5/19/2005 - 11/22/2019Henry - 14 years ago you came into our lives and I had no idea how big of a difference you would make. When you went blind a few years ago I made you a promise that I'd get you through it. I think we did a pretty good job and while it was a lot of work I was happy to do it and it filled my heart each day. In looking back at the pictures over the years I can now see how hard Father Time has been on you this past year and I apologize for not seeing it sooner. I realized that the only gift I had left to give you was the gift of peace and I hope you are happy. It was hard but holding you right until the very end was the least I could do for my best friend.Tony SeckRaleigh, North CarolinaNovember 24, 2019
9/3/2005 - 11/8/2019Allegra was the sweetest dog I've ever known. We were together for 14 years. I really believe she lived her best life, and I know she would agree. From Philly, to Boston, to Raleigh this girl was by my side the entire time, and I thank her so much for this. May she be gallivanting in doggie heaven right now eating lots of beggins' and celebrating Christmas everyday! Love you so much Leggies! Rest in peace baby girl <3Kate, Phil, and Henry de VilmorinCary, North CarolinaNovember 22, 2019
5/19/2005 - 11/3/2019Ben was the sweetest, kindest, most curious, gentle, life loving dog I've ever known. Caring for him throughout his many years was a true privilege. Especially into his senior years. He was calm, patient and ever present. I will miss him for the rest of my life.Sara GressChapel Hill, North CarolinaNovember 18, 2019
3/20/2004 - 11/6/2019Tootie was our more than beloved son for over half our marriage. We were honored to become his parents when he was only 6 weeks old and broken when we lost him on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 at the age of 15 1/2.
Being in our house without Tootie's every loving presence is unbearable and yet we have three other pups that need momma and daddy too.
Tootie was the last of our "Original Seven" pups. From there we went up to 11 at our highest rescue number at one time and Tootie just always went with the flow - nothing upset him he just rolled with it. He taught them the routine by example and let everyone know that he was the boss.
For the last 2 years Tootie was with me h24/7 and his presence is missing all around me. Everywhere I go in our house is haunted my Tootie and all that have gone before him. Even trying to be outside - the backyard is missing his old man bark.
Words cannot express our anguish over losing Tootie and the love now gone from our lives.
Play, run and keep those pups in line for me Tootie - I'll see you again one day soon and I can't wait!

3/16/2010 - 10/7/2019Our Nico...the sweetest companion one could ask for! He loved the beach, swimming in the ocean, digging huge holes in the sand, his big brother Dante, playmates at the Village Common, particularly girlfriend Fiona and most of all, mommy and daddy. Pretty much, Nico loved all creatures, human, canine and feline. And all insects that fly had a special place in his heart...butterflies, dragonflies, even the occasional bee all filled his heart with joy!

So hard to say good by to our special hard to understand why he had to be sick. But we are so eternally grateful to have had him in our hearts for 9 1/2 joyful years! So many many snuggles. Thank you, our precious, sweet boy! We love you!

4/13/2008 - 9/24/2019We miss you so much, Nimbus. You were such a sweet kitty with the softest fur. Even though you lost your place as the "baby" of the family when your two human baby sisters came along, you were always so patient with them and waited your turn for cuddles and attention from Mom. I still expect you to jump up on the couch with me every night, and it breaks my heart all over again when I remember you're gone now. We didn't get enough time with you, but I'm glad to know you're not in pain anymore. We'll see you again someday.Sarah AllwardtHolly Springs, North CarolinaSeptember 30, 2019
11/1/2004 - 8/2/2019My Little Misha. A complete spit fire at 6.5 pounds. I would always tell everyone that if there was a cat fight to put their money on you. Despite all that you always greeted me when i came home from work to get pets and ear scratches and give me kitty nose rubs. I miss your loud meows at all hours of the night when you had to carry your toy around the house. I miss you crawling under the covers and curling up for a nap. Traveling to the mountains won't be the same with you gone. Autumn misses you too. Even though you two were not very close, she still misses your presence.

Rest easy baby girl. and give Neko and KittyKat hugs and kisses for mommy.

11/13/2008 - 8/15/2019On Thursday, August 15, 2019, around 2:00 pm, our sweet Zia passed away peacefully at home with her head cradled gently in my arms. Only six days prior, she'd been the happy, playful dog we'd always known, but with a little cough. On the evening of August 12th, worried about an increase in breathing rate, I brought her to the emergency vet. The next day, she was diagnosed with aggressive sarcoma, and her body quickly deteriorated. The suddenness of her illness has been both painful and consoling.

Jesse and I got her in New Mexico as a 6-week-old puppy. She was our “only child” for four years before becoming a family dog. Although that was not a role she was particularly excited about, she excelled none the less. Isaac (age 6) laments the loss of our dining room "vacuum", and Victor (age 4) misses her most at night, when she would provide security in his bedroom.

True to her labrador nature, she never met a stranger. If she ever went missing, we knew we'd find her on a neighbor's porch, or even inside their house. But there was one time when she was truly missing, and all of our neighbors graciously joined us in the search.

She was my constant art studio companion, as well as my creative muse. I have painted countless images of her. She had the most beautiful angles and was an exceptional model. Her absence in our home and my work space has left a palpable and painful void.

I miss her bright, brown eyes watching me constantly, her wet nose nudging my elbow affectionately, and her big, warm, body hogging our queen-sized bed. The fur she shed will be in our home for years to come, and countless loving memories will be in our hearts forever.
