5/15/2010 - 5/4/2020Louie was truly one of a kind. He was the sweetest, most gentle, loving dog. LouLou made everyone feel happy and loved. He always knew exactly what I needed. Today is one month without my Louie and not a day goes by without me thinking of him. He will always be in my heart.Christine DiMedioAudubon, New JerseyJune 4, 2020
Leo Lou
3/1/2002 - 5/20/2020Where do I begin??? It has taken me over 2 weeks to get the courage up to share a memory of my sweet boy Leo! His passing has left me breathless. But how blessed am I to have had something to love for 18+years?. He was the last of my triplets to leave me. He was my only boy...Leo had 2 sisters that went before him. As you can tell from this picture he was a non stop talker and could be quite demanding at times. Oh how I miss your different meows, your head butts and how you would fly down the stairs and enter a room even at the ripe old age of 17. You were smart, loving and the best little companion any girl could ever have. I will forever miss the nights when I couldn't sleep and you were right by my shoulder to keep me company. Saying goodbye to you was the hardest thing I have ever done because your mind was all there but your little body was failing you so I had to let you go. Thank you so much for always being there for me and especially during the dark years I had to endure during my divorce. I am happy you are no longer suffering and you are with June Bug, your favorite sister, and Ixtapa your other sister. You are forever in my heart and I am so thankful God gifted me you!!! Leo Lou forever my sweet boy!Deborah WilsonMATTHEWS, North CarolinaJune 4, 2020
4/1/2004 - 6/3/2020THE THAITHAI.. well. Life was wonderfull with our Zander. but Tiffany who worked at the precious puppy.. calls me at work to say " mom the most adorable papillon puppy just arrived here, i brought zander and this pap pup and he are loving each other.. welll... i said no no no no no .. no more dogs..... so after work my car all by itself drove it's way to the store.. and this wee little pap who was in a crib was quite the imp.. wiggling & kissing me..when i walked away he had the most adorable wee bark and i would go back for to love on him more.. cuddles kisses wiggles.. this went on for almost 2 hours.. well the owner of the store says.. why don't you take him home for a SLEEP OVER.... SUCKER BUTTON AGAIN PUSHED>. so tiff drove home in her car with the zanderman.. and i had the Thai-Thai... trying to figure out how on earth i was going to explain this one to my HUBBY.. who happend to drive up at the exact same time that we did.. so picture me getting out of the car with this wiggly bundle of love .. and holding him out to my hubby .. (batting my eyes the whole way.. saying.. just hold him for a min while i open the front door.. well my hubby was .. no way.. not going to hold IT.. no no no no more dogs... well we convinced my hubby that he was a Rowswell on his terms..he had to Name him.. and you should have heard the names he was coming up with.. We decided that we would have a naming party.. and invited all our friends over for the fun.. what name to name this wee papillon imp.. the dinner party was quite the blast.. we cooked Thai food for everyone.. and when anyone asked for more THai .. the imp would come running.. hence.. how he earned his name.. THAITHAI... ( but my hubby and Son inlaw have a better name for our Thai.. AssPain LOL) well life went on and the Thai-Thai was quite the playfull little imp.. but he started loosing weight.. and getting very mopey.. wouldn't eat.. his hair felt like Hay.. i just had no cluewhat was wrong.. and when he reached 6 months old we had scheduled his big vet appointment to get him Neutered.. i got a very nerve racking call at work.. The vet couldn't do the operation and they needed my approval to do lots more test.. i was extremely confused.. why ..what was wrong with my Thai-Thai.. they kept saying they weren't quite sure what was wrong.. but his blood work came back very bad.. and his liver values were way off. this started quite a new chapter in the Rowswell Household.. We followed the vets instructions but my little imp was failing horribly. we called it the eehore mode.. is was sooo horrible.. the vet did tons of blood test , MRI's and cat-scans of his liver ,the pictures they showed me and explained this little 7 month old papilons liver resembled a liver of a 16 year dog who was in liver failure. his gall bladder was full