Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
12/31/2005 - 12/2/2019Gracie Lynn Spears crossed the rainbow bridge surrounded by love on December 2nd, 2019. She truly was the sweetest girl. She had a special connection with my late fiance, and I would find myself getting jealous because she 'liked him more'. I later realized that she knew he was sick, and was trying to help him. She spent every minute of every day during Matt's final months by his side, and I am so grateful that he had her when I couldn't be there. She spent every moment by my side while I was grieving his passing.

Gracie had this way of making the issues of the world float away; dulled out by the sound of her purrs. I feel fortunate to be able to return the favor, and be there for her in her final moments and when she needed me most. I am eternally grateful that I was able to give her a wonderful, loving home for the short 2.5 years that I had her.

I will miss her more than she will know, but I am comforted in the though of knowing that she is at peace with Matt. Rest in paradise, my sweet angel Gracie.

Sammie Foxdog
7/29/2002 - 11/28/2019Our sweet Sammie passed away peacefully on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, 2019 surrounded by family and all of his toys. He was 17 years old and had been a part of the Nambo family for over 16 years. He brought so much joy to everyone who knew and saw him. He had the sweetest face and the longest legs — he reminded our family of a fox, deer, lamb, and bear all morphed into one. He was the friendliest pup and always walked with a prance, constantly stopping people on the street to ask if they could pet him.  He has been to 14 different states, taken a dip in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, flown on 2 airplanes, became a macaron icon, modeled for Warby P(B)arker, and was featured in a National Geographic kid's book about rescued pets. He loved to go on expeditions, meet new friends, and investigate all of the smells — anytime a new bag was brought into the house, his nose was in it. He loved to eat tasty foods, snuggle, give kisses and get back massages. He loved road trips and hikes (and riding in his special backpack carrier when he got tired). Earlier on, he really loved to run — especially in the snow and when it was cold out. But most of all he loved to spin and he kept on spinning up until he couldn't anymore... Rest in peace sweet Sammie. You are loved and missed so very much.Allie NamboAustin, TexasDecember 3, 2019
7/1/2008 - 11/8/2019Ziabelle Pantalones, you were my heart dog. It hasn't even been a month since you had to leave but it seems like a lifetime. I miss you so very much. I keep thinking I hear you in the other room. But that's silly, because if you were here, you'd be right by my side - a true velcro dog. We were truly a team going through life. I thank you so very much for helping me get through some very rough times. I don't think I could have done it without you. You had your own little snorty language that I loved so much. I still find myself talking to you out loud before I realize you're not here. But I do still feel you with me in another way. I went walking at our favorite place at the park - and I know you would have loved it. And I think you'd be glad I was out there. I wish everyone could have had a chance to meet you. You were the brightest, sweetest, and sassiest dog that I'll ever know. I love you.Jennifer MaysTakoma Park, MarylandDecember 3, 2019
4/15/2005 - 11/29/2019My beautiful girl, Maddie. You have been my best friend since day one and I have cherished every single day with you. You were always there to comfort me when I was sent to the time-out chair as a child, you supported me through all of my hardships in high school, you let me cry on your belly when I was upset, and you never failed to bring joy into my life. You were stubborn and independent, much like me, but it never got in the way of our relationship.

I will always remember the summers in Maine with you. Dad and Mom would bring out the suitcases and you would get panic stricken! You were always worried we would leave you in Maryland, so you would pace around the house and lay close to everyone to make sure you wouldn't be forgotten. Then you would happily jump into the trunk of the car for a 12 hour drive up to your favorite place: Mt. Vernon, Maine for the summer. You loved swimming, chasing squirrels, sunbathing on the dock of the lake house, and taking yourself on your own walks down the camp road. I hope you spend endless summers in Maine swimming in the lake.

I am beyond grateful that I was able to spend your last Thanksgiving with you, we all are. You imprinted your paw print into my heart and I will never forget you. I miss you so incredibly much, but I am at peace knowing that you aren't in pain anymore. You are free. We will meet again one day, but until then, thank you for being my absolute best friend. Thank you for showing me unconditional love, loyalty, compassion, forgiveness, and bringing an infinite amount of happiness into my life. I love you, Monkey, rest easy.

