Foster Dog
2/26/2009 - 2/25/2020My heart weeps and my world is grey, I can't quite remember life without you, although it has been a short twelve years. I remember the day I found you, a 3 pound black and white fur ball, covered in flees, bloated belly, abandoned in the woods. Your back legs, faster than your front, as you somersaulted to get to me, begging me to take you home. It was love at first sight but I ready had a forever fur baby, so my intent was to find you a wonderful home! After two other families tried and failed, you were returned to me, you earned your name "Foster Dog" and became "My Dog” and our souls became inseparable. And for that, I am ever grateful.

Your heart and spirit were without bounds. You were always optimistic, trusting, forgiving, loving, fiercely protective, loyal, and thrilled to be alive. You were courageous and valiant and saved my life spiritually and physically.

Four days ago you became ill and I felt my first tinge of fear about your mortality, we went through extraordinary measure to keep you with us. Your pain was significant on the inside but imperceptible on the outside, you always had the heart of a puppy.

It is with heart-wrenching sadness that I must reveal we had to release the spirit of our fur baby Foster Dog, on Tuesday, February 25. Foster Dog you will always be with us, forever and waiting for us just on this side of heaven in a place called Rainbow Bridge.

9/3/2004 - 11/8/2019Scout was part of our family for 15 years. I feel like I learned to be a grownup with her. She gave our family limitless love and I will miss her forever.Sara BurkeGainesville, FloridaNovember 9, 2019
10/23/2007 - 10/24/2019My beautiful baby Sam. You were my first love. You taught me so much and got me through so much these past 12 years with you. Coming home to you was the best part of my day. There isn't a day that has gone by without you on my mind. You were such a special dog. I'm gonna miss going EVERYWHERE with you because I loved your company. I'm gonna miss playing with you every time I got home. You were so loved by everyone who met you because you were just that amazing. My little baby Sam, thank you for being there for me, I will miss you so so much.Stephanie RamosGainesville, FloridaNovember 7, 2019
Duchess Welch
12/14/2009 - 11/4/2019Duchess was my guardian, protector, shadow, and velcro pup. She took her job very seriously. She would escort me to bathroom at night and guard the door to make sure I was never kidnapped. She would jump in the truck and ride with me out to feed the horses and when we arrived home she would check every inch of the house to be sure all was safe. When her dad would fly out of town for work she never left my side and always made me feel safe. She slept in her own big comfy bed right beside mine and would check up on me throughout the night. When the team of vets and specialists told us she soon would not be able to walk, had only about 6 months left to live and there was nothing we could do about it, 6 months came and Duchess said, "not today! and 6 months from now isn't looking too likely either." With her own set of fancy wheels, laser therapy, and an amazing homeopathic nutritionist/vet helping her every step of the way, she was still running every day 1 year and 3 months later. She was our warrior and never gave up. We will love and miss her forever.Sheyane WelchOcala, FloridaNovember 6, 2019

7/16/2019We rescued Geronimo and his brother, Apache, in 2006 after losing our girl Indiana. Me and my brother were both teenagers, going into high school, and obviously a little rough around the edges. Apache and Geronimo were always so full of energy and always wanted to play, cuddle, whatever the mood struck up.

Apache unfortunately got sick around seven years old and we had to say our goodbyes to him very early. Geronimo became very depressed and seemed to lose his desire to live happily for a while. I got married, adopted my wife's younger black lab, Stitch, and we rescued an Australian Shepherd puppy, Ela. We ended up taking Geronimo in as well, and he instantly regained his youth and energy back. Although he couldn't run as fast as the younger pups, none of them seemed to mind. They all played and cuddled and loved without any restraint. Geronimo would always greet all of us every time we came home with his iconic smile, and everyone remembers him as the sweetest boy. He loved so much, it's made his passing so difficult, but we know he's not in pain anymore, and is running with his brother again finally.

1/17/2008 - 5/9/2019Our dear Jonah,
We were not ready for you to become a memory but Heaven was ready to give you your wings. It is impossible to put into a few words just what you meant to us and what you have given to our family for 11 years. It seems like yesterday I brought you home , 8 weeks old. I stayed up all night and watched “The Lion King” with you so you would not cry.
Your eyes were always filled with such beauty and love.. I could look at your sweet face and feel peace and comfort. I called you my big, brave strong boy after you overcame a life threatening surgery.. You were not ready to leave then.. I think you knew we needed you... We need you now but we know you were ready to run free from the pain and suffering... You deserved it.
We will forever be grateful to your breeders The DeBragancas for bringing you into the world and into our lives and for Dr Amanda Inman with Lap of Love for giving you the most peaceful send off to your Heavenly home. As gut wrenching as it was we could not have asked for a more beautiful way to allow you to leave this world and gain your wings. I wish more than anything we could have had more time but one things for sure... Heaven is more beautiful now that you are in it... Run free sweet boy.. We will love you forever... I hope there are turtles in Heaven....

6/6/2010 - 4/23/2019It’s hard to put into words what this beautiful soul brought to the pack. She will be missed very much. Her simple presence made an impact. Now that she is gone, I miss her fur everywhere. I miss her snores. I miss her impatience when she wanted to go out for a walk and her reluctance when she was tired and we had somewhere to go. I even miss her puppy farts. We will cherish the time we had with her always and she will be a constant companion to my thoughts and I know, one day, we will meet up again through that tunnel and play together like we never were able to in life. Until then Jewel, please play with Marley and swim and run and rub your back in the ground and show your belly to the sun. We love you very very much sweet girl.Beau and Haley The WilsonsGainesville, FloridaApril 27, 2019
