Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Sasha
11/26/2003 - 7/8/2020Exactly a month ago at this time was one of the longest, yet shortest days of my life as I had to make one of the most difficult decisions. I had to let go of my beautiful baby girl Sasha, or Shashi as we used to called her. The long wait for the vet to arrive to the house to help her out of her pain, and shortest, because we wanted to spend so much more time with her before she had to go to heaven.

Shashi beat all odds, with thyroid issues, diabetes, diverse growths and major arthritis against her. She kept fighting to stay with us. Sashi kept me company for over 17 years. She was so special to all of us, not only because she was so smart, but because she was loving, caring and beautiful in heart and mind.

She loved everyone, children, puppies, people, me as her proud mom, her siblings, but especially her dad. Her siblings saw her as their pack leader with the biggest heart. Sasha was perfect, not because she was mine, but because of the lack of a single mean bone in her body. She was a gift from heaven. We spent good and bad, happy and sad times together. She was my all.

Her body gave up on her, as this weekend her health turn for the worse. She was such a smart girl, and so well behave, respected by all. Her siblings saw her as their pack leader with the biggest heart.

My heart aches so much as I miss her terribly. Taking care of her in her last months was intensive, but the void of love that I feel was worth every minute of it. If only I could have just found the cure for all her illnesses… It gives me comfort to know she is no longer suffering and is in heaven to join her sister Angelica (Jelly) and little brother Beau, truly all angels. I feel so fortunate for having been given so many little angels to share my life.
Sashi thank you for the amazing life we had together!! You were my little person that always understood it all. May your next journey to heaven be a great one. Enjoy your siblings, who have been waiting for you for some more fun. Save us a spot in heaven, I can’t wait to see you again.
We will miss you terribly, there will never be such a special and perfect little girl as you, my baby girl.!!

Bella
8/1/2004 - 8/6/2020On August 6th, I finally had the chance to cuddle my soft Bella up on my chest while she slept and eventually ran across the bridge to her golden brother, Cooper. Making the decision to set her free of her failing body was one of the hardest I've had to make. I knew it was coming but it hurt to let her go. I was her person. Bella loved to lay on my lap on her terms. I loved those moments bc it was as close to cuddling her as I could get. Her purrs calmed me and she kept me warm. For sixteen years, she and I were "the girls" in a house full of boys. I'm thankful for our time together. I miss you dearly. My lap feels empty.Kimberly PopeMartinez, South CarolinaAugust 8, 2020
Kilo
12/3/2007 - 8/1/2020He was my therapy, my companion. He was there through hard times, breakups, let downs, life changes. Pretty much everything I needed help coping with in life he was my shoulder to lean on. He gave me a long happy half of my Life. Looking back i remember the great times we shared as man and dog. It's true they really are your best friend. You can yell at them and they will still be there waiting , wagging their tales. I miss my guy so much!Eileen BenjaminFt Lauderdale, FloridaAugust 8, 2020
Stepper
4/4/2008 - 8/2/2020On August 2, 2020 I had to say goodbye to the sweetest girl in the world, my beautiful greyhound Stepper. She was perfect.
Stepper came in to my life quite by chance in May 2011 when I was fostering for a local greyhound rescue. She was my third foster, and she was just too good and too sweet to give up--yep, I’m a failed foster. Stepper and I never did agree on who rescued whom. I was in the midst of a divorce and starting over, and she was trapped at a flooded track in Alabama. We shared a love and a bond that I will always treasure. She gave me a reason to keep moving forward. I loved her and cared for her with all my heart for nine years and I wouldn’t change a thing. In 2015 she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and had her right rear leg amputated. She was a miracle girl--almost five years post diagnosis. In the end, it wasn’t the osteo that got her, it was just old age and a very weakened back end. I knew I had to let her go when she could no longer stand and kept collapsing last Sunday.
Stepper loved everyone she met and everyone in my life knew and loved Stepper. “How’s Stepper?” was usually the first questions others asked me. She loved her meals, her daily peanut butter Kong, and her nightly chew treat. We had so many sweet times together--walks, hikes, sitting on the deck watching the world go by, trips to visit friends and family, therapy dog service. However, I think my favorite times were just our many quiet evenings alone together--just being. There is a huge hole in my heart and in my life. It’s quiet here and she is no longer in her bed. I miss stroking her soft ears and seeing her stare at me with love. Run free sweet Stepper--on all four legs. We’ll continue our discussion of who rescued whom when I see you again. Until then, you are forever in my heart and will always be a part of me.

