Hoosier Heartland Goldens

Golden Retrievers Raised with LOVE!!!

Zoe Mae 1/12/03 - 6/19/17

Where does one begin to morn the death of her heart?  That's that Zoe was to me.  My HEART dog.  Never pushy, never demanding bu Ever faithful.  She knew my pains and aches.  She knew my depression and sadness.  What a wonderful soul.  She lived 14.5 years and gave me wonderful JOY!  I couldn't ask for more from a furry friend.  I miss her so much. 

"Lilly's Journey 4 Amazing Grace" Lilly 8/29/07 - 5/25/17

Words cannot express the sadness I feel after losing such a loving girl.  Lilly gave me so much joy and was such a Blessing my life. I Miss her terribly and will always!!!!!!!
My heart is in pieces and it will be years until it starts to heal.  There will never be another like my Lilly Grace.

"She's A Wild One" Peyton Mae 6/22/07 - 12/16


Emma 9/3/2004 - 8/24/2015

Emma was a puppy born to Teresa Sayre on September 3, 2004.  I helped whelp this litter while home from work with strep throat.  She was so funny and whenever families came to pick puppies she would try so hard to get their attention but they would always pass her by.  At 8 weeks she came to live with me for a while until I found her fabulous forever family with Suzie and Chuck in Muncie, IN.  I got the call the evening of 8/24/15 that Emma had passed quietly while at the vet for observation.  She would have been 12 next week.  Her family is heartbroken and my heart breaks for them as well.  Rest in Peace Emma Lou. 

Sir Rolling Rock-A-Lot (Rocky) 6/22/07 - 8/21/15

Rocky was born on June 22, 2007 from Buddy/Zoe and was our green collar boy.  He went to live with the Jordan's and lived a wonderul and happy life. Sadly he went to the bridge on August 21, 2015 when he was overtake with cancer and needed to be free from pain.  Rest in Peace Rocky boy...We all love and miss you. 

Cupid's Golden Dream (Barkley) 2/14/2006 - 7/20/2015

The loss of Barkley. The smallest in the litter who grew to a boy who excelled in agility and obedience. With sadness I make this announcement.  Please keep Barkley's family in your thoughts. Most of us know what it's like to say goodbye. They loved him and gave him a wonderful loving home with other Goldens to make his life complete.  I'm proud of this puppy and how far he came from the 10 oz at birth to a great loving dog.  See you someday again at the Bridge. 

Carson A Journey Begins (4/8/2004 - 4/3/2015)

Lilly's father Carson, went to the bridge on April 3, 2015 with the help of his loving family. 

 He will be missed and can only pray that he is in no more pain and running free. 

If it wasn't for him, I would not have my Lilly or my good friend Laura!!!!!



Destiny Lynn 10/15/2000 - 3/2014

My first dog as an adult.  She was a huge black beast and was as stubborn as a mule.  But I loved her.  I miss her so much and her odd ways.  The big old girl had a big old place in my heart then and she will have her own place there FOREVER!!!  I still miss her to this day...all 100+ pounds of her. 


Sir Max's Golden Heart

2/14/06 - 10/31/13

On October 31, 2013 early AM Max crossed over the the Bridge to become a Golden Angel with his family by his side. 

Max will forever be loved and missed by his humans The Moor Family. 

Thank you for giving him such an awesome home while he was here on earth. 

Sadie Marie "Sadiebug"

May 25, 2001 - October 2, 2012

Today I said goodbye to you my precious furbaby. It breaks my heart to lose you but I know you hurt no more. I'm sure ill cry every time I think about your wiggly butt and excitement every time I walked through the door. You destroyed landscaping all with an evident smile on your face and you were always here to steal pizza, sandwiches, etc off counters and tables. Though you never really played with toys or your other fur siblings you were evident in our family! Quiet and sweet you were one if a kind. I cried when I knew you were sick and it broke my heart to make that choice to say goodbye! But I felt in my heart you needed release. I held you in my arms as you took your final breath in this world and passed to a world of never-ending love. My world is forever changed from that Saturday 11 1/2 years ago when we picked that tiny black puppy up and took her home. I love you for always Sadie Marie...my Sadiebug (Gone to the Bridge 10/2/12).

Colton 12/17/10 - 10/23/11

Colton was with us but a brief time.  what a precious boy.  He is missed and continually Loved and thought of.

Sir Buddy Wiser II 12/2/2000 - 8/2/2009

Buddy was a gentle boy who we were happy to have sire our first 4 litters with Zoe Mae. 

He was such a blessing in our Lives and is sadly missed. 


Lady Bella Grace 6/2/05-11/20/06


Bella was a special girl in so many ways to me.  She was Hoosier Heartland's first puppy ever born.  She was part of my family.  Although she went to live with the Webbs, she only lived down the street and visted often.  Unfortunately, God wanted her back sooner than we planned.  She will always be missed and always in my heart!  I love you Bell Bell.  I know you are better off now and no longer suffering. 

Love, Amy




I will lend you for awhile,

a pup, God said,

For you to love her while she lives

and mourn for her when she’s dead.

Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,

or maybe one or two

But will you, ‘till I call her back,

take care of her for me.

She’ll bring his charms to gladden you

and (should her stay be brief)

you’ll always have her memories

as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise she will stay,

since all from earth return

But there are lessons taught below
I want this pup to learn.


I’ve looked the whole world over

In search of teachers true

And from the folk that crowd’s life’s land

I have chose you.

Now will you give her all  your love

Nor think the labor vain,

Nor hate me when I come to take

My Pup back again.


I fancied that I heard them say

“Dear Lord Thy Will be Done,”

For all the joys this Pup will bring,

the risk of grief we’ll run.

We’ll shelter her with tenderness

we’ll love her while we may

And for the happiness we’ve known

forever grateful stay

But should you call her back

much sooner than we’ve planned,

We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes,

and try to understand.

If, by our love, we’ve managed,

your wishes to achieve

In memory of her we loved,

to help us while we grieve,

When our faithful bundle departs

this world of strife,

We’ll have yet another Pup and

love her all her life.
