Spike
8/14/1998 - 3/24/2015Spike had large, penetrating green eyes. It's what people noticed about him at first glance. He was the most comforting little being I have ever known. We had 16 1/2 years together, and I already miss him a million times a day. Spike and his littermate/sister Minx were abandoned by their mom when they were 2 weeks old. My neighbor and I bottle fed them and kept them warm and safe. We thought we were fostering them, but then, of course, couldn't give them up. Spike stayed with me, and Minx went to live next door. They both remained unusually bonded to their human moms. (Minx died about 2 years ago.) Spike never saw a lap he didn’t want to sleep on. And if you were "lucky", he would leap on your lap then lick you on the lips. He believed it was his duty to groom Minx's human mom, cleaning her hair with steady determination. His fur was more bunny than kitty and he loved being brushed, especially around his face. Even during his last days, he would walk straight to me when I held out the brush. He slept in his favorite spots around the house, but they changed according to his whim: sometimes in the closet in the bedroom, on the living room chair, in the bathroom sink, or on the kitchen chair hidden under the table... He loved to take a walk around the courtyard, lie in the grass or hang out on a table. He cuddled in my arms like a child and insisted that he be examined at the vet while standing on his hind legs, his front paws in my hands, meerkat-like. For most of his life, he slept on the pillow by my head, sometimes cramming himself into the crook of my neck where he had slept as a tiny kitten. He made me laugh and brought countless unexpected joys into my life. There will never be another little bunny-boy like Spike.

My dear friend and companion, I hope you and Minx have found each other over the Rainbow Bridge. You are in my heart today and always…

Jake
3/28/2015We miss you so much our sweet boy. We miss hearing the shaking of your head when you get up early in the morning. We miss seeing your beautiful face looking up at us with so much love. So many wonderful memories of you we will hold in our hearts. I just bet you are over there playing with some kids and probably trying to get someone to play ball with you. You were one of our greatest joys and we will love you forever.diann freylake forest, CaliforniaMarch 29, 2015
Shelby
6/19/2000 - 3/28/2015After much thought, prayer and gallons of tears, I made the decision it was time to send Shelby on her final journey. She had been very unhappy for the past week. She was avoiding human contact and spent most of her time alone. She wasn’t enjoying her food and she no longer got excited about being outside, chasing her balls or going for walks.

We woke up this morning, went for a walk – she got to choose the route – had French toast and bacon for breakfast – which she devoured! We sat by the window and between barking at passersby, she let me hold her. Then Dr. Schultz from Lap of Love, came to the house and helped Shelby to peacefully cross over the “Rainbow Bridge”. It was quiet and lovely and Shelby went gently to greet, I trust, all her friends: Autumn, Junior, Chester, Mandy, Sophie . . . the list goes on. At almost 15 years old, Shelby had outlived all her doggie friends.

Yes, it’s been an incredibly painful few days anticipating this; but as I always say, the pain is worth all the joy and laughter she brought into our lives.

I will miss her companionship when I garden, shovel snow and take out the trash. She was the best rebounder ever in our driveway basketball games. She was generous in sharing her “candy” with humans. She could outlast everyone in retrieving thrown tennis balls. She didn’t care for baths, but she always made a mad dash into Auntie Carol’s pool and her own kiddie pool in the back yard. She preferred having her cheek “chewed” and her ears massaged to plain petting. Her future is full of running and playing as she chases after her buddies. Or, in her case, as they chase after her. She likes to be the “chasee”. No more achy legs. No more wheezing. No more trying to hide. No more waiting for someone to turn on the water in the bathtub so she could have a “fresh” drink. No more being awakened at 5:00 AM for walks before I went to the gym. No more running from bagged frozen vegetables, which for whatever reason, scared her. Just wonderful times in her newly perfected body.

Only God loves Shelby more than me; and I know He’ll take great care of her until we meet again. My beloved Pookie Bear – best dog EVER!!! Godspeed.

Zsazsa
4/7/2015 - 3/22/2015In Our Heart, Zsazsa.
We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
We think of you in silence. We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories, and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part.
Always, and forever.
We have you in our heart.

"Goodnight sweet princess, now cracks this noble heart, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."

Bud-e
11/26/1999 - 3/21/2015Bud-e was the most comforting little pekenese. He was my middle boy and was in his way aloof but peaceful and calm. When he barked I knew he was serious about something. He was my little last boy too. I am lost without his comforting little kisses and his unshakeable character. He loved everyone and his other two brothers, Louie (Brussels Griffon) and Tee-Jay, (Poodle peke mix) his mentor. The three amigo's were always together, and anyone who knew them knew they were always with me. My home is so silent now. Dr. Brad also met Louie and helped Louie pass this past August. Louie was 12 yr old. Bud-e was 15 this past November and I do believe he missed Louie so much,that his health began to decline. Bud-e became the alpha after Tee-Jay passed the previous May at 18 yrs old. Bud-e became even stronger for Louie, who had cushings disease and really stayed close to Louie, they slept in the same bed and Bud-e always looked after Louie. I am so grateful to Bud-e for his strength and his gift of loving me so much he stayed with me to the end and was my only boy. I am lost without him.Judy SutoMedia, PennsylvaniaMarch 27, 2015

Raven A.k.a Princess Raven
4/15/2015 - 3/24/2015I remember the day that I found Raven, she was in the cage on display to be sold; rough housing with two boy puppies. I'll admit that when I found Raven I knew virtually nothing about dogs and if I had known that rescuing a dog would be better I would have never found my Princess. Raven was my bestfriend, she never wanted to leave side. If I went into the kicthen for a drink of water she would follow me there too! She was going to be 11 years old in April and she was so pretty. She has the cutest little danty face and oh yes she was a Diva! She wanted to rule the house and everyone in it incluidng my daughter.....lol

Raven along with my boy dog Max completed my little family and it truly does feel like a void since she has been gone. We really miss her on walks! I hope that there is a place that she has gone too where she can be her old self again without the Diabetes and the loss of her eye sight.

We love and miss you Raven always!

Bono
10/20/2003 - 3/23/2015To our dear Bono......our best friend.......a true blessing.....
You stole our hearts almost 12 years ago when we brought you home at 8 weeks old. God made you especially for our family. You have brought so much joy and laughter to our home over the years. You have taught us what unconditional love really is. The days are long and the house is empty without you here. We miss you terribly. But we know that you are in a better place running after that tennis ball once again, waiting to greet us in heaven. You took a piece of our heart with you when you left. You will be forever in our hearts and you will never be replaced. A day will not go on without the thought of your handsome face. We love you more than words could ever say.


Xoxo
