My dearest sweet Mackie, you are missed beyond words. The pain of
losing you has left a void in my heart. I miss your smell
and the sound of your tags hitting together when you moved.
You were such a good boy and I couldn’t have asked for a better
dog. I know that now you are running free, free from the pain that
you suffered with. I will see you again one day! “If love
could have kept you here with me, you would have lived
forever”. Love and miss you so much, Mom

When I thought I was going to pick a little yellow Lab you picked
me instead. You ran to me and nipped at my feet and looked in my
eyes and I knew I found my new best friend. God sent you to help
me get over a pet loss before you and you did just that, and now I
have a hole in my heart since you have passed. You were the
light of my life and every good thing that has happened to
me. I will love you and will see you again when I cross that
bridge and we can play together again. God Bless and keep My
Maddie Girl. Love you for ever and ever (Pop) 09-13-2018
(Aka) Mar Mar, Sham Sham!, November, 14th 2004 - March 15th
My Precious Maddie Mae, Sham, Sham, Mar Mar. my Heart is still
broken. If I had known that morning when we dropped you off for
your surgery you wouldn’t make it I would have not taken that
chance. I woke up that morning not wanting to do the surgery but
your daddy reassured me we would talk to the dr and ask lots of
questions to ensure I felt ok about going through with having your
spleen removed. I just wanted to give you the best chance at
having the best care and a longer life without pain.. I hope you
know how much I love you and miss your beautiful little face. You
were the most loving and the smartest, most intuitive little girl
I’ve ever had the privilege of loving! Our baby girl, Gerdie Rae
your daughter misses you too! She has grieved along side me for
the past month as well. Baxter Rae misses you as well. Jezabel is
trying to take your Alpha position but I won’t let her. Please
tell my Winnie And Monty I love them too up there in Heaven. I
pray that you were the one who decided you were ready to go
because the dr said you got through the surgery just fine but then
your heart just stopped. I’m so sorry baby girl. I did not
know how sick you really were. Forever in my heart. Your mommy.
My beautiful brown baby whose one of many nicknames was Maggastino
or Stinos for short. You were part of our family for longer
than any of your fur sisters. You were only 2 years old when
we brought you home. When we had to send you to the bridge
you were 14 yrs old and we knew you weren't happy any more.
You knew all three of the Pointers we had, Masey, Dixie and
Suzie. Masey and Dixie were already at the bridge and
I pray that you are all together. You were the exception to
3 Pointers, a chocolate lab/German Shorthair mix with beautiful
fur and a beautiful inside to match. So glad you were part
of our lives for twelve years and to say I miss you is an
understatement. I still look for you at the window when I
come home from work. I also miss our walks thru the
neighborhood and the visits to the park. You always were so
excited when the leashes came out! You were with us for so many
things in life, hugging you always made things better.
Sickness did not enter your life until the last months you were
here. I know you tried everyday, but now you can rest
easy. Have fun with Masey and Dixie. Someday we will
all be together. I miss you so much, but the things that
keeps me going is knowing I will see you (and your sisters) at the
bridge someday, that you are not alone and you are happy and no
longer in any pain..
We will always love you Stinos.
Someday I will get to hug my big brown baby again.
Love you forever
Lori and Rand Thompson
Wechsler, 2002 - August 11 2018
We lost you on August 11, 2018 between 6 and 7 pm. I did not have
time to mourn you properly because so much was happening and we
were all in shock. We miss you and know you could not stay with us
any longer. I am so grateful for the time to have had you in our
lives. You were a soulmate to me even after I thought I could not
have another one.
You were always there underfoot and visiting wherever I would go.
You were stubborn and very loving. An enigma in everything nothing
made sense at times. The dead babies in your belly. oh my the
things you must have been through. We got you and almost lost you
the same day and then you choose to find us again and never leave
us until the end. I still remember you coming back from your
adventure with your nose bitten up by red ants. love you,
You stayed and we took care of you. We let you be and you built
trust in us. So many memories I remember you getting out of the
yard and rat hunting next door. I remember you getting out of the
back yard and jumping on my lap in the front yard when I was
gardening.. How funny and adorable you were. I remember you always
leading Skyla to the garbage cans , even opening up the cabinet
door where we hide the garbage can. Smart and tricky. You
certainly were food driven. We always thought we would know when
it was your time when you wouldn't eat anymore but you tricked us.
