Cinnamon
9/10/2008 - 9/30/2019I had to say goodbye to my sweet girl today. For the last 12 years she did more for me than I could ever put into words. My heart is broken but I know you are in a better place, Cinnamon.
Thank you for all the laughs... and cries together. You were the best pup a girl could ever ask for and I will never forget you. I hope you’re feasting on endless peanut butter ritz crackers already! ‘So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we are far apart. For every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.’ I love you Cinny💔❤️ P.s
Thank you for giving me one last big smile👼

Finnegan
7/25/2009 - 10/9/2019To our boy Finnie,

There are some who would say that writing this note makes no sense. After all, you aren’t a reader; preferring the outdoors as a source for entertainment and knowledge.

Those holding that view, though, don’t know you the way we do, your mom and me.

Like any communication between us, the language and format are unimportant. A letter, a whisper, a hug, a look, a moment of silent closeness. In all these, meaning flows in a vocabulary that has no need for structure; no clumsy limits.

Despite your intolerance for reading, and despite your being a dog, and even despite your having departed us, Finnegan, I know that my words reach you now. As they always have. As they always will. Thoughts, like these assembled, bridge our universes. I only need to steer these thoughts from my heart to yours.

You are that miracle. A wonderful example for every creature living this journey together. For each of us, the odds of existing at all are hundreds of trillions to one. How then is it that so few set your example? You were born into indifference; cast aside coldly, and cruelly left unable to show your deeply genuine, trusting, and loving heart. But you were driven by a right to live a purposeful life. You fought. You survived. You never gave up as it would have been so easy to do. As so many have done. Your miracle, Finnegan, is your determination to have joy and to bring joy. To never feel sorry for yourself. To never give up until you face existence on an even footing and declare that whatever may come next in life for you, it’s yours to live. My boy, you’ve shown us all.

You have suffered under human ugliness, and blossomed in the fullest embrace of love and caring. You prefer love.

As I watched you grow and learn to become whom you were meant to be, I was amazed that there was always more joy unlocked year after year. No matter how the echoes of your early life took their toll on your body later, still there was an ocean of warmth, kindness, generosity, and serenity that poured out of you into everyone who met you. For if they really listened to you, and spoke through the separation to your heart, they knew you, and they were drawn to you.

Children love you the most. I think because children are like tuning forks of the eternal connection we all share. They can hear the vibrations, and feel from you the healing soul. They must sense that only someone who has been so wounded can truly heal, and only someone who has recovered from being unloved can offer love so willingly.

I have to resist a temptation here to attempt to relive with you in this letter some of our best experiences and times together. There are too many, and you know I’d forget the best ones and tell the others badly. For what it’s worth, I’ll tell anyone wanting to know more about you that they only need to picture how it feels on a sunny day. Feel the sun. Smell the air. Let the breeze wash over. Pause. In that moment is your gift. Like a rechargeable battery, you take in joyfulness from the simplest of life’s moments, store it, and then discharge it in a pure form on those fortunate enough to know you, bringing them sunny days even on the coldest of nights.

Finnegan, you are my son, my boy. Just as your brothers are. All my boys. I’m proud to be your dad. Your mom loves you beyond words. We regret only there wasn’t enough time to give you more and to see you continue your transformation. Our sadness, though acute now, pales beside our great fortune to have received your love these years. Thank you so much.

None of us will again howl alone or lonely. This is not goodbye - because you did it. You won. You prove that even the least of us can achieve what we’re all here for; Finnegan, you matter.

Dad & Mom

Cagey
11/19/2004 - 9/9/2019Cagey is Missed so very much every day!!! Not a day goes by that I don't feel like a Huge chunk of my heart went with Cage over the Rainbow Bridge. I never thought the day would come when I would be saying goodbye forever to my dearly beloved son.
Cagey had the most beautiful soul. He was so kind and sweet, generous beyond words. He would show how delighted he was to see me, even if I was only gone for 10 minutes. He would need to greet me with a toy or some fuzz he picked off the carpet and present it as a token of his affection for his mommy. Cagey would always leave a few treats behind hidden in his blanket for his brother to find and enjoy. He would growl, " I LOVE YOU" with every kiss I planted on his beautiful face. He would moo for Cheese and run around the house in utter delight when I made him a meal his taste buds found appealing.
Cagey wasn't just any dog, he was the BEST son a mother could have. I Love him with all my heart and soul. I am hoping he can feel my love in the heavens and know he was blessed with a mother that will continue to adore him from afar. I hate that he isn't here any longer to smile at me as I showered him with love and give him the hugs and kisses I so desire to provide. My heart misses him so bad.

