Maddux
6/23/2005 - 3/26/2020Our sweet maddi girl, I miss you so much already. I miss hearing you walking around the house and even your loud snoring. You were always by my side, my little shadow. When I was feeling down you always knew and would sit right next to me. The girls keep asking where their maddi is. I hope you're running free and your legs aren't holding you back anymore ❤Christine GreenRolling Meadows, IllinoisMarch 27, 2020
Sasha
9/1/2003 - 3/19/2020My sweet pup gained her wings this morning. Sweet, sweet Sasha. Sasha-roo. Sashimi. Sushi roll. Biggie smalls. I had a lot of names for you, but most of all, I was lucky to call you mine. Thank you for letting me be yours. It was an honor.

You were the sweetest of the sweet and had the most gentle disposition. When I brought you and Sadie home 3 1/2 years ago, you became fast and lifetime friends with Karen’s dogs, Kona and Shasta. They were here with you today as Dr. Tyler from Lap of Love so kindly and mercifully helped your transition. You graciously accepted (maybe tolerated) and learned to love the numerous dogs I fostered or otherwise brought into the house, from Lily, Gideon, Charlie, Andi, and Maggie. You loved all the kids (human and canine) in the neighborhood and never met a stranger. You also never met a food you didn’t like....

Sasha, you were so loved and there will always be a hole left. But you are now as you were meant to be: young, energetic, full of life, able to explore, your legs work and you are able to run, jump, and play with all of your friends. May we meet again at the end of the bridge. Fly high, sweet Sasha, and watch over those you have joined, including your sister Sadie and Buster. 😇🌈💔🐾

Tucker
10/21/2007 - 2/28/2020Big Head, Tuck-Tuck, Wiggle Butt, Tuck-Nut, it’s so hard to believe you’re not with us anymore. Letting you go was near impossible, but we love you so much and didn’t want you to experience any pain. You were already in obvious discomfort and we knew something was very wrong. When we brought you in on Tuesday to find out that you had two large tumors in your abdomen and the same cancer that your loving brother Buddy had, we didn’t want you to go through the pain and suffering that he did. Please understand that as much as we wanted to spend just a few more days, hours, even just a few more minutes with you, we didn’t want you to suffer, even for a second.
You were loved by so many, Tucker. Our friends and family will never forget your warm cuddles on the couch. We love you more than we can put in words and we are never going to forget you. Have good romps with Buddy, and get those good cuddles in that you used to have with him.
Till we see you again our baby.

Veela
5/6/2008 - 2/22/2020In my heart always. I will love you forever. I am the lucky one. Thank you for being my baby girl and companion. Thank you for making my life better. Thank you for always being there for me and for all the cuddles.
You will never know how much I love you. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are grey. You never know girl how much I love you. Please don't take my Veela away.

“There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in the company of animals. It is a cycle unlike any other. To those who have never lived through its turnings and walked it’s rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with full knowledge that they will be broken seems incomprehensible. Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.”

Wilson
2/19/2010 - 2/14/2020My angel Wilson was the best companion anyone could ask for. Warm, gentle and friendly. He was a sweetheart. Always happy to greet you. It didn’t matter whether you were a family member or a stranger coming in the door. Wilson greeted you with the same tail wagging enthusiasm flashing that Golden Retriever smile. Wilson was the greatest companion, always in the middle of things, always ready to go for a walk or just to play in the yard, a main attraction of the house. He always kept me in sight like a needy toddler. At the end of the day he would curl up next to me while I relaxed in my easy chair. He made my home feel alive, warm and inviting. I miss him tremendously.
Wilson loved people and other dogs as well. If I used the phrase “go see” Wilson would run to the front door and look out. If someone was coming up the driveway he would run out to meet them and accompany them up to the front door. If a car pulled up he would be at the driver’s side door to greet the visitor. Wilson loved going for long slow walks in the neighborhood. He was so easy to handle that he didn’t need a leash although I kept him on one most of the time. While we walked Wilson almost never wandered away and the few time he did it was only to greet someone standing nearby. It only took a clap of the hands or call his name and he would immediately come back to my side. Wilson was probably the most well known dog in the neighborhood. I think more people knew my dogs name than knew my name.

Zoe
3/17/2015 - 2/14/2020Zoe came into our family 5 years ago by chance. She was a senior dog that was adopted by my ex-mother-in-law. Three months later my ex-mother-in-law passed away. I took Zoe in only to find her a home, but then realized after two days she was already home. I fell in love with her sweet little smile and gentle nature. I miss her terribly, but every tear I drop is reminder of how much she meant to me and my family.Zoe WalshChicago, IllinoisFebruary 18, 2020
Wallace
Wallace was there during the hardest parts of my life and I feel that he knew when I needed him the most. He will always be in our hearts and memories. He was the best!Lauren Rowechicago, IllinoisFebruary 14, 2020
Bella
12/21/2006 - 1/31/2020Nobody could light up a room, get a person to smile, or relieve a bad day better than Bella. She loved endlessly and she was very loved in return. She completed our hearts and was our confidant for all of our lives ups and downs. There could never be another Bella and we miss her every day. We love you Bella!Deanna GamberdineBloomingdale, IllinoisFebruary 5, 2020
