Buddy
1/1/2000 - 7/3/2015Dear Friend (Buddy),

You came into our lives out of nowhere and filled our hearts with joy. Once you found us you never left our side. You knew you had found a loving home and displayed such loyalty and companionship.It is hard to put into words how you completed our lives.

It was such a joy to spoil you and take you on trips in the motor home as well as to the cabin and nice resorts. You were always so happy to go on a road trip! You were a protector of us, as well as the cats and the other dog(s). Always so patient to get a morsel and you never complained about anything as long as we were near.

We spoiled you until the end and hoped we would never have to say goodbye. I hope you are free of pain and running like a pup in doggie Heaven. May someday we be reunited and our hearts be made full again.

We miss you so much,
Love Dave & Brandi

10/19/1998 - 7/5/2015Dear Maxine.

While I have been thinking about how hard it was for me to let you go, I realized how hard it has been for you to stay. I can't remember the last time you barked, the last time you wagged your tail, or the last time you greeted me at the door. I miss that girl and know you do too.

When I picked you up on Monday, October 19th, 1998, I made a commitment to keep you forever. We had a tough time with potty training, chewing and eating everything in sight, not distinguishing between the edible and inedible Never mastered that, but I forgive you. And I hope you forgive me. You were my first dog and I really didn't know what I was getting in to or how to raise a dog. Lucky for me, you turned out to be a perfect you.

You're gone now and I am relieved to not see you in pain, hear you pant in discomfort, watch you lose control of your bowels, or hear you cry for help to stand up. My commitment that I made didn't end with your last breath. You were my first and favorite dog. Don't worry, Kaitlen knows. I will keep my commitment and you will live in my heart until my last breath.

Thank you for picking me. Thank you for being a true companion. I'll love you forever and will remember you always.

Your faithful owner, Marjorie

Jacob
1/1/2002 - 7/4/2015Jake,

What a life you lived! I invited you into my family when you were only 8 weeks old, and instead of sleeping in the puppy bed I bought and placed in the passenger seat of my car, you insisted on crawling up behind my neck, on my shoulders for the entire two hour drive to your new home!! I should've known then that your antics would only get better! You made my life worth living. Every moment, the good times and the bad, were surrounded by your stoic face. Thank you for accompanying me on our many hikes, and trips to the ocean (even though I literally had to drag you away from the beach...I sure hope the crowd got a laugh out of it), and our swims in the streams. Those places will never be the same without you. But most importantly, thank you for welcoming my new baby boy home with openness and love. Though I am certain he annoyed you, you accepted him and yes, let him pull on your hair and climb all over you while mommy wasn't watching! Your last day on this earth gave me the greatest laugh of my life: I watched little Steven keep crawling toward you, while you inched away, all the while little Steven cracked himself up, and laughed the biggest laugh of his life.

Jacob, you are my best friend. Forever and always. I miss you so very dearly, but i suppose you are running around already and stealing balls from over the rainbow bridge. I know I can't ask you to wait for me, but I can't wait to get to heaven just to see your beautiful face again. My love for you is immeasurable, and I will carry you in my heart always. Like Dr. Lauren said, forever is not long enough. I would've kept you forever. All your best buddies say to wish you well and safe and fun travels. Morgan A. sent lots of prayers to you last night. She wished she was there to hold you too. Mrs. Robin says to tell you she loves you. She too is heartbroken, but she knows you are not in pain anymore.

So swim forever. Chase all the balls you can. And eat steak and french fries every night! I love you so much.

Until we meet again,

Mommy. .

Brady Klinger-hoos
12/18/2004 - 7/1/2015Brady my beautiful boy, you were a constant companion. You were by my side whenever we were together even when I went to the bathroom. You always kept me in sight. I am so glad the breeder did not want you as a show dog. She would have ruined your beautiful spirit and I would never have experienced the laughs, giggles and love you gave me. I gave you a tennis ball to carry the first time Kim and I took you for a walk. You were 41/2 months old and you took it in your mouth and pranced off with pride. Brady and I trained for Obedience and received our certificate. You were so cute carrying your toys, sticks, gloves you found on walks in the winter, rolling on the grass and rolling in the snow. Blowing bubbles with your nose in the pool trying to grab the rubber ball.

There will never ever be another like you for me.
I love you Brady

Sierra Sans Payne
2/27/1999 - 12/7/2014Sierra Sans Payne, also known as “Sie-girl,” entered my life on May 25, 1999. She was two days away from being 3 months old. The night she died, she was 2 months from being 16 years old. I had always heard dog owners talk about the pain of losing their precious baby. I always knew that it would hurt to lose Sierra, but nothing could have prepared me for her death.