On our way to the emergency vet on the way out of the house Alie
gave you a huge wad of turkey and you ate it all. You never
stopped looking for me in the bathroom, where I would give you
great rubs. Or looking for me in the garage. You would go around
the whole garage until you found me waiting at the door.
There aren't enough words to describe all the loving and quirky
things you've done.
I, we miss you so much. You were sweetness itself.
Mommy, Daddy, Alie, Matt
My precious Mater. You brought joy to our lives, but especially
your dad. You knew when he was up, and a Huge comfort when he was
down. Where there was a routine, now there is just empty space and
sadness. Never have I ever had a dog (hooman) like you. A piece of
my heart is gone. I love you Mater!!
Max - aka Boo,
08/22/1999 - 06/12/2013
Max it’s been 5 years since you left us baby boy. So much has
happened. You were so so special to us, but especially me
and the “momma” . I can still see her feeding you your
nightly yogurt whip. I know you know we lost her and I know you’re
up there keeping her company to. I miss you so much. You
were always by my side for 13 years and just love me so
much. I got another puppy his name was Murphy
but just recently lost him to. I know he’s up there with
you and buddy . I love and miss you both so so
much Max. I will see you all someday.
03/18/09 - 10/09/18
The strongest boy I ever met (person or dog). He fought the good
fight, he was a soldier, so strong, so loyal, so loved, and so
loving. He was a great, majestic, beautiful creature that awed
anyone he met! He was so smart and so stubborn. He was my second
son and my very best friend. There can and will never be another.
I know you are running and jumping and playing again with all the
other pets waiting for their owners. I know your hurt is gone and
I know you can see me and hear me here on earth. I have seen the
signs you have sent me that you are ok. I love you Max with all my
heart now and for always and you hold a piece of my heart that can
only be mended once we are together again.
Dog, 2/25/06 - 5/9/18
A feisty little black dog with an intimidating growling smile,
that made him just misunderstood. You were truly a mans best
friend and fierce protector. A true gift from God.
Thank you for being such a loyal and loving companion to my best
friend. His loyalty to you as unconditional as yours for
him. Always there to comfort, listen, watch TV, be a lap
buddy and protector of your loving and ever faithful Master.
You were his little Harley dog.
Although his heart is broken without you, he knows that you are
free from pain and will patiently be waiting for him as you always
did each day and night.
Until you meet again...run free Max, pee on everything, find and
play with your old friend Cinnamon, and rest peacefully knowing
how much you are loved and missed. Send your Daddy signs
that you are ok every once in awhile to help mend his heart.
Love ya Max, rest easy. Love, Aunt Melinda
Meeko was not only my Leopard Gecko, I felt like he was my child.
I used to look forward to coming home from work just to spend time
with him. Even though what happened was an accident I can’t help
but blame myself for what happened, in hopes that he could forgive
me and that I could forgive myself. He was my first reptile and i
did all the research in the world before I got him, just to make
sure I could care for him properly. The pain hurts so much right
now but I know one day I will be able to look back and smile on
the good memories and joy he brought me. Deep down I know that he
knew I Loved him and that I would do anything to protect him. I
just want to say I Love you My Meeko and sleep peacefully, you
have bought nothing but joy to my life and I will cherish our
Meesh, May 5,
2001 - December 29, 2017
I remember like it was yesterday...when a neighbor mentioned she
knew someone that had taken in a stray cat that gave birth to
kittens at their home and she was trying to find homes for all of
them before taking them to the humane society. You were the
biggest and fluffiest one out of all 5 kittens. I picked you up
and looked at your tiny beautiful face and took you home. We had
just moved into a new home and our boys were 5+8 and were having a
hard time adjusting to our new life. They both fell in love with
you the moment they laid their eyes on you. I'll never forget how
much joy you brought to their hearts and the smiles you put on
their faces for over 16 years. We watched you grow up into a
beautiful magnificent gentle giant. I remember playing hide and
seek with you, how much you loved playing with string and bouncy
balls. You were our King, and everything was always on your terms.
You never liked to be held for very long periods, never was the
type to just come and sit on our laps but instead always welcomed
a armpit scratch, belly and back rub. You loved being brushed
absolutely hated taking baths and as you got older and bigger it
would take 2 people to hold you when it came down to bath time.
