Smokey
1/3/2021RIP our beloved Smokey. You gave us 16 beautiful, loving, fun, loyal, obedient, and joyous years. May you be rejoined in heaven running freely and playfully one again with all of your canine brothers and sisters: Luke, Panda, Choco, Virgo and Princess. Also, your feline sisters Minue, and Baby. We will always have you in our hearts and minds. forever.Lenoir City, TennesseeJanuary 8, 2021
Oso
8/18/2011 - 1/7/2021Oso my sweet sweet boy. You have given me the greatest decade plus of love and genuine loyalty. You were the sweetest boy, literally everyone loved you. There was no training needed, you already knew to stay by my side. A leash was not necessary for you. You stayed by my side. The first dog to enter our lives. There will be no other like you. You were the alpha, told the youngsters to calm down and nap. The BEST little spoon. I did everything I could to give you the greatest life possible. You gave me the greatest gift I could have asked for, your love. A piece of me passed on with you. Waking up without your snoring was painful. You were the best big brother to Miel. You showed her how to be so much like you. Miel looks for you still. I miss our walks, butt scratches, naps, and most of all car rides. Ugh, you loved those car rides. Driving today without you hurt so badly. I miss your annoying whines for walks, rides and treats, I would give anything to hear that one more time. If I could have one wish- it would be for you to last a lifetime with me. I would give anything for a lifetime of happiness with you. I know you are peacefully resting with no more pain. I miss you baby. I just want one more kiss and cuddle. I love you more than everything big handsome. Rest easy baby, momma loves you so much. So freaking much.Nicole MokhiberNiagara Falls, New YorkJanuary 8, 2021
Dolly
8/14/2001 - 1/7/2021Dolly was a “sleeper” cat, a slow-burn. What do I mean by this? She used to sit at the far side of the room and stare at me, just stare at me, for long periods of time. She was not particularly affectionate with me, with the strange exception of when I got out of the shower (a pheromonal thing?), and I didn’t think she much liked me. This feeling only intensified when, during social gatherings, she would be all over any women in attendance, and she generally loved parties (she once famously plopped herself down in the middle of a chair circle when I hosted an end-of-semester class session at our home). When we realized that she would run under a table any time one of us put on boots, it occurred to us that she might have been abused, or specifically kicked, by a man before I adopted her. Although our bond certainly strengthened over the years (and she was so smart and intuitive—the kind of cat who would sleep by you all day when you were sick), competing with two attention hogs didn’t help. Then one day after dinner several years ago, I said to her “why don’t you ever come sit with me on the couch?” I swear this is true—she followed me and joined me on the couch for the first time. This became a habit, but she developed a tendency to steal my seat whenever I moved (I assume for the warmth). Sometimes, she would sit next to me, upright, and stare at me. I assumed she just wanted my seat. Then one day, she tentatively crawled on my lap, and I cried when I realized that, all along, she was just asking to sit on my lap. She sat on my lap a lot in the last few years , and our bond grew even stronger after first Cleo, then Max died. I somehow always knew she would be the last one standing, despite being the oldest. I am grateful for these last few, very special years with her and, as much as I hated losing Max, I am glad she got to be an “only cat” for her last year or so. I loved her deeply, we both did. She will always be remembered and always be missed. But today I want to celebrate her nearly 20 years of life—about all a cat can hope for—and to express my gratitude that she spent over 18 of those years with me.Andrew HostetlerLOWELL, MassachusettsJanuary 8, 2021
Riley
11/11/2006 - 1/7/2021Riley had a very long and eventful life, living to age 14. He loved his pop-pop, sleeping and eating, ducking people when they tried to pet his head, and was the mayor of our block, always keeping an eye out. He really enjoyed nesting - most notably in fuzzy blankets, laundry, purses, and jackets. He lived with his mom in Philadelphia, PA and loved to go for walks to the park, sit on the top of the couch and look out the window, and take long naps in the sun. He also spent a lot of time in the country with his grandmother and grandfather in upstate, PA. At his country home, he liked going on long walks, sitting outside, and eating snacks with his pop-pop. Over the past 9 months, Riley slowly lost function of his hind legs due to degenerative myelopathy and his mom was his full-time hospice nurse, helping him walk in a harness. Due to the pandemic and working from home, we were able to prolong his life and spend lots of time with him in his final year. He brought us so much joy, comfort, and stability during a particularly hard and uncertain year. He will be greatly missed.Lauren NelsonPhiladelphia, PA, PennsylvaniaJanuary 8, 2021
Copper
6/6/2009 - 1/7/2021One of the hardest things that has ever been required of me was the day that I had to let go as the angels carried you up to heaven.  💔 🐾 💔Lori SanchezThornton, ColoradoJanuary 8, 2021
Shadow
4/10/2010 - 1/7/2021Majestic
Regal
Loyal

A beautiful soul devoted to his family.

Shadow spent his early years as a country dog, exploring the woods of Northern Wisconsin. He spent the last 5 years in the city, and quickly learned to love the amenities of urban life.

As a young dog, he "raced" the Hummer down the road to our house, chased chipmunks, deer and wild turkeys. He paid daily visits to the elderly dog up the road.

When we moved to the city, Shadow became a well known figure in his South Evanston neighborhood. He was a "regular" at Bentleys and made a point of giving love and attention to the homeless - he greeted them without judgment and gave t hem unconditional love.

Shadow was the heart & soul of our home.

We are grateful for the years we had together.

Leroy
9/6/2006 - 1/2/2021Leroy was a big, chill, loyal, and friendly companion. He had a good 15 year run with countless canine, and human friends. He will be missed by many. Never gonna forget this big guy.Joseph AllenHampton, VirginiaJanuary 8, 2021
Bogie
10/13/2009 - 1/6/2021Bogie, you brought us more love, laughter and joy than we could have ever imagined, and we are broken - hearted that you are gone. Your 11 years went much too quickly! I am so grateful for the incredible memories we have with you: running in the fields and at the country club, hanging out with everyone at the pool, snuggling at night in mommy's bed, lots of cuddling and wet kisses with everyone that you could get close enough to. I always said you were such a lover! You brought a smile to everyone's face, as you thought you truly were a "lap dog", even at 83 pounds!

And, we will fondly remember your love for food, treats, bones and Frosty Paws ice cream. I woke up this morning and fought back the tears - I didn't have you to share my banana and peanut butter with - another one of your favorites! Even though we got annoyed at times with your barking, i would trade anything to hear that again. You were so loved by so many, and you gave so much unconditional love in return. We love you Bogie, and will miss you so much. Forever in our hearts!
