Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
5/27/2016Our dog Nabby passed away peacefully in her back yard at home on a beautiful day, at one of the places she loved to be. Before passing, she fell into a restful sleep, one which was very heartwarming to see considering all of the restless nights and days she had been having resulting from the multiple conditions she endured. Over the past several days, Nabby walked as much as she could, was able to see her family, said goodbye to her neighborhood dog friends, ate filet mignon for the first time, received hugs from everyone and died in the caring arms and presence of her family. Nabby was 14 when she went to her final rest. Nabby loved people, going for long walks in the neighborhood, playing ball (a master a ball handling), getting her teeth brushed (that’s right), “borrowing” toys from the neighbor’s dog, watching TV in the living room, chewing on her special blanket, and snuggling on the couch with family (and occasional strangers). Her suffering is now over, and she had a wonderful life right to the end. While we will miss her tremendously, we will not forget her and the sheer joy she brought to us all. She was truly loved by everyone who knew her, including friends, visitors, neighbors, her doctors, or her groomer (whose sessions went like this - 5 minutes cutting and 5 minutes cuddling – then repeat). We are so grateful Nabby was a part of our lives. She literally grew up with our children. She celebrated with us and comforted us in times of sorrow. Nabby, you were a great friend. In loving memory . . . . Nabby will always remain.Donna & RichWayne, PennsylvaniaMay 28, 2016
5/27/2016We only got to spend 2 1/2 years with you but it was the best 2 1/2 years we could have asked for. I will miss our snuggle days on the couch and sharing pizza.John FitrakisSeattle, WashingtonMay 28, 2016
5/24/2016Best. Dog. Ever.
You came to us late in life, but yet just in time. Besides making us smile and laughed, we all learned something from you, and we were so blessed to have you. We'll never forget you, Fredna.

2/28/2008 - 5/24/2016After an amazing battle with brain cancer, we had to let our dog, Tiger, go Tuesday. He was so full of life and wonderful energy. I love how he could be crazy and play hide and seek with me, but also had the ability to be gentle enough to cuddle with our twins, even as infants. He was so interactive with every member of our family, that the loss has really hit us hard. Our house feels so empty without him. He gave us eight amazing years, and we are so thankful we got these last four months. Thank you, Tiger, for choosing us to be your family, and for fighting to stay with us as long as you could. You have a piece of my heart, my friend, and you will be with us always. I love you and miss you terribly and will treasure the wonderful memories you've given us forever. Rest in peace buddy.Heidi OndaWestfield, IndianaMay 26, 2016
Malika dawn
2/8/2001 - 5/22/2016From the moment I saw you, so tiny laying in your parent's food bowl, I was smitten. Little did I know, that God sent an angel, in the form of a pug, just for me. For 15 years you were much more than just a pet. You were family member, covered in fur and had 4 legs.
The day you left us, I knew in my aching soul, that the day had come for us to part. My love for you was so great, and I wanted only the best for you, God wrapped his arms around me, as I had mine around you, He whispered, Let me have your angel, and remove all her pain, However her footprints and your memories in your heart will forever remain. and then you were free.
Run free Baby Girl, with your big fur brother Duke till we meet again.
Thank you for the years of joy, your loyal companionship, and the unconditional loving bond, we shared.
I love, miss and think of you everyday, Malika Dawn!!! (aka, Baby girl, Maka, Meek, Meek-meek, Pig in a pug suit, Sissy, Pug and Beautiful)