You never complained about anything, even when you were sick. You
loved going out for walks in the backyard and would spend 5
minutes just rolling around on the patio before walking to the
garden to sniff and chew grass. All we had to say was "Meesh do
you want to go outside?" and you would run and cry to the back
door. You waited patiently for your favorite meals like turkey
cooking in the oven, tuna, chicken and beef. We miss your big
green eyes and hearing your meows and chirps and how you always
greeted us at the door every time we came home. You even tolerated
your new little brother Cativo when we brought him home who misses
you very much. Every so often you would glide along our legs just
to let us know that you were there and would give us blinks with
your beautiful green eyes whenever we talked to you. Just your
presence in the room was good enough for all of us. You were a
child to hubby and I and a brother to our sons. Thank you for
giving us another Christmas together as a family. Our hearts are
broken as you are no longer here with us but there is some comfort
in knowing that you are no longer in any pain or suffering. Thank
you for giving us all an opportunity to say our last good byes and
to tell you how much we love you and to thank you for being such
beautiful part of our lives. You will never be forgotten and will
always be held in a very special place in our hearts forever. Hugs
To You Meesh from MOM, DAD, PETER, ANTHONY AND Your Little Brother
My little princess died one month ago. She was around eleven.
Adopting her was the best decision I've ever made. She was a
lovely and caring little dog and we developed a very special
relationship. I miss you every single day, every single hour. I
thank God you crossed my way and I know that one day we'll see
each other again. In the meantime, I'll never forget you. A piece
of my heart is yours forever. Mami te quiere mucho, Pizquito.

Mickey Maroo the Bronxbomber 2004-2018, our gentle and loving
chocolate lab, left us this morning for the rainbow bridge. I
still remember him running towards me with wild eyes when he was a
puppy. He chose us then and we are so happy he did. We'll miss him
so much and can't imagine a day without our buddy. I hope you can
run, play and especially swim in your new home my friend.
Millie, Age 13
1/2 years - August 3rd 2018
Millie - you left before I was ready, but my heart would never
have been ready to lose you.
I remember the day I fist saw you - thin and unsure and scared of
where you had ended up. But it didn't take too long for us to fall
in love with each other and for you to become the centre of our
Remember all the times I struggled to get you to eat? So I handfed
you and I think you really liked that because you'd eat from your
bowl for everyone else.
Remember the day that Fonzie joined our little family - you
immediately let him know that 'Girls Rule' and he was happy to let
you be the boss. Then, when you lost your hearing he became your
guide in so many way - if he reacted to something it was your
signal to react too and you grew to depend on him for so much -
but you were still the boss!
Remember making the journey from Ireland to live in Canada in
April 2013? When we picked you up at the airport we heard there
had been a ferret on your flight - my heart stopped as I knew
you'd probably barked at the poor creature every second of the
Yes, you loved to bark! Everything was a reason to bark. In fact,
sometimes nothing was a reason to bark but you barked anyway -
everyone knew when you were around!
When you became ill with kidney disease in February I vowed to do
everything I could to help you. Then, in March, we learned that
you had a spinal tumour. But that didn't stop you fighting and it
didn't stop me fighting right alongside you - together we tried
everything possible to help you, took you everywhere that offered
you help or relief, cared for you 24/7 with total dedication. But
it wasn't enough Millie, it wasn't enough.
You were growing tired, your back legs were letting you down, the
kidney disease was making you feel sick, you couldn't go for
walks, you couldn't jump on the furniture, you couldn't climb the
steps. Eventually your little body was trembling and jerking more
and more and you couldn't even sleep properly. And you couldn't
howl - your voice had changed - how I cried when I saw you trying
to howl but no sound came.
The decision to grant you your wings was not an easy one Millie. I
would have continued to care for you forever. My head and my heart
screamed at each other for weeks, but while they were screaming
you were growing more tired and I knew I had to keep the promise I
had made to you many years ago that I would never let you suffer.
Your passing was so peaceful and gentle as you lay on my lap with
Daddy beside you and Fonzie nearby keeping a close eye on the vet.
Did you know that as you left this world you took with you the
piece of my heart that will always belong to you? Did you know
that the rest of my heart shattered in a million pieces? Did you
know that Daddy took you to Pet Heaven himself and laid you in the
cremation chamber as he didn't want any stranger to be the last to
touch you? Did you know that Fonzie sniffed your beautiful face
before you left the house and that his little canine heart also
broke in two?
Do you know how much we miss you Millie? Do you know how much we
loved you and that we always will? Do you know that Daddy gave me
a locket with some of your ashes that I wear close to my heart so
that I can feel that you're still with me?
