Baci
3/1/2001 - 1/8/2021I'm not great with words but i'd like to share Baci's story.

Baci was less than a year old when my wife rescued him. She picked him because when she held him at the shelter, he would not stop kissing her. That's why she named him Baci. Baci is Italian for "kisses," pronounced "Bachee." I met Baci and my wife when he was 4 years old.

I remember the 1st night I spent the night at my wife's home, Baci was so protective of her, he would not let me sleep on the bed. Over the weeks, months, and years he opened up to me. Baci was a very fast walker, it took alot to keep up with him at the park. He loved to run, I would get tired before he would.

Baci has lived in many parts of the country and he was a great passenger, although he was terrified of the big 18 wheeler trucks. He absolutely enjoyed the snow of the north and the beaches of the east coast.

In 2014, my wife passed away unexpectedly from sudden health complications. He used to wait in the same spot at the same time looking at the front door waiting for her to get home. When she didn't come home from the hospital, he waited in that same spot for 2 weeks straight for hours on end, crying. After 2 weeks he finally gave up.

Ever since then he has never left my side and we become closer than I could ever imagine. The next 2 years he underwent gallstone surgery twice and tplo knee surgery, the vet's reluctant to perform the surgeries because of his age. My heart told me he was a fighter and that he would recover because of his fighting spirit.

I never imagined he would live to be 19 years old. Baci has taught me loyalty. He taught me what unconditional love is. And he taught me more about humanity than any other human i've ever know. I love you always and forever, buddy. Rest in peace now knowing that you have reunited with your mom. I'll think of you 2 forever and always.

Thank you Janie for making his last moments on Earth as peaceful and comfortable as possible.

Thank you for your constant companionship and letting me know when to feed you each early morning with a RU RU RUUUU!

I miss you sitting on the couch with me attached to my right hip and how you liked to lay flat on your daddy in the recliner giving him chomp kisses. Grandma sure misses your head on her lap, too. Thank you for the big boi love you gave us. I miss you so much!Diane ThomasBroken Arrow, OklahomaJanuary 11, 2021
Raven
10/1/2005 - 1/9/2021Raven taught me how to love again. She was with us for around 15 years and was my best friend, daily walking buddy, and confidant for some of the hardest times in my life. She was always there for me. We had a special bond. She was playful, sweet, a little sassy ;), a touch high maintenance ;), smart, and full of unconditional love. She adored walking around the neighborhood and saying hi to all the neighbors. She never met a stranger and she absolutely made my life better. I was lucky to have her as long as I did. Rest easy sweet girl and I'll see you again one day.Matt WilkinsonConcord, North CarolinaJanuary 11, 2021
Sasha
7/26/2006 - 12/27/2020Our Dear Sasha, you came into our lives so very, very unexpectedly and the mark you left will stay forever. Mom and Dad were simply going down to Yuma to celebrate Uncle Walters birthday for the weekend. On Sunday, after attending worship services, Mom and Dad returned to Walters house to visit a little more and then head back to Phoenix. Walter and his wife were having coffee on their patio and reading the paper. First, Dad join them, then Mom and as fate would have it, the only section of the paper not in use by then were the adds, so thats what mom took. To her surprise, there was only one dog listed in that entire paper and it was you. We had been looking to rescue a daschound, but that wasnt why they were in Yuma. Little did they know thats what they would be doing latter that day. Walters wife placed a call, unbeknownst to anyone else, and then informed Mom and Dad they had an appointment to see you later that day. Well, they went, they saw and made the decision they couldnt allow you to stay where you were, so you became ours.
Anyone who entered our home you made sure they felt loved. They were not there to see “your people” they were there to see you and boy did they all fall under your spell, just as we did. You graced our home and lives with love, laughter and utter joy.
After 14 years, the day you crossed that Rainbow Bridge was one of the hardest we have ever had to endure. We will miss you with every fiber of our being, but have faith that we will see and hold you again. Say hello to Dad, Heidi and Ce'Nedra for us and keep your eyes on that Bridge little one.

