Kylie
3/31/1998 - 3/5/2017There are no words. Kylie was with me for almost 19 years. She brought amazing energy to our home... so much love beamed through her big green eyes and her extraordinary heart. The loss and grief is unimaginable. Pray for my sweet girl. RIP Ky-Ky. We will see each other again.Louanne FriesChicago, IllinoisMarch 9, 2017
Ringo
07/03/2003 - 03/05/2017To our very, very dear Ringo Dean, our precious gift from God, we all loved you so very much. Now our hearts are aching because we miss you terribly, especially Shadow. Your passing will bring us together to comfort Shadow and help him heal from the loss of his brother, his littermate, his constant companion and partner in crime <3 Thank you for your love, dedication and devotion to all of us. I know you lived to protect us and we loved you for that. Caring for you has been one of the most meaningful responsibilities of my life. We are all grateful to have had 13 1/2 years with you, years filled with love, laughter and craziness. I'm grateful that we were given so much time together after your diagnosis. Looking back at pictures and videos, we see that you had lots of good times, even through treatment. We hope you are with our loved ones and that you are watching over your brother, with Butterly Love. We love you Baby Butter. Until we meet again <3Linda VadenLisle, IllinoisMarch 8, 2017
Sparky
6/24/2004 - 3/4/2017Words cannot express how much my little Sparky means to me. He would have been by my side 24 hours a day if he could, and he often was. I wouldn't have had it any other way. He liked to sleep at night on a little bed beside my bed. Every time I woke up at night, I would peek down to look at him and pet him. He never got up in the morning before I did, and he never went all the way downstairs before I was there. First, he would wait for me at the top of the stairs. Once I reached him, he would hop down to the first landing. As I started down the stairs, he would go down to the second landing and wait for me. When I got there he would go all the way down and then our next routine would start (morning bathroom break, a treat for being a good boy, and then breakfast awhile later). If I was home, he was right there with me. If there was any way I could take him with me when I left, I did and he loved to come along. We also did many special things together. He was an agility champion and a therapy dog. We hosted and attended dog parties for his agility buddies. We walked in two parades together. We took an overnight trip to Camp Dogwood. He was "my guy," but he also had a beautiful personality and many people loved him, even those who were not previously dog lovers. Even though I miss him terribly, our time together was priceless and it brings me comfort to know that he's not suffering. Now that he's gone, I can't help but reflect on what a great role model he was. If everybody lived like Sparky, the world would be such a happy place. Rest in peace, little buddy. I love you and can't wait to see you again one day! You are a special angel.Julie DonatelliPark Ridge, IllinoisMarch 7, 2017
Gracie
2/23/2003 - 11/27/2016SWEET GRACIE GIRL-You were so brave and loyal right up to the very end! we hated to see you suffer but just couldn't imagine our life without you so we kept hoping that "things" would change, even though Dr.Ron explained that congestive heart failure doesn't get better. True to your Labrador nature, you even ate some steak the morning that you died! At first, we thought that meant that you had more time but as the day went on and your paws swelled more and more and you couldn't lay down by the fire, we knew that we had to let you go to end your suffering. That was the hardest call ever!! I really kept hoping that this was all a bad dream that I was having.

you were the BEST GIRL EVER and we will LOVE YOU ALWAYS. Everyone on our street loved you, too. And you loved everyone, even if they didn't want to play with you!

Lily
1/1/2005 - 2/4/2017Lily was the best dog I could have ever asked for. I loved her from the moment I saw her. Happy beyond measure even through chaos and hard times. She was the most compassionate and loving dog I have ever known. Faithful and loving beyond measure. She never ceased to make us laugh from her love of squeaky toys and desire to de-fluff them as soon as possible to her pure joy of running in the yard and soaking up the sun. She was never stingy on kisses and would shower you in kisses for as long as you would let her. She taught me about joy, loyalty, devotion, perseverance, grace, gentleness, empathy, and compassion in a way I didn’t even know was possible. She quite simply was my heart, my joy, and baby girl. I will love you forever my little one. I am extremely grateful that God graced me with your care for the last 12 years. I know that you are now in God’s care soaking up all the glorious warmth that heaven has to offer. Be at peace my girl. I will see you again.Roxanne BristowGurnee, IllinoisFebruary 5, 2017
Roy

