We are deeply saddend by the loss of Halmi Apanta rei aka Thelma. 2/24/07-9/3/18
With deep sadness and a heavy broken heart, my beautiful precious Thelma
(age 11 years, 7 months) crossed over the bridge. She is now with her best friends and partners
in crime Chester (Basset Hound) and Ava (Golden Retriever). Thelma loved her search and rescue training. emergically
and enthusiastically, Thelma enjoyed working with Chester and Ava on tracking assignments
Of course Thelma was advanced in her training and a .
She was an outstanding certified therapy dog too, quite the celebrity
with the children and parents at the Fox Library in Arlington. The children loved reading to Thelma. If the child
stopped reading, Thelma would tilt her head and gently nudge the child to continue reading. Thelma loved to give the
children kisses and listen to their giggles.
senior citizens looked forward to Thelma as well. It was heartwarming to observe the senior citizens uplifting
spirited smiles when they interacted with Thelma.
University students enjoyed the Thelma visits, welcomimg the stress relief from midterm and final exams. Thelma
throughly enjoyed her therapy dog assigments. She was always excited to put on her therapy dog uniform.
of many talents was an outstanding personal assistant when I dog sat a tea cup poodle, Manchester and Harvanese Terriers.
One day the two adventurous poodle and the terriers sneaked out of the yard and started walking down the driveway towards
the street. I told Thelma to go and bring them back. She was all business and herded them right to me
in the backyard. The three partners in crime had their heads down, knew they were in trouble, lol.
Thelma touched so many lives and will be dearly missed, but never forgotten.
She was like a nurse to Chester before he passed away. She loved chasing balls at the park and in the house.
Sadly, she chased her last ball at her favorite Mystic River park on the morning of Labor Day, the day she passed away.
There is another big hole in my heart. Thelma will always have a very special place in my heart. She is
reunited with her two besties Chester and Ava. No doubt all three are driving my husband Tim crazy and smothering
him with love.
Thelma and Chester (beauty and
the clown) enriched my life more than I can express in words. I have so many heartfelt beautiful and humorous
memories to treasure
Thank you so much Cathy for allowing
me to foster and adopt such amazing beautiful dog.
Peace, love and drool,

a great year with Mesa! We just got back from a couple of weeks in Maine on Moosehead lake and with out a doubt Mesa is a
