Yuri
9/8/2008 - 12/30/2019With great, great sadness - we said goodbye today to our gentle, sweet, loyal, stunningly beautiful, and loving puppy -- Yuri. A true blessing every day of his life.

He survived nearly 33 full months after brain tumor surgery and radiation treatment, living a near normal life until this Thanksgiving Day when his seizures recurred.

With a typical life expectancy of 18 months after tumor diagnosis, Yuri was obedient to the end, giving us the far end of reported survival times from this kind of brain tumor.

We SO wanted to hang onto him forever, but saw his quality of life was suffering. He was the best dog ever! And the house feels so very empty. RIP my dearest little love.

Maisy
1/19/2014 - 12/23/2019It has only been 48 hours since you have been gone, but we are missing you so much. We look to your pillow expecting to see you there. I talk into thin air now instead of to you. Our daily routines have been altered. There is a void in our hearts. We miss your wagging tail when we come home and how you would start barking as we came down the road approaching the house. Thanks for being a part of our family. We hope we were able to provide you with the love and comfort you needed, after your rough beginning. May you run free in the warm sun and may there be marrow bones and soup for you to fill your belly. We will never stop missing you, our Maisy girl.Phyllis KiznerPeabody, MassachusettsDecember 25, 2019
Remy
4/3/2008 - 12/9/2019We tend to adopt older pooches. We do this one dog at a time. Some folks get tired of their " old dog", and just want a puppy?? to Replace? this family member with a "new" puppy. 😟.
We had just recently lost our Spot, who lived out the last 5 years of his wonderful life with us. It had only been a couple of months since Spot crossed over.
An Email at work at the time, a school friend from long ago...there was a bio going viral, about this 5 year old boy, whose owner had to regretfully, had to give him up to North Shore, due to going into a nursing home. I could just feel that we were all meant for each other.
I called my husband, already retired, told him about Remy...It was my 63rd birthday. I then called the shelter, who informed us, that if we could get up there by 4 pm, we could meet him. They already had dozens of phone calls, regarding interest in Remy.
I left work early, my husband and I met up, we went there, fell in love immediately, spent time with Remy, filled out papers. Our regular vet was phoned and we were the chosen ones. We got to take Remy home to be part of our family, right then and there!
Remy was, from the beginning, so smart! He understood full sentences, and had a certain bark for each need that he had.
He communicated greatly with his eyes, and those eyebrows raising, comical expressions that he made, when he wanted something, like a belly rub. He would sit up like a human in the corner of the couch, wedged, with his belly showing.
My daughter lives right next door, our houses are attached . Remy lost his first fur-friend Puggles, about half way through his life with us. In a few months, there was a new friend, a puppy named Cleo. They became fast friends, and would run and play together, in our huge fenced in yard, for at least an hour or more a day. They would just scratch at the back door, when they wanted to come in, and would cuddle up on my daughter's couch for hours at a time.
Remy put on a little weight for his first few years with us. My daughter adopts human children as well, and opens her home to foster kids. He LOVED people food. Less than a year ago he had lost a few pounds, and then, slowly lost more. then more, He was always a very lumpy bumpy dog, with many small external tumors that were not that concerning to his vet.
A few weeks ago, Remy began to become VERY picky and would not eat dog food at all. I began to prepare him boiled chicken, and other things he would love. Fish was a favorite. It did not take long for him to loose his appetite completely. I had made an appt for his vet when his appetite had decreased beyond reasonable for a dog of his age. I often thought of my Dad, who lived to be 101, who became extremely picky as he aged. Remy's water intake suddenly became much less., at the beginning of last weekend.
Over last weekend, he became much worse. His appt was for Tuesday. On Sunday night he suffered a seizure, and fell down the stairs. We stayed with him all night, laying next to him with puppy pads changed frequently, and wrapped up in his favorite " blankie", whispering and patting him; giving him kisses on his forehead and snout, and telling him that we loved him and we were okay. He looked humiliated when he soiled himself. I just kept telling him it was okay...crying my tears on his ears. I am a retired nurse, and began hearing laboured breathing Sunday night.
Early in the morning, on Monday, I phoned his regular vet, explained what was going on, and asking for them to recommend a travel vet, as he was in such pain, I did not want for Remy to wait a day, my car was still in the shop, and my husband had to leave early for a long scheduled medical procedure. .What a wonderful, caring gentle woman, Dr. Sally Lynch, was sent to us. There was a thorough exam done, and Dr. Lynch agreed with my assessment. Remy needed to cross that rainbow bridge. I lay beside Remy during the entire procedure, and was telling him how good he is, how loved he is, while I was getting us both wet with my tears. We sent you covered by your favorite blanket, to be creamated, and to have the honor of being on top of my bookcase with our other wonderful past pooches
Remy was THE funniest, loving gentle fur- member that ever joined our family. He would actually do funny things, to making us laugh. It was one of his favorite things to do.
I will mourn forever for this boy...Remy the Dog....our very special, kind, sweet humorous big-boy. EVERYONE loved Remy. Oh....I forgot to add...Remy was SO gentle with toddlers. The absolute worst thing he ever did, was grab a cookie away! ( or, maybe a peanutbutter sandwich)!
Goodbye our sweetest boy, you will live in our hearts forever. I still keep wanting to let you out, think of what you might eat for dinner, and check the blanket lumps in our bed, as we all loved to snuggle up in the winters and watch TV in the evening.
Just to let you know, Remy, there were 186 typed out condolences on my FB page after you crossed the bridge. You were MOST LOVED!

Joe
10/9/2019 - 11/17/2019Joe - our healer, teacher and best friend. We will love and cherish you always. You connected with so many throughout your time here, and we feel so blessed to have been your human family.SANDRA SCHILLERNORTH BILLERICA, MassachusettsNovember 21, 2019
Fiona
9/10/2007 - 11/9/2019Fiona was beloved by all who met her. She loved giving kisses, belly and butt rubs, car rides, short walks (she was a stubborn English bulldog after all) and her family. She Is dearly missed but will live on forever in our hearts.Tim SmithWaltham, MassachusettsNovember 10, 2019
Tulip
4/2/2002 - 10/30/2019My loved and cherished companion who died almost 7 months after her sister. They graced my home and my life for many years. Tulip was sweet and funny, and so affectionate. She lay beside me in bed, purring, sometimes rubbing her face against mine. In her younger days she was frisky and playful. She was a great lover of food of all kinds, and hopeful about scoring a bit of people food every now and then and jumping on my lap on top of whatever book I might be reading. As an old lady she spent her days on my bed, often lying on my pillow. It is so hard to come into my quiet house at night, to not hear her little footsteps, and to climb into an empty bed without the sound of purring, and the soft little body beside me.Betty CanickBoston, MassachusettsNovember 4, 2019
Gizmo
Roxy
Jack
7/4/2004 - 9/30/2002My heart is broken in a million pieces. Words cannot describe the deep bond I had with my Jack. I've always loved my animals, but I never could have dreamed of the love and connection he and I truly shared. 15 years ago he came into our lives. He was along for the ride for our marriage, 3 different homes, and 2 children. He was my comfort through my darkest days of my dad's illness and ultimate passing. He instinctively knew when I needed him most, and I hope he felt I that reciprocated that love when he needed me. My "co-pilot", my "pinky snuggleboots", my "La-Lee", my little spoon during snuggles. I would have done anything to save him, but unfortunately sometimes these things are out of our hands. No amount of time would have been enough with him. I'll forever love him and remember him always. Rest easy, my sweet, perfect boy. 😞💔Lisa DisarioNorwood, MassachusettsOctober 2, 2019