Riley
5/1/2008 - 1/26/2017Riley was being trained to be a service dog but they found he was a little too rambunctious for that role and had to find him a good home. We were happy to welcome him to our family in March 2009. He was 11 months old and was the most sensitive dog I ever met. If you were sad or mad he would come sit by your side to comfort you. We thought we were taking care of him but he really was taking care of us. His favorite things to do were go to the park, chase frisbees, chew on sticks and play tug of war. His face and bark were menacing but all who met him immediately fell in love once they realized how tremendously sweet he was. We loved him immensely and will forever carry him in our hearts. Miss you, puppy. RIP 😘Teresa VahlLake Bluff, IllinoisJanuary 27, 2017
Ruskin
8/15/1999 - 1/12/2017Dear Ruskin boy, we will miss you terribly, and we miss you right now, and yes, even Sylvester misses you, as he has been looking around for you. We are so lucky to have had you rescued to become part of our family and so grateful to you for immeasurably enriching our lives. You were the ultimate Good Boy your entire life, never once hissing or raising a claw to anyone, instead spreading love and affection and cooperation to everyone you met, from our friends and family all the way up to the vets and vet techs of your last weeks, to all of whom you made such a positive impression. You were a gentle, innocent soul to all people, yet simultaneously a strong willed cat full of endearing personality who loved life to the fullest, and we know you had a very happy 17 and a half years in our home and that you loved us very much. You have provided us with countless wonderful memories, whether it be the many road trips you took with us out east to visit my mother and how you loved hanging out in front of her fireplace or with all the flowers on sunny days in her solarium, or how from the time you were a kitten all the way through your last month you would always drape your head over Marquita's shoulder whenever she picked you up, and snuggle the top of your head against the back of her neck and down her hair, or simply the unique combination of noble serene demeanor and playful mischief that you always exhibited as you asked for and gave out unlimited affection every day. I'll always remember how you came down to the basement door to greet us with loud meows when we came home from any absence of more than an hour. I'll always remember your confident swagger as you walked down the hall approaching one of us for a rub and greet several times a day, with your tail undulating high in the air above you. I'll always remember your happy sleeping pose when you curled up and turned your head upside down and paws outstretched to your hind legs, with your two little fangs visible over your white chin fur. Those were happy days of mutual unconditional love and comfort which lasted for over 17 years. You were and always will be our number-1 cat. You were a true one-of-kind - there will never be another Ruskin, and we will cherish you the rest of our lives. We are so glad that you were able with our help to revive that good ole Ruskin life energy for a few more months of quality time after you became sick last September. Fare well my sweet friend and constant companion, and may we meet again in another life down the road. With love always from your special pal, - Brian

Dearest Ruskin, you'll be in my heart forever. When first seeing your pic in an email from a friend who found you, I knew Brian would have to see you and would want you in our lives. That was the start of 17.5 wonderful years together. You gifted us with love and playfulness and all the more love. Even peeps who said they weren't into cats, upon interacting with you, changed their minds. You won everyone over. You knew how to comfort--when my dad died you stayed by my side--and how to provide warning--when I overflowed the kitchen sink and water leaked into the basement, you came loudly meowing to me. It's hard to imagine not seeing you walking throughout the house anymore, but I can indeed imagine you walking throughout the Heavenly house above (the Pope says our pets go to Heaven and I believe for sure). I vow to always have fresh flowers in the house. You never stopped enjoying the fragrance of flowers, nor did you stop pulling some out of any vase I put them in. I remember one time in particular, the morning after Brian finished our tax returns, Bri had all the papers arranged on the dining room table. As usual, I had a vase of flowers on the table. Upon entering the dining room, to my surprise, all the papers were wet and the vase was knocked over. Yep, you did it. I let out a gasp and quickly got the hair dryer to resolve the problem. After all that, I still wouldn't stop having flowers around. I can't say I wasn't upset whenever you did such things, but it was never malicious on your part. You wouldn't know how to be mean. Oh sweet Ruskin, you are loved forever. God bless. Love always, -- Marquita
