Miss Pixie
7/17/2006 - 11/5/2016My big ol' buttercup, Miss Pixie. It didn't take you long to leave your paw print embedded on my heart. I only got the pleasure of your companionship, protection and joyous Golden Retriever smile for 18 months but your presence was mighty. They say I saved your life, but in so many ways, you saved my own that Spring day you came home with me. You are so missed in the household, that 7:30 AM bark (even on the weekends), that bossy bark to go out or come in, and that lovely gentle face. Your courage and love will always be with me. I hope you crossed the rainbow bridge knowing that you have been so loved by so many...you were so very easy to love.Kate LaceyCincinnati, OhioNovember 6, 2016

Maya
9/20/2003 - 10/26/2016My little old lady had to say goodbye a little over a week ago. I started balling the second I attached the picture. I miss her terribly. She was such a sweet girl but the also the boss, ask her brother. I’ve never had a harder day in my 54 years than the day before she said goodbye. I think back on how many good days we had and it helps ease some of the pain. I love her and will always carry her with me in my heart. I’m so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to be able have her say goodbye at home. Of all the many, many blessing I have had, that will be my most treasured.DARRYL STIGALLOrlando, FloridaNovember 5, 2016
Beau
11/1/2016Beau was the sweetest dog you'll ever meet. He had boundless energy when he was younger and always loved going on walks, even when they were physically difficult for him in his senior years. He was a Certified Therapy Dog and adored everyone, especially his cat, Midnight. Beau-Beau, you will be sorely missed. XOXOCarole NowickiButler, New JerseyNovember 5, 2016
Scout
If there ever was a dog that was an angel....it was my Scout. He protected me and watched over me for his 15 1/2 years on this earth. He saw me through many trials and was always there to help me smile again.

He used to sit on the loveseat by the front window and keep a sharp eye out for any movement. Any passer-by would cause his alarm bark to sound off! While some might think this could be annoying, I saw it as, "he was doing his job (in his mind) to protect his family." American Eskimo dogs are very protective by nature. In my mind, it was just one of many, many good things about him. We called him "Love sponge" as he soaked up all the love you could shower on him! He was so loving and protective of his family members and his brother, Cody. Cody was my Sheltie that I also lost back in February. He was a sweet little guy that Scout and I loved very much. Scout seemed to get depressed after his passing.

Strangers were a different story. He had to get to know you before he became friendly. It would take him a while, but as soon as he determined you were not a threat, he would become the "love sponge."

I have a dog door and when he was little, it took him all of about 15 minutes to learn to use it. He was very smart and would walk out of the dog door to lay on the deck in the cool weather. He also LOVED the snow. When it would snow, he would be almost invisible whenever he would go out to the backyard. He was as white as the snow and you had to look for little black eyes and a nose moving just to find him! But all I had to do was call out, TREATS! He would come running. He loved treats...and he got them often.

This is just a couple of the many stories and memories I have about Scout. There are really too many to list. All I know is I miss him and will always love him. He gave to me unconditional love, laughter and smiles that cannot be matched, and will never be forgotten.

RIP sweet Scout and I will see you again someday! xoxo

Lily
5/15/2004 - 11/1/2016In loving memory of our beautiful Lily, our first dog for my two daughters. Lily brought us peace and calm, and she was adopted after she had a litter of puppies. One of her puppies, Scout, was adopted by my aunt and she was able to spend time with him. This helped her a lot. She was graceful, gentle, loved to snuggle, and could eat an entire roast off the barbecue if you turned your back on her. She was very quiet, so you never would suspect it was her! Her younger sister, Angel, and her older sister, Murphy (who went to heaven right before her) were happy companions for many years. We will miss her greatly. We are so thankful to Dr. Amanda for the graceful exit she provided as Lily went home. Angel was able to say goodbye to her also in the privacy of our home, in her favorite spot next to the fireplace. We will always love you, Lily.Michelle JordanSan Juan Capistrano, CaliforniaNovember 4, 2016
Nook
4/30/2008 - 10/9/2016It’s taken me a few weeks to write this. I have written this so many times and then deleted and started all over again. There are not enough words to describe the type of love we have for our sweet Nookie. We still have his kennel up and still have the box blocking the kid’s hallway. It’s a little easier now when I get home but still not pain free. I still remember when we first saw him... We loved him then & he will forever hold a special place in our hearts... Although I know he is in doggy heaven w/our sweet Chihuahua Baby. I know both of them are waiting on us chasing each other & Baby is showing him the ropes... We love & miss you so much my sweet boy until we are together again.Marlene OrdonezHumble, TexasNovember 3, 2016
Mack
9/26/2007 - 10/30/2016In loving memory or our beautiful 200 pound great dane, Mack. He was truly a gently giant. He was 9 years old, we got him when he was 6 weeks old. He has been our king ever since. We will forever love and miss you. The world is for sure a different place without you. Forever frolic and shine till we meet again. You went to sleep on Sunday, October 30 here on earth AND WOKE UP IN HEAVEN! You will always be my sunshine.Sherry ChasteenArlington, TexasNovember 2, 2016
Molly
In memory of my beloved Molly. Molly is my sweet girl who brought so much love, loyalty and happiness to not only my life, but to my family and everyone who met her. I cherish every day I had with her before she crossed the rainbow bridge last week at 11 1/2. Our home is empty, our hearts are heavy and we will miss our Boo forever. Someday we will be together again my sweet baby girl. Forever in my ❤️, always in my mind. Miss you and love you!Jay dePrimoNesconset, New YorkNovember 2, 2016
Nikkei
5/31/2000 - 10/19/2016It's taken me a couple of weeks to write this. The past few weeks were hard without my baby boy. The days are getting easier but no day goes by without thinking of him and getting choked up. Nikkei was a pretty independent little Shiba Inu and not real big on affection when he was younger. He never gave kisses unless you had just eaten something yummy and it was on your lips. No matter how hard you tried to get a kiss from him he looked at you like you were crazy. I knew he loved me though. It was just understood between us. His sweet personality and the serious way he looked at me (as if he understood me) was all I ever needed from him though and no amount of kisses could have been better than that. Once in a very long while I could sneak a kiss from him in though and because he gave them so sparingly they were truly special.

His brother (Kyo-also a Shiba Inu) was Nikkei's buddy from the time they were puppies together. They were a little over a year apart and were great for each other. They slept in the dog bed together (and my bed), went on walks together, ate together and fought together on occasion. Kyo was just over 16 in 2014 when I had to let him go (CCDS-doggy dementia and a previous stroke had taken their toll) and Nikkei missed him. Kyo's passing, while hard, wasn't as difficult as Nikkei's has been. Probably because when I let Kyo go, I still had Nikkei to help fill the void. Now-it's lonely. My comfort is looking at pictures of him and remembering all of the happy times and the countless walks (more like jogs) we took when he could still get around good. Nikkei also developed CCDS-doggy dementia about a year ago and steadily declined from then on. At the end he was confused and wasn't getting enjoyment from anything anymore. He was very anxious in the evening and rarely slept for longer than an hour at a time. He took to wearing a Thunder Shirt and it was really helpful for relaxing him and looked super cute on him. I did everything I could to make sure the last few months were as good as they could be for him though. My husband and I would still take him for short walks in the evenings if he could manage and I started home cooking his meals. He truly appreciated home-cooking as opposed to dog food. I had him in on vitamins and some herbal supplements for his dementia so I believe in my heart that I helped him as much as I could through the hard times.

I know Nikkei is with his brother Kyo now and is energetic, curious, full of life and independent once again-like he was meant to be.

Nikkei-you were and are my baby boy and will never be replaced in my heart. I love you.
