Sarah Lee - April 2003, 11 years, 6 months old
It's very difficult to express the emotions I feel right
now. I cradled my best friend in my arms and carried her to vet's for
the last time. I held you tight and comforted you until the end. In my
head I know I did what was best for you, but my heart aches so. Life is
lonely now without your companionship.
I had Mike bury you in my garden. You loved to come back with me and
chase the birds off the wall. You were always by my side in the yard.
Hours were spent sunning yourself on the deck, belly up. What a sun
goddess you were.
I remember the day; the girls picked you out of Hannah's litter. You
had this wonderful cowlick running up the center of your back. Little
did I know that those hairs would stand straight up every time you came
to my defense! You may have been small, but you were so brave.
I raised you with my daughters. You enjoyed them while you were ALL
growing up. Oh the memories! Your comforted me when they left home. You
helped to fill my void and I, too, filled yours.
I miss you greeting me at the door when I come home from work. I would
tell about my day and you would tell me about yours. You always
listened so completely. But the evenings are the hardest; I miss our
nightly cuddling on the couch more than anything else. You were my
best friend and will live in my heart forever. The family misses you
dearly. Rest in peace; keep the birds in line in heaven.
Your Loving Family,
Mike, Kim, Sabrina and Natasha

Brittany Walker - April 2003, 15 years old
My little Britt, I had the most wonderful 15 years in my
life, with you. I am so sorry that you got old and sick. The day you
died tore my heart out, I no longer have a faithful friend meeting me
at the door, and waiting to see if I am getting dressed to go to work,
or staying home! You will always remain in my heart, and if I could
have saved you I would. I miss all your little habits,the little
shuffle and prancing. I have always believed in God and heaven, and now
my greatest prayer is that you will be waiting for me. Be happy, I miss
Duke's Grace - April 2003, 12 years old
Grace, by defintion means to pardon, to love at all
times, regardless of any circumstance. Our dear Grace gave us 12 years
of love, laughter and companionship. I cannot remember a childhood
memory of mine where she was not there. She was famous for the
ceaseless licking that her little tongue inflicted on anyone that came
into contact with her. She could lick the frown right off your face.
She truly had a sweet spirit that brought so much joy to our lives. My
favourite memory will always be of her dedicated charge to the squirrel
tree every day in hopes of repeating her victory that was well over a
year earlier. I believe that if there could be a dog in heaven, she is
there, in the lap of my dear mamaw. We love you Grace.
Dee Dee (My Sunshine) - April 2003, 6 years, 3 months old
My Beloved Dee-Dee (My Sunshine) I miss you more then any
words can say, I know your in a better place. You left so suddenly with no
warning, in my arms. No other animal will ever take your place in my heart.
You are now up in heaven with all those babies that don't have any mommies
or daddies with them, you can take care of them the way you did me, when I
didn't feel good. I will forever love you, My Sunshine... Love Always -
Your Mom (Kami)
Marcus Xavier -
April 2003, 14 years, 1 month old
Marcus was my dearest friend. He was a puppy in 1989 when I
was 21 and very ill, and always by my side when I was treated with very
strong anti-cancer drugs. I became well, and got very busy with my career,
and he became strong, and often stayed home alone. I often felt guilty, but
he waited for me to get home, very faithfully. When he got older, I moved
closer to my parents, so that he could have them check in on him
frequently. I still often suffer migraines and complications from the early
days of my illness and just several weeks ago, was home ill from work, and
there was my faithful friend by my side, making sure I was warm and feeling
cared for. What I did not realise was that he was very sick with cancer. I
went on vacation three weeks ago and he enjoyed a last week with his
'grandparents' at their home. I came back and he stopped eating and no
longer barked. He went to the vet. I made the difficult choice to let him
go when I saw he was in pain. His autopsy showed that the cancer was all
through him. He stuck around longer than most would have, and I believe he
did so because he was such a loyal companion. I will never again have a
frind like Marcus.
Charlie Huston -
April 2003, 14 years old
Our comical, sweet best friend, Charlie, passed away on
Easter Sunday 2003. He was a rescue from a local shelter: we had him for 4
1/2 years and loved every minute of it!!!
Charlie will always be remembered for his love (obsession) for pizza and
squeaky toys, hatred of baths! and ability to make everyone smile. We will
miss him terribly, as will his adoptive sister, Penny.