of sludge. we even attempted a biopsy.. the bills were piling up. almost over $12,000 spent and still no solution.. poor Thai-Thai was down to a mere 2.8 lbs. just skin and bones. his body was in atrophy.. the vet insisted we euthanize him that he wouldn't last more then a few months.. if that.. and if he did he wouldn't live past 2 years of age the damage done was extentive and not reversable... this after putting us through $12,000.00 dollars worth of testing medicines foods.. well I fired that vet ( and ignored my mom ... love you mom) I did lots and lots of research. i reached out to the vet schools ( i learned way too much about the liver. enough to be dangerous) in the search i found one college that was doing studies on puppy mill dogs who were liver compromised.. well.. our ThaiThai joined this research.. and he is their prize Success story. I cook for him every day .... we did lots and lots of Vitamin b shots.. lots of special holistic healing practices. body messages to get the blood flow. my baby Thai will be 12 this APRIL 1st.. he fooled them all. (This was written 4 years ago my thaithai turned 16 this past April and on june 3 was helped over the rainbow bridge he is out of pain and at peace .....) he is still the playfull imp.. He still is sir Barks-Alot.. and Mr Wiggles... and adores playing with squeekey toys.. we go on walks everyday.. and when he tires out we put the imp in the stroller... he is one special fur-baby.. and every day with my Thai-Thai is an amazing day.. full of unconditional love. This story was written 4 years ago my Thaithai turned 16 on April 1 2020 this year and yesterday he was put out of pain thank you Dr brennock ....we sent him over the rainbow bridge he was my heart puppy thank you all for reading his amazing story I will forever love my impJodylynne RowswellJupiter, FloridaJune 4, 2020
Gypsy Rose
9/1/2007 - 6/3/2020Gypsy Rose is/was a wonderful and beautiful GermanShepherd who came into my life in September of 2014 from Bremerton , Washington. We rode across Puget Sound on a ferry boat to Camino Island. From there, she had to take an airplane flight to get to my home in Southern California. She joined with my other German Shepherd rescue, Gunnar, and they formed the most beautiful couple. They were together constantly until 2017, when Gunnar went to the Rainbow 🌈 Bridge. Thereafter, Gypsy was by my side literally every moment of every day. She kept me company in times of darkness and distress, always loving me more than I could possibly have understood. She had a good life, as we moved couple of times. She handled the change of scene with great courage. She was loved by everyone who knew her, and true to her breed she was always there to protect me when she believed threats may have been present. She lives in my heart and I am anxious to see her again if I make it to Heaven, where I know she is now frolicking with Gunnar and others, free of earthly pain and degenerative changes. I love you Gypsy RoseChristopher J WarnerRedlands, CaliforniaJune 4, 2020
6/4/2025 - 6/3/2020Leo was the coolest cat. He was Top Cat in our house. The other cats loved him. He was my son, Michael’s, best friend. Even when he was in his last precious moments he would purr when Michael would be near him. We miss him sooo much. We were glad to be able to let him go at home peacefully, gently, comfortably in Michael’s lap.Ginny BCitrus Heights, CaliforniaJune 4, 2020
1/12/2006 - 5/31/2020I knew when I first held Jack at 8 weeks old in the palm of my hand that we were going to embark on an amazing journey together. Jack was a rescue. He was taken from his mother way too early and attached to me instantly. He never left my side and would cry the minute I left him. He was often referred to as my “shadow”. My love for him goes beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. He’s been with me through thick and thin. He’s gotten me through the most difficult times in my life. If anyone knows me, they know that I lived for this dog. You can’t put a price on the unconditional love from an animal. I’m forever grateful for him. Words can’t express the pain I feel for letting him go. However, I’m at peace knowing I gave him a great life. I know we will meet again. And I’m thankful that I have my mom to watch over him in heaven. Run free and wild my sweet boy. You are and will always be my soulmate. Mama loves you. You will never be replaced. I look forward to seeing you in my dreams.Andrea MisiewiczBedminster, New JerseyJune 4, 2020
