gray day when we had to say good-bye to our Slider. The look
in his eyes and the laboring of his breathing told us it was time for
him to cross the Rainbow Bridge. We know he is now laughing as he
chases squirrels, fetches sticks and swims in the cold ocean water. We
feel blessed to have had the companionship and adventures with this
great dog for almost 13 years. He was often the only non-Bernese
Mountain dog at parades, gatherings and dog events. Yet, he was always
happy to travel, and socialize with all humans and canines (the pretty
Bernese girls were always his favorites). We have such fond memories of
his constant dog smile, and glistening topaz eyes. We will laugh for
years about his vivacious appetite for left over pizza not quite placed
far enough back on the counter, treasured Christmas ornaments off the
tree and his ability to squeek a stuffed animal for hours.
is not the same without Slider to open all the presents including those
that did not belong to him. We miss his barking voice singing at our
family birthday parties. Thank you Slider for never having a BAD day
and for loving us unconditionally.
you for showing Eiger, Zurich and Geneva the ropes and leaving each of
them with a small piece of your personality. You have truly touched all
of our hearts, and your zest and spirit will always be felt in our home.
