Zeus Schleede
5/15/2017 - 4/15/2017RIP my beloved Zeus of 18 years. I don't hardly know what life is without you. He was the most reliable companion, very playful in this younger days chasing my feet around the house. He was very loyal and demonstrated his unconditional love to me on a daily basis. Oh I will miss your cuddles.

After 7 years of battling chronic kidney disease, his disease progressed to Stage 4 recently and finally after getting into an almost catatonic state I knew it was time to say goodbye.

We have moved over 10 times and lived in Michigan, Indiana, Chicago, Hong Kong and Seattle. And I don't how a home can be a home without him. You are well loved.

Bobby B
1/1/2006 - 4/7/2017Bobby B you will forever be missed. You touched everyone's lives. Even the ones who weren't sure about pit bulls. Its hard to explain to people who you were to us, that you touched us more than any person could have. I know that Steven Connor and myself will never have a love like this again. You were the best dog anyone could have asked for. I am so happy that I got to meet you when I did.
You will forever be our Bobby B!

Biscuit
4/1/2006 - 1/31/2017Biscuit (Mr. B as we all loved to call him) wasn't with us for nearly long enough. We adopted him as hospice knowing he was ten years old and had a cancerous mass on his leg. The rescue we adopted him from (Thank you so much to Power of the Paw!) told me he probably only had about 6 months to live. But I didn't believe it. From the moment I first saw his photo on Facebook I knew Biscuit was supposed to be with us. It only took me about 10 minutes to fill out the adoption application, even though I had no intention previously of adopting a third Boxer! But as soon as we saw him and read his story that was it. Love at first sight! I flew to Spokane to pick him up and the moment I met him it was if we'd loved each other for ever! My partner Marda had driven from Walla Walla to Spokane so that she could drive us back to Seattle. Mr. B hopped into the car just like he'd been waiting to go home with us.

I'd been a bit concerned that my female Boxer wouldn't love having another dog to share the attention with. But from the moment Kaitlyn met him she seemed to know that Mr. B was special and that he needed her love and nurturing. My younger boy, Stormy , on the other hand, was a teensy bit jealous at first, but Biscuit was so sweet and didn't seem to mind at all. He just melded right into our family as if he'd always been a part of it.

We agreed to adopt Mr. B thinking that we would be bringing home a dog that was literally at death's door. I didn't know if I'd have to carry him upstairs, if he'd be able to get around at all, what amount of energy he would even have. I was so shocked when I met him and realized he had more energy than I had ever expected and really still acted like a puppy in so many ways. No way this dog was going to die within 6 months!!! I was certain that with all of the love, and care, and good food, and nutritional supplements that he would prove the doctors wrong. So we got busy doing all of the wonderful fun things that any dog would have on his bucket list. We went for so many walks, and he LOVED car rides!! He loved to go into the hardware store and have everyone tell him how handsome he was. We ate ice cream cones and went to the beach, we made a trip to Eastern Washington where he met horses, probably for the first time ( and really liked them!). One of the things Mr. B loved to do was "talk". He was a very, very talkative guy!! Especially when he was ready for his dinner!! And he loved to howl with his fur sister Kaitlyn and I when the sirens went by. And he was surrounded by a houseful of people who loved and adored him.

We found out very quickly that Mr. Biscuit had horrible separation anxiety. I am so grateful that, thanks to my amazing housemates, he never had to be left alone after that. He either went with one of us or someone was home with him. And he flourished!! He was a happy. happy boy! Unfortunately, about 4 months after he came to live with us Mr. B's tumor split open and that was the beginning of the end. My amazing housemates Lobo and Adrien took such special care of Biscuit during this time. Every single day they cleaned and bandaged his wound. And loved and comforted him. Thankfully it wasn't painful for him until the very last day. But this wound took a huge toll on Mr. B's energy and after a month or so it became obvious that he was not doing well. On his final trip to the Vet we found that he also had kidney failure. We were all completely heartbroken. I struggled with the decision to have him put to sleep and prayed that I would know whether or not this was the right time. Well, Mr. B and his infinite love made it very clear to me that he was ready to leave and go to run free over the rainbow bridge.

We are all so incredibly grateful that we had the privilege of spending the last bit of Biscuit's life with him. He had a huge capacity for love and he changed all of our lives with that love and with his sweet and funny personality. I've never known an old dog who was such a puppy at heart. I know without a shadow of a doubt that Mr. B is running joyously through the fields, no tumor to hinder him, with all of his puppy energy.

I am especially grateful to Dr. Ashleigh with Lap of Love. Dr. Ashleigh allowed Biscuit to be surrounded by everyone who loved him so dearly as he went to sleep for the last time. Alex played her guitar and sang him a song, he ate steak and oreo cookies and peanut butter, and he fell asleep with his head in my lap as we all told him how much we all loved him. We will miss this sweet boy forever and will never forget his loving soul, his wonky puppy ears, those huge gorgeous eyes and that voice of his. We love you Mr. B <3 <3 <3

Beans
4/4/2004 - 3/30/2017Beans, it was your time and it was so hard to let you go. But I will remember you as my bright red boy who loved to run and jump and tried ever so hard, until those last days, to catch a squirrel and not as you were these last few days.