12/1/2005 - 6/2/2020My sweet stubborn girl has been in my life since I was 19. We have made so moves, meet so many people, and have grow and changed so much together over the years. She has been my side kick for over 15 years no matter where I would go I knew that she would be right besides me or waiting for me every time I came home. There are not words to describe how much I will miss her and how she has changed my life and how I know that I sure will never forget her. My sweet girl I will forever love you! I sure hope wherever you are, you are happy running a muck.❤️💗Megan BDenver, ColoradoJune 4, 2020
12/1/2020 - 5/11/202012/1/12 was our gotcha date that forever changed our lives. We had never owned a dog before so we went to a rescue group and fell in love with the most loveable dog there ever was. He was found on the street and clearly by his manner had been abused. That did not stop him from loving you. I never realized what an impact that unconditional love of a dog could have on me. There is a whole in my heart and a whole in our family. I miss his thumping tail, his greeting at the door (even if you only were outside for a minute) , his grumbling to the mailman and the UPS drivers. If he saw them in the street they were his friends but come to the house he was going to give them what for! We are taking care of clearing the yard of the rabbits and squirrels for you! He got shafted again when he was diagnosed with a high grade mast cell tumor and his time with us was cut short. I certainly wasn’t ready. I hope the 7.5 yrs with us makes up for the rough times you had. His dad and I are completely lost. Thank you Dr Liz and Lap of Love. Eli was scared to death of the vet and there was no way I could bring him there. What a wonderful service you providePatty KortaTonawanda, New YorkJune 4, 2020
5/10/2006 - 5/28/2020We will never forget you Toby. You were my best friend and a huge part of our family. It’s been almost a week since you got your Angel Wings, and we’re still adjusting. We miss seeing you relaxing comfortably in your bed, taking you outside, and the sound of your nails on the floor when you walked.

I want to thank you for coming into our lives. Even though I rescued you, you definitely returned the favor many times over. Thank you for adjusting to the additions to the family, which took some attention from you. Thank you for teaching us about our animal friends, about life’s ups and downs, and about unconditional love. Thank you for the extra time, as we thought in February that you couldn’t continue. You perked up and lasted another 4 months. When the time finally did come, we all knew it was the “right time”, including you. Thank you for being you, as there was not another dog that comes close.

I tried my best to give you the best life possible, and I believe you had that. You didn’t need much more than a comfortable place to sleep (our bed), a few toys, many walks, some loving, and of course plenty of food and treats!

I wish you could have lived forever, but you were needed somewhere else. You’re in a better place now with no more pain or confusion. We are sure you are happy and free. Say hi from us to Grandma, Vinnie and Stretch, and all of the others with you and watching over you. We will never forget you Toby and what you brought to our lives. Rest in peace buddy.

Ember Blaze Nolan
5/1/2010 - 5/31/2020Ember was adopted from Last Hope Animal Shelter on Long Island at approximate age of 3 years old. He was shy and didn't know how to run in a backyard, fetch a stick or ball. He grew with our family as the first family dog and he was warm and welcoming when each family member came home. He loved to walk around his big backyard, and lay in the shade under a tree. He loved to be close by my feet when working on computer. He was a good pet and family member. He taught our children the deep love and loyalty of a dog, and they each found their own pets when they moved out. Ember loved to play with his cousins dogs, Leo and Oakley in the yard, and he loved to bark and softly growl at his daddy when he came home in uniform. Ember will always be cherished and his memories will live on in all of us. We were grateful to be with Ember so peacefully as his time came to let him go. We did not want his pain to take him down. Ember we loved you long and hard and there is emptiness in our hearts for you. 😢❤😢❤😢❤🐕❤❤Julianne Nolanwest Babylon, New YorkJune 3, 2020