Millie - I want to thank you for all the love and joy you brought
into our lives. I want to thank you for loving us so completely
and for accepting our complete love in return. I promise you baby
girl that you will never be forgotten, I promise to keep your
memory alive in everyway I can no matter where I am.
Watch over Daddy, Fonzie and me until our time comes to be with
you again. But have all the fun you haven't been able to have
since you got sick - be happy baby girl, be healthy and well and
hold that piece of my heart that went with you until the day when
I see you again and my heart will be whole once more. I love you

Moe, the gentle giant, the warrior,the most handsome, and best
You came to our lives in the summer evening on 25 August 2010. You
chose Anna, your best buddy, and us to be your family. You were
the most awesome kitty we had ever known. You were a peaceful boy,
yet knew how to fight like a warrior.
You moved with us to Hawaii in 2011. You made holes in the screen
door to let yourself out to Hawaiian adventures. We were tired of
changing a screen door one after another. We just let you out.
Luckily, We lived in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood. You went
to walk along the ocean and visited my friend's cats all the
time. Your mighty paws and your Jackie Chan move would allow
you to jump up and down our lanai. You would sit and watch the
birds and trees under the plumeria tree. Some day, you just went
and enjoyed the weather for a bit.
Moe, you were the best buddy to Anna. Your favorite place to sleep
was on the top of her head. You gave us so much joy and happiness.
You were a part of Anna's childhood.
Moe,you fought until the end. Only three weeks of your normal
check-up, you left us so abruptly. We fought with you all the way,
but the illness just overpowered you.
Moe, you passed in the arm of your best buddy and me. We love you
so much. Our hearts are so broken.
Moe, we will never forget how soft your fur was, how large and
powerful your paws were, and the cuddling love you gave to us.
Moe, we hope that you joined Max, your brother and enjoy every day
Thank you for bringing love and joy to our lives. Our hearts have
expanded with love and compassion because of you.
Until we see you again, my beloved Moe....
You picked us to share your life with for two years. You brought
out the best in all of us. Most of all we will miss you plopping
next to us in bed at night. We miss you and will love you forever

To our Princess, Missy Meow:
You started life as a stray and passed away a Princess.
You were a part of our family for the past 15 years and the Prima
Donna of our home. You were a tough cookie and your brothers and
sisters knew not to mess with you. However, your sweet and
loving side became more apparent as you aged.
You have left your paw prints in our hearts and you will be
Go mimi our little girl.
We love you mucho.

Misty, 06/2006 -
Misty was a sweet loving soul. She loved us all unconditionally.
Words cannot express how she made us feel. Her love will remain
within us for the rest of our lives.
05/16/11 - 05/01/15
Mittens, I will always remember the day you were born. I needed
you just as much as you needed me. Your life on earth was cut
short but one day we will be together, forever. I love you
Moe Davis, 3/20/2001 - 3/18/2018
Oh, Moe Moe (Tiny)......our sweet boy. We just thought we rescued
you all those years ago, but instead you totally rescued us and
quickly stole our hearts. You helped us through some dark days and
always met us at the door with your ‘happy Moe dance’ and the need
for an immediate hug and kiss to make us laugh. You were ‘our
boy’, especially Daddy’s. You two had a bond like no other and we
always said Daddy was ‘your boy’. These first few days without you
here are very hard for us, we miss you so much. You were the
common link that bound all of our family together. You knew our
first pup, Tater along with Poke, Buddie, Inky, Booger, Cali and
Twinkie who were all there to welcome you over the Rainbow Bridge.
We are very sure all of you are playing together now in the
greenest of fields. You were such a great big brother to Peas
& Carrots and sweetly tolerated your biggest fan, your little
sis Zuzu. You slept between us every night; body under the covers,
head on the pillow and now your spot is so empty. Watch over
us precious boy until we all can be together again. We will never,
ever forget you.
We will love you always,
Mommy, Daddy, Peas & Carrots and Zuzu.

Dearest Molly, I will Never Forget The night You Left Us, A very
Sad Sad Night. I will always remember you on all of our very
special Moments, When I came home you were always there to greet
me with your tail going 100 miles per hour. I hated to see you go
but I Pray to God you are in a better place with no more aches and
pains and having fun, There is nothing more special of all the
unconditional Love you gave to me. You are gone now but will NEVER
be forgotten. I hope this Rainbow Bridge that you went to takes
very good care of my Loveable Molly. I hope you know that I will
LOVE you FOREVER. Love you so Very Much.
