This page is dedicated to Scarlet & all her angels An eternal flame is glowing in loving memory of the following rescue Chinese Shar-Pei. May they find peace and happiness while they await the arrival of their loved ones at the Rainbow Bridge.

From the moment Piercy chose his mommy at Operation Scarlet, he demonstrated a tremendously entertaining combination of unquestionable intelligence, creativity, playfulness, and regular engagement—if not supervision—of household activities from his pillow and beds spread throughout the house. Always a foodie, he certainly supervised meals and knew exactly when he was due his hard bones and his chewies, not to mention his regular walks where neighbors knew him enough for the little girls to call out to him. A comical master of his made up games, Mr. P always had to win and his stubbornness served him well until, one morning legs askew, he made it clear it was time for him to leave us. We know his spirit remains here in this household until we, too, cross over.
Joey was a cherished, loving and loyal companion.

with your pals, Miss Sharpie and Toker. Until we meet again sweet girl.
We love you and miss you terribly, – Mommy and Dad

You loved your tennis ball and chasing rabbits. You will be missed every day.

You came into our lives and changed everything! You were beautiful, sweet and goofy.
Our connection was immediate. Every day with you was a blessing! We will treasure those days.
You were taken from us way too soon and our hearts are broken, but we will hold on to every memory and someday we’ll see you again.
We love you and know that your wonderful spirit is still with us. You will always be our “Perfect Patrick.” -Ken and Mary Ellen

T-Bear was a gentle friend to me. Once I got his ear conditions fixed, he became a younger, playful Pei.
On days I couldn’t take him to work with me, I did everything I could to get home to see him waiting for me at the door.
He will be greatly missed by me, but forever in my heart. –Buddy Gibson

Betty, you had such a hard life before coming to us and soon we learned what a “tough” little girl you were and how you survived.
You were totally blind and could still find the food bowl, and the back door when we let you out and your bed when you came back in.
We loved you and know you loved us back with your tail always wagging; it was heart-breaking when you told us you had to go.
Miss you Boop! -Ken and Mary Ellen

Ty, you have been the best friend ever. We are so lucky that you joined our family twelve years ago, and those years passed so quickly.
There is never enough time to spend with a dog who always loved being with the family and behaved like a gentleman.
Everyone who met you loved you and was impressed by how gentle and loving you were.
I hope that you can finally rest in peace. We will always love and miss you! – Marsteller Family

Caesar, you were the King of Hearts and the king of our hearts. You always tried to please, and you were eager for love.
You had a gentle spirit despite the hard life that you endured. You were sweet and loving.
Our time together was so short but we know that you tried to continue for us.
Hopefully, you are able to run and play again. We miss you dearly! The Marstellers

Tribute To A Best Friend
Sunlight streams through window pane
unto a spot on the floor….
then I remember,
it’s where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,
and muted echoes sound….
then I remember,
It’s where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road,
and up beyond the hill,
then I remember it can’t be yours….
your golden voice is still.
But I’ll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall.
I’ll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above.
September 15, 2014
You meant the world to us and brought us joy and mischievous moments but I wouldn’t have traded you for anything in this world. You had a wild side to you a first but became a big softy after all the hugs you received. You always let us know who or what was outside by your different barks and sounds. We could tell if it was a bunny (your favorite), a deer, a person or your buddy Timmy walking around. You were always there in the morning and at night watching over us. We will miss how you greeted us every time we walked through the door. You are our buddy and protector and will always forever be in our hearts. Give our pal Oscar a doggie hug from us. Luv u Te!

Bark-Lee, you were my best friend and constant companion for the last 12 years. Words cannot explain how much I love you and what you mean to me. You came into my life like a whirlwind, taking over the house as if it were built for you and just awaiting your arrival!! Not much changed after that. My life revolved around you and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Your cute little ways made me smile even in the worst of times and you were with me through many of them. I will miss you until I take my last breath on this earth. My heart is broken. Goodbye little man. -Sophia

To our little steel magnolia… we are beyond blessed to have had you as part of our family.
For years, you watched over my sons as they played outside and you wouldn’t budge from the window until they came in.
Now, in your time of need, those big grown boys were honored to watch over you and carry you when you were tired.
Sweet, sweet girl, we’ll miss you more than you’ll ever know.
Thank you so very much, The Drumhellers…… Ed, Sheri, Ethan and Jordan

What can I say about a girl who loved everyone, and all who met her loved her back.
Even when she wasn’t feeling well, Mei’s tail never stopped wagging.
I feel so blessed to have had her in my life for the time we did, and sadly at 6 years old,
God had a new job for her over the Rainbow Bridge and she had to leave us.
Thank you, precious girl for sharing your life with us. You will be in my thoughts and in my heart forever.
Rest in peace, my sweet Mei Mei – till we meet again over the Rainbow Bridge. I love you.

left on our hearts will never be forgotten. She is truly our forever friend. Much love, Mara, John and Jay Samuels.