8/6/2002 - 5/25/2016Oh Lance. My sweet bubba. There will never be words to express how much I will forever love and miss you! A huge chunk of my heart passed with you today. And while I know that you are now 100% pain free, it doesn't make it any easier - not seeing your precious face or getting sweet kisses. You have been my cuddle buddy, running/swimming partner, travel companion, protector, shoulder to cry on, and the first face I see in the morning and when I get home for almost 14 years. I don't remember my life before you and it will never be the same without you. I know I was your everything and I just hope I did enough to show you that you were mine. I love you Lancer Pancer!Susan ByromRowlett, TexasMay 26, 2016
8/26/2004 - 5/23/2016My little girl, so sweet I don't have words to express how much I miss you and love you. We will be together again some day. I know you and Casey will play and take care of one another. Share your pillow with him.Allison TuckerCincinnati, OhioMay 26, 2016
6/28/2002 - 5/23/2016We miss you dear sweet boy. We will all be together again someday. It has been way to quiet so you will have to give us a little bark sometime to keep us in line. We love you always.Allison TuckerCincinnati, OhioMay 26, 2016
Griffin Lynn
11/1/2002 - 5/24/2016Hi My name is Griffin Lynn, I woke up Monday morning just like any other day not knowing it would be my last 30 or so hours on earth, but my Mom made those 30 hours as special as they possibly could be.

But before I tell you about that, let me tell you a little about me and my glorious journey here. Mom adopted me when I was a very young pup and welcomed me lovingly into her new home, just a few months later she welcomed another sweet puppy into our family, Bailey immediately became my best friend ever!

Mom, Bailey and I had an amazing 11 years together filled with so much love, great adventures, and so very much fun. A few of our favorite things were dog parks, boating and swimming, and the hours and hours and hours of wonderful hikes all across the country. You see I had such a wonderful time exploring the country, can you believe I had been to 14 states in my life? Sometimes when Mom had to travel for work, Bailey and I would have a ton of fun at Doggie Day Care too. One of my favorite memories was our camping trip together to Mammoth Lakes, California. But without a doubt, my favorite day ever was spent at Dog Beach in San Diego, California.... this was my Doggie Disney World.

But on a sad and unexpected day, 27 months ago Mom and I lost our beloved Bailey, and I really don't think I have been the same since. And then 8 months after that I got the dreaded and sad news that I had cancer. Mom thought our time together would be brief, but we had 18 good months more together. But as the days turned into weeks, and the weeks turned into months, my body just couldn't keep my with the rest of me... I was getting more and more tired and more and more weak.

For a while now Mom would whisper to me when she tucked me in at night, "Sweet Griffin girl its OK to leave and go be with Bailey," or "if you need to go tonight its OK." But you see it wasn't OK, I couldn't leave my Mom. I had been here for her through her entire adult life, I was her pillow when she need to cry and I would gently wipe away her tears. I was her protector and always by her side. I couldn't leave her here without me, so I would hide the pain and fight on. Thankfully, my Mom saw that my time had come, and I am thankful she loved me as much as I loved her and she made the decision to let me go....

But before she did, she made sure I knew how much I was loved (though trust me I never doubted that!). After our typical morning walk, we loaded into the car - I LOVE CAR RIDES, but we don't seem to take them as much as we used to probably because I couldn't jump in or out of the car anymore. She rolled down the back windows so my ears could flop in the wind. And we parked at a lake, she let me roam around off leash (despite the posted signs) and splash around in the water. We got home and she made me BACON (My Mom is a vegetarian, so meat was a rarity for me, but she knew how much I loved it). I was smothered with cuddles, scratches and extra loving! And then I dined on a perfectly medium rare steak and mashed potatoes. YUMMY. She also poured me a Coors Light, but I wasn't very interested in it. I did however, love the Ben and Jerry's Cookie Dough ice cream she gave me for desert. She blew up an air mattress that night so she could sleep right by my side. The next morning we took our usual morning walk and then had a coffee and doughnut date, followed by one last bone. She gave me one last chance off leash at the dog park, but I was hot and tired. Our afternoon (and life together) came to an end as she made me an Egg and Bacon Brunch, my last meal! I gobbled up and retreated to my comfy dog bed in the living room where I would stay.

A short bit later, a lady came to visit me, I hadn't met her, but she was gentle and sweet to me and she stoked my head as Mom stayed by my side. She gave me this shot, that I wasn't very happy about, but quickly my pain was gone and I felt pretty sleepy. I decided to rest my head and take a nap, I was so comfortable in my bed - in my house - with the smell of bacon still in the air - and most importantly Mom at my side stroking my fur. It was in the next few moments that I would take my last breath, with Mom still right there by my side!