4/15/2015 - 12/1/2019Our Buck was as sweet and handsome as they come! He got along with everyone and was always down to snuggle and snack. Our house is quieter and our hearts are less full without him here but we are so grateful for the time we had with our sweet boy.Kaitlynn HartLongwood, FloridaDecember 2, 2019
1/1/2005 - 12/1/2019We rescued Ty and his bonded mate 5 hours before they were supposed to be Euthanized at a California Shelter. He and his bonded mate Lilly were given up to the shelter at the ages of 11 and 12 after the original owners had them their entire lives. He was such a sweet boy and had bad separation anxiety due to his circumstances but everyone that ever met our Ty fell in love right away. All he wanted was pets on the head and walks in the neighborhood. He just wanted to feel loved. Which we did for the 3 years we had him. He made the cross country journey back to NC after we decided to move back to be closer to family. We saw his health declining shortly after the move so we took him into the vet to find out he had a tumor on his adrenal gland so our goal from then on out was to make sure he had more good days than bad. And he was spry and enjoyed life until he fell critically ill almost over night. We knew the right thing to do. I’m just glad he is at peace. He was one of our favorites until the end. He will be missed greatly.Raven NesterMidland, North CarolinaDecember 2, 2019
Sophie Grana
10/1/2005 - 11/26/2019Although I never wanted children and wondered what my purpose would be, you gave me purpose. God intended me to be a dog Mommy. As crazy as that may sound to some, I couldn’t have been more cut out for something than being a dog mom. Sophie comforted me in hard times and was there every step of the way. Friend to all dogs and mostly people she was the perfect companion. My heart is forever broken, nothing could ever replace the love I felt for her or her I. Run free my girl, hope there are lots of squirrels to chase up in heaven. Give Grandpa lots of love tell him life is not the same without him in it. Tell Max I miss him so much. I love you more than words sweet baby girl….Dawn GranaLombard, IllinoisDecember 2, 2019
11/1/2004 - 12/1/2019We had our sweet Sierra for a full 15 years. She adored all humans and yearned to be near them at all times. Our house sits on two acres with plenty of wildlife cruising through the front yard for her to watch. Sierra loved to chase the deer, though she was never successful in catching up to one. Swimming in our pool was one of her most favorite hobbies. Pool parties were her most favorite events... running around the pool and swimming with the kiddos. This last summer, she often would sneak into the pool in the mornings. We would have to forgo any morning commitment to sit out with her. We would enjoy a cup of coffee to sit out back with her, knowing that her time was soon near.Julie BuddenSandy Springs, GeorgiaDecember 2, 2019
10/14/2003 - 11/24/2019Buckley, Mr. Buck, or Buckoo as often called by loving family, extended family, friends, and all who were fortunate to have played with you for over 16 years. We were blessed to bring you home when you were only 6 weeks old, and even more grateful to have celebrated your BIG-16 last month. You helped us to learn more about ourselves, raising Saheli and Aanya, being a guardian and big brother, and a true companion. We loved sharing our sleeping beds with you, and enjoyed the warmth you brought to each of us over the years. Your pattering feet on the wooden floors, and excitement when food was near, will always ring in our ears and your excitement to see us walk thru the door every day will always warm our hearts. We are so fortunate to have shared such a long life with you. We miss you dearly but we also know that you are now over the rainbow, and enjoying your favorite treats while living your best at the youthful age you so enjoy.Sheetal DavittBLOOMFIELD, New JerseyDecember 2, 2019
9/30/2009 - 11/30/2019Our dear Miley, you were the bestest girl. We miss you so much and can't bear that you are gone, but are comforted to know that you are now in heaven and at peace. These last few weeks were tough. You were my first smile in the morning and my last smile at night. You were the first to greet me at the door or the first to notice when I walked into a room with your tail thumps. You loved your daddy and little brother so much. You were stingy with kisses, but gave them just when they were needed. You were so soft, with ears made of silk. You loved treats, chewing super hard bones, squeaky balls and barking at the fedex delivery truck (or anyone else who dare to stop by your home unannounced). You also loved staying near me all day and napping by my feet as I worked from home. My days are not as bright since you left me. You will never be forgotten.Kristina PicaMidlothian, VirginiaDecember 2, 2019
