Dakota
9/14/2004 - 10/12/2019It was hard to let you go Dakota but we know you are in a better place. You gave us a lifetime of fun and memories. You will forever be in our hearts.Tonya WashingtonSandy Springs, GeorgiaOctober 21, 2019
Cooper
3/15/2019 - 10/18/2019Cooper became my beloved pet at 9 mos old. He was a terror. Everything the previous owner said he didn't do he did and did and did. He was such a challenge. I understand now that Pomeranian and Yorkie are the hardest breeds to train. Well he was BOTH! Wow. But what a love he was. Such a personality. He would run up on my chest when I was lying down and cock his head back and forth as if to say, I'm here! Aren't I cute? Don't you want to play.? Such a love. When Cooper first came to me he had very little trust. He had separation anxiety and he eliminated himself everywhere. After 3 years I was able to eliminate some of his fears. He finally learned to potty outside! YEAH! He was a delight. He and my other dog Rose, a yellow lab, began to play together. Cooper always won because he was fierce. He never gave up. Rose is 80 lbs. She was so gentle with him. It was amazing to watch. I miss him so much. His little face fit in my hands and he loved for me to hold it and massage his face. He loved his back rubbed and he would raise his chin up like he was going to howl but he never did. He was first in everything. I don't know what I will do without his busy body racing around tapping my heals to tell me which way to go. I just know I will be lost! I am already.Susan LyonAntelope, CaliforniaOctober 21, 2019
Molly
11/1/2019 - 10/14/2019My favorite memories are just of us cuddling or messing around together.Riley OlsonLombard, IllinoisOctober 21, 2019
Boots (bootsy)
5/1/2006 - 10/19/2019Dearest Bootsy,
Our world has a great void in it since you have passed. You are no longer there to greet us at the door, or to be underfoot while we are trying to accomplish tasks (especially food related tasks), or to demand being in our laps at all times that we are sitting. You were so gentle and had so much love to give. I miss your giant purr and your song and dance when we went to feed you. You will be forever in our hearts and we miss you dearly.

Sandy
7/15/2004 - 10/17/2019After 14 years of happiness and joy, we lost our sweet girl dog, Sandy Thursday October 17 to cancer. Our lives forever changed when she came into our lives after being rescued from the street in Plaza Midwood. She’s always been there for us with love and her sweet snuggles. She was so pretty. A special thank you to Lap of Love and Dr Jennifer Walters who showed compassion and love as we let our girl go here in our home. She was in her favorite spot in the living room in her bed with her pillow, she always loved pillows. John and I held her and gave her kisses as she crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
We are heartbroken and there will forever be a huge hole in our lives and heart She is at peace now.
We love you Sandy Girl❤️

Tahoe
10/19/2005 - 10/19/2019It is with a very heavy heart that I announce that our Labrador Retriever “Tahoe” has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Tahoe truly lived a charmed life of just over 14 years and now she can join her “sister” and partner in crime and mischief “Sahara” our German Shepherd who left us almost two years ago.

When Tahoe first joined our family as a puppy she was warmly greeted by Sahara who was 1.5 years old. Sahara soon taught Tahoe all of the tricks of living in the woods as at the time we lived on the foothills of Mt Hood in Zigzag, Oregon. Squirrels were the number one prey for those two.

When she was only 8 months old I had just finished BBQ’ing a 5lb whole chicken. I had it cooling off on the cutting board in the kitchen and upon passing by I noticed it was missing. When I walked into the kitchen I saw the cutting board on the floor and a young Lab looking at me with a wing in her mouth. She promptly swallowed it and there was not a speck of evidence left. She ate the whole chicken carcass and all!

Throughout the many camping trips and fishing and hunting adventures Tahoe was truly a sportsman’s dog. One time Sahara, Tahoe and I were in my old Jeep and were checking out hunting areas. I crawled up this old logging road for about a half an hour checking things out. When I reached the top I looked back and Tahoe was nowhere to be found. The back of my jeep was empty. It was just Sahara and myself (Sahara looked as startled as I was that she wasn’t there). I drove back down the road asking people that I passed if they had seen a Lab. Finally after going about three miles I got out my binoculars and spotted a black dot moving around in a river another half mile down the road. When I got there Tahoe looked up and calmly jumped back into the Jeep all soaking wet after having spent the last 45 minutes swimming in a portion of Hood River.

