Those We’ve Been Honored To Love…

We’ve been in business a long time and that means we’ve suffered losses right along side our clients.  This page is dedicated to all of those who we’ve loved and lost.  Unfortunately, it will be added to far too often.  We want to say thank you for being a part of our lives and letting us be a part of yours….

“We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle; easily and often breached.  Unable to accept its awful gaps, we would still live no other way.  We cherish memory as the only
certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan.”

Emmy

Emmy was a very unique girl – she had a personality that was sometimes sweet and other times … well, let’s just say she did NOT want someone to put a leash on her.  Love you, Emmy – you won’t have to be leashed anymore.

 

Girly

Girly

And (just recently) her sister, Girly….Girly was a sweetheart by all measures.  Even when she would escape under the fence (smile).  I will never forget chasing you through the alleyways until I finally (breathless and panting myself) was able to reach you and get you in my car and take you home.  You thought it was all a game!  Miss you, our little girly-girl….

Shadow

Shadow

Shadow was very old when we met him.  Very sweet big guy who, even though he could hardly get up, he still wagged his beautiful tail and loved to eat.  We only got to care for him once …. but it was enough to fall in love.

 

Kimber

Kimber

Kimber, they will never make another dog like you.  You were found in a bathroom just skin covering bone.  They had left you with no food, no water – just your little rope toy.  What were they thinking?  Your tail was wagging when they opened that door and you had your rope-toy in your mouth.  Your tail never stopped wagging…. but your spirit was too bright to shine here here for long.  Shine on, dear one.  You will ALWAYS be loved..

 

Carly

Carly

Carly, you were such a cute, little thing.  You couldn’t see (near the end) but you still found your way to your food!  Your family took such good care of you that you were able to live such a long life (over 18 years) and you gave that love right back, didn’t you?  … see you again, little one.

Lacey

Lacey

Lacey was such a fun-loving (and treat loving!) little soul.  She would even bark to remind me for treats (if I forgot).  She was a cute little cuddler – loved attention (and we loved giving it!).  She was Carly’s sister.  They are forever together now…

Suzie

Suzie

 

Suzie, you would talk to me from the minute I walked in the door until the minute I walked out.  I enjoyed every conversation we ever had…. Until we speak again, I love you sweet girl.

Kodak

Kodak

Kodak, you were my baby.  You came to me about a year old because your owner was getting rid of you.  You were kept in a cage all day and they never had time for you they said.  No wonder you were such a needy little thing.  Always craving attention … at least until you got older and we got another dog.  But still, you never played – it would make you nervous when we’d try.  I often wonder what your life was like before we had you – but then I think it would make me sad to find out.  You stayed with us for 15 years … you were so burdened with arthritis in your hips that the injections and the pills just weren’t helping anymore.  I hope I see you again someday … then maybe we’ll finally play together.  Until then, sleep well my little girl.

Josie

Josie

Josie, you were such a happy girl.  Anyone who ever met you fell in love.  I will always remember feeding you bananas and frozen green beans (your favorite snacks).  Thank you for so many smiles.

Stash

Stash

Stash, I loved walking with you.  I feel like we explored together – every day you would find something new to sniff.  And I loved the way you would hide your treats … I found a bunch together once and called them your “Stash stash”.  Thank you, kind and gentle Friend, for letting me explore with you.

Lulu

Lulu

Lulu was such a spunky little thing for her age!  She had such a mind of her own – she knew when she wanted affection and when she didn’t.  Thank you, little girl, for the times when you let me love on you a little bit…

Mr. Magoo

Mr. Magoo

Mr. Magoo was always curled up in a little box his owner made for him.  He would act annoyed that I woke him but once he felt me petting him he would just snuggle right back down and go back to sleep.  He was sleek and beautiful and I miss seeing that little box with a cozy Mr. Magoo in it when I go to care for Nigel (his canine brother) now.

Wannabe

Wannabe

Wannabe, my baby.  I had you for 20 years and I would have loved 20 more.  My heart still breaks when I see your empty chair.  I will always remember the way you used to sit on my chest and purr and drool.  You were so patient when you were sick… you taught me so much.  I will always remember how much you loved salmon.  I will never forget you – your paw prints are forever on my heart…

Bailey

Bailey

Oh Bailey, you broke my heart.  You were just a mess from the very start and no one could find out what was wrong with you.  You brought havoc to our lives and my heart – and I loved you.  I’m so sorry I couldn’t do more for you … but you’d been through surgeries and pain and it wasn’t going to get any better.  You lived a lifetime in the year that you were here…I hope you’re healthy and happy wherever you are now.

Praline

Praline

What a gentle and loving soul Praline was.  Everyone loved her – you just couldn’t be sad around her.  She would do this little dance when it was time to eat – she couldn’t contain her joy!  She has a special place forever.
