Ellie Mae
10/7/2006 - 3/16/2017I want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts who offered condolences on our loss of Ellie Mae last Thursday. For those of you who have truly loved a dog, I’m sure that you can appreciate how hard it has been on Laura and me, and has been especially difficult on all of us over the last couple of weeks while she was so frail.

As painful as Thursday was for us, I have to give the highest praise to the folks at Lap of Love Veterinarians in Fairfax. Dr. Beth Meadow came to our house to help Ellie through her transition, and she could not have been more caring, respectful, and sympathetic. She treated Ellie like a good friend, and was so gentle in everything she did. After the doctor left, we found that she had left behind for us a plaster cast of Ellie’s paw, and a small clear container with a bit of Ellie’s fur in it from where she had to shave a small patch on her leg. Ellie’s passing was very peaceful, and, as strange as it may sound, also beautiful.

Another great amount of gratitude goes to the people at Sunset Pet Services in Alexandria who sent a young man named Junior to our house to take Ellie away for cremation. I helped Junior prepare her for her last car ride, and he treated her with a tremendous amount of respect and dignity, as if she were a queen. I stopped by their office the next morning, and brought her home.

Earlier that week, Ellie and I were sitting in the front yard, and a feather from nowhere floated down in between us. I happened to read the next day that a feather floating by is a sign of your guardian angel being present. Friday morning, as Laura was sitting at her dressing table, another feather floated by outside of her window. It gives us great comfort to know that someone is continuing to watch over her, and us.

We have wonderful memories of Ellie, and there are constant reminders of her life with us all around the house, and we still think we hear her on occasion. We all have been living in our walk-out basement to help her on her trips outside, and I bought a warm-mist room humidifier to make the environment more comfortable. I now find myself staring at that wispy whirling mist gently floating in the air just feet away from where she spent her last hours. I find it comforting and somehow reassuring.
Ellie was 10-1/2 years old, which is beyond the average lifespan for bloodhounds, and I can tell you that she had a life full of love and attention. I could go on and on, but I just want to be sure to thank everyone for their kind words.

Bella Bear (princessa) Stink Wink
5/15/2010 - 3/21/2017Bella was full of love and energy! She was such a stoic girl given all her medical history!Her smile, tail wag, loving to dance with her mama and eat with her daddy! Letting you go in peace was the most selfless thing I have ever done. I didn't want to let you go ever! But...you were tired my princess and in pain. It took all of me to be able to give you what you deserved! You will always always be my baby girl, my pretty princess, my stink wink and you know mommy loves you like a chicken wing;) thank you for all the love you brought to our lives! Rest now sweet child of mine!Keri RodriguezHarrisburg, PennsylvaniaMarch 23, 2017
Yadi
2/3/2008 - 3/19/2017A piece of my heart is missing today. After an emotional roller coaster ride, we had to make the most difficult decision ever and let Yadi cross the rainbow bridge. Our time together was not nearly enough. I am completely numb with pain. He was our baby and went everywhere and did everything with us...to work everyday, vacations and our many crazy adventures. I don't know how I will function without him. The house is eerily quiet. I'm going to miss my little buddy so much, but I am grateful to have been his mom. The joy he brought to our lives is unexplainable. He loved everyone and everyone loved him. He has been through so much since December. He has had a great couple of months and enjoyed lots of loving, walks and treats. He fought a hard fight to try to stay here with us. It was so hard because from the outside he looked like a healthy dog and gave us little signs of hope here and there (even on our nice walk this morning) but the tumor caused a lot of damage to his upper airway and it was starting to be too much effort for him to breathe and eat. We decided we would rather let him go too soon than to have him suffocate. We couldn't live with ourselves if we let that happen. Instead, he went peacefully in the comfort of his own home, in my arms, and I was with him until the end. I didn't think it was possible to cry this much, and I wonder if it the tears will ever stop. Rest easy my sweet handsome boy. Mommy and daddy love you and will miss you so much.Jennifer ToebeSt. Louis, MissouriMarch 22, 2017

Pearl
11/30/2000 - 03/15/2017Our sweet Pearl,You were so tiny when we brought you home for the first time. What a beautiful little girl you were. That is why I called you Peanut so much. Your mom and dad will and are missing you so much. We know you are finally happy with your brother Pickle and not suffering anymore. You can now snuggle with him every night. I can still feel you both next to me every night since you slept with me for 17 years. You gave us so much joy into our lives and our hearts. I hope you are sharing your sparkle balls I sent with you. They were your favorite things to play with on the bed. You could jump so high like you were flying. You will always be in our hearts.Thank you for all the memories we will always have. Mom and Dad love you.Tony and Donna CarnesAiken, S. CarolinaMarch 22, 2017
Kira Angelina
3/1/2000 - 3/21/2017Sweet Kira Angelina passed away in my arms last night at around 5 pm. I had been up with her since 5 am, hardly leaving her side, just as it had been for our near 17 years together. My step-daughters and friends and family that knew her and loved her were able to spend time with her and say farewell. We took her outside on the deck so that she could soak up the sun for a bit and feel the soft breeze. We meditated together, listened to gentle, healing music and snuggled all day. Although Kira had been very close to transitioning on her own, I am so grateful that Betsy, our hospice vet, arrived to help her finally let go with ease. I watched her take her last breaths and as I did, I looked outside where she often watched the birds, and I felt a lightness and joy in my heart, despite the tears. We chose to bury her just after dawn in a special place on our land where the sunrise and sunset are always visible and light up the sky and the earth around her. Just as we lay her body down, the sun came up over the roof and rays of light shined right over her special place. It was so beautiful.
Dear sweet Kira Angelina, "itty-bitty kitty-boo", my lap feels so empty without the weight of your soft little furry form. I miss your inquisitive meows and gentle purrs, your constant companionship, the way you looked deeply into my eyes as if to know me better than I know myself. My heart aches for you even though I know you are not truly gone. You are with us and in my heart always. I may have said it 10,000 times, and I will say it again and again: I love you with all of my heart and mind and spirit. You were such a good kitty to all of us and are one of my best friends. Thank you for placing your trust in me, for your unconditional love and for choosing to share your life with us.

Meagan
5/1/2007 - 3/19/2017You have a special place, Dear Lord that we know you always keep. A special place reserved for dogs, to peacefully fall asleep. A place with fluffy pillows, and a yard for hiding bacon and doggie biscuits, with a babbling creek that rushes over stones, with wide green fields and trees with squirrels jumping back and forth on the tree limbs; where a puppy named Meagan who loves to look up and wants to catch the squirrels. Lord, we know you keep this special place, for we know that
D O G spelled backwards is G O D.

So, we give you back this special puppy named Meagan. Give her the love that we gave her. Give her the strength that she might run and play again. Give her the love that we so much had for her just as your Son had for us. She will be dearly missed, Dear Lord, but Meagan can now run and romp and play in your land. Speak softly to our baby. Meagan loves for her head to be rubbed, a certain spot close to her back end to be rubbed and most important – when she rolls over, rub her tummy.
We love you Meagan, you will always be in our hearts....