“Though we did not have you long, you left your pawprints on our hearts. You were a strong, smart, mostly happy, and very beautiful boy.
You tried very hard to quiet the demons in your mind, and we were so proud of the times you succeeded.
But they were stronger, and though we wanted to help you defeat them here, you are now where they cannot hurt you again.
Show Buddha and Zeus the really great dog you would have been, I know it is there, sweet boy.”
May 5, 2013
Bria was sassy, funny, feisty, and most of all, very loving with Joe and I.
She added so much to our family and definitely left a gigantic hole in our hearts when she left us.
It was our pleasure to have been chosen by her to be her family. We miss you, Sweet Girl.
There will never be another like you. You were special. We love you.

“Gentle guardian, stoic spirit, unconditionally loving soul. You protected your boy while he fought his battle,
and never let us know about the war you were waging inside. Your quiet strength and gentle nature made you a joy,
and left us heartbroken to lose you. Now you can run your “happy laps” without running out of breath,
and can nuzzle the angels when they need a boost for their spirits. You are with your boy now, together through all time.”
May 2, 2013
“Happiness can be defined as the furious wagging of your tail, Metronome Butt. The happier you were, the harder your tail, and tail end, wagged.
Even through the long, and unusually successful, battle with your cancer, your proud little flag was waving.
You were always ready for whatever adventure waited, and joyously celebrated with your food bowl.
Be sure to show everyone your “I’m so happy I can’t stand it” dance. Zeus is with you now, the way it should be.”

Sparky joined our family in 2005. He was the 900th Pei rescued by Operation Scarlet.

Jack was a one of a kind Pei . When we met him he was all skin and bones and yet when he entered the room at OS for our first meeting he immediately bonded with me in an attempt to land a home with a fellow “Brooklyn Boy”. We waited a couple of weeks and went back to get Jack. He was tough on strangers but he took quite a liking to men-especially those who were ready to play rough with him. He also loved infants and children-he was the protector. He was as strong as an ox and quite a challenging walker. He loved his stuffed toys and became very fond of Zoey when she joined the family years later.
For six years he was my best friend and I wanted to let him know that I will always love him… – Steve Waldman
Ice came to us in 1997 as a goofy young man, just a year-and-a-half old.

Tika ALWAYS liked to carry a toy when she went outside. She would drop it shortly after going out the door.
When we lived in Harrisburg, we had a swing in the back yard. I would lift her up and set her on it beside me.
We would slowly swing and I would sing to her. That was a close moment for her and I.

When our family lost our first beloved shar-pei child in 1998, we came to Operation Scarlet just to look at the dogs. We just happened to see Tasha there and she reminded us of our first dog. Tasha just loved children and our family fell in love with her. Of course we took her home and she was instantly a part of our family. Tasha accepted our second OS dog, Magoo, hesitantly. After Magoo passed away, Tasha welcomed her role as the only dog in the house. She was a tremendous watch dog barking at anything or anyone who even stepped on to our street. Children always got a free pass in the door, but adults got the warning from her basically saying ‘you can come in, but you had better be nice to my family’. When our third son was born, she watched over him constantly. The two were inseparable. Tasha was a wonderful part of our family for almost nine years. She died peacefully at the age of 13 on May 4, 2007 and gave us so many wonderful memories. We will forever miss our faithful friend and look forward to meeting her at the Rainbow Bridge .

Akasha was rescued in 2001. She was a sweet, sweet girl with a very troubled past. So troubled that her days were tormented by
extreme anxiety. So many of us at O.S. tried to make her days happier and more comfortable, but our
efforts were not enough to help her forget. Dear sweet Akasha, may you now find peace and be free of pain and suffering.

Marysville PA, and her family there will miss her despite a small misunderstanding over medication once.