Love,
Your Mama and Brother

Plato
8/14/2021 - 1/9/2021Signing off from this world...what a life. From my first years as a kitten on a Vermont college campus, to my middle years in Ithan chasing chipmunks and catching burrs in my tail. These last four months of luxury have been a warm blanket of care and comfort. Who knew oat milk was so tasty? and humans did so many puzzles ? I hope I brought joy to those who loved me, confidence to my younger pet brethren, comfort to elders while they passed -all the while purring like the heavy throttle of a Harley Davidson. I’ll miss chin scratches, fancy feast, licking human’s noses when they were sleeping and chasing Daniel Tiger, that scrappy youngman . Remember me ❤️🧶🐈🥛🛌👃😻Katie SamsonArdmore, PennsylvaniaJanuary 11, 2021
Bogart
4/6/2006 - 12/31/2020I was determined to get a female dog, but the moment I laid eyes on the salt and pepper Schnauzer puppy I was smitten. He was adorable; cuddly and energetic. I brought him home and named him “Bogart”, which seemed appropriate for a dog whose mother was named Ava Gardner and whose father was Brando von der Spitzenstadt. Over the years he lived up to the name. He was smart, stubborn, and required a firm hand. Our pet cats, however, set him straight about keeping a distance from them as evidenced by the red stripe he bore across his nose one day. As a puppy, he loved playing tug of war with his dog buddy, Casey. He also loved playing with toys that made noise and would look at me with pride whenever he made the toy squeak. One Christmas, my sons bought him a toy with 18 squeakers in it and Bogart loved that toy above all else. Whenever he shredded his “squeaker toy”, he would receive a new one to chomp on. To be sure, he also enjoyed chasing a tennis ball and leaping into the air to catch his red Kong Frisbee. He kept me fit with his need for vigorous walks every day to release all the energy he carried inside his body. I always admired his proud stance; legs slightly back, chest out, head held high with the bushy eyebrows and distinctive beard, and of course his well-defined musculature. We enjoyed long hikes on many of Marin’s trails and trips to West Marin where we walked along the beach and he frolicked in the ocean. He was a beloved companion who got me through many of life’s ups and downs, especially these past several months of the pandemic, and he brought much joy to my life. I miss the eager greetings he gave me whenever I walked in the door. I will be forever grateful for his loyal companionship these past 14-1/2 years. Rest in peace my dear, sweet Bogart.Laurie V.Novato, CaliforniaJanuary 11, 2021
Maggie Joe
2/1/2008 - 1/3/2021Maggie was our beautiful German Shepard. She blessed our lives for nearly 13 years. She was the gentlest giant. She was also the Best protector of Dad, Mom, and kids. She was a good “little” sister to her pupper sisters- Princess our Beagle and Zsu Zsu our Chihuahua. She loved all her little Chihuahua friends that would climb all over her bugging her for kisses. Maggie stole our hearts. She will forever be missed.Donna WieczorekCheektowaga, New YorkJanuary 11, 2021
Casey
12/24/2008Casey was a handsome little boy that was loved by everyone who knew him.
I was blessed to have him for 13 years loving years. I was blessed that he could
peacefully pass away in my lap at home.

Maybelline
3/1/2004 - 10/6/2020Our lovely girl Maybelline left us October 6, 2020. She was 16 1/2 years old. A drop-off in the neighborhood, she came to live with us at five months old. She had an independent nature earning her the nickname “The Cat” but softened with age into the most affectionate lover of all scritches at any time. Her favorite hobbies included barking, laying outside on a chilly day, playing in the hose, Tug-of-war, and tricking her younger canine sib Tugboat out of his toys. She was entirely unphased by thunderstorms and fireworks but terrified of car rides all her life. She never acknowledged dogs on TV except for howling Huskies with whom she’d enthusiastically sing the song of her people hinting at a possible shared parentage. Despite a tendency to steal and chew wooden pottery tools in her early years, she grew to be a faithful studio companion and her presence will be painfully missed. Rest In Peace our sweet clever girl and give Iko, Uggie, and Pujols Kitty, our love across the rainbow bridge.Barbara &Chip Donovan,WoodBaton Rouge, LouisianaJanuary 11, 2021
