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

Big Sir

ALWAYS: Big Sir was always a faithful fellow, and always full of love. He always greeted us with joy, always knew when we were happy, and always knew when we were sad. Always full of energy, until he became sick. Always knew when he was bad. Always knew when he was good. Always there, high or low. There can be no better and unconditional love.

We’ll miss you sweet friend, and our heart aches you ♥

Ralph Benes

Ralph fought a short but miserable battle with idiopathic epilepsy. He was only 15 months old and on 4 strong meds with little relief. He loved us unconditionally throughout. His beautiful piercing eyes , bounding joy and energy is dearly missed .Thank you Dr Thorpe for a peaceful and dignified passing

Tukcer Conn

Our sweet Tucker went across the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. Here’s hoping he’s reunited with his sister, Scamper, and that they’re playfully chasing each other again.
I saw his face, so full of character, 12 years ago when as a stray, he came up to watch me wash my truck. He saw the big “S” for Sucker tattooed on my forehead and kept coming around. After being well-fed, he decided I could be his owner. The rest is history. I miss him so much my heart hurts!

Where are you my little girl?

Where are you?

The house so empty now

I still hear faint pitter patters

I still see you sleeping on your sunny window perch

Where are you my little girl?

Early this morning through my bedroom skylight

I saw your face in the trees

little ears and nose

looking down

resting on your paws.

My fiesty fighter

shy sweet

loving little kitty

Stay in the trees always.

Rest in peace

my little girl.

Ria Bryant

Ria was a very unique and rare dog. We called her Ferdinand because she loved laying in the flowers and grass by herself. She would sniff the air and flowers around her watching everyone else go about their day. She could find any body of water wherever we were and would splash around joyfully. She was very loyal and would keep an eye on me at all times just to make sure I was okay. I planted hydrangeas in honor of Ria’s love for beautiful flowers. Words cannot describe how much she will be missed.

Allie Bruggman

Allie (March 2004-March 2017) was a corgi/cattle dog mix. She was a rescue and we adopted her in 2006. Allie had 3 previous names and we will never know her story but we were the lucky ones. She was very intelligent, well-mannered, obedient, independent, protective, and quiet. She would let us know when it was time for any affection. True to the cattle dog breed, she developed a strong attachment to her owner. My husband was her person and she would not let him out of her sight. She would wait by the door whenever he was gone.
Our final gift to her was preparing for a peaceful death. Knowing she would be leaving us was very hard. We will be forever grateful to Dr. Thorpe for helping us through this difficult and emotional time. Allie had a good life with lots of love.
