Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
3/20/2000 - 8/29/2015Reno. You had a good run and we will miss you every much. You loved your porch and always looked forward to your new electric blanket each year. I'm sorry that you had to leave us but I'm thankful that you are at peace. We will be looking for you on patrol and give a thumbs up when we see you. We can't thank you enough for each day you gave us. You were dedicated to your yard and Us. We know inside the house wasn't your favorite spot but we appreciate you following the trail of chicken inside to get out of the ice and snow. Ol Boy we miss you already and will remember you always. Thank you for being a part of our family and most of all for being you. I'll keep your house in the back porch and get your blanket this winter in case you decide to visit your favorite spot. Thank you. Love Mama and Papa.

8/27/2015My dog is everywhere

Look not when I was
For I am not there
My spirit is free
I am everywhere

In the air that you breathe
In the sounds that you hear
Don't cry for me,
for my spirit is near

I'll watch for you
from the other side
I'll be the one running
new friends by my side

Smile at my Memory
Remember in your Heart
This isn't the end

It's a brand new start

I love you Mommy

Ringo Oviedo Aka Puchis
4/16/2005 - 2/28/2015My sweet Ringo, my soul mate, I miss you every day, in the mornings next to my bed; when I get home and you are not there, my heart shrinks in pain. When I’m in the back yard, I can feel your breath; and in my dreams I sense your smell… I will do everything to have you next to me again.
My baby, you are the best gift I could ever receive from someone, you brought happiness and made my life complete. Without you, this home lost his soul and feels empty and mommy and daddy miss you dearly

2/14/1999 - 8/20/2015This is what I wrote and appeared in our community newsletter:
Though some called him Barky, or Scruffy, most residents at Como have met Shaggy. With a distinctive bark, especially for such a small guy; his own special personality, and unique markings, he really was one of a kind. At 16 ½, Shaggy’s old body just couldn’t do it anymore. Shaggy, who once walked all over Como on a regular basis, was escorted by golf cart to the places he once walked. Last Thursday, after sharing in my birthday cake and ice cream, Shaggy was helped over to the Rainbow Bridge in the comfort of his own home. It was my final gift to Shaggy; after receiving so many from him. Thank you Shaggy for oh so many smiles, laughs, and so much love.

This is what I wrote in email to my best friends:

They say that dogs believe their jobs are to keep us happy.
If that is the case, Shaggy did his job with flying colors.

I have been so fortunate to have had 5 dogs now in my life,
and that for that stage in my life, each was the perfect dog for me.

Shaggy is not different. He walked me all over Como when
he first arrived, and helped me drop much unneeded weight.
He howled over his joy of waking up with John every morning.
He had a bounce in his step that made his ears bounce too.
Was hard not to smile when you saw Shaggy. And, though already
an old man, Shaggy stuck around for 3+ years after John passed.
He knew I needed him to ease the pain and move on.

At 16 1/2, Shaggy let me know it was time by not eating. He
waited until Kylila arrived to join her 2 children.
In the comfort of our home, in my arms, Shaggy took his last
breath. He then went over the Rainbow Bridge to join John, Grace,
and Jasper.

I’m not sad for Shaggy.
I know he is running and jumping, and barking again.
I sure do miss his physical presence.
And I know I will for a long time to come.

I have attached the tribute to Shaggy that is in our community
newsletter, and the pic too.

Thanks for indulging me in such a long email and attachments too.
With a heavy heart, and tears flowing

2/15/2002 - 8/26/2015For Bella from a poem by E. E. Cummings-

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
here is the root of the root
and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart
i carry it in my heart

12/31/1997 - 8/24/2015Bogie,

You were my number one guy. My best friend. My rock. You were always here for me. I couldn't possibly love you anymore than I do. We had 18 years together and forever would not have been long enough. We found each other and I am grateful for all the time we had to spend together. It doesn't make me miss you any less. You have always been here and now that you are gone, I feel lost.

3/14/2015 - 8/20/2015Today Declan and I said goodbye to our beloved Annie-cat. I adopted them both in the summer of 2003 and for 12 years they were wonderful companions to me and to one another. Annie was diagnosed with a rapidly-growing tumor in her jaw just a few weeks ago and given immediate palliative care by her regular vets at North Seattle Veterinary Clinic.

For a few more weeks, she was a sleepy but content version of her usual sunny self. Sadly, she fell into a final decline a few days ago and I'd promised her years ago I would never let her linger in pain.

I thank their original foster mother Leslie from Forgotten Felines in Shoreline, who nurtured Annie through her first few weeks on earth and to Dr. Jason from Seattle's Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice, Inc. who eased her way out today as she rested on her favorite clawed-up rocking chair with Declan and her human by her side. Dr. Jason was about to leave when Declan wanted a final look at Annie and he was kind enough to unwrap her so Dec could give her a final cheek-lick. Saying goodbye in this was has seemed to help him greatly this last week.
