Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love

1/20/2007 - 8/21/2020He was welcomed home. Today, the Boy made his final journey, but not alone. He traveled with other souls who also ascended to their final reward this day. His life was not memorialized in grand speeches nor was his passing honored with bands, parades and lowered flags. But he was a hero as much as any living being who brought untold happiness, offered loving comfort and gave selflessly to others. His life well-spent was rewarded with the greatest blessing of all: a joyful place in the immortal Bark Park.

Sadness, loneliness and emptiness have replaced his happy barks, playful antics and faithful affection. For those of us who knew and loved him, the grief of his passing is a deep and enduring pain that can only be eased by time and faith. Our only consolation lies in the knowledge that this small and brave soul who traveled so far and brought joy to so many now makes his eternal home jubilantly journeying on endless heavenly roads encountering myriad new friends along the way.

Mourn his passing but never bid him farewell for he is safe in God’s arms and His promise of everlasting life, and it is there that we will meet again.

2/6/2006Cash loved going to the beach and went to many lakes in California and Nevada. He would get his feet and belly wet though he was not fond of swimming.
He loved being in the warm sun and hopping around the rocks.
Most all he loved being with his family.

9/2/2011 - 10/2/2020To the loudest, most lovable a-hole there ever was. You were my world baby boy and I wouldn’t trade a single second of the time we had together to escape the pain of losing you. Thank you for being my other half for 9 beautiful years.High Point, North CarolinaOctober 7, 2020
10/7/2005 - 10/1/2020A note I wrote for my friends.

I have always been a dachshund person.

They always want to be touching and connected to you no matter how uncomfortable it is for you.

They have a great sense of adventure and are always on the hunt for something, especially if it can be digested.
They have no concept of their size and are fearless; being up for any challenge, whether a steep incline or an adversary five times their size.

And like all dogs, have an unconditional love, always seeming to understand what you are feeling and are always consoling.

5/29/2004 - 10/4/2020My little baby Pookie. I remember how fast I fell in love with you. You were the runt of the litter and the owners were shocked when I declared you mine. I think they even would have given me a discount on the price but I couldn't give them my money fast enough. I knew that your value was far beyond some summer paychecks I had gathered. Your little pink belly and puppy breath were the most precious thing I ever touched and smelled. That very first night when you cried in your bed I scooped you up and you curled in so tight next to my chest, the sound of your little cries were replaced with the sound of your snoring. We both knew at that moment you would never be a crate dog. Or let's be honest a real dog at all. You were a crazy hybrid of a puppy, spirit guide, sage, baby, child, fairy, spirit animal and.....had a million nicknames for a million pieces of magic you contained. You got me through the toughest years of my life. You soaked up my tears through break ups, graduations, addictions and hurt. You jumped in the air and wagged your tail amidst, joy, loss, adventure, creation, love, many beginnings and many endings. At the end of the day you helped me to grow beyond what I could have imagined. You were a perfect combination of sass and sweet. My little mirror. My sweet shadow. The piece of me that would always soften and gain perspective at the end of the day. I always knew the day would come when we would have to say good bye. I never imagined it would hurt this much. I feel like pieces of my skin are being torn away. And yet, I would do it all over again to experience the love and joy I only knew because of you. It was a joy to see you into your old age. To call you grandma and listen to your wise energy as you slept. As your health declined you taught me how to sit in stillness and meditate for something greater than me. You showed me how resilience and love go hand in hand. You showed me how to adapt and stay flexible. Most of all you showed me how this spirit is indestructible. I felt your freedom the moment you took your last breath. I cried with joy at how expansive you became and how you filled our house with your whispers of love and life. We promised each other so many times in this life that we would see each other again and it carries my thoughts to better things. I saw you in a fox tattoo the other day, I saw you when the visiting dogs leash fell off your spot on the wall, I saw you and smelled you in my dreams, I felt your fur on my face as I squeezed your blanket. We heard you in the wind as we drove into the hills and felt your sun on our face. I wonder if I will ever go another day where I don't think of you and where my heart doesn't burn to feel your baby hairs against my face once more. It was an epic journey and you were a living legend in your time. Thank you a million times again and again for coming. For choosing me and choosing this life with us. You elevated it beyond our imaginations. I love you forever baby girl. Continue to spread your magic Pookie girl.Kate RizzoLakewood, ColoradoOctober 7, 2020

12/6/2007 - 9/24/2020Bodie you were such a sweet sweet girl from the day we got you as a puppy. You walked right up to me and we had to take you home. You grew up fast but always remained a pup at heart. You greeted everyone with happiness and a tail wag. You took great care of all three kids and we are all missing you so much!Kristin HeanEdgewater, MarylandOctober 7, 2020
