Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
2/2/2020Dr.Jessica came to help my family say goodbye to our sweet Daisy.
This was the 1st dog we had lost and it was important to us to keep her home with her sisters and brother.
Dr.Jessica was fabulous with my family and my 4 other dogs.
She instinctively knew exactly how to distract my Great Dane while we said our goodbyes.
I feel incredibly blessed to have been Daisy’s human and I feel very at peace with her passing.
Dr.Jessica certainly helped give me that.

3/17/2012 - 2/2/2020Our baby girl had to leave us today but we will never forget her. She was a big girl and she had the biggest heart. I will miss her most of all, she was my companion in everything I did.Marilyn HancockGraniteville, South CarolinaFebruary 3, 2020
6/7/2002 - 12/20/2019My dear sweet Romeo, how you were loved by all, and especially me. You were my heart, spanning nearly 2 decades enjoying life and travelling the world together, and you lived as long as you possibly could. I will always miss you my beloved, clever little boy, and I am eternally grateful for the love you gave me, and subsequently to your growing family: Dad, Sebi and Mia. I wish you peace, and that your next life brings you as much love, joy and treats as you so deserve. Until we meet again...I love you. Your Mum.Ajanta LehmanLarchmont, New YorkFebruary 3, 2020
1/1/2004 - 1/27/2020Having to say a final goodbye to this incredibly sweet boy was the most difficult decision we had to make - and our grief at losing him is inexpressible. We lost his brother Moe to cancer just this past November and while still grieving for him, we find ourselves once again striving to find the words to memorialize another beloved pet and to celebrate the incredible life he lived as a member of our family.Jay & Lisa McDonnellHaymarket, VirginiaFebruary 3, 2020

Missy Lee Velvets
5/10/2020 - 2/2/2020RIP sweet Missy Lee. She was Momma and Poppas baby girl. She was so loved. The only "child" in the house and absorbed every bit of love that was given. She was an indoor but had outdoor access in a gated community that loved her too. Neighbors loved a visit as she passed by their houses. So loved and will be so missed. She has left a large hole in our lives. Precious spirit and loving pet...Cindy PenningtonLexington, KentuckyFebruary 3, 2020
8/11/2020 - 2/1/2020Otis was an amazing dog and our best friend. He was the first dog we adopted as a couple and experienced every major milestone in our lives. He was there when we first got married, bought our first home together and got to see all three of our children. We included him in all our adventures throughout the 10 years we spent with him. Every person that met him instantly fell in love. It's been hard watching him age the last few years and seeing him slow down. It was extremely difficult to make the decision for him not to be psychically with us anymore but we felt that Otis deserved the dignity to go out on top. There's a huge hole in our lives right now and the sadness and pain is deep. We are finding some peace that Otis left this world in the best way possible, peacefully in front of a cozy fire, with music playing and us holding him while he took his last breath. Otis you will forever be a part of this family and in our hearts. Thank you for choosing us and thank you for all the love.Emilie GiordanoDenville, New JerseyFebruary 3, 2020
Shadow Motta
7/1/1995 - 12/10/2019We were so lucky to adopt Shadow from the Rappohanock Animal Welfare League (RAWL) when he was 4 months old. He was sweet, smart, brave, loyal and completely irrepressible, even when walking became more difficult for him toward the end. He was in integral part of our family and our kids' childhoods-- he saw them off to daycare and romped around Hunter Mill Country Dayschool when they were young, walked down the path to elementary school with them, visited the barn, accompanied them on the Halloween rounds - always dressed a human, did agility with 4-H, did some dog-sledding on snow days, and saw them off to college when they were in their teens and early 20's. He was always happy to sleep with anyone having a nightmare, was great running companion for me (even though he was much faster than me) and a wonderful older brother to Pandora (taught her to use "the bell" to go out, etc). We will miss you Shadow, but so glad you enriched our lives for so long.Michelle and Marcus MottaFAIRFAX, VirginiaFebruary 3, 2020
10/31/2009 - 2/2/2020Shilo truly was the best boy anyone could ask for. He was so smart, he could even open doors when we closed him out. He never met a person he didn't like, and he was so trusting of everyone. He was my first dog, and will always hold a very special place in my heart. It's so quiet without him.. this emptiness I feel inside me keeps growing and growing. The only bit of happiness I can find in this is that he's not in pain anymore, and he's chasing rabbits up by the rainbow bridge.Kelly SkipperMaryville, TennesseeFebruary 3, 2020
10/23/2001 - 1/30/2020Late this morning, our hearts lost a big light as we said goodbye to a special part of our little family - Chester ("Lady"). As she laid in my lap and gently and quietly fell asleep, she was surrounded by all of her family - Ryan, Sheila, and Marlin.

As I sat there looking at her adoption paperwork from October 23, 2004, my heart swelled with gratitude that the Universe brought us together, and allowed us to be there for each other for so long. On the application where it asked, "Why do you want to adopt?" I answered, "Because I fell in love with her." It could not be more true. In an instant, before I'd even held her, I knew she was coming home with me. Our hearts were meant to be together.

I am grateful for so many memories, so many cuddles, her gentle purrs, her greeting me when I walked in the door, and so much more. I know it will take awhile before I stop looking for her around the house, or wishing I could hear her purring softly next to me. Luckily, I have so many photos and videos that will bring her back to me whenever I want.

After going out for a long afternoon drive, on the way home as the clouds parted, a small rainbow emerged from the clouds and stayed visible for the whole ride home. I know it was her, letting me know she'd made it safely to her new comfy place to rest.

We all love you so much sweet Lady. There will never be another kitty like you. Sleep well, my dear dear friend.
