Rexy Poo, you were our first hello and our hardest goodbye. You were our baby boy. We brought you home at 8 weeks old. Everywhere we went, you came with us. You brought so much love and joy into our lives.
We miss you so much. Words cannot express the sadness and loneliness we feel. The day we had to put you down was the worst day of our lives, and we will never forget it. There are no words that can describe the pain we are in. You were our best friend, our baby boy, one of the family. Life has been very hard without seeing you. We love you so much, always have and always will. You are always in our hearts and our minds forever and ever.
We miss you so much. We will never forget you.
Our Rexy Poo, our Sexy Rex. Love you forever, and miss you so much.
Love, Riley, Ann Marie, Brady, Courtney, Madison, Nevaeh, and everyone else’s lives you have touched.
Parker, the past 15 years have been the greatest in my entire life because you were in and we got to be together. You made everyday better, you lit up a room with just you being there. Everywhere we went, people were just amazed by you, they were in awe by you. People always said that they wanted to have you. They said that you are better then their own dog and want you instead. Who else has that effect on people? You are the strongest, cutest, most adorable and loyal dog the world has ever seen. You were not a dog, you are family and to me you are my best friend and brother. My entire life, we grew up together side my side. It was incredible. We got to be best buddies and I am so grateful for that. I am truly honoured that I got to be with you Parker, it was destiny. I am writing this down, it is still hard to believe what happened because this is something that I never thought I would do because I never thought you would never not be in my life. You came into my life when I was 4 years old, you are all I have ever known and deep down I thought that we would be together fighting crime and going on adventures. The world lost a lot of light when you left. You have given me so much love Parker and sometimes I think how did I deserve you, Parker? You are truly a wonder!! I love you more than anything. Nearly 15 years with you was not enough but I would not trade any second of it and you left such a massive impact in my life, I know you will never ever leave me. By posting this on the website, it will preserve your memory and allow people to know just how amazing you are. It will allow people years from now to know who you are and the legacy you left on everyone around you. How special and irreplaceable you are. You are one in a million Parker. You are my everything. I have faith that you are watching over me and I have faith that I will see you again. Thank you for being my brother, my best friend to always go to. Thank you for never leaving my side. I love you forever and always.

I’m a 12-year-old boy, and an only child. Pepper was with me from my birth. She was 17 when we had to euthanize her. Because she was a pet from even before I was born, she was very close to me. She was like my sister. I remember coming home from school and her greeting me at the door. Now, when I come home, the house is silent. But, now I always think about the good times that we had. It’s sad, but I still love her the same.
Pepper was not a very healthy cat. She developed a kidney failure at around age 16. Sometime in May she stopped eating. It was then that we had to make the decision to let her go. I came home from school and I remember thinking Where is my cat? She always greets me at the door. Then it hit me: She was gone from this world. We will always love you Pepper. ♥

The hardest part of losing you was the first day I went into the barn and wasn’t greeted by that familiar nicker. I talk about you a lot, and I think that sometimes people think I haven’t come to terms with the loss of you, but it’s just that I have so many wonderful memories that always bring a smile to my face. When I picture you, I see you running in a field of tall green grass scattered with sunflowers and the wind is blowing through your mane and tail……one day you will look behind you and you will see me there running to catch you.
You came to us in your retirement and immediately we fell in love with your kind and gentle soul. You were always part of our family and you were a great source of comfort to me when I needed it the most. You put your head on my shoulder and in that simple gesture an understanding and love passed between us that I will carry in my heart for you always.

Certain moments in our lives stand out in our memories…..some extremely joyful, some gut-wrenching. Being close to an animal gives us many moments and memories.
When we lost Johnny, it was sudden. He stopped eating and was experiencing kidney failure. Worse, my husband was out of the country….we talked on the phone and agreed to the inevitable. There were no choices left and the decision was fair but fast. Too fast. Months later, memories of loss are triggered when we see Johnny’s collar or places we walked. We experience the loss of him again. Grief knows no time limit and comes in waves. We miss Johnny’s happy presence and the sight and smell and feel of him. But we are starting to talk more about all the days we did have together. We wouldn’t change a thing. Johnny was a great friend and he made us better humans.
Frankie was our philosopher dog. He looked right into a person’s face and he seemed to know them. Frankie was abandoned, tied to a tree and left…..traumatized, underweight, mistrustful…and found by my husband. More like a person than a dog, we called Frankie our little man. He was a big personality in a compact body….with a terrier attitude and a hound happy-howl. For the first year, he trusted only us, and then his heart and mind gradually opened to other people. We had almost 14 memorable years together. Frankie was slowing down and treated for several medical issues in the last 18 months. Our hearts ached to say goodbye. Yet, he was getting ready. When the day came, our wonderful vet and amazing tech came to our home and released Frankie on a blanket, in his own yard, with not a moment’s stress for him. We still miss him hugely. We loved him enormously. We did right by each other.