10/17/05 - 06/28/18
Our dearest Molly, you are so very missed and beloved to us
You were taken much too soon but you are now in a much better
place, with no pain or suffering.
We can't stop thinking about you and will take comfort in knowing
that we will see you again some day.
Always our love,
Your Mommy and Auntie

Monet was my little buddy from day one. Met him in September
2005 when he was just 2 years old. He was as a friend stated: he
was one of the most stately, sweet, cuddly, vivacious, cranky,
adorable Shih tzus she had ever known. And that described
him perfectly. Cranky and very lovable at the same time.
I thought I had more time to share with him. He had been so
healthy for most of his life that I mistakenly thought he would be
here much longer than he was. He experienced more of the world
than some of the people I know though in that time - he lived in
several cities and in at least 4 different states across the US
(CA, FL, GA and LA). He had been to almost 20 different
states and drove with me cross country 3 times. He was a
little reluctant to be the traveler he became over the
Goodbye to my special friend. This is where our roads take
us to different places. Hope to see you again someday!!!!
12/28/2013 - 07/27/2018
I miss you so much Murphy. 4 years just isn’t enough time. I still
remember me and Charlie going to the airport to pick you up.
All you could see was this adorable puppy with huge paws looking
out of the crate. You sooo so adorable. I knew I loved
you from just looking at the pictures Judy had sent me, but when I
saw you that day my heart was completely taken I loved you
from the start. I wish everyone could see how you were with
me, a 175lb goofy silly teddy bear who liked to be hugged
and petted. I can see you sucking on your peanut
butter Kong and perfectly content for the 15 minutes it took you
to get every bit of that beanie butter out of it. I wish I
could turn back time and do things better because you
deserved that. There are truly know words to express the
sadness and loss I feel not having you here. You loved me
unconditionally and was there every time I needed you to be.
I miss your slobbery kisses. I even miss the bone crushing
experience whenever you decided to sit on me.. you wanted to be a
lapdog so badly☺️ I know You’re up there running and playing with
Max and Buddy and alll the rest of the dogs up there and I find
peace in that. I love you so much and will miss you forever
Pup-pup. Your momma.
(pup-pup), 12-28-2013 - 7-27-2018
I’m so sorry puppy, 4 years just wasn’t enough time. I
thought I’d have you here with me for so much longer then
this. I miss you so much and it’s only been two days.
I love you and will miss you forever my beautiful boy. I
know you’re up there running around and playing with Max and Buddy
and all the other dogs. Rest In Peace baby your momma loves
Mylo, 10th May
2008 - 11th September 2018
My best friend, Maylo.
You were taken suddenly last night, 11th Sept 18, aged 10 and 3
Mylo woke me up early hours with heavy rapid breathing, he was a
king Charles cavalier and had minor problems supposedly related to
the breed, nothing life threatening, I let him outside to the
garden at 6am and he was vomiting and falling over so I knew
something wasn’t right, but he had been sick before and always
been fine shortly after, He didn't seem to be getting any better
and wouldn't drink or eat anything, and he loved his grub.
I took him to the vets at lunchtime and she checked him over, gave
him an anti sickness injection and antibiotic injection as she
thought his stomach was very tender and he may have had an
infection, said his heart sounded fine and the heavy breathing and
nausea was due to high temperature and feeling sick, said he would
be fine and if no improvement to bring him back the next day.
I left the vet satisfied and trusting their judgement so I brought
him home and he progressively got worse throughout the day,
wouldn’t move, drink, eat anything and his breathing was getting
worse, wherever he fell he just lay there, struggling yet his tail
would still wag when i was beside him, by evening I thought enough
was enough and called the emergency vets who told me to bring him
in, Mylo was lying out in the garden at this point after dragging
himself out and within the time it took me to get inside and get
dressed when I went back outside to get him in the car and noticed
his heavy breathing had stopped, i went over and no tail wag, he
was lifeless, I was in shock, no signs of life at all yet I tried
to save him, i still don’t know why, how, was he poisoned, so many
questions left unanswered, he was perfectly fine and his usual
self the day before running around, begging for food, doing what
I’m distraught and can’t stop crying, I should have acted faster
but the comfort of knowing he didn't suffer for long may help,
just not right now, rest in peace my little man, I love you more
than words can say xx
