Forget me, not

Death is nothing at all. It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains
exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived
so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each
other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in
the easy way which you always used to. Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be
spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life
means all that it was ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is
absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well.

My angel baby... I miss you so. The emptiness in my heart... the emptiness in my arms.
Toby Evans - October 2008, 10 years old
My baby boy had back problems for about four years that I know of. He was the bully of the neighbourhood. He would bite or snap at anyone or any of his species that he could. We loved him dearly, he was just as gentle with his family as he was agressive to outsiders. Our hearts are breaking in two. He has a partner still, whose name is Kizzy. They had a litter of five together. Oh Toby, I know you're guarding heaven's gate now. We'll meet again buddy.
Hugs Mommy and Daddy
Buddy Everyone's Friend - October 2008, 18 years old
Buddy was a rescue we got from a puppy mill auction. He had bred over five thousand puppies in his lifetime. It was high time Buddy could take his well deserved rest. At our house he always enjoyed a sausage biscuit in the mornings and little chicken bites whenever. He loved ice cream, too, and cookies - oh my! It was my pleasure to make him his very first bed of his own...soft and fuzzy and cuddly. He was a joy to behold - that's for sure. And whenever he saw a puppy his eyes always had that soft tender look in them. Buddy became stricken with bowel and liver cancer in March and we knew his days were numbered. When Buddy came and told us he was too tired to eat his biscuit and partake of his beloved ice cream we knew that last journey must be trod and so it was in our arms he passed into the Father's care.
Buddy we will always love you and are so eagerly looking forward to the day when we are reunited once more forever and ever. Sail easy my love !
Heathen Jenkins - October 2008, 5 years, 10 months old
Heathen was born in my home with his sister, Hannah, and another male who died at birth. Heathen earned his name. He was always up to something, whether it was dashing out the door when the pizza delivery guy came or jumping out a car window at the mall (when we lost him for two days). Heathen adored Hannah and Midge (a sister from a later litter). Heathen loved life amd having a very good time. He was the father of 14 puppies. Heathen adored his family and all of our friends. Heathen was the love of my life. Heathen had injured his back and we had to put him down. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. The pain I endured at his loss was equal to my first born child who also died at birth. I'll never get over my loss and my heart breaks everyday. I love and miss Heathen and always will. He was my life and heart.
