Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
4/1/1999 - 7/25/2013Like every other pet to their family, but like no other pet to ours. He was the best dog we could have ever lucked into having. He was a gentle giant that loved kids, his family and life until the end.

We miss you.

12/23/2012On 7/23/13, 7 months passed since Dude peacefully went to heaven.Dude was the most loving,orange tabby,furry feline. I had been grieving the loss of my cat, Scarlette, when my family got him. If you walked towards him; he would just stretch out and not walk away. He always rubbed his head against your leg. I could not bear to bond with him as I was not ready. It took me 3 months and he had my heart. I could not resist those deep purrs and nuzzles. He loved to get in bed and cuddle up against your side. If there was no room there; he would lay between your legs or on your feet. If it was morning; he would get on your chest and breathe hard.It was his way of saying" feed me". He loves to be petted from head to toe. Nearly a year later; I took in another cat and that cat loved to play fight with Dude. Dude allowed it. I could see the look in his eyes"ughh not this brat again". They would fight; but not enough to draw blood. Then, 10 minutes later would kiss and cuddle. They were truly brothers.
Dude had been pre-asthmatic. He never needed meds; but he always breathed heavily. That was the only real health problem he had. In the Fall of 2012; I noticed he was breathing heavier.I did not think much of it. But, I looked inside his mouth and saw a bad tooth. It was excised. Then, he got a URI. He would not eat,drink, or play. I knew something else was going on. Everyday I gave him meds and water through a syringe. I wiped the thick mucus off him. I groomed and gave him wet washcloth baths. I petted him.He was not getting better. He went from 14 lbs to 9 lbs. Finally, I saw he had a tumor against his larynx. That was causing the weight loss and breathing issues. It was pretty large. He probably had a week left. I decided to humanely euthanize him. I cried as it happened. I knew his Quality of Life was poor. I hated to see him suffer. He gave me such a good life. I always missed him when I had to go away. It was traumatic to loose him. But, I am glad he is no longer in pain. His brother, Baby, is less litter box challenged as well now. He gave more cuddles than fights towards the end. He misses him. I have accidentally call out Dude's name and Baby will look for him.

Things I miss about Dude:
I miss how you purred when i rubbed your belly and ears.
I miss the sway and swagger in your hips as you walked.
I miss how you loved to steal bites of Doritos chips and bacon.
I miss how you would give me a kitty massage when I had a bad day
I miss how you would chase lizards. You would never kill them tho.
I miss the playfights between your brother and you.
I miss how you would tell me if a date was a right or wrong man for me; by sitting on the back of the couch next to him.
I miss giving you hospice care in your final weeks. I did not mind it if it made you feel better and loved.
I miss how you would run as fast as your could throughout the house at times.
I miss how you made me trip or nearly trip.
I miss your eyes
I miss your purr.
I just miss you.

No one can replace you. I look at your final resting spot. I put fresh flowers on it a few times a month. I know you are chasing all the bugs in heaven. And, you are eating Doritos and bacon. I can't wait to get a nuzzle from you in heaven.. Til We meet again. We Love you.

5/1/2000 - 7/22/2013She will be missed!Ted CaudillHouston, TexasJuly 24, 2013
8/28/2006 - 7/22/2013Titan was my best friend, I loved him more than words can ever describe and he loved me back, unconditionally. No one could ever replace the joy in my heart when he was near, and now that hes gone, no one could ever fill the void that is there. Letting you go was the hardest decision I've ever had to make but I know it was the least selfish thing I could do. I know that now you are in a better place with no more pain and suffering, only health and happiness. I know that I will never foget you and will cherish every memory of you. Love always, Ashley♡Ashley DeslatteMarrero, LouisianaJuly 23, 2013

3/3/1999 - 7/21/2013Chloe was a Dalmatian-pit mix. She loved to take walks and rides in the car. She especially liked taking walks along the local nature trails. Chloe had a great disposition and appreciated everything she had. She loved he toys, her favorite was her teddy. Teddy needed many stitches over the years but made to the end. Chloe loved her family and was always excited to greet them. She knew her boundaries, the yard was fenced but Chloe would never wander. She loved her life, and shared the that life with us. Her presence was calming, always with a warm smile or a kiss.

On her last day she was on the lawn near a bird feeder where a rabbit was eating the seeds that would fall to the ground. The rabbit knew that Chloe was no longer a threat and just went on eating. Some how Chloe got up the strength to lift her crippled paws and gave chase for one last time reminding us of the days she would play games. Soccer was one of her favorite games.

2/18/2013 - 7/3/2013"Pucky," "Wacky Petunia," "Mishpucky (play on the Hebrew "mishpucha," meaning family)," "Katie cakes," "Fruit"
and many other silly nicknames...

You have only been gone now a couple weeks, but how terribly we miss you. You left a huge hole in our home.

Our friend of 11+ years. You were a fuzzy potato puppy when we adopted you. Never a biter, always a protector. Sweet, funny, silly and gentle. Strong with big bark, you pulled me on the leash at times and almost knocked me over. Best friend to Teddy the Labrador. Lover of the kitties, letting them swat your face and you laughing and thinking it was funny. Licking Mickey so much he was soaking wet.

Lover of hikes, especially running through tall grasses. Eating horse dung and hoof scraps after the farrier was done. An occasional litter box treat, but never any counter surfing, and you were way big enough to do it. I could also leave a bag of raw steaks and chicken in the car with you and Ted and nothing was ever touched... What self control.

A persevering dog spirit.

Played tug with Karl very hard, and very soft with me. How did you know I didn't have his kind of physical strength?

I loved how you chased your squeaky ball through the house. And our hikes were some of the best times of my life.

I know it was not easy for you when Teddy died. And then we moved to a city and had to do neighborhood walks more
and hiking less. But you never complained. You just took life one moment at a time.

I miss our walks together. So many walks together. Thousands. But you will always be at my side in spirit. I can't thank you enough for teaching me love and kindness, loyalty, consistency, silliness and constancy. My friend forever. I love you, always and forever.

Gentle to the end. Even at your worst suffering, you were so gentle and kind and wanted to protect the house and all of us in it. I wish I were more like you.

You were so brave, each step of the way. You barked when the vet came, and then you lay down next to her. You were so tired. We could see your breathing was getting harder and harder. You were ready… I was not.

I hope you are now reunited with Teddy. I hope my mom and dad are there for you too. You are free again, restored to health and wholeness. Ribono shel olam, רבונו של עולם, Master of the Universe, grant Katie a peaceful, happy and safe passing to the world of Spirit. I am forever grateful for and humbled by the divine gift of Katie's love and companionship. Infinite Love and Gratitude.

Glory Jones
6/18/2007Glory was truly like my soul mate. She was the most incredible dog I have ever had! She was smart, and had such a demeanor that could not be trained or taught, she just was made that way - really truly not like your average dog you see when you go out to the vet, or dog park, or anywhere. She was different - very special!! She was an excellent guard dog and only barked when there was a reason - the kids and I felt very safe with her. She was the only dog that we had that didn't have to be supervised with the cats - she just loved them. She would stay right by my side no matter what, whether she was leashed or not. She had the most beautiful glowing eyes, and you could read them as clearly as if you were reading words on a page! My Glory was so special to us!! She was just truly one of a kind!! I miss her more than words can say, and I will hold on with all of my heart to the hope of seeing her again someday!

Glory turned 6 years old on June 18th. She died of kidney failure.