Sullivan
9/7/2006 - 7/31/2020We will all miss you very much, Sullivan. You loved us unconditionally and we loved you back. I, personally, will miss our time together while you kept me company in about everything that I did. I will especially miss how you would bark when you heard my car pulling into the driveway after work because you knew that I had come home and how after dinner, when the kitchen was all cleaned up, you would look at me saying, "Okay, now I know that it is time for our walk so let's get moving." You were a good friend and although you were misunderstood by some, you were a loyal, loving dog. We hope that you are having fun in heaven and that you were welcomed by your sister, Chessie, and the rest of the family who were waiting your arrival.. We love you.Kevin DuncanReading, PennsylvaniaAugust 8, 2020
Keely
1/8/2005 - 8/5/2020My Aussie, my best friend, passed away today at the age of 15 1/2 years. Keely went everywhere with me. Always by my side. She knew what I was going to do just by which shoes I put on. Sleep well sweet one. Cross that rainbow Bridge and find Chip, your friend, and enjoy life together.Florence BarnesLake Mary, FloridaAugust 8, 2020
Lucy
6/12/2006 - 7/26/2020Lucy Our sweet girl, What a blessing you have been. Though we supposedly rescued you, The real rescuing was your rescue of Us. You brought joy and comfort to our Troubled hearts. Thank you for your steadfast love and Loyalty. Thank you for the snuggles and Kisses. Thank you for being a sweet treasure We could love and care for when we Couldn’t figure out how to love and Care for ourselves. God’s grace, mercy and love Were at work when He brought us All together to be a family, to heal brokenness and fill the empty Spaces. Now, as you gently pass, we say Goodbye to our dear Lucy, but we’ll Always keep in our hearts our Special forever memories. Rest In Peace sweet girl. Lucy, you are physically no longer with us but you will always be in my heart. Thank you for picking me to be your daddy. I never knew having a dog could be such a lesson in love. I never knew unconditional love. You taught me more about love than any person. I’m hurting right now. I know eventually the pain will subside. But, I need you to know that Daddy loved you so, so much. He never loved like that before you and will likely never love that way again. You will always be my sweet girl! I hope you are running and rolling and eating and having fun at the rainbow bridge. I’m so sorry that you got sick and we were unable to help you get well. I miss you so much!!!! No baby girl to be happy when daddy comes home. That kills me, but I would rather carry that pain than for you to suffer another moment. Daddy cries every day because he misses his sweet Lucy! If there is an afterlife and I can somehow squeak by I will meet you at the rainbow bridge. I’m looking forward to holding you, petting you, kissing your sweet cheek, rubbing behind your ears and your chest. You were always the best girl. You just wanted to be a good girl and you were. Rest In Peace my sweet Lucy!Mark & Kathy BrewerKnoxville, TennesseeAugust 8, 2020
Milo
5/27/2004 - 7/21/2020Sweet, sweet Milo--you were the best dog we EVER had. You were the ONLY dog, ever, that I could say without hesitation, that you would never hurt a person or another animal. You helped us, immensely after "your boy" died and you bonded so well with Dad, after they told us you didn't like men. I couldn't have gotten through the last 6 years without you. I am so glad that Ethan picked out such a perfect dog. We will always , always love you and I hope you were able to find Ethan and Gramps when you crossed the Rainbow Bridge. You gave us so many fun memories. We will never forget you and we'll always love you.West Bloomfield, MichiganAugust 8, 2020
Emily
1/1/2006 - 8/6/2020Our Emily passed away. She died peacefully in her bed, with surrounded by her loving family, along with her companion dog, Elsa and her cats nearby. She was an exemplary pup. Aways a good dog. Always kind and gentle with the family cats. She was 14 and a half, and her kidney failure and arthritis were too much for her to bear any longer. Dr. Brad from Lap of Love Animal Hospice came to the house and put her peacefully and gently to sleep. She had a good, long life with lots of fun, tasty snacks, week-long trips to the beach, walks in the snow, visits with her Mammie and Pop Pop, and the companionship of her big sister-dog Sara and her little sister-dog Elsa, her cats, Frederick, Becky, Oliver, and Arthur, and her cousin-dog Remy. She's with her sister-dog, Sara and her Mammie now, but I'm certain we'll meet again. We loved her so and we'll miss her. Until we meet again...Diane Senft-McCluskeySwarthmore, PennsylvaniaAugust 7, 2020
