Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Preciosa (precious)
4/12/2004 - 7/28/2020Preciosa was a sweet, loving dog. Her whole life was devoted to her family, dog and people. Old age betrayed her, but she never gave up her spirit. She showed us how important it is to love others and to get the most out of every day. We miss her bright shining eyes and her caring face. However, what she gave us in her sixteen years will remain, our sweet baby girl.Diane PeraltaWest Chester, PennsylvaniaAugust 1, 2020
Reilly
10/15/2003 - 7/27/2020You will always be in my heart. You were my best friend and have been there with me through life’s most difficult challenges. I will never be able to thank God enough for teaching and showing me what unconditional love means. I will never forget all the moments you made me smile and laugh. The times when I wanted to hug you and kiss you so much I thought I would suffocate you. You were the most loving, playing, gentle cat I’ve ever known. You would rather have spend your time with me than with any other family member. I will share pictures of you to everyone I know and tell people how amazing you were. Just know this is the worst pain of my life and loving each day without you is unbearable.Jill PorteraBristol, ConnecticutAugust 1, 2020

Allie Sullivan
12/30/2004 - 7/20/2020Our sweet Baby Girl, our Allie Bear. It’s been 11 days since you left this world and ours hearts are shattered. You were such a force in our lives that we grieved your loss before you even left us, just knowing that our lives would never be the same. The moment your heart stopped beating the world became dimmer, less joyful, empty feeling. You were such an amazing little girl and we are so very thankful that God honored me with being your mama for 15 ½ years. From the day we met, you’ve brought laughter, joy and light into our lives. You were so special, we had a humanlike connection – something we never had with any other family dogs. You teased like a person would tease, you smiled full-on goofy and silly with your teeth, you kissed with your lips like a person and you loved nothing more than just being one of the girls. We will miss our girl sitting on the stairs with us at the lake watching the ducks, we will miss feeding you tiny bites of gummy bears, Twizzlers and popcorn on movie nights. You snorted when you smiled – it was precious and adorable and will be so badly missed. You were such a goober with how you would fling your squeaky toys, almost like they were filled with lava and you couldn’t touch them for more than a brief second. We will miss the games we would play… we could just make up a game and you’d catch on right away and play back, making us laugh until we cried. Oh, how you loved watermelon and you ate pears like a person. We will miss that long nose that you used like a finger to poke us when you wanted something or to push things away when you didn’t want something. You had a better wardrobe than any of us did and you wore them so cute… you in your little dresses or hoodies and how you would walk around the room until everyone said how pretty you looked in them. We will miss your very loud bark which is why you were our ‘Yorkietriever'. Oh, how we will miss your beautiful face and those big brown eyes that took life in with such passion. But most of all we will miss your sweet and loving spirit and how you filled up a room and owned it. There were no strangers in your little world, everyone was your friend and we know you are now in heaven running beautifully and giving everyone you meet snorty smiles and kisses and making new friends. I am envious of all of them and how lucky they are! We look forward to the day when we can once again see you and kiss you. We love you with everything we are and our hearts are broken with your loss. But we will see our sweet baby girl again someday in heaven.Vicki SullivanGrapevine, TexasAugust 1, 2020
Bossy
11/11/2020 - 7/27/2020My sweet girl Bossy earned her angel wings on Monday July 27th. Although I wish she could have stayed with me for the rest of my life, I take comfort in knowing that she got to spend the rest of her life with me . Over the last few months I watched as she got sick, knowing that our time together was growing shorter. I'm so grateful to know that she is no longer in pain. I cant wait for the day we will get to meet again, I just hope she reaches out her furry face, so I can kiss her on the head once more.Samantha ThomsonMagna, UtahAugust 1, 2020

Simba
5/5/2007 - 7/13/2020It is with a heavy heart that I let you all know that Simba has transitioned. (5/5/2007 – 7/13/2020). He transitioned peacefully and beautifully at home. Simba was a faithful friend and family member, and he accompanied me almost everywhere. He loved water. He loved snow. He loved the sun. And he came to work with me every day and was the best road dog. We drove as far north as Montreal, all the way down to Orlando, and as far west as Chicago. We hiked the Appalachian trail and he accompanied me on research trips. Simba made friends easily – including humans, other canines, felines, and equines. He just had an energy about him. And that energy will be missed by many.

There are so many stories I could share about this great hound, but the one I think encapsulates Simba best happened in my classroom about a year after I first adopted him. While sitting in a circle, I was facilitating a discussion on child abuse in a small seminar called Trauma, Culture, & Coping when a student sitting directly across from me started to tremble and began to cry. Simba, who was lying next me on the floor, got up on his own accord, walked over to the student, and nestled his head in her lap. She immediately calmed. He stayed there with his nestled head for the rest of the class.

It was after this that I realized Simba would make a good therapy dog and we started training. Although he briefly worked with autistic adults, hospice care is where he shined. He was patient and kind with those nearing the end of their lives and he always seemed to know when to be silly and when to be subdued.

And while he took great care of others, he took extraordinary care of me. He was an abundant, daily source of both joy and tranquility. And when I had cancer last year he was with me every step of the way, even though he was contending with his own health challenges. And I cannot even articulate how important he was to me during these past socially distant months, as the deadly COVID – 19 pandemic took an exceptional toll on my family.

Simba, I honestly believe you hung on as long as you did to not only ensure my survival, but to help usher me into a renewed state of healing and happiness.

But now it’s time for you to rest, sweet Simba. Thank you for everything. You were such a very good boy.

Dicky
8/8/2006 - 7/28/2020To my precious DemoCAT Dicky, you were and always will be the light of my life. You smoothed all the rough edges and left peace and tranquility in your wake. I miss our “conversations” and your back talk always asking me “why” when I told you no. I miss you sitting in my lap every night watching the evening news and your purring reassurance that everything would be all right. You had a tough introduction to the cruelty that lurks in the real world when you were abandoned in a box with your 3 -week old siblings on a hot South Carolina August day. But you held no grudges and set about to squeeze every drop of living out of your next 14 years. The joy you brought into my life will live on in my memory. This past year was hard for you as you battled lymphoma but you stood up to the trials and discomforts like the Gentleman-cat that you were - always putting on a brave face and making the best out of every day. Your eyes always reminded me that “Today was a Gift”. You have gone on to another plane but you will always be here with me in my heart. I love and miss you so much. I just wish I could put my arms around you and bury my face in your soft sweet fur just one more time. Til we meet again.Rosemary CalhounChapin, South CarolinaJuly 31, 2020