Kidney disease took Sierra’s life. She had fought so incredibly long and hard. She was very strong-willed. She gave everyone the best she had right up to the end. She was playful, prissy, graceful and more intelligent that most humans. There was no one who met her who didn’t fall in love with her. Sierra had been my best friend, my closest family and my heart string longer than any other thing I had known in my life.
During the last couple months of her life, it’s as though I subconsciously knew in my mind that she was dying. In September 2014, we took her to Hilton Head Island to let her take her last walk on the beach. We took tons of pictures of her as though she was a supermodel. To us, she was.

About one week before Thanksgiving, Sierra suffered a seizure. She was immediately rushed to the Animal Emergency Hospital. She was later released, but within a matter of days, she was dehydrated and needed fluids again. After being readmitted, I wanted to talk to the vet about medical treatment options and they were talking with me about making her last days as peaceful as possible. It’s as though my mind would not accept that she was dying. I looked at Sierra that night and promised her I wouldn’t bring her back to the hospital if she would get well enough to come home one last time. She did. At that point, there was no stone I left unturned in an attempt to save her life. But again, she was dehydrated, had started refusing to eat and was having labored breathing. I knew in my heart I had to finally let her go. I had made her a promise and I knew I had to keep my end of the deal. We had been the best partners in life and now she needed me to help her let-go. Sierra had been so amazingly graceful her entire life and I wanted her to pass in grace to her death.

On December 7, 2015, I gave my precious baby to Heaven where I know she is now running, playing, eating and free of pain. I now know the gut-wrenching pain of losing that special pup baby. My life was forever changed the day we first met and the night we said goodbye.
In the comfort of her home, Sierra was cradled and kissed by all of those who she had shared her life and her love. In her pink-and-white dress, she laid on my lap on the pink blanket that I had brought her home in as a puppy. After the medicine was given, at 12:09am, she yawned as if to say, “Ah, rest, finally…”

"Well the sun is surely sinking down
But the moon is slowly rising
So this old world must still be spinning 'round
And I still love you

[Chorus]
So close your eyes
You can close your eyes, it's all right
I don't know no love songs
And I can't sing the blues anymore
But I can sing this song
And you can sing this song
When I'm gone

It won't be long before another day
We gonna have a good time
And no one's gonna take that time away
You can stay as long as you like"

[Chorus]

Buddy
11/10/2001 - 6/27/2015In loving memory of our Buddy. Although this was tough, we know you're in a better place now free from your pain. Your greeting us at the door, "human" sits, necklace playing, back yard fun, jumping on our heads while we sleeping, in our faces while we're eating, sleeping on our backs, throne sitting, "helping" us with everything, and love, will all be missed. You gave us 13 1/2 great years and wish it was a lifetime. You were a very special cat and companion to us and we will never forget you. "My Buddy, my Buddy and me!". Love you Buddy!Chris & Colleen McGeehan/EvesPhiladelphia, PennsylvaniaJuly 2, 2015
Nelson
3/13/2003 - 6/30/2015We were so blessed to have the most loving and loyal dog. He loved everyone. Never met a stranger. When we brought a new dog, Jenny, who had been abused, into our family, he immediately welcomed her as a family member. Throughout the past 2 years that he had diabetes and Addison disease, he was such a trooper in taking shots twice a day and 2 types of eye drops twice a day. Even beginning to loose his eye sight never slowed him down. Our hearts are breaking and we miss him more than words can say. God bless you Nelson boy, Mom and Dad love you!

Sparkey
4/4/2015 - 6/8/2015Sparkey was more than just a dog he was family! As all animals should be he loved everyone and loved to play soccer! You may question that but he really did. Tossed the ball around with his mom while she played soccer, and would pop them with his teeth having a blast! He loved to cuddle and walk with his family. No dog will ever replace the way he cared, and loved for everyone. If you were crying or upset he would always come up to you and lick your tears away all up till the day he passed on! He was a best friend,a lover and family. He is truley missed and will forever be in the Miller and Gomes's family <3Charlene GomesAuburn, WashingtonJuly 1, 2015
Diesel
10/10/2006 - 6/29/2015In loving memory of our dear boy Diesel... you bought much joy and laughter to our heart and we are blessed you chose us as your keepers. We miss your goofy corks, snoring, puppy loves including the wet kisses. You were there through thick and thin with us and even tested your boundaries, you silly kid. We miss your sounds and noises but know your in a better place. Until we meet again Bubba. Kisses...Coby & Heidi BaileyFederal Way, WashingtonJune 30, 2015
Daisy
6/2/2002 - 6/2/2015Today marks 4 weeks since I had to let my Daisy go. I really have not had the emotional strength to write this and tell her story until today. I miss her and still cry for her everyday. She will always be in my heart.Robin RuckerWest Hills, CaliforniaJune 30, 2015
