Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Major
11/28/2002 - 10/23/2014Major,
You were the most beautiful, loving, and perfect companion to Mike and me. Since you arrived in our lives in such a big package, you were our focus and our joy. You made friends with every creature you met, and there are many people who will miss you when they hear you have gone. Cruel DM took your legs, but your heart and mind were so strong; you didn't want to leave. I will see you again and think of you every day.

Rocky
2/26/2004 - 10/18/2014In loving memory of Rocky our beautiful Husky (with the most gorgeous piercing blue eyes) who peacefully left his earthly existence to wait for us by the Rainbow Bridge on October 18, 2014. You were truly a cherished member of our family and will always be missed and never forgotten. Our lives are forever changed and our hearts grateful for the joy and love you brought us for a little over 10 years. I have ordered a special picture frame for you that says "Pawprints in Heaven - Pawprints on my Heart" and how true that is.

Love and kisses forever,
Mommy & Daddy, Jordan

Saudade
2/3/2006 - 9/10/2014Sadly we lost our lovely boy Saudade to stomach cancer. He was so young and full of life and was taken entirely too soon. This happened very quickly without much time to prepare for the loss. There is no way to fully comprehend our loss. The stillness and quiet in the house is deafening.

I’ve always been a Weimaraner lover and Charles gave me/us the best birthday present I could have ever imagined a little over 8 years ago. His name is CH Mischief’s O Saudade de Arpoador (AKA Dade or Dodgie). He earned his AKC breed championship title at 15 months and enjoyed many years in the sport of agility (a series of jumps, weaves and obstacles on a timed course that we ran together). The bond that we established in the agility ring is one that is so incredibly intense because success relies on minor physical and verbal cues and a whole lot of trust. Trust that he will do what I ask of him and his trust that I will be in a certain place at a certain time and not run over him.

Weimaraners are the type of dog that rely in physical contact with you or at least have one eye open watching you at all times. They are very sensitive and have extreme separation anxiety when you are gone, as they just want to be with you and constantly share their unconditional love. Saudade was no different, as he was always watching us with his loving eyes awaiting praise and affection.

Saudade was graced with 2 incredible breeders who we call our family. They have always been there for us in thick and thin and we can’t thank them enough. Saudade just loved them and went crazy when they arrived and heard, “pup pup pup” chanted by them. He obviously recalled a wonderful and loving time as a puppy and many visits to see his grandparents. Our walkers through they years from Becky’s Pet Care made his live so special and we are so grateful to them for keeping him safe. Daycare was at Dogtopia in Tysons and the staff there just adored him as he enjoyed running around with all of his friends. The team at A Click Above (ACA) nurtured us through obedience and agility training. They are a special group of individuals who patiently worked with us inch by inch to accomplish each task and build upon our skills. We asked the ACA crew if we could have a couple hours to do a final set of runs the weekend before he passed and they agreed. Saudade always struggled with completing his weaves poles. This day, he did four weave poll runs and hit every mark. Thank you for the opportunity to train with your crew and one last time to enjoy the team spirit that he and I shared on the course.

Saudade was the center of our lives and our days began and ended with him. For the past eight and a half years we tried to keep the little guy healthy, happy and exhausted. Exhausted was always the challenge, as he loved people, animals and his toys. We have many headless Froggies and Bear-ies as evidence.

We thank you, dear Saudade, for all that you gave to us. You are truly a man’s best friend and we love you very much. We hope you are playing with your Uncles Finley and Orson in some open field or doggie beach, where it is always sunny and full of squirrels to chase. We miss you little buddy and don’t worry, we won’t sit in your chair. It is always free for you to climb back in it.

Thanks to each of you who reached out with flowers, cards, donations in Saudade’s name, virtual hugs, sympathy, prayers, tissues, and kind wise words. And thank you to Janet Meyer for being with Saudade, Charlie and me as we took the last step of this journey. You made his passing a peaceful and loving experience and we are very glad that he was at home with the three of us at his side.

Should anyone want to donate in Saudade’s name, please do so to your local rescue or our favorite local Weimaraner rescue. http://www.dcweimclub.org/rescue/index.php

Sophie
7/13/2002 - 10/13/2014My little dog Sophie passed away one week ago today on Monday October the 13th. She was 12 years old. I wanted to take this opportunity to share my appreciation for her. The words are hard to come by now, I miss her so much. She was such a big part of our family and we all loved her so much. She dealt with so many different health problems and never stopped being the precious, sweet girl that she always was.

Even though she couldn’t see or hear and her skin was very painful, she never stopped wagging that little tail of hers. My heart was broken when I had to say good bye. I’ve spent the last week writing down all my memories of her and all God taught me through allowing her to be a part of my life. She truly was a gift. Right now our house feels empty and and I can’t help but be sad. Hopefully, in time, I will be joyful in all my memories of her. She brought so much love and joy into all our lives.

Thank you Sophie for being such a good friend to me, you will always be with me, and I love you so much. I will always miss you and be grateful for the time we had. I will see you again some day. I want to also thank you for all the fun. I am so sorry for all the pain you endured. I am glad your suffering is over. All my love, always. Darline. p.s. I keep your toy baby close to me at all times. The whole family misses you. xo xo

Beatrice
10/17/2014Precious Beatrice was my best friend who gave unconditional love for 17-1/2 years. She was a shiny brown-black brindle, mix-breed pup when she was adopted from the Humane Society 17-1/2 years ago. As the years passed, her brindle color turned gray, but she never lost her spunk and spirit. She loved her walks on the beach and pier, and at the harbor and river. And on her last day, she was still excited to walk a few feet up the street, before coming in to take her final nap. I love my dog, Beattie, and will miss her every day.Jessie MacLeodVentura, CaliforniaOctober 21, 2014

Sake
9/7/2001 - 10/13/2014In loving memory of Sake our 13 year old big and beautiful girl
In Our Heart, Sake.
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.
Kelly and Andrew
