Pandora
4/11/1999 - 7/2/2015On the anniversary of Pandora's passing, I wanted to post a memorial in her honor. I still miss her every single day, and am eternally grateful for her long and mostly healthy life.

I remember...
Her deep, thoughtful eyes, which twinkled when she smiled.
The feel of her soft, wavy red fur, which was turning white.
Her tail that wagged like a soft breeze, or thumped like a wild drummer.
Her perfect black nose becoming pale and freckled.
The way she lapped water rhythmically in sets of three: lap, lap, lap, pause; lap, lap, lap, pause.
The way she gently rested her chin on the windowsill, surveying the world.
Seeing her watching for me at the front window when I came home.
Her standing in the yard when she was very old, barking at nothing in particular, her front feet hopping off the ground with each bark.
Her deep voice becoming hoarse with age.
Her trotting along beside me as a puppy, proudly displaying a huge, unwieldy branch she had picked up (which I still have in my trunk).
Dancing with her to folk music during A Prairie Home Companion.
The way she got along with the other dogs she met--all but one, who unceremoniously attempted to mount her. Him, she told off.
How she threw herself on her back, shamelessly displaying her belly for ten whole minutes trying to cajole a guest to give her a tummy rub.
Her eating with gusto every food, raw or cooked, that she was offered...except for kiwi.
Her nearly falling asleep when I clipped her nails.
Her grabbing my slippers, but not chewing them, and giving them up when asked.
Her grabbing a hunk of wood and running in a wide circle around me, playing keep away.
How she went along nicely to swimming, which kept her mobile in her last years, despite not loving it.
Her relentlessly trying to entice Buddy (the terrified foster dog) to play; she convinced him in just four days.
The way she automatically sat when she met toddlers on walks.
Her howling to the opening of Mahler's fifth symphony, while lying flat as a pancake on the floor.
Her graciousness even when she could no longer walk without help.
How much she had to teach me, and how patiently she did.
What a model citizen she was when I was too ill to make any demands.
Her just wanting to be near me.
Playing hide and seek with her.
The bittersweet feeling of celebrating her 16th birthday, knowing it would be her last.
How she let her younger "sister" Sara cuddle up with her as if she were a canine bean bag.
The soft sound she made when she wanted me to flip her over when she tired of lying on one side, after she could no longer do it herself.
Cradling her head in my lap, whispering in her ear, and looking into her beautiful eyes for the last time as she drifted gently and peacefully away.
Two butterflies flitting around Dr. Christie's car just before she took her away.

Sassy
6/15/1998 - 7/9/2016Sassy, the most loving, caring soul that has ever touched my life and she changed me forever. She showed me what love without words truly means. Her strength and love for me until her last day is something I will never forget. I love you Sassy today, tomorrow and forever.Luciana RigoKissimmee, FloridaJuly 12, 2016
Cuddles
7/10/2016Cuddles came to us through the caring arms of our son, alone, cold and mistreated, found on a construction site in winter, she was brought home to be loved and cared for. Admittedly, at that time another cat in the house was not the best idea to me having two already, but I was not going to ignore this pitiful looking tired sick kitty. She had a cold, needed to eat and be seen by a vet at the very least, "that was the plan" it did not take long for "the plan" to fail! She crawled on my chest the first night she was with me, put her little kitty arms around my neck and went to sleep, who on earth could say no to that. Cuddles, was affectionately named and became part of the family, she spent the rest of her life loving us with all her heart, every night she would come to bed and snuggle up to my neck and chest, nestled in and embraced with loving arms in return. I could not ask for a better friend and companion, the truly unconditional ;love she gave was a gift that will last our lifetime and carry on ever after. To go through this life and not know the love of a pet is the greatest loss I can imagine, as much as it hurts to say goodbye to my best friend, I would not trade it for anything else in this world! Thank you Dr Emily for the warmth and caring you give to all the animals and humans you touch.Ron PevelerBatavia, OhioJuly 11, 2016
Lexus (lexie)
10/8/2002 - 7/9/2016Lexie joined our family at 8 weeks of age. She was an adorable puppy and grew into a beautiful large dog. She was the closest I've had to a child, as I had her in my life all of her life. My fiancee' Gayle and I were together all of her life, Lexie was our canine fur baby. She would sit next to me wherever I was, follow me whenever I moved, even if it was to get coffee or whatever. She was great outfielder in the yard being able to catch tennis balls no matter how high they were lobbed....mind you bringing them back wasb't something she would do, but she played catch all day long! She was my shadow. Our neighbors Don and Pam became a part of Lexie's family over time, and she loved them both, would always look to their house to see if either or both were outside, and if so, would walk over to the fence to love on them through the fence. She did this as best she could in her later years when she couldn't walk as well so I would help her with the Gingerlead that she had come to rely on at the end to walk around. She loved to play in what snow we would get in winter, and loved walks. She also loved rides in the car. As I watched her age, she slowed down but her bark, her wagging tail and love for all of us was always there. She trusted us to take care of her, and in her prime she was there for us to comfort us when we suffered losses. My fiancee' Gayle passed away 7/6/16, and Lexie knew it somehow...she had been not eating without us helping her for a short time, and her walking and breathing was more labored...Dr. Ashleigh of Lap of Love came out to the house on July 9th where we helped Lexie make the trip to the Rainbow bridge and while it hurts still, I know I made the right decision for her.MICHAEL DAVISFederal Way, WashingtonJuly 11, 2016
Lizzy
7/1/2001 - 7/9/2016Lizzy, how we miss you! I miss your sweet face in the morning curled up next to me in bed. I miss your gentle brushes up against my legs and your every day need to nuzzle up on my shoulder and pull my hair through your teeth! Never understood why you did this, but was always grateful for our snuggle time. I'll miss your sweet way you would stand on your back legs and lean up against my legs to pick you up. you're now no longer in pain and I'm so grateful for Dr. Nil who was able to help set you free and become a little Angel! Love you Kittypuss, you're forever in our hearts!Teresa FossDover, FloridaJuly 11, 2016
Foster
3/1/2004 - 7/7/2016Foster was truly devote to his family. My hisband John leaves at 5:30 AM every morning. Foster would go downstairs to see John off in the morning then come upstairs back to bed. This one particular morning Foster would not lay down and kept trying to wake me up. So I get out of bed I and go downstairs and the gas on the stove was on filling the house with gas. I turned it off, opened the windows and made my dogs go outside while the house clears out. He saved my life and the other dgs life.Elizabeth JacksonMurrieta, CaliforniaJuly 11, 2016
Luna & Riley
7/7/2016Our fur babies Luna & Riley crossed over the Rainbow Bridge together on Friday July 8, 2016. In the comfort of our livingroom surrounded by the people who loved them most we bid our goodbyes until we meet again. Luna brought 13 years of love and joy and adventure while Riley added to our mix for the last 10 years. Our lives are much better having had the opportunity to have them in our lives. Not a day will go by where I will not pause and think about you two now running and playing free from sickness and old age.Julie & Dave LancasterWestbury, New YorkJuly 11, 2016
Noodle
5/1/2004 - 6/26/2016Noodle changed my life when I adopted her and became the catalyst for many positive changes in my life. I rescued her, but she truly rescued me as well. She was my best friend. She was my loyal guardian. Noodle was taken from us way too soon due to a brain tumor that progressed very quickly. Noodle, you are so loved and so missed. Not a day has gone by that I don't think of you. There is a hole in my heart shaped like my beautiful poodle. Mommy, Daddy, and your poodle brother Otto miss you and love you always.Lauren PhenixLas Vegas, NevadaJuly 10, 2016
