Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Kona
7/7/2014 - 8/19/2014Last night we said goodbye to Kona. He was 15 years old and lived more adventures than many people I know. He climbed mountains, paddled lakes and rivers, ran on farms, and loved us fiercely.

Brent and Kona shared the same birthday. Brent rescued Kona when he was just around 1 year old and within a week they were inseparable. He has seen us through ups, downs, and so many new steps in our lives. Although he was first and always Brent's dog, he loved and is loved by so many of our family and friends.

As he aged, he battled breathing issues and mobility issues. Ultimately, his body gave up but we knew his spirit never would. It was with deep grief but extreme gratitude, that we gave him the gift of release from a body that no longer served him.

Rest easy, good buddy, you can run freely now. We love you and will miss you terribly.

Jet Li
6/21/2001 - 8/11/2014It's always too short a time to spend with such a kind and gentle friend. But she promised to send more friends for me. I miss her so much but I know she is free to jump higher and run faster than ever. Money and fame could never achieve this kind of love.Ann BorisPhiladelphia, PennsylvaniaAugust 20, 2014
Lolly
8/20/2000 - 8/8/2014Lolly was a wonderful and loving Australian Shepherd. He would have been 14 today. We miss him terribly. Lolly had the most beautiful eyes. When you spoke to him he would tilt his head to one side and look at you with those beautiful eyes.Barbara FortePalm Coast, FloridaAugust 20, 2014

Caesar
1/22/2005 - 8/18/2014Caesar came into our lives very early into our relationship. He was the sweetest little 9 week old puppy when we adopted him. Once my wife (then girlfriend) picked him up, he just wouldn't let go. He continued this strong attachment to us and us to him for his entire life. He had been there for us through so many changes and challenges in our lives. We got him when we were early in college and had just started dating, he saw us get engaged, he saw us move 5 times during college, saw us graduate, our first jobs, our marriage, our move to Chicago and adoption of his little brother Piebald (A Miniature Dachshund). The best event he was able to witness was the birth of our first daughter which speaks to how we cared so much for us and how protective he was of his owners that he made sure he was here for that.

He was incredibly loved throughout his entire life. When he found his way into the bathtub as a puppy and hit his head on the faucet, giving himself a black eye, his mother and I were there with cuddles the entire night letting him know it was OK. He loved to romp in the snow and throw it in the air with his legs and try to catch it with his mouth. He would often play so long and hard in the snow that he would forget about how cold it was and would get "precious paws", requiring his daddy to pick him up (no easy feat at 73 lbs) and carry him inside. One Christmas you even tried to dress up as Santa with daddy’s Santa mask and put a smile on everyone’s face.

He traveled everywhere with us with the exception of one vacation in which his parents missed him so much that they vowed never to leave him behind again, and stuck to their word. Every trip back to Ohio was a fun trip with Caesar because he loved car rides. He would get so excited and it would take him at least the first hour of the trip to finally settle down and sleep, but once you came to a stop he bolted upright because he thought he had arrived.

Caesar was a good boy all the way until the end. In his last weeks he never showed a lack of courage. His mom and dad did everything they could to keep him comfortable and try to make him better. They even cooked him gourmet meals to try and help him get better. In the end, his illness proved too much so his parents had to make a very hard decision. Because he has been such a loving and caring dog, there was no way his parents could put him through the pain of surgeries not knowing it they would work and decided to show him the ultimate act of love and let him go. It was by far the hardest decision they have ever made.

On his last day, the family enjoyed one more walk as walks were his favorite and they even ate ice cream, another favorite. As the time grew nearer, he couldn't do anything but look at his owners as if to say "It's OK, I'll see you again". He was so brave that even though his parents were hurting, he continued to show us unquestionable love and laid his head on our laps to comfort us.

We know you're gone physically but you'll never be gone from our hearts. While we can't enjoy doggy kisses or tail wags anymore, we can enjoy knowing that you loved us with everything you had, and we did the same for you. It will painful waking up and not seeing you crawl out from under the bed, but in time we will look at these things with fondness and not sadness. We’ll make sure we take great care of your little brother Piebald as he misses you just as much as mom and dad. You’ll always be remembered and no dog will ever compare to you. Make sure you look in on us once in a while and keep an eye on us. We hope to be reunited with you again one day, but for now, enjoy those green grassy fields, the toys and all the cheese you can eat while you wait for us; our furry angel.

Goldie
4/24/2014 - 8/5/2014Goldie, you were always there for each of your family members. So loved in very different ways. Anyone who met you was amazed at how sweet, gentle and calm you were, especially growing up in a home with 4 children all close in age. You were the calm in the chaos for me. The soft spot with the wagging tail trailing behind the kids, doing everything they did. We saw you all grow up and tried not to notice that you had grown old and tired. You maintained your youthful manner right up to the end, and I thank you for all the love you gave us. Our hearts are broken now that you are gone, the house so silent. Each of us thinking you are still here at the door until we open it. Our Goldie bear, baby dog, you are missed, everyday, at every meal, even at play...Regina OcasioWest Miramar, FloridaAugust 19, 2014
Lucy
6/18/1997 - 6/30/2014Lucy was a strong, yet patient family pet who every one who came in contact with, loved her and cherished her. She lived her 17 years in dignity, showing care and love to her Mom, Dad, and Sister (Emily-Anna). We shall meet again, girl...Elaine & Jeff KannerTega Cay, South CarolinaAugust 19, 2014
