Jaeden
9/11/2001 - 10/16/2015I remember wanting a pug my whole life... I was 19 and Jaeden was 2 months old when we became besties. I'm pretty sure it was after watching Milo and Otis and knowing pugs were part Chinese, like me, so we were the perfect pair..
Jaeden HELPED ME GROW UP. I remember potty training him taking a year and a half as I lived in a 3rd floor apartment ... And the many nights I could've stayed out way later than I should have .... He grounded me. He was the one source of unconditional love who depended on me to be a grown up and take care of HIM. I remember being in my darkest days.. Fighting depression... Dealing with financial troubles... And him sticking by me and being the driving force to help me not give up on him or us..
In 2008 I came home to him in such bad pain from his knee cap giving way... And he had knee surgery on the left one to help as best that I could. I remember pushing him around in a stroller and people asking me all about my baby until they noticed it was a furry pug inside..
Many friends and family have even grown close to him. Gary has been his Dad for 5 years and loved him more than anything. He's always been a part of my life. After 14 years at my office job, leaving him at home during the day and seeing him when I could - I was able to have the chance to work from home and spend all of this year having more quality time with him during my "work" hours... As he grew older I also did ‪#‎Jaedenslist‬ where friends and family helped me to brighten up his golden days with a fire truck ride... A pug play date or two... Time on the beach with the sunset... Fireworks...dog foodie dates...and Jaeden got to go on his longest roadtrip ever with us over our 3 day trek out west. He got to see mountains and beautiful scenery with us and lay with me for three days snuggling on our car ride of memories...
Right before the move Jeeden showed some signs having problems moving around and being in pain when he had to go outside or get up...With the help of some medication he made it through our trip and into the new house without any stress, but started to have some bad days again this week...
I've struggled with what to do for months. I've taken quizzes to determine how to treat older dogs... Researched medications to better his life... Have asked friend and family and God for guidance... Have tried to justify the bad versus good days he was having...Having him at such a young age I never knew there would come a day I would have to do the most selfless act ever and decide to let his pain stop... Let him pass on to the Rainbow Bridge to be with God waiting for me... So that he was running again... Moving around again... Living a better quality of life...I spent all day yesterday holding him and loving on him and sharing lunch with him...I kept apologizing to him for all of my shortcomings and asking him to tell me I was doing the right thing. His gentle eyes just looked up at me calm as ever as he normally freaked out when I cry... As if to tell me "it's okay mama..."
Lap of Love's vet Tobey was the angel we asked for. He came into our home and helped us say Goodbye to Jaeden on this physical earth and he passed away peacefully last night with me holding his paw the entire time and is at ease now without hurt or anxiety....
I know this is a process. The guilt.. The unstoppable crying...the pain... The missing him. When anyone tries to console me I always can respond "I know..." Because I know time heals all things... I just miss my baby so much... It's inexplainable the hole that's left without him here with us... I'll look to pour positivity into others and lean on my friends and family to go through this... I'm welcoming distraction but I'm also working to be sure I can share his legacy - he was one amazing pug who can never be replaced....

Haji
5/1/2008 - 10/14/2015Haji,
We didn't get to spend nearly enough time together. There were so many more straws to fetch, pens to hide, and food of mine to steal from the counter. I wanted years more of head kisses and pawing for attention and lap naps. I want to hear more of your chirp-like meows and watch you spend many more hours making muffins on your bed. It hurts me so much that I won't be able to do or see or hear any of that now. I'm still so heartbroken, and though I know that you were ready to go after a hard fought, extended battle with cancer, I was nowhere near ready to let you. Your brother also misses you very much. He's taken to sleeping on your blanket and he's a little bummed he can't steal your food when no one is watching now. I'm glad that you can breathe easy and hope that you're still a master fetcher. I love you, my sweet fur baby. I'll never forget all the love and light you brought to my life.

Isabel
10/11/2015Our sweet, sweet Isabel, your passing has left such a void in our lives. We see signs of you everywhere. Your constant love, sweet disposition, and desire to be with us every moment is sorely missed. We cherish the time we had with you and feel blessed that we were chosen to be your family. You were such a significant and constant part of our lives and you will be in our hearts forever. While I miss you so, I can feel your presence; this brings me such comfort.

Isabel, your love is a gift that we will keep with us for as long as we live. It is a Love which is ours alone. And until we ourselves leave this world and join you - it is a Love that we will always possess. The Love we feel for you will always remain and continue to grow.

We love you so,
Mom, Dad, Big and Little Brothers, and Sissy

4/10/1999 - 10/13/2015Nothing in this world is harder than saying good-bye. I don't know the author of this poem, but I feel it expresses the feelings of love and loss simply and beautifully.

Do you think the time has come? May I say good-bye
To pain-filled days and endless nights?
I've lived my life and done my best, an example tried to be.
So can't I take that step beyond and set my spirit free?
I didn't want to go at first, I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now to a warm and loving light.
I want to go, I really do. It’s difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me and share your love and tears.
I know you're sad and so afraid, because I feel your fears.
I'll not be far, I promise that, and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you, wherever you may go.
Thank you for loving me.
You know I love you too.
That’s why it’s hard to say good-bye and end this life with you.
So hold me now, just one more time and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me, you'll let me go today.

Zack
October 9, 2015
On this day, I had to say goodbye to my best friend, family member, constant loyal companion and soul mate.

To my beloved Zack,
I miss you, love you, and will love you forever. Your big beautiful soulful blue eyes and the warmth of your radiance always provided me comfort for the past 18 ½ years. When I look to the sky, I notice it even more brilliant, sparkling blue and bright, because I know you are there. Run free my friend, jump, play, and be free from pain. Your memory and spirit still lives on, and I have hope and faith that we will indeed meet again, and when that time comes it will be for eternity. I am truly grateful you came into my life.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go, you go, my dear)
