“Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love and loyalty. They depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big.”

You may be gone from my sight, but you will never leave my heart.

Thank you for all that you have taught me. You have made me who I am today.

Till we meet again – “MY GIRL”

My sweet Sonny boy, my heart dog, my best friend, my exercise buddy , my coworker and just the best boy you’ll ever meet. I’m so thankful to have had shared adventures, walks and so much love with him. My sweet boy battled cancer 3 times. This last time it was an inoperable giant tumor that was 1/2 the size of his liver. We tried radiation but it just made my sweet boy sick. Three months later he was jaundice and had a stroke that would ultimately take his life . I miss him so very much. So much of my daily routine is focused around Sonny that I just don’t know what to do with myself. I miss you so very much my sweet boy. I’ll never stop missing you. I’ll never stop loving you. Thank you for all of the years of friendship. Rest easy my sweet Sonchip. Mommy loves you. We’ll pick up those walks on the other side.

Something was wrong with our Silky Brown Princess for 3 years but since the occasional gimpiness and rare but horrifying Bambi on ice falls didn’t progress-tail still wagged and she still smiled-we just had to treasure every minute we had, and watch and wait-as the muzzle and brow sent out their silver warnings. On June 18th, she went outside as usual, came back in and collapsed. Never got up again. I could support her forequarters and head for a weakly lapped drink every couple hours. Each time made her weaker. I prayed she’d last till my husband returned from helping our granddaughter move. She was his lap dog. He slept on the floor by her side that night. It took hours to find a vet who would come to the car so we could be with her. Hot as blazes. And a big hole to dig after. Our other two fur babies turned their noses in the direction she’d gone off in the car for weeks and waited. Then waited on the other side of their yard closest to her grave for more weeks. I don’t know if it is the expected yet unexpected suddenness of her passing, a space to mourn the grief and pain 2020 has brought, but we are both still waylaid by fresh and raw grief. I think our other two dogs, both seniors, miss her still, too. There are other beloved pets with her over the Rainbow Bridge, but this loss has been one I’m just not getting through this very well

Gordo James Sheldon

I lost my sweet angel baby Gordo James The vet said he had a cancerous tumor on his throat .The worst news you could ever hear “There is nothing that can be done.” So I made the hardest, gut wrenching decision and said a very tearful goodbye to my sweet angel boy. I come into our lives to teach us about love and loyalty. They depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big.”

Lord, Zach is such a gentle soul; please welcome him into your arms and onto your lap. I pray that his transition was peaceful and he feels my love for him. Thank you for allowing me the time with Zach that I had – he was such a blessing to life. Please let me see Zach again, at Rainbow Bridge.

They say energy can not be created or destroyed, it only transforms… I believe that Coco’s energy is still alive somewhere in the universe, it is still connected to my heart, the energy of his soul only moved from our earthly space. I want to believe that this separation is something temporary, perhaps a mere illusion. Our love has not died. Our bond has not died. What we had and have cannot be touched by death. Wait for me in heaven my angel. We will meet again… If love had given you years of life you would have been immortal

Harley was my first dog as an adult and such a sweet and sensitive little Maltese. I wanted him to have a playmate so Davidson entered our life and they both became my heart dogs. Thru a divorce and Cancer they were there to bring so much joy and entertainment. Sadly we lost Harley to a horrific dog attack and our lives were shattered beyond comprehension. Davidson grieved, I believe until the end of his life 12/27/2019. Our beach walks and golf cart rides gone forever; but the pictures, albums of such fun and unconditional love remain in my heart forever

Gibby “Bug”

I made the rainbow out of play-doh while Gibby( aka Bug) was still with me, as well as his paw prints in soft clay.The Vet sent me his ink prints a few days after. There was also (1) bud on my plat that bloomed when Gibby’s ashes came home, I have since bought another plant and keep it on the table and call it Gibby’s Garden. Thank you

My soulmate, best friend and heart dog.
You were my constant companion and the one I could always count on.
You brought me so much happiness and made me laugh with the funny things you would do.
We had such a connection and you showed me how to love and be loved unconditionally.
Our love and bond is too strong to be broken. I know you are still with me.
I hope you know how much you are loved and missed. We were always together and now everything I do reminds me you aren’t here anymore. You will always be loved and always be missed.
You are my Angel sent to look after me.
And you did that to perfection.
Thank you for loving me the way you did.
Thank you for taking care of me. Thank you for everything. I’m so lucky to have had you in my life.
I always told you that you are the best dog in the whole world. And I meant that with all of my heart.
As you took your last breath, and my heart broke, I held you and kissed you and told you that I love you.
I have never felt pain like this. But without a second of doubt, you are worth it. Loving you and sharing our lives is so worth the pain.
I carry you with me everyday in my heart.
Wait for me my beautiful boy. I can’t wait till we are together again one day and you come running to me for a never ending cuddle and a million kisses. Then we are truly together forever.
Until that day my loving, caring and loyal Ozzie. I love you sweetheart

At 3:45 pm on October 30, 2020, Jack crossed the Rainbow Bridge to begin his next steps in his journey – to become a guardian angel to us, his family, and those he loves. He took his steps into that next world peacefully, without pain, and surrounded by those whose lives he made whole and who love him so much. Jack was a fighter to the end, and he fought all the tough battles with bravery, loyalty, and most importantly, love.

