Philip Gregory Omer ~ Loving Husband,Father,Brother and Friend

As many of you know Audra lost her wonderful father on December 23, 2008. Mr. Omer was a amazing man and loved by everyone whom he came in contact with. He touched the lives of so many. I have put together a slide below so that we can share with everyone a few memories of Mr. Omer. He and Mrs. Nancy proudly adopted Jimmy, a chocolate lab from the Barnwell County Animal Shelter and he also proudly drove and rode with Audra on many transports. He attended every function in SC and supported Audra all the way in everything that she did. She is truly going to miss him, as we all are, and I ask that you all please keep her in your prayers hoping she can somehow find peace and strength.

You will see pictures of him with Mrs. Nancy, Audra, some of his many friends, and even spending time with Audras dogs!!

Little Mia and Hudson (aka Cooner) ~ SC Babies at Home in NY!!

Little Mia and Hudson (aka Cooner) were both rescued from a SC high kill shelter. They came up just weeks apart and their new parents fell in love with them BOTH at first sight!!! They have other fur-brothers and sisters and we are fortunate to see them alot in NY.

Little Mia.... Rescued from a SC high kill shelter!! This is when she was just weeks old and Dawn brought her north in just a little carry bag she was so tiny! Her "owner" in SC had bought her at the flea market and put her outside and she was bumping into things so they assumed she was blind and they called the vet to have her euthanized. She was just weeks old!!! Dr. Miller called me on that weekend to please come and get her and well over to Barnwell I went and she came north to find her forever home. Oh and by the way, she wasnt a "cocker" like the lady had told the vet and she is definately not BLIND!

This was Cooner in the shelter in Barnwell SC, scared and looking for a family, well he has found it now!!!

Mia and Hudson Now with one of their fur-brothers Luke, Their mommy Madeline and Papa George!

Lucy ~ The New Graduate!!!

"Lucy"~also previously known as "Jazzy" was a rescue from South Carolina. When I first got "Jazzy" she was all grown out and just a huge puffball! We went straight to the groomer as she had fleas to no end and she got herself the full spa treatment from my Aunt Jeanette! We then headed to Dr. Millers office in Barnwell , SC for her shots and well later that night we headed to NJ. A long trip for little "Jazzy", but she found herself the perfect home with the Salmnons!!! Below you will see the new "Lucy" graduating from her puppy kindergarten!!! She has found her furever home and we are soooo happy for the Salmon family.
