Deuce
9/1/2009 - 9/17/2020My Boy.

I don’t know where to begin. I suppose I start with what matters most: I love you. There’s a point where a dog stops being a pet. There is no master. You were never mine in that regard. But we’ve always had each other. Never my pet. You were so much more. You were my loyal companion. Always with me. Always you and me against the world. We both came from something. We both had baggage. You were dumped on the mean streets of East St. Louis, the smallest of your cruel pack, who wouldn’t let you eat. You were emaciated. You had ring worm, heart worm, homeless people threw bottles at you, shot at you. You were scared and alone. But you survived.

Me? I had my own run, my own challenges, my own turns of fate, my own choices. But. We both escaped unhappy situations and started over. Started fresh. Together. We pushed forward into this crazy, unknown world. You, always by my side. From the moment my future ex-wife let me have you, you and I blazed our own trail, together. Sure, people entered our lives. Dogs joined our pack. Within a few years, there was a Daisy. And she’s the most precious thing. But, the friends, the romance, the pupper pack, the Scout and Gus…Even with Princess Daisy May (be crazy), it’s still always been you and me, against the world.

We had a ways to go when we first started our lives together. You were scared, and so was I. But we figured it out. You became my rock. My anchor. And I took care of you. You were always by my side. I was always within your line of sight. Everything I’ve experienced, I experienced with you. It’s always been you and me, against the world. Daisy is her own pup. She goes where she goes. When she’s ready for bed, she goes to bed, but not you. It could be 8:30 PM, or 4:30 AM, you didn’t go to bed until I went to bed. We have always been together, side by side for every single moment. When you slept, I slept. You’ve never left my side.

We’ve been through it all together, I can’t imagine living without you. I will, I just don’t know how. We grew together. We went gray together. We’ve been through everything together. And I don’t know what Daisy will do. You’ve always looked out for her. That time I let you and a six week old puppy out, went inside, fell asleep on the couch as it began to rain…When I woke up and ran outside to let you guys in, there you were, standing over here, shielding her from the rain. When the gate was left open and Daisy bolted, you went with her, and brought her home.

You have always been the happiest, sweetest, most easy like a Sunday morning pup. No matter my life, simply looking at you, you smiling at me, it has always been okay. Your eyes looked deep into my soul, and showed me yours. Deeply, we saw one another, loved one another, looked out for one another.

I feel so alone without you, even with my friends, my family, my Daisy…Because it has always been you and me against the world. There’s a point where a dog stops being a pet and becomes something more. More than a loyal companion, even. You are that. You aren’t my pet or companion, you’re my best friend. That’s it. Right there. You’re my very best friend. I will always be with you, and you will always be with me. I love you, Deuce. You’re my best friend. I love you.

Cheese
7/19/2010 - 9/16/2020Cheese, we are so glad you picked us to be your family. In one short year together you stole our hearts. You were the sweetest little snuggle bug, and I loved our routine together. I don't know what your life was like before you picked us, but we fell in love with your sweet meows. It was so cute how you loved your blankie and played with your feather. We will always have you in our hearts forever. It is so hard to see your pawprints and not hear your meows, and to never go "night-night" together ever again. I will miss my little work-from-home supervisor, watching my every move on the computer, and telling me when its time for lunch, dinner and bed time. What will I do without you. Daddy and I miss you so so much little bug.Lisa DykstraBoca Raton, FloridaSeptember 18, 2020

Frisco
12/7/2010 - 9/15/2020Frisco was a sweet, loving dog who cared and connected with every person and animal she knew. She gave herself through therapy for patients in hospice and in the hospital. She was a strong girl who endured a life of struggle, but always showed her love and grace to everyone. Her struggles through lymphoma, back surgery, two heart conditions, and ehrlichia never made her stop being her loving self. She has left a legacy of love with her pack. Her three siblings miss her but know she is in a wonderful place waiting to great us all when we come to see her in heaven.Doreen FischettiEdgewater, MarylandSeptember 17, 2020

Nina
7/13/2011 - 9/15/2020Nina was the most loving sweetest baby dog even made best friends with the rescue kitten I brought home seven years ago. She was also so smart. We loved to balance treats on her nose and have her wait a few seconds before she'd toss them in the air and catch them in her mouth. My husband could also stack cheezits on her nose lol she was so good at listening. She was always by my side or under my legs in bed and made each day a little brighter. She loved getting in the pool and sitting on the first step when it was hot, laying in the sunbeams, and playing tug of war. Every time we would go in the backyard she'd bring us her rope. She was fiercely protective even when dad would tickle or play wrestle with me or the kids she would growl at him to make sure we were OK. When she was diagnosed with cancer she never let it stop her from showing us the same love and affection. She would still come sit at my feet at dinner time because she knew I would always share with her and she never stopped climbing the stairs to sleep with us at night. She could no longer jump on the bed but slept right next to me. She took part of me with her. I'm so grateful I got to be her dog mom.Lori AllenVacaville, CaliforniaSeptember 17, 2020
