The first time we ever saw you at the cat show, we fell in love
with you! This adorable fluffy orange kitty with the
smoosh face and big golden eyes full of fun and
playfulness. You were everyone's friend, you followed me
room to room. You and Gizmo had a hate relationship up
until the end and then in the end, you two could sit on the same
bed together in peace finally at last. You were sick for a
long time and the vets could never figure out what was
wrong. I know you are with the Lord now and loving every
minute of it. You always liked to be petted and I long to
pet you now and hold you. I miss you so much, we all
do. Someday, I will see you again and when I do, get ready
for me to grab and hold you and love on you with lots of
kisses. I love you so much. Mom, Dad, Heather,
Faith, Buttercup, Molly, Cookie, Bubba, Skyler and
Stirling. Oh and we just lost Sully, you will see him in
Heaven with you. He was a huge part of our family
too. Hug him for us please. xo

Raphie was a gorgeous Ragdoll. He had the
best personality of any cat I have ever seen or owned. He
was full of life and talked all the time. He would answer
you when you called him. He loved to ride in the car and
would sneak out of the house when you didn't know it. He
went through many trials and tribulations with me and loved me
as much as I loved him. He did head bumps to show me how
much he loved me and we would hold heads for a long time.
He was my heart. He broke his jaw two years ago running through
the house and I took him to UGA vet school It was over
$8000 to try and fix it. It was always crooked. He
also had asthma and it got worse and the nebulizer would not
work. When the vet X-rayed him he had a mass that had
grown over the past two years. I took him to UGA vet
school and upon having a CT scan, the tumor was wrapped around
his larynx, as well as vessels in his thoracic region. His
liver had cancer cells. I did not want him to undergo any
more, so I went and got him and brought him home. I had to
take him yesterday to be put to sleep. I held him in my
arms while he crossed to Rainbow Bridge. He was my
Toothead and I will never forget him. Run and play hard,
sweet boy. Mom will always love you!

Last November we lost our beloved miniature poodle, Reggie. He was
19 1/2 years old. Reggie, being a poodle, was very smart. He
loved going for walks, not for the walk, but for the chance for
new smells along the way. This required stopping every few
feet for a new smell. He was a special dog and we miss him every
day. We love you Reggie.

To my dear cat named Rigley.
A beloved companion to my daughter
And to myself over many years
I absolutely loved my German Short Haired Pointer more than any
pet I've ever had. Roani was my loyal companion.
After she passed I even made a imovie of her. Now I am
feeling guilty that I had her put to sleep by my Vet.
She could not control her bows, was very restless especially
at night, she fell on the floors constantly and could not get up
with help. We had given her several rounds of
antibiotics, plenty of pro-biotics as well. I had paid
for a very expensive ultrasound which did not show anything but a
somewhat swollen pancreas. She had some strange liver
readings from the blood test. We picked up all our area rugs to
have cleaned and just let her live for about six months like
this. Short of having a biopsy of her colon, I am not
sure what else could be done. The Vet had pretty much given up.
The Saturday morning we had her put down she had pooped in every
corner of her crate. Nevertheless forever is forever, and
now I feel guilty for putting her down. I had her cremated
and she has a special corner in my office with photos of
her. I miss her so much. No one really understands the depth
of my grief. My daughter's dog is giving me some support by
staying her, yet I still feel the sting of her loss a month
later. She was adorable and we loved each other.

Rocky: A wonderful cat that had unconditional love for me
the owner and my family.
Always greet me in morning and when I came home for work.
Would always lay on my lap in the evenings at night.
He will be truly missed by me.

Our sweet Rosebud,
You were given to us with so many health problems, we didn't think
you would make it to your first year. You had the sweetest
wrinkles on your forehead and you tried your best to please us and
you always did. I was always torn watching you limp around
the house but you were Gabby's best friend and and sister and such
a good dog. Your fur was so soft and your personality was so
sweet. You were a happy dog and seemed to smile at us.
You didn't start swimming with us until your last year of life for
some reason and then you loved it. Precious girl, I can't
wait to see you again and pet you and you are not hurting
anymore. No more pain, Jesus took care of that. We
love you and will see you again someday. Love, Mom, Dad,
Heather, Faith, Charlie and fur bros and sisters.
