Logan
12/6/2003 - 1/6/2020Logan, you were the best dog anyone could have ever hoped for. We rescued you when you needed a home, and in return you have rescued us every day since. You will be truly missed. We love you old man. XOXOXSt Augustine, FloridaJanuary 7, 2020
Parker
6/24/2011 - 12/29/2019I keep hoping that I’m going to wake up from this bad dream and that you’ll be curled up next to me on the bed. After you were diagnosed with lymphoma on September 25, 2019, life has been a bit of a blur for us. I knew something was going on, but didn’t suspect cancer. It’s like you were fine and then all of the sudden, you weren’t. We were told there was a really good chance for remission if we tried chemo and that we might get to keep you around another year or two, so of course we didn’t hesitate. Unfortunately, the universe had other plans. For whatever reason, nothing we did worked and the cancer started taking over your body completely. While I’m extremely grateful for the three months we got to spend with you after learning of the diagnosis, it’s SO not fair that this happened to you or that the treatments didn’t work. You were only 8 years old and WAY too young to leave this world! I knew one day you would leave us, but I was hoping for much more time with you. At least one thing went right though. I was able to make sure that you left this world peacefully, pain free, at home, and surrounded by your family. I hope you licking my tears beforehand was your way of telling me that it’s okay. You loved me unconditionally.

Parker, I miss you so much that it hurts. There is now a Parker sized void in our lives. The house is not the same anymore. You no longer greet me at the door with your wagging tail and so much excitement that you had to bark, telling me all about what I missed, while weaving in and out of my legs. I keep looking for you in your usual spots and hoping I’ll turn around and you’ll be following me again or peering at me from over the back of the couch. We still open the front window for you when we leave so you can continue to look outside. The house feels very empty, even with two young kids. You were not just a pet to us, you were a member of the family and we no longer feel entirely complete without you here. You had to be in the middle of everything, wherever we were and no matter what we were doing. You were here for all the big moments of our lives, including getting married and the birth of our two children. Not only were you in our wedding, but you’ve been in every monthly picture of the kids, up until now. A tradition I’m sad you are no longer here for.

We are trying to take comfort in the fact that you are no longer in pain and like to picture you in some wonderful place of endless Greenies, walks, and belly rubs. A place where you were greeted and welcomed with open paws by all the fur babies our entire family has loved and lost over the years.

Although you may be gone (except for your hair which we continue to find all over), you will never be forgotten. You will forever live on in our hearts, through our memories, and in the stories that we will pass down. We love and miss you!

Love you always,
Mommy

Gabby
8/12/2004 - 10/22/2019We loved our Gabby girl so very much. She spent 15 years giving us so much love and we miss her terribly. Gabby was the leader of our pack. She loved to play frisbee and tug-of-war with her Daddy and her sisters. She always won! She was a fighter. Gabby loved to go for car rides & trips in the golf cart. She really loved people and other dogs...especially the big ones. She loved to "rough-house" and play. But she was also so caring. Gabby always knew when someone was hurt or sad. Gabby loved to kiss her parents....loved licking our legs when we got out of the shower, and loved licking Mom's make-up off every night after work. Our hearts are broken without her. We miss her every day and are so very sad. We know she is able to run again in heaven, playing with her friends and cousins. Gabby will always be our first baby. We love her so so very much.Cindy JonesPonte Vedra Beach, FloridaOctober 27, 2019

5/30/2003 - 10/20/2019Jack, there are no words to express how much I miss you or how heartbroken I am. Since your passing, I struggle with every breath. You comforted me during my panic attacks, you guarded me when I needed protecting, you loved me unconditionally as I loved (and still love) you. The paw print you left on my heart will never be filled. I will miss and love you forever. Until we are together again, I will love and miss you with every breath.Amanda RobersonJacksonville, FloridaOctober 22, 2019
Sarah
9/21/2004 - 9/2/2019My dear Sarah Bear, you were the most amazing pet and I miss you dearly. Walking into the house just isnt the same without your wagging helicopter tail. You were such a companion dog and wanted to be by my side every moment. When you were little you loved hopping around the yard like a bunny and thinking you were the toughest pup on the block. Your human sissys miss you especially Natalia. Even though you werent very fond of kids your love for her was like no other. I will cherish all of our beautiful memories together and thank you for making the last 12 years the greatest. You will forever be in my heart.Katerina PalajJacksonville, FloridaSeptember 3, 2019

6/30/2004 - 6/7/2019Miss you my little nugget, after you passed I wanted to listen to my music, i know you knew how much I love music and you would let me dance with you. When I turned on my play list, there was a song I didn't recognize and I KNOW I didn't put it on there because it's not what I usually listen to. I was " It's Gonna Be A Lovely Day" from the Secret Life of Pets movie, right there on the top of all the other songs. I listened to it and knew it was a message from you. I'm still going to cry but I'm glad you're happy. Love you ScrapperLaura LinzerSaint Augustine, FloridaJune 10, 2019
