Miss. Belle your memory will live forever in our home. You were far more than a pet, you were a valued family member. You took taking care of me on as your “job” and I will be forever grateful. We welcomed you into our lives shortly after the passing of my father, you were my savior. You even shared the same birthday as the wonderful man you never met. I miss you more than words can express. Please run pain free and happily over the Rainbow Bridge.

Our family is devastated by the loss of our sweet, Callie girl. She was loved beyond words as a member of our family. Her life hasn’t always been a good one. Her first two years, she found herself chained to a tree, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with little shelter, food and water. Thankfully, with help from my Mother-in-law, she was able to escape those conditions and live the rest of her life with us. Callie has been a part of our family for 11 years and even after the neglect and mistreatment of humans she has always shown nothing but love, kindness and loyalty. In our home she was known as the “Best girl dog in the world” and was told regularly. Saying goodbye to her was one of the hardest things we’ve ever done but we knew it was her time to cross over. We take comfort in knowing that many will welcome her upon her arrival at the Rainbow Bridge and that her pain is gone.

We love you so much, sweet girl. You will be forever missed and never forgotten. You are etched in our hearts and souls and we can never thank you enough for the love that you provided our family.

All our love,

Kara, Jay, Ethan and Jake

Tayto on lap

Our Tayto appeared one chilly night on our front porch, where we’d left some food out for neighbor cats, and we immediately fell in love with her. For the next ten months, she returned every single night and slowly became more comfortable and affectionate, until we felt the time was right to bring her inside to live with us. She took a few months to acclimate and learn to use a litter box, but then she just bloomed and absolutely loved being an inside cat. She was incredibly smart and playful, and she was an amazing nurse and companion to our other, elderly cat during his final months. All she wanted was to be near us and cuddle — so much so that we nicknamed her Noodle, for how much she loved to “canoodle.”

She was the bright light in our lives and made us happy every single day. With her, hard days were easier and easy days even better. She gave us three wonderful years of nonstop love, but then her beautiful little heart just gave out, and we had to suddenly let her go. As Robert Frost wrote, “Nothing gold can stay,” and without question, our little Tayto was truly golden through and through. A thousand years wouldn’t have been enough, but we are thankful for every single second we had with our sweet girl.

Kringle was an amazing little fellow with a big spirit and a mind of his own. When he lost his best buddy, Lullabies, in the summer of 2014, he chose to live on with spirited engagement. He was truly blessed with good health, good mobility, a good appetite and strong curiosity right up to the last week of his near 21 years of age.
He had independence of spirit which both made me smile and reassured me that his spirit was fine. If I asked something of him that he did not want to do—like take vitamins or spray his teeth & gums–, he would “snort” at me. It was his favorite way of expressing his independence, and it always made me smile…..
About two weeks ago, life suddenly became difficult for him. He announced that he did not want medical intervention and further shared that he felt his life was “complete”. He was ready to join his five Pack buddies who were waiting for him in the Meadow. He announced that he wanted to go naturally as long as it was not too painful. He faced all bravely, and only at the very end did he ask for help over the last hill standing between him and release. As he had lived with spirited engagement, so he passed on to his new life peacefully and without hesitation.
I will hold Kringle’s 21 years of companionship in my heart forever, and it will always bring a smile to my face………
