Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
11/25/2015 - 8/22/2015joe was always a good dog, he was also so could tell when he wanted to mess with you (run away with his toy in his mouth as you walk up to grab it) by the look in his eyes. He loved just about everything from chasing bees around the yard, to just hanging out, watching TV. He was pretty spoiled, he got to sleep on the bed and had his own pillow next to ours! His birthday dinner was whatever we had for Thanksgiving, because he was born on thanks giving :) he was always such a strong, fast dog....but gentle enough to be around a toddler, and even sometimes would get beat up by his older cat friend ;) who we know still misses him. He quickly became a member of our family, and he will always be considered a part of it. He probably always thought he needed us, but it was us who needed him in so many ways. There will be other dogs, but they will have some big shoes to fill, and will have to earn the respect from everyone that our Jobie built and MORE than earned over the years. We are all going to miss you, but feel that you'll be around in some way. We al love you very much.Michael VikeBuurien, WashingtonOctober 2, 2015

The Rainbows Bridge Poem Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

4/16/2015 - 9/5/2015Gemini was my best friend, baby, partner in crime and such an important part of me. She was with me through everything and her love for me is unsurpassed. All who met her loved her, even those who did not like dogs. So loving, wise and such a big personality in a such a small package. I wish her peace in her passing and a whole new life. Rest in peace Gemini. You are my angel and I loved you more than anyone on this earth. I hope you felt no pain and you weren't scared. You brought so much joy to so many people and were the most special dog to ever exist. You gave so much and are loved so much. I will celebrate your life until I see you again. I love you Gemi.Elizabeth KennerLos Angeles, CaliforniaOctober 2, 2015
9/17/2015Ruby was such a sweet girl and was a beloved member of our family for almost 16 years. She was my third child, and I will miss her dearly. Dr Dana took great care of sweet Ruby, and her passing was very peaceful.

Ruby was her moms favorite because she was always the one who fed and cuddled with her, but one of my favorite memories of her in her more active years was retrieving the ball. Most of the she didn't bring it back. She was fiercely independent and will be missed by us all

7/4/2015 - 9/28/2015To our Dear Sweet Betty,

12 years ago you came into my life at 6 weeks old. You have provided me, your other Mom and countless others with unconditional love, pure unadulterated happiness and years of joy. Our lives will be empty without you. May you have lots of flips, pounds of bacon, unlimited swimming pools and oceans, a real life polar bear, a large fan to keep you safe in thunderstorms and car rides with the top down. We love you and miss you more than you will ever know. May you learn the Art Of Dancing In The Rain.

Your Moms

9/28/1998 - 9/24/2015Lucky, we were so excited when we found you at the pound. Your adorable face melted our hearts. On September 28, 1999 we adopted you into our family and our lives became intertwined forever. We were told that you were one to two years old.
For over seventeen years you blessed this earth and brought smiles to so many.
Everywhere we walked people had to stop and talk to you – everyone loved Lucky!

But we loved you the most and we were the luckiest of all because we had you with us every moment of every day. Our sweet Lucky…. you brought so much love and joy and fun into our lives. This house is too quiet without you.
We all miss you so much!

Dr. Christine was so wonderful to help us through our last moments with you.
It was so peaceful and calm. We are so glad that you are now free of lymphoma and the aches of old age.

Lucky, you were a very special dog. You gave us so much companionship and love through the years that we feel very blessed. We are so proud of you for growing old so gracefully and are thankful that you could be with us for so many years.

Although we are so sad that you are not with us anymore in this world, we know that you are now happy and healthy. We will see you again and it will be a joyous day!

Lucky, you will forever be in our hearts.

Black Bart Swartz
9/9/2015Black Bart was a unique little man. Loved to join the men for a beer, curl up with mommy and play/torment his buddy Evey. He also was able to wake mommy up at night when her insulin levels dropped. Adopted from the ARL in Feb. 2006, he brought joy to our small apartment with his antics, protection of Evey (eventhough she would occasionally kick his butt) and obsession with ham, bacon, milk, tuna and black diamond steaks. As an indoor cat, his last day was spent outside in the sun roaming around and catching a vole.

We love you and miss you Bart.

Jewel (juju)
9/1/2015 - 9/29/2015My Big ol' Red dog I will miss so much. She loved her doggy treats, sleeping with a box fan at night, and all of her blankies. JuJu was a very good girl who loved telling me when it was time to eat or go outside. She was very friendly, loving, and beautiful. She loved being outside, but preferred sitting on the couch watching movies with me. JuJu was so afraid of thunder that she cleverly turned my walk-in closet into her own private "storm shelter" where she felt safe.Sue HarrisJacksonville, FloridaSeptember 30, 2015
9/28/2015I am so heart broken that I've lost you. The house is so empty without you. Everyone knew you were a rescue but you were truly the one who rescued me. Rest in peace.....Denise BradeenClifton, New JerseySeptember 30, 2015
