6/16/1997 - 11/13/2016I have searched the past year to find the words to memorialize you. I am still speechless. There are no words that can properly pay tribute to you.
You were my everything. My constant companion. My love. My friend.
This past year has been the hardest year of my life. There is not a day that I don't think of you and miss you. You were my favorite hello and my hardest good-bye.
Until we are together again, I hope that you are playing with your birdies, mice, etc.

10/8/2002 - 10/26/2017Brandy was the best dog I have ever had. When I was bring her home I was telling her about my mom being bed ridden and could not move very good and that she had to be very gentle with her. When we got home she went right into my moms room and put her nose under my moms arm and flipped her arm onto her head so my mom could pet her. Brandy never did anything to my mother. What is funny Brandy was not a year old yet.Kathleen HutchasonColumbus, OhioNovember 12, 2017
7/15/2004 - 11/10/2017My wife and I were not able to have children so Maggie was definitely like a child to us. We can not express the pain and absolute loss we are feeling right now. Our lives revolved around her. She gave us 11 years of joy and unconditional love thru some very difficult times. Thank you Dr. Jessica for your compassion and giving Maggie a dignified and peaceful passing at home. We are forever grateful .Dave McKelveyIrving, TexasNovember 12, 2017

7/16/2003 - 11/11/2017As I drift off peacefully,
As we say our last goodbyes.
No doubts or regrets, just you by my side.
I leave you with my heart,
As I cross over to be free.
Wear it next to yours...
Because that’s were I’ll always be.

Stella Lynne Close
11/27/2008 - 11/9/2017“Our sweet wonderful Mastiff girl Stella was euthanized in her bed, lying next to our recliners in our study. She passed away at 12:33 pm, Thursday 11-9-17. Assisting in her passage was Dr Leslie Peltier of “Lap of Love” . Stella's kidneys were failing her with albumin loss from her blood leading to fluid retention in Her entire body. In addition she was losing nerve control in her rear legs . Kidney failure led to an additional weight of 20 or so pounds of fluid. This made walking very difficult. Her declining health came fast - starting on Friday November 3, 2017 when we had to rush her to Medvets at around 4:00 PM.

Despite a life complicated by diabetes, and these final problems, Stella was still Stella. Her loving kind and gentle personality showing through to the end. When the Vet arrived and rang the door bell Stella got up off her bed, struggling with failing back legs, to greet Dr. Leslie at the door - no small feat for a dog who required a rear leg sling to walk outside to the bathroom these last two days! Stella loved to give face kisses, as many of you have experienced, some to your consternation! With Kris and I kneeling at her side, trying to comfort her with loving words, suffering Stella offered face kisses all around - to Dr Leslie - to Kris, and to me. As the sedative slowly overcame her and with us kneeling around her, hoping she would hear our last words - that we loved her - that she was the best dog we had ever shared a home with, she was still handing out those darn kisses until her head slowly settled onto on her paws and she was near the end.

We have had lots of dogs in our lives, all we loved dearly. They grew up with our family and often family responsibilities resulted in them not getting the attention they really wanted, they still loved us. If you are really lucky, you may encounter that rare animal who speaks to the soul in mysterious ways that are difficult to describe. You can try to communicate that which is almost transcendent with words like ebullience, empathy, dedication, loving sweetness, understanding, sensitive and intelligent but grammar is ultimately inadequate without the experience. Stella was that once in a lifetime wonderful creature.

Over the last 17 years we have volunteered with Great Lakes Mastiff Rescue, and rescued 10-12 Mastiffs. All were kind and loving but none of them were one third the magnificent creature Stella was. How we deserved such a noble and loving animal only God knows, but He blessed us with Stella and the wonderful 9 year journey we shared!

10/7/2002 - 10/25/2017Brandy was the best dog I ever owned. When I was bringing her home I was telling her that mom had health problems so she had to be gentle with her. When we got home she went right to my mothers room and put her nose under my moms arm and flipped her arm on her back so that my mom could pet her. Brandy was always gentle with my mom but when it came to the rest of us that was a different story.Kathleen HutchasonColumbus, OhioNovember 12, 2017