I will miss trying to get the sap out of your fur. I will always remember you spitting treats back out at me when I tried to train you to sit and lay down. You did it because I asked, but you weren't happy about it. You were stubborn. You were me. You opened the cupboards jumped and grabbed an unopened bag of wasabi peas. What dog eats a whole bag of wasabi peas? You hated rain and refused to get your paws wet, but loved snow. You pretended you needed to go outside just so you could lounge in the sun. I could not have loved you more.

Now you are free to once again be a part of nature. May some part of you catch the wind and fly with the birds you chased off our lawn. Let some of you run with the river water you tried to rescue us from. Become part of the soil that the mushrooms you occasionally ate (much to our chagrin) grow from and feed other animals and forms of life. Nestle yourself among the leaves of the trees the squirrels climb and get the best of them.

Be a part of all things. Be all around. The only place you are confined to is our hearts and memories.

Boomer
7/15/2003 - 3/29/2017Sad day today in the loss of my buddy Boomer. This beautiful little guy came into our lives and almost immediately claimed me as his very own and wasn't real excited about having to share me with anyone. He did finally yield to Liesyl's affection and appreciated her Love and her lap very much. (Who wouldn't huh?)
I'm going to miss this little guy and it's just not going to be the same around here for a while. Thank you Boomer for 14 years of Love and affection and may you Rest In Peace.

Special thanks to a company called "Lap of Love", who made it possible for Boomer to pass in the comfort of his own home and the security of his buddies lap.
These people are just fantastic and really made the process a little bit more bearable to go through. Thank you Dr Ashleigh Rhoades for your kind and very compassionate service.

Gumbo
2/8/2004 - 3/7/2017Gumbo, aka Gump, Gumpster, Gumby, The Great Gumbolini, Gumpalufagus, Gumbotron, Pupsk, Mr. Gumbo, Mr. Bear, Gumbo Bear, Gumbino, Gumbo Bean, Furry Frijole, Speckle Head, Baby Gumbito, our dancing Rasta pup and the furriest, lovingest third of our family, is barking at squirrels and snuffling hay in some great beyond. His spirit will continue to herd Jeff and I into the same space so he can watch us, sniff intently at our knees to judge our comings and goings, rest his head on my laptop to remind me to get out and play, nuzzle us when he knows we're sad, dance between our legs when he knows we're happy, and dutifully chase away the mail truck to always ensure the safety of his pack. I miss him so desperately that I sometimes can't breathe, but am so happy that Jeff and I got to be his daddy and mommy for over 13 years. I love you so, so much, Gumbo Bear. There'll never be another pupsk like you.Cassandra HunterTukwila, WashingtonMarch 18, 2017
Peru
7/22/1996 - 3/7/2017Dear my baby angel Peru,

You were my angel sent from Heaven. You gave me reason to live, even at times I didn't want to. Life was challenging for us, the past 20 years we have been together. I am where I am today because I had you by my side. You were my reason to get up in the morning, you were my reason to breathe and you gave me strength to overcome challenges in life. Even when the world fell apart, even when others come and go, you were there by my side and protected me. My anchor. My angel.

I am so blessed to have had you as my daughter and it breaks my heart that you are not by my side. I will cherish every moment of the 20 years we spent together. I miss you very much but we will meet again.

I come home and call for you, but realize shortly after that you are no longer here. I picked up your ashes today. I cried and couldn't stop shaking. Peru, guess what. The lady who cremated you was so nice and to comfort me, she offered to give me a necklace with some of your ashes inside. She doesn't normally do this, but she said you were a sweet, pretty girl and that she would like for me to have the necklace with your ashes. I am wearing it now. I now have you with me at all times and I know that you will continue to look over me and protect me. I will never take this off and I will die, buried with your ashes.

There will be no other friend, daughter and family like you.

If my love could have made you live, then you would have lived forever. I love you more than anything in this world and I would die for you. Thank you for the beautiful journey you shared with me.

You and I are forever bound together and we will never separate. You are part of me and we will meet again. We will meet again and be right next to each other where we belong. We will talk next to each other like we always have been for the last 20 years.

Love,
Your Mommy of 20 years

Bowie
8/1/1999 - 3/6/2017Bowie, my dear friend and loving companion. I will miss you always, your love, affection, warm cuddles and loud singing meows. You have been with me through the best and worst of times, always a comforting presence. I wasn't ready to let you leave this world, but I knew it was time. You had grown so weak and you wouldn't touch your food anymore. But you were also a fighter and I could see that fire inside of you trying to keep carrying on despite how ill you had become. I knew it was time to let go my sweet angel. You will always be in my heart and the hearts of those who you always brought a smile to. I love you little buddy, rest in peace.Bellevue, WashingtonMarch 7, 2017
