Baloo
3/15/1997 - 12/14/2016Goodnight my sweet and handsome Baloo Bear. You gifted us with so much love for almost twenty years. You were a fierce defender against all interlopers, but the most gentle and loving cuddle bear to your humans. We will miss your beautiful golden eyes, luxurious fur, thousand and one impossible poses and that oh so thunderous purr. Give your brother, Bagheera, a kiss for us and tell him we still miss him, too. You're free to be kittens together again and you'll always be our special angels.Susan WatsonEast Greenbush, New YorkDecember 31, 2016
Crosby
12/17/2004 - 11/23/2016Crosby- You meant so much to us. We miss you so much, dear friend. You were an angel of a dog here on Earth and now you are our angel in heaven. We have never known a soul so good, so happy, so loving, so loyal and trusting of everyone. You never knew a stranger. Everyone was your best friend, and they all instantly fell in love with you. How could we not? You had the spirit of a puppy into your final days.

I will always remember our parting moments and the big wet kiss I got from you just before you left this world. You were such a comfort when your sister Chloe departed for the Rainbow Bridge just three months before you. Forever in our hearts you will be.

Chester
3/11/2003 - 12/16/2016As Kermit/Bob Cratchit so wisely says in The Muppets Christmas Carol, "life is made up of meetings and partings; that is the way of it." We said goodbye to a family member on December 16th and it was a hard parting though a peaceful passing. I miss Chester greatly. I will always remember the boom of his bark, his devotion to me, his pawing at me for potato chips, his big brown eyes staring at me until I yielded my cereal milk, his snoring and his impeccable timing with a sigh at just the right spot in a TV show. We -- my daughter and son and Chester's Daddy and I - lost a good friend. As his Daddy put it: "A friend loves unconditionally, knows what you are feeling and responds with care and concern, is never too busy to listen and be with you and never demands conditions to be your friend. " Our Mooser boy was such a friend for 13 1/2 years, a long life though it's never long enough with those we love. We take some comfort in believing he is with his buddy, Shadow, a black pug who left us three years ago. They were the best of friends and in our hearts they are roaming the fields together.sharing wonderful adventures.Melissa WarnerGlen Allen, VirginiaDecember 31, 2016
Kota
12/22/2016 - 12/28/2016I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to Dr. Laura for all of her help and her caring and kindness when it came to Kota and for helping me thru this difficult time. And I would also like to say THANK YOU to all the staff members that work for this company. I am so sorry that I did not take notes when talking with all of you. I would love to give you each a special THANK YOU, but unfortunately I did not make notes when I would talk with each of you. So caring and wonderful. Once again THANK YOU...Kenneth KlineMilford, MichiganDecember 30, 2016
Buddy
4/21/2006 - 12/26/2016Buddy (aka Aussie), we will always love you and hold the most special place in our hearts for you. You taught us so much about life. How to love unconditionally and deeply, how to care for another creature, how to live fearlessly and in the present moment, how to enjoy life to the fullest. You were our protector and defender and we were yours. You have been our constant companion every day for over 10 years. We went everywhere together. We were each others shadows. We were best friends.
When Buddy was diagnosed in April 2016 with stage v lymphoma and given the worse prognosis, we were devastated. The vet said he would only live a few more days. However, Buddy proved them wrong and showed just how much of a trooper he really was. It just wasn't his time yet. We explored every holistic and integrative approach to healing the body that we could find. He was able to live another 8 healthy and energetic months without chemotherapy, but by eating a very healthy diet, taking lots of herbs, vitamins, supplements, mushrooms, and prednisone, receiving acupuncture treatments, and by being completely loved, adored, and cared for. He was a very strong willed, determined, and stubborn dog. We are so grateful that he was happy, healthy and a total wild man up until the last few days of his life. He passed away peacefully on December 26, 2016. It was his time and he let us know that he was ready for another journey.
Buddy absolutely loved life! He loved adventures! He loved car rides, to stick his head out of the car window (even in the rain and snow), to go on walks, to hike in the mountains, to go swimming, to bark at anything motorized or that moved on wheels, to EAT, to play with toys, to visit with his favorite people, to be petted and loved on, to play in the leaves and snow, to get dirty, to roll around and scratch his back on the ground while kicking his legs up, to chase any critter that moved (especially deer), to run around like a mad man! Buddy was an absolute character! He made an impression on anyone that met him. He loved getting treats at the bank teller drive through window and the coffee park air-stream. He would bark to let you know that he was there and ready for his treat! Buddy was an old, sweet soul.
We will meet again old friend and we know that you are always with us in spirit and in our hearts. We miss you. We love you. We are so grateful to have shared part of this journey in life with you.
"While there are many different roads that we take in life, it is those that walk beside us that make the journey worthwhile. My friend, although your bed is empty, and our long walks are no more, I thank the Lord for our journey that left your paw prints on my heart."
We love you Buddy,
Courtney and Brian

