Tak
4/11/2009 - 6/12/2019Today, i felt like I was losing my breath never to catch it again. “We’ve had so many happy years , what iis to come can hold no fears, you do not want me to suffer so, the time has come, let me go”
We selfishly wanted more time, but time was not on our side. We couldn’t bear the thought of him suffering from the horrible effects of degenerative myelopathy. He fought so damn hard to make sure WE were ok and put the bravest face on.
We feel incredibly grateful for Dr. Rachel with Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice for her patience, compassion and care in our home. She gave us unlimited time to share stories of the past, play modified tug with toys, ate twinkies for the first time, laugh, cry until we were empty...for the time being.
His big personality will never be replaced, and the pride he took in providing protection for our family. The training David Kelly and @randicriswell invested with local and county police, civilians and families that ended up becoming so much of who he was. Even after his training was complete, he never stopped working.
He’s been my best friend and random cameo in my workout clips. He’s been faithfully at my side during one of the more challenging seasons of my life. I lost a of part of me, but gained a new outlook on life because of him.
I don’t know how I’ll wake up tomorrow, not seeing his bed at the foot of ours. His food bowl empty, and the apartment much bigger without his 90 pound self. His life with us transformed right then and there as I kissed and sobbed over his precious body. My words go on, but my immense feelings just can’t be expressed in this post.
Thank you to Karen Newberry @crateescapejonesboro for many years of house sitting and taking on our gorgeous beast with love and kindness. Thank you @eculpepper13 for being the first vet to begin the supportive care almost 3 years ago.
My Arkansas besties, you lifted us up immediately with concern and prayer.
My Connecticut fitness family @cyclebarcanton for all the love texts and phone calls. “Hold me firm and speak to me until my eyes no longer see”.

Rocky
5/4/2009 - 6/8/2019Rocky was a once in a lifetime dog. He was a beautiful Rottweiler that weighed 140lbs, but he was a gentle giant. Rocky was a great dog , friend and companion to me and our family the last 11 years. I adopted Rocky when he was 8 months old, I’m not sure who saved who, but I know all the walks I took with Rocky probably saved my life helping me to get my diabetes and blood sugar under control. Words can not express how sad we are to lose Rocky. He gave us 11 years of loyalty and companionship. He truly was our best friend. We have two other dogs and they are wonderful , but the house seems a little empty without him.
Rocky got sick 10 days ago. Rocky fought hard to overcome his illness, and we tried so hard to nurse him back to health but in the end it wasn’t to be. On Saturday 6/8/19 we made the tough call to put Rock down because he was suffering so much. He’d really been suffering. Hadn’t eaten in 6 days and could not walk or get up. So we made the decision to let him go even though we didn’t want to, but could not stand to see him suffer. Rocky is survived by his loving human parents and his dog sisters DJ and Kit Kat who also miss him.

Anyway we are thankful for the for the time we had with Rocky and the wonderful memories we had with him . We will never forget you. We know you are no longer in pain and are happy at the Rainbow Bridge. Until we meet again

Buddy
6/11/2019We loved our Buddy very much. We are stay at home doggy parents, so we were with him all the time. We believe he is with his sister, Rainbow. Love you, Buddy. It's 4:00 somewhere - time for your dingo!!Andra LambertArlington, TexasJune 13, 2019
Clover
4/28/2015 - 6/10/2019My sweet Clover, you weren't here with me nearly long enough - no amount of time would have been long enough. I loved you from the moment I saw you, you pulled me out of the dark and made me happy everyday. You were and will forever be my "Boo Bear" "Moonpie" "Peach" "Monkey" and "Little chicken". You loved other dogs and would give full tail circles for a good peanut butter filled bone. You were so shy and didn't like people, but the few that you did you loved fiercely. We will all miss your big black nose poking out when we opened the door and you rolling over for belly rubs. I have always been so proud of you, thank you for loving me and trusting me and letting me be your mama, I was beyond lucky to have had you. I hope you are at peace and pain free, running with Memphis and Calli and that your Great Grandma is taking care of you. I used to tell you all the time that you had my whole heart and you always will, I will love you and miss you forever.Erin WoodWest View, PennsylvaniaJune 13, 2019
India
12/31/2003 - 6/11/2019India (AKA Endymion's For Auld Lang Syne) passed peacefully at noon on June 11, 2019. She is survived by her loving human parents and her Springer brother William. She had several medical issues, and fought them all with determination and strength, but in the end the worst of them overcame her. It was so hard to let her go, but she was very, very tired, and it was time. We could see it in her eyes. Run free, my darling girl.Vicky BroganLas Vegas, NevadaJune 13, 2019
Gator
7/4/2008 - 6/10/2019Gator Hughes was not just a dog she was my best friend. She loved her family unconditionally & comforted us for almost 11 years. She talked to us with her soulful eyes & we knew what she was thinking. It was a bond so strong you can’t explain it unless you have loved a dog as much as we have loved Gator. She bravely & strongly fought her battle with cancer. She loved her family so much she didn’t want to let go. Gator was the greatest most selfless creature on this planet. So it makes sense when her Golden Heart stopped beating Saturday it hurt so badly. I hope you are pain free Gator. I hope you are running through fields of flowers. I hope it always smells like bacon. I hope it never thunderstorms because they make you tremble. I hope you find a good spot full of sun for all the endless naps you can take. I hope you know You will NEVER loose your Best Friend Rank. I loved you so much. I hope you don’t forget us because we will never forget you. I hope it didn’t hurt. I hope there is ice cream & lots of fire trucks to howl at. You taught us to be forgiving, that people do mean well. We thank God for your time with us. We know he always takes the BEST. Your Dad Brad & Mom Jenna we’re so brave & selfless to set you free. We know when we come to meet you for eternity you will be doing what you always did waiting for us at the front door. Our hearts are broken but we know you are in a better place Gator girl. You will forever be THE G.O.A.T.
Love, Grammy

Molly
5/7/2019 - 6/11/2019As all pet lovers know these are our best friends, forever will be missed. I will miss her for a long time hopefully the heartache will end soon. Dr Maggie was so helpful coming to our house to put Molly down and assure us it was the right thing to do rather than wait as thing could get worse anytime. I hope Molly is having fun in Pet Heaven and maybe I'll see her again one day.Chuck XikesLehigh Acres, FloridaJune 12, 2019

Nigel
8/5/2005 - 4/8/2019Nigel - we miss you, little buddy. Every time I walk in the door and you aren't there to greet me, my heart aches. I know that you're having a grand time across the rainbow bridge. You were so old and fragile when you came to us, I love imagining you filled with youth and vigor, running across rainbow heaven. I hope you watch us fondly, as we often think of you so fondly. I still cry when I think about you. I miss your meows, I miss your dramatic feet, (so dramatic!) and I miss your cuddles. I miss watching you try to climb onto the chair and look at me with incredulity, demanding help as the elegant old man that you were deserved. I miss the way you would greet me at the door every time I came home. You mean the world to us, buddy. Your dad and I miss you so much. Rest in peace, my love.Nicole JacksonSeattle, WashingtonJune 12, 2019