Cesar
9/28/2011 - 10/5/2019Mi Cesar, my big baby... It has been over a week and we miss you so much. it hurts not to have you around. At times I find myself hoping you'll come out and jump on me as you did every morning to say hello and sweet kisses. I hear your collar jingle as I open and close the door and breaks my heart we will no longer see you run up to us. You marked our lives forever Cesar. Letting you go was one of the hardest decisions I've had to make. Your Big sister Piper misses you too. She wonders where you've been. You will forever be in our hearts. Until we meet again my sweet Cesar.Maria Lorena CedenoFairfield, CaliforniaOctober 16, 2019
Bailey
2/4/2004 - 10/14/2019Oh Bailey- you were by my side for almost 16 years. I love you so much!! I miss you so much!! Everyone that met you knew how special you were!

I love you buddyJacqueline Gill-GregoryOviedo, FloridaOctober 15, 2019
Edison
11/1/2008 - 10/11/2019When I brought you home from the Salt Lake County Humane Society in January of 2009, I could not conceive of how dramatically you would change my life. I didn’t believe in soulmates until I met you, and I now know a person’s soulmate can definitely be a dog. You were the most incredible animal I have ever known. I cannot wait until the day I see you again.Sarah HeimbachCoopersburg, PennsylvaniaOctober 15, 2019
Romeo
7/5/2005 - 10/13/2019Romeo our handsome boy, we will always remember the love you brought to our family and those you met.
May you frolic in daffodils, chase lots of squirrels, go on long walks, buzz around with your brother Koa playing lots of tug-o-war, eat the tastiest of treats including whipping cream and bacon, go on long car rides with your head out the window and lay in the grass in a nice sunny spot (your favorite) for the rest of eternity.
We will miss you sweet boy, but know you are at peace and not suffering anymore.

Rumi-blu Rosell
6/7/2011 - 10/11/2019My precious girl...I see you everywhere. Every memory, every room in the house, everything, includes you...I miss you so much I cannot even catch my breath in some moments. Thank you for loving us so much & for making life, sweet . Since you've transitioned, I've heard 'I will wait for you' by Mumford at least four times. Though I know I will see you again when it's my turn to come home, do not wait for me. Go play. Go fly free. Go bask in the sun. Go stick your head up high as you lay in the green grass & a cool breeze ruffles your fur. Go bark at Bella, Samson, & Bono. Look to them to show you the ropes. Go & be free.

My love for you transcends this earth. It is eternal. You took part of me with you. Keep me with you as I will keep you with me. And when it is my turn to come 'home,' I know I will be greeted by you. I can't wait my darling girl. I can't wait to see you again!

Samson
8/8/2006 - 10/12/2019On Saturday, October 12th, 2019 our family had to say goodbye to our dear sweet Samson. His body was being consumed with tumors and his back legs just weren't working like they used to. I couldn't imagine a more loving and loyal dog than this little guy. He lit up our lives and brought us so much joy. We will miss his downward dog stretching in the morning and the rhythm of his little snore; sometimes not so little- haha. He was very playful and was always so great with our girls, Tori and Madison. 13 years with this little guy right by my side all the time. He wouldn't leave a room unless I left first; loyal to the very end. He was an incredible gift to our lives. We have no doubt that he feels like a puppy again and he's reunited with his best friend, Charlie in Heaven. Although we are feeling heartbroken and the house feels empty without him, we are so grateful for the endless memories with him that we will cherish forever.Nicole FeelyLas Vegas, NevadaOctober 14, 2019
