Tiger
7/4/2001 - 9/4/2020We have had Tiger since he was a tiny kitten with “big” ears. We adopted him and his brother after they were found abandoned at a stop sign. Both of these cats have brought our family so much joy. Tiger loved to be taken for walks in our pet stroller. He loved treats and would beg for them. He cuddled a lot with his brother, Nacho. Nacho would often pick fights but Tiger would walk away and then cone back and give him kisses. My daughter would dress him in build-bear cloths...he never ever minded. He loved the attention.
We miss him terribly and so does his brother. We will always remember our special, sweet Tiger.

Poco
8/31/2004 - 8/1/2020We are so grateful to have had our sweet Poco for 16 years. She was a sassy, spunky gal who enjoyed countless adventures and family pack snuggles with us in those 16 years. We lost her lifetime partner Gus 3 years ago and like to imagine them together again. In fact, the evening after she passed, there was a magical vibrant full double rainbow in view from our home and it just felt like a clear and loving message from both Poco and Gus that they are reunited at last and waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge.Lori HAmherst, New YorkAugust 7, 2020

Whiskey
6/1/2009 - 7/27/2020My dearest Whiskey,
If you left this world today certain of anything, I hope it was that Mama loves you. You have been her best friend since the day she met you at the shelter, when you were 7 weeks old, dangling from the roof of your kennel. Your siblings were asleep, and you were already exploring. You were born bold, curious and resilient, and you inspired me to be those things, too.
You were unwaveringly loyal, my constant shadow. And whatever shape I was in at any given time, that was good enough for you. My mom said that you “idolized” me, that you looked at me like I held the key to the universe. She also told me that you were as tender and engaged as you were, in large part because of how you were treated, because of how cherished you were your whole life. But really, it’s the other way around, little boy. You were my model, and I am a better person today because of you.
You never held a grudge. You were hospitable and charming, welcoming visitors and sitting like a gentleman with Mama and her friends, in your own chair at our kitchen table. You shared your emotions honestly, you readily made your needs known (yet asked for so little), and you were generous with your affection, especially toward me. Life would get busy, and you’d insist we stop to snuggle. I’d get a gentle tap on the arm, and your dinner-plate eyes would be my cue. You sprinkled joy wherever you went, and I don’t think it ever occurred to you how important you were.
I often told you that I loved you so much, it felt as though my heart could burst. I’d look at you, and I’d think how lucky I was to be yours. You were my daily reminder that purity and goodness are alive in this world. That our greatest gifts in life are the beings we share it with.
We endured losses together, we embarked on adventures together, we grew older together. We had our special, everyday routines. You made me laugh with your sense of mischief and your oh-so-polite persistence, and the way you carried certain toys all over the house, and how you’d suddenly feel full of beans and be compelled to tear around, sounding like a herd of tiny elephants.
I’d joke that you were the rarest of creatures, a feline pacifist. You didn’t stalk or hunt out in your beloved backyard, and not only because you were a house cat with a reliable meal service (i.e., Mama), but because you were inherently kind, just a humble observer. You growled maybe a handful of times in your entire life, usually at big guys in hats, and you never harmed another soul.
We were always happy to see each other; your orange striped “flag” would go up, and you’d trot toward me as though we’d been apart for days – when really, I’d just been in another room. We knew each other like the backs of our own respective paws. I joined you near the beginning of your life, and it was my honor today to join you at its sunset. This was simply your time, even if I wish we’d gotten more.
A bond like ours doesn’t die. Our bodies do, but our shared story won’t, not ever. Thank you, my precious Whiskey, for teaching me about friendship, for showing me life’s sweetness, and for shepherding me through the last 11-plus years. You gave me more than I could ever repay, and I will reserve this hole in my heart for you, for always.
Mama loves you.

Remy
9/12/2012 - 7/23/2020On July 23, 2020 we not only lost our dog but a significant part of our family. We loved Remy dearly and anyone that knew us knew that. He was included in everything we did. We made sure he had the best and that his needs were met. He brought so much joy & happiness to our household. He had a wonderful disposition. He was a sweet dog. He loved us unconditionally and we gave it right back to him. Remy had a lot of personality and he made us laugh. He loved people. He was an inquisitive little guy and he loved smelling plants and flowers. He would race around the yard like he was at the races. He never missed an opportunity to chase rabbits. He was king of the yard! When we would go on walks people always commented on how beautiful he was, before asking permission to pet him. If you said give me five Remy he would give you his paw. He was a smart dog and he knew how to make you feel better. One time a friend of mine agreed to pick Remy up from the Doggie Daycare after she picked him up she called me and asked if anything was wrong with Remy's leg. I said no why, she explained that he would not get in the car. I thought that was odd but we hung up. I thought about it and called her back and asked if she had anybody with her she said yes her new boyfriend. I laughed and said Remy has been taught not to get in the car with strangers. We both laughed Remy was one smart cookie. Remy will always have a place in our hearts. We miss him dearly and will treasure the memories!Cindy OdomWilliamsville, New YorkJuly 26, 2020

7/20/2001 - 7/21/2020I wish I had words. This love has been by my side for 19 years. We’ve been apart for one day and already I miss him. My heart is broken.Lisa CBuffalo, New YorkJuly 22, 2020
Bodey
12/16/2020 - 7/9/2020Bodey started our life together. He was with us through the many apartments, our first home, our wedding, the births of our daughter and our son and the first two years of our daughters life. He was our constant companion and best friend. We will love you and miss you forever Bodey 💙 Thank you for growing with us. Love you buddy 💙Jess BuchananBoston, New YorkJuly 20, 2020
Bullis
5/24/2009 - 7/14/2020HI Buddy! Hope you are doing well and have reconnected with Lily and Hercules! I hope that you are able to run around and can see everything clear as day! I hope that you are eating all the food and treats and loving every minute of it. I hope that you are showing off your sweet dance moves to everyone!

Most of all I hope you know how much i loved you and how much you meant to me. You were my family and went through everything with me. You are already missed and can never be replaced. You were mine and i was yours. I love you :)

Duke
10/4/2011 - 7/6/2020Duke was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy. The vet specialist said we didn't have much time left with him. It was hard to watch him go from running around in the yard, chasing after animals, jumping and playing to slowly having the inability to walk correctly. Even through it all, he was still as dorky as ever. Sadly, we knew it was time to say good-bye last week. He was only 8.

The house is so quiet and lonely without him. We miss waking up to him and seeing his face. And we miss giving him a kiss before bed. But we're so happy that our paths crossed and that we had the privilege to love the greatest dog that ever lived. Not a day will go by that we won’t think of him.
