Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Butchie
8/6/2005 - 7/26/2020Yesterday we said goodbye to our beautiful, funny, lovable, sweet Butchie von Terrier. We made the decision earlier in the week to let him cross the Rainbow Bridge to Heaven. We got to hug him for the whole week and cry and tell him how much we love him and how much we were going to miss him. We let him know the whole week that he can go, and even though we will be hurting, we will be ok. We let him know that he deserved the peace. He got his favorite meal on Friday night and then special meals all day Saturday ending with his favorite dessert. Sunday morning I got up with him and took him outside in the yard where he loved to lay and hang with me everyday and we watched the sunrise. Afterwards I made him a bacon and egg breakfast and helped him eat it to ensure he got to enjoy it. Then we went back outside and waited for the Dr. Kim Slade from Lap of Love to come. Everyone got their good byes with him and told him everything we wanted him to know. We took a family photo, and we all look like crap but who cares, it is a photograph of the last time we all got to be together. We did it in his favorite place in the whole wide world, his home. He loved being home and he loved being with us. It was peaceful and even beautiful. Our boy is finally free of the discomfort he was dealing with. We are so sad in this house, the pain is unbearable, but we know it was time for Butchie to go. We were hoping we could wait till after his 15th birthday on August 6th but it wasn't meant to be. From the moment he entered our lives he became our baby and always acted like one. We truly believed he thought he was human. He was our "first" baby and our son's big brother. He was never mean to any person or animal he met (except for robins, he wanted to catch one so bad and would sit on the window sills stalking them). He would get mad and not speak to us for days when we would go on vacation and leave him with someone. He loved sleeping with us, as a matter of fact, he had to or he would cry all night- we never let him cry, he slept with us. When we were hurting he would snuggle into us and comfort us. We wish he was here now with that comfort because we are hurting. We wish there was a window in heaven where we can see how happy he must be now being able to see, hear, think clearer, walk, stand, jump and his favorite thing, run. We are waiting for his ashes to come home to us , the place he loved the most. We need him home, we want him home, with us. Butchie, as my husband would say, was "The greatest dog that ever lived!" Even in death. We love you Butchie, we miss you too damn much already. You truly were our joy and love- you were perfect. We will see you in Heaven when it's our turn. For now, say hello to all your family and friends and fur babies up there now and have a blast Butchie. RIP our little chocolate chip peanut butter cup. ❤️🐶🌈Jennifer GrzendaPISCATAWAY, New JerseyJuly 27, 2020
Choo Choo
5/6/2005 - 7/26/2020Choo Choo was the best friend anyone could ever have. We were blessed to have him in our lives. I’ve often said that I didn’t rescue Choo Choo, he rescued me. He was always so happy and excited about life and was just happy to spend his day with his family. It was an honor and a privilege to be his mom. I will love you forever sweet boy.Jennifer BaughKnoxville, TennesseeJuly 27, 2020
Bailey
11/1/2005 - 7/22/2020Last week we had to say goodbye to our beautiful Bailey. She was our constant companion for almost 15 years until she was diagnosed with cancer. She was such a well traveled cat and the best road trip partner a girl could ask for. She made the drive from Texas to Tennessee and then to Colorado. Her brother, Moo, already misses her so much as do we. I hope you're finding the best sunny spot to sleep in where you are. We love you, Bailey.Cassie M.Denver, ColoradoJuly 27, 2020
Sasha
6/23/2006 - 7/24/2020My beautiful, loving Sasha Bear got her wings Friday, July 24 2020 surrounded by her loving parents and fur-sisters Molly and Ellie Mae.
Sasha was the perfect dog and was loved by everyone she met.
Letting her go was the hardest thing we've ever done, but after 14 long years, her poor body just could no longer keep up with her beautiful spirit. She'll be missed beyond words, but we know she's running again, playing with her kitty brother Ralphie, past doggie friends, family and littermates.

Max
7/4/2002 - 7/25/2020Missing your unconditional love and sweet face, we are now apart. You may be gone from our lives, but never from our heart. You have been a most faithful friend and if love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.
Old man, may you now rest in peace, free of pain with all the chicken treats and sweets you want.
Snuggle up to Emily and Bambi and give them our love.
💘 Love and miss you so much!

Coco
4/20/2002 - 7/17/2020Sharing this in loving memory of my Mom's cat Coco. My mom had her for 18 years until she (Mom) was diagnosed with Leukemia in Oct 2019. She had to come to VA for treatment and Coco stayed in GA at my Mom's house while a family friend cared for her. When it became clear that Mom's treatment was no longer working and she wouldn't survive for much longer, her friends in GA drove Coco up to Virginia where Mom got to see her and spend some time with her before she (Mom) died. It meant so much to all of us that Mom got to see her one last time. A wonderful friend of mine, Kirsten, who had never owned a cat offered to take Coco. She only had her about two months when she suspected something was wrong with her and took her to the vet. Coco was diagnosed with Stage III Kidney disease and despite giving her fluids daily by IV and 1/4 of a Pepcid her appetite just did not improve and we had to make the heartbreaking decision to put her down. We arranged to have Dr. Gibson come out to Kirsten's so that Coco could be at home and would not be stressed when she took her last breath. Kirsten and I were both there, Kirsten holding Coco's body and me holding her face and looking her in the eyes, both loving on her as Dr Gibson administered the 3 shots over the 45 mins or so that it took to let her relax and pass peacefully. My hope is that Mom was there in heaven waiting for her when she arrived.Kelly KyriacouLeesburg, VirginiaJuly 27, 2020
Kora Sue
8/31/2013 - 7/23/2020Oh sweet Kora Sue!
We weren't counting on losing you so young. You were only with us 5 years, 9 months, and 10 days, which wasn't near enough time to love you. You were an angel sent to us and we will never forget you.

You were a part of our family, my walking buddy, and dad's wrestling partner. You worried about us when we were upset or angry. You never misbehaved or caused any trouble. You were so happy we rescued you and were so protective of us. You didn't deserve to die so young to cancer.

Our hearts are broken and you will never be replaced. We will miss you everyday and will forever be our friend!

Haze
9/6/2007Haze boy was such a gentle giant and he had the kindest soul. Haze was also fiercely protective ( we have had several broken windows to prove it). He was an awesome big brother to our kids and Cleo. He was, and will always be, a special part of our family. We will all miss him so much, and while we know he is at peace, things will never quite be the same 💔. We love you Haze boy.Rochester, New YorkJuly 27, 2020
Scout
9/24/2010 - 7/24/2020Scout we miss you. Our house is empty now even though there are two screaming children running around. When we wake up in the morning, there is not a face that pops into our room to greet us. We will always fondly love you. Sweet dreams and go chase Chopper around that big field and have a fun time.Karen HendrixLake Oswego, OregonJuly 27, 2020
