Cyrene Tickle 2

Our beautiful, amazing girl came to us on December 15th 2002 and left us on her own terms this December day. She was the most beautiful soul I have ever met. She was the puppy that we weren’t getting. She was the puppy who healed our hearts. She was full of life and joy and herself. She was our first agility dog and little did we know how talented she really was. She was with us every day for the last 15 years. Her suffering ended quickly without the assistance of the vet but in the comfort of our home and our love. We are both devastated at her passing. Please pray for us as we mourn her passing and her beautiful, everlasting soul.

Widget Powers

Widget was a goofy, ill-behaved, friendly and athletic little dog.
She will be missed for a good long time to come. She added
a lot to our family. We loved that spotted wisp… what a great dog!

Dema

In honor of Dema Lynn:

We “saved” you from the kennel, but we all know that it was you that provided us a gift. You always lived by your own rules (pet when you want to be petted), and always had an independent spirit. You were loyal, silly, lovable and cute. Your life was shorter than we all would have liked, but you experienced it with grace and confidence. Even at your lowest, you never let it show.

You were loved whole heartedly, and you will be missed more than you know. Please say hello to the friends and family that we’ve lost. Now may you be free to chase all the squirrels that you want!!

Love,

Derrick, Alyica, and Samba (and even the cats)

Tiki Goodloe

We had to say goodbye to this very fine family member today. She gave over 14 years of unconditional love and joy (with a little mischief mixed in). And for this we are so grateful. We will miss you Tiki Barber.

Winston Kaslusky

Sunday night my wife and I lost our little friend Winston who shared our life for the past ten years. He was a loving little soul who crept into our hearts with his sweet greetings when we came home and his gentle presence near us as we carried out our day. Winston came to us from a shelter at the age of about 5 or 6 and had a wonderful life with us for 10 years. Winston would stand by his toy mouse and ask us to play or tap our arm for a chase with the laser light. Each morning after breakfast he would dash into the bathroom to wait for his morning brushing which he relished. He came down with cancer in June and my wife gave him loving care until she knew it was time to put him to sleep before he was in pain. He spent his last days watching the birds at the feeders out the window and sleeping on our bed at night. His passing leaves a hole in our heart. We will enjoy memories of our dear little friend and adopted member of our family.

We said goodbye to our sweet, goofy Maize today. Our hearts are hurting but we are grateful that she can run and swim to her heart’s content, eat whatever she wants to and is reunited with her buddy Butters. Oh how we loved our sweet, sweet girl. We will miss her so….

Hi,

This clip says it better than anything I could write.

To my Watson, who I lost in September.

Butters Savides

“We sent our sweet Butters to Rainbow Bridge on October 24. He went peacefully and with dignity. He is now free to “go astray” as he loved to do – oh how he loved his walks. We will always be grateful for his devotion – we will miss our good boy.”

Snoopy Roper

We let Snoopy go on June 25th and it was as easy for my sweet boy as I hoped it would be.
Snoopy hated car rides. He loved being home with our other dog, cats and his chickens. He enjoyed watching the neighbor boys play basketball and walking to the mailbox with another neighbor. He wasn’t the smartest dog – took us 11 years to teach him to bark for a treat but he had the biggest heart and is missed by many.

Harley Towberman

Our precious Harley, who suffered with bone cancer, went to heaven last week. We are very blessed by God to have shared eleven years of life… loving and adoring Harley.

He was so very human to us. Harley loved so deeply, desired to heal anyone in need that was in his presence, had the honorable soul of a saint, and taught us how to feel real joy in the moment. The gift of his unconditional love will always be with us.

Nine years ago when we lost our eighteen year old treasured kitty Isabelle, whom we still miss, we felt her continued presence in little two year old Harley because she helped raise him. Now, we have our little Toby, Harley’s Golden brother who is five years old, remaining with us, who is carrying on Harley’s living legacy because Harley raised Toby from a pup and instilled his beautiful ways in his little brother.

We are grieving and yet feel totally blessed to have had Harley’s mind, body and soul join us in this life. We will deeply love Harley forever.

With gratitude for your support and prayers,

Tom and Wanda
