Isabelle (Izzie)
3/1/2009 - 10/19/2020Isabella, also known by all who loved her as Izzie, came into our lives in May of 2009 via a Humane Society foster. She was snuggled up in a little plastic swimming pool with her 9 brothers and sisters. Our Daughter Meg went right to her and said "this is the one".

She started off as a dog on our country property in Perry, Kansas. She loved digging up moles, chasing deer and especially loved rolling in dead fish...a lot. She was not a fan of baths...but always reluctantly stepped into the tub. We moved to Florida when she was 3, where she experienced the city life on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Her days were spent lounging by the pool or relaxing in the shade down by the dock. Life was good.

Izzie had TONS of friends and neighbors who loved her. There was always an abundant supply of doggie treats, head pats, belly rubs and kisses. Mom and dad always saved a spot for her on the couch when it was time to watch TV...and the king size bed accommodated all of her 78lbs and horizontal position in the bed between mom and dad. She especially loved her "spa" days with Uncle John of Ultra Pet Mobile Grooming.

Over 3 THOUSAND pictures were taken of her...maybe more...but none of them captured her personality and just how much she was loved. She was a beautiful soul. We can't wait to see her again. We know she will be waiting by the pearly gates when we get there.

3/17/2008 - 10/19/2020My sweet Chub -- I met you in March of this year at the Anne Arundel County SPCA where I've been volunteering for several years. I initially intended to adopt your sister, Princess, whom I had spotted on the SPCA website. But during the Princess introductions, you came out as well. I brought friends along and made two visits, wanting to avoid an emotional, spontaneous decision. And guess what happened? I made the emotional, spontaneous decision to adopt you both!
Now, I had never had two dogs in my home before. So, initially, this was all a bit overwhelming. And, to make matters even more interesting, just after your adoption, the COVID shutdown began. So here we were--getting to know one another in dramatic and frightening circumstances.

I spent the first four months of your stay here sleeping downstairs on the couch with you and your sister. That first month, the house was a wreck, as was I, probably. But you were always your calm, sweet self. Now you did enjoy barking at the world every time you went outside. But I think you were often barking just to announce your presence. No malice at all.

You would also follow me upstairs to keep track of my activity, poking your nose into the shower curtain, etc. You even photobombed a Zoom session of boot camp which I know you found extremely perplexing. When it was time to return downstairs, I would pick you up AFTER a round of delighted twirling on your part which sometimes left me dizzy! LOL. After a bit, you learned how to walk down those stairs yourself, probably out of sheer boredom.

Then July arrived and the first kidney disease diagnosis. You were with the GAVH vets for 3 days and on antibiotics for another 30 days and I thought we had rounded a corner. I thought you would be with us for longer. But it was not to be. When your health went downhill again, I kept a very close eye on you and couldn't accept it when you were clearly uncomfortable. It was time. My poor sweet Chub.

Your sister and I miss you. It's very quiet here.

8/1/2006 - 10/18/2020Charlie was the most coolest, loving dog we have ever had. He had the greatest personality. We were lucky enough to have him for 13 years. We miss him terribly, but I know that he is now free of pain and in a better place. RIP little buddy. We love you and miss you so much.❤️❤️❤️❤️Rosemarie GosanoLakewood, CaliforniaOctober 20, 2020
2/25/2002 - 9/25/2020Kodie lived to 18 1/2 years old with us. She was such an important member of our family! She had such a kind, gentle and loving soul to her. She was very smart and could read your body language and mood so she could give you just what you needed! She helped us to celebrate the good times and was there for us 100% during the difficult times. She was an avid walker and in her younger years loved going on long walks with us! She thought of herself as one of us and she truly was a very special and amazing member of our family. Anyone who walked through our front door would be blessed with love and attention from Kodie! Though she loved humans much better than other animals, as she aged she became much more tolerable toward other animals she would encounter on our walks! We miss her so much but we know she is in a better place and with love ones who have passed, until we meet again!Kerry LocklearRobbinsville, New JerseyOctober 20, 2020

At 3:53 this afternoon our precious Chloe crossed over the Rainbow Bridge 💔💔💔. She has been fighting lymphoma since early on in the pandemic. She was diagnosed in April and only given a few weeks to live. But Chloe being Chloe she was stubborn and proved the doctor wrong. I suspect she just wanted One more Summer (her favorite season). As Summer turned to Fall her breathing became more labored and at times stridorous, and she has almost completely lost the use of her hind legs. I made her the promise when she was diagnosed that I would not let her suffer. Although I dont think she is in pain, I am certain she is mentally frustrated and confused with the changes she is experiencing. And so with her quality of life significantly and rapidly failing we made the decision to end her suffering and euthanize her here at home. Late this afternoon, surrounded by Lisa, Ryan, and I we helped comfort her as she drifted off into a forever sleep. Dr. George and the staff of Lap of Love were so very comforting and helpful in guiding us through Chloe's last couple hours. I am absolutely certain that she is chasing squirrels and rabbits with Alex and Haley (her brother and sister), and barking at every bird larger than a sparrow she sees. Our hearts and house will have an emptiness as Fall turns to Winter and Winter turns to Spring. Life will go on and we are better people for having had the privilege to be her humans. Traditionally when a friend loses a dog I share the video of Jimmy Stewart's story about "A Dog named Beau" so below is the link to a YouTube video of Mr. Stewart's appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Good bye sweet girl, go run and play ...... Free dog Chloe.

4/29/2006 - 10/19/2020Max was our sweet boy, giver of kisses and barker extraordinaire, protector, brother to Samantha, Spencer, Simon, Sadie and Emma. We miss you, and you will always have a piece of our hearts. Run free and say hi to Simon for us!Judy BellackSt Pete, FloridaOctober 20, 2020
4/22/2003 - 10/19/2020We are completely broken hearted that we said goodbye to our sweet Sunny today. After a four-month battle with oral cancer, he died peacefully at home with us by his side. For 17 years, Sunny was our baby boy. My husband Daniel and I never had kids and perhaps never will, but several months after we married, Sunny became ours. The sweet, gentle red tabby with a penchant for leg rubs and cooked chicken will forever live on in our hearts.Jennifer AshtonImperial, MissouriOctober 20, 2020
