Pet Memorials
Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
10/1/1999 - 10/29/2012It has taken me a month to sit down to write Buster’s memorial as it’s still hard for me to believe that he’s still not with us. He was the most loyal companion and made my heart smile so much each and every day. One unique boy, truly one of a kind.

Technically his official breed was Doberman / Lab, but in actuality we all realized that he had transformed into a “PEOG” (People / Dog). He was so much of our social gatherings with friends and family, standing around like he was part of the group…being a regular busy body.

As with all our friends, Buster too acquired a few nicknames: “Mr. B”, “The Greeter”, “Mr. Velvet Ears” and “Panky” (a pet name that my husband and I gave him at some point that stuck).

His understanding of vocabulary was none like I have ever witness. Eventually my husband and I would spell or speak in code so Buster wouldn’t understand, especially anything dealing with “going”, “ready”,” car rides”, etc. And if he didn’t understand, you knew he was trying by the way he would tilt his head back and forth trying to figure out what we were saying.

And of course he had his favorite activities: early morning walks without his leash & meeting up with other 4-legged friends, swimming at Belleair Dog Beach, boat rides to none other than “Buster Island”, riding in the truck (front seat of course), stalking squirrels (aka Bin Laden’s), taking a “walk about” in the Cul-de-sac to visit the neighbors cats, Saturday afternoon naps with Mom & Dad, broom chase and getting a new stuffed animal in the suitcase whenever we came home from vacation or business trips. And yes he was spoiled to the max, but it was fun and so much worth it!!! He gave us some much laughter, joy and happiness for the 13 years that he was with us, which by no means was long enough.

He was my constant Kling-On (true busy body fashion)…always wanting to know where I was and what I was doing. I miss my shadow but know that deep down that he’s in a better place and hope that he’s with his best bud Killian hanging out like the two old guys that they were.

When our time is up, we certainly look forward to the day when we will meet again and when we do, it will be our turn to be the Kling-On. We love you and miss with all our hearts.

What a blessing to have the love for and of a creature as sweet and loyal as my little Riley. I can honestly say that in over fourteen years, we were never left to wonder how much we were loved by the other. What lessons he taught me about living, loving and dying. I miss him every moment... Every moment.

I love you, Riley. You will always be "the sweetest little puppy in the whole wide world!"

We were blessed to have Moses in our lives for almost 14 years. Throughout the years he was there through happy times, sad times, two bouts of breast cancer and a move to Florida. His love was truly unconditional and we miss him everyday. You are forever in our hearts Moses, we will always love you to the moon and back.Tampa, FloridaNovember 19, 2012

Lillian and terri
In memory of losing my 2 cherished girls, Lillian and Terri 6 months ago. Seems like yesterday, as I miss them so much! They were so much a part of my life and took pieces of my heart as they left for the Rainbow Bridge! Until we meet again....I love you both!Claudia RysdonTampa, FloridaNovember 19, 2012
We put Lily to sleep just a little while ago. She passed very peacefully here in our own home. We were blessed to have the services of a very caring vet.

At long last her spirit and love of life gave way to the cancer that overwhelmed her. It was time, she was tired and ready.

We will miss her, her excited greeting whenever we came home, her love of Dairy Queen and ice cream, her watchful eyes and ears that always sensed someone’s arrival.

We will miss her, her loyal companionship that would follow us from room to room at home, her never ending effort to please, the way she would heard us when we went for rides on our bike.

We will miss her, the softness of her beautiful coat of fir, the warmth she would emit when she cuddled with us in bed on a cold winters night.

We will miss her, the favorite places she would always lay so that she could feel the coolness from air conditioning vents.

We will miss her, the eagerness with which she was always willing to go for a ride in the car or for a walk in the park.

We will miss her, the love she had for freshly fallen snow, how she used to run and jump in it or simply lay down in it.

We will miss her, the days she spent at work with Joy, bringing added life to the studio workshop as she lay by Joy’s side.

We will miss her, the way in which she would run to find Geoff when she came home from a day at work.

We will miss her, her strong character that carried her through three major surgeries, never complaining, always striving to get better.

She liked everyone she came in contact with, her tail always swishing back and forth.

She loved Joy and I and taught us what unconditional love really means.

We will miss her.

We will miss her.
