Cowboy
5/17/2002 - 10/16/2015Cowboy was more than a pet. We were sure that he was part human. If you has a glass with ice in it and he heard the ice rattling in the glass or heard you chewing on the ice he wanted it. There were times when we would have to get him his own bowl with ice in it because he couldn't get enough of yours. If he was in your way all you have to say was beep beep and he would move out of the way.

We would come home from work some days and find Cowboy standing on the window sill on all fours. The window sill was only 6 inches wide, but he was standing on it. He would climb up on the back of the sofa and onto the sill.

Every night when we went to bed Cowboy would start out sleeping under our bed. Eventually during the night he would finally wander to his own bedroom. Yes, Cowboy had his own bedroom for the last 7 years.

Cowboy was my lap dog. If I laid on the sofa with a blanket, Cowboy was curled up behind my knees under the blanket.

We could see that Cowboy was slowing down. He didn't want you to throw the ball 100 times and retrieve it with a smile on his adorable face. He used to run around the back yard on the scent of a squirrel for hours on end. It was becoming only a bark now and then.

Cowboy will be in our hearts forever. Miss you!

Abby
12/16/1999 - 9/22/2015Abby, my dear sweet Abby. It's hard to believe that you've been gone four weeks. You sweet smiling face is forever etched in my memory. The fun times we shared will live on forever in my heart. You taught me so many things during our time together...unconditional love, patience (except at meal time), forgiveness, loyalty & so on. You will forever be in my heart!!!Tara AkerJamestown, North CarolinaOctober 20, 2015
Tucker
1/27/2000 - 10/4/2015In memory of our Tuckerpoo!

January 27th, 2000 - October 4th, 2015

We were delighted to have been owned by Tucker all these years!
Our handsome Tucker was sweet, friendly, funny, mischievous, and not at all modest about his many talents—a bragger! There are kazillions of stories to share---here are a few highlights!

He loved to steal towels from the laundry nightly and run through the house - let the chase begin! He played upside down catch with his tennis ball. He held the ball in his paws high above his head and then let go ---personal best, 3 in a row. It’s hard to play catch without opposable thumbs! Once I was sprawled on the couch –sick with a bad cold--Tucker pulled on my fingers draped over the back of the couch – I did not respond with play, so he zipped to the front of the couch and pulled the bed pillow from under my head in one smooth, quick jerk. He was all about fun—empathy was not his strong suit!

He loved going on walks and visiting all his friends in the neighborhood and in the office park. Since Ken’s retirement, Tucker lobbied almost every day to trot across the street and up the neighbor’s long drive. As soon as we knocked on the door, his tail wagged with enthusiasm, as he awaited his invite to step inside. There was no food, no dog, it was simply about a visit with his friends.

He was the most hysterical guy we could ever imagine…he teased us constantly and we teased him—he actually seemed to get the jokes! Once following a bad GI infection—we made our way back to weekend visits at the dogpark. As we walked around w/ friends I pursed my lips together and made the raspberries sound..he shot forward, and checked his derriere a few times to be sure he was okay. Then he looked at me—with the “I get it look” which we saw often when we teased him. You could almost see him hit his paw to his forward—the expression was --“gees, you got me again—just you wait!” We kind of kept score.

When we entered the dog park gate on weekends—people would call his name from all around—My favorite was the cute little French lady’s Tuckierre, Tuckierre! We talked about him being like Norm in Cheers—where everyone knew his name!

Despite his narcissism – the "I'm fabulous and I know it" attitude,Tucker's amazing sense of humor, warm poodle hugs and outrageous personality made him that once-in-a-lifetime dog who will always be missed and never forgotten!

Tucker, we heard your request one last time to let others know that you were truly the greatest—a legend in your own mind---and ours—and it was a pleasure to be owned by you!

Ranger Meara
4/4/2015 - 10/19/2015From the moment I picked up my puppy and he vomited in my backseat on the ride home, I was in love. For 91/2 years I had the most amazing dog who loved me every day. He was my shadow, everywhere I went he was with me. He would watch my children as they got on and off the school bus and would announce my husbands arrival home from work with vigorous barking. I always felt safe in my home and while on walks when with my handsome escort. So many times people would stop and comment on what a "good looking" dog I had. I was truly blessed with a steadfast companion until the very end. My family will always remember him and miss him everyday. For me, I will continue to mourn his loss and will keep his memory with me always.Brook MearaCrestwood, MissouriOctober 20, 2015

