Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Nellie
1/4/2006 - 12/30/2018The biggest lap dog and laziest black lab you will ever meet. From day one she just wanted to be with people. We called her a people dog, she loved to be around other dogs, but if you took her to a dog park, she would go up to the people and not play with the other dogs. She showed unconditional love. My husband Jack had 2 back surgeries and each one, she would help him down the steps, by just being at his side and making sure he got down the steps ok. Jack taught her a trick to go and get his slippers one at a time. She showed so much pride it that, even almost to the end she still couldn't do the steps that well, she tried to still do her trick. When she passed we buried those slippers with her. She never was over weight but for a lab she never wanted to go for walks, she just wanted to be close to home. She also didn't like to swim, we have a local doggy dip and my son Joe had to pick her up and put her in the baby end of the pool. Nellie swam but didn't like it. She also went up to my brother in laws cabin time to time and one time Jack arrived there and when he opened the car door, she saw a bunch of geese on the river bank, she took off after them and ended up in the river, chasing them, I guess the Lab in her knew that she was a bird hunting dog in her DNA.Carol FlahertyPittsburgh, PennsylvaniaJanuary 1, 2019
Tiggerboots
5/14/2005 - 12/30/2018Tiggerboots was a sweet boy. He was the boss of his brother Dandylion even though he was smaller. We loved him fiercely and completely even when he developed some pretty bad habits. He was a very handsome boy. Orange and white tabby with four white boots and lots of stripes. He walked like a tiger - strutting around everywhere he went. Didn't like to be pet a lot but would follow you around like a dog and when I sat on the couch he would hold my hand or arm all evening. He weathered his cancer like a trooper for several months but when it progressed it was fast and he had enough. I wish he was still here but without the cancer of course. It is amazing how fast almost 14 years can go by.Roxanne FosheeApex, North CarolinaJanuary 1, 2019
Savannah
11/3/2005 - 12/31/2018Savannah, for 13 years you brought so much joy and happiness to my life. I will miss you everyday.Melissa BentleyPompano Beach, FloridaJanuary 1, 2019
Aspen Lane
9/4/2004 - 12/29/2018Aspen Lane was my best friend and companion that I could ever dream of. She understood me and loved me like no other, as I did her (most of the time :o)). For over 14 years, we were life long partners, in the good times and the bad, she was by my side, with support and love. Aspen had an amazing personality, love for everyone may have been her motto. She could assess the room and determine who needed a little nudge of love or support. Her tender tender heart, melted my heart. That is why I knew I had to get her certified as a therapy dog. After rigorous training and classes, Aspen was accepted and enrolled in ‘Love on 4Paws‘, where we spent our weekends at the local hospitals in Southern California visiting the sick and terminally ill. Seeing my 100 pound baby girl jump in bed with the patients was amazing and so rewarding. She loved it!! When I would put her therapy vest on, she would prance around so proud, ready for duty! Aspen has taught me so much about life, such as, patience, love no matter what, don’t judge, don’t hold a grudge and treasure every single moment with the ones you love, because they will not be here forever. But forever they will be in your memories and in your heart - those 4 precious paws made the most amazingly wonderful imprint on my heart and my life. Thank you Aspen Lane for sharing your amazing life with me and making me a better person. I will love you forever and more.Emily Vander StoepDeerfield, IllinoisDecember 31, 2018
Bubbles
3/2/2005 - 12/29/2018Bubbles was a sweet girl, that I had the pleasure of rescuing. She was the light of our household, whom I look forward to taking care of everyday. She will be missed beyond words. Your sweet spirit has made me a better person and will stay with me forever. May you rest well with no more pain. I love you beyond words and wish I had one more day to give you a hug. ❤️Denise FlowersFranklin, WisconsinDecember 31, 2018
Josie
7/13/2001 - 12/27/2018Josie is in our hearts forever. Josie is now running freely chasing squirrels and rabbits at Rainbow Bridge. Josie never got sprayed by a skunk. I am thankful for that. We are going to miss the everyday things we did for her. She came home on my lap and left peacefully being petted on my lap by both of us when she left. Our hearts are broken.Deborah O'TooleKnoxville, TennesseeDecember 31, 2018
Bella
9/12/2009 - 12/26/2018Realistically, I never wanted a pet. The thought of taking care of another living thing when I could barely take care of myself was a hard pill to swallow. But when Bella came into my life, it changed everything. The start was difficult with the training and everything that goes with that, but after she was trained, it changed everything. She turned out to be the best damn companion that anyone could ask for. She was literally by my side day in and day out and always had my best interest at heart. The look in her face when she would see me is beyond describable. She was an amazing pet, more than what I deserved. Loyal to a fault, could never see any wrong in me and would jump off a cliff if I did so first just to follow her dad. We as humans do not deserve pets like this, they are loyal beyond measure and I am eternal grateful for the love that she gave without needing anything but love in return. She was by far the best dog period. The love that she brought out in people that didn’t realize that love for a pet existed was amazing. People that I was surrounded by that never thought they could love an animal, changed their mind when they met Bella. She could literally brighten up a room when she walked in with her wagging tail, large tongue, and immediate want for affection. She loved everything about the humans she was surrounded by, she is the epitome of unconditional love. We love and miss you baby girl!Fabian LopezGarden Grove, CaliforniaDecember 31, 2018
D. O. G.
4/30/2016 - 12/28/2018D.O.G. Zuzek was a male black lab who was actually flown down from Ohio to us here in Florida. He was vibrant since he was a puppy. He loved to swim, play ball, go for walks and play ball with the oranges off of our fruit trees. He truly was part of the family from day one. He lived a great life. We would always have fun swimming in the pool and all the neighbor kids always thought he was so cool because he loved to swim. Everyone who knew or meet D.O.G. always commented on what a great spirit he had. He had eyes that I would swear at times resembled human eyes the way he would look at you. We have 2 children and he loved them. He knew when they were sick and would lay by them and rest with them. He just had a way of knowing what you needed. I always joked that when D.O.G. would not be with us anymore I would be a mess. I truly never knew or understood how hard it would really be. This month
D. O.G. declined. He stopped eating and drinking this past week and then had issues walking. We decided as a family that this was no longer our happy, playful D.O.G. it was just becoming a shell of him. We put him to rest on 12/28/18. We all surrounded him held his paws and I kept my hand close to his heart. I could feel his heart fading as the last dose of medicine was given. I just laid there with him after he passed. Everyday I cry. I cry because of happy moments and memories, but also because he is no longer here. Rest in peace D.O.G. Zuzek. We love you

Kona
3/20/2005 - 6/6/2018Kona,

There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you. You were one in a million girl. However, I’m glad you’re not in pain anymore. We love you always.

Roxie Hart
3/13/2007 - 12/27/2018Roxie Hart was lost as a puppy by chance and found by us with purpose. She came into our lives at the perfect time to help ease one loss, and continued to make our days brighter with her big happy grin. She was always a kind and loyal companion to all of us, particularly her Momma Faye and best buddy, Macho Man.

True to her name, she fought with a huge heart to get her family through Christmas before she decided to go peacefully in her favorite spot on the back porch two days later. We were all very saddened that this time had caught up to us and her, but we take comfort in knowing that we had so many years packed full of her gracious heart and unconditional love. Rest In Peace, Pretty Girl. We love you always!