Besides retrieving ducks, one of her most favorite things to do was to go crabbing or crawfishing with me. As soon as I would approach the buoy that was floating on the end of the trap she would leap off the bow of the boat and retrieve it for me. The one problem I occasionally had was that I was usually crabbing during Salmon season and the seals and sea lions would also be in the bay. Tahoe would try and go play with them at times thinking they were her friends.

Once while on a road trip with my oldest daughter Mikayla as she was visiting prospective colleges to attend we stopped at Montana State in Bozeman, MT. Just as they were telling the prospective students about their famed ducks on campus and the fines that are issued if somebody harms one, Tahoe slips out of the motorhome and then I’m heard yelling “Tahoe leave those ducks alone” as she is running towards her prey. Fortunately I caught her but I think at that point Mikayla immediately eliminated Montana State as an option and tuned out the rest of the campus tour that day.

Another time when I was in Florida visiting my mom I had Mikayla in charge of watching the dogs. A freak situation that caused a gap in my fence (that I’m pretty sure happened as the results of Mikayla’s dog Molly who was an escape artist) resulted in Tahoe going missing. Kayla was very upset and called me at around 2:00 AM Eastern Time. Long story short after face book posts and looking on Craigslist Tahoe was eventually found. When Kayla went to pick her up she found that she was being treated like a queen. They fed her pizza and she even slept with them in their bed. I’m pretty sure Kayla took Tahoe back over to their house a couple of times for visitation because their kids enjoyed her so much.

Tahoe spent the last two years of her life living in Henderson, NV. She would sunbathe daily and up until recently would swim in the pool every day, with nine to ten swims daily not being uncommon. She recently celebrated her 14th birthday (one month ago to the day) but unfortunately that was to be her last.

Today Tahoe enjoyed her last meal one that I am proud to say was chocked full of all of her favorites (livers, chicken hearts, gizzards, squirrel, duck, chicken, bacon, beef steak, hamburger, cheese, select sausages, French fries as well as some whipped cream for dessert). Yes she eagerly munched it down. I can honestly say from the time she entered our life as a puppy up to and including today she never once missed a meal.

Today we enjoyed our last meal and beer together.

Run free Tahoe! You are now free of all your pain. I’m sure Sahara will greet you and show you around just like she did when you first joined our family.

RIP Tahoe!!! You will be missed.

Levi
4/21/2007 - 10/18/2019Levi had a gentle spirit and was loved by all the family, especially the grandchildren. He never once growled or reacted aggressively to the many ear and tail pullings, eye pokings or other rough housing from all 5 grandchildren. He was our bed partner from the time he was a pup until the very end. At first we had our grand dog Bailey, a medium sized dog along with our new pup Levi in bed with us. As that pup began to grow, Naomi and I realized our queen bed just wasn’t quiet accommodating enough so we moved up to a king. But even with the extra room, Levi had to be right next to one of us and would swap back and forth all night long. He was the perfect dog except for his constant shedding. He was our loyal friend and constant companion for 12 years. The whole family will miss you buddy.Roger MoteNorth Augusta, South CarolinaOctober 20, 2019
Ciara
10/7/2019Goodbye my Sweet Ciara:

for all the love you have reflected and given and the joy and happiness you have shared these last 14 years.
It is selfish of me to try and hold on to you .
It is time for you to be without pain.
You have been a part of my heart.
You leave with paw prints on my heart.

Rickie
6/26/2006 - 10/17/2019Our hearts are broken. We miss you more than words can say. You were the best part of our family and we will always love you. I hope you found Luke at the rainbow bridge and the two of you will be together. Until we meet again Rickie.Fonna BorisHolmdel, New JerseyOctober 20, 2019
Bandit
8/20/2007 - 10/11/2019Bandit was literally my shadow. No matter where I went he was never more than 2 feet away. He laid in the bathroom while I showered and waited for me to go to bed every night before he went. 12 years with Bandit was no where near enough time. I miss him everyday. He had his annoying moments like barking nonstop to come back in the house when he’d only been out for 2 minutes and he can see me coming to open the sliding doors but yet he would bark and bark lol I wish I could hear that now. I know Bandit has a good life. He was loved and cherished down to his last moments. . for him toBobbi NellonsRiverview, FloridaOctober 20, 2019