1/17/2002 - 10/13/2015Thank you for giving us so much joy over the years. You will never be forgotten and I know now that you finally caught that elusive squirrel. With much love.Brad YazellFort Lauderdale, FloridaOctober 20, 2015
Maggie May
3/19/2005 - 10/19/2015Maggie was my faithful and constant companion for nearly 11 years. I brought her home from the Weimaraner breeder when she was 6 weeks old. She was an adorable puppy, her fur felt like velvet. I spoiled her too much! Every one said I was Maggie's pet. But that was ok with me. Maggie always followed me around, She loved to ride in the car and go for walks. She was a smart dog who was easily trained. Maggie loved stuffed animals, and carried them with her most of the day. She usually took her favorite animal to bed with her. Maggie's passing has left a big hole in my heart. I will miss her terribly, as will as the rest of our family.Carolyn RamseyMarietta, GeorgiaOctober 20, 2015
Brian
2/10/2002 - 10/16/2015Brian was our sweet, playful, beautiful boy. He joined our family in the summer of 2004. Brian made fast friends with other dogs and loved meeting new humans, he would often vocalize his social wishes on walks (as if to say "Guys...can I meet that dog/human over there pleeeeeease?"). Brian could be a goofy playmate and a silent companion. He absolutely loved going to the beach, jumping and running with pure joy, and just hanging out in our back yard, romping and sniffing the perimeter. When it became clear that his degenerative myelopathy was causing his quality of life to slip away, we were determined to not let him suffer. The pain of his loss has been felt by family, friends, and even former neighbors. We miss him terribly but are cherishing all of the memories and time spent with our sweet hound Brian.Patrick McGrawRenton, WashingtonOctober 19, 2015
Charmin
12/1/1996 - 10/18/2015To my dear Charmin,

I am truly devastated by your loss. While you were so tiny, you were a tremendous presence and part of the family. My heart bleeds with your loss. The hardest moments that haunt me were watching you drift away and take your last breaths. I have solace in knowing you are still close as we have buried you in the yard so we can visit you every day. You will remain in our hearts forever and we hope you are now in heaven...happy, healthy, able to hear and comfortably walk, and looking down on your family with a smile. We love and miss you dearly.

Ashley
9/6/1999 - 10/16/2015Dear Ashley ~ You were just a little tiny puppy when we met you and fell in love. Because of your soft, black fur the kids, then 4 and 6, decided you were like ashes which quickly transformed into Ashley. We soon realized your body size was no indication of the size of your sweet and adventurous heart and spirit. You wanted to be involved in everything we as a family were doing. You were a true family member for 16 years. You helped raise two kids; you lightened the mood in our home when it was sometimes too heavy; you made us smile and laugh with your antics such as balancing on your hind legs to get noticed when there was popcorn in the room; and you loved unconditionally each and every day, even when you didn't feel good yourself. You were the perfect pet for us. We are grateful you are now resting in peace and we will miss you so very much. Love, Hugs and Kisses, Your FamilyxxxxooooLori ConsolazioGainesville, FloridaOctober 19, 2015
Cheyenne
4/24/2015 - 10/17/2015You came to us on a plane from Nebraska,
We flew you to your new home to stay,
A stranger said something I'll never forget.
“Great dogs, labs never have a bad day” !

He was right, you were the best pup in the world,
All fluffy, happy, playful and fun,
I finally got the lab I had dreamed of
And with you baby girl, I had won.

You stuck by me through thick and thin.
My shadow, never left my side,
When my heart was sick, I think you knew,
As your love for me you couldn't hide.

But, now you have grown weak and weary,
Your legs can no longer stand
I'm letting you go because I love you so much,
You went to sleep at home, paw in my hand.

You won't be greeting me as I walk through the door,
You won't be waking me to go out at night,
I’ll miss you lying beside me at work,
But still, you’ll never be out of my sight.

You loved the beach, the pool and your ball.
And you could jump so very high,
I'll remember all the times you made me laugh
And smile when I look up to the sky.
I won’t hear your collar as you approach a room,
Won’t hear your steps on the hardwood floor.
I won’t see you waiting in the window for me,
or hear you bark when someone’s at the door.

So be well, be free, run, frolic and play,
With the others that have gone there too.
And know how very blessed we were,
You’ll always have a piece of my heart with you.

Goodbye my Cheyenne, my sweet baby girl,
Thank you for being my companion, my friend
I'll think of you every day for the rest of my life,
Sleep well, my girl, Till we meet again.
.

Thank you for loving me unconditionally and giving me such love and joy. For so long it was just the two of us, and then we found a loving family, who loved us both. You were nothing short of a blessing my girl. I will miss you every second of everyday.
Cheyenne went to Rainbow Bridge in my arms on Oct 17, 2015 at home in the moonlit backyard she loved so much. S
She would have been 14 in April. ( Bare with me, this is my therapy ) J
