Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Pepper
5/1/2016 - 5/6/2016Big old Pepper went everywhere with my wife Bonnie for the first 8 years of his life. He was a constant companion and protector for her while they lived up in Washington. Then we Bonnie & I reconnected and she moved back to California with Pepper, he became my best pal too. He always had a sense of right and wrong and would try to make sure Bonnie & I were happy. For those last 5 years, he begin sleeping on our big King bed with us and then when he could not jump on the bed, he slept right next to it, sometimes by Bonnie & sometimes by me.

Then in the last 6 months he could not even climb stairs so stayed in our family room with access to the outdoor patio if we kept the door open. We spent many hours watching TV & on computers in the Family Room with our loving dog. But when he stopped eating and drinking last week, we had Dr. Amanda come to our home and put him to sleep in the most professional and caring manner possible. We miss good old Pepper so much and will never forget him. The Family room seems so empty now that he is gone!

Gus
1/31/1993 - 4/28/2016It's been a week since Gus left us behind, and we miss our sweet old sir so much. We miss his loud, happy purr that he seemed to make with his whole body. We miss his funny rounded nose and his pretty blue eyes looking up whenever he saw us, and the way he came over to sit with us as soon as he saw one of us on the sofa. We miss his constant cuddles and how happy he always seemed to be around us. Even at the end, when he was in pain, he seemed to only want to be around us. We miss his long, loping legs and the little section of fur on his tail that always looked disheveled even though he groomed meticulously. We miss his funny creaky meow, and we even miss how he could make it sound so grating if he really wanted our attention. He was very good at telling us what he wanted, or taking us to it if we didn't understand what he was saying--especially when he wanted food. We miss how he would bump his head against ours and purr to show us he loved us. We miss his weight on the bed at night, right between us, and how he would still be there in the mornings, snuggled against one of us. Our home feels so much emptier without him here. Even though he was part of our lives for only five of his long years, we will always be his forever family. He will be in our hearts every day until we see him again.Kristin WallsDurham, North CarolinaMay 6, 2016
Hugo
4/24/2002 - 4/18/2016It's been two weeks and three days since you left us and I still can't believe you're gone. I come home every day expecting to see your cute face in the window. I miss that so much. I miss your slobbery kisses, our daily walking dates and your goofy antics. I miss having my very own little shadow and sunbathing together in the backyard. I even miss things I never thought I would miss...you hogging the bed, your stinky breath and fur literally everywhere. I couldn't vacuum often enough! The house is so quiet and cold without you. We miss our best friend. We talk about you often and we will cherish our memories of you forever.Heather CarthyMission Viejo, CaliforniaMay 5, 2016
Gizzmo
8/24/2001 - 5/4/2016Our beloved Gizzmo went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. We miss him terribly. He was such an important part of our family and will leave a hole in all of our hearts. He still had a puppy face even with the gray muzzle and the gray around his eyes. He still gave us kisses and hugs up until the moment he passed. We love you Gizzy, it's never going to be the same without you.Carol PrayLouisburg, North CarolinaMay 5, 2016
Lacey
4/7/2016Dear Lacey, when we rescued you, those bladder stones were painful! I don't know your history of the previous years, but we gave you our best shot. We nursed you through the operation, and you went from scrawny 45lbs to 70! We had a whole regimen of daily pills and special diet. You were up and chasing squirrels and cats! You got to harmonize when a siren went by on the street. You guarded the house and wore a path to the gate. We had wonderful walks through the neighborhood, and occasional trips to the dog park. Sadly and much too quickly your health failed. Several vet opinions and the X-rays confirmed the sad news. We picked a nice shady spot out back and called Dr. Annie. For a couple days we cuddled and stopped all the medicine except pain killers, and had favorite treats. Dr. Annie came to the house and you amazed us when you jumped up and barked-always the Protector! But then you laid down beside me and we cuddled till you went to sleep. Just think, no more medicines, no baths, no teeth brushing, no nail filings. Just those favorite treats, lots of cats & squirrels to chase and we'll be along soon and meet you at The Rainbow Bridge. Love, Mom & DadJohn WeyrickOrlando, FloridaMay 5, 2016
Oakley
11/15/2011 - 4/30/2016You where a special girl one of a kind. We spent many days doing the things we loved. We miss your unique way of letting us know you wanted loving. You watched over your family and pack just like a mom. You are missed and always will be. Rest in peace old girl.Jo Ann KemberlingWrightwood, CaliforniaMay 4, 2016
Joy Weis
5/11/2003 - 5/2/2016Joy, aka Stinkerbell, was my constant companion for 10 years. She was my little shadow. She would greet me at the door every time I came home. Even though we lived in an apartment she would follow me around making sure she knew where I was at all times. She was a faithful companion and a great friend. 6 years ago the 2 of us got on a plane together and moved to California. 5 years later we got back on that plane and came home. She made me laugh. She will be greatly missed.Kathleen WeisWashington, District of ColumbiaMay 4, 2016
Casey Mccoy
12/22/2002 - 5/3/2016We cannot be more grateful to Dr. Courtney Graham for giving Casey the gift of release. We couldn't ask for a more peaceful passing for Casey. She died peacefully in her own bed without fear or anxiety. We should all be so fortunate. Rest in peace Case. You will be dearly missed.Ken McCoyClinton Township, MichiganMay 4, 2016
Mo-mo
11/2/2000 - 4/21/2016He was my angel way before he earned his wings today. He was the most laid back & loving fur baby I have ever met. He never met a stranger, was very social, never shyed away from a crowd and was very protective of his family. Love you Mo-Mo and thank you for choosing us! My heart hurts without you.

Bosco
10/31/2001 - 3/25/2016It's been a little over a month that we said our last goodbye to Bosco. My heart still sinks a bit when I enter or leave my empty home expecting to hear his collar jingling and see his anticipatory ears perked for his hello head rub or invite for a car ride. Bosco became a member of our family when he was four months old already trained and house broken. He pranced on a leash, walking between my two young sons, ears and tail up with active eyes and mouth open in a smile. His only fault if I can call it that was his love run and play chase whenever the front door opened. He thought it was great fun. I did not share his joy at the time but as he aged I grew to treasure his ability to chase squirrels and rabbits. He loved car rides as evidenced by the dog slobber that became a hallmark on the passenger side of my car. There was such life and love in his spirit. He was the ultimate loyal protector and friend . I miss you so much dear Bosco!!! Rest in peace.

A close friend wrote this about Bosco shortly before he died
.
"My bestest and most favorite four legged friend, the most ruggedly handsome and wet snouted, brown-eyes-full-of-wonder canine is soon to depart this earthly plane. Rest soon dear Bosco. May you find yourself in a land where the grass stretches on forever, the smells innumerable, and the squirrels are unusually fat and slow"
.
I couldn't say it any better than that!
