2/3/2001 - 9/28/2015Yesterday was the worst day of my entire life. I said goodbye to my precious Dino. He had declining health related to arthritis the past couple of years and he told me this past weekend that it was time to let him go. Dino has been the light of my life for nearly 15 years. He's my child, my baby. He was there for me through so many good times, and some of the worst times of my life too. A constant I could always count on. And I was his constant too. We traveled so much, made very long distance moves together, sought new adventures, enjoyed quiet time. Met new friends, learned who really weren't our friends. He has been around for the birth of each of my precious nieces and nephews, and was there for me when I said good bye to some special family and friends when they were called home.

Dino......I hear there is no love like that you have for your child. I am not the mother of a human child but i know one thing, there is no love like the love I have for you. I can't imagine loving anyone or anything more than I have loved you. I am comforted knowing you are at peace now and I was able to give you that peace. I will go on. It will get easier they say. But I will never, ever forget you or forget the joy and love you brought into my life. Bless you my sweet boy. Until we meet again.

What a lovely tribute Pam.Catherine semple - October 15, 2015
This is a beautiful tribute to a sweet pet. I was never able to meet Dino, but I definitely considered him a friend. I loved hearing his beach and pool stories. He lived a blessed life. 💜Stacie Balentine - October 15, 2015
Dear Pam,
What a beautiful tribute to your Dino! The love and joy he brought into your heart will remain with you forever. Our precious babies never leave us. They are God's gift to us that we can be so thankful for. The greatest of that gift will be meeting Dino again in heaven. It will be as joyous as the day he first came into your life. May you honor your Dino and continue to hold unto the wonderful memories.
Offering you love, hope, and support,

Dear Pam,
My tears flow for you and your precious Dino. What a beautiful life you both shared together. I can identify with you and your special bond with Dino. I too shared such comfort from my Madison. Your baby is happy and well again in the most wonderful place in heaven. Hold on to that thought ...to bring you comfort during this most difficult time. Your reunion with Dino will be the greatest gift of all time!

Warmest Sympathy,

You do not know me but I recently lost our first baby too. Our golden, Cooper, was 11.5 and truly a member of our family. I understand the horrible empty feeling you have and will have for a while...a little bit forever. I'm going on two weeks and still struggle. I am so sorry for you loss. Sending hugs.Kimberly Pope - October 1, 2015

I am so sorry for your loss. Dino looks like quite the character! I love that Dino and Scooter were both Maltese dogs and I am sure that they are romping around green meadows together at the Rainbow Bridge. It was a pleasure to meet you last night and to hear your story as well as read about him in your tribute. I love that he was such a feisty little boy and it is clear that he had a wonderful life with you. Thanks for being such a loving and caring Mom to him!

Remember the good days!

Pam, it was wonderful to meet you! What a treasure Dino must have been––and continues to be as he lives on in spirit and as he romps with friends at the Rainbow Bridge. You are a brave woman and great Mommy! I know how hard losing your furry loved one is and wish you healing.

Dino was such a sweet angel. His spirit is free to run in the clouds and watch over you always.Nicole Garrity, DVM - September 30, 2015
