Parker
6/22/2008 - 12/30/2020Parker was always our little shadow. He would follow his mama everywhere. He was always hungry and loved rides in the car. Parker would co-pilot in the front seat looking out of the windshield. He loved tennis balls and would pull the squeakers out of his toys ever so gently and put them in mamas purse. He loved tug of war and playing with his Papa. Nami loved to give him treats and he was loved by all. Parker, may everyday of paradise be sunny, warm, and full of squirrels. My favorite story of you is and always will be how I wrapped all my Christmas presents the year i bought you and you opened them all up and ate 1-2 a brick of fudge. I was panicked and you were 6 months old and it was as if nothing happened. Enjoy your treats bubs. We miss you bubba boy.Kingsley FitzgeraldMalden, MassachusettsDecember 31, 2020

Grady
7/7/2005 - 12/12/2020She came into my life on July 7, 2007 (7-7-07!) as two-year old “Freckles” from Georgia. She barreled off the truck with gooey eyes and a phlegm-rattling cough. She sat in the car pensive and unsure as we drove from some New Hampshire suburb to Boston. It wasn’t what I was expecting. Her tail didn’t wag. Our eyes didn’t meet. She cowered. In my apartment, she sniffed and explored. She whined and shook. She didn’t look me in the eyes, not even once. I hated to admit that everyone was right. I shouldn’t have adopted a dog. I had a full-time job, I lived in the city with no fenced in yard, I was living paycheck to paycheck just supporting myself and I was unarguably in the darkest days of my existence – my mind still reeling and my heart still shattered from the devastating loss of my best friend and travel companion a year prior. I renamed Freckles who truly was freckled from head to toe with orangey-brown spots upon white fur to Grady Freckles Hadfield as if sharing my surname would make her love me. It didn’t. Day two, she ate a pillow and peed on my floor. Day three, she puked on my new carpet. Grady and I finally met eyes on day 8 and we never looked back. She came to me a spooked, sad, cowering dog with an unknown past and an apprehension to trust. In many ways, I was in the same state. I was broken and she brought me back to life. Our adventures have been among the best in my life. Grady taught me patience, and how to get a puke stain out of a carpet. She showed me loyalty. We shared an appetite for adventure and for food we know we shouldn’t eat. To know Grady is to love her. Her rich mahogany eyes had years behind them that I would never know and sometimes her behavior revealed hints that she had been hurt before. But when it mattered, Grady girl would use every pound of her fifty to lean on me letting me know that I could count on her. My darkest days were lightened by her signature lean and nudge. Now I imagine her hopping through the snow or paddling her stout legs in a body of water, salt or fresh, frigid or warm, it never mattered. Until the day comes when I can see her again, I hope she knows the irreplaceable special place she has in my heart.Andrea HadfieldBoston, MassachusettsDecember 13, 2020
Bella
12/1/2008 - 12/9/2020Everyone will miss you Bella. She was such a good cat and so beautiful. You can have all the coconut oil you want.Jessica Camplese-RodriguesSTONEHAM, MassachusettsDecember 9, 2020
Gus
7/25/2003Gus was my best friend, my everything, for 15+ years. He was my loyal companion, my shadow, and my adventure partner for so long that it is a struggle to learn how to deal with this new life without him. There is simply a hole in my heart that may get smaller as time goes on, but will never fully heal.

While the sadness of the current moment is crushing, it can not come even close to outweighing all the wonderful, happy memories I have of Gus. I wanted a dog for so, so long that the life pictured in my head seemed unattainable - but Gus surpassed every expectation. We did everything together. And I am so, so proud of the life I gave this little shelter dog from New Orleans. He truly made me a better human being, and I hope he understood what an impact he had on my life and how much I loved him.

Gus was so much more than a dog, he was my family. Kenny, Cannon, Tilly, Izzy and I will miss his physical form immensely, but his memories and spirit will absolutely live on forever.

Gus - I hope you’re running around and tearing apart a million stuffed animals and eating all the ice cream cones up there - and remember that I love you more than you could ever imagine, my little legend 🐕 ❤️

Gus
12/13/2017 - 11/16/2020Gus was our beloved Frenchie who was our baby before we had our daughter and we will miss him sorely. He passed at a young age due to unfortunate circumstances but his short live was well lived. He loved to play ball, go for walks, take baths, and follow his little sister wherever she went to keep an eye on her! At night his favorite thing to do was cuddle up in bed with us and enjoy a treat. The house is quiet and lonely without his vivacious personality. He will be missed by so many but most by his loving parents. We love you gus gus, rest in peace our sweet boy.Charlene & Anthony OReillyQuincy, MassachusettsNovember 18, 2020
Frisky
9/1/2004 - 10/30/2020Frisky, you gave us your unconditional love for 16 years. We will love you with all the same passion forever. There really are no words to express how much we miss you. How much pain is in our hearts. You were the daughter we never had. We will never forget your gentle, loving personality. The pain of losing you is so intense. We miss your greeting every time we walk in the house. I am so happy that I got to hold you in your final moments and that you could hear Dad and I give our love to you. You were home and surrounded by people who love you.Dolores LATTANZIEVERETT, MassachusettsNovember 6, 2020
Rosey
1/5/2006 - 10/31/2020To our sweet baby girl Rosey,

From the day that we met you, you made our lives so much brighter. There were no dull days with your happy self by our sides. God gave us the beautiful gift of holding you close in our arms for an amazing 13 and a half years. From playing hide and seek, to running outside, to cuddling whenever anyone sat down- you made life beautiful. Rosey Posie Dosey, our baby girl, you will remain forever in our hearts. We will meet again, and we will give you as many hamster treats as your big heart desires. We miss you, Rosey. We love you more than anything.

Love,

Your family

Amber
9/9/2006 - 10/23/2020Words cannot express how we feel with the loss of our Amber. Amber was our princess. She gave us unconditional love. Our home is empty without her love and cuddles. Our sweet Amber, you will forever be in our hearts. May you rest in peace and run the fields of heaven to your hearts content. Love you always!Betsy GonzalezNorfolk, MassachusettsOctober 27, 2020