Gracie
7/4/2004 - 12/16/2016We adopted Gracie from a rescue agency when she was 7 1/2 years old. She quickly became a part of our family — sweet, loving and eager to please. A year after we adopted her, my boyfriend and I broke up. I moved back to my hometown and Gracie came along as my partner in crime. She comforted me and lifted my spirits. Within a year, Gracie became very sick. It turns out, she had a malformation in her brain as well as a compressed disc in her spine. My ex-boyfriend / Gracie's human daddy came to the rescue to help fund her expensive medical bills. Through this experience of saving our Gracie, we reunited, reconciled, got engaged and married. We spent 5 wonderful years with Gracie and she brought us so much joy. My husband and I fully give Gracie credit for our relationship; she quite literally brought us back together. Five years wasn't nearly long enough, but we treasure every single day we got to spend with our "mushy."Mary Beth ThomsenRichmond, VirginiaDecember 29, 2016
Penny
5/25/2002 - 12/15/2016My heartfelt memorial to "Mama's Girl"💞
Penny Kay Shaffer... Penny's birthdate was May 25, 2002 - from that day forward my life was blessed and my heart was complete. The most difficult and emotional time was having to say goodbye to my precious baby girl. With heartfelt gratitude I want to thank Dr. Graham for showing us love and compassion at the end of Penny's life and giving her a peaceful home-going to heaven on December 15, 2016.
Penny has been my heartbeat, life and world. Penny has been my joy, peace, comfort and given me unconditional love as I gave her. Penny fought a long battle with kidney failure and was my little angel trying to be brave and stay a little longer with her Mommy. She was in the hospital twice for a long term stay each time. I went to visit her every morning and every evening for several hours at a time. I would bring her favorite stuffed elephant also known as her boyfriend, her special blankets, beds, fresh water in her favorite bowl. I looked forward to each visit because it became a special time for both of us. I always told Penny " it's you and mama's" and "mama loves you very much" as I held her close to my heart. We took hundreds of selfies which I now cherish every one of them. I was able to bring Penny home to celebrate an early Christmas with her. I decorated the tree just for her with meaningful memories that we had throughout her life. Christmas Day was not the same without her little paws running around wanting to share that special time with us. Since Penny was an indoor dog, trained on her pads she didn't go out much only on warm days. She didn't like cold weather! Penny loved to take her ball, put in the middle of her bed, flip the bed with her nose and dig in the bed to hear the ball squeak then pretend she couldn't find the ball. She would do this over and over until she was exhausted. It was so fun to watch her play. Penny loved when little children would come by her. She was gentle and loving to everyone.
We shared every day and moment together. Penny loved to snuggle and really loved being held in my arms. We would spend many hours looking into each other's eyes, while I pet her, feeling complete peace, comfort, enjoying our bond and the love we had for each other. It's been hard to start a day without her.
My heart is broken and will always be with you in heaven.
Penny you will always be Mama's Girl... I miss you deeply
I love you my sweet Penny, with all of my heart and all of my love to you...💜
Your forever Mama
Always by my side🐾
Forever in my heart💞

Karma
6/20/2003 - 12/27/2016Over 13.5 years I've lived in 4 different dwellings, but it was you that always made it home. You were my constant happiness in a world that rarely allows for it. To say man's best friend is an understatement. Letting you go was the single hardest thing I've ever done and I pray to never have to do something like that again. You had the softest fur and sweetest demeanor. You never chewed on anything that wasn't food. You accepted the woman I chose to marry without jealousy. You watched as we brought home two beautiful daughters whom you watched over, protected and to which later became a jungle gym. You loved to swim at the cottage and hated being dirty, which for a lab is highly unusual. You thought you were human most of the time and ate whatever, and whenever you could. I wish I had more time with you, I wish I could have had one more walk, one more time to play, one more time with you hogging the bed, one more time sharing my meal with you. I know they say time heals all wounds, but this one is deep and it will be until we meet again. I love you lady! There will never be another you! Good Bye old friend.Nick BiancoLancaster, New YorkDecember 29, 2016