- April 2003, 1 years, 10 months old
Hugo, I miss you with all of my heart. You were a special
part of my life and and a big part of every day. I wish I Could relive the
day I lost you and protect you. I wish you were still here to sit up with
your beautiful little face cocked to one side, pounce against my leg to let
me know you are still there, be my little shadow, sleep behind my knees. No
one can replace you. There is a hole left in our family. We love
LeeAnna, Maddie and Steve Matelli

in our hearts. Our home is so empty without you. Rest in peace dear
friend. Thank you for all the love you gave us.
Whizzer Dressler - April 2003, 6 years old
Whizzer was a wonderful dog. She always knew what she
wanted in life - that was to be taken into a home with people to love her
- and that's exactly what she got. I have three wonderful children who
took her in and gave her a wonderful six years. Whizzer went every where
we went. My daughter, Stephanie, especially loved this dog. Whizzer had
been there for Stephanie to cuddle when she needed her as she was always
there for her. We couldn't ask for a better dog, than Whizzy. We all
loved her and going to miss her alot. WE LOVE YOU

Kaming lahat, Dad, Tita, Anj, Carol, Estela at Nida, na
nacu-cute-tan sa iyo ay hindi ka namin makakalimutan. Sana ay hindi ka pa
nawala sa mundong ito katulad ni Muning. Mabilis ka kasing tumakbo
patungo sa finish line, iyan tuloy and nangyari. Wala na ngayong
makakaaway si Muning. We will never forget you Chin-Chin. Thanks for your
presence in our lives and God Bless!

To my Love
If tears could build a stairway
And memories a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven
And bring you home again.
You came into our life so unexpectedly, but the mark you left here will
forever burn in my heart. May you find peace again, and be able to run
again. I love you, Rocky.
Pepper Ferreira - Pepperdog - April 2003, 17 years, 6 months old
To the best and most loyal friend, companion, little girl
we will ever have. You came into our lives 17 plus years ago - not a day
went by without you here. Never did you require much from us. And how you
were loved by all. I know that you are in heaven waiting as you always
did. Your cute little face will never be forgotten. And we will never
have a wonderful pet/companion like you ever again. My heart misses you,

Licorice - April
2003, 10 years old
To Our Besh-b (baby Licorice),
Words will never express how much we love you and miss you. Your absence
makes our home feel very empty. You brought ten years of joy to our lives
and we know that your life was happy and you felt alot of love from us.
We are so sorry that you had to get sick and pass away. We hope that you
are at peace and all of your hurts have gone away. You have a very
special place in our hearts, and you could never be replaced.
We Love You, Mom, Kandace, and Meow
Spencer Roo - April 2003, 12
Spencer Roo. I am desperate to see you. You were so poorly, I only
had one choice - to give you an easy way out. No surgery, no tests.
There was no hope for you to recover as you had pneumonia and you were old.
I love you Spencie I always will, yesterday, today and tomorrow.
I am so proud of you too, how good you were with Sidonie - you really showed us all
how pure and full of love your heart was. You knew even though I had a new baby,
our bond was the same.
You and me forever Roo - I love you so much.
Sasha - May 2003, 16 years old
My best friend and companion for 16 years.
She shared my joy and licked my tears. She warmed my feet and guarded my side,
sometimes the only one who understood when I cried. It's hard to bear that we're
now apart, but she will never be forgotten and lives on in my
Dudley Moore -
April 2003, 17 years, 10 months old
Dudley Moore, My Baby, was born on D-Day, the sixth of
June in 1985 and was sent to heaven on Good Friday, April 18th this
year. He taught me so much about unconditional love. He liked people
and animals if they liked him. He would lie on his back for hours if
someone would rub his belly. He was so hyper; in 1986, I took him to
obedience school. He didn't learn very much because he was so excited
to see the other dogs. It was like taking a child to the amusement
park. I miss him so much.
Paul Moore, Dudley's Daddy
Lowrider - April 2003,
3 years, 4 months old
Lowrider gave the best kisses in the world. I'm so sorry I
wasn't a few seconds faster then you would have been with us. I keep
thinking that we were blessed with you for three years and maybe it's greed
that still wants you so badly to be here. 'Till we meet again at the Bridge
I'll still be loving ya.
Shivers - April 2003, 12 years old
A loving friend, protector and faithful companion
was Toby. I know he'll be in heaven waiting for me, ready to
have his tummy rubbed and to be fed cheese. Thanks to God for
sharing such a loving heart with our family.
a.k.a. Mama Maxie - April 2003, 8 years old
Although my dachsie was a boy, I called him Mama
Max because of the love I had for him. He was my baby...he
brought me great laughter and joy. Watching him bark at birds or
sleep on top of his other four-legged brother Eddie, he was
funny. He would howl at me when I told him 'I love you' and
slept with me every night. When our daughter came, he would
sleep next to or under her crib and would bark at me when she
woke. My most precious moment was being with my baby and holding
him as he went on to the Rainbow Bridge. He never left my side
and in his final moments of life, I was not about to leave
his....I love you baby and will see you
Bozley a.k.a. B.B. and
'The King' - April 2003, 15 years old
You were truly 'man's best friend'. There will never be
another like you. You are thought about and missed every day. We love you
always and forever.
Alexander Eastwell - April 2003, 3 years, 7 months old
You were only with us for such a short time but
what a time we had. We fell in love with you the very first time
we saw you. You grew up to be such a beautiful little man.
Sometimes I think I can see you in the back yard chasing your
beloved butterflies. Little man, you are so sadly missed. Rest
peacefully under your butterfly bush.
