Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Fayola Rowley
4/23/2003 - 3/18/2017Fayloa was born on April 23, 2003 in Michigan. She joined our family in Pennsylvania and was loved and adored by us all for 14 years. She survived several other beloved family pets, relationships, long distance moves, cold northern winters, balmy Florida summers and more, all with the most loving temperament once could ever imagine in a human or animal. In the last 2 years of her life she began to decline due to illness. We miss her terribly but are thankful that she is no longer suffering. She is survived by Amai, Missy, Misha and Ayo (our cat).

Faye, you have moved beyond this life, but you live forever in our hearts. We love you. Amai, Missy and Misha.

Sammy
1/15/2007 - 3/12/2017Sammy is now swimming in puppy heaven. Right to the very end he greeted every guest at the door with a bow tie on and a toy in his mouth. He wasn't tolerant of the crying bit in the end and only wanted to talk about puppy heaven. Dr. Shannon from lap of love arrived Monday afternoon and graciously waited to until everyone that was running late had the opportunity to visit with him one last time. She said she had never seen so many people at a home to say goodbye, and was surprised to learn that he had only just recently met them in our building. Sam always insisted upon walking the halls of the building until he made a new friend.

Sammy took his last shower earlier in the day even though his legs could barely hold him any longer. He had his favorite bow tie on and teddy bear alongside him when he climbed into bed with me the last time. His baby is still with him as he has never left home without him. He was also still wearing his teal bow tie when his body boarded the van. Sammy is now swimming in puppy heaven. Right to the very end he greeted every guest that stopped by to say goodbye at the door with a bow tie on and a toy in his mouth. He wasn't tolerant of the crying bit in the end and only wanted to talk about puppy heaven. Dr. Shannon from lap of love arrived at 3:30 Monday afternoon and graciously waited to begin till 5:00 as a few of our neighbors were running late with preparing for the storm. She said she had never seen so many people at a home to say goodbye. She was very surprised to learn that he had only met them in our building in April.

Earlier in the morning while I was showering I had asked who wanted to make the puppy pretty and he climbed right into the shower. Sam's legs were barely able to hold him up , but being the pretty dog was much more important to him. He picked out his favorite teal bow tie to wear one last time, and had his teddy bear as we climbed into our bed together one last time. Sammy waited for each neighbor to give him their message to relay to those they have loss.

Sam had always been told that his mommy got him at the pretty puppy store where they only sold perfect puppy dogs, and he was the prettiest and best dog the store had ever seen. I told him that when he arrives in heaven everyone would say “my that is one good looking dog.” He was also told that his great grandpa and his brother Sarge would be there waiting for him and were eager to show him the best places to swim. We all know that labs are never told they have to get out of the water in puppy heaven and they would never get tired either. He was also ecstatic to hear that they have the biggest puppy store up in heaven, and there's never a budget to be concerned by.

We each gave him one last kiss goodbye, and told him how much we loved him before the doors of the van were closed.

Bella Jo Andrews
7/13/2005 - 3/17/2017Bella was one of the true loves of my life. She had so many qualities I not only appreciated, but grew to depend on over our 11+ years together. She was a regal lady, a protector, a playmate, and completely devoted to her family. She was the smallest, leanest Chinese Shar Pei in history (I believe), but what she lacked in size she had extra of in personality, will, and heart. The loss feels very big and all-encompassing right now, but we know her spirit will be with us every time we share a funny story, memory, look at her pictures, or watch her videos.Kathryn AndrewsHollywood, FloridaMarch 19, 2017
Gumbo
2/8/2004 - 3/7/2017Gumbo, aka Gump, Gumpster, Gumby, The Great Gumbolini, Gumpalufagus, Gumbotron, Pupsk, Mr. Gumbo, Mr. Bear, Gumbo Bear, Gumbino, Gumbo Bean, Furry Frijole, Speckle Head, Baby Gumbito, our dancing Rasta pup and the furriest, lovingest third of our family, is barking at squirrels and snuffling hay in some great beyond. His spirit will continue to herd Jeff and I into the same space so he can watch us, sniff intently at our knees to judge our comings and goings, rest his head on my laptop to remind me to get out and play, nuzzle us when he knows we're sad, dance between our legs when he knows we're happy, and dutifully chase away the mail truck to always ensure the safety of his pack. I miss him so desperately that I sometimes can't breathe, but am so happy that Jeff and I got to be his daddy and mommy for over 13 years. I love you so, so much, Gumbo Bear. There'll never be another pupsk like you.Cassandra HunterTukwila, WashingtonMarch 19, 2017
Pal
8/1/2003 - 3/17/2017Pal was a champion! He had been a racing dog, and had come in first place numerous times. He also placed second and third several times as well before being retired. Once he retired, he was perfectly happy spending his days lounging and relaxing! The one job he embraced during his retirement was that of guard dog. He would get up several times during the night, and go to the doors and windows. He would bark at passers-by and even at squirrels on the fence. He took his guard-dog job very seriously. He was such a good dog, always sweet, right until the end. He will always be our Pal. We will always love you Pal!Tracey PlaninzOviedo, FloridaMarch 19, 2017

Megabit
2/8/2002 - 3/15/2017My darling Megabit, to have loved you was heaven on earth.
At night, the rhythm of your soft breathing was a Lullaby of sweet calm.
During the day, your high-pitched barking was a March that set my feet in motion.
A look from you, a turn of the chin, or lifted ears was an Aria in the Opera of our life.
Your passing was a long single note held until your breath gave way.
And now the sound of your spirit echoes through the air
and the rhythm of your being beats forever in my heart.

Kenya
6/3/2004 - 3/2/2017Kenya was an amazing Labrador. He began each morning bringing in the newspaper. Mid day he held his own leash as we walked in the neighborhood, and in the evening, he nuzzled on the couch as we watched television. As I have often said, he is the easiest son we raised (including our three 'human' sons).
Kenya was cursed with lousy hips but he managed for 12 1/2 years and he ran, swam and retrieved to exhaustion.

There has been a huge hole in our hearts since we said good bye to Kenya. That sounds dramatic but it is a fact.
