Annie
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.

Jaida "Big J" Fowler
1/4/1999 - 8/21/2015Jaida was as good of a dog as anyone could ever ask for. Big, lovable, and good with all types of people. She went through her long life as the fiercely loyal companion to Jennifer Sheak Fowler, later to be adopted by her husband and step-daughter, David and Lorelei. She'll be forever in the hearts of her family and eternally missed. We love you "Big J".

We miss you "Big J" so much - we'll never find another dog that'll touch our hearts the way you did.

King
3/26/2007 - 8/21/2015King, my Buddy, the house is not the same without you. It is so lonely coming home and not having both you and Hillary meeting us at the door, I miss the squeaks of your favorite toy and you being right there with me every step I took throughout the house. We know you are in a better place, no more pain suffering from hemangiosarcoma. You are missed tremendously and will always be in our hearts.Diane ThoelRay, MichiganAugust 25, 2015
Nirvanna
12/29/2007 - 8/22/2015You are my child not just a dog! We were there when you were born. You were singled out by the markings on your chest. We saw you as much as possible. We watched you learn to walk, open your eyes and sneak into the corner to get away from all of your siblings. You had us so amazed. We brought you home at 5 weeks and from that point on you were always with me. I was fortunate enough to be with you daily (working from home). You loved to sleep under the beds until you couldn't fit anymore than you tried to take over the beds. You were so demanding by telling us when you wanted to go on a walk or when you wanted a treat. I would tell you to sit and you would back up to the couch and sit like a person. There were so many times we had to coax you to get out of the truck after a drive. You just simply refused to leave it. You knew when we were going away when you saw our suitcases and give us attitude. You were always in the care of someone who truly loved you so it was a little easier to leave you but we always were so excited to come home to you. You would always meet us at the door when we came home with a toy in your mouth. You made me feel so secure at night when no one else was home. You drove us crazy with your protectiveness. Only letting who you deemed worthy of coming into our home or being around your daddy. You had your crazy wild side that made us laugh. You would always go from room to room sharing your night with us all. Sleeping with everyone as if to say I am watching. Things weren't always perfect but that was life. When you got sick I knew I had to do what I can to make you happier. This is my way of healing and saying that I love you so dearly and miss you. Today is the first day that you are not with me while I work. It is so hard waking up and not doing what we would do every morning. I hope you are at peace and know that I will some day be with you again to take you on your walks like you love.Francie MartinezPort St Lucie, FloridaAugust 24, 2015
Ginger
8/23/2015We love and miss our Ginger -- she was such a good girl. Gone way too soon, but she lived her short life to the fullest and got all the love we could give her and returned it a thousand times over.

Kymmie Deiss
2/26/2015 - 8/20/2015To our baby girl,

You are the love of our lives. You made us a family. Taking care of you was a gift and a blessing. Your pure love and devotion, your joy for life and nature changed our lives for the better. Being around you was like having the most extra ordinary day every day. I will always remember how you loved the car and sang and tapped your feet when we were driving. I will never forget how you loved to bury your face in the snow, and take long walks in the rain. So many memories that we will cherish as we built our life around you. Our heart dog. My soul friend. We thank God you were sent to us.

Shadow
11/17/2002 - 8/15/2015Shadow,
Thank you for all of the joy that you brought to our lives. For nearly 13 years you lived every day to the fullest and gave us your unconditional love. You stole my heart from the first moment that I picked you up. Your strength and desire to live was shown to us early when you conquered Parvo. From that experience, it's like you knew that you were blessed with a second chance and made the most of every moment. You will forever be in my heart. You are truly an angel and I miss you dearly. I love you baby girl. You will never be forgotten.

Bud
7/22/2004 - 8/23/2014How do you tell your best friend goodbye? How do you deal with the loss, the hurt, the anger? Bud, you have been gone a year now and it took me that long to write a memorial for you. The pain was just too much to bear. I miss you as much now as I did then. I have spent a year mourning your loss, but now it is time to celebrate your life. To reflect on the things that made you who you are. You were the best hiking buddy anyone could ever ask for. You would go bounding down the side of the mountain when you heard rushing water and wait there wondering what was taking me so long. You would be so excited to have found the waterfall. And when I took pictures you would wait patiently - usually - for me to get through and if I took too long you would take a quick nap. You knew at the end of the hike we would stop for a cheeseburger and on some days, you just wanted to skip to that part.
I will never know why you chose me to be your person, but I am glad you did. You will be furever in my heart as I continue my journey and I know that one day you will be waiting to lead me to the end of our trail where you will have a cheeseburger waiting to share with me.