A lover of food, Lambys, walks, dog parks, naps, squirrels, rabbits, geese, all the car rides, friends, and his family, Jack lived life to the fullest. He has never left our side and went above and beyond to comfort you when you needed comforting. He made us laugh, brought so much joy to our lives, and taught us so many things about life and love. It was like he was created for us. He completed our little family; his purpose in life was to be OUR mini. He will always hold a huge place in our hearts, and we will never forget him.

Last Friday, I took Jack in for another follow-up. It was the earliest appointment we could get as we knew his health was not really progressing. We had some good days in between but overall; we knew the outcome of the follow-up would not be great news. I, however, was not expecting to hear how quickly he had deteriorated and we were now facing a quality of life matter (a matter we repeatedly had asked in the past that they be honest with us about, and they were…much love to those veterinarians whose jobs have to be so hard sometimes). We had to make that painful decision that we knew was coming, but there is no way for one to prepare themselves for how much it will hurt. We were so lucky to have some extra time with him at home after his initial hospital stay, and we were so fortunate to spend time with him with his last moments with us. As I said before, he went peacefully, in my arms, and surrounded by those of us who love and cared for him throughout his life. I know he is no longer in pain.

Mornings and nights are really difficult. It’s odd to readjust to a schedule where we are not working with a myriad of medications and fluids, or constantly checking my phone in fear of missing a call from the vet, and not laying directly with him for as many snuggles and eye hugs that we could get with the time we had left. I miss the clickety-clack sound of his nails on the hardwood; his walk gave a really unique rhythm. I miss those big, expressive eyes, his little bark, his frito feet, petting him, talking to him, seeing him curled up on the bath mat outside of the shower where he’d wait for me, and having him follow me everywhere. Going on walks, dog parks, and even out to our own backyard is hard – getting him a yard was the reason we bought this house. Every corner of the house reminds us of him. It hurts. It really hurts, but we know we are lucky to have had him for all of those years, and despite the heartbreak, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Our love story with our little guy included the good, the great, and the sad. It is a testament to Jack’s courage and love. Jack battled against his recent health issues for over a year. This pain is worth all of those wonderful years we had with Jack. We fought as hard as we could. Jack fought the impossible; I believe he fought to stay as long as he could. I just wish I was able to protect him from time, and if love could have saved him, he would have lived forever.

We are devastated and heartbroken, but we know we were the ones lucky enough to be loved by a Mini Schnauzer named Jack. (That’s what I would always say to him – how did Mama get so lucky to have/be loved by a mini like Jack Wrigley? And then he’d push his head into my chest – his version of a hug – and he’d give me a stubby tail wag. )

To our Jack: we will see you on the other side, our dear, sweet, precious little boy. You are such a good boy; you are the bestest boy ever, Jack ~ Mama loves you.

November 23, 2003 – October 30, 2020

My beautiful Braeden, my soul mate, my favorite traveling companion. You loved everywhere we went together. I miss you so much, I talk to you when I’m in the car and I know you’re close by. I know you’re having a good time and enjoying being by water and watching sunsets. Say hi to Sophie and I can’t wait to see you again ~ Love, Mommy.

October 1, 2005 – July 26, 2019


Sophie, my sweet girl. You were my feline soul mate, we could read each other’s mind. You loved your dog Braeden so much and when you crossed over, I knew she would want to be with you soon after. Thank you for always opening every cabinet door in the house, getting into everything up until you left. I miss you so much but I know you’re with Braeden and thank you for sending Remy, he is so much like you. I can’t wait to see you again, but until then, say hi to Lily, she left us too soon, and run and play with Braeden ~ Love, Mommy.

This is Jett, he was my best friend. He was my everything. I miss his silly ears, his endless kisses and the comfort he gave me. Jett loved eating, he would gladly help himself to my table, all I had to say was ‘you want to share? I wish I could have just one more share. I love you Jett (FooF) I wish I could hold you, smell you, oh how I miss you. You will be forever in my heart until we are together again.

My sweet girl Champagne, my ‘soul pup’ you will always be in my heart. I miss you every moment of every day. I know when I see you again you will jump right into my arms as always and lay your head against my heart. You did that when I first got you at 7 weeks and on the last day of your life. I have a piece of your fur in a locket that I wear everyday. I still say good night to you and good morning to you as always.

Love ‘Mom’

In memory of my beautiful, loyal, gentle giant ‘Hugo’ (Rodwaye Cream Tea). Passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of the 6th July 2020.

I couldn’t have asked for a more even-tempered wonderful friend if I’d have tried. I miss you so much.

I asked God for water
He gave me an ocean
I asked God for a flower
He gave me a garden
I asked God for a tree
He gave me a forest
I asked God for an angel
He gave me you!

QD you were my heart dog. I always thought my life was full until I found you. I didn’t realize what a hole there was until you came and changed my life forever. I will always treasure every special moment I had with you. It was such an incredible blessing to have had your unconditional love in my life. Until we meet again you will live on forever in my heart.
