4/29/2020 - 3/23/2020Ivey, you were a beautiful dog, eager to please and full of energy. You were always hungry and would happily eat until ready to burst at the seams. When we fed you too much because we misread the instruction label, you tried so hard to eat all the food. You would sit at your food bowl, upset you could not eat anymore and whimper that your stomach was not bigger. When we went biking or hiking you were a faithful runner. Always at our side and just happy to be a family. You also loved chipmunks, squirrels, and most especially, rabbits. I can still remember when you caught your two rabbits. You were so excited to bring them to us – even though we might not have been as excited. What we will remember most about you is your love of water. You would run through the water to get your ball or sticks or just sit in the water all day and be completely at peace.
Ivey, you gave us many years of love, companionship, and comfort.
Be at peace Ivey, may you chase rabbits in heaven, swim when you are hot, and eat until content.
Miss you always xoxo

I can only imagine how amazing she was given the beautiful tribute above. All of the Matchetts are sending you love and every warm and brilliant memory to fill the quiet. With all the loving hugs we can give from here - Tiffany, Ian, Kellan and Ella.Tiffany Matchett - April 15, 2020
It's funny how animals make their way deep into our hearts. So sorry for you loss and know that Ivey is, indeed, chasing rabbits on the otherside of the 'rainbow bridge'.Liz & Fran Cook-Mahood - April 10, 2020
Sending you peace and comfort during this time. We will miss walking Ivy and being amazed by her obedience and tricks. I will never forget her sitting in front of the glass door staring at Tiger Lilly, hoping she would come out. May you have wonderful memories of this special pet. Love, Jill, Pat and Fiona.Jill Smith - April 5, 2020
What a beautiful tribute!! Ivy was so devoted to you it was beautiful to behold. Every time she was here she was checking in the azaleas to see if her rabbit had returned. Now she can check for that rabbit all day every day. What a joy she was. Love, MomCAROL SAPIENZA - April 2, 2020
