Lilly
9/16/2005 - 7/27/2020Lilly was in our lives for almost 16 years, 3/4 of my youngest son’s life. She was such a sweet and funny kitty, and if she fit, she would sit. Her health took a turn last Christmas, and she lost most use of her back legs. I’m so grateful that I was able to work from home these past months, so I could take care of her, and spend as much time with her as possible. We lost her brother, our black lab Ollie, two months ago, to the day. There were very bonded, so it gives me a bit of comfort knowing they are together again . I miss her so much, it physically hurts, but I’m glad she was in my arms, in her home, at peace.Jamie CoganIndianapolis, IndianaJuly 28, 2020
Daisy Duke
6/23/2011 - 7/27/2020My poor girl was all worn out and cancer had set in. We will miss her everyday.Brande BrownSaint Cloud, FloridaJuly 28, 2020
Dakota
8/4/2004 - 7/27/2020Sweet Dakota left this world peacefully after sharing our lives for almost 17 years. Cody gave us joy every day. She was a kind and gentle pet who was happy to meet friends and strangers, loved her long walks with me and her "dad," used to take up more than her "half" of our bed and never hurt a flea. In her last few years, she was my shadow - the first furry face I saw in the morning and the last one I saw at night. Her paw prints are engraved on my heart forever. RIP, my loving and faithful friend.Martine Bertin-PetersonDoylestown, PennsylvaniaJuly 28, 2020
Chopper
12/31/2004 - 7/27/2020Our hearts are heavy as we grieve the loss of our little smushie face Chopper. He loved so much and just wanted to be by his people’s side all the time. His happy face made us all love him more. He loved life and loved his long walks. His best friend Chewy was by his side licking his face everyday showing his love.Melanie HoytKissimmee, FloridaJuly 28, 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.

Spike Puppy Pants Gallegos
5/1/2006 - 7/17/2020My heart is broken and a piece is missing. Spike is one of the best things to happen to our family. He stayed by my side when I was hurt and was always glad to see me when I would come home. We learned so much together. I can't wait until I get to see him again running toward me with his perfect legs and puppy kisses. I will miss him everyday. Our beautiful fluffy boy. He will forever be our Puppy Pants, our Spikarelli, Spikers, the best puppers and our best friend.Julie GallegosHerriman, UtahJuly 28, 2020
Honnah Reese
2/14/2004 - 7/24/2020How do you say goodbye to a pet who has been a constant source of joy, unconditional love and support for 16 years? The house feels so empty without her in it. I'm glad her decline and struggles has ended. She was blessed with the most peaceful passing. Being loved on by her Mom and Dad. Taking a nap in her own bed in her own home. She wasn't afraid. She was at peace and she was loved.Diane ReeseReading, PennsylvaniaJuly 27, 2020
Butchie
8/6/2005 - 7/26/2020Yesterday we said goodbye to our beautiful, funny, lovable, sweet Butchie von Terrier. We made the decision earlier in the week to let him cross the Rainbow Bridge to Heaven. We got to hug him for the whole week and cry and tell him how much we love him and how much we were going to miss him. We let him know the whole week that he can go, and even though we will be hurting, we will be ok. We let him know that he deserved the peace. He got his favorite meal on Friday night and then special meals all day Saturday ending with his favorite dessert. Sunday morning I got up with him and took him outside in the yard where he loved to lay and hang with me everyday and we watched the sunrise. Afterwards I made him a bacon and egg breakfast and helped him eat it to ensure he got to enjoy it. Then we went back outside and waited for the Dr. Kim Slade from Lap of Love to come. Everyone got their good byes with him and told him everything we wanted him to know. We took a family photo, and we all look like crap but who cares, it is a photograph of the last time we all got to be together. We did it in his favorite place in the whole wide world, his home. He loved being home and he loved being with us. It was peaceful and even beautiful. Our boy is finally free of the discomfort he was dealing with. We are so sad in this house, the pain is unbearable, but we know it was time for Butchie to go. We were hoping we could wait till after his 15th birthday on August 6th but it wasn't meant to be. From the moment he entered our lives he became our baby and always acted like one. We truly believed he thought he was human. He was our "first" baby and our son's big brother. He was never mean to any person or animal he met (except for robins, he wanted to catch one so bad and would sit on the window sills stalking them). He would get mad and not speak to us for days when we would go on vacation and leave him with someone. He loved sleeping with us, as a matter of fact, he had to or he would cry all night- we never let him cry, he slept with us. When we were hurting he would snuggle into us and comfort us. We wish he was here now with that comfort because we are hurting. We wish there was a window in heaven where we can see how happy he must be now being able to see, hear, think clearer, walk, stand, jump and his favorite thing, run. We are waiting for his ashes to come home to us , the place he loved the most. We need him home, we want him home, with us. Butchie, as my husband would say, was "The greatest dog that ever lived!" Even in death. We love you Butchie, we miss you too damn much already. You truly were our joy and love- you were perfect. We will see you in Heaven when it's our turn. For now, say hello to all your family and friends and fur babies up there now and have a blast Butchie. RIP our little chocolate chip peanut butter cup. ❤️🐶🌈Jennifer GrzendaPISCATAWAY, New JerseyJuly 27, 2020
