When you gave me Mali you not only gave me one of your amazing Shiloh Shepherds, you gave me back my independence. Training her to be my service dog was only a first step, you soon became my mentor, friend, collaborator, and confidante. You gave so much of your life to your family and even more to the development of this intelligent and sensitive breed of dog. “A dog like no other.”
I miss you Ma and know I will miss you until I see you again.

Lisa and family, my heartfelt condolences. Please know, I'm here to help you continue MaShiloh's dream, the recognition of the ISSR Shiloh.

Jun 8.11 from Nancy Tisci:
To Tina, My deepest appreciation to you, very special lady who has blessed this world with her precious gift of the original and true Shiloh Shepherd breed. I know that "Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you until we meet again."
For Lisa and all of Tina's family and all of us who are priviledged fo be called her friends ... I would like to share the following words that have often comforted me. "When I am gone from your side, and all of your tears have been dried ... Do not stand by my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on snow; I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn's rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft star that shines down on you at night. And when you stroll in the evening hours, and smell the aroma of beautiful flowers; There'll be no need to sob and cry ... Do not grieve my dears ... I am here ... I am with you always ... I did not die!(Anonymous)
Nancy Tisci

Jun 8.11 from Jessica Schepler:
I met you at the Udo Libby LER. You held an STM seminar that day. And several people brought dogs that they were having problems with so that you could teach the owners what to do. Funny thing, not one of the dogs would misbehave around you. Those dogs instinctively knew what anyone who got to know you or read your book soon learned. You are a force to be reckoned with. I hope that someday I know half as much as you did about dogs and that I can learn to follow my heart and live my dreams the way that you followed yours. What you have created and left behind for all of us is nothing short of amazing.

Jun 7.11 from Olga Twombly:
Dear Tina
You took me under your wing and took care of me like a tender flower. You became my friend and mentor and helped me grow in ways I didn't know I was capable of. Thank you! Thank you for being my friend, and for my beautiful shilohs, Orion, whom I hope you give a PHEW up in heaven whenever he needs it. Kuma, my love bug, and Bronte, my baby girl. I miss you so.

Lisa and family, my heartfelt condolences. Know I'm here to help you continue MaShiloh's dream, the recognition of the ISSR Shiloh.

Olga, Kuma & Bronte

Jun 2.11 from Laura Lizotte:
Dear Tina,

I love you more than words can say. You are the most amazing woman I know. I love your passion, always on fire, your words and actions did not go unnoticed. I love your tenderness, with the dogs. I love your fierce protection of those you love, animal and human alike. I love your fearless and tireless spirit as you trod down this hard road day after day, against the wind, against all odds. For the love of a dog- Shiloh Shepherds- the name is almost a whisper, you did not ever waste words dealing with your dogs. You could size them up and they just knew you. You are a mother to this breed, and a mother to all of us you tirelessly educated. I don’t know anyone as courageous, brave, and always true- to yourself, the dogs, the Lord. It has been an honor to have you in my life, I am just not ready to let you go; forever will I hear your voice telling me a story or expounding on rear drive. Tina, you have my love, gratitude, loyalty, and admiration; thank you for being. May you be forever at peace in the eternal company of our Lord.

Love, ~Laura Lizotte

Jun 2.11 from Bonnie B. and Leo:
Thank you is not enough to express my gratitude for my wonderful Leo. Just lat night, I was reminded of your vision when he was trying to figure out how to get a ball from under our bed. He went from one side to the other and finally stretched his paw in enough to hit it to the other side where he promptly retrieved it. His intelligence continues to amaze us and his beauty and temperament are so amazing. I am reminded of your vision every time I look at him.

Jun 2.11 from sonjia bredlau:
Ma...... I miss you.... it's hard to accept that you're not here.... It's just not the same anymore, it's still hard to believe. I know that you and God are talking dogs. I'm more then sure that God has given you a spectacular paradise all of your own to play and romp in with all of Gods Animal Kingdom.

May you soar over New Zion keeping watch over her.

Will miss you till we meet up again,
love you always,

Jun 2.11 from Fam Metz:
Ma Shiloh, thank you for your wonderful gift of these beautiful dogs.
Our deepest sympathy to the Barber family.

Proud owner of a "dutch" Shiloh

Jun 2.11 from Katherine and Alan and the Vegreville Shepherd Pac:
When we think of Ma Shiloh it picks the following quote to mind:
“There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say, "Yes, I've got dreams, of course I've got dreams." Then they put the box away and bring it out once in awhile to look in it, and yep, they're still there. These are great dreams, but they never even get out of the box. It takes an uncommon amount of guts to put your dreams on the line, to hold them up and say, "How good or how bad am I?" That's where courage comes in.” Erma Bombeck
Tina did not just talk about her dream, she got to live it!!!! And what us so wonderful is that her memory and drean will go on living in her breed, the Shilohs. Thanks for all you have given us.

Jun 2.11 from Geri & Livio:
Tina, thank you for the greatest gift we have ever received - our beautiful Shiloh boy, Cooper. We will miss your advice and guidance and cherish forever the knowledge you have passed on to us. Rest peacefully in Heaven with your Shilohs at your side and give Lazarus a pat on the head and a kiss on the nose from us. He is the one that started us on this wonderful Shiloh journey.
Love, Geri, Livio and Cooper

Jun 2.11 from Virginia, Prom and Bruno:

Lisa and family, you are in my prayers. May you find comfort in many wonderful memories.

Jun 2.11 from Rhonda & Tim Dias:
Tina, I'm so sorry we never met personally, but we owe you so much. You've not only made it possible for us to own the two most awesome dogs in the world (Dude & Otis), but you also were instrumental in my finding Jesus and being born again, thru your stories and posts on your websites. I owe you a debt of gratitude and look forward to seeing you on the other side to hug you finally in person. God speed.

Love, your sister in Christ, Rhonda

Tina you will be missed by many people all over the world. I think how I met you back in the 80's and all the correspondence we shared. You inspired me to stick with my chosen breed and to learn learn learn. I will miss you but you are in a better place now. Truly a woman before her time.
