Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Miss o
11/28/2010 - 7/13/2016Miss O was an exceptional dog from day one, and my best friend. We only had her for one year, but in that year, she lived like she had never lived before, and loved us to no end. She changed our lives forever. We adopted Miss O at the age of 4 1/2 from a greyhound rescue group. She was the sweetes and the most well behaved dog I have ever owned. She became my walking buddy. Sadly she lost her battle with lymphoma and left us way too soon. She will be forever missed and always loved. May you always run free Miss O.Yvonne SmithPembroke Pines, FloridaJuly 15, 2016

Sunshine Daydream
9/6/2001 - 7/9/2016Dear Sunshine Daydream,

You will be forever in our hearts. We were the luckiest family to be together for almost 15 years and you brought us love and happiness for every minute you were with us. Although our hearts ache with the loss of you, the memories you left us will sustain us. Thank you for loving us.

So my darling Sunshine, remember:

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

Reach out your hand, if your cup be empty
If your cup is full, may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go, no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone

Love Always, Mommy

Marble Ridge
4/9/2004 - 7/9/2016On Saturday July 9th, 2016 we had to say goodbye to our dear Marble Ridge, whom we adopted from Pocono Greyhound Adoption in 2007. And yes, that was his racing name and a perfect name for him. Just a few things I would like to share about Marble. I remember the day we went to see him in the Poconos and everyone from the Pocono Greyhound Adoption Group were so kind. There is where we first met Suzanne Ewing, Marble's foster Mom and her husband Scott. I remember having a conversation over the phone with Craig Shide concerning Marble possibly having sleep aggression issues. We questioned if we really wanted to adopt him. We thank God that we decided to adopt him. He was a perfect boy, and no sleep aggression. I remember the day he was delivered to us by Kim Shide and Craig Shide. It was a cold February day. I remember watching out the window like a kid on Christmas, waiting to see when they arrived. And across the street came Craig, with Kim handling skinny, young, stunning Marble Ridge. While he was exploring the downstairs, our resident cat in charge Cassie, sucker punched Marble a few times in the face. Cassie grew to love Marble! I remember that day when the telephone rang for the first time since he was here and he cocked his head and his scooby-do ears looking like what the heck is that?? He was always a true gentleman, even after our bossy Sadie came, our female grey. They were ok with each other's company. There were road trips. We attended many Pocono Greyhound Annual Picnics. We traveled to Western PA, up to Erie and took Route 6 back to Eastern PA. We travelled to the Adirondacks, where Marble and Sadie escaped from the hotel room and zoomed a total of a block or two, they finally stopped at a dead end of a parking lot. Where thankfully a lady was petting them until we "ran" over to retrieve them. Imagine running after them and a few guys were on a balcony and I was like, hey did you see two greyhounds run through here?? Lol, funny now, but not then. Lost in the woods of the Adirondacks would not be good!! We travelled to Delaware for Greyhounds Reach the Beach in the Spring. That was a fun time! It was Marble's birthday and he got a hat to wear at the ice cream social. Then a few years ago he got sick. We almost thought we were going to lose him. They had to carry him in on a stretcher. We thought he was having seizures or a stroke. A day or two in the emergency hospital and a couple days being a guest at the Regular Vets office during the day, he was home. Slowly walking and weak, it took him months to really recover. We think he had an inner ear problem. After that, we treasured every day with him not knowing when or if it would happen again. Maybe a year or so ago, he started urinating in the house, something he only did once or twice in all the time we had him until then. He was such a good boy. He had early kidney disease. He tried, but he urinated more. Then about two weeks ago he had a bloody nose. A dog with a bloody nose was not fun to get to the Emergency Vet, but we did it. He had extremely high blood pressure that they believe was a result from his kidney issue. That was the beginning of the end. He started not eating and having an upset tummy. Basically his kidneys were failing. And then the day came for us to say good bye. It seems unreal yet really. But I am glad we could say good bye at home where he was comfortable. We will never forget you Marble Ridge! And thank you to all who had a hand in bringing him to us, from Florida (Judy Shamp) to Pennsylvania!!!!!!!Christine SweigertReading, PennsylvaniaJuly 14, 2016
Gratch
6/30/2016Gratch came to us as a fully grown feral cat and I will attest that I have never shared my home with a more loving and appreciative animal. Please read Gratch's story below and understand that feral animals need to be loved and rescued from a life cruelly shortened by disease and/or starvation which leaves them to die alone without the loving touch they crave and deserve.Gary GoforthArlington, TexasJuly 14, 2016
Dixie Cup Martin

Joel Glasson
1/1/2003 - 7/6/2016For your whole life Foxey, you were a personality. You are a foxey girl with an attitude of being superior in all things dog. We always appreciated your joyful greetings, enthusiastic play, and loving kisses. Your loyalty and love when we needed it most were given and always present. I often thanked God for the honor to have you as my dog. The wonder of another creature that was wild but yours to love, that creature, self aware, choosing to love you back. I pray for your keep over the rainbow bridge until you hear me call, "Foxey.....lets go for a walk."Joel GlassonDurham, North CarolinaJuly 14, 2016
Wally
4/16/1999 - 7/13/2016My wife and I got our little buddy Wally 2 months after we were married back in 99. He was just a pup. We brought him everywhere. He got to travel so much and see so many things. He was a happy little stubborn, tough beagle. He wouldn't back down to no one or thing. We'd take him on walks everyday along with his brother (grim) and sister (nico). The last 2 yrs he acquired the "old dog disease" inner ear something or other, he just would walk in circles. He was still happy though!! He still would "attack" his older brother, and eat like there was no tomorrow, all the way till the end. We gave him two pieces of salmon for his last 2 meals. Fresh king salmon!! Little spoiled monkey. He was the best to us, and we loved him more than anything. We know he's in a better place now and able to rest comfortably. Thank you for the ableness to do this in our home. Thank you lap of love. Dr Ashleigh was super awesome!!! Wally rest in peace 17 yrs 3 months WE LOVE YOU BUDDY!!!!George RodenSeattle, WashingtonJuly 14, 2016

Chico
5/4/2001 - 6/17/2016We loved our dear Chico. He was a sweet spunky little chihuahua. He will always be a highlight of my life. He was there for my first home, car and teaching job after college. He's been with me through it all. I'm so grateful for having experienced his love all these years.Carla GuerraHollywood, FloridaJuly 13, 2016
