Cheyenne Burkman Flaig
January 1, 1753
Surrounded by her family, our devoted dog and friend, Cheyenne, returned home on August 20, 2010. She will be dearly missed. She was almost 13 years old. Cheyenne was adopted from the pound in May of 1998 as a wedding present to Oliver. She has spent almost every day of our entire married life with us. She had severe separation anxiety and would rather sit in the car and wait, than sit at home alone. When our first child was born, she waited in the car and Oliver would walk her around the hospital grounds. She was like a 2nd mother to both the kids. She was always near them when they played and loved to be part of the games, even if she was being dressed up or getting her “hair” done, or being ridden like a horse. When not with the kids, she followed mom or dad around the house like a shadow or was just lying close. She was always at the door, with her tail wagging, when we returned home. She spent her life in Utah, Missouri, and Texas. She loved walks and car rides; playing in the snow, having her ears rubbed, people food, her cat, Max, and most of all, her family. Over the last year she began to noticeably age, but never suffered from the ailments of old age. Her last morning was spent staying close with the family as we made breakfast, then sat close to the table, and had a waffle. She died that afternoon in her momma’s lap, with the rest of the family hugging her. Although we are going to miss her terribly, we are thankful that she never suffered except in those few final moments. She was a perfect soul. She rarely barked, never complained, and was always loyal. She was our protector and our friend. We love you, Cheyenne and you will remain forever in our hearts and prayers.
