Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
12/2/2015 - 3/30/2015She was born on December 2, 2000, I became her dad on February 24, 2001, a day before my 34th birthday. I remember it like yesterday... She didn't take well to the drive from southern Kentucky to Georgetown, Kentucky and got sicker... than a dog. I was at a point in my life where l needed her and based on the kennel where she was born, she needed me. I researched her breed and was convinced it was the one for me. I got this one right! Unfortunately she was born in a puppy mill and while I don't endorse them, I would not have traded her for anything in the world!

She was a handful at first (she's a terrier) but we bonded quickly and it became OUR bed, couch and backyard within the first week. She was always up for a game of fetch, LOVED being sprayed by the water hose, would go on the longest walks with me and not tire, loved going for a ride in the car and sticking her head out the window, never met a stranger, was good with other dogs, and best of all, she loved sitting in my lap. She was my girl! My baby! Would never let me out of her sight and would follow me around everywhere I went. If I was cutting grass and she couldn't see me... instant cry baby!

April 9, 2005, along comes this other little girl... oh oh! After 4 years of being the one and only, she now had competition for my attention and fortunately for me this new little girl understood her place in the Alpha, Beta chain of command. She was not the top Bitch in the household. Overall, the two got along great but it wasn't without a fight here and there along with some blood and missing teeth. They are terriers afterall! And they are females! The main thing is I felt like she needed companionship while I was away at work.
14 years... that's how long Pretty Miss Cadi Rhawn, my beautiful Welsh Terrier has been there to greet me when I get home. How many years she has loved me when I needed love. Made me realize that everything was gonna be OK even if I thought they weren't. She has done way more for me than I could have ever done for her, all I did was feed her, house her, and show her a little bit of love... OK a lot of love!

3/30/15 I had to do something for her. I had to make the decision that I had been dreading since February 24, 2001. I had to let her go, she had suffered enough. Her body was tired and old and she was ready. People have said dogs will let you know. She did... she's was ready. While it killed me inside I knew it was the right thing to do. Tears of sadness flowed all day and there is still a whole in my heart. I can't help it. And I can tell Lola Sue Cadi's Pal is grieving as well. She knows what is going on.

I love and will dearly miss my Cadi Pie... but it's the right thing to do.

5/23/2003 - 3/29/2015Barkley was my first love. He was with me through thick and thin and was the best boy a girl could ask for. I don't know how I will ever get over his passing; the grief is overwhelming. I will continue to share his memory so he can live on forever. I love you, Barkley. I cherish every memory we created together.JoAnna PomerantzDurham, North CarolinaApril 1, 2015

3/30/2015Tenaya (right side) and Roxy (left side) were the best dogs anyone could have ever wanted. They came to us as rescues and left us cradled in our arms after being spoiled for years. May they rest in peace and comfort.David and Kathi WhiteVentura, CaliforniaMarch 31, 2015
4/1/1999 - 3/26/2015I miss my sweet little purring machine. If you could read, I'd tell you that "You'll always have a special spot next to me on the pillow."Kelly CarvallisGainesville, FloridaMarch 31, 2015
1/24/2000 - 3/23/2015This past week we said goodbye to our beloved buddy Rex. For the last 15 years Rex was an integral part of our family. Rex was a faithful companion that simply just wanted to be loved. You could always count on him being by your side whether you were having a good day or a bad day. Even though Rex is no longer with us he will not be forgotten as his memory will always stay with our family and friends that remember all the joy that he brought us.

We will miss you buddy!

Rest in peace.

Things he has survived thru:
~Being abandoned
~Maced close range by postman (twice!)
~Torn ACL surgery & knee reconstruction

~A whole 9x13 pan of double chocolate brownies
~An entire mushroom brownie

~Licked up a full bottle of wine after knocking it off the counter & shattering it to pieces
~Countless other "never to be eaten by a dog" (or person for that matter) objects along the way in life!

3/28/2015Some of us are privileged to come across in life a special being, that has the ability to light up a room just by their presence, has the ability to make us want to be better people and gives us a sense of calm and warmth. Their soul, the purest kind, is gentle and good, beautiful and sincere, they have an inner happiness and sense of contentment. They never worry about the small stuff and experience great joy and appreciation for every early morning walk and ever splendid sunset….. they teach us to stop and look at what we have and savor what’s most important….I had the honor of meeting one of these beings…. Of knowing her and learning from her. In her short life, she brought so much joy to those around her, behind her was always a trail of laughter… sometimes water too. This special being happened to be an incredible chocolate lab, Bacci. Named for the chocolate, she was sweet and gentle inside out, she loved the water, could entertain herself much to the disdain of the koi fish in the pond and would find a way to swim even if the safety pool net was up. Most of all though she loved her family, and wanted nothing more than to be in some kind of physical contact with her parents. Her love was pure and unconditional. Bacci in your 2 years you had more impact on your family than most people achieve in a lifetime. You were taken from your family prematurely….leaving broken hearts and buckets of tears and questions….You were too good for this world and we blessed and privileged to have known you…. You were a “chocolate princess”, the “ baby of the family”. We will strive everyday to stop and savor the world around me the way you did, and we will learn from you that above all, our family is the most important and the loves of our lives. Bacci, no words can express how much you are missed, how empty the house is, how your lagoon and your garden feel lesser and incomplete now but every time we see something beautiful in the world around us, we will think of you…thank you sweet Chocolate Princess.Cape Town, VirginiaMarch 30, 2015

4/10/2015 - 3/19/2015Foos it was the hardest thing ever to have you cross the rainbow bridge, but we know you are at a better place and no more discomfort for the girl who never missed a trick. You lovingly filled the gap we had as empty nesters and we could give you undivided attention and love.
It has been very quiet here and we will miss you forever. You will always have a special place in our hearts.
Love always,
Etta and Gary Shane
